Reading an update on the Huffington Post this morning and I saw yet another story related to Occupy as their front page.

I laughed when the lady on camera talked about how we have not been raised to think for the good of the community. Seriously Occupy? How selfless Occupy does appear to be. All they want are simple things like "financial equality" (More money for them and less for the overachieving people who worked and talked their way into the money making jobs on Wall Street). Statements like these are yet another reason why this movement will go nowhere. It will die down like another scream from a spoiled child who is not getting his way. And yet even programs like BBC think it is worth paying attention to? The only reason Occupy has gotten this far is that programs like the Huffington Post, Drudge, Fox News, and even BBC gives them the very best advertising for free.

And yet we are crying because we think our world is unfair. Hey, gues what. The USA has it better than any other country in the Americas. Whatever happens to the USA hurts Mexico two, five, or ten times as much. And the USA does not even have half the problems with drug cartels and mafias as Mexico. You think you have it bad in your cozy green lawn? Look at the desert across the border. Over those mountains. Across the river. The grass is not only greener here, it is paradise compared to the rest of the countries on our two connected continets.

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.
