How can I find a thread by the user's name here on DU?

Someone made a post about V.P. possibilities and I want to get back to it. I have their DU user name. How can I find this post?

I need some input from you guys....

I live in an apt. in North Redondo Beach, CA. We don't have air conditioning. You used to not need it but man have things changed. I'm going to HAVE to get some kind of an air-conditioner. I can't get a window unit (it's kind of a complicated situation). Fans don't work-I've tried every kind of fan you can think of. This is going to get urgent since I'm not working and it's already starting to get hot in L.A. The past few years (when we've had heat waves) I've stayed at a friend's who has a/c. I can't do that now because she's a cancer survivor with a compromised immune system. HELP!!!!! (I'm post-menopausal and I get so hot that it borders on dangerous)..

Do they sell some kind of stand-alone air-conditioners?

.Thank you

DU'ers, I need your input....

I'm going to be sending an email to some of my friends regarding suggestions about support in the upcoming elections.

Here's a list I've come up with so far:


Amy McGrath - Mitch McConnell/Kentucky
Sara Gideon - Susan Collins/Maine
Michael Franken - Joni Ernst/Iowa
Jaime Harrison - Lindsey Graham/South Carolina
John Hickenlooper - Corey Gardner/Colorado
Steven Bullock - Steve Daines/Montana
Mark Kelly- Arizona

House of Representatives:

Valerie Plame - New Mexico

I realize there may also be seats we currently hold that may in danger. I'd very much appreciate any feedback. (I had composed a lengthy post explaining why I'm doing this and all of dynamics but realized it wasn't necessary. Suffice it to say that I have good friends who are politically informed -but not as into it as I am - who have come to me in the past for suggestions and opinions regarding where their monetary contributions may best be used.

Thanks for any input...

About Upthevibe

I've been a member of DU since the very beginning....after that horrible fiasco - the sElection of 2000. My first user name was Lindsey, then I changed it to Nirvana555, and now it's Upthevibe. I had devices crash and I ended up having to change my user name. I've never been one to make a whole lot of original posts, but I consider myself a very active member in that I come to DU almost every day and read the wonderfully informative threads. I can't imagine what life would have been like over the past two decades without DU!
