The Tallahassee Democrat has completed its series on the proposed biomass plant to be built in Tallahassee complete with the requisite quotes of some of the prominent players. They didn’t ask me for my opinion but I am going to give it to you anyway. BG&E can take their biomass plant and shove it up Glenn Farri’s ass!
I have to admit that I have not been following the issue closely until now. The only thing that stands out is that $40 million fiasco in Vermont and whether or not Farris had anything to do with that. But what I do know is that biomass plants produce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. And to put it in a heavily populated area despite its ideal location makes as about as much sense as me kissing George W. Bush’s ass!
Who cares that FSU wants to save on electricity? I want my utility bill cut too, but you don’t hear me threatening to set up a windmill. If they cut their football recruiting in half they’d save some damn money. And there’s that little thing called a CONFLICT OF INTEREST involving FSU President’s wife being in charge of the project and having an ownership stake in the company. I also don’t like T.K. bitching about how we do business here in Tallahassee. You are one fucking demerit away from being sent back to TCC.
Then there is that funny little thing about property taxes. What a sweetheart deal that is. The state owned land doesn’t have to pay taxes because that would kind of be like the state paying its self. FSU is operating like they were the fucking Sopranos, extorting money from the city to remain a paying customer. I say build your own power plant like you were going too. You don’t get shit for free in this country unless you are a Wall Street banker.
Why not turn the property into a solar power site? We get plenty of sunshine in this state. I think that is on the tag on my car. I come from a long line of people that believe if you tell me that it is good for me then it is probably not. To disregard the wishes of the citizens who live in the area where you want to put your oven doesn’t bode well for democracy. It reeks with the smell of fascism!
