Our first encounter with an alien civilization will be the EPA trying to fine them millions of dollars.
Unless things have changed since I was interested in this, they never supported a White List.
If you are managing your little kid's access, you want to pick and choose sites/review the before giving them the OK.
He has no access to the system. He has no access to radar logs. He has no access to destroyed rockets, etc. He has some pics and a PowerPoint presentation.
California has lots of oil too.
It remains locked up by the Environmentalists and Bureaucrats. So you have oil, but no oil industry to speak of.
It makes perfect (business) sense to locate it in a state with reasonable wages not drive up by unreasonable taxes and regulations, huge amounts of available land, common sense zoning restrictions, reasonable environmental regulations, and politicians that are actually interested in your business becoming a success .

Really, it doesn't matter when he or any other President did that.
What really matters is that the ignorant fool of an AC believes that he should be able to do that. It should scare the shit out of everyone that even an AC would think that a President should be able to cast aside state laws with a mere wave of his hand or executive order. That's fucking dictator shit right there.
People have thrown the Dictator charge around and it's been consider kookville, because there has always been some arguable legal construct supporting it. But for anyone to seriously suggest that a President has unilateral discretion over the laws of individual states is scary and should get everyone's attention.
You ask these questions as if the answer to any of them would justify the act.
Try going into a bookstore and walking out with a book and not pay for it.
Pretty much explains M.S.'s design team. Start, no Start, Start, No Start. Tiles, no tiles.
It's like daytime TV now.
So you get a PC, a large hard drive, a high speed connection, spend hours searching for movies to down load when you could have just gone to the matinee and paid $7.
How many movies do you have to download to make the economics work?
A chimpanzee named Fred was eaten by a tiger after recklessly clapping his hands and making kissing sounds, attracting the tiger's attention.
Other members of the troop were unanimous in describing Fred as "not the sharpest stick in the jungle".
It's better than nothing.
Any anyone who would make an issue of it has waay too much time on their hands.
