Why I'm not donating to DU this time.

It's not because of the people who belittle those of us who are disappointed with Obama's performance.

It's not because of the people who seem to be rooting for the President to fail, either.

It's just because I literally can't.

My electricity was shut off on the 10th, my 41st birthday. It took every penny we had in the bank and in our pockets just to get power back on, and then only for two weeks while we try to raise the rest of the money we need.

My husband Bryan started a new job this week, but won't see a penny for more than three weeks. We're nursing every last drop of gasoline we have left to get him to and from work. We don't have money for food and are rationing what we have in the pantry to get us through to that first paycheck.

So that's why I'm not donating to DU this time around. I wish I could. Don't take it as a vote of no confidence in the site.

Unlike you, it does not make me happy (assuming it is true). It does, however, beg the question: What will it take to wake these stupid, whining fucking maggots up to the fact that they have been taught the wrong shit, believe the wrong shit, and have voted for the wrong shit?

I can verify this - for like years. BSR is still family, though. Just not in the babysitting-your-kids-under-18 sense. :p

All these people over at the du, bragging how they donated a star for someone. Wouldn't their money be better spent going to Pakistan? Or some society promoting the rights of gay, minority homeless, environmentalist atheists?

If you were a man, you might get away with it -- with one arm left. :p

Except when their posting at 11 at night. Then their strangely quiet about it... :rolleyes:

Someone should ask Pabs how they can't afford food or gas, but can afford the internet. Or to hand out the address of the library that stays open till 10 at night so Bobbo can start posting more.

I am waiting till they start saying having high speed internet is a right. Pretty sure they have already said that but I bet in 20 years its one of their biggest issues.

You don't know Pabs...he's one of the most despicable faggot DUmmies in the whole lice infested place.

If he dies a painful death of AIDS, I'll buy a keg and have a two day party.

Would be an improvement from universal healthcare. At least the "right" to high speed internet doesnt fuck up my life.

there's a thread at DU now titled 'to wi-fi gypsies' and people are listing all sorts of places to get free wi-fi. there was one claim that some libraries leave their wi-fi on all night.

i think there probably are a good many people who take advantage of free wi-fi. i know that the homeless in my city use the library a lot because it's warm in winter, cool in summer, and provides shelter from rain and snow, in addition to books, newspapers, magazines, computers, and a snack room. only the snacks cost money.

i do not believe every sob story i read online but it stands to reason that many unemployed people continue using their laptops and someone else's wi-fi or use a library's computers. some could also be posting from a computer at a friend's or family member's home.
