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
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.

do you mean "civilians" and "children"? (trying not to read to much into quotation marks)

the government is doing to them, let alone what it's doing half a world away.
Most voters, on either side, think that once the election is over their part in Democracy™ is over. Some stay engaged on both side but a vanishingly small number.
If we can't get them to care about Republicans fucking them over on jobs for the last 4 years what hope do you think we have that they'll care about civilians being killed in Pakistan?
To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.

a lot of the ones who are paying attention (including many at this site) think these drone bombings and other outrageous policies are just fine; especially if Obama's for it.

Republicans are up in arms because he inserted his penis in an orifice that wasn't his wife's vagina.
When a Republican wins back the Oval Office (and it will happen), except Democrats to be up in arms because of Droney-like behavior (it's okay while Obama, or any other Democrat does it, though).

P4 apologizes for an indiscretion but I would rather he apologize for his gung ho support of the drone program.

Droney must be so proud.
But hey, if they save American lives, it's all good, right?

somebody needs to tell the FP writers. The world out side the political horse race seems to be on fire, droney and his friends are having a field day. Blaming it on people not paying attention while our media and even dkos just rehashes the game plays of the R's vs D's seems kind of arrogant and hypocritical as the majority of people paid enough attention and had enough sense to vote against the bat shit crazy evil.
Perhaps we could now pay attention to what we won, instead of haggling and blaming teh stupid people who aren't paying attention for the direction and agenda this country is taking. Maybe teh stupid would be more aware of what's going on if they got to hear some truth or had a media hat actually addressed the reality outside the electoral political side show and the insane culture wars.
Droney's a by-partisanly approved critter. Betrayus as head of the Spooks was appointed Democratic president. Thanks TT you got that right.

I visit less and less and only because of a handful of posters (with Tom Tomorrow being one of them).

as its counterpart partisan blogs, though, in terms of its utility.
That is, I visit for two things: to see the partisan-democratic-establishment spin on the issues of the day and for the occasional entertainment.
A few gems can be found here, too, which is much more than can be said for the reprehensible cesspools of stupidity and evil that are republican partisan sites. At least this place has people who are intelligent and sane (even the conservatives in our party are relatively more sane); I'm not sure "sane" should ever be used to describe the republicans' partisan dens (except when prefixed with "in").
by JustinBinFL on Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 12:47:39 PM PST
which is, I guess, fine. The site has drifted a bit from its origins, when the reason for electing more Democrats was to further the policies that are outlined pretty well in the 2008 Party platform.
Now it's considered bad form to mention that the administration might be wrong about anything, because Romney/Rubio/Jeb Bush would be worse.
That might be true, too.
by Shahryar on Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 02:56:08 PM PST
of voters thought they we're worse, so that's not the issue at hand is it? The platform from 08 is a joke and all the Dems care about is maintaining the status quo, the same old intolerable one we fought against in 2008. The new platform the one we all voted for isn't so great but your right it's better then a poke in the vagina.

in an abstract sense and on some issues.
On the issues where politicians will actually act (entitlements, defense) with any vigor, they're all in it to win it--for the obscenely wealthy.
The Democratic (leadership) position on Medicare, for example, is "we define 'not breaking our promise' to be 'having a program called Medicare, even if it has severely cut benefits (for those under 55; we need the older crowd to support us, though, so we won't touch their benefits, and the rest of y'all can get fucked)'".
The Republican position on Medicare is "we shouldn't have this entitlement, but since old people won't vote for us if we get rid of it, let's have a program called Medicare, but it will operate like Obamacare's Mandate, only for seniors".
Basically they both amount to benefits cuts for people under 55 years of age, and in many areas (e.g. co-pays/premiums) for everybody.
It took a Democrat to take on entitlements the way Obama has, and the reason other than partisan party/horse-race politics that most kossaks support it is because most kossaks are either affluent whites who won't be impacted much (if at all) by the benefit cuts, or people who are likely to be in the coveted, protected "over 55" group by the time benefits cuts come around.
I had several senior citizens come to my door canvassing for OFA and try to tell me how great Obamacare is. They were taken aback when I pointed out that Rmoney/Ryan's voucher plan would do to them what Obama wants the rest of us to deal with. But they also likely didn't care; they got theirs after all.

cartoons where we could tell good guys from bad guys by whether they wore all black or all white. Either way --- someone lit a bomb.

War is bad for children & other living things.
What if they gave a war & nobody came?
Give peace a chance.
