I lurked about for a few years the joined DU in 2011.

I enjoy coming here and having my say about this and that.

I take a bit of heat for being a devout peacenick, for being a radical environmentalist, and advocating listener supported journalism and news, amongst some other things. Nevertheless, DU is an invigorating experience overall, and I’m grateful for it.

Some of you all are brilliant writers, so reading here is a rewarding way of accessing news.

Keep up the good work DU

Notes to the Universal Soldiers:






No, no, no; oh hell no. Say it ain't so. Don't let this happen, Joe.

Any kind of gag-rule on scientists is wrong for Democrats.

Biden administration's rule for federal scientists is a 'gag order', critics say - The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/feb/10/biden-federal-science-research-rule-gag-order

Although I'm too lazy to count, my guess is that there are more posts about tfg than Joe on DU.

WTF, over.

Feds chase down immigrants but ignore massive law breaking by citizens along southern border.

This junk yard of shipping containers and barb wire “wall” Arizona/Ducey are erecting along our southern border is in flagrant violation of federal orders to stop. Yet, there are no federal law enforcement agencies on site to halt the environmental, humanitarian, and treaty busting disaster from continuing to unfold. WHY?

If the Federal fucking government are going to demand something then they should back that shit up. Yet, day after day—nothing but impotent inaction. Not a good look. wtf.



There isn’t a pathway out of homelessness in our nation which doesn’t pass through a massive paradigm shift and fundamental upheaval in what wealth means, how greed and wealth are socially viewed, and a clearly defined road away from vulture capitalism and extraction culture.

The Passing Of Old Women Who've Led Admirable Lives.

We live in a large retirement community here in Orange County California. Once strong, healthy, remarkable old women die in our village quite regularly, no fanfare, just attended to by such family and friends as the have left.

So, the “Queen’s” death? May she Rest In Peace. I offer up the same respect I do to the ending of my neighbors journey’s on destiny’s road. No more no less.

That said, the pomp, the wasteful opulence, the remaining silliness of monarchy and its ongoing schmooze with Oligarchs is at least an embarrassment. This ceremonial celebration of stacking one group of humans over, and obviously above, all others is the very root system of the hundreds of forms of racial, social, and caste structures flourishing today.

Power to the people, peace to all. Happy Labor Day.

When the people are disobedient
The people on top lose their power.—Howard Zinn

When a union goes on strike
The people on top lose their power—Howard Zinn

When the soldiers put down their arms
The war mongers lose their power.

Union Strong, People Power. HAPPY LABOR DAY EVERYONE
