Happy Valentine's Day to all my DU friends!

I hope this is an appropriate forum for this, forgive me if it isn't.

And THANK YOU to whoever gave me the hearts!

I think I have a few hearts left to give, if there's anyone who hasn't received one.

Treasury financial crimes unit collected SARs on Maria Butina PLUS ...

I can confirm now that last yr Treasury"s financial crimes unit collected voluminous suspicious activity reports from banks on Maria Butina, Alexander Torshin, Paul Erickson, Bridges LLC & Investing With Dignity

The SARs were shared w/FBI, Mueller, SSCI



Not sure where to post this ... my mom just died.

I wasn't able to get there to be with her in the end. I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life...

When I was sick & suffering she was always there for me.

In the end, when she was sick & suffering, I wasn't there for her.


That's about all I can say right now ...

THANK YOU for the heart! It cheered me up.

I'm in an airport on my way home from my mother-in-law's funeral. I ended up flying back & forth over the past month, watching her go downhill in the hospital & then wither away at home.

The heart was a nice surprise ... so thank you.

I'm back, SO GLAD to finally see DU back.

It's been hell here, trying to find a way forward.

We need to defend our country,... this will be a difficult 4 years.

Checking in from Merritt Island FL

Thankfully only minor damage on MI. We evacuated to Gainesville but a neighbor who stayed let us know our wood fences are gone (I expected that, they were old & needed to be replaced, I guess demo is done for me) & power is back on already (power was only off about 12 hours).

A friend in Cocoa Beach said he never even lost power.

We got lucky, the storm weakened a little & stayed about 10 miles offshore. It could have been worse.

We should be home on Sunday, hopefully we didn't lose shingles & have roof leaks, I put tarps over the important stuff in the house just in case (studio equipment & the bed - all it takes is a small roof leak to soak your mattress & that sucks). I'm hoping for the best!

Hi! I just contributed $100 to HRC (I think/hope) & I'm not sure about what I saw on the web page...

Everything seemed to go fine until I clicked the last button to make the donation (I entered my name, address, credit card info) then I got a screen that wouldn't allow me to see the details of my donation or print any kind of receipt. I'm looking at "https://www.hillaryclinton.com/donate/" but I know URLs can be "spoofed."

I saved a couple screenshots to my local drive, I'll see if I can embed them ...

OK wonderful, I can't seem to paste screenshots into this message. Suggestions on pasting a jpg into a DU msg?

My starting point was "https://www.hillaryclinton.com/donate/" which seems valid, but after I entered all my info (including credit card details) it's disturbing that I can't get a receipt showing the details of my contribution. I'm wondering if I just got ripped off (in which case I'll block the charge) or if this is just a website #fail.

How do we get rid of DWS?

Seriously. I confess relative ignorance on this issue. I don't know how the head of the DNS gets appointed, or booted. How do we do it? I've had enough.

I don't want to debate whether it should be done, that's another discussion, what I want feedback on is HOW it can be done.

Thank you.

First time I've ever done this. Why does my view look like this:

I'm going to try & insert a pic ...

GOP election win: A simple message for a simple people

Hello DU. I'm back.

This is my first OP in a loooong time. I was active during the GW Bush regime, here, on Truthout, MoveOn, etc. I even started my own web site ("blogs" didn't exist back then) so I could write about Bush/Cheney, the PNAC, & do my best to expose their crimes.

When Obama got elected it seemed like America (or the majority of it) had come to its senses & realized it's not a good idea to have morans & criminals running the country. I have enjoyed 6 years of relative happiness, becoming reacquainted with something called "free time" instead of spending most every evening & weekend on the computer, tracking the actions of a corrupt government & writing about their evil deeds.

Then Tuesday happened.

Shit. I mean really, shit. Shit f$%king shit.

So, it's time to get back to the computer. Time to watch these bastards like a hawk. Time to expose every damn thing they do that hurts America, every single lie, & rain as much hellfire as I can down upon them when they do.

They'll take this country when they pry it from my cold dead f$%king hands.

I'm pissed at the Dems for the way they campaigned. There was so much good to talk about (economy, jobs, deficit, etc), but they rarely did. The Repubs spent six years hate-mongering Obama, then made the election all about Obama. And the Dems allowed it to happen, instead of making the election about Dem ISSUES & POLICIES, which the American people overwhelmingly support.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Dem politicians, I'd like to spank you & rub your noses in your campaigns ... because they were shit. Don't you EVER do that again. Those of you who ran away from President Obama like cockroaches from the light, who allowed the REPUBLICANS to define the terms of the election instead of YOU, you betrayed me & everyone else who voted for our President ... F$%k you. No ... F$%K YOU!!!

And now you see the result. I'm left to once again clean up the stinking mess you made on the floor. I hope you realize this is about a lot more than just stains on the carpet & a foul odor, this is about OUR COUNTRY! This is about OUR FUTURE! This is about the triumph of science over stupidity, compassion over hate, knowledge over ignorance, & the voice of "We the People" over the donations of the wealthy 1%.

If these bastards get their way & continue ignoring climate change they just might take our planet to the point of no return ... runaway, catastrophic, global warming ... killing damn near everything on it in the process.

In other words ... THIS F$%KING MATTERS!!!

I'll say that again in case you missed it the first time: THIS F$%KING MATTERS!!!

Read that as many times as required for it to sink in.

This election shows exactly why, after decades of being a proudly registered Democrat, when I moved to a new state a couple years ago I registered as an Independent. I just didn't feel like you Dem politicians were being effective as a party, not something I was proud to be a part of. And now ... well ... do you think I'm eager to rush out & change my registration back to Dem? No, don't think so.

For the love of god Dems PLEASE learn from this election & do a HELL of a lot better in 2016. I know you have it in you somewhere, just find it & bring it out. It might require a change in leadership, I don't know, but I do know it damn sure requires a change in campaign strategy. Figure it out & give me a reason, after the 2016 election, to proudly & enthusiastically change my registration back to Democratic. Please, do that for me. Do it for America.

Whew. I feel better getting all that off my chest. And now, the original reason I started this post, this article about the election results. I think this statement about the GOPs win sums it up well:

“It was a simple message for a simple people — screw Obama,” Maher said. “And it worked. Because none of the Democrats came out for Obama.”
