Hope most of you are keeping either dry or warm. I am so happy Fall is finally here. Tonight I get to sleep in pajamas....YEAH!!!
Anyway, onto the news....
While I've been walking around my neighborhood I've noticed signs that say, "Vote NO for Coal!". So, since I'm a person with a brain I decided to research on the issue. Seems like a Coal-Fired Plant is being built in an adjacent county in the next few years. The vote coming around in the next couple weeks is not whether we want the coal plant, but whether we want to have a stake in the opinion of how the plant will be built, emissions, etc.
This basically goes to show you how much people are like sheep in this country. The plant is going to be built, whether or not you vote yes or no, but don't you think you would want a say in how the plant is built? How environmentally safe the plant is? How much this will help us lower our utility bills? People think if you vote no the plant is going to go away...and some people are going to vote without looking at the issue. I know that voting is a right..but sometimes I wonder if people even know what they vote for...maybe if they would have thought back in 2004, maybe we wouldn't be in the mess we're in and maybe the Republican party wouldn't be in such a shambles...but hey...Sheep is as Sheep does.
This is Florida State Homecoming week. There are plenty of activities to attend and I might do a couple of them, but I don't think I am going to the game this year. I have so many other things to do that Homecoming just doesn't seem important this year. Next year....2006...that's a different story.
