Wind Turbines In My Backyard are Evil ... Solar Panels In Your Backyard Decrease Global Warming

(3 Oct 2015) In 2010, Thomas Melone, CEO of Allco Renewable Energy, petitioned to block Cape Wind, an offshore wind electricity project (130 turbines) in Nantucket Sound federal water. He claimed the project would affect his ocean view and reduce the value of his $15 million beachfront property in Edgartown, Mass. Now, Allco has issued scathing criticisms toward Vermont residents who claim clear-cutting of forest for Allco’s Chelsea Solar electricity project planned for Bennington's Apple Hill area will boost highway noise, destroy the natural wind buffer that protects homes in the area and affect their view. In a brief filed with the Vermont Public Service Board, Allco claimed, "The Chelsea Project will advance the goals of fighting the devastating impacts from climate change. Whatever the unsubstantiated and private concerns ... may be, they pale in comparison to the benefits provided by the Project." (Source: 19 Sept 2015 Watchdog)

Illegal Aliens And Anchor Babies

(30 Aug 2015) Deportation of American citizens isn't an option. Deportation of illegal aliens is the only option. Where their children will live is up to the parents, not me. I respect family autonomy and the authority of parents. I don't think I know better than parents. I believe in freedom. It was their choice to come here illegally. It was their choice to have a child here who became an American citizen. It is now their choice to either keep their family together and take their child with them when they return to their home country or not.
