Hello DU, I am Nowsam.

I am very happy to be participating at DU. I consider this forum to be the real news. The people's media. I choose the name Nowsam because I believe the time is now for Uncle Sam to embrace all the people who make up the nation. I believe the time is now that we care for the children, the elderly, the sick and the poor. If we do not turn this ship around right now we are doomed. The promise of our pledge of Allegiance says we are one nation indivisible. Are we as a society going to live the truth of this pledge or is it just lip service?

We must come together. How do we embrace those who believe the lies of vulture capitalism and trickle down economics? How do we reach the hearts and minds of those who are blind and deaf to the plight of those who are suffering? How do we live with haters?

Somehow we must come together.

Thank you, DU. I used to post here years and years ago but was dismayed and disillusioned and left the conversation. I have still been a passive reader of the forum for years and now I re-join the the conversation because Bernie Sanders, Robert Reich, and Elizabeth Warren and many of you have given me hope by shining a bright light on the many injustices that must be - must be remedied.

Thank you for welcoming me and allowing me to participate here.

3. Hi NowSam and welcome to the DU.

I'm curious; you say that you used to post here years and years ago. What was your name back then? Anyway, welcome!

4. Thanks for the warm welcome!

I appreciate it and I do feel very welcome. I used to post in the early 2000s under a username that would immediately identify me and remove my precious anonymity. I didn't post that much but have always followed the threads. I love that so many people are of like minds and that gives me hope that we can make positive change in our world.

I will share that I am 49, live in the San Fernando Valley. I am a father, a husband, entertainer, sole proprietor and fervent Bernie supporter.

Once I get to know folks here better I will probably share more about myself.

Thanks again!

7. Pretty straight forward.

Replying to an original post (OP) will kick it and clicking the box that says 'DURec' in the OP will recommend it.

9. A warm welcome

and I'm sure we'll be hearing some good contributions from you. So much to check out on DU, it can be overwhelming. Don't know if you're on FaceBook (which overall drives me nuts), but there is a good DU page on there. Be well, mi amigo!
