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:

rant on...

I sincerely hope Kos was being facetious with his post this morning.  Aside from the fact that a hostile nation on our Southern border is absolutely unacceptable (Imagine Iran where Texas is) this issue was settled almost 150 years ago.  Abraham Lincoln himself (along with about 600,000 other Americans) died so that our Union would not perish from the earth.  Their sacrifice is not something that's old and dusty that can be ignored as mere statistical history.  Their sacrifice is as new and fresh as each breath of air I take into my lungs.  They did not die in vain.  I don't give a flying rats ass if every man woman and child in Texas and Louisiana signs those fucking petitions, it's not going to happen.

There are 15 U.S. Military bases in Texas along with the Johnson Space Center and 4 more U.S. Military bases in Louisiana...  Does anyone think we're going to just hand all that over free and clear to a bunch of fucking traitors?  I don't think so.  So, all of you people telling these Secessionists not to let the door hit them in the ass need to STFU!

...end rant
