Fund raiser to vote Omaha Steve off the DU!!!!

Last edited Tue Jan 29, 2013, 09:14 PM - Edit history (1)



I can't believe DUers don't know me well enough to KNOW I'm for gun control. JFK, RFK, MLK, John Lennon,.....


My post was locked. So let us have some fun. Trolls and cavers will vote against me, but won't donate.

IF you vote, give $5 to the DU or pledge $5 to Gabrielle Giffords Super PAC when it takes online donations. (I couldn't find a link to it yet)

can you help us out rather than simply being offended that anyone would question your motives and just explain what the hell that was about?

9. I got it in an email from a war movie fan group I belong to


I really thought it didn't need commentary from me with my record for gun control. I'm not pissed. Just let down people that have known me for years didn't understand I was just showing an example of what goes around on the net from gun nuts.

In hind sight, I guess I should have said something about it being an just example of what is floating around. And included I don't agree with it. My bad.

This wasn't from someone well known. I'm glad the post was hidden. The thread had no useful purpose at all.

33. NO useful purpose?


Had it not been for a member of a group I belong to sending me this, I wouldn't know how low the gun nuts (not responsible owners) are willing to go. Maybe I live in a bubble. My friends are progressives. I don't get crap like this in email at all. Again I don't agree with it. I didn't think anyone would think I do.

I listen to Rush from time to time or catch up on Media (http://mediamatters.org/) Matters. How else does a person know how to rebut talking points offered by any right wing-nut? That was the purpose of the post. Only to enlighten the unknowing like me.

24. I had the same thing happen.

 

I posted the exact opposite of what I meant, thinking everyone would know what my point was. Instead, people who weren't familiar with me started screaming at me and hid my post before I could let it play out and make my point.

It was an odd feeling.

21. Steve, I know you and I disagree on some things but that was one of the worst locks in DU3 history.

 

Your intent in posting it was quite obvious to me. You got a dense alerter and an equally mentally challenged jury.
