    NEW MEMBERS CHECK-IN THREAD #6

    Welcome to Jackpine Radicals.

    We are a site dedicated to progressive people and progressive ideals.

    Please come and join us for fun, discerning and informative conversation. You can rest assured that your individual take on things will be appreciated.

    I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the minimal rules we have here on JackPineRadicals before you start posting. They are found in About JackPineRadicals and Community Standards & Guidelines. Links to both are on the bottom of every page should you need them later.

    There is a pretty vast amount of information regarding things such as posting pictures and individualizing your avatar and signature in Help & Q&A. This informative thread is linked in your left hand navigation area under Main Forums.

    We are asking all members to become familiar with the rules and report anything that they think need be addressed. This is YOUR site and we need you to tell us when something posted is against the rules or is offensive.

    If you would like to introduce yourself to the community, post a reply on this thread.

    It should also be noted that naming other sites by name is forbidden. So we have set up a system of alternative names to get around this rule. Just ask members how to do it.

    And thanks for joining our merry little band.

          but I think you need to make 10 replies before you can make an original post. Something like that.

      28. Hello folks,

      I am also a refugee from SV, but I only lurked there.  I had joined and was about to compose an OP, just when the stench emanating from said site began to be worse than a mere open window could handle.  Thus i never did post there so never got banned, but no doubt would have in pretty short order.

      I first voted Dem. in 1976 for Carter and in every election until 2016.  I was so disgusted by the spectacle of cheating in the primary, I left the party and voted for the Socialist candidate.  I suppose if I had lived in an at play state, I would have voted strategically, But I don’t so I didn’t have to!  I have since left the party, and won’t be going back until the Corporate scum is out of the party.  Happy to be here!

      When i can post OPs I suppose I will make some posts on Asian history and Culture as well as Asian (particularly Japanese and Korean) films.

          30. How many posts before you can make an OP?

          SFFH, I was wondering how many posts you needed before making an OP.  Anyone know? Believe me, I’m not here to flame or upset (at least intentionally) anyone, other than the corporate sellouts, but then they’ve got bribes to collect, so I am sure they don’t malinger around here.

          Your Blue Footed Boobies always crack me up.  Gosh, they are goofy.

            31. Everyone, including the most wonderful and perfect moi

            had to have ten (10) posts before they could make their first OP.

            I even managed to get slapped up side the head by @marym625 before I made my first ten!!!! Maybe even five, but I’m getting old and decrepit so I’m getting forgetful these days.

            So. I suggest you go to a fun thread in Bar and Grill and do some posting replies, and make damn good and sure you show up in Daily Trivia today, and I pretty much guarantee you’ll be able to post after. The bestest way to hit a bunch of posts in a hurry is the Daily Trivia. Always at 6 pm Eastern unless it isn’t which happens on Sundays when Ohio does it at 4 pm Eastern. Just lurk until it is posted today by that shifty little smarmy dude, @deadpool. Then join in and give him grief with the rest of us.

      43. Hello again!

      I first came to JPR as a Discussionist refugee after it went down on election night. I went back to Discussionist, but finally had enough of the nonsense. No doubt there were some tired of my nonsense. So I called out the assholes and said my goodbyes, and here I am, wandering lost in the wilderness!

      How y’all doing?

      49. Hi folks, I'm baaack!

      I haven’t posted in a year. I read JPR for a long time and realized I don’t have to remember my password to log in! DUHH!

      That gorgeous woman you see in my avatar is me, when I was in law school in 1982 and couldn’t get a date.  I can only conclude that male law students are stupid, but what else is new?

      It seems that the liberal FB groups are full of Hillarybots.  I do not feel at ease around those women.  They assume that if you’re a Dem or a liberal, you must be a Hillbot.  (((BANGHEAD)))  Will people ever get over the idea that she is the New Messiah or else a she-devil?

      I certainly don’t trust her.

      In case I sound familiar, at DU3 I was named MOL by MagickMuffin. Before that at DU I was Perragrande and before that, Opera Nut.
      Cheers!
