or, a whitebread redneck majority-dailykos-demographic dude tries to become a sistah.  I'm taking the week off in support of the BK walk out.

Like my bud Julie Gulden, I would strongly suggest you read sberel's post and blue jersey mom's post, along the the threads therein.

Every time I go back to TN, I listen to and argue with the subtle and no-so-subtle racist attitudes towards President Obama, much of it from my own dadgum family.  Burns my butt worse than a three-foot flame.  Much as I love hanging out here, I can't take it here too.

There'sMoreVille contains some typical bubbanomics-type bitching-and-moaning about moderation.

We tried laissez faire, unrestrained free-market, Pete Petersen wet-dream moderation:


We tried a totally underfunded one-man-on-a-mission moderation:


When he quit, we briefly revisited libertarian hell:


Then, an appeal went out.


The Law of Unintended Consequences Made Itself Heard. The Patron Saint of Moderation...

Became the cruel dictator he warned us he would be.

I'm reminded of a Denis Leary stand up routine.  Said Denis:
I think Rodney King said it best, when he said "OW! OW! OW!

So, for now, I'm trying my luck elsewhere for a while.

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.
