Not sure what took me so long to get here...
« on: July 11, 2015, 04:56:49 PM »
I've been reading DU for about a decade. The lunacy there is my guilty pleasure, I still cannot get my mind around some of those folks positions on current events. It's absolutely mind boggling.  How in the hell do we share air with some of these cretins?  I sometimes think I could probably reason with ISIS militants easier than some of the DU loons.

I've heard this place mentioned before at DU and finally decided to wander over to see if anyone else had figured out this randys1 tool.  Thankfully, I wasn't disappointed.

Thanks for having me!

Welcome.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

  • I'm right, you're wrong.

The best description of Democrat Underground (they really hate it when you call them that) was from imao.us over ten years ago.

I don't think there is a single blog out there I read that hasn't at least once linked to Democratic Underground's Forum. The place is like a train wreck of human thought; you just can't help but gawk at their twisted logic and wild-eyed conspiracy theories. I've even ended up becoming addicted to the site; anytime there is breaking news, I think, "I wonder what the nuts are saying about this," and head straight for DU. It's like a daily freak show. Yet, I've begun to tire of it, and I realized why. In the end, it's really just the same thing over and over. After careful analysis (two minutes thought), I think I broke down all the variance of opinion you'll ever see on DU and put into one imitated thread. They will often go on longer than this, but then it's a lot of the same posts being made over and over by other people.

Well, without further ado, here is the...

Welcome to the cave.
Glad to have you onboard.
Hope your stay is long and profitable.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

Welcome, Maverick!  And congratulations for getting to pass Go.
