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.

    I'm glad that the KosServer is back up!

    So will Staten Island hurt Obama? But I see that somebody already diaried that.

    So did Romney & Co. saying in not so many words "vote for us or the GOP will break things" help or hurt us with picking up the House and other offices?

    I'm happy that OWS is back and helping cleanup after Sandy.

    I just remembered about Frank Miller doing his drunken rant against Occupy yet umpteen years earlier in the Dark Knight, he had the lower classes picking up after a disaster while the rich did a whole lot of nothing....

    Southern Nevada woman is arrested on suspicion of trying to vote twice

    Investigators today arrested a Southern Nevada woman suspected of trying to vote twice this week at two different polling locations.

    Roxanne Rubin was taken into custody as she arrived for work at the Riviera hotel-casino, investigators said. Rubin, 56, is a registered Republican who lives in Henderson, according to the Clark County Registrar.

    Rubin allegedly cast a vote Monday at the Anthem Community Center in Henderson. Later that day, she tried to vote a second time at an early voting location on Eastern Avenue, investigators said.

    Voter Fraud Derangement Syndrome™ ... obviously Republicans projecting. Their inherent belief that all people are deceitful connivers has led them to put multi-million dollar voter fraud "protections" in place, only to snare their own.

    Schadenfreude.

      G/M, Jan.  That's a good catch there.  

      Ballsy these GOPers.  What I hate the most is their always pointing a finger at us and accusing us of doing something that they in fact are doing themselves.  Is there a word for that?  Should be.

      Do the Badgers have a bye week this week?

        And then a bye-bye to this season next week when they will lose to Indiana. Our quarterback went down with a broken collarbone and our "new" quarterback (NetNegativeYards O'Brien)  is the one we demoted after two games to start the season.

        The other possibility for quarterback is a guy who we recruited 5 years ago and who never started a game because of injuries. He is  now a senior and has had 3 knee surgeries. Why do guys do that to themselves?

          Recommended by:
          JaxDem, JanF
          In contrast with the more liberal and cosmopolitan Multnomah County to the north, and the more corporate Washington County to the west, some citizens of Clackamas county have espoused a blue-collar, yet conservative political outlook of the backlash mold described by Thomas Frank. It is the headquarters of Lon Mabon, whose Oregon Citizens Alliance has worked to pass a number of anti-homosexual initiatives, and where Bill Sizemore, who has championed various anti-government initiatives for most of the 1990s, had his base before he moved to Klamath Falls. However, it is a very mixed area overall, narrowly voting for Republican George W. Bush over Democrat John Kerry in 2004, but moderately voting for Democrat Barack Obama over Republican John McCain in 2008.

            jar opener last night and it still would not open that one jar lid that gave me fits.  However, son opened said lid for me.

            We did test it out on other lids and it works like a champ.

            I measured (twice) and found screws that Mitt Romney would be proud of as they were just the right height and they did not pierce through the shelving.  Whoo Hoo!  Let's hear it for measuring twice ;-)

            Thanks for the advice, ex.

              I know I said turn it upside down and smack it on the counter but I'm going to be replacing my counter. That busts the seal. The floor or some other firm object works OK. think: do no harm.
              Finally: buy brands with more userfriendly jars

      would be putting this lady's face on a billboard?

      Venture capitalist behind fraud billboards

      Stephen and Nancy Einhorn are the “Private Family Foundation” behind billboards warning that “voter fraud is a felony” that can result in “up to 3 1/2 years and a $10,000 fine.”  Stephen Einhorn runs investment banking and venture capital firms. The couple has given nearly $50,000 to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) since 2005.

      TheGrio and One Wisconsin Now first reported Monday that the billboards were funded by the Einhorn Family Foundation. In a statement to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Einhorns confirmed that they were behind the ads and said that they placed them “as a public service,” not for partisan advantage.

      I've wondered if Ira Einhorn -- The Unicorn Killer -- was any relation to them.
