Question? Does anyone know how many manure sheds will need to be built to allow so many houses in one location?

12:10 - they should not be allowed to build any - they should be required to have a disposal contract to immediately remove the litter from the premises!

12:31 really? is this what the "Basic Terms" spell out? I really don't know. Is it really written down somewhere?

Wor/Wic and Somerset really need some smart people to get on board. If anyone has noticed a lot of these manure sheds are built right near property lines. What Einsteins approved this? It's no wonder there are no decent jobs on the lower shore. The local governments are full of morons. Manure sheds should be built as far into the person's property as possible who farm it is. It's not like it's rocket science. The "locals" have a lot to say about the "comes heres" but they really need the come heres because at least they have some intelligence. The locals have run the lower shore into a toxic waste land with higher than national average poverty and unemployment rates because they obviously are very stupid people.
