Friday Ramblings with Robert
New Coal Plant Will Benefit Kemper County
Mississippi Power has decided to move ahead with the construction of their new coal fired plant in Kemper County after the Public Service Commission eased some restrictions this week. The project was dead in the water last month after the PSC capped how much of the cost could be passed on to customers. This project will be a huge benefit as it will provide 260 full time jobs once completed and will also include 1000 jobs while being constructed. In a time when job creation is so scarce it is good to see that the two sides in this matter were able to come together and work something out that will benefit everyone in the long run.
Oil Spill: Apparently Not Talked About Enough
We got an email this week saying that we are ignoring the catastrophe that is the oil spill down in the Gulf. I did address it 3 weeks ago and I am not sure how much can be really added to the story that has not been talked about already. The whole situation has been a disaster on all ends and nobody comes out looking good in the process. It will take a good amount of time to recover from it, but ultimately nature will take its course and revive itself. However, if you are really interested in up to the second updates on the spill may I present you with Spill Cam. You can sit around and watch that all day if you want to satisfy your oil spill coverage.
The Ultimate Goal in MS-01 & MS-04
As the primary campaigning season comes to a close, in just a few short days, as voters head to the polls it is important to remember what the ultimate goal is. We have seen plenty of back and forth in the two key GOP primary races in MS-01 and MS-04 and hopefully when the dust settles everyone will still be on the same page. There will be some who are bitter that their candidate did not win, but that bitterness should not lead to a negative impact in the general election for the candidate that did prevail. I know it will be tough to support someone who you rallied against for many months, but it is something that must be done in order to reach that ultimate goal. The ultimate goal being to run the incumbent out of office by supporting the candidate that best aligns with conservative ideals, even though it may be a tough pill to swallow. Here’s to an exciting primary race on Tuesday and may the best candidate win and when they do win let’s all get behind that person to change the direction of our country.
