said by tmc8080:Leaving NC was made easier for me by the blankets of pro-business legislation and government whoring to desires of the chamber of commerce and incumbents-of-any-brand. Really annoyed me. I like alot of things about the state but that wasn't one of them. Often surprised me the distance legislators and courts would walk to kiss business ass even when proposals were clearly detrimental to quality of life and good alternatives were on the table. Extreme short sighted profit taking mentality seems to pervade the culture.
North Carolina in particular recently enacted some of the toughest telecom anti-competitive laws in the nation
