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.

" Mitt Romney’s American Safari"

By Jonathan Capehart

"As we learned and saw during his quest to secure the Republican nomination, Mitt Romney has a habit of doing two things he apparently hopes will ingratiate himself to voters. One is flat-out pandering. The other is waxing amazed at what he just saw or who he has just met as if he were a traveler in a strange and distant land for the first time. This latter trait is so disconcerting that when the former Massachusetts governor was making his way through the South in March, I made this pithy observation.

With regard to Mitt Romney, poor guy, the only second time he’s had catfish ever and cheesy grits and a biscuit, it’s almost as if we’re watching Mitt Romney on safari in his own country."

A friend who works across the street from the courthouse tells me that there are DOD officials on the scene. Sorry, not much other info.

"Are you suffering from... election fatigue?"

"It's a given that the upcoming election will be screwed up" by Derf

Thanks Skinner.


And for those that will bemoan this action, the next step after claiming that any election we lose is stolen is to make the case that voting doesn't matter.

We will never win elections by staying home to show our displeasure.
