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.

things differently, it's that they can only interpret the world to meet their beliefs. This means that on Monday 2+2 = 1, on Wednesday 2+2 = 7 and on Saturday 2+2 = 34.
Only when the facts 100% support them does 2+2 = 4. And then only for that one fact and that one day.
I think things will only get worse for the R's for the rest of Obama's presidency and the 2016 elections.

McCoy gets absorbed into "the body" and forgets who Spock and Kirk are. When he meets them they try to pretend to be "of the body" but he rats them out.
This episode also had a instance of human beings driving a computer nuts by pointing out contradictions in its behavior.
The ending is similar to "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain"

about how the election showed that Republicans now have a mandate to carry out the Romney/Ryan plan.
Sad thing is, Obama will probably interpret his election as a mandate to give the Republicans 90% of what they want.

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out. The gravity is so strong because matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. This can happen when a star is dying.
A black hole is what happened when Glenn Beck
retreated deeper and deeper into his bubble.

Romney went to France instead of serving in our military, got rich chop-shopping US businesses and eliminating US jobs, off-shored his money in the Cayman Islands, and now tells us to "Believe in America."

Nostalgia always makes the good better, and the bad forgotten. Rs want the good old days of the 1950s--ignoring that Ike warned of the military/industrial complex, that taxes on the rich were confiscatory, that non Christian whites were not free--or even able to vote. Also, they ignore that the world has changed--not only smaller, but more competitive. You can't go back--usually that's a good thing. Delusion is a form of insanity--that it is encouraged should be criminal.

Fox and the rest of the "conservative entertainment complex" started out by creating a reality distortion field they could use on the general public, and somehow this cycle they wound up using it only on themselves. It's like they started off as drug dealers and wound up as addicts who stopped dealing any of the supply.

Modern World in a while, and that's saying a lot! Information containment suits! LOL!
I think what I like about it so much is that it reveals a rather terrifying reality: teabagger wingnuts can now customize their information streams to entirely validate their twisted worldview. We now actually have significant numbers of grown men advocating violent overthrow of the government for utterly imaginary reasons. The historical analogy is unspeakable (ok, Nazi Germany - I didn't speak it). And there is no end in sight.

perhaps the solid and liquid wastes powers the suit somehow... or is it coal burning steam powered?... solid waste fueled steam power? Or is the power source separate and do they just let all the waste products accumulate... and fester like the memes fed in and trapped inside along with it all... all overlooked factors not included in the suit's original designs...

when I was going after my master's degree, we had an assignment in one class to come up with an invention and try to sell it. I came up with a device that would repel all ideas that did not conform to a person's ideology. It was in the form of a halo to be marketed to the Religious Right. I want royalties, Tom!
