About Me

I've been a member of DU for over 14 years, but now it is time for me to check out. The glee people on this site took over bashing Gov Northam is too much. EW Jackson, VA's version of a RW troll is being respected and his options considered while the Gov who expanded medicare to 800,000 citizens of my state (including an adult son) is bashed over a 35-year old indiscretion. I see DU as being infected by RW trolls and ratfuckers while the admins are largely absent. See 2016 if you don't believe me. While Northam was being bashed, threads appeared bashing Harris (she took a hard stance against Franken) and Booker (he's corporate) and promoted people who will never be elected in America such as Gabbard and Sanders. Their indiscretions are ignored. For what reason? Their unelectability? The members here that aren't RW trolls or ratfuckers are attempting to achieve some type of purity that will never happen due to mankind's flawed nature. People ar human and prone to mistakes. The rhetorical tools that attack people such as HRC, Franken and Northam will be turned on people like Kamala Harris and Justin Fairfax. It is only a matter of time. I refuse to help the RW and the PURE destroy people and our party. DU was a noble idea, but is a tool on the internet being used to ruin the Democratic Party, suppress the vote, and destroy decent candidates. I won't take part in this crap any longer. To my couple of friends here, so long, it was nice chatting with you. You know how to reach me if you want.

Burglar surprised to discover the lady he's robbing is an armed ax-throwing champ

From Boing Boing

"A retired competitive ax-thrower surprised burglars who'd broken into her home and chased them off. Robyn Irvine of Hemet, CA caught a burglar trying to steal her jewelry while she slept with her cat, and she snatched up her favorite ax and brandished it at him until he ran off. She says she chose not to throw it at him, though she's pretty sure that she could have paralyzed him if she'd chosen. Police later arrested 22-year-old Nicholas Uolla with many of her possessions"

Whole story here:

Ever hear Bob and Ray's "Sore Loser" Routine? Very applicable for Cuccinelli and today's pundits

We will be in recount territory no matter how it ends up.

Virgina, the purplest state, and Terry McAuliffe

VA is a moderate state. The Federal workers balance out the liberals in the urban areas and the natural* republicans in the rural areas and we end up with a true purple state where both sides have about 45% support.

Aside from George Allen, all governor candidates in the last 40 years have been moderates. Had the Republicans picked Bolling, they would have won. Current Governor Bob McDonnell was an extremist who sounded like a reasonable moderate (which made him dangerous, imo), luckily he damaged himself with the trans-vaginal probe and his corruption/bribery scandals. Terry McAuliffe won because he was more moderate than Ken Cuccinelli.

Our jobs as Democrats in this state is to push McAuliffe further to the left. He sounded good in his campaign especially with taking on the NRA and being proud of his F rating with them. Support and reward him for going left, criticize him if he goes right, but all the terrible candidate stuff is nonsense.

Nice job, fellow Virginians.

*A Natural republican is only concerned with taxes, guns, and God.

Link for election results here:


Won't be long now.

If you have friends and family in Virginia, call/text/email them today and make sure they vote.

No excuses, we need a big turn out.

Polls close at 7:00 pm, but if you are in line, they'll let you vote.

From the SBE:

Before the polls close they:

At 6:45 PM announce that polls will close in 15 minutes.

After the polls close they:

At 7:00 PM announce that Polls Are Closed.

starting from the end of the line, make list of names of those in line to assure they will be permitted to vote if line continues after 7:00 PM closing of polls
