      other voices on this site which now borders on being a fan club with very little concern shown about indefinite detention, kill lists, Drone attacks with a record of targeting funerals, weddings, and first responders (all of which are war crimes), expanding wars in six Muslim countries, and that's just a few of the things on the foreign policy side.

      On the home front we have offers of cuts to Social Security, a 'trade' deal being worked out in secret (attended by over 600 lobbyists but not open to Congress members) and will make Clinton's NAFTA look like a FDR New Deal proposal, the privatization of education under Arne 'never taught a class' Duncan, warrantless wiretapping of citizens, kangaroo courts in GITMO, ( and the Bradley Manning trial, the guy Obama has already called "guilty"), gutting smog regulations while touting "clean coal", a tax cut for the super rich that still gets called the Bush tax cuts when it only exists because of the 2010 Congress and this President's signature (and HIS negotiation) and just too freakin much more to bother listing.

      That's why I ignore the front page and  keep looking in on the 'what's happenin' diaries' to see when an alternative to this booster club is up and running. One thing is for sure people here attacked Firedoglake but they DO cover the things I mentioned and more. For example Chris Hedges did a review of his book there last week and the comment section was good with Hedges answering questions and not one person attacked him...he would get attacked big time on this site.

      I was glad to see your diary and chose to 'follow' you so that I'll be aware of any other diaries you post.

        I'm signing off until after the silly season.

        Its all too much for me, the willful blindness.

        I'll be back after November 4th or whatever date it is this year.

          in a corner of this site and I appreciate them having links to other diaries that should get recognized, but are otherwise buried under stories of the latest gaffe by a walking talking gaffe machine.
          I guess that's why we are able to 'follow' someone so we'll know when they post  a diary but mine all seem buried under diary links I did not choose to 'follow'.
          Do you know if there's a way to not have links to diarists automatically posted on your stream?
