  •  Saying Daily Kos is "all about" any one thing... (9+ / 0-)

    ...guarantees that whoever says it (whatever that one thing is) will be mistaken.

    •  Sort of like when we say that (0+ / 0-)

      Republicans are all about or Democrats are all about or politicians are all about or the media is all about . . .

      C'mon MB, this site is all about saying what everyone else is all about. And that's not a bad thing, all told. We all need a place to vent.

        ..."all about talking" had the meaning of "nothing but talking."

        FSM knows I have nothing against venting myself and enjoy many of the venting of others. But that's not what the site is all about. It's just one of the things.

          indeed what I (and everyone) else sees here, unless you count the yearly meetings-- which again, aren't accomplishing much re: progressive change.

          I get that you guys think we have fifty years to get this right.. but we don't.

          I guarantee you there were plenty of people in the British Empire who totally thought they were the shit and it was going to last forever; "The Sun Never Sets on the British Empire".

          Well???

    •  I think that's what I like best about this site (4+ / 0-)

      It is generally a progressive website, where I find at least generally like minded individuals. But who still have enough diversity to offer opportunities that make me think, and often learn.

      I like having such a wide range of topics to choose from. Obviously what is of paramount importance to someone else, may mean little at all to me.

      It's like minded enough to feel safe to voice my opinions, but varied enough to not feel like a total echo chamber.
