    I see MyDD is still infested with the hiltards.

  • Tried to respond to your comment on the "will this poster get banned" diary, but surprise surprise, that diary was deleted.

    But in reference to your post, Jerome really showed his true colors in the run up to the nomination, as well as his sour grapes afterwords. Which is fine, it's his blog, he can do what he wants. Just as I was free to stop visiting MyDD after it became Alegre's Home for the Disenchanted and Bitter©. I do stop in maybe once a month to look at the rec'd diaries, and as I said, it's evident the hypocrisy employed by the admins has not changed.

    Yep Jerome really showed his true colors, and his sour grapes. Which is fine, its his blog, he can do what he want. Just as I was free to stop visiting MyDD after it became Alegre's Home for the Disenchanted and Bitter©. I do stop in maybe once a month to look at the rec'd diaries, and as I said, I can see the hypocrisy employed by the admins has certainly not changed.

    Seriously, this is why I stopped visiting/posting at MyDD a loooooong time ago. I see nothing has changed.

  • I don't think anyone is giddy, at least not me. Cautious optimism is more like it.

    Either way, they guy is a much different than the self-righteous gung-ho self-proclaimed "warriors" we've seen in the past.

    And if he just "goes with the flow", then he'll go with Obama's flow, which is a stated policy of not prosecuting medical marijuana users and favoring treatment over incarceration.

  • Agreed. But it is a vast improvement over all previous Czars combined. Another good thing is that the new Czar is a believer in the scientifically-backed belief that treatment should be given to those charged with possession, rather than incarceration.

    Or, as the SOAD song goes:

    All Research and successful drug policy shows
    That treatment should be increased
    And law enforcement decreased
    While abolishing
    Mandatory!
    Minimum!
    Sentences!

    Until I came to my senses, I thought you were quoting IL Senator Paul Simon at first, and I was like, wow, he really had an eloquent way with words! lmao

  • Yes, I understand. I was just trying to be a lil facetious myself.

  • Plus there's been 15 Israeli deaths as a result of those rocket attacks... Compared to how many Palestinian deaths?

    Now I firmly believe Israel has a right to retaliate, I just think they are overdoing it.

    Isn't saying that sexism is the "mother" of all isms a sexist statement in and of itself? Why can't it be the "father" of all isms???  ;-)

  • What did Obama know and when did he know it?!?!? Right, kosno?

    I see you still haven't given up on the Primary Warz....lol

  • Happy New Year!!

  • on a comment on Woodward: Concern Troll over 5 years ago

    I understand your point, but face it, regardless of what frame any particular person prefers, the trad media was going to frame it as retribution either way.

    The last thing I want to do is what "Lieberman wants", but that's what it would have been seen as either way.

    My perspective is to let it play out and see what happens.

  • on a comment on Woodward: Concern Troll over 5 years ago

    Oh I agree, just was lazy in writing about all of Joe's poor qualities. But again, Obama decided to focus on unity and governing instead of retribution.

    Did I want Joe to lose his Homeland Security chair? Hell yeah. But there's something to be said for Obama when his decision is based on wanting to keep an additional ally, rather then create a new GOP senator.

    Obama has a LOT of political capital right now, and he did not want to wastefully spend any of it on the Lieberman affair, which is smart if you consider the effects that Lieberman losing his chair that would have resulted.

    Now Obama has an ally that the Repugs pretty much have to respect. and if Joe doesnt play ball, it's not like Obama and the Dems can't make him pay at any time they want to. Worse comes to worse, Obama can just dissolve the Homeland Security committee and replace it with a differently named committee that does the exact same thing, sans Lieberman.

    And Sore Loserman will get his due when he's up for reelection anyway.
