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.

    Issue 2 is a loser for the repubs.  It's been on the negative side in polls since its inception.  They're saying the guv won't get hurt by it, but I'm betting many repubs in historically dem districts that won in the 2010 election are gonna have a tough time come Nov. 2012.

    debate reeenactments. But if you're keen to attend the Gingrich-Cain/Lincoln-Douglas it's gonna cost you more then the dvd I have.

    Bleacher seating at the Gingrich/Cain debate, hosted by the Texas Tea Party Patriots at the Woodlands Resort in Houston, costs a cool $200. The next step up, the $500 ticket, gets you “prime seating” and a ticket to the “Nite Cap party after the Debate,” says the group’s website. And for the really high rollers, $1,000 will get you “the best seating in the house for the debate” and  “a professional picture taken with the candidates.”

    The debate will focus on steps to rein in government spending and fix Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Cash earned from the verbal sparring match will go to support the tea party group’s “mission to organize, educate and inform our citizens regarding public policy, and to support the election of local, state and federal candidates who share our conservative values.”

    I'm guessing they'll both be Douglas's (Local Soveregnty on slavery). But not so much on abortion---wonder which will praise Mississippi first.

    If you didn't see Colbert the other day with the Cain ad with the cigarettes and the 8 second smile, you are not LIVING, man. I put that show on NEVER DELETE on the old DVR. I'll watch it on my death bed so I can die laughing.

    Then there's this one:

    Weird shit, man. I can't help thinking Herman Cain is playing a HUGE game of "Let's see if they'll go for this!"

    10/27/11 - The 40,000 American troops in Iraq are coming home — and so is their mail, if it is sent after Nov. 17.

    Mail addressed to soldiers in Iraq postmarked after Nov. 17 will be returned to sender.

    "Last call for mail: Nothing postmarked after November 17 will be delivered to Iraq," the Dept. of Veterans Affairs tweeted Thursday. read more>>>

    Herman Cain: I Am Now A Foreign Policy Expert

    Former pizza executive Herman Cain’s presidential campaign has been buffeted by a series of embarrassing foreign policy gaffes, from saying he would negotiate with terrorists to not knowing about the Palestinian right of return. He’s demonstrated such a lack of depth of knowledge in the area that fellow GOP candidate Newt Gingrich has suggested Cain is “not ready for primetime,” and veteran Republican strategist Karl Rove said Cain may not be “up to the task” of being commander in chief.

    But appearing on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show last night, Cain said he has now studied up and is ready to go toe-to-toe with the press on matters of national security:

     

     CAIN: Do you think I’m dumb enough not to study up on those issues? I’ve been studying up on these issues for months. I can now explain right of return to any reporter better than they understand right of return. Because, you know, you get caught off guard, you go to school and you learn. So I challenge them to try to explain it to me. Secondly, I have been consulting with former ambassadors, former national security advisers, I’ve been consulting with a number of experts to get up to speed on some of the situations we have around the world. So I challenge anybody who says I wouldn’t know how to address foreign policy.
  •  How 'bout this (0+ / 0-)

    idiotic proposition in Mississippi to make a fertilized egg a human being from a legal standpoint? I guess there were a  couple of diaries about it yesterday, that didn't generate much discussion with all of the other goings on.

    I just heard frakkin' idjit Ken Blackwell on Chris Matthews drone on about "in virto" fertilization, using this mispronunciation 4 times.  His only point was "we didn't consider it". Oh really? The guy was painful to listen to.

    Yeah, there are a lot of things they didn't consider. I hope they do pass this bill.  Then I can't wait until all these women who want fertilization treatments drop the hammer.

    Even more, I can't wait until every woman who has sex, married or not,  in a given month, is required by law to collect all of their menstrual fluid that month and have it microscopically examined!  Because if there is a fertilized egg that didn't happen to get implanted (it happens what, at least 60% of the time that eggs are fertilized?) , if she doesn't make every effort to save it and have it implanted either in herself or a surrogate, then if this bill passes,  it should be considered negligent homicide!

    There is obviously no bottom to the endless stupidity of the Republican Party and their theocratic supporters. It is exactly like a black hole - The stupidity continues to increase without limit until you reach the singularity where it becomes infinite.

    How many taxpayer dollars are they wasting to promote this legal absurdity?

    What possible legal justification is there?  

    Blackwell didn't think about the impact on in "virto" fertilization?  That is just the tip of the legal iceberg!!!  Is there anything that they DID consider?

  •  Fire official in Cleveland (0+ / 0-)

    held an informational meeting for all the "fire marshals" in our office tower last month. He told us that a fire doubles in temperature every minute. At one minute, 200 degrees. At 4 minutes, a human is dead. His point was that we should practice fire drills at home as well as at the office. (Think about it. What's the ratio of people killed in house fires vs. people killed in office towers?) But that one minute figure, coupled with this add, cuts right to the bone, doesn't it?

  •  PERFECT AD (0+ / 0-)

    Absolutely perfect. More of these, please. More of these "real Americans" (as they appear to many so-called Independants and the TeaPublicans, anyway) speaking truth to power.

    We need to line up "real Middle Class Americans" of every race, color and creed at the recording studios of New York and Hollywood to create ads that saturate the airwaves with truth-telling. What a novelty that would be for the 2012 election, eh?

    Now THAT's the president I voted for!
