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

WTF, over.

Problems and disasters are news, quiet competency isn't. That's why TFG (and now Musk) come up so much, both on DU and in the media.

25. Agreed, a problem must be acknowledged, faced. and met with appropriate action.

Yet, lack of power is our dilemma where tfg is concerned. Action is called for, but we must rely on politicians who’ve set themselves beyond our reach and control. Therefore we resort to shaking our frustrated word-fists while posting pictures of our despised enemies and descriptions of their latest vile utterances. Mine is an annoyance of frequency and photographs.

After all he has done to this country, it is only right we witness his destruction.
And watch the MAGAs turn on him.

Also it is foolish to ignore what our enemies are doing.
The people who wish us dead.
We ignore them at our own peril.

39. Mother Teresa got plenty of attention

 

And far more of it than that evil wretch ever deserved. She was NOT a good or kind person.

She never met a rich person or dictator she wouldn't both adore and suck up to.

Her "charity" was no such thing. She MADE poor people suffer rather than give them pain relief they needed, because she was such an evil psychopath that she got off on their pain. She thought their suffering was "holy," so she made them do plenty of it to feed her religious lunacy.

Anyone who calls that a good thing is as evil as she is.

Trump is undermining democracy and all of his utterances need to be examined, dispelled and rejected.

The DU message board is a perfect venue to handle that task.

...I was coming home from a school where I subbed to our southwest.
Coming home through a town to our WSW, the trains were stopped, all the intersections & crossings were blocked, and so on.
A 60 something guy jumped in front of the train. As I got through the main intersection & continued on, I saw people standing on top of their vehicles with their phones taking pictures of the bloody front of the train.
Accurately describes what you're talking about.

It moons ago and couldn't.. " Redundant a hundred times over"

And it's like some kind of torture device - the harder we try to stop it the worse things get! And for the other side, our complaints just pile up in the " they hate him" pile. Our complaints actually give HIM fuel .

It's years too late to stop the now out of control speeding train. Shout out to the 6 brave Democratic House Members who brought impeachment charges to the floor on November 15 2017!

Even if he loses at the ballot box, he's not going away. All we can rely on now is the courts to throw him in prison.
