Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

New poster

Hi all. I got a mail telling me after 10 posts I have to come here with an intro.

I live in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. I am early 50's. First one in my family to go get any college even though I did not finish because of money.

Have always voted but not always a well informed one. The election of Bush in 2000 bothered me a lot on how it happened and I have not been happy with government since. I don't think they even care about lying to us in pretend caring for the regular (not rich) people.

The more the muckymucks whine about evil liberals the more I know the are afraid they will be forced to stop stealing our future.

Not many people around me bother much with politics so a lady at work mentioned I might like this.

3. thank you

reading here for the last few weeks has been an eye opener. You folks that have been here a long time have been so welcoming. It has not been easy to find a board where people are so decent.

Thanks for the welcome.

8. Welcome

I started paying attention after 2000 also and in 50's.

I joined here I think around 2003, saw a link for it on Michael Moore's site.

It can get heated here, don't let it bother you, there are a lot of us that don't post as much and are serious about what we believe, its not a game.

10. Welcome to DU, KentuckyWoman!



I lived in Western Kentucky (Ft. Knox) for a total of about five years. I liked it there. I had the opportunity to visit the hills of Eastern Kentucky once, and marveled at the landscape. The people were nice.

Glad to have you here...

13. You didn't have to, but we're awfully glad you did!

Welcome to DU! I never paid a lot of attention to politics, either, but always voted, mostly for Democrats. It was 9/11 that woke me up, scared me witless and that's when I started researching and reading, eventually found DU and it's been my home online for more than 10 years now. I've learned more here than I can possibly describe and also got active, worked on my (Democratic) congressman's campaigns.

I'm in NY, but in a pretty red district, so I can sympathize. Most of my friends are liberals, though, a pleasant surprise. Now that I'm informed, I'm horrified by a lot, but I'd rather know and not be blindsided. And I agree that most voters aren't informed, let alone most people. I try and spread the word whenever I can, LOL. Hope you've found a home here, too...

14. New too.

 

I've just signed up too. I was a member years ago but that was a different version and different mental capacity of a "middle aged person". It's good to be back!

23. Hi, KentuckyWoman

I was drawn to your username; I am married to a Tennessee woman. I like to hear from your part of the country.

I know this reply is catching you two months late, but I hope you see it and I hope you're enjoying DU.
