Love my new DU family!

I have been enjoying DU for about a month now. I am 50 years old and have always voted, but this election has become more personal for me. I have raised 4 daughters on my own. My two youngest 17 and 23 are the first to be interested in socioeconomics/politics enough to sit down and watch the convention and debates. There are a lot of issues on the table that will effect women and I am proud of them paying attention and wanting to take a stand.
I came across DU by chance, searching the net for some truthfulness in news and politics.
Thank you to all the DU members, I read "our" news and forums daily. I encourage my daughters to read and watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report with me. Great truths with wonderful humor!

5. Welcome grr8wine to DU

I am rather new here myself. I like to welcome newbies cause this can be a rather intimidating place at first.
We have a dysfunctional family here at times....but we also live in a dysfunctional world.Just maybe we can all make it right!
All together now one two three!

6. Welcome to the family, grr8wine!

I've been here since 2001, and I can tell you, it really is like a family.

Ask any old-timer; they'll tell you of our dear departed Andy, the beloved kephra, and many others whom we have called family over the years...


Glad to hear you are raising up a new generation of liberals!...

Step over to the Lounge sometime and introduce yourself.

9. Welcome grr8wine!

Glad you love it here - so do I - and already know how much there is to offer. You'll learn so much & add your ideas... and it'll be a good place to hang out as the election draws near.
