Always good to get a reality check now and then to help put things back in perspective.

if you feel the need because maybe the postings here have gotten to you for one reason or another, take a second and go over to DU and browse their latest threads awhile. You'll see some real weird and strange over there, that makes any problems/issues you've got here, a lot smaller.

"Weird and strange"?

Well, they are a pack of raving moonbats on drugs over there from what I am told.

I’ve been; they’re nuttier than nutty. And I always feel like Mike Rowe when I go. It leaves me feeling dirty.

Out of curiosity, I checked out DU once, and never went back. The place has a very creepy feel. Sort of like a hoarder’s house, if you’ve ever been in one. I mean, the place made my skin crawl. Never again.

I have a short memory ... so sometimes I post here and a poster gets all annoyed at me.

Sometimes I post back .... sometimes not.

Sometimes it gets a little heated ... but only, like Sterno level.

From the looney left blog courtesy of DU (it appears we have lurkers from DU)

“From a rightwing blog courtesy of the freerepublic:

Earlier this evening in the Third Presidential Debate Mitt Romney raised legitimate concerns about the current and shrinking size of the United States Navy. The President responded snarkily by saying that size does not matter because we have these these “things” called Carriers that “planes can land on” and these “things” that go underwater.

This pathetic attempt at rebuttal by Obama is quite simple. The first submarine commissioned by the United States Navy was “USS Holland (SS-1)” on October 12, 1900.

The first Aircraft Carrier commissioned by the United States Navy was the USS Langley (CV-1) on March 20, 1922.

Exactly how does the existence of Aircraft Carriers and submarines in a Modern American Navy nullify Mitt Romney’s just concerns about the size of the Navy? Obama spoke about both as if they were some new fangled advances in naval warfare. The existence of carriers in our fleet justifies its reduction even though they have been an integral part of our navy for 112 and 87 years respectively? I guess in Obama’s world Jimmy Doolittle was bombing Tokyo with ELECTRONIC b-25 Mitchell bombers. How can he defend shrinking a navy whose history he is wholly ignorant?


So there ya go.
Obama didn’t go into a detailed history of the Navy so his argument is totally null and void.

Damn these right wingers are clever aren’t they?
I wish they’d stop drooling all over the floor.”

It’s better to pass on viewing some excrement than it is to view what comes out after you see it.

About 10 years ago I registered at DU and got “tombstoned” in less than 2 hours.
I can’t even say it was fun while it lasted. I took a long hot shower and never went back.
It’s a site strictly for the semi-retarded.

DU sounds like a bunch of juveniles who have just discovered that they can cuss. So, every other word is an obscene cuss word; typed on their laptops while lying on their beds in their parents’ basements, looking up at an old Obama poster on the wall that covers the old John Edwards poster they just didn’t have the heart to remove . . . .

Delusions Unlimited. I haven’t been there today & haven’t gotten to see the debate yet. A couple of days ago, it looked like a few of them were trying to sneak up on reality. Or they were- until the others started beating the crap out of them. SSDD

It is only available in small doses. Won’t be here long.

Been here 14 years. No longer what I came here for.

I don’t go over there much....maybe once a quarter. They don’t post nearly as much as we do. I will take a look on election night though. It should be quite fun seeing them go crazy.

I love that. That is really funny. A lot of work to get all those in one place. I think every FREEPER needs to see this for a stress reliever especially if needed the next two weeks.
