Texas Oil Barons have taken over the Florida Legislature...

I rarely talk politics on this blog but this latest "sack of S%%^^$T" from the Florida legislature really has me riled!

The Florida state senate has introduced a bill, 2622, which will allow for oil and gas drilling from 3 to 10 miles off the crystal white beaches of our emerald coast. Since a similar bill passed the house last year by a fairly large margin, it seems likely that this bill will go through and Charlie Crist will sign it. We could have oil platforms going up as early as July 2010!

The Texas oil barons are not satisfied with trashing their beaches, now they want to destroy ours. Soon we'll go from this...


To this...


And eventually this...



We've got Beach Balls, we've got Bocce Balls, soon we'll have Tar Balls!

What an awful environmental downer! That's nasty. I can't believe that's happening. Er, wait, in the world we live in, it is easy to believe! It's a shame.

On a lighter note, I've nominated you for a Sunshine Blog Award - you can pick it up here ---> http://sheshoes.blogspot.com

God I hope you're wrong...what a travesty against nature......Don't they have enough money in their coffers? It's sickening......Crist doesn't have a prayer of getting into the Senate.... he shouldn't anyway.....

Gaia is angry. We are all in deep doo-doo, go on www.stuartwildeblog.com and check out his post Guaranteed Predictions. Some people think he's a nut case but apparently most if not all his past predictions have come true. If he's right what the Bible calls the End of Days has already started. It's not the end of the world, just the end of our overconsumption and abuse of the planet's resources. Balance was lost a long time ago and it has to come back somehow.
