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.

"Christian family band who sang about End Times arrested after deadly gunfight in Arizona Walmart

parking lot"

An evangelical Christian family band that believed in a coming Jesus Apocalypse was arrested last Saturday following a deadly gunfight outside a Walmart parking lot in Cottonwood, Arizona. Nine suspects were involved in a violent brawl that left at least one person dead. Suspects arrested from the Gaver family included Peter Gaver, 55, and his sons, Jeremiah, 29, and Nathaniel, 27, all from the small-time Christian band Matthew 24 Now.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety reports that Cottonwood police officers arrived at the Walmart after a store employee was assaulted during an encounter with the family. The Gavers had been living out of a large van with Idaho license plates in the parking lot for the past few days, and entered the retail store to use the toilet when trouble ensued.

Martin O’Malley hopes years of political investment in Iowa pay off

Over the past two years, as Martin O’Malley has mulled a run for president, he has poured hefty resources into Iowa, appearing at 24 campaign events and fundraisers, lending 14 staffers to Democratic candidates and the state party, and donating more than $40,000.

Of the 32 staffers whom O’Malley dispatched from his PAC, 14 were sent to Iowa. O’Malley sent people and money to help the Iowa Democratic Party, a U.S. Senate candidate, four congressional candidates and several state politicians.

“Frankly, they were terrific,” said Scott Brennan, who served as party chairman last year and has not yet committed to a presidential candidate.

Despite Clinton’s commanding lead in the polls, O’Malley advisers see Iowa as potentially fertile ground, given the former secretary of state’s third-place finish there in 2008 and grumbling among activists about her absence from the state this year.

In Iowa, O’Malley sounds a lot like a Democrat liberals love: Warren

DAVENPORT, Iowa — Again and again, the activists jumped to their feet, cheering on such promises as breaking up big banks, reining in Wall Street’s “reckless gambling” and addressing the country’s “gross concentrated wealth.”

They might have been listening to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose populist crusade on income equality, health care and Social Security have prompted legions of liberal Democrats to try to draft her into a bid for the presidency.

But the speaker was Martin O’Malley, the former Maryland governor who spent the weekend stumping across Iowa.
