Its better than having every bit of space filled with human beings and there possesions. I think that would be a kind of real hell. human development free national parks are the wisest things governments around the world have done. the preserve the natural biodiversity and wildlife create natural lung zones for the planets health and are a haven and restorer for people stressed out from the rush and stuff of the overpopualted cities.
You don't need to tell me that! I'm all for open space. CT is becoming nothing but a litter box of strip malls and cheesy developments. And our liberal legislature, who the pseudo-environmentalists adore in this state, are diverting open space money into the general fund, so they can spend it on social programs, including elderly and low-income DEVELOPMENTS. Instead of refurbishing existing developments, these dedicated environmentalists are turning under acres, paving it, building a piece of crap on it, then filling it with noisy, dirty boors.

So, forgive me if I'm skeptical of the true intentions of far-left governments. They invariably put their causes and rhetoric before anything of substance. But hey, they know the people are dumb enough to believe anything, no matter how many times they've been lied to.

Your language is rough but your ideas are sound. I don't know why this is such an either/or game. My construction-employed husband tells me it is far easier and cheaper to knock things down and start over than to refurbish and renovate. But it does bother me when there are huge abandoned K-Marts in town with the garden center on the left, that get torn down to create huge Lowes Hardware stores with the garden center on the left. But I guess the demolition method creates more jobs, so it is best, right?

Whatever happened to common sense and moderation?

Hunting and fishing is strictly regulated in virtually all states by actual qualified biologists. Thanks for the offer from the activists to keep things in check but it's well under control. And the term you meant to use is renewable resources, not sustainable. But don't worry. I'm sure you will get it down before you graduate.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana's state government ended the last fiscal year with its third consecutive balanced budget and a bigger surplus at a time when many states are making major spending cuts or considering tax increases to deal with deficits.

"We are standing on firm, sound, financial ground," state Auditor Tim Berry said Thursday.
State officials closed the books on the fiscal year that ended on June 30 with revenues exceeding spending by about $321 million. That's in part because of spending restraints Gov. Mitch Daniels ordered last December after revenue projections were lowered because of a sagging economy.
Let's see. California is Bankrupt, Indiana has a balanced budget. Who has the "slacker state?"
Big difference between balanced budget and no deficit. Sadly we have both

California gets 80 cents in services for every dollar is sends to the US Government in taxes. Indiana gets more than a dollar for every dollar. This makes Indiana a slacker state, not able to carry its own weight and relying on other states to help it.

I wonder how much your computer technology will cost when you push California out, like the movies? you'll be paying more. Like your weapons of war? We'll charge you 10x for that.

What you go to offer, more corn?

Movies and weapons? Wow, what a loss to the nation. Movies can be filmed anywhere, weapons can be made anywhere. If I had to choose between corn or movies, I pick corn.

I agree. When it comes to larger buildings that could be used as warehouses.

But, I'm hoping when they demo'd the K-Mart building. It was because of the structure requirements.

Because most Lowes usually have higher roof lines, selves and different products. All these things have weight issues. And can effect the foundation of the building, etc. Including using forklefts, etc. These things have to be considered as structure stability, etc. And safety of course. Image is everything, so having the building look like K-Mart may devalue to image of Lowes.

But, you are right. That might be something the local communities could consider when a structure is allowed/built withing a area. Muilti-use buildings maybe be easier to sell, or to intise new business if needed.

Later.

There's something terribly wrong when a ragwood plant and whales have more rights than human beings.

Environmentalism is a mental disorder.

Strictly regulated by qualified biologists? are you kidding me? when was the last time you went hunting douchey? the game commission is headed by political hacks that reflect the will of their masters. Qualified! give me a break. the agents int he field (are they are grossly understaffed for the regions they must patrol) are more qualified than the dipsh!ts in harrisburg. Come out to PA and talk to a seasoned hunter about all the bone-headed moves that the game commission has made over the years. Try not to spew nonsense dude...or at least pick a subject you know something about. lol.

And BTW dipsh!t, not renewable.... sustainable. I'm talking about forests (you know those plant things) and animals (you now those breathing things) and water (you know that liquid stuff) in other words, sustainable resources for recreational purposes not "renewable" resources in terms of energy. and BTW knobhead, most biologists are also environmentalists too, unless of course they're employed by a pollution-solution industry as professional shills. Tool.

Most hunters I know are environmentalists. No biosystem can survive well without predators and humans are predators (check out our teeth). Hunting of deer and other prey animals can be done with respect to the land and the animal themselves. Of course, gun safety and overhunting should be addressed in regulations. I do ask you to eat what you shoot, though.

Habitat for Wildlife is a responsible organization. They never get the press they deserve and they teach responsibility.
