      That the new look??

      Seems pretty chickenish to me.

      What the heck, I have never signed one of these before.

      I’ve been here since 2016, came from Fort Voldemort, never looked back.

      I sure miss Third-way Manny. He cracked me up royally. Anyone know what became of him?

      Changed my screen name because I just don’t feel very “enlightened” these days . . . though I’m afraid I’m still long-winded and pedantic (I promise to try and keep it in check).
      Working to get Bernie in the White House, where I hope he can ram some democratic socialist sense down the throats of the hide-bound Dems in Congress. Have developed super-hearing that allows me to recognize the whining tone of the CheetoBoy in less than a syllable – and the speed to hit mute before I am assaulted with idiocy. Handy skill, though not really something that would impress the corporate overlords. Recently took a “strengths test” at work (save us from industrial psych, Bernie!) that revealed I should be living in a remote cave with a full library, internet access, cats, and no people. Surprisingly accurate, that one.

      *reads above, sighs*

      Obviously, I’m not losing long-winded anytime soon. Sorry, everyone . . .

      Since being purged from that other site for supporting Bernie. I’ve been lurking but have not posted. I had some serious personal issue which kept me from posting but now I’m back.

      Just a heads up, they are purging Bernie supporters again at that other site. So expect more traffic.

      Does “resurrected” count as “new”?

      Former 1.0 member. MyDogsBFF or something similar. Mostly posted on climate, conservation, animal, & garden stuff. And cyber. Dutifully remain daily lurker.

      I re-enrolled the night Bernie SMASHED the Fox gig (3/9/20 ?). It may be nostalgia now but his surgical execution during this event was insanely amazing to me. I have not seen or heard a more compelling or coherent reason to support LIFE in my advanced adult-hood. Yes, it was that inspiring.

      Back when there were board issues and we all had to re-register I never got around to it, though I did everything I could to support both Bernie’s campaigns. Never did post much, but always been a daily lurker. You can use any definition of ‘mad’  for the first part of my screen name. They’re all equally true. Cheers.

      Edited due to damn auto-correct.

      Hello, I am a long time JPR but have been away for a while due to illness and caring for grandkids while their parents are working. However, I am experiencing a message when trying to post that says I am somehow violating the policies here.  I have not been here in over a year (even though my profile says I ‘ve only been a member for a year when it is more like 2 or 3 years).  I see your awesome redo on the website and like it btw. I am not sure why I cannot post or why the message says I am somehow disobeying something, I do not know what. BTW it asked me for my IP address and I sent it with a request from the staff about this matter but Have not heard back.

      Frankly, I love being home and not running here and there but enjoying being inside by myself.  Take care and have fun with your self-whatever-isolation you are experiencing. Hopefully, it is keeping the website busy enough to be busy but not to busy jamming up the lines.


      Sincerely, Cat Sullivan (CatInSeattle)

      After a long break from all political boards I’m back.  I would swear that I had an account here, or maybe it was at Democrats for Progress.   Anyway, it’s good to see some familiar names, and I wonder where some of my old friends have gone other than those I know on Facebook.

      as evident by the username, although I’m not actually evil. Just voted for Benie today via mail-in ballot in NY. Not that it matters anymore…

      My password was still here, my name was here. That was nice, and easy.

      I stay away from most Democrats now because I’ve become a fan of President Trump, and even the most spiritually enlightened comrades are full of ugly vitriol, meanness, misinformation.

      Returning here after so long:  it seems my last post was close to two years ago, when  liberal censorship was beginning to suffocate me. Was it happening here, too? Back then, it was about climate, and science, and anything that was not anti-Trump. I can’t remember. I remember when DU went toxic. Did Jackpine?  I don’t know why I haven’t been back, if it was bc politics or a broken computer.

      The current anti-trump syndrome seems a purge of the worst in people. Apparently I am immune to it, maybe from living in the wild west, surrounded by maskless people shooting guns at night bc goddam raccoons; people are passionate poor moral and all work harder than I do.

      I hope someone will let me know if there is any Trump support here on this site these days, I am hungry for the company of intelligent rational people with common sense who don’t hate.

      Most of my former comrades are full of angst, fear, and anger. They are imagining the worst, every day. They sacrifice everything to their fears. They have forgotten the very recent past: the war criminals, the cheating in 2015. Now they are voting to follow Joe into his long dark winter.. makes me want to cry. NoThanks, I am for Hope.

      Which seems like a long time.
      Thanks to whomever took me out of purgatory.

      History doesn't repeat. We just make the same old mistakes in new contexts.

      Hi Everyone!  I am a long time Bernie supporter and have eventually migrated to this site as a place to find folks who share my outlook on the world.
