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.

    because it's "humming" a dirge for the middle class. President Obama deserves credit for slowing the decline of the American economy, and would have done even better if it were not for fascist obstructionism, but his policies have failed - and could not have succeed - to end the "inevitable" slide of the economic well being of the majority of the American people.

  •  There was a massive restructuring (0+ / 0-)

    several years ago that shuffled the deck, preceded by almost ten years of the greatest redistribution of wealth in world history, preceded itself by twenty years of consolidating ownership. Right now, we're doing the best we've done in a long time, but a lot of people were forced to start at zero.

    Also, in the 90s, the media cheerled the booming economy meme; now, not so much.  

    I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.
