So much for the openess to ideas and opinions Libs are supposed to have
Edited on Mon Sep-21-09 11:56 PM by sjdnb
fact is, if you don't 'toe the line' you get hammered ... just like you'd expect from those on the right.

I always believed it was best to be honest about the strengths and weaknesses of all leaders. Guess not, on this forum.

If you express any disappointment with a Dem leader, you're an outcast.

4. I've worked for every Dem candidate I believed in at the local, state and Fed level since 1972
But, I am feeling like some Dems have sold us out either for selfish personal reasons or selfish economically rewarding reasons. And, I am sick of being had.

5. Blame the ones that let you down, not a whole gender.
If you can't figure that basic rule out then you've been working for nothing all along.

11. Define Trolling
because given the context you've put it in, I have to believe you have no clue as to what 'trolling' is.

3. I have an idea...
...take a break from DU tonight.

Clearly, you're dealing with some personal issues that relate in some way to John Edwards's adultery, and they're causing you to lash out at all of us.

8. I'm not lashing out at you ...
I'm lashing out at ALL among the Dems who have disappointed us either because they had personal crap going on or sold us out to donors that resulted in our getting screwed. Fact is, moral weakness, be it of body, spirit, or economics, is all the same. When we are failed by our leaders, for whatever reason, it weakens us all.

9. But why have you started FOUR threads about something that happened a YEAR ago?
And why have they become increasingly angry at men in general? Not particular male politicians, but at the whole damn gender?

A lot of men use this site, ya know--and quite a few of us don't cheat.

7. So if everyone agreed with you
that would be so different than the uniform right. Really no one cares that you just realized adults have sex. Welcome to adulthood.

10. I'm speaking for myself here
I am god damned fucking sick of watching the republicans slam the crap out of Democrats - the media gives them all the time they want to bash the crap out of our side. My feeling is people are so burnt out from negativity they can't stand it here. So, when I come here I want a bit of a break from it.

That being said - discussion of what is not going right NEEDS to be discussed and not denied. However, any negativity needs to be based on reality and not crap someone sees at a right wing site that gets blown out of proportion.

If there weren't so many trolls here the backlash wouldn't be so great when legit criticism is given.
