I don't care who you voted for in 2016, I care who you'll vote for in 2018, 2020 +

Every time there's a slow news day this re-hashing/qualification of fitness to be on DU starts up.

As long as I don't have to hear anyone whining/defending/bashing what they did or didn't do right in '16, all are welcome as far as I'm concerned AS LONG AS YOU SWEAR TO F-ING GOD YOU'RE VOTING DEM IN THE FUTURE. (Otherwise, feel free to sod off.)

Stop talking about the past. Yes, our current political situation sucks, but finger pointing not only doesn't help, but it is quite Trumpian IMO. Use that pent-up energy to start doing something positive. Here are some suggestions:

-Harass the crap out of your congresspeople.
-Sign petitions (or start one of your own!).
-Attend a protest/counterprotest, depending on what the topic is. (And if you do, be safe and don't be a dick.)
-Support print media financially.
-Don't re-hash fights about Hillary, Bernie etc. It's over. Get behind fresh, talented, un-tainted faces who can get elected in the future (may I suggest Newsom/Klobuchar/Gillibrand/Harris etc.?)
-Help people register to vote if they are Democrats. Pretend to help Repugnicans register, only drop them off in a bad neighborhood instead.
-get your state reps to accept vote-by-mail with a paper trail.
-Refuse to speak to anyone who supports Republicans until they realize they're promoting racism, sexism and screwing the poor.

Remember, almost everyone on this forum already agrees with you on 99% of things. Where else can you get that?

Oh, and can we get working on a coherent Democratic message? We need your help!!

Russia warns US not to meddle in its elections

Source: USA Today

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov warned Washington on Friday against trying to meddle in next month's Russian regional elections.

"I do not know what plans the U.S. embassy has, ​​but there were many episodes when American diplomats were seen in illegal activities," Lavrov said, the state-owned TASS news agency reported. "The relevant services should take appropriate measures." 

"I think it's in the American tradition, maybe they do not even consider it an intervention, because they can all do it and it's in their blood," Lavrov said.

This would be hilarious if it were not so sick. Talk about projecting one's own guilt.

What's the story on the emoticons on this site? Haven't changed since Chimp was in office!

We haven't had new emoticons in over a decade people! Where are the howling apefaces, golden toilet tweets, treason weasels etc?

Can we at least retire some of the ones that never get used (I'm looking at you, , and )?

And BTW, perhaps I'm just being picky here, but the ROFL guy is either WAY overused, or people here are REALLY easily amused.

Starting right now: Correct anyone who says "election meddling" IT'S CYBER WARFARE!

"Meddling" is what your nosy neighbor does.
"Meddling" is your mother-in-law giving unwanted parenting advice.

Don't be fooled, there's a reason R's are using the word "Meddling". It sounds so benign as to be not even important.

Stop falling for it please!!!

from now on:

They say "Election meddling"
You say "You mean CYBER WAR".

Is it wrong to take a little bit of pleasure in this?
