    It makes a diary almost unreadable IMO. Bold and Italics are a better choice.

    Sorry to nitpick. I do agree that there's too many ConservaDems in Congress and on this website, and that Obama is making a big mistake on chained CPI. Dozens of center-right "progressives" defended Walmart in a rec-listed diary today.

    But I think you should take a deep breath and try again. You make valid points but this diary is hard for me to make sense of. Just some constructive criticism.

    "Progressives" who vote for chained CPI aren't progressives. I support Obama most of the time because he has accomplished a lot, but I do so knowing he's about as far left as Eisenhower. It's crazy how our political spectrum has changed and Democrats just accept it as a new normal. I'll never accept it.

    Some would say that I'm off my gourd. I would say that I am a gourd.

    •  I received a fund request email from Ms. Pelosi (2+ / 0-)

      and some group, I forget which one. Seeing her name, requesting that I help fund her and those who claim to be Democrats but who support the chained-CPI enraged me to the point where I had to respond. I looked up the "contact" group and sent a request explicitly stating never to send me any mail from Ms. Pelosi again due to her strong support reported for the chained-cpi. I described these effects of chained-cpi as a betrayal of us ordinary folk who voted for the Democrats, some for many years. I am glad that I  mailed that response.
      I have yet to find a simple way to contact her directly, as her web page does not work if you do not live in her district, and her other email bounces back. That she is untouchable in her position of power over my life really blows my blood pressure to dangerous levels.
