  1. just when DD is gaining its voice, it’s closing.

    I blame no one. I’m glad that this forum was available during its time.  Of course, I thank buhdy and the awesome admins.

    Did you know that if you type “buhdy” into google search it suggests “buhdydharma” as the only suggestion?

    We may be a nursery room, but so be it.

  2. Could be a steamroller – I am envisioning an out of control snowball.

    Next up to bat is Spain – which will most likely take out the EU, if not the IMF.

    At some point (most likely in Europe – I don’t see it in the U.S.) Some brave people will truly stand-up to the oligarchy and say NO MORE.  Historically, that’s what happens when people have nothing left to lose.

    re: Docudharma

    It is truly my favorite site on the net. I learn from everyone and am very grateful to  buhdy for providing a space where we can connect.

    At the same time, I respect Buhdy’s decision and continue to be appreciative  that all of our paths intersected here for whatever amount of time is allowed.

  3. … “truckle” … now there’s a word I don’t hear very often … if ever!
