How would you feel if industry moved in? 

Credit:  Kokomo Tribune | July 14, 2013 | kokomotribune.com ~~

Imagine investing a majority of savings into property that you elected to call home for several years to come, perhaps everlasting. Picture the enthusiasm surrounding the completion of investment and accomplishment toward new beginnings. Recognize you have finally established a place to call home in an ideal environment.

Now contemplate not even living there for two years and finding potential dreams destroyed by outside forces, absent your control. Welcome to my life.

The wind farm industry, if allowed to continue forward in Tipton County, will have supplanted the last year and a half of my life a waste. An industry piggy-backing off the wallets of the American taxpayer seeks to diminish my American dream.

These industrial machines are not cleansing the electrical grid of fossil fuels. These are political machines and run roughshod over whomever stands in their way. Lives will be destroyed to subtract funding from one political party (shutting down coal plants) to subsidize the other party camouflaged as industrial wind turbines.

Common sense tells me that a landowner would not allow anyone to place an industrial wind turbine on his property solely upon the principle of reducing carbon emissions to save Earth. Eliminate money from the equation and you would be left with scores of landowners wearing white T-shirts and screaming bloody murder about shadow flicker and ice throw.

I didn’t move to industry; industry moved to me, and I want out desperately. I do not seek pity or commiseration; others will be harmed far more than me from these political machines.
