I have family, friends that live there and property ownership there. Still go there, shop there. As far as I can tell you luckily MARRIED into Chatham county. Shown very little support to any new local biz endeavors. Bragged about going OUT of county to do your shopping in surrounding counties because Chatham didn't suit you.
For the record, you vote for people that are anti-business. You've made that abundantly clear. You don't support an auto manufacturer either, which means you really don't support local jobs outside of the few mom and pop ventures that fit a very narrow view of what you find "acceptable".
Thus, you making this charge is about as hypocritical as it gets.
Work outside of county~in general it seems you just THUMB your nose to the county outside of a mattress. Why don't you go back to Yankee Land that seems to invade and then tell us all what's best, better for all of us TRUE locals? Phtt!
The Yankee Land liberals are the ones trying to determine what's "best for us locals", you tendentious turd. You're in lock step with whatever crazy plans they dream up. I bet you gleefully voted for the same snobby gits that tried to circumvent the will of the people and institute the Land Transfer Tax. The same slimy, imbecilic sphincters that wanted the Major Corridor Ordinance.
It's the transplants who want to come to Chatham and shut the door behind them. Then tell the locals what they can and can't do with land that's been in their family for generations. It's the left that wants every land owner with less than 10 acres to have to come, hat in hand, and beg the BOC for permission to build a small barn. Why? Because the laws they put in place are meant to give them the maximum amount of control. Every ditch is a "seasonal stream" or some such nonsense. And therefore they can restrict people's rights based on fuzzy headed notions of "environmentalism".
NO. Just NO. You don't know what you're talking about, and every time you manage to hunt and peck out your next message, it serves to once again prove that some people are nothing more than useful idiots for interests that don't give a DAMN about anything but themselves.
