    That Thompson Falls plant was a “bait and switch” all the way, and despite an outcry from a lot of residents, the County Commissioners supported it.

    Nobody is alarmed at this type of behavior by our “representatives”? I don’t remember the specific story that the line came from, but I know it dealt with the holocaust…….”until they came for me.” Our gov’t is getting scarier and scarier. Funny how 1984 is not required reading anymore.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
