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.

    ...of the country, but here in Chicago we just ended a mini-storm. I wish I had some sort of synthetic wormhole device that I could use to transfer water to the drought-stricken areas. I'd also use it to move piles of petcoke into the walled Koch compound in Kansas, at night.

      It's called "burning sequestered carbon" and it's very effective. There is no important leadership interest in changing this.

  •  US weighs direct military action against ISIS in S (0+ / 0-)

    WASHINGTON-The Obama administration is debating a more robust intervention in Syria, including possible American air strikes, in a significant escalation of its weeks-long military assault on the Islamic extremist group that had destabilized neighboring Iraq and killed an American journalist, officials said today.

    While President Obama has long resisted being drawn into Syria’s bloody civil war, officials said recent advances by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria had made clear that it represented a threat to the interests of the United States and its allies. The beheading of James Foley, the American journalist, has contributed to what officials called a “new context” for a challenge that has long divided the president’s team.

    Officials said the options include speeding up and intensifying limited American efforts to train and arm moderate Syrian rebel forces that had been fighting both ISIS as well as the government of President Bashar al-Assad. Another option would be to bolster other partners on the ground to take on ISIS, including the Syrian Kurds.

    I was at the airport a few days ago and saw an ad for a Franco-Belgian bank, or more specifically its private banking services...

    It said: Your Wealth has a voice. Let it be heard!.

    Disgusting. And don't even get me started on the asshats that came up with, approved or might be swayed by this ad. Pfff.

  •  Officer Goe Phuc Ushakov (0+ / 0-)

    By now everyone is aware of the video where the Ferguson cop threatens to kill reports. When they ask him his name, he replies what they heard as 'Go fuck yourself.' But I think maybe they misunderstood him.

    What if the officer had a Swedish father and a Vietnamese mother?  What if they misheard the last name?

    Goe is a perfectly good name in Sweden for boys, although it has Norwegian origins. It is an abbreviated form of Godwine, or God's Wine, and with the ultimate meaning of 'God's bounty.'

    Phuc, in Vietnamese means 'blessing.'

    So, if a Swedish man were to fall in love with a graceful Vietnamese women, they might blend their two rich cultures together and name their child with the inspiring 'Goe Phuc', with the meaning of 'The Blessing of God's bounty.'

    It is sad that a child with such a beautiful name turned out so angry.

    While we are on the subject - Portland has a bridge for sale! It is a single trust three span bridge designed by the legendary Gustav Lindentha, who designed the Hell Gate Bridge in New York City. You can't get a much more historical bridges than this. It is the only single trust three span bridge in America that is still used for cars. And we will let it go for cheap!

    Sure it cost us more than a million dollars to move it 60 feet while we were building the new bridge, and it will cost you a bit more to move it to your backyard, but this is a once and a life time chance. You can't pass this up. You know you want it.

    Tell me, can I sell you a bridge?
