"Don't concentrate too much on Trump.  He is just a figurehead.  Instead concentrate on who "helped" Trump into power and why.  Knowledge is power, and the truth will set you mind free."

"Look for incumbent Republicans to decline to run in 2018.  That will be the litmus test on the effect of anti-alt-right activities.  We have to take back the legislature, and work at every level of government to change the…"

"We have to accept the responsibility for saving the United States' democracy.  Regardless of race or ethnicity, the US is the only home that we know.  And English (American) is the only language we speak and understand.  We…"

"Donald Trump is a toxin that threatens all the accomplishments of the Marshall Plan and democracy throughout the Western world.  The Right-wing like to talk about how ISIS is a threat to Western Civilization--but never about how a liar sitting…"

"You can't win a war--political or otherwise unless you can name the enemy.   In America the enemy is always the Dark Other--stealing your job or your security.  It is never the machine hiding in the background telling the…"

"When the Trump presidency shakes out, you know who will get the blame.  After the misery is will cause, perhaps the Neocons will not get off scot-free this time."

"America has so much to offer.  That is why we must fight internally so that it will not be destroyed by those who don't believe in Climate Change.  The war in the Middle East is nothing in comparison to this fight. Beautiful pictures…"

"Be aware that Donald Trump thinks like a colonizer/imperialist when it comes to dealing with China or any leader from the Third World.  China's president is not fool.  And remember Syria was bombed to impress what he intends to do to…"

Birdinhand commented on mary gravitt's blog post THE RED FLAG ASKS: IS DONALD TRUMP INSANE
"I sure wouldn't diagnose mental illness, not that it matters if I did. Mentally ill people more often than not have scruples and feel bad when they do bad. I don't think he ever feels bad. Mr. Roe, the most current DSM-5 includes NPD."

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!

Feel free to delete this comment.
