You're dodging around here and overlooking my point with your (newly discovered) "it depends" POV.
However, SOC and others have created an environment where being associated with being for this issue is considered not a matter of merely opinion on the parties involved, but one where it is considered highly offensive to be associated with the other side.
Hmmm, can you point me to something where SOC, specifically, has done what you claim above?
Can you please point out where my contributions have been almost all conjecture?
Here are some facts for you:
- The proposal includes selling public land to a private concern for development.
- The proposal would bifurcate public lands
- The proposed tram would affect the viewshed.
- The proposal would impact the current use of the land by the public.
- The forest service opposes the proposal
- The Utah Ski and Snowboard Association opposes it
- Salt Lake City water officials, conservation groups and the mayors of Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County have raised objections to the proposal.
That would be more than one fact. For the record, all of those make the proposal seem like a negative thing to me. But I'm open to other-than-conjecture discussion.
I hope you're learning something from all this.
