I imagine him blathering wildly for 4 years while the rest of the govt focuses on keeping him happy

Busting their balls so Trump will like them, not make fun of them,
while at the same time trying to keep the 3-branch-function functional.
But not changing much for the little people.

Hillary, I think, would change her email security setup, but I don't feel
confident much else, at least not for the good of the little people.
Clinton Foundation likely to thrive, though, and probably a few questionable
leaders of oil rich nations will appear to become increasingly dangerous,
so under HRC the MIC will need lots and lots of money bombs planes jets
and clusterbombs in order to kill them and wreck the country then once
that's done the CLinton Foundation will need lots and lots of money for
humanitarian aid to the wartorn land.

I thought it was for people who believe unshakeably in democracy and democratic values

and the "Underground" part is because those who stay informed and
active are VERY OFTEN not in the Democratic Party mainstream and
are the ones who will keep pushing for progress.

An underground based on "settling" for an undesirable candidate isn't
doing much. The underground in the Civil War wasn't about how to
compromise with the slaveowners.

the underground in WW2 wasn't about finding a practical way to work
with the Hitler administration.

I thought Democratic Underground would be a place for actual progress
so I'm a little disappointed to put it mildly, that Skinner is so ready
to back someone under FBI investigation. Not pragmatic at all.

Maybe "Democratic Towtheline" would be a better name for
the site?

it will take a lot more to win me over -- I see zero reason to trust

and can't envsion any change or scenario, even a public confession of guilt, that could re-establish the trust.

People who distort the truth as comfortably as they breathe don't become trustworthy.
Just doesn't happen, or very rarely happens.

Takes a middle of the night visitation from the Ghosts of Liars Past Present & Future to awaken the conscience of a habitual liar. Takes being broken down, back to the beginning, takes humiliation of the ego, and/or life-changing scares. Bill had his law license revoked I believe for lying under oath. What sort of standards matter? I dunnno. Not gonna throw my hope, or my vote, away. This is one compromise not worth making.

Dear random GoodfuckingPoster of Gratuitous Insults

I don't know if this is pointless, if you enjoy making a post like
that one -- not very original, unnecessary, adds nothing, potentially
does harm to another, it seem that's your intention, and you are
ok with such a little mean girl shit post because you want me to
feel at ease here on DU?

Maybe I'm being unfair, & your words conceal a higher purpose
than simply to wound another, demean, or increase your post #s.
Maybe it is a gaseous condition, an illness caused by inability
to access your conscience?

Or possibly your organic CPU was hacked by a sadistic egomaniac?

I didn't sign up here to stand beneath the windows of anyone's
vomitorium; but it's not hard to discern the quality and the
intention of your contribution. Why the goodfuckingchrist
did you even bother? What for? What benefits?

also this just in:
Goodfuckingjesus has been exceptionally busy sorting out karmic
debts investigations & misunderstandings, on top of salvation
obligations, and hasn't yet had the time to read your post or to
goodfuckinganswer your question.
But keep in mind that some answers from GFJC will come only
as a feeling, sans words, sans concepts.
Often subtle, and easy to ignore. So best of luck.. be alert!
look sharp!! Guard your humanity, your beautiful Imagination,
use them well, and wisely, for the good of humankind, not for
gratuitious insults of people you don't even know, nor for any
other unkind purpose.
It is my humble request to you, o great & noble Denigrator.

at least you don't presume I am lacking my happy safe place.

I know bacon is delicious. But more delicious, to me is a
living, sentient critter who looks me in the eye, with trust
no less, not expecting I will slice & dice him. Couldn't justify
killing a friend for food, certainly not if I had other options.
Eating them wouldn't work well for any of us, esp the feral cats.

Since I'm not starving or even close and there are other options,
it seems nonsensical to put myself or the pig through such
an ordeal, just so poor hungry me can eat some bacon. It's
not a tough choice, but I know for many it's no contest, the bacon wins.

Therefore I stand in solidarity with the Badtasting New Mexican
and Californian Pigs for Bernie Sanders or Bust.

Bacon or bust, no. Bacon vss Bernie, no. Bacon
vs newspaper pancakes... harder, maybe. ok probably,
unless I had to kill the pig myself. and esp if we had
already become friends.

Didn't someone read you Charlotte's Web when you were
little? Pigs aren't bacon! Pigs are some!
Pigs are radiant!, terrific!, humble! and
full of love. What is most delicious to me is alive. Life itself,
that exquisite energy, and all it animates.
