Same here, my friend.

It's an honor for sure.

Hello, ProudToBeLiberal!

Glad you're here in the Hillary Group! Wade on in - the water's fine! Let us work together on helping her go all the way to the Oval Office!

Couldn't agree more, with the deepest regret.

It is terribly sad, blue neen. I found my way here in early 2001. DU got me through bush/cheney. It got me through the first days after my mom died. I miss the way it was. People were a lot more civil to each other and there was an overriding sense that we were all in this together. Now - it's deteriorated so badly that I no longer feel at home here.

SUPERB rant, as usual, Nance. Needs to be said, read, and spread.

Yes! Positive Vibes Day!

May there be good feelings all around!

My sympathies, 1SBM.

It's never easy. Even when you expect it because of long and incurable ailments, or advanced age or impairment, or even if you weren't on good terms with each other. It's STILL not easy.

All my sympathies, my friend. Been there. Felt that. I like the way you put that, too - "my Mom has been called from this life." Very gentle and poetic. I suspect she'd like how you put that, also.

I'd guess it's far more than just one video.

Trump has generated loads of footage on the anti-Muslim theme alone. He's all over TV and he's generating libraries full of material for ISIS and other adversaries to use. LOADS of it. Clip after clip after clip, soundbite after soundbite after soundbite, and if you missed it, it'll repeat at the top of the next hour. ISIS is quite media-savvy. They'd have to be living around the clock with blinders on and earplugs in, and inside a capsule about 10,000 feet underwater NOT to see all the media attention Trump gets, or how often his offensive comments are replayed. No one can convince me there isn't a boatload of Trump video they're exploiting out there to recruit new ISIS followers and suicide bombers and other assorted terrorist wannabes. ISIS is a shrewd lot.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
