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.
The passage of the NDAA language allowing indefinite detention of any US citizen, without charge or trial, is possibly the most dangerous legislation ever passed to date.
Tangerine Bolen is one of the brave seven Plaintiffs filing in Hedges vs Obama lawsuit trying to preserve our Civil Liberties. Tonight she joins Wild Wild Left Radio to talk to us about this suit.
She is founder and Executive Director of RevolutionTruth, an organization dedicated to restoring legitimate democracies in part through increasing access to accurate information. She has led campaigns in support of WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning; these actions making her a direct target of the Obama administration's ambiguous language:
Section 1021(b)(2) authorizes the military to detain any U.S. citizen who "substantially supported" al-Qaida, the Taliban or "associated forces" and then hold them in military compounds until "the end of hostilities."
Tangerine also hosts RevolutionTruth's panel series of discussions between activists in the West and Middle East which is geared toward sharing knowledge, challenging War-on-Terror-aggravated stereotypes, and building worldwide networks of support between those seeking decreased oppression, increased liberty and the creation of just and equitable systems.
I am thrilled to host Ms Bolen, we are all very lucky to be able to gain an inside look at the fight against tyranny, oppression and the encroachment unto our rights that this fascist leaning NDAA language brings.
This really is the fight of our lifetime! Don't miss this one!
