According to our local lefty blogger, from the land of purpleness, conservative extremists are holding back the local economy by not engaging the rest of the Golden State.
Our community has often benefited from the “trickle down” — pardon me — from Coastal California. So far, we are lagging — significantly.
What if our community embraced the rest of our Golden State rather than let a small group of vocal extremists fight it? After all, it’s a much better lifestyle up here.
I am been puzzling over his purpleness’s point of view. Just what are free market conservatives doing to inhibit the local economy? Your thoughts are most welcome.
On the other hand, it was the left leaning environmentalist Board of Supervisors in the 1990s that rewrote the General Plan and amended Zoning Regulations to make it impossible for big box stores, or name brand merchandise stores, to come and enhance our local economy. As a result we are seeing these stores open in North Auburn, just across the border from Nevada County. If you think the $200 million a year lost tax revenue was a big sucking sound, wait until those big box stores open in 2014, and watch the tax revenue decline in Nevada County.
As I recall, it was the conservatives that warned in the 1990s that this could happen. They knew that Nevada County citizens would follow their wallets to the lowest cost merchandise and those low cost providers are moving right next door. Amazing, that is just amazing, to quote Huell Houser. No, it not it is just human behavior. Something Nevada County’s lefty/progressives just do not understand.
