U.S. Senator Bill Nelson made a quick stop in Tallahassee this afternoon 10/20. He stopped by FAMU's campus and talked to students about a variety of issues. Attendees sought the Senator's opinion on the cost of education and budgeting concerns for NASA. They also talked about energy conservation.

On the six month anniversary of the Deep Water Horizon rig explosion, Nelson says America needs to wean itself off the dependence of oil. "We need to be serious about using energy that comes from some place other than oil because we get most of our oil from the Persian Gulf, Nigeria and Venezuela and those are very unstable parts of the world," says, Nelson.

Nelson also commented on the state Senate race. He says he thinks people will gravitate to their home parties and the race will end up being between Kendrick Meek and Marco Rubio.

    Thank you, Senator Nelson for the helpful info from you staff in finding support in resisting bullying and fraud at imperial cove codominiums in Clearwater. We elderly retirees are intimidated and have no input as to how our money is spent and by whom. Whistleblowers, like myself, are threatened with ugly letters and keyed car doors. I feared for my life. Thanks to input from the Democratic Party, I found help from Clearwater's new police chief, Tony Holloway,and from Alex Sink's office. I can not stress enough the importance at this point in time, that the focus for our nation must be on integrity and unity. I do NOT mean all must be of one religion, ethnic group nor ideology. I DO mean that we must get over this ego-pumping absolutism. We still have a long way to go and time is short. The democratic process is virtually obliterated already. Anarchy is not a viable alternative. It is time to take a long, thoughtful look at the plight of the elderly and other disenfranchised groups.
