I only wish

I only wish that I was living in North Carolina now. The Occupy movement should be in full force in front of McCrory's offices and home over the Duke Energy scandal. Since he worked for Duke for 28 years and now has given them favoritism status, that alone should be enough for a full investigation. Any and all goings on between McCrory and Duke Energy should be investigated and brought to light. If the news media won't do it, Occupy should. I believe in the movement and am thrilled that it hasn't died.

People need free time, accessible communication and education to organize, and often in 'company towns' or increasingly 'company states', people are too haggard, being unemployed and wage slaves to be able to devote that time. And that is exactly the way Duke energy wants it. No differnt from the way that Carnegie's or the Rockefeller's ran things 100 years ago.

Solidarity comrade.

I just wish that the Dems had the gall to do some of the things to the Rs that are being and have been done to them. Why not rub it in a little. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. Of course, no one is guilty until proven so, but I do love the squirming that goes along with these kids of events. Notice now that the Volkswagen plant is on the verge of being unionized. Go for it. I love it and hope that things start going "our" way for a change. Thanks for your response.
