Keep hitting back, Claire. The moonbats are everywhere. The useful idiots really do earnestly believe this is all about “saving” the environment. But environmental policies just serve as tools for the power hungry. Anti-”sprawl” = urban infill = vote manipulation/districting through land use planning. Increase populations in the areas that vote blue – urban areas; disallow growth in red areas – rural areas. According to recent surveys, the political divide is about 50-50 conservative – liberal so I am sure politics plays a big role in “growth management”. We need a ruralization movement to counter the “sustainability” one.
Back when this country was being formed, they should have put in a limit, like a 3 strikes law, on how many times a piece of legislation can be modified in repeated attempts to forward a specific agenda.
For as long as I can remember, it’s been the same fucking thing over and over and over again. The traitors come up with some anti-American bullshit change, and then keep hammering away at it until it finally passes.
It’s a good part of the reason things are so out of control right now.

You need to start a petition for a ballot proposition that requires all public utilities (e.g. power, water, sewage, trash disposal) for incorporated cities be located solely within the existing boundaries of said incorporated cities. You might also include all food production, too, then magnanimously allow that to be removed during negotiations (don’t wanna be seen as inflexible, do we?).
As justification, you could claim that it is socially unfair, economically unjust, threatening to wildlife, and ecologically unsustainable for urban centers to leech off rural areas trying to maintain their connection to the natural environment.

And while you’re at it, rent the land under the solar panels for 1 cent per acre to cultivate mushrooms. . .
DougM & Claire (6) Good luck with that ballot propisition. The only way you can ever achieve that is to get rid of Waste Management Hog Whitman Says:
Am currently turning the Pages to the book of Job…
Lessee… there’s Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Joshua, Judges, Ruth. Oh shit, I forgot Deuteronomy! I almost always forget Deuteronomy, again! I like to think that that’s forgivable because nothing rhymes with Deuteronomy, but maybe that’s just me. [okay, maybe Colonectomy comes close, but don’t tell Anybody I said that, mmmkay?]
Uhm, where were we? Oh yeah, Job. I’ll get there… just have some patience, fer chrissakes. I’m even beginning to think that there’s a reason why they call it a “Job”. Have you ever thought about that? It wouldn’t surprise me. I have.
Yea! I just found it! It’s on page 411 [prophetic?], right before Psalms. I like Psalms. Maybe I’ll read them too, while I’m at it. Proverbs are also good, but they can wait ‘till things get settled-down around here.
Meanwhile, I need to keep watching the 1956 Cecil B. DeMille classic, The Ten Commandments on my ROKU, because it’s only a 48hr. rental, I think.
