1. Welcome.

I don't do Facebook.

I have a Twitter account, but have never sent a tweet.

I receive business e-mails, but never send any.

I only blog on this site.

I think you will fit in well.

"That man" has pushed the majority of decent people over the edge.

I joined in 2004. I don't post much as you can see. But I think about half of my posts are since Trump entered the race. I'm over the edge right with you!

I get most of my news right here on DU. So even if you don't post and comment, most likely you'll learn stuff first right here on DU. With lots of links to learn more.

I believe we'll see many more people becoming DUers in the near future as they seek a sense of sanity in the Trump era.

Welcome!

15. Welcome, thinkingagain

there will be many times you will find this lounge to be a very welcome respite from the politics of General Discussion (GD) and some of the other forums.

Frankly the Lounge has really done a lot to keep me sane the last couple of years.

resources (and many posters bring us the social media goodies)

This is one of the best sites I've been involved in and am glad to be a part. I'm sure you will be too. This man-baby who's been installed in our white house must be forced out and we can get many good ideas here.

28. Hi thinking

I lurked on DU for about two years before i joined in 2008. I don't post much, but DU is my first stop in the am & many times during the day. I also have a twitter account I opened in 2008 to follow (troll) John McCain. I very rarely tweet, probably less than 25 in the eight years I have had the account. The last tweet I sent was noting I had mailed my ballot in for Hillary. I do, however, follow twitter many times a day. You can choose whom you want to follow. It is very informative & sometimes downright entertaining.

Welcome to DU.

I also do not tweet, Facebook, Snapchat, or whatever else they've invented for data mining.

That "child" has pushed most people over the edge.... fortunately for me, I've been past it for years.

This is a good site, and the lounge is full of love, if/and not proper crazy......

Welcome.....


one question in two parts:

Do you like cat pics and booze?

If so, you'll be right at home.

I dabble in those things. A little bit of FB, hardly any Twitter. Emails when warranted. I post quite a bit on this forum and a sports fan forum for my favorite team.

Get in, hang on, enjoy the ride.

I've signed up for Facebook only so that I can post to other blogs and newspapers etc.

And I just got a twitter account yesterday so that I can keep up with President Obama.

BTW: WELCOME to DU!

46. Welcome ThomThom5300

Come in for the General Discussion of course, but be sure to wander through the forums and groups - there are people who share your interests in various areas.

Because we all occasionally need to take a sanity break from the anger and despair

Peace

45. Hello and welcome

I know how you feel, DU has become a much needed pressure release valve for me.

I lurked for a while during the Obama years, joined during the early primary season (June of 2015) and only had around 500 posts on Nov. 8th

Since then I've called my Reps, marched in protest and posted over 500 time here.

I guess the only positive thing that dude did was to "Unite the Country" even though I'm sure he didn't mean to unite it against him...

Peace

I just returned tonight after several years away. I can't find my login stuff and can't remember. Starting back at 1. This is my first post, this go-around (which sucks in a way).
