Burr must go: Our time of contrasts

My head is spinning from the dramatic contrasts that exist all around us right now:

One the one hand:
Wall Street pay to hit a record
UBS won't sue Ex-Bosses
Countrywide CEO settles SEC case

On the other:
Unemployment hits record highs
Home foreclosures hit a record
Food Stamp use hits a record

The people who caused this crises continue to live high on the hog and avoid any form of punishment. Yet those who suffer, they suffer mightily and continue to do so. There's something that is simply wrong with what's going on in our country, very wrong.

And yet we're going to send our US Senator back to Washington DC?

Richard Burr was there when this entire mess unfolded. He's done absolutely NOTHING to either punish those who brought this mess to our doorsteps, or help those who suffer.

I don't get it. Why would you vote for Republican Senator Richard Burr?

It simply doesn't make any sense.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
