Default Why O why & Why O why???

Why do people support the Developer / TV Concept,



and



Why do other people appear to want to negative and have a dislike for TV/The Developer???


So many times, threads get off of the OP's topic and turn into a debate on The Developers, The Villages' concept, personal attacks against the Developers and the personal support of the Developers.


The Moderators will give us some room here, but let's see if we can flush some of the thoughts / logic out prior to this thread being locked down.




Me????.................I have a lot of respect for the business people who risk their financial well being to develop/create something. ie: The Wright Brothers; Bill Gates; Ben Franklin; John Baird; Delbert Webb: Harley Davidson; as examples. Some got very rich, some did not. To me, that's the American Way.

IMHO

Why do people support the Developer / TV Concept? - because it supplies a nice, easy life-style

Why do other people appear to want to be negative and have a dislike for TV/The Developer? - jealousy

We looked at many places to retire. I never thought I would leave San Diego County, but it got so crowded and gang troubles made the decision easier. I am an avid golfer, but my wife is not. So many places we looked at were centered around a golf course(s) and a clubhouse. Great for me, not for her. On a trip to visit my son in Sarasota, we decided to look here and found a community that certainly filled my golfing expectations but most importantly provided the abundance of activities to fulfill those of my wife.

We’ve been here 13 years and appreciate what the
Morse family has built as they have built a community that has opportunities for many interests. Further, they live here as well and show no intent to leave. Yes, they remain in control either directly or through the central CDDs, but their record is largely positive.

So, I do appreciate the developer and what they’ve created for us to purchase a home and a lifestyle. I do also support those who watch out for the residents as this community grows.

Why do some appear negative? One thought is that the place seems like a resort to some instead of a community. In a resort, you tend to feel the owner should provide for your expectations, and I think some residents feel the developer is not doing that for them.

Negative posters do not like successful &/or rich people......probably posters' self inadequacies.

Maybe the complainers don't have the guts to put their own money on the line when starting a business.
I know a few business owners and most don't turn a real profit for quite some time after starting out.

People are people.
Some of the ones you mention. The Wright Brothers-most know or think they know that they were bicycle mechanics.
At the time, even today building a bicycle required engineering, machining as well as manufacturing and sales. One of the key things the Wright Brothers did was to make their engine out of aluminum rather than cast iron, steel etc. At the time aluminum was both rare and expensive. Perhaps same as today, after their first flight the Wright Brothers attempted to sell to the military.

Ben Franklin was apprenticed to his brother-A CODE OF HONOR.
Ben Franklin learned quickly as he was very bright but he broke his father's contract of honor and quit the terms of his apprenticeship. It is interesting that he has a reputation as a ladies man. HUM it was not due to his looks.

As far as the developer. My opinion as I read these threads, few comprehend what it takes to run this place. People being people will/do complain. It is clearly RARE that people who complain have a solution to the problem. I for one regularly wonder what this place would be like if the INMATES were running it.
