I think this is one side of the argument. But I see a different side. The Bulgarians or Eastern Europeans are heavily funded from big money organizations. They have offered me money to run my property, all upfront(in spring) and they have made the same offer to other neighbors. They are also buying large tracts of land at above market prices. As someone who cares about the livability and character of my neighborhood, this is a problem. I don't want my hood to turn into a third world feeling, drug producing, gun toting(yes they shoot all the time) place. I will admit, I prefer loggers, hippys, and the other unique characters that have lived in these hills and I really don't like the big money people AT ALL. All races included, but the organized crime people in particular. Which happen to be Eastern European at this time.
Of course there are friendly bulgys, that's not the point! It's the bigger picture. I'm sure I could write up a great story about a wonderful plantation owner back in the good old days, but that doesn't mean it's an acceptable way to do things in the bigger picture. We need to police our rural neighborhoods ourselves or the police and f&g are going to be all over us, as they are beginning to do. Time to wake up and stop the p.correct handwringing people. That's my opinion!
