    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

    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
    May the FORCE be with you!
