Perry Sues Wrong Virginia in Attempt to Get On Ballot

Bo has proven to be a bad choice for Presidental Dog

Ever since Bo was announced as the pick for first dog, I thought of it as Obama's first mistake. Now many mistakes have followed that bad choice on the part of President Barack Obama, but at least this one can be corrected. There has been some talk of Bo being dumped as the first dog and a new puppy chosen in his place. Why not?

Bo has proven to be a rather ineffective and weak presence as the vice president. We went from FDR's dog, Fala showing that a first dog can play an important part in a partnership with the president and have a good deal of power, to Bo going back to the traditional weak and hidden presidential dog of the past.

I bet if you asked 10 random Americans in the street, many of them wouldn't even know who Bo is, or could even name him as the current first dog. And don't get me started about him sleeping in front of the fireplace on that Christmas Card.

This dog brings nothing to the table as ....

I was on the jury that locked General Discussion

At Thu Dec 22, 2011, 15:18 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

I've had it, I'm locking GD!11!1

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

You can't let this continue. These posts that unabashedly attack segments of DU "ie: "The blind supporters on here". This form then goes on to attack anyone who supports this president. Very much like a right wing troll would.

JURY RESULTS

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Thu Dec 22, 2011, 15:18 PM, and the Jury voted 4-2 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Wow, this is a close one.
I'd hate to see DU GD continue.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: Implying that GD or DU is fascist is insulting on it's face. As well as saying the right wing meme that GD has been a complete disaster.
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: I agree, it's over the top.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: "This forum is nothing but a little fascist fiefdom"
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Simple disagreement is not grounds for locking an entire forum.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.
