NaBloPoMo 7: I’m Voting

 

I’m voting bright and early tomorrow morning.  I almost voted absentee but with lines waiting nearly two hours all week in our small state, I decided to take my chances before work.

NaBloPoMo 5: Skipped a Day

Yesterday I did nothing but got up, went to work, then went to dinner with my sisters.  One sister opted out of her share of the bottle of wine leaving it to and even split between me the other sister.  I was in no shape to blog before midnight.  I even tried.  I had my blog open created a very short post.  Decided it didn’t make sense. Closed it and went to bed.  This is a placard just so I can keep my entires matched with the date of the month, knowing that I skipped a day.

Tonight, I’m exercising my independence by studying ballot issues.  Voting local is where your vote counts.

NaBloPoMo 3: Just Because You Can; Doesn’t Mean You Should.

A Federal Judge has ruled that work on the four-state pipeline can go forward, but Tuesday President Obama said that the U.S Army Corps of Engineers is examining possible alternative routes for the Dakota Access Pipeline.   (full npr article here)

I really hope this happens.  This just doesn’t affect lake Oahe and the Missouri River they are also going under the Mississippi between Iowa and Illinois.

I’d rather not see the pipeline go in underneath all that farmland.  But, to find an alternative route especially after a Federal Judge gave the go ahead, I would love to see that expression of independence thought demonstrated.

Just because you can doesn’t always make it right.  I hope the powers that be make a stand for independence.
