Don't know about the number of subscribers, but DU certaintly has nowhere near the posting volume of FR. I read both on a regular basis, DU for some comic relief and to see what the left is up to. I don't have an account at DU and have never posted there, I just read what they're up to.

Anyway, there a few long threads at DU. Seeing over 100 is a rarity, about as rare as a 500 thread post here. And there seem to be many fewer threads as well.

In terms of pure navigation, I sort of like the way DU has the front page where you pick your subtopic. But I really like FR's method of putting all posts in chronological order. DU puts them in a threaded order. This makes it really difficult to do "live" threads like election returns, world series game chat, etc. And here at FR, most people quote the sentence or two they're referring to when they reply, whereas at DU, it's hard to figure out where one subthread stops and the next one starts.

Of course, what many DUers write is just plain nuts. This woman is an extreme example, though, even for DU.

Your list of Democrat quotes is a represtation of an ordinary chat at most left wing sites. Maybe it's the left wing self destructive lifestyle that makes them crave the death of others.

It's just that the quicker they can destroy the existing system, the quicker than can get on with building Utopia.

I agree...

If anyone were to look close enough they'd see that it's this type of anti-American leftist attitude that are doing as much harm as any foreign enemy. They are using the Constitution just in such a way to undermine the good that this country was based upon.

They boast 30,000 subscribers? Hogwash, lies, and bulls**t!

Half of those are freepers, lurking.

It's a dirty job...

They took the page down?! Isn't that censorship?

I remember one from election night 2000 over there at DU, titled "What I spewed tonight." The guy sounded like he was sitting in a dark corner, preparing himself to perform a Columbine-style massacre. Really sick stuff. That one got pulled quickly after some Freepers pointed it out. Someone must have sent it out over the net, because Hugh Hewitt (I think it was) read it on the air the next day.

It's true though, they are pretty fringe. I don't know any Democrats who think like some of the nuts over there. The DUmmies are more like anarchists.

Anyone who hates our troops enough to see them dead...

...would have been called inimici in late Republican Rome.

Your friends were amici.

Such factionalism tends to spell the death of the republican form of government - one can't make common cause with blood enemies.

Can you imagine if we had a mass unveiling? They're already paranoid. If we all came out at once, they'd have to be euthanized ....:)

Can you show the same plot for Free Republic, Rush's site, Boortz, and DU?

(Looks like it is plotted on a log scale and UPSIDE DOWN ---- So small sites are much higher than big ones! And the huge difference between a small site and a big one is trivialized!)

There are eight running for president who think like that.... And one liar who already ran using politics like that.

And a Senator from NY who wants to run who thinks like that.

"LOL, how do you keep you sanity?"

By being the "Bullgoose Looney" and playing the inmates against each other.

Heheh the funny thing is I've got two accounts that are approaching their oh so valued 1000 plus status and they have no idea it is one guy who constantly gets the Greenies banging on the Democrats in some knock down drag out flame wars for his own perverse pleasure.

Bet the '58 year old broad' is also anti-gun. This is the typical hoplophobe personality, i.e., a sicko that harbors such vile hate that he/she is afraid of what they will do to others given the opportunity and then projects the feelings onto others.

Maybe she is the blond that stood in front of the Parents on October 25th. She seemed shocked and terribly offended that parents would counter protest.
 
I asked my son if he wanted to come home from Iraq witout finishing his job. His answer was that he would come home when Saddam's cold dead body was in the back of his bird.

Earlier today, DU had a thread entitled "Will you support the troops when they shoot their officers?".

It got many many replies and many of the posters agreed that they would. Many more still could not agree to support our troops at all. In the end the thread got pulled and I could not save it. It is a pity.

You think Osama bin Laden hates America? Not half as much as democrats do.

Surely you know by now that exposing yourself to Democratic Underpants can and usually does cause insanity. Stay away from that den of idiots, for your health.

I disagree. This is our true enemy. The jihadists hate America but not half as much as democrats do. I don't believe the average American would want to associate himself with dems if he knew this is how they are "among themselves". In order to understand and fight this evil, it is necessary to go over there in hip waders, haul up those slimy bastards out of their muck and slime and show the American public that this is the filthy heart of the modern democratic party.
