DU Appreciation Thread

I know we all feel this way, but sometimes it is better to come out and say it. Thank goodness for DU. This site is a guiding light, an inspiration, a means for all of us to keep our sanity. Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!

I used to blog on my local right wing web site in central Pa. There were about 4 or 5 of us who fought for progressives, who fought for the truth. I got banned from the site a year ago, not for violating any rules but because I told the site owner that Trump was a Putin puppet. It feels so nice to be able to freely say here and now that Trump is a Putin puppet with no fear of being banned.

I an not a perfect poster here, I f*ck up from time to time, but when I realize I screw up I apologize.

Let's debate vigorously but in the end the only way we lose in 2020 is if we fail to show up to vote.

DU Rocks!

It's good to crawl out from under that garbage and find a place with people who actually care!

12. Was a refuge for clarity during hype for Iraq War

Funny how that works, everyone here knew there were no WMD, everyone here knew that god awful war was going to be one of the worst foreign policy mistakes in the history of this country if not the worst. But the corporate media pushed and pushed and pushed the agenda of that evil administration.

Peace

15. I'm a dude,

got the name Watoos which is short for Watusi. I played bass guitar back in the 60's, was a long hair (medium hair). Nothing better than playing in a band, well almost nothing better.

16. Four cheers for DU! I would lose my mind without it.

I realized just how much I depend on DU for support when it was taken down by hackers the night of the election in 2016. I didn't have anywhere to turn to commiserate.

DU is a treasure.

I get so much information, cartoons and posts that I email to all my friends. They think I'm doing a lot of work looking for all of this great stuff, but I don't. I just come here and read and it's all here. Yes, thanks.

27. I am grateful for DU, it's been my daily repose for a while.

I'm a relative new-comer (2017) but feel like I've been here a long time. Great place to vent and keep up with current Democratic Party thinking and trends, and to get a snapshot of news that's important to us.

I'm also grateful for the vast store of knowledge that's frequently shared here and I think we have experts on most every topic.

My other places of refuge are a few European news sites which don't stay enamored with tRump bullshit....

Many DU posters are so informed and informative. It's a great forum for Democrats.

37. DU has been a life raft in a roiling sea of right-wing insanity.

Like many others here, it has pulled me through some dark times. And right now, the times are completely off the rails.

Thank you, DU, and to all DUers who rage against the darkness, my heart is full of love for you.
