For my 10,000th post, I feel like I should be saying something profound.
As the number was approaching, I have been trying to come up with the right ideas but have not found anything earth shattering or that hadn't been said before by others.
What I can say is that DU is very important to me. I am a rare Democrat in ruby red south Arkansas. Reading DU every night keeps me grounded in the knowledge that we few Democrats here in the piney woods are not alone.
I have made friends that I will never meet. I have had valuable discussions with well informed people on important issues. I also enjoy the lighter side of DU in the Lounge. There are frequent posters for whom I cannot leave posts unopened.
I appreciate the work done by EarlG, the administrators, and the MIRT in keeping DU a safe and sane place for discussion.
Thanks for being a DU Member. You are very good man to live in red Arkansas as a democratic.
You spoke for me and many others, and I congratulate you on your 10,000th post!!!!!
DU is the BEST!!!
Thanks TomSlick, and please continue to post regularly.
you have contributed 10K aspirations that have triggered even more inspiration among us readers!!!
were out there. We are facing total insanity right now, and we need to be there for each other. Cheers Tom. ED
And I'll echo your thoughts on all of the DU citizens here, especially the admin folks who keep this great machine maintained.
Forgot to add Congrats.
DU is about keeping ahead of the insanity from the other side. Before I found DU, early on in the tfg regime, I wondered if anyone else felt as hopeless, depressed and disgusted, as I did. When I found DU, I was able to embrace the truth of my observations an I had a forum of kindred democrats, to work on a solution. I've become active in organizing and getting out the vote in my precinct and the community at large.
Glad to have you here.
I'm working up to my 10,000th post and wondering what I will say when the time comes!
I think this 10,000th post was just great and will keep it in mind when it's time to compose mine!
but I won the Pulitzer Prize with my 10,000th DU post. So you can strive for that sort of distinction with your 20,000th post, Tom!
Congrats on 10,000. Keep 'em coming!
We don't get up there nearly as often as we would like.
