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.

Sitting at home, drinking an ale, and watching the Nats game when suddenly....

they played a Christmas Commercial*!

Holy crap, summer ended days ago.

* W.B. Mason was the culprit.

Found a pic of Sen Mitch McConnell pulling his latest attempt at destroying the ACA.

We were promised flying cars, instead we got sucidical robots


Have you ever heard of, or played the following games:

Cosmic Wimpout (dice game)

Illuminati (by Steven Jackson)

Traveller (a RPG)

Stellar Conquest (it is a strategy board game, but there was a play-by-mail version too)

What is up with advertisers notions of "winning" these days?

I groaned when all the commercials for back-to-school sales included the phrase, "Win back-to-school", but now they are encouraging me to "win" Halloween.

I'm as competitive as the next guy, when it is warranted, but is it necessary to "win" a holiday or non-competitive event? I do realize that their definition of winning involves buying stuff, but c'mon.

More Poorly Written Protest Signs At Fenway Park

From Conan O'Brien

Anyone see "Wind River"? Very good film. N/t

Buying a lair with subterranean volcanic vents and a shark pool. Is it worth it?

Sure some people think that volcanic vents lower the resale value and that shark maintenance costs are high, but I enjoy entertaining.

1. Take a statement or off-the-cuff comment from some Democratic elected official.

2. Twist it and take it out of context.
3. Post your outrage to social media and web forums
4. Attack Democrats who support elected Democrats to take pressure off the right wingers and Russian bots
5. Post more outrage and revel in your social media attention!
5. Repeat ad nauseum.
6. Congrats! You're a pure star! Winning!

If this is yours or one of your friends to do lists, please stop. You are not helping the cause, the party, or your favorite pure candidate. Please find something better to do with your time. You are only helping the opposition and those chaos-causing Russian bots.
