Please tell us a little about yourself.

I came to Dallas from Austin (best city in Tx), I have 2 grown kids who live here, raised both of them to be liberals, I design & make jewelry, have a small jewelry business w/my daughter, being a teacher in this area maked it difficult to speak w/o getting into a fist fight. I lived in Houston most of my life, lived in Tampa, Austin, short time on Long Island, NY. Traveled some, Europe, Africa. Degrees in Psy/Soc and Secondary Education

Why are you joining this group?

I am a democrat to the bone, my daddy was a union man and a die-hard democrat. I have a brother who named his son Demmy(short for democrat). I need others who think a little like me, I love my old friends from school, but their views are so different from mine, made one cry because I was trashing George W. Its hard to keep my mouth shut, so if I get too wound up just tell me to shut up

This group is for TRUE liberals or progressives. Does that describe you?

That is a pretty good discription, when I was in the 5th grade, my daddy told me when I got to school I should kick anyone's butt who was wearing a "I LIKE IKE" button. So I tried, but everyone was bigger than me, so I wound up getting my butt kicked. But I am still fighting.


I am Marty Blakey, retired teacher, life long democrat. I WOULD RATHER BE DEAD, IN A DITCH, IN THE DARK, THAN BE A REPUBLICAN.
