You just have to love the state of Commiefornia.. land of tree huggers,, that live in appartment buildings in San Fransisco, hardly ever get out of the city,, they are too busy protesting, and picketing... But they love trees, spotted owls, and any other wackko venue they can attach themselves to..
I travel out to that area all the time,, it is so amusing to hear the local wackos talk,,, they have no clue... when I tell them they are way off, and tell them that since they own, maintain and get their hands dirty with only a flower pot, and I own 175+ acres of 'nature', they usually shut up...
My other favorite is people who live near airports.. my company was offered access to Long Beach airport,, and we service that airport very well, we have created a business boom, and employement boom for the area... But the promised extra arrival/departure slots that were promised early on, were denied due to the 'added noise'... well due to competition, the noisy MD80's have gone away, our quiet Airbus' have 1/3 the 'noise footprint' of the MD80's, but the city council doesn't want to look a science... they just see more arrivals and departures... AND, ge this.. The military opperates C141's out of there,, a very noisy plane, and UPS opperates very noisy older freight hauling planes in/out of there... we are the quiet guys,, and are denied what was promised at the 'get-go' What a bunch of wackkos
