    environmentalists, social justice advocates and state and local officials- biggest scam artists history will know, claiming they are concerned with “city” low-income neighborhoods, but don’t care about others. As long as it isn’t in their neighborhood (known as Not in My Backyard), they are fine with it all in the name of ‘eNviROnmEnTaL jUsTice’. What a total and pathetic scam.

    I also laugh that they had to pretend to break ground inside because it was raining. Nice hypocrisy….LOL-frauds
