by Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC)

In today’s Charlottte Observer, NC Senator Richard Burr, one of the most conservative members of the U.S. Senate had the following to say about the USPS:

While the future of the Postal Service is uncertain, what we do know is that comprehensive reform will be needed to address its many issues… Unfortunately, the situation facing the Postal Service is much more grave than that, and it might require a restructuring of the entire agency in order to save it from insolvency.

Occupying Duke Energy

March 31, 2012:

Today a number of groups concerned with the way Duke Energy continues to pollute our planet, protested at ALEC member Duke Energy’s Offices at 550 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC  28202 (in case you feel compelled to send Jim Rogers a written message).  It was truly inspiring to be with a group of distinct organizations working together toward a common goal.

This post will try to share today’s events with you.  As the speeches given by many today are not on the web, we will print each of them in subsequent posts.

The Event was co-Sponsored by:
350.org
, Occupy Charlotte,
Action NC, Canary Coalition,
Clean Air Carolina, DemocracyNC,
Green Party-Charlotte Chapter,
Greenpeace USA,
NAACP-Charlotte Chapter,
NC WARN, SAFE Carolinas, & More!
