Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Aug 9, 2012, 12:51 AM

Wow. ABC/Yahoo story links to DU thread.

Followed Yahoo main page link to ABC/Yahoo story on NASA mohawk guy. and found a link within the article leads to a DU thread (a thread with few replies).

Sixth paragraph down, the word "meme" is a link, which leads to the DU post.

------------------

First came the online meme, the Tumblr and then the thousands of new followers to his @tweetsoutloud Twitter account, where he describes himself as "Flight director on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity mission. Exercise fiend. Mediocre shortstop."

1. DU is newsworthy.

At least when it comes to Internet memes according to Yahoo.

Cool find!

2. I think that is freaking fantastic

I Believe there are hundreds of thousands of people here on DU and we do our best to tell relevant stories. Some times we express an opinion that pisses other people off. That is a good thing.

Only by having one's beliefs challenged do I believe people grow and learn.

3. And we have to keep repeating it

 

Because we all know how steep the Teabillie learning curve is. It doesn't help that they have been hypnotized into Lemming trauma by Fox News.

Intelligent debate to stimulate new ideas and thinking?

You gotta be kidding me.

Nothing can penetrate the hatred for anything "Obama" these people have. These folks parrot Fox News and intellectual discourse is the furthest thing from their mind. They elect Congressmen that replicate their thinking which means.....no room for compromise from the standard Fox line.
