And I am done, permanently with GDP.

I received a hide for pointing out someone saying Hillary is equally capable of a nuclear war as Trump, that this person should not be allowed here.

So that is it, done with GDP, forever.

The human race is on a fast track, so to speak, to destruction, Drumpf or no Drumpf, but his inevitable election in November seals it.

9. I have it trashed,

but I get called to jury duty in there almost continuously, so I end up reading it anyway. But I figure if I have to go through extra steps to find it, at least it cuts down on the time suck.

Never start a thread there, or in any of the main forums. That is my main rule for sanity these days.

I care too much, and not just about politics.

It is a flaw, it causes me health problems.

My "caring" isnt always productive, either. So I need to slow down and accept certain realities.

possibly change someone elses mind about the election. If I find an interesting story about it, I will post it in GD-P but I never look back or reply. Just way too many people that get too much joy by starting arguments.

Nope not worth it.. Have a good day.

It is getting to be time for political action IRW, and that helps me too. When I can do real work that matters, I find I grind my mental gears less. If I can come home and think, YES, I registered six new voters today, had some GREAT political discussions with people who are not crazy AND trained a new volunteer.... I feel relief and don't need to blow off steam online. And like you, I have a lot of steam.

Let's put it this way - the past three days I've served on 3 juries (only today) each day.


All 10 have been for awful tos breaking posts in GDP. Just stay out of there.

I honestly dont know what to do with people who say they are liberal and also say they wont vote for Hillary if she wins.

It seems like the Twilight Zone to me.

Hell, not one of them can even IMAGINE how liberal and Socialist I am

But that has NOTHING To do with the inevitable reality that Donald Trump represents death.

Translation: You said something I don't like, but I lack verbal skills, so to compensate, I will call you mean names.

Oh yeah, also, I have Tourette's as of yesterday because I guess I said something someone didn't like more than one time. Um, that is an insult to people who actually have Tourette's too, which is an actual, real disorder. So it was an ad hominem AND offensive to people with the neurological disorder, but *I* am the one with a problem? I guess I should have alerted, but why bother?

It gets old. We have been promised a better moderating system in the near future so hopefully that mess will stop soon.

47. I hate GDP

There is so much mythical bizarre thinking in there. Just ignore everything said in there. Hillary is going to beat Trump. Just about anyone could beat Trump. It isn't even going to be a close election, despite what ridiculous members of DU keep saying. I voted for Bernie so I know supporting Bernie doesn't have to make you say stupid things like that Trump would be less likely to get us into a war than Hillary, or that he's safer with regard to Social Security. People are just talking out of their asses at this point. I imagine a lot of it is simply sour grapes. "My candidate lost so I'm going to shit all over yours."

It's shocking how much is written in GDP and how little of it has any value at all.

Just wait a bit and things will improve. I suspect a number of people will either leave on their own, or will be made to leave.

It really doesn't matter what the issue is.

You've kind of had a chip on your shoulder ever since you switch to being a HRC defender. Its going to be ok even if some DUers don't like HRC or resent the machine that supports her.

B. I support now and always have Bernie, but will defend Hillary because I am able to see the damage ANY con would do, let alone Drumpf.


Liberals agree with me, I dont know what the Bernie or Bust people are, they are NOT liberals, that is a fact.
