May I Humbly Bring Up A Proposal To The Group ??? [View all]

I almost did not post the post below because of the title, I Kinda Liked Mitt, Until I Lost My Job

DU Link: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021545316

And the reason why... is because my initial snark reflex went off and I thought something along the lines of, "Well read a newspaper once in awhile, or, So only when your job is lost to you start looking for help", and a thousand other nano-second knee-jerk reactions.

Operative word there is Jerk.

It took me a couple of minutes... and actually WATCHING the video... and I thought to myself...

Hey asshole... this woman just learned/found out in a few months, what many of us have known for decades! And ... this woman might have just decided to vote Democrat and/or BECOME a Democrat for the first time in her life.

What I'm suggesting is that she got a real life crash course in the political reality of our times. She did not necessarily have the opportunity to study for the test.

So...

Remember... that all newbies are not trolls...

And... whether newbie or not... people who are frightened about the possibility that Romney and the Moneyed Interests might be able to pull this thing out... are not necessarily Concern Trolls...

Hell... I'm worried, but I just keep plowing... FORWARD!

Finally... many new people, people that are young, people that have been hurt, abused, neglected, or any manner of reaseons... INCLUDING leaving the band of Looney-Toones that is now the current GOP... may just be looking for some REAL information.

And finally finally... remember that this place was founded for a whole lot of wounded Democrats and fellow travelers after the SCOTUS gave the Presidency to GWBush.

It should be a safe place for us, and those that want to join us.



And P.S.... WE NEED EVERY ONE OF THEM!
