This bears repeating.

Think about it. Where we were then and where we are now.

Beloved President by many of us and vilified on the left and the right. DU is the left and he was called a POSUCS here and recommended by over 300 members here. Most gone now but not forgotten.

Obama Doesn't Owe This Country Shit

Barack Obama is not your Magical Negro. I know y’all want him to be, but you have to give the man a break. He just got out of one of the most abusive eight-year relationships imaginable. I’m sure he needs some time to decompress.


Nolan contends that Obama “sucks as a post-president” because rather than jump immediately into saving the same Americans who demanded to see his birth certificate, called his wife an ape, used “Muslim” as a pejorative against him and questioned every policy decision he made, he’s gone on to quietly enjoy his funemployment, living his best life and not worrying about what you haters think.


His old job is literally expecting him to come back and fix the fuckups of his replacement for free, just because he used to work there. Sir, please.

Then there’s this:
It is, in a very real way, a chance to pay back America for its belief in you—to use the incredible gift you have been given to do the maximum amount of good that you can in the time you have left.



The most privileged and entitled part of the entire essay comes in its last line, when Nolan says, “Barack Obama: your life is not just about you. Get your fucking shit together man.”

I would beg to differ. His life is about him. We don’t own him. We aren’t entitled to him. You don’t own him. You aren’t entitled to him. The days of America benefiting off the free labor of black folks are long over.

Think about this as 2020 is almost upon us. Think grasshopper. Think.

The Trumps are not only cruel but they're "rub salt in the wound" cruel

Donald Trump Jr. is also getting blowback — just like Ivanka — for posting a photo with his kids


Hours after his younger sister Ivanka posted a much-derided photo with her son, Donald Trump Jr. is catching heat for also sharing a photo of him posing with two of his kids. The comments were calling to his attention the scary plight of the children whom immigration officials have separated from their families at the border.


Isn't it the just the best to snuggle your little one — knowing exactly where they are, safe in your arms? It's the best. The BEST. Right, Ivanka? Right? https://t.co/X79r8aWInc

Dear @IvankaTrump,

Would you also love your Sunday if government authorities snatched away your sweet child and dragged him into a cold, dark detention facility?

Don't worry honey. We are white, rich and entitled.

He is a brilliant man.

“another tradition to politics, a tradition (of politics) that stretched from the days of the country’s founding to the glory of the civil rights movement, a tradition based on the simple idea that we have a stake in one another, and that what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart, and that if enough people believe in the truth of that proposition and act on it, then we might not solve every problem, but we can get something meaningful done.”

"Yes. Look around! He Sent The Women"

My 9 year old daughter Samantha asked me why we are all marching.

I told her that the world is in bad shape right now and we have to fight back.

She asked if God is sending help.

I said “Yes. Look around! He sent the women.” - Will Bailey


The Country chokes up as a president ignores her people in Puerto Rico.

US citizens ignored for a week while he tweeted away in a feud with the NFL. Supplies sit on the docks undistributed. Where is the Army, where is the Navy mr president? Where is your support? Your first comments after trashing NFL players was to trash Puerto Rico for their deficient, you did this when they are starving and dying from lack of medicine and water. Half the Country has little food and water. Ninety percent no electricity. Sure, you can make it for awhile without much food yet water, you only have a few days. Caption on CNN tonight...the WH is confident that the supplies will arrive on time. Bully for you asshole, it is already to late for many. I watched a short video that said the US CITIZENS IN PUERTO RICO are using trash bags as body bags for their loved ones. You are far to late mr president. Wow, mr fucking president you finally decided to act after someone finally told you that they are US Citizens and not just like those brown Mexicans that are just murderers and rapists...your words not mine.

This is not just your Katrina, this is genocide.

We know you are an egotistical ass, unbalanced, soulless and ignorant. You do your supporters proud. The rest of the sane knows exactly who you are.

May you and yours roast in hell mr president. You have put us through ours...it is your time

Haunting Photos Feature Trumps Sexist Comments Drawn On Womens Bodies *NSFW*


When Donald Trump won the presidential election in November, 18-year-old Aria Watson knew she needed to do something. So, she turned to art.

Watson, a first-year student at Clatsop Community College in Oregon, created a powerful photo series titled “#SignedByTrump” for a final project in a photography class. The images feature some of the sexist comments President-elect Donald Trump has made about women painted on naked women’s bodies.

Trump’s misogynistic comments paired with these women’s naked bodies serves as a powerful commentary on the damaging effect his words have had ― and will continue to have ― on so many women.

Watson told The Huffington Post she decided to mix her political opinions with her photography because she felt so strongly about Trump and Hillary Clinton. “I never really cared for or understood politics, but this year was different,” she said. “As a feminist, when I saw that Donald Trump actually won, my heart shattered.”


Watson explained why it’s important we continue to call out Trump’s sexism. “Kids are going to grow up and look up to this man for the next four years,” Watson said. “We can’t have a leader who says such horrible things about women. I’m scared that the way he speaks about women ― this sexism and misogyny ― will end up becoming a social norm.”

PLEASE. much more at the link.

I have to ask you.

Does the GOP and their incredibly filthy rich masters have a method to their madness, or are they just insane, narcissistic, megalomaniacs? Screwing the poor, the Vets, the minorities, the elderly, the infirm, the children, hell they don't need Cialis anymore, they screw us all and have a restful nights sleep. Their miniscule dicks are so proud of themselves!

Their minds are so fucked up with their incessant need to dominate that they do not think anything through. It is about now, MONEY MONEY MONEY POWER DOMINATION, I AM A MAN, our future has become bleak because of them all.

Let's think this through a bit. They are going to rip healthcare from us by destroying ACA. Twenty to THIRTY MILLION PEOPLE uninsured. Those that will probably die in the next year will be 45K. Then they are going after Medicare, a life line for seniors and taken away, we will die. Then, sad so many did not pay attention. SS. For some of us that is all we have. WE will die. Fact.

So. Going a step further here. Thousands uninsured, where the hell are they going to go when they are sick? Emergency Rooms will be overwhelmed. Some hospitals will treat you if you are uninsured, others deny treatment. Fact. The bodies will be stacking up and the hospitals that treat the uninsured will be going out of business left and right. You do realize the middle class will pick up the tab in taxes until we ourselves join the ranks of the dead and dying.

Bravo, you want us dead, you got your wish. I am rushing out to find a refrigerator box now! I might make it another year or so living under a bridge. You think this is a joke? It is NOT. You think I am kidding? I am NOT.

GOD BLESS FUCKING AMERICA land where we die so the rich can rule.

The music died.

America died.

I have to say.

I have never seen ANYTHING like this before.

I thought tRumps deplorable's were bad as they cheered on an avowed racist, bigoted, sexist man. Voted against their better interests, BECAUSE WHITE or something. So pitiful and scared, you are nothing other than sniveling sorry excuses for human beings. You are so terrified that you will lose your privileged white ass and what you believe to be your superiority, your "Reich" in this world, that you willfully voted him in without a care to the destruction of this earth and it's inhabitants.

Worse yet. A said progressive site after the election cheered Hillary's loss 'cause HILLARY IS NOT WELL LIKED, or something. Cheered it. Can you even imagine that? What type of Democrat would wish harm on another. Cheer the loss of ACA for 20 million? Cheer the loss of SS and Medicare? Cheer that we elected a predator in chief. Cheer that many will die, all minorities are at severe risk now, and they cheered.

You all just can't stand someone different than you and that is an incredibly sorry state you have put all of us in.

The color white is not all it is cracked up to be, it is a cool color. The absence of color it reflects heat where as black absorbs heat and light. I would far prefer to absorb the heat than reflect it.

Wake up. We are in deep shit.


President Obama has been the best thing that happened to this Country in the past, almost eight years now. His approval rating is at an all time high. You would never know that by reading DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND. To this day I am reading posts trashing him. Gawd, you people never give up. He has been trashed for years, by the GOP (One term President. You Lie. Ape. Not an American. He does not love this Country. Boy. N***er.) and by people that call themselves Dems here (POSUCS with hundreds and hundreds of RECOMMENDS!)

We are on the cusp of moving out of the light into darkness. We have our fears yet don't know the depths of despair in which we will sink. Under tRump we will lose it all. Our ACA. Medicare. Medicaid. SS. Our Environment. Rights. All. The tRump has declared war on all that are non white men. He has declared open hunting season come 01/20/17. If you are a woman. black. PoC. Jew. LGBTQ. Muslim. aged. different. tread carefully, you have a bulls eye on your back. Stick as close to your friends and family as you can. Watch for abuse around you, help them.

All I said may well be a moot point the psychotic deranged man with his angry puerile 3 am tweets has the nuclear codes. None of us will survive WWIII.

One way or another many people will die. That is a fact.

Street Artist Delivers Powerful Message To White America

“America is black. It is Native. It wears a hijab ... “

Oklahoma has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1968, and this year’s result was no different. Donald Trump won 65.3% of the state’s vote.

A powerful work of public art mounted in Oklahoma City on Sunday addresses those who gave credence to the racist, xenophobic and misogynistic language that dominated the president-elect’s campaign.

The piece, by street artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, pays homage to black Americans, Muslim Americans, American women, Latino Americans, and American immigrants ― all the populations deemed “other” and so loudly forsaken by the dangerous rhetoric of Trump’s camp.

“After the election, I immediately knew I wanted to make some public art during my trip to Oklahoma in a few weeks for Thanksgiving,” the artist wrote in a comment in Instagram. “I wanted to make something in a very Republican state that was a challenge to whiteness. So, I used a couple of recent drawings, one old drawing, and a drawing I did the day before installing this of my mother, to put together a diverse group of folks.”

The piece reads: “America is black. It is Native. It wears a hijab. It is a Spanish speaking tongue. It is migrant. It is a woman. It is here. Has been here. And it’s not going anywhere.”

Tatyana's work is breathtaking in it's power. Look in their eyes, all four of them, they draw you inside and gives you a glimpse of their souls.
