  •  REC LIST THIS DIARY! (9+ / 0-)

    This deserves to be rec-listed and picked up by as much of the MSM as has the guts to touch it.

    I'd rec the diary myself but my diary rec button has apparently disappeared due to a computer glitch with my browser (I can't reset the browser at the moment, too many windows open that I need to keep open or bookmark in some way) (and no, I haven't gotten smacked by Admin or lost any privs).  

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!

      G2G: when my rec button disappears, it is usually bc login timed out.  It happened to me today, login again fixed it.

      Seishin - you may want to move up near the top of the diary the cite to Boston Globe story

      ROMNEY PROFITED ON FIRM LATER TIED TO FRAUD DAMON CORP. FINED AFTER SALE BY BAIN

      Globe is highly credible major media, owned by NY Times IIRC, compared to oppo research muckraking, even though the full Globe story is behind a paywall.

      I found it (summary + pay option for full article) with archive search here.

      There's no such thing as a free market!

      •  agreed, put the fraud stuff at the top. (0+ / 0-)

        That's the major news and it needs to get more traction.

        BTW, logout/login didn't work (including clearing cookies and trying again).  I'll have to reboot the browser and the entire machine at some point (not tonight).   Thanks for the suggestion, but also let's not do any further troubleshooting right here in this diary, it would be a digressive thread and the story is too important to have any digressions.

        Albanius & G2geek, Thank you so much for supporting this and for your suggestions.

        I began editing as suggested; however, Boston Globe is cited several times throughout the article (16 times). I'm assuming the scattershot of Boston Globe cites bring it far enough up in the article to warrant notice? If you think there's something else needing editing (or if I misunderstood the request), please let me know, thanks.

        "Maybe we should not have humored [Native Americans]...wanting to stay in that kind of primitive lifestyle. Maybe we should have said, no, come join us; be citizens along with the rest of us." ~ Pres. Reagan 05/31/88 (the speech that turned me Democrat)
