Is he using a gun to get folks to sell to him?

Anybody out there ever hear of "The American Way" ?

If he gets to own the Town, HE runs it. If you don't want that, than stop accepting his "Filthy" money.

Bill, you have not done your homework regarding this situation. He is not using a gun, but lots of money that he is giving to a few locals who's families owned huge plots of land that is/was farms. Additionally, all these deals are presented as one thing and than morph into another, with a complete disregard for the democratic process and freedom of information. I am all for anyone doing legitimate business, but this has been under the table from the go, with nary a word spoken of the true intent of the projects until they are already being constructed. Unfortunately, as we are finding out, there is no real recourse if the state government does not get involved. Please, read up on the facts, and then see if you still think this is the "American Way".
