Check out these links to what real dems are doing this New Year's Eve --
"Live-Blogging Your Lame-Ass New Year's Eve"
"What to drink tonight" by "Ray Mota" OR
"I swear no oath to the Democratic Party" by "TeacherKen" OR
"NYT: As Many Soldiers killed in 2004 as in 2005; more wounded" by "MuleDriver"
NOTE: Daily Kos website is overloaded and maybe won't work for you, because it's bandwidth is inadequate. I recommend that Daily Kos users go to Indymedia!
UNDERSTAND that "Daily Kos" website can't even begin to compete with Portland Indymedia in any way, shape or form --
All I am saying is to check out Democrats as people, as your neighbors, your co-workers --
"the dems" -- it ain't what you think it is!
Happy New Year!
