About Me

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS

that term triggers me.

Because it was designed to be used as a pejorative towards the Democratic party.

My feelings were confirmed some time after the early 2000's Iraq invasion, by the great Keith Olbermann, in response to GWB using it. "....and it's DEM-O-CRA-TIC Party. Show some respect!":

So, for a while I used the term "republic party" every time IO have to refer to these grifters on internet social media.

It a efect in my moral character that I let myself "go low", but, geez, these people are " winning isn't everything, it's the only thing" so completely that they must be countered.

Cheating and bullying and lying is not what a major political party should stand for.

And this is just a start. I'll be fighting against American totalitarian fascsit police states until I die, or global warming ends our way of life as we know it and takes me with it.
