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.
GOP governors, most notably, Rick Scott of Florida, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Rick Perry of Texas, and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, are proud to tell their constituents that they will refuse to implement the Affordable Care Act in their states. Their refusal to accept Medicaid money from the federal government will effectively kill many of the poor people who reside in their states. They are in essence saying, "We don't want you to have medical care when you need it, and we do not care if you die!" In fact, Republican governors sound like they would prefer it if the poor in their states WOULD die...
These governors are the Red Menace of the 21st century and they must be condemned for their lack of compassion, as well as for their stupidity. With the implementation of the Medicaid provision of the Affordable Care Act just around the corner, these fools have decided that they do not want their residents to reap any benefits that would come with access to health care or medications.
"Let them eat cake!" will now be replaced with, "Let them die!" and Republican governors, as well as Republicans at large, love it!
