The violence begins

What happened today is unforgivable. But honestly, I'm shocked that it's taken this long for violence around our elected Representatives to break out. Stop. Think. Apply common sense:
  • We're $14 Trillion in debt
  • Underemployment is pushing upwards to 20%
  • 45+ Million Americans are on food stamps
  • 1 in 6 Americans lives in poverty
  • Medical, education, and energy costs are out of control
  • Housing, our nation's greatest source of wealth, falls in value by the second
  • Yet, wealth concentration is hitting historical highs
Our nation is a mess. Our people are hurting. Our elected Representatives have failed us. Today's violence is a first in what will likely be many shocking events in the coming weeks, months and years ahead.

Buckle up, we're in store for a wild ride, brought to us by inept Republican mismanagement of our economy, thanks to George W. Bush and the likes of our worthless Republican Senator Richard Burr.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
