Parrots were spotted in Barrow, Alaska today. “It don't mean nothing,” said an oil field biologist.

Once again, US troops killed a bunch of people somewhere for some reason. “It's a turning point for the American mission,” said some dummy.

Drone strikes took out a small group of homegrown terrorists in downtown Seattle today along with an undisclosed number of innocent bystanders. “You're gonna have collateral damage,” said a government spokesperson.

Some Republican Senator (major league asshole IOWs) came out today and said, “People earning less than a million dollars a year shouldn't be allowed to breathe the air...our air.”

A Democratic Senator (somewhat lesser asshole IOWs) responded, “On this side of the aisle, we recognize the right to breathe all the way down to the hundred k level.”

In other news...

The Occupy Everywhere Movement has taken over the entire west coast of the United States and is moving east.

And on a historical note, of course Elvis wanted to be in the DEA. He knew who had the good dope.

That's Your Fucked Up World Today.

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.
