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.
You must be a member of a group to use this feature.

if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

JP Morgan over the probems with them trying to take our house. We are a couple of years from getting it settled, but once this one is in court we go after them under Civil RICO, they dual tracked us so they get to pay those millions in fines twice, seems fair to me. Then every thing gets turned over to the Justice Department for the potential of criminal RICO charges. They are very very very bad people there is no punishment fitting the misery they brought to millions of families in this country, they need to lose absolutely everything.

most of it finding an attorney who wasn't afraid to take them on and had a clue about the laws. See there are laws, real ones that have real consequences for the lenders but they aren't enforced other than going to court. It is scary to find out your lender has been breakig the law and no one can stop them but you. Most people, even if they know they are right give up because of the lack of legal help available and the cost of mounting a suit. The only reason we could afford it is my youngest son did all the leg work and research, we literaly handed our attorney two big boxes of documentation and evidence representing the case. She laughs that she has really had very little to do, but win of course.

to be subject to review every year; if they behave badly they lose their cushy positions and get in new, fresh blood. That way you punish the real culprits, and don't hurt the rank and file who work for the corporation (administrative assistants, file clerks, warehouse employees and the like).

Another home run for Eric. Yay!! But really, it would be a shame to send Mr. Dimon to one of our country club federal white collar prisons. I say we put him out on work release, only he has to work in soup kitchens, hospitals, road clean-up crews and the like. Let him see what life is like for the victims of his machinations. Who knows, maybe dirty hands will clean his soul, if he even has one.

Dimon, in the kitchen: "Do you have any idea who I am? You can't treat me like this!"
Crew chief: "According to the terms of your work release program, I can, and I will. Those dishes are not clean. Try again. Maybe third time is the charm."
Dimon, whining, "The soap is tearing my hands up and the water's too hot..."
Crew chief, "You think we care about your hands? Put some lotion on 'em after work. I used to think anybody could wash dishes, but you are sure on your way to proving me wrong. Maybe we'll have to demote you to garbage detail. Get back to work."

poisonous snakes and lizards in Guatemala on Wild Things today on BBC America. I see that he could have stayed at home in London and just chased around the banks instead.
Look at that! This one has a bite that just won't let go! It's like a money badger.
Same for his coming shows on giant insects and giant spiders and army ants. All right there in the City, weaving their webs or devouring everything in sight.
BTW, in Walt Kelly's Pogo, Snavely the snake also sold snake oil, and claimed that when times were bad he would bite himself in the tail just to ring up a sale. Actually, as a form of insider trading it sounds less harmful than the self-infllicted wounds amounting to billions of pounds the London whale lost in too clever derivatives trading. Apparently he is like the self-referential Post-Modern gangster who made himself an offer he couldn't understand.
