      a diary I wrote about the economic trouble that our nation is heading toward like a run away freight train and can't get much interest here.

      Unless the diary has Hillary or Barack in the title, no one seems to care. Hard news is ignored during an election election cycle, BUT I have faith in Kos and know that most Kossacks do care. It's just more fun discussing elections.

      My last diary was a he said, she said diary, just to see if I could get some interest because even issues important to our nation are hard pressed to get more readers than what Hillary said about Barack or vise versa.  

      If you see me behind you..don't assume I'm following you. We just happen to be going the same way and if you slow down, I'll run over your ass.

      •  this is sad too (0+ / 0-)

        when I got here last year, I was delighted and astounded at the tremendous content and caliber of diarists here.  I was grateful to have found a group of people who really care about important issues, and I've learned a lot.

        The fact that diaries like this have to be rescued today in order for some of us to find it is a crying shame.  I'll be glad when these primaries are over!

        Not only that these longshoremen stood down from their jobs to stand up for the war, but the fact that the media in the US has not mentioned it in the least are very, Very VERY important issues that progressives should be rallying around!  There should be pictures of the longshoremen on this site.  There should be a LTE action call asking why the American people were not informed about it.

        I'm sick of the candidate diaries that quote the very traditional media as believeable when last year we were not just a little contemptuous of the propaganda being spoon-fed to Americans.  

        Thank you BNoise for this diary.  And TKH, I'd like to know how your "candidate" diary did :) as compared to a substance diary!
