    Progressives come to Lillington tonight 7pm and make our voices heard. We are too complacent and the Rethugs are drowning us out. If we want the public option on the table we better be willing to fight for it. I will be there and do my utmost to make sure the scabs do not hijack the meeting.

    Bob Etheridge is totally incompetent and has lost touch with the people of his district. He should actually be representing New York with his tragic voting record. Flush the bum in 2010.
