I didn't think there could be anything sweeter than an Obama win

Apparently I was very wrong. This is even better!

After witnessing this election, one thing is CHRYSTAL CLEAR:

Voter suppression still works.

What I did after watching Rachel Maddow tonight 6-19-20

She reported about the hostile takeover of Voice of America and other media outlets by a Steve Bannon associate. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

I replied to another DUer earlier in the week that I was going to become a star member again. I had moved and changed banks, and had not gotten around to redoing my membership.

No longer! I promptly got my credit card out, and swiftly chose the monthly donation option. I am a Star Member once more!

I sincerely suggest that all non-Star members reading right now do the same. We must not let these right-wing lunatics reduce our access to actual news. Donating is a step in the right direction!

Disclaimer: No Admin has prompted me to post this, nor do they know that I'm doing it. It is my friendly suggestion to make this site even better than it already is, plus sticking a thumb in the eye of fascists. A Two-fer!

I am proud to say that I have been reading and contributing to DU since 2004, and I want it to stay around for a really long time. Who's with me?

I'm sitting in a Menards parking lot in Princeton, IN

My husband went in for some tools he needs for his job. Yes, he is still working outside our home.

Beautiful day, windows on the car are partially down to catch a nice breeze.

Remember, this is the middle of bright Red Trumpster town.

Menards only has one entrance open. People are stomping away from the others like children because they aren't being allowed in to their chosen door

Menards is requiring masks to he let in. Some people have them, some people don't, and then go to their car an miraculously find one. Others stomp off like children because they aren't being let in without one

If right wing Toadies Menards is turning away customers without masks, this virus is serious.

All of a sudden I see Snowflakes...

Who remembers the Terry Shiavo case?


Link to give info for those who don't.

The right wing lost their shit over this woman, demonstrating day after day after day.

She would be first to go in today's GOP world!
