Ted Turner owns a good chunk of a couple SD counties out here.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

I know for a FACT that he owns land in Georgia, but the map doesn’t show it.

I wonder how the land holdings will fare with the pending divorce? One can also see which states have more restrictive laws and rules regarding who can buy farmland especially. We may not prefer that a few men or firms can own millions of acres but then we applaud capitalism so we live with it and complain and wish it would not happen.

I think I heard Ted say he wanted to be able to ride a horse from coast to coast and never leave his own land. That was years ago. Ted founded CNN, the mouthpiece of the left. They eat their own.

I am more worried about foreign investors buying land and he slaughterhouses.

You can buy lots of whatever when you work hard, build a business and make lots of money.

I remember when that was a good thing. In my opinion it still is.
