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.
Rachael Maddow outdoes herself once again with her November 7th 2012 show. She talks and itemizes all the fears that we (those who can critically THINK, to the GOP Tea Party's dismay) had before the election. The FEARS of a Romney win were astronomical and numerous; A conservative pick of Supreme Court Judges that would render SCOTUS, picayune because every judgment would be predictable; A fear that Roe vs. Wade would be overturned along with the annihilation of Planned Parenthood. Romney promised to do away with Medicare as we know it, thus, handing the elderly a $6000 voucher and telling them, GO FEND FOR YOURSELF and find a Health Insurance Company that's willing to insure your sick old body. A genuine fear for women who envisioned themselves back in the 1950's imprisoned by their own bodies, looking for a clothes-hanger or a back alley, to solve their insurmountable dilemma (and in many cases alone, no help from the one who was instrumental in delivering her into this state of extreme distress, just like during the ‘50's, feeling a cultural shame that was, without a doubt, not hers alone).
There was so much apprehension on election night but in some strange way, it wasn’t all bad because it drove people to stand in voting lines for hours, braving bad weather to cast their vote, at the same time hoping beyond hope that they would not be turned away due to Republicans trying to disenfranchise the electorate who vote Democratic. Thank all that is good, it's over and President Obama won reelection and a special Thank You to Rachael for enlightenment, telling it like it is. thinkingblue
