    The double post was not my fault.

    TED,
    Waiting for the obligatory "Of course a liberal would say that" post.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That is, after all, why we have government -- to protect the rights of the people.
    Most zoning laws are to protect people and property from unsafe stuff, not necessarily property values.
    That's your burden to bear.

    Want to protect the value, join a HOA.
    Good luck with those boot thugs, I'd rather have the wind mills.

    You don't have a right to forever valuable property, it doesn't exist.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    This is green energy compared to other sources. The turbines are immense and the homeowners object based on ascetic considerations. They value their view.

    What do you think. This has been a huge controversy in these parts.
    If you could make a more biased poll.

    You've placed multiple pro-wind turbine options, 2 random options about Obama being an idiot and Bush ruining this nation, and two options against wind turbines which support aesthetic arguments only (possibly to make the anti-turbine side look like we only care about "how the enviournment looks" or that we quiet simply do not care about the enviournment at all) when of course the actual anti-turbine argument focuses on its unreliability to generate electricity and the health issues that the public will face from having Turbines.

    There are far better options out there to generate electricity. Massive metal polls stuck in remote area's is hardly helping the enviournment anyway - its disrupting habitats and causing a lot of deaths for the bird species.

    Very pro-sustainable, eh?

    It sounds like we need to ban windows for the sake of the birds!

    Incidentally, I broke down and resorted to Weed and Feed on my lawn this Spring. I had some invasive weeds in my grass. I've found 3 dead robins so far. The stuff should be banned, in my opinion. I'll never use it again.

    My landlady used to have my lawn sprayed with chemicals. They used to make my cats sick. The chemi lawn dude denied it. I made him stop spraying and my cats have not gotten sick since then.

    no, we should ban birds for the sake of windows, i've had windows broken 3 times by suicidal magpies in breeding season, and the bastards love to swoop people too.



    they ain't exactly little birds.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
