Relatively new to DU

and I have to admit that after the election, I thought the discussions would be pretty boring without you know who to screw up a hundred times a day. But his minions are far more entertaining than he was and some are not even as ugly. Plus, he was getting to be sooooo predictable and these yahoos come up with new and impossible plot turns all the time. I mean who could have made up the My Pillow guy or MTG and the space lasers? They wouldn't have been possible even in the worst B movie or trash fiction, but here they are and they are soooooo CLUELESS. It's more fun to read your comments than it was with the orange monster. Thanks for the entertainment. And the comics are priceless.

I mean, I know it is serious and I sincerely hope that they somehow can take away the batshit crazy ones' guns before someone else gets hurt, but in the meantime, I'll take my laughs where I can get them. Nearly a year of lock down is the only excuse I have.

My first pick was Bernie because I'm an old hippie, but it wasn't long before I knew that Joe and Kamala were the A team. Thank whoever is out there and especially Stacy Abrams and Georgia for squeaking us through.

Shalom!

Not all of us of course, just some of us. But I'm not crazy, I promise. But DU does help quiet the voices in my head most of the time.

4. Welcome to DU

I'm sort of new myself, because I only joined just after the 2016 election.

DU helped me through these last 4 horrible years, and I will be forever grateful!

Thanks for posting and don't be shy in the future. Everyone is nice here.

7. I'm glad you're here.

I broke my outrage meter early on in the trump administration. I rebuilt it because I saw so much
more outrageous bs. But after a while I just shook my head.
I'll take my laughs where I can get them too. There were, and continue to be, so many.
The RWNJ BS is very serious, but also hugely comical.

10. This place will be twice as much fun, at least short term.

Not only do we see Progressive legislation and smart economic policy be made, we still get to ridicule the "new" Republican leadership. Apparently, with McCarthy's capitulation, Greene, Gaetz, Jordan (House), and Cruz, Paul, Rubio (Senate) will be the future leadership of the Republican Party.

22. Welcome to DU from another old Hippie.

I mean a genuine Haight Ashbury one.

I get some laughs here, too. That and a like minded wife of 25 years keeps me sane.

27. Remember sitting in class, and someone did something that made you want to explode with laughter,

but you had to sit there trying to look like you're not exploding with laughter? Here at Democratic Underground, you can laugh out loud, and I often do.

Really, it's the best remedy after suffering through the insanity and atrocities these people habitually commit.

34. Welcome, Diana!

This is the BEST place on the internet for liberal folks like us. If it's breaking news, you'll find it here first. DU is my "go to" place for news, opinions, great conversations, good thinking, critical analysis, and above all, fellowship with like minds.

35. Hi and welcome to DU!

I was a Bernie backer too, also an old hippie from the 60's. But I'm now crazy for Biden and firmly believe that he and Kamala are the PERFECT combo for right here, and right now. So happy with them both.

Meanwhile, you'll love DU.
