    So I just browsed over to DU for the very first time a few minutes ago. Wow. Just wow.

    I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like it. The hate these people spew is disgusting and they are not one but ashamed to say that they want us all dead.

    There is definitely some strong kool aid and mental disorders of the most profound variety over there.

    I thought about sticking around to troll but just couldn't stomach it. Why bother trolling with facts and logic anyway? It would be like playing chess with a pigeon: as soon as they realize they are losing they knock over all the pieces, crap all over the board and fly away in denial.

    There truly is no hope for these folks.

    And they feel exactly the same about us. We are a divided country. Unfortunately there are just as many on our side trying to use the force of government to get their way. Planning to spend recklessly and without thought of our financial future. Hopefully Trump gets the right people in place and runs this place like a successful business.

    Some of the hate spewed by our side has truly been shameful also the last 8 years.

    Anyone who doesn't recognize the president as legitimate to me is unpatriotic. Whether it's the never Trump or the Trumps an illegitimate president or the birther movement its all despicable. The Democrat senators who lampooned Trump for saying he may not accept the election results now refusing to recognize the results as legitimate now that Trump won is ridiculous. The special snowflakes violently protesting in DC right now should have their teeth kicked in.

    I have a lot of fun reading there.

    Yes, the "Wow. Just wow." factor is very high.

    Why would you want to read garbage like that? Life is too short for left wing nonsense.

    I go there every once in a while. I try and see what they are thinking.

    I can't. Everything posted there is from an alternate universe that doesn't make sense. There is no logic.

    I've tried talking to die hard liberals. There is nothing to discuss. It's like trying to carry on a conversation with a rabid dog.

    The thought process (or,lack thereof) is totally different. We don't speak the same language and, their brain is damaged.

    They are intellectually bankrupt. They only feel and they refuse to consider logic. It's fascinating.

    Read a bit. Holy hell they're living in some dream world.....nothing to do with reality.

    And I'd guess 70 of the posters over there are lesbian females.

    They're heavily moderated over there and delete posts and drop the ban hammer quick. That's why you don't find any good troll threads. It's not worth taking the time to sign up.

    ETA: Not just trolling either, they strike down well thought, respectful difference of opinion too.

    Read the TOS, it's pretty disgusting. It's a complete echo chamber. They actively delete posts and ban people who don't openly support the Democrat party line, or who do support anything Republican.

    Liberals suck. Don't waste your time with them.
    You can have a more intelligent conversation with a door knob.

    it's not often I do a self-inflicted jimmies rustling session, but every once in a while I'll get a few drinks in me and hop on city data forums. it's full of ********. the collective non-intelligence there is SUPER high. there are 2 forums, Alaska and "Rural living" that are not ful of conceited, arrogant, condescending users. Boy, the like 2 threads started in the hawaii forum about guns were PRICELESS. dude was moving and wanted to bring his stuff. all the replies were "MAYBE UD BE BETTER OFF IN MISSISSIPPI, DONT MOVE TO HAWAII AND BRING YOUR DEATH DEVICES WITH YOU TO PARADISE. YOURE NOT WELCOME!!!!"
    also the amount of cancer spreading liberals is disturbing, as noted in the countless threads titled "best small liberal hippie town in rural SC" and things like that... like, dude are you kidding me??
