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.

  •  How to waste $100M dollars, by big city mayors. (2+ / 0-)

    How does this add up to $100M, let me count the ways.

    Jean Quan said the first fiasco in Oakland cost close to a million dollars, and the there was a 2nd eviction, then a third at 19th and Telegraph.

    Denver cops chose to evict their Occupiers 4 or 5 times. There were at least 2 large-scale evictions in Boston, 2 in Portland, two attempted and one successful in NYC. A large scale eviction in LA, one in Seattle. Let's make a conservative estimate based on what Jean Quan said and say each large scale raid costs $300,000. 3 plus 5 plus 2 plus 2 plus 2  plus 1 plus 1 times $300k, that's $4.8 mil just for the cities mentioned. Not to mention other large scale evictions I forgot about right now.

    There was a raid in Berkeley where that girl in the first video in the diary was beaten, now they're doing it again. How much did that cost taxpayers and college students? How much did the Pepper Spray Cop fiasco cost us?

    Repeated smaller scale daily evictions in Fresno and Sacramento that didn't get much press, repeated evictions in Atlanta and Nashville and Orlando and St Louis and Des Moines and so many others. And the raids really accomplished nothing, the Occupiers still keep coming back.

    One-time evictions in Cleveland and Youngstown and Salt Lake City, and those cities are still Occupied. Add all the beefed-up police presence we didn't ask for, and court and jail costs, and all the other police raids that are too numerous to count, it's gotta be $100 million dollars.

    Jesus. $100 Million Dollars. What could we have done with that instead of pepper spraying old ladies and beating up college girls? How many struggling families could that put back in their homes?
