Moses reflecting on 145,000 posts of nonsense..

Ok. Ill save you the trouble. Moses here decides its time to take a step back from what he calls his "originals posts", and help out in other ways. Also, he whines and cries about how Obama and Biden could do so much more (damage) had the idiot voters gave them a stronger congress.

 :old: On Approaching 145,000 Posts, I'm Going to Slow Way Down

I joined DU in November of 2008. President Obama had just been elected as President, and I was over the moon with excitement about the possibilities. We seemed to be on the verge of a sea change in the course of our nation's progress. I decided that I would bring my years of experience in Democratic politics and campaigning to a popular national discussion forum.

Despite my optimism, I arrived here, only to see some DUers attacking the newly elected President for not being good enough, not being progressive enough, and not something else enough. Even as he worked to help Americans obtain more affordable healthcare, he was attacked on this very website. One DUer famously called him a "POS used car salesman," for Pete's sake!

Worse, despite his popularity, we were never able to give him a large enough majority in Congress to do all he might have done. Still, I maintained my optimism and did my best to encourage actions that would lead to that majority in the future.

Barack Obama led the nation through two terms in office, constantly trying to get progressive programs through a reluctant Congress. We never gave him a fully supportive Congress. Instead, many of us complained about what he didn't accomplish, rather than praising him for what he did accomplish.

After two terms as President, he had to move on. In 2016, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton ran for the office. She had served the nation well and enthusiastically. She was opposed in 2016 by an insane buffoon of a man, Donald J. Trump. Surely she would defeat such a poor excuse for a presidential candidate.

It wasn't to be. Even here on DU, candidate Clinton was attacked for whatever reasons could be mustered. I was dismayed through that entire campaign process. How could we attack a qualified, progressive woman who ran as a Democrat, when the Republican opponent was such an obviously unhinged, dangerous man? But we did. I believed that US voters would come through on election day, nevertheless, and elect Hillary Clinton. After all, so much was at stake, including several potential Supreme Court justices.

That was not to be, either. Enough disgruntled "progressives" refused to vote for candidate Clinton that three states were lost. Just three states and by precious few votes. I knew a few people who voted for Jill Stein, myself. Their reason? "I just don't like Hillary." Donald J. Trump was inaugurated in January. The Supreme Court shifted to a strong, conservative majority, and that spelled the end of Roe v. Wade, as we had been warned.

In 2020, we came to our senses and elected Joe Biden as President. However, we failed, once again, to give him a strong majority in Congress. Indeed, we lost our majority in the House in 2022, if only by a small, 4-vote margin. Despite that, President Biden has managed to accomplish much. Surely we would reward his success by working tirelessly to regain our congressional majority and magnify it. Right? Nope.

Instead, we now begin to complain about President Biden and declare him to be too old to run again. We appear ready to sever our collective nose once again to spite our collective face. Not only could we lose the presidency in 2024, we could also lose both houses of Congress.

All because some of us are unable to accept anything less than perfection. We risk losing everything for some vague expectation that we can have a perfect government. How could we be so stupid, again and again?

So, I will continue to log in on DU, as I have since 2008. I have a permanent tab open on it in my web browser. However, I will not be posting original posts here very often. I'm shifting my focus onto other ways I can try to influence things. I am tired, at the age of 77 years. I remain hopeful, but am also doubtful, unfortunately. It has not been a great 14 years. Nope.

Good luck to all of us! Good luck to the United States of America!

Oh please dont. We have so much more mockery to make of you.  :naughty:

Oh Grooooooaaaan.  Look at that impenetrable wall of words.  Same as it always was, 145,000 freaking posts later, and it's still the same.  Just a hard slog of physical labor to even work up the head of steam to consider reading it.

145,000 posts, that's disgusting. Get a life already Rock Head.

I'm already betting that he won't curtail his posting at all. Promises like that never tend to work out, and clearly he/she/it has no posting discipline with that obscene total of posts.

Oh believe me. It was a challenge. I had to freshen up my cup of coffee. Twice.  :p

Doing the math, it comes out to around 26 posts per day. Every day. For 15 years. Let that sink in.

Not just 26 posts per day, but 26 500-1000 word essays per day.  His combined DU posts would eclipse Tolstoy's works by several orders of magnitude.  And in all those words he rarely came close to posting a cogent thought.

That is about as concise a desciption of Rockhead as I've ever seen. Of course, that also describes about 90% of the rest of inmates of Skinner's Island of Misfit ****-ups.

Once upon a time, I lived in Minnesota. Once upon a time, Minnesota was a nice place to live.

People like rock-head made it a sucky, expensive, nanny-state place to live.

Just did some quick math on my own account here, and I've been posting here for just over 15 years, and I don't even average 26 posts per week. In fact, I doubt I've ever made 26 posts in a single day here.

True.  Its money talks and its daring bravado against the absolute dimships is air as fresh as anal fresh release.

DFW is the name dropping champ.  Brooklynite likes to drop the titles, as in the "chairman of the NYC democratic party, we had lunch yesterday."  Blah blah blah. 

Looks like in my 15 years here, I have averaged 3 per day.  Most of mine are one or two liners.  I don't like to waste people's time.

Nance Greggs is another one with her wall of words.  I never, ever read her.  Her posts are pure bitch poison.
