The Greensboro-Randolph Macro-Micro Site

"The shortest horror story: The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door" - Frederic Brown


According to highly informed sources, the Guilford-Randolph mega site is really a micro site. How so?

Very few acres have actually been purchase. Any “total” acres referred to by proponents is based on “options” to purchase. Therefore, a handful of acres have been acquired and over 1000 acres have options to purchase, but can’t be purchased presently, as no funds exist to initiate a purchase.

Meaning, Greensboro is considering a $22 million water/sewer expenditure to a micro site. Nothing like a nice bridge-to-nowhere as a “shovel ready” project.

If one steps back, considers and ponders the situation for a moment one finds that a non-existent mega site, which is really an existing micro site, the mere existence thereof, supposedly attracts a non-existent auto assembly plant. Brothers Grimm would have been hard pressed to have written a better fairytale.

In order to reach new zeniths in nitwitery one needs to add an additional ingredient to the recipe: politicos through the mechanism of government are seriously considering expending $22 million of taxpayer money (that would be your money) to send a sewer line/water line to a non-existent mega site attracting a non-existent auto assembly plant.

What a brilliant, foolproof plan! These people should really be running our lives.
