Actually, Bob Dylan died in that motorcycle crash...

but he was such a hot property that the record company couldn't let him go, so they searched for a replacement who looked and sounded like him. They didn't find anyone who could convincingly mimic his voice, but they found this Zimmerman guy who looked like a dead ringer so they hired him and changed the musical style to cover for the different sound.

To try to maintain the poetic quality of the new lyrics while bringing the music more into the mainstream they offered Paul McCartney an insane amount of money to come write for him and that's why he left the Beatles.

We're dealing with the Crawling Chaos here.

I think of trump as the blind idiot daemon sultan who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.

Plus he's definitely got the "Innsmouth look".

Yep, seems most of the trolls who used to push the "apartheid" propaganda line are over at JPR now

bashing the Democratic party as worse than the Republicans and promoting their Trotskyite splinter groups that they never mentioned when they were here.

But while that's one easily identifiable chunk, the community that existed here before the election is clearly gone. I think it had more to do with the Admins' tolerance of trolls and disruptors who posed as Hilary supporters just to provoke division and animosity, and the elimination of community involvement through the jury system and Meta forum. They may have gotten rough at times, but they got everyone involved in the process and led to an open discussion of the problems that arose. Now posts just disappear with no explanation or discussion, and even those who participate in the new juries aren't told what most of the alerts are really about or even what the results are. That may have had the intended effect of shutting down personal attacks and bickering, but its also suppressed the basic debate and argument that I thought was DU's primary purpose and discouraged participation in general.

The root cause of suffering is ignorance of the fundamental truth

that all manifest forms are impermanent and transitory.

Yer welcome!

I want to know what happened in St. Petersburg.

By all reports on intel sources confirming the opo research dossier, there were at least two instances of sexual compromat involving Trump in Russia: the one in Moscow involving golden showers that everyone is talking about, and a second event in St. Petersburg that no one has described publicly yet.

Fuckface Von Clownstick works too.

I consider myself a member of the Sarah Silverman Brigade of the Bernie Revolutionary Forces.

I continue to support Bernie - for chairman of the Senate appropriations committee and leader of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

And I have no reservations about voting a straight Democratic ticket come November.

You can call me a "Bro" if you like, but I've never been a "Buster", and neither have most Bernie supporters. I think they're just being ridiculous, and there's nothing more that needs to be said about it.

It's a shame DU has become such a hostile and anti-Democratic environment.

It had such great potential, but as an experiment in mob rule it's degenerated into a blood sport for the most belligerent and fascistic bullies, with a distinct anti-Semitic undertone. We're already past the point where honest discussion and debate is possible.

What I find truly interesting

is the implication that the thinly veiled bigotry and hate-mongering that's become so prevalent here is so vile and disgraceful by real-world standards that the Democratic Party is repulsed by it and seeks to avoid any possible contact lest they be tarred by association with such disreputable filth.

There's been much discussion of late about how DU has changed over the years, perhaps the time has come to consider if the name "Democratic" still applies, or whether it has become a safe haven for something else.
