About Me

Apparently if you don't care for Bernie Sanders or disagree with the incessant posts implying that all white people are racists you are not welcome on this site. Despite voting exclusively for Democrats for most of my life (I'm over 50 years old) I got relentlessly reported when I did not violate any rule simply because certain members did not like my viewpoint and wanted to censor me. There were a couple of the flags that I did deserve because I got so frustrated with being pig piled on when I stood up for what I honestly believe is right. My account was locked on February 26th. I emailed the administrators and have been ignored. Democrats cannot afford to alienate and silence people who vote for them. People disagree and that should be OK. The administrators need to pay closer attention to people who are serial post reporters. There ARE people on here who target people that disagree with them or accuse them of being trolls or right wingers and then get them banned. That is what happened to me. I'm not a troll or a conservative. I am a 50+ year old grandmother who is on the same side as everyone else on this site. It sure would be nice if the admins would actually review my account...it's been two months. If this how this site advocates for Democratic values and reaches out to voters...well, it's not doing a very dang good job.

How to help the Tampa Bay mosque set on fire this morning

Here is a link to the webpage of the mosque:

http://www.newtampamasjid.org/#home

There is a donate link on the page.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/24/us/tampa-mosque-arson-florida/ is the link to the story.

The church next door to the mosque is allowing the mosque to use their church for services until the mosque is open again.

Did anyone else see grandma Rose Mudd Perkins on CNN calling Mitch McConnell out?

That woman needs to run for office. Just my opinion...

Yes Trump is mentally ill and yes personality disorders ARE mental illnesses

As someone who has worked with people with personality disorders and who has a relative with BPD I find it extremely offensive and disgusting the way people on this site keep stigmatizing people with personality disorders. So, here are some facts...

Almost 6% of people have Borderline Personality Disorder. This disorder is most often caused by the person who has it being severely traumatized as a child. This can be sexual or physical abuse, severe neglect, abandonment, etc. This is also a very common in people who have endured serious trauma surrounding gender identity issues where they do not have adequate support.

Every time one of you on this site claims that personality disorders are not really mental illnesses you are implying that these illnesses are just defects in character because the person is bad or did something wrong.

So STOP trying to claim that pointing out that Trump has a mental illness in some way stigmatizes people who have mental illnesses while you turn right around and stigmatize others. People can be BOTH evil and bad while also having a mental illness. It happens all the time with sex offenders and serial killers.

Stop stigmatizing victims and survivors or trauma and abuse who have personality disorders. Those are mental illnesses, period. Disorders ARE illnesses. Mental disorder = Mental illness...same damn thing.


That. is. all

Am I the only one wondering when the Russian National Committee starts flying the Russian flag?

In light of all we have learned over the last week or so I have decided that any Republican who does not fight to save America is a Russian Agent, even if by default. In addition to being Russian loyalists they are incompetent.

Isn't it ironic how Republicans are crying about all the leaks now? They weren't crying when...

the leaks targeted Democrats.

That's what these douche puffs get...they don't seem so fond of leaks now, do they?

Every day the Republicans allow this insanity to continue hurts them in the long term

Normally the majority of Americans just go about their business and don't pay much attention to what is happening politically. That's NOT the case anymore. Because Trump is the absolute worst attention whore that ever walked the face of the planet, all of America is watching. They are watching Democrats fighting for the right thing, and they are watching Republicans make excuses for and going along with Trump.

The Republicans have been exposed for what they really are...and people FINALLY are seeing it. That is why you see them backing away and softening on some things...because the people are watching and calling them and telling them NO! This is going to really hurt the GOP in 2018.

Every day that the Republicans don't stop Trump is another day their reputation with America takes a serious hit.

If nothing else, the orange idiot got America's attention...and when people watch, Democrats win.

The one positive thing out of this fuster-cluck that is Trump and his GOP brown nosers is..

that their appalling behavior with the muslim ban and attacks on the environment, etc has offended many voters who either don't vote or who are more likely to vote for Republicans. These are voters that can be brought over to the Democratic side IF Democrats get their crap together and follow this 5 step plan:

1. ONLY run charismatic and engaging candidates who have the natural ability to connect and draw people in. No matter how good the message is...it's not going to win unless people hear it...so delivery matters.

2. Don't give up defending the more controversial liberal issues...but stop making them the major cornerstones or single focus. Prioritize the percentage of time used to talk things up based on the percentage of voters the issue impacts. This does NOT mean you don't defend transgender bathroom rights when the issue comes up. You fight for social justice relentlessly. You just don't need to use up a lot of campaign time and energy on those issues when they only apply to a very small portion of voters.

3. Don't be too radical in any way that would be punitive to large groups of people. Be open to listening to both sides. This does NOT mean you change your positions or go along with things you believe are wrong. It simply means that you hear the voters that are opposed out. Why do they feel the way they do? HEAR them. Reassure them. Listen to their concerns and come up with ideas to address them fairly without abandoning your values.

4. Show up in every last district in every last state...no matter how red it is. If you don't show up you don't get heard. You don't get heard the people you want to help don't hear what you have to offer. They don't hear what you have to offer then they can't make a truly educated choice that best suits their interests.

5. Stay UNITED. Lose the freaking purist attitude at the polls. You are never going to get a candidate you love everything about. Sometimes you MUST do your part for the greater good by uniting AGAINST something horrible. We all see the cost of not sucking it up and doing that this time. Hopefully a hard lesson has been learned and will never be repeated again in this generation.
