i totally agree with leestud,for once cuz im sort of a tool,except for the americanization part. w/o americanization we wouldnt have a home and freedom and protection and the growing population of obx would be squeezed even harder for jobs i dont like it but its the truth.
HA! sorry if I called you a tool, my filter is a little worn out. As far as those businesses supplying jobs... yeah, minimum wage non-benefit jobs. Local businesses who cater to the tourists- kudos. Big chain businesses who come down and displace ma and pop to employ a bunch of Russian exchange workers- BS! THEY TOOK OUR JERBS!
