You must be farsighted.
lol...comes in handy for peeping toms.
think about this.....
governments have been utilizing "emminent domain" to procure land for developers...purportedly for the "common good".
The idea of increasing the tax base and stimulating local economies might even win support from a majority of people.
Then consider domestic oil reserves offshore and in Alaska that have been placed off limits by government....the same government that whines about lessening dependence on foreign sources of oil.
In this case a small group of fanatical envirowhackos continue to stand against the common good.
Government is psychotic!!
The biggest argument against drilling locally is a threat of spillage and pollution.
However, dozens of rigs in the Gulf of Mexico were damaged or destroyed by a category 5 hurricane last summer with little or no spillage or pollution.
Where are the sane polititians who are willing to stand up against their psychotic colleagues and the crazy tree-huggers...... for the common good?!
