  • Discussionist.com by Skinner

    05/14/2014 1:19:01 PM PDT · by chesley · 21 replies
    Skinner has created a new website, discussionist.com, that is supposed to be open to all, unlike DU. Civility, or the lack thereof, is the criterion for hiding a post, not political position. I just joined up so I don't know about the criterion for banning, if any. At any rate, I hadn't been on for 30 seconds before I was invited to join a jury. I voted to left the post stay, but was outvoted 5-2. Anyway, when you're caught up on the discussions here, maybe you might like to introduce some logic and facts into the discussions over there....
  • Warrantless: Police raid wrong house (76 yr old stroke victim)

    There are few people less likely to sell drugs than Fred Skinner. The 76-year-old lives alone on Mc Neeley Road in Victory, getting by with help from neighbors. Much of his home has been quietly abandoned because he can’t get up and down the stairs; his son, also named Fred Skinner, said his mind “goes in and out.” Since suffering a stroke last July, he speaks haltingly, sleeps with an oxygen tank and has a pacemaker in his chest. Skinner doesn’t hear as well as he used to, but there was no missing the pair of crashes he heard late...

    "This time FOR SURE!" Bullwinkle would exclaim to Rocky, as ONCE AGAIN he tries to pull a rabbit out of his hat. But of course, once again he would fail. Such is life for Head DUmmie Skinner (David Allen), Assistant Head DUmmie EarlG (Dave Allsopp), and Minor Flunkie DUmmie Elad (Brian Leitner), as they try to enforce rules for their insane asylum. They are now up to version 47.0, I think, as we see here in this THREAD, "An important announcement about the DU rules, and how we enforce them." Skinner's ineffectual attempts at creating order out of chaos...

    Head DUmmie Skinner goes for months on end running DUmmieland like an absentee landlord. Inevitably, chaos ensues, the inmates get out of hand, they're at each other's throats, and so Skinner feels compelled to drop in and announce that FROM NOW ON, EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT! But true to Skinner's indecisive and inconsistent nature, and true to the nature of DUmmies as DUmmies, before long the inmates are running the asylum again. And so it goes. But that's what we love about the place! Skins's Island is our DUmmie Ant Farm, providing us with HOURS of endless...
  • D.U. Administrator Posts Absurdly Detailed Rules to Micromanage Dissent

    The leftwing blogosphere has a big problem: dissent. Last week we saw Keith Olbermann leaving the Daily Kos because he was attacked there for mildly criticizing Barack Obama. And this week, the administrator of the Democratic Underground, David Allen aka Skinner, was forced to deal with a recent wave of purges (tombstoning). One reason was due to simple liberal crackup temper tantrums among the DUers as happened when their most prominent member, William Rivers Pitt of Karl Rove indictment hoax fame, was tombstoned last month for threatening physical violence upon a fellow DUer who turned out to be a homeless...

The FUnniest thing about these rules is that Skinner is DEAD SERIOUS and yet it comes off as completely hilarious in its utter obsessiveness as you can see in his THREAD, "Democratic Underground is changing.

DUmmie Administrator EarlG EXPLAINS: For the record Last night Will Pitt repeatedly threatened another member with physical violence. After the moderators deleted those messages he sent the threats again to the member via private message, during which he challenged the member to report his behavior to the moderators, implying that he would not be held accountable for his actions. We don't enjoy banning people, particularly people who have been here a long time. WilliamPitt left us absolutely no choice in this matter. This...

    Liberal commentator Nancy Skinner conceded there is one issue the right is right on - the value-added tax (VAT) is an absurd idea. Skinner who is a regular guest on the Fox Business Network, stated April 7 that the VAT will do absolutely nothing to help the ailing economy, concurring with the "Bulls and Bears" panel. "Everybody, you're going to be surprised: I finally found a tax I don't like, and it's this VAT tax!" Skinner exclaimed. "Here's why - it doesn't produce any behavioral changes - it's hidden as Gerri Willis said. What you want in a tax is...

    The Department of Homeland Security has many roles. Two of its most important are coordinating the 22 federal agencies that make up the department ensuring coordination and cooperation and of course terrorism prevention. According to Richard L. Skinner, the Inspector General charged with monitoring the Department of Homeland Security, the National Operations Center of the DHS is unable to do its job, and the DHS spends too much time on disaster management and not enough about terrorism prevention Skinner reports that the National Operations Center, in fact, functions largely in name only, and current operations apparently have diminished its ability...

    The civil war now going on among the Democrats is also being reflected in DUmmieland itself. And it is BRUTAL. How brutal? How about to the extent that Head DUmmie Skinner has SICCED his lawyers on Ben Burch's DEMOCRAT WARRIOR forum because he thinks one of the posters there MIGHT have been a former DUmmie moderator telling forbidden secrets out of class. You can see a redacted letter sent out by Skinner's lawyers as well as a really poor explanation for the action by Skinner at this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Your donation dollars at work."

    It looks like Head DUmmie Skinner can't abide any criticism, especially if it concerns his financial shennanigans. I recently read some exposés over at Ben Burch's DEMOCRAT WARRIOR (Ben Burche's forum) in which a former DUmmie Moderator revealed financial shennanigans by Skinner, namely how he let his LLC registration lapse without informing the DUmmies which is apparently a big no-no. So worried was Skinner about this that he sicced his lawyers on the Democrat Warrior site and they were forced to take down the posts by the former DUmmie mod as a result. I first found out about this...

    Head DUmmie Skinner is a strange dude. If you have ever seen a rare pic of him, he looks like a 15 year old kid trapped in the body of a 14 year old boy. Rather than being a fiery leftwing firebrand he is a rather passive type who allowed DUmmieland to be used by various unsavory characters, such as Bev Harris, as an easy source to shill money. His failure to enforce even the simplest of netiquette rules such as cracking down on excessive profanity, allowed the Daily Kos to quickly surpass DUmmieland as the biggest web gathering...

The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

As one of the more moderate members of the court, O'Connor has been the deciding vote for numerous extremely important court decisions. Her successor could tip the balance of power...

    It has been somewhat quiet on the Andy Stephenson front during the past month of June but here it is the beginning of July and the Scamdy scandal is breaking out all over again. The latest outbreak is in the Seattle Weekly magazine as you can see in this ARTICLE titled, “Two Cases of Bile” which is also the title of this DUmmie THREAD discussing the article. I urge everybody out there to read this Seattle Weekly article in that it provides great laughs in the Whitewash Dept.. Most particularly this line from the article, “’He has pancreatic cancer,’...

    It’s Pied Piper Pitt’s WORST nightmare. Scamdy has left Johns Hopkins Hospital (according to Scamdy) and is now posting in DUmmieland as you can see (UPDATE: Thread ELIMINATED by Skinner) in this THREAD titled, “Anyone want to guess who the former Mrs. Harasaki is?” Actually, Scamdy, the only thing I really want to guess is why the April 27 FAX posted by your cheerleader Pitt as “proof” that you have pancreatic cancer was able to accurately predict back then that you would have surgery on the week of May 23 when it was ORIGINALLY scheduled for May 10. Perhaps...

    As you can tell from the twinkle in his eyes and his ever moving eyebrows, Li’l Beaver is a rather impish critter. And today Li’l Beaver decided to smoke out a Rat by the name of William Rivers (Pied Piper) Pitt. Ever since Andy Stephenson’s operation yesterday at Johns Hopkins, there has been a blanket of silence in Dummieland thrown over the fact of whether or not he had surgery for Pancreatic Cancer. Every mention of “pancreatic cancer” in DUmmieland has been instantly deleted and thrown down the Memory Pitt by Skinner. Fortunately, a few such deleted posts have...

    It looks like William Rivers (Pied Piper) Pitt is doing a lot of worrying that the scam perpetrated by Andy Stephenson is going to explode in his face. Pity Poor Pathetic Pied Piper Pitt (had to get in at least one allitertation) for he hasn’t slept since April as you can see in this Pitt authored DUmmie THREAD titled, “I could use a little help here.” Yeah, Pitt, you could actually use a LOT of help WHEN the AndyScam blows up in such a way that even the incredibly gullible DUmmies realize that Andy Stephenson has been scamming them...

    There are about 300 million people in America and out of that vast number the ONE person who just so happened to have been a partner in crime with the Bev Harris election fraud scandal pleads with DUmmieland to give him $25,000 for an operation at Johns Hopkins hospital. If you remember, Bev Harris conned the DUmmies out of at least $300,000 because of her claim that she was just “$10 away” from proving election fraud. I say at least $300,000 because that is all that Bev unofficially claimed even though by LAW she was supposed to officially let...

    In this DUmmie THREAD titled, “OK, I changed the name back,” Dummieland’s Chief, Skinner, berates his fellow DUmmies for being a bunch of petty whiners for not wanting to let go of the “2004 Election Results and Discussion” forum name. Apparently the DUmmies can’t move on. They have to continue reliving the 2004 election over and over and over again. What’s next DUmmies? A “2000 Election Results and Discussion” forum? You can find the genesis of reverting back to the old outmoded name in this whine-filled DUmmie THREAD titled, “I miss the old name...This doesn't feel like ‘Home.’” Read...

    Today’s DUmmie FUnnies is a SPECIAL EDITION featuring the pissed off ringleader of all DUmmies---Skinner himself. I hope you excuse the brevity of this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies but I think we need to devote this whole special edition analyzing Skinner and his threats to the DUmmie Funnies. You can see Skinner’s angry post in yesterday’s DUmmie FUnnies HERE. Obviously the poor fellow is upset that he and his fellow DUmmies are being turned into laughingstocks by the DUmmie FUnnies. Also note his extreme fear of a DUmmie FUnnies book. So is this REALLY Skinner of the DUmmies? Judging...

    38. Skinner is right We need to stop assuming that CBS is perfect and start confronting the possibility that the documents are fake. This means we need to have a plausible response if and when it becomes obvious that the documents are fake. At this rate that will be any day now.

    Winifred Skinner doesn't wear her Tommy Hilfiger jacket anymore. She bought the jacket on sale years ago, before she retired. She wore it as she walked on the east side of Des Moines, picking up discarded soda pop and beer cans, which she redeemed for a nickel apiece, using the proceeds to help pay for her prescription drugs.

    Not Your Daddy’s GOP Tuesday, July 09, 2002 - Commentary by Cal Skinner, Gubernatorial Candidate, Libertarian Party Some of us are old enough to know Kennedy Democrats who are now Republicans. They switched parties because the Democratic Party had left them and their values. I have a sense that the Illinois Republican Party has left me. It is no longer the party of reform or limited government. Let's face it. The Illinois GOP is not your Daddy's Republican Party. Jim Thompson made a reputation for putting crooked Chicago area politicians -- both Democrats and Republicans -- in jail during the...

    The Illinois Leader ^ | Thursday, June 20, 2002 | The Leader-Chicago Bureau
    MCHENRY -- The Illinois Libertarian Party will be filing petitions on Monday for the slate of statewide candidates in Fall 2002 elections. The Illinois Republican Party is concerned about the effect Libertarian Party candidate for Governor former State Rep. Cal Skinner may have on the Governor's race. Cook County Republicans are now asking for assistance in challenging the Libertarian Party slate's petitions. "I'm not surprised at all about this," said Skinner of Crystal Lake. "As a matter of fact, a challenge just like this took place in 1998, and the Secretary of State's staff was allegedly involved in going through...

    The Chicago Daily Southtown ^ | Sunday, March 31, 2002 | Rich Miller
    Libertarians choose pol dogged by abuse claim to top ticket You have to wonder about the sanity of the folks who run the Libertarian Party. The Libertarians have the greatest opportunity in years to build their party. When Republican-leaning citizens become disenchanted, they often vote Libertarian. And the Republican Party is fractured and weak after a brutal primary campaign. The GOP winner, Jim Ryan, has yet to either unify his party or provide sufficient answers to many of the questions and accusations hurled at him by his two feisty opponents. The attacks didn't work well in the spring campaign,...
