Latest “liberal” initiative for “freedom”

A county in Washington, at the behest of the environmentalists, may enact the most restrictive land use ordinance in the country.  They say it’s for the larger community.


Here’s an easy way to judge whether this is really in the interest of the larger community:  do land prices go up or down?  If down, then the market has voted against it.


But then, that actually may be a point in favor of it to these people.  If the market’s against it, it must be a good thing.  If it destroys wealth, they’re in favor of it. 


And if this ordinance makes land prices go up, then black is white, the sky is bright green and liberals in America today really do stand for freedom.
