As much as I love Long Beach, if I were about to place a major facility there, I would be very concerned about the influence of the 3 city councilmen that seem to be anti-business. While the other 5 and our mayor has done a great job recognizing where the jobs and tax dollars come from, and thus controlling the madness, having a negative influence in the city would cause me great pause.(Can you even imagine considering a Los Angeles location knowing they are 100's of times more anti-business than Long Beach?)

Our residents need to be aware of what funds our cities and our lifestyles. There will be no clean air unless business succeeds and is able to offer jobs.

Time to focus on what has built our economy; small business.

GDP grew in the 3rd quarter, jobs are always lagging the numbers recovery in each recession. Those thinking about long-term recovery, know the enviroment will be a big winner in the conversion to biofuels & biopower -- saw a cool site; Balkingpoints ; incredible satellite view of earth
