As constituents of the 4th District we have a responsibility to hold our representative to the House of Representatives, Congressman David Price, accountable for his lopsided, and unconscionable support and sanctioning of the state of Israel's current massacre of Gazans in our name. His 'thoughtful comments' are not sufficient to cover for his unthoughtful action as expressed with his vote in favor of HR 34 last Friday. I inv
APOLOGIES, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO A CONFLICT OF SCHEDULING BY THE STATION AT SOUTHERN RAIL
Today the President announced loans for bailing out the automotive industry. While it is important to save jobs, fuel efficiency improvements and safeguards for consumers and the environment
have not been a part of any of the failed legislation considered by
Congress up until now, and much less by the administration in today's
announcement. With this bail-out our government is demonstrating once again, as with the financial bail-out,
a catastrophic shortsightedness. We are missing a great opportunity
for retrofitting our highly carbon intensive infrastructure. We could
be dealing with global warming and peak oil while at the same time
priming the real economy.
CANCELLED: the Carrborogreenspace (The WITT in exile) will be
presenting 'Who Killed the Electric Car" at the Station at Southern
Rail (201-c East Main Street), Carrboro. The auto-industry has
actively continued to ignore all the signs that would have lead to a
saner predicament then the one that they find themselves in today.
This movie demonstrates the complicity that we are inheriting as our
govenment throws money away to an industry that could be made to do
better.... come out, inform yourself, and hold your Representative accountable to the highest standards. Discussion to follow after the movie.
The Station at The Southern Rail, 2201-c East Main St., Carrboro
This week after a lot of theatre by Democrats in Congress appearing to be tough on the big three, the automotive industry is likely to be bailed out. Congress rejected the initial proposal by the automakers and asked them to come back with a better proposal and not in Leer jets. They came back with their new proposals by car.
Received the following from Rep. Price on the airport. Others may have received essentially the same communication, so apologies if this has already appeared elsewhere.
Noted, #1: the overt designation (twice) of the proposed airport as a "general aviation airport" - not a "University airport."
In a recent letter to constituents, Representative David Price described opposition candidate BJ Lawson's position on various issues. It would be informative to get BJ Lawson's point by point response to each issue as described by Representative David Price. Similarly, it would be informative to get Representative David Price's response to Price according to Lawson on the issues. I don't have the time to compile or find this one, if someone does please post it in the same format as this post but as a separate post. Lets hope to get their responses ...
Why we support B.J. Lawson
This is a community of Democrats in and
around the 4th District of North Carolina, and indeed from around the
entire state and the entire country, who support the campaign of
William "B.J." Lawson for House of Representatives. You may ask why we
support B.J. when there is an 11-term and well-known Democratic
incumbent, David Price, currently representing the 4th District. Well,

And I can't say I disagree with them much. (But I do have some quibbles.
