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.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. 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.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

Please begin with an informative title:

"My Plan is not to have any tax cuts that increase the deficit."

well........er, if  the same or less revenue is coming in and the interest is ticking up, well uh... like the deficit increases.

Also would someone please tell me how taxation decreases employment? I have always observed it to  be otherwise because people naturally tend to want to spend rather than pay taxes and employees are one way to do that. In the alternative, where is the magic button that makes lower taxes result in higher employment?

Let's face it, there's a hole in the roof and rather than borrow money to fix it, Romney would rather let the roof cave in entirely and ruin the rest of the house. It doesn't affect him, he's got enough money for 1000 lifetimes.

And what's this business about shopping around for better insurance? All insurance sucks. It's intentionally complicated. We need Medicare for all. Money is fungible; who cares whether it goes to "taxes" for healthcare rather than to some predatory middle man who may renege on your bargain? Same money. Why aren't we embracing the Cooperative model? Buy in bulk? Do we really SHOP for healthcare? I don't know anybody who does. You get your malady and you get the appropriate treatment. It's not like you have a disease itinerary you can map out.

Oh and all you/us people who are under 55 are just screwed.
