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

Ukraine had nukes and gave them up

Some significant history that fell down the rabbit hole. Good lesson for other countries - don't give up your nukes and don't expect Russia to keep it's word ON ANYTHING!

My first email to Bartcop was December 2008.

Thought I joined both Bartcop and DU early 2000's. I'm probably wrong on the date, as I started to pay attention to what DC was doing some time after Bush v. Gore SC partisan ruling. So I think it was DU early 2000's and Bartcop 2008. I emailed Terry now and then and he responded to every single email and even published maybe two of my screeds. I think he died 10 or 15 years ago, a shame for all lefties and all of humanity.

I think DU did some kind of reset 19 to 21 years ago, as my current profile says I joined 2004. Whatever. 2004 is something I'm proud of, so I'm good with all that.

I joined in my late 40's and now I'm 68. Thinking about all the time that has past since the start of this century is eerie and unsettling.

I am a lifelong Dem, but I never had to worry about DC until late 80's, when I finally started to understand what a monster Reagan was.

And the current SC is a hell of a lot more un-American and anti-Constitution than it was back then. And the electoral college is stunningly anti-democracy, yet we still abide by it. At least the 2022 election almost drove a stake completely through authoritarian Republicanism. When all the wonderful laws Dems passed in the last two years start to kick in, in 2023, it will be a natural fact Dems care for middle class and lower class a hell of a lot more than Republicans, who only serve the millionaires and above.
