About Me

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!

What do you guys know about Don Winslow?

I think he's put out some effective videos, and he definitely has a presence on the twitter machine. He's tweeted more than a couple of times that he has damning (paraphrasing) information on Graham and others and talks about it coming out. I think in at least one tweet he mentioned October.

I know very little about him. Is he credible or is he full of it? I'd loved to hear feedback from well-informed DU'ers.

Thank you!

Why is there a pro-dt ad on du?

What the heck?

Which Senate Seats are currently

the most flippable? I have friends wanting to make donations.....(I went to DU's Kentucky forum and there's not a whole lot of activity. Does Amy McGrath have a chance to be McConnell)?

In any case, I'd be very appreciative for any feedback...

Thank you!

Hi DU'ers....I need some guidance....

I'll give bullet points regarding my situation (basically advice/input I'm looking for pertaining to my rights as a rental tenet in the Los Angeles area):

*I moved into this apt. almost seven years ago- It's two bedrooms, two bathrooms. I LOVE my space, the neighborhood, the area, etc.
*My current roommate is a lady who has lived in this apt. for about 20 years - The lease is in her name - I wasn't added to the lease at any time.
*One year ago, we added another roommate (we were able to turn the living room into semi-bedroom with room dividers -and of course charge this new roommate a lot less) because the rent has been steadily increasing.

In the past, the roommate who's name the lease is under could be very difficult about 15% of the time and okay about 85% of the time. Well, due to COVID19, I'm here a lot more than when I was working since we've been hunkering down since mid-March. So, being around her more means that the difficulty percentage has risen.

I have two good friends who are in property management and they both said that the roommate who's name the lease is under (the one who has been here for 20 years) has "illegally leased space to an unauthorized occupant" (me) on property in which she does not own. They said that this is a huge legal infraction (in the property management world) and if the property company/owners find out she had violated her agreement and she could easily be evicted (after COVID19) as well.

I wrote her a letter yesterday stating what my rights are (as least according to my property management friends) and that she has no power over me. Tonight, I overheard her speaking on the phone to a friend. She said that she had contacted a legal agency and they told her she could give me a 60 day notice. This lady has a lot of problems including not getting facts straight, borderline personality disorder, etc. I never really know what to believe.

In the meantime, It's REALLY hard in Los Angeles now to find a place to live! Plus, I'm getting ready to work for The Census and my assigned section is here in the area where I live. I realize at some point I'll probably need to move on but I REALLY don't want to move right now.

Can anyone give me any guidance, numbers to call, or even an attorney I could speak with regarding my rights! (I think a conversation with a lawyer would probably only be about a 15 minute call so I could probably afford it). I need to know if this lady has power over me while I'm here.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide....

Hi Du'ers... Does anyone out there know what the situation is on this race in Ohio's 4th district? I'm getting some information together regarding which seats are flippable..

I know nothing about her or this area. Thanks for any feedback.

I was just on CSPAN - Called in and spoke

with Wes Moore who's the guest on In-Depth today. He's just wonderful! I told him what documentaries I'm suggesting to friends to watch so they can have a better understanding of racism (with context)- (Jane Elliott's - blue eyed/brown eyed experiment, The Untold Story of Emmett Till, I Am Not Your Negro, and others). I wanted to ask about his ideas on reparations (which I feel MUST occur) but my time was up.....Anyway, if you guys can watch, so far it's excellent. He is a force of light! I don't know if he has any political aspirations......
