Say It Ain’t So, “Special” Sam.

Blakeslee's backers can't stop this environmental disaster

Congratulations, State Senator Sam Blakeslee.

With the recent special election victory (Sam’s second), we can expect the tradition of corporate-sponsored legislation benefitting the few at the expense of the many to be secure. We can expect the tradition of minority-rule-by-Republicans in budgeting matters to also be secure. We can expect that there will always be a vote in the State legislature to expand offshore oil drilling. We can expect that there will also be a voice for nuclear power, as long as the land upon which it is sited is geologically stable. And we can be assured of support for vigorous wrist-slapping of energy monopolies for their environmental destruction.
