    but if I do get banned here for even mentioning that we should be supporting people whom I view as our natural allies, then I don't belong here anyway.

    •  I'm certainly not suggesting you should be banned. (0+ / 0-)

      I just don't understand why you would hang out at a site dedicated to electing Democrats if "the Dems have cravenly, cowardly, and corruptedly (sic) moved with them and enabled them."  If I believed that I would be out of here in a minute.

      •  I only came here because I heard "better (3+ / 0-)

        democrats" as part of the formulation.  If it's really "only democrats," I'm probably not in the right place.  I'm happy to work for all sorts of democrats -- Warren, Baldwin, Grayson, Dean -- and fellow travelers -- Sanders.  

        In other cases . . . eh, well.

      •  See the other reply to this (0+ / 0-)

        I don't see all Democrats behaving reprehensibly. Just too many of them. I come here to participate in a healthy intellectual discussion and exchange of ideas. In case you haven't noticed, there's a lot more going on here that Democratic partisan politics. But as far as that goes, I come here to join in those who are working to wield whatever influence we can to elect "More and Better" Dems and to move the party--and our country--forward instead of backwards.

        •  That is a substantial modification of what you (0+ / 0-)

          said in your original comment.  Where Dems were worse than Republicans and "the Dems", not some Dems were craven, corrupt and cowardly which is just bull shit.

          •  How bout this , then: (0+ / 0-)

            "Some" Dems are craven, cowardly, corrupt, and none of the rest can call them on it.

            Prove me wrong, or bullshit on you.

            Thanks for playing.

            •  I don't agree. We could go through them one by (0+ / 0-)

              one but that probably would serve no purpose.  I simply don't believe that Al Franken, Sherrod Brown, Nancy Pelosi, Raul Grijalva and scores more are corrupt.  If I thought those people were corrupt, craven and cowardly I would not be a Democrat.  I would find a different party if I felt the way you do.  OK
