Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Apr 13, 2012, 07:09 AM

How far we have come: In 2008, I read at a post on DU,

They said- Hillary was a murder, who killed Vince Foster.
(It was not withdrawn)

At that point, I PM'ed Skinner and asked to 'Vaporized'.

No. I did not want one more of my footsteps down that muddy slope.
Skinner replied: 'OP has been on DU less than you'. OK?

OK? ..it's four years later,

I'm still here. Beacool; and a few other HRC supporters are still here too.

PTL, but truly, I can't think of a SoS, who could have done any better.

Congratulations Madame Secretary.

A million miles and you can still smile:-
(when the occasion demands it).

1. I image there were trolls back in 2008.

The Board gets infested during high profile cases and election times. Trolls are pungent critters.

4. She'd have been a great president.

But you're right, the 2008 DU environment was well beyond toxic. The HRC supporters kicked, excommunicated and alienated by the mob were productive members of the community.

5. Here is some proof of the Secretary of State's patient quiet diplomacy.

Burma was headed for another generation of isolation, and brutality.

Most people are not aware that Nobel Winner aung San Suu Kyl will be a member of parliment.

AFP - Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will take her seat in parliament for the first time on April 23, her party said on Monday, following her milestone election to political office.

The veteran dissident's National League for Democracy (NLD), which won 43 seats in April 1 by-elections, will be the main opposition force in a national parliament dominated by the military and its political allies.

NLD spokesman Nyan Win said the Nobel laureate would travel to the capital Naypyidaw by April 22 in time to attend a new session of the lower house the following day. Parliament has been in recess since March 23.

Suu Kyi's election to political office marks the latest sweeping change in the country formerly known as Burma after decades of outright military rule ended last year.
