    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.
