How the racists of the South have ruled this nation from the very beginning.

Where was Kay Hagan and her staff at the SEC Saturday to thank Democrats for supporting her in her campaign? Well, no where to be seen or heard. Come on Senator Hagan, you could have spared two hours for a ride to Pittsboro to simply get on the podium and tell your supporters thanks. You might even have sent a recording or a letter - but, no the sound of one hand clapping. Think you might need the "little people", the voters again? Now is the time to build bridges.

Like not killing unemployment insurance, like expanding Medicaid.
