Not everyone has what it takes to withstand the physical and mental anguish of posting on the underground. Unlike other blogs and discussion boards, DU is for Democrats and like-minded independents only. That is the reason it is so passionate at times - it a fight amongst family. And no one fights with as much passion and anger as our own family.

In the last few days, we have seen a few people decide they cannot take it here. They say why they are leaving. Most of them have been here a short time. Those that have been here for a longer time understand that we have these squabbles and battles from time to time. It is no place for the faint-hearted.

If they gave medals for everytime someone has been wounded by words or the the ideas of others or the actions of the weakest within our own Party, I would have a chest full of medals... But we stay because, in some undefinable way, we think we are making a difference. Maybe we are and maybe we aren't, but we continue to fight. Not everyone has what it takes to be a member of the DemocraticUnderground.

Not everyone has what it takes to be a member of the DemocraticUnderground? Yeah, most people have a double digit IQ :rolleyes:

This coming from the pansies that give everyone trophies, and they don't keep score cause the don't wanna hurt anyones feeling. How absurdly arrogant. I'm X-Army, and earned everyone of my medals. 2ARCOMS,4AAMS, CMB. I got mine as a medic while people were shooting at me.

You were a medic? Awesome! I met with an army recruiter once, but since I'm a woman I was told I couldn't be a medic, so I decided against it.

11. Well, the expertise in the use of profantity is similar.
Other than that, I see little resemblance. Although, there are some wannabee D.I.'s who want to instill discipline with loyalty oaths.

That sucks, I would have loved to do it. I'm an EMT-basic, but I'm going for my paramedic certification soon. Thanks for your service!

They compare themselves to the very Marines that they dismiss as 'Fascist mercenaries.' What a bunch of dickheads.

Actually, I was thinking of a Lord of the Flies analogy, but there's something appealing about diaper pails in this context. :)

Back in it's day Malloys board was much better than DU. It's slipped alot and doesn't seem to have the participation anymore but I enjoyed posting there.

They had a good mix of hard-core nut cases and moderate Dems. And they let us eeeeevil ReThugs post there. There are a lot of us here on CU that posted on Malloys. I'd still go back there but my account went inactive and I forgot the old password. :D

So they are comparing themselves to the Marine Cops now.

Is this the same military that they say is full of killers and brainwashed loosers? Is this the same military that they say guns down millions of innocent civilians? So I guess that accepting gays and lesbians is out now too.

While I did not join the Marines, I was a Navy Coprsman for 22 years and spent more time in cammies than bellbottoms, I will say that a PVT fresh off the drill field has more morals and self esteem than that collection of social misfits.

Why don't they compare themselves to the republican guard. They supress freedom, run rampent over the population, control thought, the press and freedom of expression. That is more like the dump than Uncle Sams finest! Semper FI
