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.
this is the face of a man who has sold out and is only now realizing the consequences of his actions.
The battle for freedom of speech on the Internet is being lost. The victory over SOPA and PIPA was a temporary one. The imaginary property industry has not relented in its assault on the American People. They have drafted new legislation and they have sent their puppet, Senator Harry Reid out to fight the battle again.
What is particularly shameful is that this abomination of law is being pushed by the Democrats. Remember, the Democrats? They used to be the party of the People. Now they are the party of money and secrecy and repression. And they seem to have no shame.
Well, Senator Reid, allow me to remind you that the People paid for the Internet. It is not yours to give away. Our free speech rights are also not yours to give away. You could be an advocate for those rights. You could be a great man. Instead you choose to be a whore for monied interests. You disgust me.
