Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
if you really want to know what Third Way is all about, just look at their Board of Trustees: 22 of the 30 come from Wall Street, including all three officers (and features the global head of equity trading at Goldman Sachs). It's nothing more than a Wall Street front group.
Their agenda can be summarized as follows:
(1.) Foreclose on Democratic voters, by opposing principle paydown or a foreclosure moritorium.
(2.) Fire Democratic voters, by slashing public sector jobs
(3.) Make the Democratic voters who still have jobs take a pay cut
(4.) Liquidate the pensions of remaining Democratic voters.
You know, the kind of things that get Wall Street all excited.
So of course a Third Way stooge will claim that striking a populist tone is wrong! On the plus side, you know that if the Third Way disapproves, Obama is doing the right thing.
Update: Pilkington, in the comments:
Populism is "pessimistic"?
WTF? So, so the "optimists" are those who are stealing the future of the American people to replenish their bank accounts?
