guys...seriously...support the ASPCA

they do such great work.....they really have few if any equals out there.

And they gave me my bearded wonder

They really do great work.....the only equal I have seen is some local PAWS groups...PAWS is worthy of support too

do you believe there was a historical figure the Jesus story was built on?

I SO want to believe there was a true man the religion was based on.

Of course I don't believe in the virgin birth and the resurrection and all the biblical myths.....but I truly want to believe there was a man 2000 years ago who was so in tune to true progressive idealism that he inspired an entire religion based on his teachings.A following that has been twisted into a cult that insults the meaning of everything the man said.

I SO wish progressives could take back the church and turn it to what I believe the man...not the myth....wanted us to be...a people who believe in helping there fellow man...a people who look to the least fortunate in our society and say how can we help instead of pushing them under the bus...a society who stands up to the money changers in the temple.....a society who turns the other cheek and believes in lifting all instead of standing in judgement.

I SO wish we could be the society that the bible says we should be instead of the society the biblethumping moneygrubbers have turned us in to

regarding WP...activism...and DU in general

All I can say is WTF happened to DU since we went to DU3?

This used to be the NUMBER ONE site for leftist activism on the net.I remember in 2004 when I was still somewhat a lurker we had entire days worth of posts dedicated to people planning voter drives and manning polling places and GOVT work.Hell,we would have threads to make sure we had someone manning every precinct we could possibly cover.

In 2004 DU was on the cutting edge of voter fraud and voting machine fraud.We had THE big hitters of the election fraud debate posting here.If you wanted info on the vote rigging...THIS site is where you came bacause the big players were here.

We were on the forefront of animal activism here not long ago.I was the biggest no kill activist in my area until I moved and with other no kill shelter activists around the country we literally saved thousands of pets and coordinated tons and tons of food to different shelters across the country to keep things going and worked to change the laws about killing shelter animals


NOW?We just fight and argue and parse words and take each others posts out of context and act like schoolyard bullies.

I don't care about saving DU3...DU3 is nothing but a bunch of bullies trying to win the playground fight.I want DU2 with the mods and the old system back.Maybe then we can get back the old feeling of community
