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.
On her THE WAR ROOM show last night, Gov. Jennifer Granholm got us All Fired Up and Ready to Go..with her ending 'Obama coaching' comment. It is not recorded as a segment that I can find, but came after her salute to VOLUNTEERS. She canvassed with volunteers in Virginia last weekend. She herself traveling door to door, as she is an old hand at this. Of course, she had a cameraman etc too, but still.
After that she gave a brief ending comment prompting President Obama to become fiery and Fired Up himself. She used the Stock Market and Employment UP 5 Years and Foreclosures Down...and ended with the 'We Are On the Right Track...No Going Back!'
But more economic news today includes the fact that everyone on Social Security will get a 1.3% COLA increase come January. (Thank you, two more meals per month. ..well if they don't raise Medicare costs.)
....and Reuters noted that the Stock Market was UP and that AMAZON is hiring 50,000 for the holidays.
All of which prompted me to make some online posters.
....and, since The Boss is going to perform at OBAMA rallies in Both PARMA, OHIO and AMES, IOWA on Thursday, October 18, and Big Dog Bill Clinton will be at Parma rally,
I made one for those events too, using a great 'BORN in USA' pic someone else made.
12:00 UPDATE: Re Venues which weren't out yesterday:
Springsteen will be joined by President Bill Clinton for a get-out-the-vote fall in at Cuyahoga Community College, West College, in Parma, Ohio to drum up support for the Obama/Biden ticket. He will then head out to Ames, Iowa, near the Iowa State University campus, to push the ticket later in the day Thursday.
