I got home a little while ago and started to read all the updates on the Syria situation.A fellow diarist had wrote a piece  about the whip counts in the house and senate . Read another piece about republicans voting against Obama because they hate him and so forth.It just occurred to me im starting to feel very much the same as i did  in the fall of 08 when the votes on the banks bailouts were going on.The majority of the country left,right ,and center didn't want to bail the banksters out and yet we still did with Obama's encouragement and im fearful that yet again the powers at be will do what they want and it makes me very frustrated.Just venting......................

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.

    considering the seriousness of the entire situation.  And I HAVE given it a LOT of thought.  Still come down on the side of not intervening...  but....

    as I listened to snippets on NPR of Pres. Obama and SoS Kerry press the issue of "sending a message" in such passionate and heated speeches, my first thought was:  "I wish the administration had come out fighting that passionately for us 99%'ers when he first got into office!  

    Like... for a real stimulus and WPA-type jobs program, not to mention a real "Medicare for all" program for all of us here who've lost our jobs, our savings, our retirements, our homes....  and stayed strong fighting that good fight with all he had until the Repubs either moved, or he shamed them enough with the country that we actually GOT some relief.

    Why is there always money for bombs and war, but never enough money to enable your own people to feed, clothe, and house themselves and their children with dignity and grace?
