How about the stores that sold outdoor equipment & supplies that have been paying taxes for years. Now their tax dollars go to bringing in competition that will run them out of business.
How about companies in that area for decades growing adding jobs & supporting the community for decades. What do they get?
Property tax incentives generally occur in rural areas that have little existing industry and few jobs. They go to operations like large distribution centers that have no local competition.

Others, like Cabela's, are unique operations that attract satellite businesses such as motels and restaurants.

<quoted text> You want to make the game relevant again. Move the three point line the same two feet. Widen the court two feet on each side. Raise the basket two feet. Stop the traveling, palming, and contact. Why is everything about race with you loony libtards? No wonder this country is so screwed up. I just happen to think a once great sport has been relegated to a back yard pick me up game. Nothing racist about it.
Relevant? To who?

I have to agree. Love watching high school and college basketball. As a basketball nut, played some, coached for more than 25 years I ignore the NBA. Iget sick watching most of the when the anthem is played before an NBA game, they, the players, are scratching their butt, adjusting their jock strap, giving hi fives, laughing and talking.

According to CBS, Hicks also told investigators that "a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command Africa.SDRq This, CBS noted, was "in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration

<quoted text>So , what you are arguing is that you have every right to belong to the same fruitcake, crazy Sharia-panic caucus as Andrew C McCarthy III and voice your fears of boogeymen Jihadists hiding under everyone's bed in America? I agree. You are free to pursue your happiness anyway you want, even if it is entertaining crack-pot opinions and conspiracy-mongering. "Believe it or not, the United States was created entirely separate from any religion. The right to pursue happiness - as long as it does not impinge upon others - is the foundation of our state." -Gore Vidal.
When it comes to fruitcakes, you believe this president has yours and everyone else's best interests in mind when his own interests of power and a one-party system by demonizing the opposition is the only interest he has in mind with the help of his propagandists, of course - not to mention modeling his vision after a Marxist philosopy.

So, basically, you really have no room to talk about fruitcakes.

It's a fact the weak are more susceptible to believing lies.
Does that mean we are now a weak country? And are liberals actually defending a nation of weakness?
Help me out here. I've been totally stumped trying to figure out the liberal mentality. Am I getting closer?
Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice has lied for 8 months about Benghazi... That's what liberals do best LIE. Liberals choose to remain loyal to their abusers...

Should mention that when Hillary joined the WalMart board the company only had about 700 stores___they were really just beginning to pick up steam.
That's why I LMAO when dunces like Carol talk about the power of Vallerie Jarrett___that lady couldn't have carried Hillary's briefcase around.
Hillary was a heavy hitter in Arkansas only because she was married to the Governor.

Hillary was also the main reason that Clinton lost re-election after his first term.

That's where Robert "KKK" Byrd, the DEMOCRAT who was hailed as a hero by Hairball Reid came from.

Backwood hillbillies born and raised in West Virginia are DermocRATS.

Thanks for pointing that out, Boner.

Let's see what he really said shall we Carol?
"Look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own," he said. "You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges.
"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that," he continued. "Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don't do on our own."

It was about education and infrastructure stupid, without which the most savvy business person couldn't be successful.

Fox grabbed this and beat it up day in day out. Yet it was in the same context as the Kennedy speech. "Ask not what my country can do for me, but what i can do for my country" These ringers are so into self and greed they can't see past their own stupidity on the power of collective infrastructure giving them those opportunities to succeed. Not once being thankful for that but a compulsion to complain that someone else might get something as a handout because they weren't as successful. This is what those extremists use for propaganda to commit terrorist acts against the West. Not because of benevolence but because of greed.
Language and propaganda go together like OzRitz and PeeDePoop.

<quoted text>Democrats jumping ship now critical of Rice's Benghazi explanation, amid more damaging evidence. Many Congressional democrats are distancing themselves from the Obama administrationís explanation of the Benghazi, amid mounting evidence that suggests the information was revised by the obama administration to intentionally mislead Americans..
If NOT for obama's man-made-disaster, Benghazi would NOT be an issue you idiot...
It's a complete mystery to me how such indisputable evidence that has left no doubt whatsoever in anyone's mind that the Obama administration did, in fact, intentionally misled Americans but, yet, not even so much as a yawn by most liberals.

Is it the parallel universe we're living in again?

Because we all know in a normal universe, Republicans would be resigning left and right and a presidential resignation would likely be forthcoming.

So you're just beginning to notice this contact thingy?

Isiah Thomas lead the Detroit Pistons "bad boys" to titles with team mates like Bill Lambeer.

Lambeer founded "combat basketball" at Notre Dame and interestingly Lambeer is about the same age as Flack___so when were you watching all this gentle white boy basketball?

Or did you just hear about it from your grandad?

Odd how many of the right whiners posting here don't like the NBA. Yep, they can't quite put their finger on why. Other sports have had rule changes. Other sports have fights - likely more than the NBA. In the NFL, payers break rules all the time & get away with it. Want to win that race, get your buddy to nudge your competitor.

But, there's just something special about the NBA that droves the right whiners nutso.

They be "thug wannabes" in the NBA wink wink
