This is really strange.

I have been using my android tablet for my computer needs and that goes for DU too. My Samsung tablet has had charging issues for a year and is a pain in my ass. It is a touchscreen tablet and I use it since I am sick, in bed a lot and broke due to med bills and I don't have a lap top. My desk top computer is for real stuff, like printing, cut and paste, etc. and is in my living area. Well, now I have to unplug it and stick it in my bedroom using a cordless keyboard and mouse. It is a completely different experience. The stuff on the screen isn't the same as my tablet and it is disorienting. Maybe I can actually post a photo now, of course it will take months to figure that out. I can see everyone's avatar and all sorts of other stuff that isn't on my tablet. I am undecided about liking it better or not. I am almost blind and I had to enlarge it until there are about 5 words that fit on the screen at a time. I can see everyone post total too. Yes, this is weird and the jury is still out on the pros and cons between the two devices. I kind of want my familiar tablet back since it takes a long time to type and use a mouse.


The National Student Walkout is a nationwide protest of our leaders’ failure to pass laws that protect us from gun violence. Mass shootings happen far too frequently in America, and we as a nation have become numb to seeing the news. After each one, the same cycle takes place: the media spend less than a week on the story, politicians offer their “thoughts and prayers,” and nothing ever changes. But after the horrific massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, young Americans are taking matters into their own hands.

On April 20th, the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting, American students will walk out of class and protest.

See if an event is being held near you. If not, start your own! RESIST! Peace.

Gorsuch sided with liberal judges today

in court ruling over immigrants convicted of crimes being forced to leave the US.

"The court's 5-4 decision — an unusual alignment in which new Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the four liberal justices — concerns a catchall provision of immigration law that defines what makes a crime violent. Conviction for a crime of violence makes deportation "a virtual certainty" for an immigrant, no matter how long he has lived in the United States, Justice Elena Kagan wrote in her opinion for the court.

The decision is a loss for President Donald Trump's administration, which has emphasized stricter enforcement of immigration law. In this case, President Barack Obama's administration took the same position in the Supreme Court in defense of the challenged provision."

Fux Ruse said they were "unaware" of Hannity's informal Cohen relationship.

They are giving him their "full support". Any normal, liberal news organization would've fired their on air journalists. Hannity is a personality who shares his opinion on their network (not an official journalist) so he gets to stay.

Did you know Cohen, Jared and Ivanka are Dems?

I googled Jared and Ivanka last year (after the inaugeration) and both were listed as Dems on their Wikipedia pages and so is Jared's dad. They have changed it since a year ago though. Also Cohen was a Dem except during 2002-04 and since 2017. I know that the fucking moron changed his political affiliation 5 times in 15 years.
I don't have a point, except that they are exceptional hypocrites for always putting down the "filthy Dems" when they were Dems themselves and that many people going against them now are the GOP (Rosenstein Mueller, McCabe, etc).


This Tax Day, one year after the first Tax March, communities across the country are taking action and speaking out against the TrumpTax. Leading up to April 17, grassroots activists, elected officials, and community leaders will join together at more than 100 events happening from coast to coast to hold Republicans accountable for forcing the new tax law through Congress and demanding that lawmakers repeal the TrumpTax. RSVP now to an event near you.


The Moron is speaking about his plan for Syria any min now.

If Bolton has his way, this could be pretty big. CNN just announced the WH will make the announcement to the US.

NOBODY IS ABOVE THE LAW protests if Mueller is fired.

Over 800 sites in the US have organized to go into rapid response mode and protest within hours of an announcement of Rosenstein or Mueller. Ted Lieu just said on CNN that if the moron does this action the people in the streets will be bigger than the Women's March and March For Our Lives. Check out the map to see if one is close to you (you can always organize yourself too). RESIST! REMOVE! Peace.


Our response in the hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

That's why we're preparing to hold emergency "Nobody is Above the Law" rallies around the country, in the event they are needed.

Use the map or search below by ZIP code to find an event near you, or create one if none exists.

Rallies will begin just hours after national events are triggered:

If actions are triggered BEFORE 2 p.m. local time —> events will begin @ 5 p.m. local time.
If actions are triggered AFTER 2 p.m. local time —> events will begin @ noon local time the following day.

March For Science April 14th.

The March for Science champions robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest.

Over 230 events world wide. The current administration is anti-science and they must be STOPPED!
