I’m in. NJ and I’m nice. @ABX

Yes, but you want to leave.

I keep getting offers to transfer to New Jersey. I try not to laugh at them.
I know. I got an offer to write ADA code for the M1 tank. Great job. But the job was in Detroit. Thanks, but no thanks.
No desire to live in Michigan, and especially in Detroit.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

But not for a while. Maybe 10 years. And with the exception of when my company sent me on various assignments and vacations I’ve been in NJ my entire life.

The UP is awesome I could be a Yooper. In fact it is probably the only place East of the Mississippi and north of the Mason Dixon line where I would fit.

You should ask for the use of one of those tanks as a company vehicle for not only for the commute, but other business and pleasure.

I would need one if I lived in Detroit, just to keep from being mugged and carjacked. That's why I didn't go. Too dangerous and way too cold for me. It was good to know that my decline allowed some other qualified person to take the job. I like that. Had other offers at the time so it was no big deal to me. Honestly, I've worked on some weird systems in my career. Stuff I'm not allowed to talk about.

I am happy where I am at. I've seen enough of the world to know the difference. There is one thing I have wanted to see/visit. The pyramids/temples down South.

Which ones? There are pyramids literally all over the world, except in America. If you mean Egypt, you can do it but it is dangerous. Tourism has nosedived since Obama installed his terrorist Muslim Brotherhood government there. That government was overthrown, but the country is still in disarray and a dangerous place to be. Going to South Egypt, or Luxor, without armed bodyguards would be incredibly dangerous. The farther you go away from Alexandria and Cairo the more it becomes more like a no-man's-land.

Cairo is the safest place to be in Egypt, and even that is a toss-up these days. The government uses troops to keep Cairo safe because they want tourist revenue. Once you leave the Capitol city, you will be more or less on your own unless the tour company has hired police or some armed escort.

The ones in Mexico/Central America. I lived in Egypt for a year. I've been on top of the Great Pyramid. That was 1982. There were guards at night. For a few dollars, they would look the other way. Pretty sure they have stopped the practice. While still in Egypt we heard a Marine (stationed at the Embassy) had fallen off from it and died.  Egypt was "safe" back then. We went over to visit some friends in an apartment complex for ex-pats. it wasn't a gated place. There were armed military guards because there were several Israeli families there. The guards had leaned their weapons against the nearest tree and were half a block away getting a soda from a street vendor.

Oh heck yeah. I have the best mountains anywhere. That ain't the point. If I HAD to be east of the Mississippi and north of the South...

Shouldn't this issue be addressed in the permitting process?

That was how the city I used to live in did it.  They did not tax them extra.  They would not issue the permit until a retention "pond" is built that will hold two hours of rain from all the covered in concrete.

Same here.  Us back woods hicks learned a long time ago to prevent flooding you need so much area set aside for "Green space".... Retention ponds and housing density limits.   Same for commercial development.  But I guess those yankee's know what is best... tax everything and everyone.

Could it be about the revenue?  Just thinking out loud here, @The Ghost.

Upnort, it is always about the Benjamins. How many and how often you can stick it to the citizenry.

Down here it's how to fight off the damn yankee infestation when they bring their liberal big city tax and speed ideas with them and get on Zoning Boards and commisions.  Not to mention when they enroll their rugrats in our schools and get elected to the school board.

It illustrates the leftist mindset.  They claim to want to do wonderful things for "other people" but they always seem to end up with bags of loot.  One  would almost think they are only in it for the money.
