Hello fellow socialists/communists/anarchists -

my name is TBF and leftists are welcome here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1024

We support our president given reality and like to discuss how the world could be better.


For all new-comers my advice would be to find a few small groups you like to start out with. It is a great way to meet some folks and a little less intimidating than some of the big forums. That said, you'll find the latest news in the breaking news thread (and likely discussion about it in General Discussion).

I hope you like it here


ETA: Since everyone else is posting pics ... I am married with 4 kids (2 human, 2 furry):

4. Hi there & welcome -

my husband has dual citizenship here & UK (his mum was born in Slough and moved here after WWII).

I've only visited your country once but adored it - we visited London, Bath, Stoke on Trent (the Wedgwood factory), and Stratford upon Avon. And a lot of castles (with a lot of stairs!).

I hope you enjoy DU!

6. MIRT has been a lot of fun

and very interesting. I'd recommend it to anyone. Personally I have very much enjoyed working with you too. I will have to visit LGBT group this summer from time to time

11. That would be awesome! I've got a good friend who gets season tickets to the Texans every

year and sells some of the games. I'll look into it.

There are so many Houston area DUers that I think it would be awesome to have a cookout or something sometime.

12. I had no idea there were cool people here -

until I met some on DU! I live in the suburbs where the soccer moms pack heat (not kidding) but that would be fantastic to have a meet-up!

9. Hi TBF!

You are a mensch and a great DUer. I second the suggestion on Groups. GD can seem like Thunderdome to a newb. I lurked for about two years before actually getting the nerve to post.

10. Thanks Starry!

Another on-line friend that I need to meet in person one day - leftist females are few and far between.

And I definitely agree about the GD forum - I started posting in early 2008 during the Primary. Those were scary times

14. Thanks - I've always been an animal lover :)

One of these days I have to buy a scanner and show old pictures of my pony from years ago.

And I wanted to be sure other socialist types could find our little corner!
