More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    It's definitely not a diary, but this is a very valid point.  It should be noted that this is one of the reasons that Wal-Mart can do what it does.  It uses the tax funded infrastructure to supplement its business practices.  

    The thing is that while I can't stand Wal-Mart, this is the way businesses operate in general.  All businesses rely on the tax funded infrastructure to stay in business.  All of them.  

    I uprated the tip jar.

    this is getting to be a habit.  

    Diaries should be substantive. A good guideline is that if you don't have at least three solid paragraphs to write about your subject, you should probably post a comment in an open thread, or in a recent diary or front-page post that covers a topic relevant to what you wish to write about.

    I'm not the diary police, but the diarist needs to provide something, anything, more than a statement and a link.  The "diaries" are getting shorter, not longer....
