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
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.

You have to meet some requisites before you can do that. First your spouse may have a serious illness then you have to cheat on her while acting like your very faithful and totally committed to your marriage. Then you have to take pictures father a child and then pay money out to cover it all up. THEN you have to let your first wife die or just wither away and then you say your mistress is true love.
yeah thats the ticket.

What do they really think happens to their marriage?
Does it's monetary value go down? Are they able to borrow on the equaty of their Marriage? Do they have to marry someone of the same sex or just know they have to have sex with someone else?
Really what happens when you give someone the same rights you have.

and I think you're probably right.
See, everybody knows that something is more valuable if it's scarcer, right?
So, obviously, if more people (especially those people) can get married, then the value of all marriages declines. Simple supply and demand!

When you buy a ticket for the ride, you agree to binding arbitration, just like your credit card company.
by Headlight on Mon Jun 20, 2011 at 08:14:38 AM PDT
every lift ticket has lots of fine print (impossible to read in a snowstorm, and available after you buy the thing) listing a whole bunch of ways skiing and snowboarding can separate you from your corporeal form, and informing you that it's nobody's fault but your own and nature's.
A sentiment with which I agree, but pretending that tiny print on the back of a lift ticket constitutes some kind of actual warning and an education of risks involved is laughable. It does discourage lawsuits, though, and that's the real idea.
Obama's like Bush? No. He's more like Cheney. They both shoot people in the face.

The United States has finally derailed the crazy train.
How fucking crazy to you have to be to limit voter right and still say its for our own good. Put up a statue of Frederick Douglas and the GOP states that it insults the statue of the Sons of Confederacy. Take away the rights of Unions and say its good for the People.
Honestly sometimes the things that come out of the GOP has me shocked into silence.

A decade ago this would have probably seemed impossible, sadly it was all too possible. The Republicans have jumped off a tea party cliff and are now insisting everything's fine as they quickly approach the jagged rocks below. They've ceased to be a political party that, while severely misguided, was genuinely devoted to this country. They've become nothing but an obstacle to progress. Their entire goal in this country is to make sure nothing gets done, keep the economy down for political gain, and destroy the President.

I don't read political cartoons for light amusement. I read them to remember I am not alone.
TT does witty work, I am not trying to put him down...would never do that.
But it's hell trying to be a funny political cartoonist in this country, and has been for decades. How do you laugh about evil that has worked itself systematically into your culture for so long, and so successfully?
by Miep on Mon Jun 20, 2011 at 11:54:55 PM PDT
I think his cartoons are just the right balance. They make me laugh at the utter absurdity that's being petaled, reminded me the truth is on my side, and leave a smile on my face.
Sometimes it's either laugh or cry, and when I have to chose, I pick laughter (most days), even in the worst of times, but some days, like today, I just can't laugh it off anymore.

Welcome back to Keith and Markos. I have missed you both. A lot of people, myself included, had no idea why you Markos, had disappeared. We loved your calling Tancreado on the carpet for being a cowardly draft dodger, reaffirming that is exactly what you meant and we just didn't know what happened to you.
Now to find out that another whiny, cowardly republicant is responsible for you not bein on MSNBC is outrageous.
What can we do to right this? Why can't we start a campaign agains "Morning Slow"?
We're glad you're back. And if more Dems in the public eye were like you and Keith, things would not be so fu**ed up!
