Kay Hagan is a Democrat?

I'm appalled with our 'D' senator in 2 distinctly dismal ways this afternoon.

First, Hagan votes to legalize the military to snatch and indefinitely detain anyone accused of being a scary 'terrorist.'  Specifically, no lawyer will be allowed for anyone so accused.  Also, this authorizes military actions within the US (um, posse comitatus? anyone?)  This includes US citizens like me and you, dear reader.  (Note this bill will extend to the military this unconstitutional priviledge currently only enjoyed by the president.)

Tell Flyleaf Books to Cancel Pro-Fracking Event on Dec 7th: Protect Our Water!

Urgent Action Needed! Pro Fracking PR Hack Descends Upon Chapel Hill: Tell Flyleaf Books to Cancel Event Immediately! (Please Forward Widely)

As advertised by UNC’s Humanities in Action program, they plan to bring the president of an oil and gas company that makes money off of hydraulic fracturing to speak in support of this dangerous natural gas extraction practice at a local independent bookstore called Flyleaf Books. There will be no one present to tell the other side of the story: that fracking has caused major disasters all over the country from well explosions, to methane leached in to water aquifers, poisoned families, carcinogens and hundreds of toxins leached into our rivers. The event is scheduled for December 7th from 3:30-5 p.m. and tickets cost $20.

50th Anniversary Commemoration of Vickers v Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools

From the Town of Carrboro:

50th Anniversary Commemoration of Vickers v Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools

This landmark civil rights case was rendered from the United States Federal Court in August of 1961. The case changed the course of school integration in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro District and served as a model for antidiscrimination in schools within North Carolina and across the Southeastern United States.

The program will salute the courage exhibited by Carrboro native Stanley Vickers, his parents, and a multi-racial community support system that took a bold stand for equity and justice a half-century ago.
