Hat tip to Shakara Robinson for following closely the Brookfield rock waste dump story - - I'd linked to one of her earlier stories, here, and noted the ironic connections to the iron mine rock waste controversy Up North - - but it didn't take long for the comment section to go depressingly negative.
People have no inhibitions, it seems - - (I took out the identifying ID hotlinks because took you to Facebook, making others' pages visible):
....most of the permanent residents in Ashland and Iron County want the Mine, except those that pray to the fish gods, wind gods, tree gods and have no interest in working for a living where they may have to pay taxes because they finally earn enough to do so. Might have to pay for their phones, food and what ever entitlements they are receiving. There will be substantial improvements to that area, just like at our dead beat quarry. There always is that element. Those in charge have to look for the betterment of all in the area when the project is finished. Now watch our liberal media blow this whole idea out of proportion to the good it will do in the end for all of us.
