About Me

I've been a member of DU for over 14 years, but now it is time for me to check out. The glee people on this site took over bashing Gov Northam is too much. EW Jackson, VA's version of a RW troll is being respected and his options considered while the Gov who expanded medicare to 800,000 citizens of my state (including an adult son) is bashed over a 35-year old indiscretion. I see DU as being infected by RW trolls and ratfuckers while the admins are largely absent. See 2016 if you don't believe me. While Northam was being bashed, threads appeared bashing Harris (she took a hard stance against Franken) and Booker (he's corporate) and promoted people who will never be elected in America such as Gabbard and Sanders. Their indiscretions are ignored. For what reason? Their unelectability? The members here that aren't RW trolls or ratfuckers are attempting to achieve some type of purity that will never happen due to mankind's flawed nature. People ar human and prone to mistakes. The rhetorical tools that attack people such as HRC, Franken and Northam will be turned on people like Kamala Harris and Justin Fairfax. It is only a matter of time. I refuse to help the RW and the PURE destroy people and our party. DU was a noble idea, but is a tool on the internet being used to ruin the Democratic Party, suppress the vote, and destroy decent candidates. I won't take part in this crap any longer. To my couple of friends here, so long, it was nice chatting with you. You know how to reach me if you want.

Ok, who had General Kelly, In the Conservatory, with the Rope?

Trump-inspired street art

How long until Trumpy tries to amend the Constitution via tweet?

He's tried making laws, firing people, inciting violence, obstructing justice, denigrating the free press, interfering with the judiciary, re-writing history, changing reality, and issuing military orders via tweet. What's next? (What's left? )

A complete history of presidential visits at National Jamborees (from a scouting blog)

Visits from the president are a Jamboree tradition.

Seven of 11 sitting U.S. presidents who were in office at the time of a National Jamboree showed up in person to address giant crowds of Scouts.

Itís a tradition that dates back to the very first Jamboree. President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the 1937 National Jamboree in grand style. He posed for photographs, awarded an Eagle badge and had his touring car swarmed by well-wishing Scouts.

Since then, many sitting presidents have stopped by the National Jamboree, arriving by car, train or helicopter to meet Scouts and share their thoughts about Scouting.

Here are those stories.

The first woman to start a bank a black woman finally gets her due in the Confederacys capital

Maggie L. Walker started a newspaper. She was the first countryís first woman to found a bank. She was a humanitarian, a teacher, an icon of her community in 1920s Richmond.

She was also the daughter of a former slave.

Walkerís accomplishments in the face of racial oppression and segregation have never been honored in her hometown in the same way as the Confederate leaders whose statues are the focal point of downtown Richmond.

But on Saturday, 153 years to the day she was born in the former capital of the Confederacy, Walker will get her own monument, a towering statue of her as she lived ó her glasses pinned to her lapel, a checkbook in hand.

As Maddow and Lawrence report on the use of Russian Propoganda on websites, I remember

here on DU how much Sputnik News and RT was promoted. Here's some examples of what the Russians were doing:

(Note to members of the Frequent Alerter Association: This isn't a call out since the propaganda promoter was banned and it isn't re-fighting the primaries since no candidate is mentioned.)

Time to put Trumpy's ugly mug on some milk cartons, he's
