just an idea

Can you add a MIRT alert to either the OP or altogether? If just on the OP we can use it like we do for SoP violations in the thread

There have been quite a few times I have to look for who is on MIRT, try to find someone that's on, or go through a jury when a mirt person would be more appropriate.

Thanks for your consideration

I don't care what anyone thinks about their right to own guns

These things suck. There is absolutely no reason or excuse to have so many guns. For every fucking lunatic in the US to own a gun. The second amendment was never made to justify the current frenzy.

Fuck the NRA. FUCK the 2nd amendment. Fuck this lunacy. I'm sick of watching people die.

My heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Alison Parker and Adam Ward.

Just a reminder on how to report group violations

Please take a moment to read this. It will ensure all hosts are notified. http://www.democraticunderground.com/128010529

Thank you all for helping to keep this group a real safe haven for those of us that are sick of the status quo, third way, bull hockey and support Bernie Sanders

Attended my first Bernie event in California today

The Farmer's Market at Jack London Square, right on the water. Was a beautiful place, beautiful day and awesome little event.

This event was put together by a woman named Joy, a DU reader and Thom Hartmann fan, who helped organize the grassroots campaign for President Obama. Evidently, she was flown to Chicago to learn how to teach volunteers. (Really hope I got that right since she will be reading this. )

Joy brought great flyers, "Meet Bernie" that she shared with two other volunteers and me, that we passed out for a couple hours.

I was very lucky to meet Joy, Cheri and Eve. These are three very well informed women. They're as anxious as all of us here to make sure this country, this world, has a chance, and that Bernie Sanders is our next President.

Had some great conversations with people who were interested in Bernie. The gamut ranged from 18 year olds to people in their 70s. All colors, all shapes and sizes, couples, both straight and gay, etc. Just about everyone was interested to learn more about Bernie.,

There were people who stood and discussed for a while and some that just took the flyer, wanting to learn more, and a few that never heard of Sanders but listened, asked questions and took an interest.

All in all, it was a great little event.

I can't wait to find out what Joy and these women have to teach me.

Joy talking to an interested man who approached her

Cheri and me (In the Guns and Roses shirt) pretending because I screwed up my picture of her passing out flyers, they were all leaving and I wanted pictures of all of us working for Bernie.

Bernie Sanders is the easiest sell in the world!

Total aside but I got the best strawberries I have ever had in my life at the farmer's market
