Last night, DU was really beautiful.
There were 3 major, long threads on the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.

There was no divisiveness, no incivility, no intra-party squabbling. It was all positive energy. We were unified. We were all on the same team.

Everyone was so excited, there was a lot of service and cooperation in posting of stats and ideas.

Last night was so totally awesome.

It gave me hope, and the close vote count reinforced for me the absolute necessity of Democrats sticking together to fight off the vicious republican corporatist assault on our rights.

And I know this probably sounds corny, but I really believe that we can again.

Thanks to everyone that cares.
Peace

21. Proud to have been on last night. Sensible voters in your state came out
of their corner swinging and didn't let up. The battle lurched back and forth and I became nervous at times, but you pushed forward. If there is a recount, win it. I will contribute to help pay lawyers. BTW, have absentee ballots been counted yet, seem they would help sink the republican and make his claims for a recount woefully un-creditable, not that they are at this moment.

5. Together, we are wiser, than the single wisest person alone
Inclusivity is key. We work best when we work together for the common good.

Perhaps the next time you find yourself stuck in your position, move over and checkout the other person position WITHOUT judgement. You can evaluate another idea, position, opinion without putting them down for it.

Holding DU and everyone here in love and light,
BB

18. I noticed a lot of Chicken Littles
Wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with some of these posters. But this is only a discussion board, so I guess it is okay.

20. Generally, I'd like to thank DU for the interest in our fair lil state throughout all of this.
It's "brought me back" here.

Bursting with cheezy pride...

24. Like any other dysfunctional family, we sometimes come together.
Tell you what, though, YOU spend this weekend with my sisters, and you'll be my God.

Series, though, they're not all that bad in person... however their intertubes personalities could use a hugh makeover.
