You can breathe the polluted air, drink the tainted water, eat the mercury-laden fish, but don't open your yap and complain about it:
Titan America LLC and Carolinas Cement Co. LLC have sued two New Hanover County residents charging they made defamatory and untrue statements about Titan's push to obtain permits to build a cement plant in Castle Hayne.
The slander complaint, filed Feb. 25 in U.S. District Court, seeks more than $75,000 in damages. On Feb. 28, the case was selected for mediation.
I expect to see the liberty-lovin', Tea Party, don't-tread-on-me-flag-wavin' folks up in arms about this. Oh, that's right, they get their marching orders from AFP and FreedomWorks. Nevermind.
