China is business friendly, but....

I'll take nursing homes and medical practices if the alternative is heavy industry like cement plants. Perhaps the retirees are vocal because their coming from places in the NE where they've seen what lower environmental restrictions look like. You should live in China. They have a booming economy, almost no environmental restrictions and on days when the smog isn't too thick, they can go outside without their masks on.

And by the way, don't worry about the earth--- the earth will be just fine when we're all gone. It's the people you have to worry about. Your children and grandchildren will inherit the place you leave them.

Don't get me wrong, I think all of us who line up at the new Lowes or build houses with more space than we could ever need are all hypocrites when we complain about "the environment problem", but I don't think not wanting heavy industry in our area makes us anti-business-- or even liberal for that matter!

As for taxes, we can probably agree on that.
