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.

  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:

I'm telling you NOW, YOU better remember 2010. And you better start remembering right now.

 Seriously, what? You think we just forgot to vote that year or something? Newsflash, that wasn't it. You see, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one pissed off. Count yourself lucky I didn't vote against you or just, didn't vote at all in 2010. I was pretty unhappy with you folks.
 I mean really, you have the House, the Senate AND the Presidency, and we end up with a law saying people MUST support the lifestyle of health care executive leeches like Bill McGuire?
 I expected better.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

 Look Dems, I know it's a hard job, harder I'm sure than I can imagine. But it pays well, has health and dental, AND retirement. It's a better gig than most of us have.
AND, you wanted it.
 So, now that your contract has been extended to 2014, let me warn you. I expect alot from you for you to earn my continued support. I suggest you make strenuous efforts to better explain the issues we face and the ideals of the Democratic party, to all the people and not just the plugged in and the supporters. Us regular folk can understand if you explain it well. I suggest you do a better job of fighting back against the dishonesty of the opposition, a MUCH better job.
 But more than anything, I suggest you avoid making deals that piss off everyone, especially your base!  (Personally, I think you got lucky the opposition had such terrible candidates and marketing in 2012).

 I'll be watching. I'm hopeful. There's some big deals coming up soon now and as you go about that work I'm begging you to 'Remember 2010'.

 I'm not sure how many times more I can say to myself, 'Screw it, if they won't fight for me, I won't vote for them' before I don't.

 I'm serious. I am NOT kidding. No Grand Bargain.
I've been paying for the wealthy since Reagan and I'm damned tired out it.
(That's right, we figured it out. When you raise withholding taxes, borrow the surpluses from those program to cover the deficit as you give tax breaks to the rich, it means I'm paying for those tax cuts.)
 The Romneys of the world should be contributing more than 14% or less. You say you like the Buffet rule. Well so do I. How bout it Dems?

 Get some things done that please your base. That's gonna work out ALOT better for you in 2014 than pissing us off again.

Seriously, I would strongly advise you to 'Remember 2010'.
