Great article.

Let’s face it, successful politics is about appearances and egos. Politicians are terrible businessmen. For every job they “create”, I expect at least 4 real jobs are lost (real jobs = jobs not dependent upon forced taxpayer contributions). You can’t expect that putting people into civil service jobs or collecting taxes from successful businesses in order to hand it out to organizations that can’t get a business loan will help the economy. Those people that point to jobs “created” assume that the cost was negligible, when in fact the local economy has suffered greatly and as a direct result of these “free money” schemes.

How interesting this article is. It shows the inflated ego of the govt employee. somehow the govt thinks as do many liberal posters here that the govt invented all things. Not true. i had to look up selling hive. i still am not sure as to what they were actually selling.The area continues to have a population and customer drain. mention high taxes and the liberals scoff at this.mention fracking and they get hysterical. we have in this article absolute proof of the dimwitted govt and how they made everyone dependent on them. But in that process, they shorted all the longtime business people who paid their dues. the govt is too big and must be made smaller.all these low tax zones are just scams. our govt is great at scams.lower taxes for all. let everyone benefit.
