NBC can do whatever it wants

They can release fake transcripts that have the President calling for Jihad against America, and it would be fine. NBC understands that there are no consequences for attacking most elected Democrats from the right.

Until Democrats smack the hell out of the Right instead of the Left... well, here we are!

Good night!

UPDATED WITH APOLOGY: Does anyone else on DU lock the doors to their house and car?


Spider Jerusalem points out that storing iPhone photos on iCloud is something one needs to opt out of. That's just #%^*ed up.

Based on this, I withdraw my original post and apologize.

Original post is below.


Keep money in the bank instead of in piles of cash in the living room?

I keep reading that there's nothing wrong in using cloud Internet services to store photos that we don't want others to see. I'm completely in agreement that victims shouldn't be blamed for crimes against them, but I think there is such a thing as using one's head to reduce risk. If I leave gold bars on my lawn and they get stolen...

Breaking... Ferguson Police Department announces formation of their own bank

In an unrelated development, Eric Holder announced that it might be difficult to staff the ongoing investigation of the Ferguson Police Department, and those kinds of crimes are tough to prove anyway.

Can y'all do me a favor?

Last night, a poster accused me of a felony without supplying evidence. The post itself is not important (I'm not looking to start a flame war), but it was utter BS and it got hidden by a jury, as it should have been.

What surprised me is that it was only hidden by a 4-3 verdict. For an unsubstantiated (and utterly untrue) accusation of a serious crime.

So here's the favor: if you serve on a jury for a post where someone is accused of a crime, or even accused of being prejudiced against others (racist, sexist, etc), can you please think twice about leaving the thing alone unless solid evidence is presented?

Serious charges deserve serious evidence.

I think that Bernie Sanders wants to be on the debate stage with Hillary Clinton,

if Hillary runs. He wants to provide a little context when she (or any other Third Wayer) reminds us of important functional untruths, things like lobbyists representing real people like disabled children or whatever claptrap they spew this time around. Bernie'll remind us that 95% (or whatever) of lobbying cash is for the interests of the Predator Class. That sort of thing.

And if things happen to work out, I'm sure he'd by honored to do the Presidenting.

The funny thing is that if Bernie runs, I expect that Hillary won't. She'll know she'd have an impossible task in fleeing from her history as delivered unvarnished. But if Sanders and Hillary both do run, it'll be great entertainment.

Would it be so crazy?

Would it be so crazy if we had a 24-hour DU cease-fire? A temporary truce?

No whining about the Third Way, misogyny, and the other stuff?

Just good thoughts. Just to see what it would be like.

Let me be crystal clear here with with regard to "Liberals"

If you agree with Rand Paul on any issue, we know you are truly a Paul-bot.

If you disagree with Hillary on any issue, we know you are truly a Paul-bot.

We know these things. They can no longer be denied. "Liberals" are trapped like the rats we know they are. And Clapper knows who they are and where their kids go to school.

The veil is lifted; Wachet auf!

I'll be crystal clear here with DU's "Liberals"

If you agree with Rand Paul on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

If you disagree with Hillary on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

We know these things. You are trapped like the rats we know you are. And Clapper knows who you are and where your kids go to school.

Now that the 2016 Presidential nominees are decided, I hope the Admins will enforce the Nothing Harmful to Democratic Candidates During Election Season rule.
