Again for you to read.
Only reason some of those places are hiring is because some of their employees left (moved away) or they are constantly letting them go. Not sure if that is because of their incompetence or they wanted to leave. Either way, that's a negative in most people's eyes. Not all, but most.

Nobody really chooses to live here. They are obligated to be here and stay because of those feelings of obligation. To work or family or whatever.

I take it back. I'm sure there are a few idiots that like it here. That would be the trashy people who fit in real well b/c they like drinking and mud ridin' or whatever rednecks do. I know an attorney that loves it here because he gets to be a big fish in a little pond. If he lived in Monroe or Little Rock or even a town the size of Conway he would be a teeny tiny little piss-ant fish. So yeah.

O this too...

When you live in a big nice house here you get to feel like somebody. If you live in a town where there are lots and lots of big nice homes you feel average. Assholes with a need to feel like "somebody" like small crappy towns like ours.

No, dumbass. The employees didn't move away. They're expanding. It's been on the front page of the paper.

A lot of people actually choose to live here. It's a great place to call home.

Looks like you shut their lying up. Anybody that doesn't have their head buried in the sand know that many of our local industries are expanding and hiring. It's old news.

In my opinion El Dorado has serious problems. The same problems that a lot of other small towns in our country are going through though. The difference for any town is how those problems are being handled. That is where I think we are failing. Our town leaders are either in denial that we have problems at all or are focused on retail and festivals. They are economically incompetent to every degree. Its been said plenty of times that a population our size and with our demographics can only support so much retail, and festivals make the town more fun but aren't going to create permanent, year round jobs for anyone except the people in charge of them.
I also can't help but think that there is nothing the officials can do, incompetent or not. Our federal government has positioned itself to punish business, which is exactly why most industry has fled. We have the highest corporate tax rate in the entire world. On top of that are high state taxes and income taxes. And we wonder why the industry leaves? El Dorado used to be an industry town. When industry started fleeing America it naturally left this town too. El Dorado is a perfect example of an industrial-flight area. So many of our officials have given up on business and chose to go the "festival town" route in an act of great desperation. Other than a couple of shiny new buildings, these people have given the town nothing. And they shouldn't exactly be expected too. They are doing all they know how to do.
The only thing that might bring industry back in would be to work with the businessmen that want to open up shop. We just missed an opportunity with a boating company, something that was highly publicized and scrutinized as a major failure, something representative of how out of touch with reality many of our officials can be. Something else would be to drastically reduce land tax and any other taxes that will affect business but that will never happen. After all, we've gotta make those evil businessmen pay their fair share!
We're all entitled to our opinion, though your fabrication is clearly wrong.

I love to accuse multiple others of being the same person when really I love talking to myself and pretending to be numerous people more than anyone else. Why? Because I'm angry, hateful and miserable, I guess.

Obviously you must be the dumbass otherwise you would know that many people leave jobs here for many reasons. Typical response from a southern small minded idiot.

if by "cartel" and "Captive audience" that we pay much more for gasoline than other towns in Ark. even thought the gas is produced and hauled from here in ElDo, you are correct. The local newspaper routinely runs a comparison of gasoline prices among AR towns; El Do's is always highest or near the top!(electricity, water & natural gas prices high here, too -- not to mention real estate--if you can find any available!

<quoted text> Agree. That person didn't say anything about hating kids or wanting to be alone. This is the kind of ridiculous crap the Topix stalking psycho says all the time. Oh and if you disagree with anything he says you are "miserable" and need to "get out" of El Dorado. Seriously even if you like it here, like I do, but point something out that suggests El Dorado is less than perfect he will freak out. Whats the most odd is that the psycho accuses others of being miserable when he is the guy that has started not one but two hate campaigns against good people in this town. He's the guy that went on a tear a couple of weeks ago about one woman in particular and stalked an entire family for years. I say people with that much hate in them are the miserable ones. People who dislike El Dorado are a little whiney but don't seem like miserable psychotics to me...
We are a middle class couple (not college educated) who have made a good living in ElDorado, raised 4 boys, managed our money, still live and work here, but are now able to go to Hot Springs every other weekend where there is good shopping, restaurants and entertainment. We would not move away from our kids and grandkids, all here, so I think we have the best of both worlds...thankful and not complaining.
Towns are Just Genetics

Ever wonder why Irvine California, LaJolla, Scottsdale, AZ and other smaller communities within greater metro areas high such a high standard of living? It's simply genetics. The better the genetics, the better the city. Irvine is rich and super safe because of the people that live there. If the Eldoites had the expectations on their children that these folks do the problems would not be there. El Do's promise is only in one city in the entire USA and even that can't do much because you have to be willing to get off your ass and do something. El do is a dichotomy because it does have a lot to offer in some respects but yet an embarrassment because it's held back by the lack of initiative of the people and their lack of morals. This is interesting because years ago El Do had mostly good and friendly people. Now I'd say only about 1/3rd can be trusted. It's a shame when people waste their potential and don't even care about doing so in favor of partying and whoring which will then sap any remaining potential a person has. Children need to be taught that they have a duty to society, their family and self to be the best they can be in all respects. However, we now have multi-generational losers who just want to slack and have no responsibility.

And the newspaper selectively chooses the towns that have a Murphy USA location. Since El Dorado does not, the town is usually 8-15 cents more per gallon. That's not a "cartel," it's a lack of competition. That soon will be changing in a few months

It's not genetics. It's a matter of access to resources. Traditionally, towns were established on rivers and bays due to access of food, materials, shipping, and transportation. El Dorado, mainly the surrounding area, was thriving for years due to these measures, with access to the Ouachita River. When the interstate highway system was implemented in the 1950s, it encouraged more companies to use this source for shipping, and any town that has not had access to an interstate has been on decline since the 1970s. Every bullshit town you pulled out to discuss, which many people around here may not be familiar with, actually all have access to an interstate. We don't. It prohibits industry growth, making it harder to attract retail and chain restaurants, and limits upside potential for growth. However, many may like this lack of news, as we have fewer vehicle fatalitities, utilize less fuel, and people spend less time commuting and more time with family/at leisure/ working and being productive.
