11. Aloha!

We used to live in a red county of WA State, so I sympathize. I lost my patience with some I met a few times Unfortunately there are some in this State (Hawaii), too, but they are a minority--Hawaii is blue.
Welcome.

35. Welcome to DU, to you, too, BigGermanGuy!

Glad you're here also! Just remember that there are WAY more of US than there are of the MAGAts. The only difference is, THEY relentlessly turn out to vote. And our side too often tends not to. Let's hope that changes, bigtime, next month.

My cousin lives in Pasadena...I lived for a brief moment in Owings Mills. The Maryland Death Fest is one of my favorite things in America.


Of course, none of that makes sense (but is all still true) if I misinterpreted your Balti.

43. Welcome to DU!

You've either stumbled upon, been (well) directed to, or successfully searched out the best political site on the Net that I've ever seen. Fantastically well-informed and committed folks here, friendly as hell, pretty much without exception, but will put up with no bullshit.

People here won't let a false statement stand, however well-meaning or unintended, but neither will they mock or shred the errant one. Intellectual rigour is the order of the day!

Enjoy yourself!!!
