  •  Nah... I don't know.... (2+ / 0-)

    ...guess I'm getting old... I voted for "His Excellency" twice and would vote a third time if they overthrew the FDR clause...

    THAT BEING SAID... "His Excellency" has REALLY pissed me off over a BUNCH of things that he didn't do... but not nearly as much as GOP obstructionist/treasonists...

    I've found over the years that DKOS has been a fairly useful/civil place to ventilate... and when it's not I just walk away... I guess I've become much more comfortable with my intellectual and emotional convictions....

    Hope it gets that way for you!

      critical, time and again, often by the same perps, it is a tad upsetting. When they install a robot to NR folks on the basis of HRs, the existence of the thought police becomes downright scary and oppressive. There is not a lot of recourse when dealing with an automaton, you know.

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

      •  Frankly, I'm more worried about NSA Thought Police (2+ / 0-)

        ... and this is coming from somebody who just re-read "1984"... I can walk away from DKOS anytime, but it's a lot harder to walk away from my phone, email, and my own money and retirement savings and my online behavior... you are still 100 times more likely to be struck down by lightning than killed by a terrorist... "making us safer" is BS... and again, "HIS EXCELLENCY" just today, in essence, said that he ain't backing down...
