Of all the leakage and waste in the Federal System this wasn't even worth the time to read.

50% of the federal budget goes to social programs, 20% goes to defense...and we're discussing flowers? I'm sorry but there are bigger fish to fry and personally I don't care who's stealing flowers.

The federal flowers are important to you because you're paying for them with your tax money. ************ So if the flowers are paid for with our tax money than is it really stealing if we pick the flowers?

Considering the fertilizer, er thinking that regularly emanates from Capitol Hill and Pennsylvania Avenue, the federal grounds in D.C. must be some of the most fertile in the country!

Homeless people in our Capital are stealing the flowers. I'd say the solution is to not worry about it too much. You can't fine them, but you could put them in jail, which is probably better than living on the street. What else is there? Perhaps helping them become contributing members of society, but nah, we don't do that. You know, rugged individualism and personal responsibility and all that.
