Got to take down all the Democrats. Pathetic isn't it?

2. Things that make one go "Hmmmmmm......"

There are days when this place reads like a snake pit in the sewer of a cesspool.

People will argue that its night time when the sun is shining.

And some genius is bound to chime it that in the polar regions, by gawsh, it could be.

3. I wouldn't consider that bashing... I would consider that a personal opinion...

 

What isn't tough enough for one person, might be too tough for another. I take opinions about candidates as such. Everyone is going to view their candidates differently. We go accusing each other of bashing just for having a differing opinion and soon everyone will be banned. Even my candidate has some traits I see as faults. Nobody is perfect.

8. Same for party leaders. I don't see them all on the same page either.

 

I think the lack of a unified voice is what's irritating most people. That's why there a so many "opinions" out there. I know Barr waited for the holiday weekend to release the report to screw with the leadership, and that's what they allowed him to do. Personally, I think they should have delayed their observance of the holiday until they read the report and came away with a unified statement on their path forward. Again, they have let the Republicans control the narrative. I guess we're just going to have to wait another week and listen to all these different views of our leaders and put up with the different views of their followers.

There is no "constant bashing" or any other kind Kilgore. People are discussing topics and if it is bashing the post gets pulled. Perhaps you went to JPR or a RW site and only thought it was DU.

I did not suggest you are a JPR person. I said that and the RW site as a joke to illustrate how ridiculous it was to say DU was bashing Democrats like those sites do. There are no personal attacks either. I'm serious - your posts are demonstrating that you are taking all of this way too seriously. That's not an insult but an invitation to find something else to do for at least a night, or a few days, for your own sake.

21. These are not personal attacks

I didn't order you to stop posting, just like no personal attacks were made. Someone disagreeing with you is not bashing or "repeated personal attacks" as you claim. You are obviously extremely upset, but that doesn't justify false accusations, which are just as wrong as bashing or personal attacks. Obviously you can post as much as you want, but I asked you to please step away from the keyboard, for your own sake.

I think that all parties need to simmer down with the accusations, and refrain from provoking.

This isn't the place or the time to be spoiling for a fight.

For your own sake...

10. Is Joy Reid a "basher"? Because if you watched any part of either of her shows

this weekend, you would realize that she's 100% on the "IMPEACHMENT NOW" train. I'm personally on the fence at the moment, but there are many well-respected people on OUR side that are feeling the need for it ASAP.

16. Make a decision on what

Joy Reid says? She bashed Gays in the recent past, almost lost her job at MSNBC. They finally brought her back on weekends.

No thanks.

But as for bashing Democrats I often wonder if the Russian bots are among us.

51. All I Can Say Is...

she was in for C. Hays last night and gave a huge amount of time for Rep. Talib to go on and on, and on about impeachment and didn't show the same respect for guests who tried to explain why not at this time. It was the first time I turned the channel on Joy and was very disappointed in her lack of understanding about this matter. And feeling the need now is one of the last arguments I would make for it. As Nancy has said and which has been repeated over and over, investigations first and then if the facts go there, then impeachment. But Joy keeps insisting Nancy said no flat out. Further, while Individual 1 has dropped in the polls, not even a plurality in this country currently favors impeachment. The case is yet to be made and the country needs to be brought along or we'll find ourselves with 6 more years of that criminal.

None of us are perfect. I learn more in life from my mistakes than my successes. I made one earlier where I wasn't clear i what I meant, and will always strive to be more clear when dealing with that subject.

Better to be corrected on an anonymous board than make a cock-up in real life!

It is another thing altogether to bash Democrats for not toeing an alleged line.

Some respect for those stepping up, and putting themselves out there, is in order. Some here have no respect.
