Proof positive that if "they" want it done, it will be done...no matter the cost or what you as a voter may want. Just in case the whole bailout thing didn't bother to get your attention:
AP: Bloomberg wins
Just a little quote from the article:
During the debate on Thursday, Councilman Charles Barron, who voted against the bill, urged his colleagues to say "no to bullying, no to billions of dollars and yes to the people." And Councilman Tony Avella said: "You should all be voted out of office for voting for this."
Opponents argued that the mayor was going over the heads of voters, who approved term limits twice in the 1990s. Many critics said they did not disagree with Bloomberg's goal of adding a third-term option but faulted the way he went about it.
"Everything has been wrong with this process, and we should not be party to it," said Councilman Bill de Blasio.
A trial run for something in the future perhaps? I know, so paranoid. But really it's not the first time this year that voters have been ignored (see bailout). If it doesn't bother you, it should.
On the home front, the heat is on. Literally. It's darn nippy this evening, so the heat has been set and turned on. Not ready for that yet, but can't have the screamers getting sicker than they are. Oh and a friend from church gave us more apples today. I think, seriously think, that we may just be good for apples for a good long while! lmbo
