    So, people have a Constitutional right to object to those dumb ass windmills.
    People have a Constitutional right to object to anything they want, but that doesn't give the government the authority to arbitrarily restrict the activities of a property owner on their own property.

    You didn't buy the view, and if you weren't expecting a certain noise level from your neighbors to begin with then you should live in a cave.

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

    Because they can be sold politically as environmentally friendly power sources, of course!

    Because the US is going backwards back to Reaganism.

    Re: How do you feel about homeowners protesting electric generating wind turbines?

    While wind turbines are much more environmentally-friendly than many other sources of energy, I can understand why some homeowners would object. Ignoring the functionality of the wind turbine for a second, and just think of it as any other eyesore. Of course the people who live nearby are going to object, since it could lower their property values. Are they spoiled rich folks? Yeah, perhaps. But I can still understand their point of view.

    Fortunately, there are many parts of the country where people are eager for more jobs and actually desire wind turbines. There is a lot of open land in Oklahoma and Texas where property values are relatively low anyway, and people would love to have the wind energy industry set up shop in their town.
