"This doesn't make me mad. This doesn't piss me off. This infuriates me!" (Missouri)

King City, Missouri
Here awhile back my doctor told me, “If you don’t get yourself and your family out from under those windmills, they will destroy your health and eventually kill you.”
Between listening to these noisy, invasive monsters, her [my doctor’s] advice, the lack of sleep, waking up with headaches, etc., we could take it no longer.
As bad as I hated to do it, we bought a modest house in town last Friday. We close on November 4th and will be moving as soon as possible after that. Our quiet country way of life will be over, destroyed by the thoughtless [expletive deleted] called the Wind Capital Group.
Our daughter will not grow up in the country, like we had dreamed. We will not build a new home, like we had dreamed, on the farm we worked so very hard to get paid off over the past 15 years. I will not be able to be next to my horses, like we have been. If one gets out, if one gets sick, if one has trouble foaling, if one gets cast in it’s stall, and numerous other situations that can and will occur—my horses will be on their own until morning. This could and will cost us thousands of dollars. It will take away the immediate access to the horse business for our daughter. It will become more like a job to me than a way of life.
It is impossible to put a figure on what the thoughtless [expletive deleted] at Wind Capital Group have cost, and continue to cost, myself and my family.
This doesn’t make me mad.
This doesn’t piss me off.
This infuriates me!
It’s all I can do to keep from going postal. If a foreign country were to do something like this to innocent American families, it would not be tolerated. It would be stopped by whatever means necessary.
Instead, our flaming idiot of a president gives the wind industry 8 billion dollars. The sad part is that the wind monsters are no more than giant white elephants. They cost too much, and run too little to ever “save the world.” During the time they don’t turn, which is most of the time, the red lights on top of each one, plus the numerous heaters in each one to keep the hundreds of gallons of oil from freezing, still run, taking electricity away from other sources. Trying to save the world using wind monsters is like trying to gain weight eating only celery. You actually lose weight eating celery, just like the energy, fuel, cost and carbons released into the air, compared to the very low output they create, does more harm than good. All this at the taxpayers’ expense.
This sign will be nailed to our front deck next to the road, as soon as we’re moved out. I might even put it in the newspaper.
“This precious home abandoned due to the overwhelming noise and proven health issues caused by Giant Wind Turbines! Thanks to the Wind Capital Group!”
Just last night, the noise was unbearable. A window air conditioner was running less than 20′ from our bed. A ceiling fan was running directly overhead. We had the TV turned on and tuned into a muzac channel. We did everything we could think of to mask the invasive noise. However the [expletive deleted] things still kept us awake. Even my pillow vibrated in time with the turning blades.
To say this is bullshit is a vast understatement. This is, and will continue to be, a living nightmare.
