  •  The 2004 election.... (5+ / 0-)

    found me emotionally sick of W and all he represented, rabid on politics and a constant Huff Post follower.  During this time an aunt turned me onto BuzzFlash and Daily Kos. Everything changed when:

    1.  I became a statistic in the economic downturn; lots of spare time and a mortgage payment.

    2.  Huff Post merged with AOL and turned into some weird tabloid that I couldn't recognize anymore.

    3.  Air America was history and Al Franken was in congress.

    To me Daily Kos is a news source, a place where people have a lot more in common with my views than what corporate media produces, is a true COMMUNITY, a place where people care, even when we don't always agree.

    That spirit of community is what keeps me here, I feel as if there is a group of coworkers to have coffee with every day.

    COMMUNITY is the spirit of Kos, it is the most valuable part of Kos and I will be eternally grateful for cwyatthouston for giving me a subscription this year; my finances are shaky at best.
