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:

The Black Friday job actions were successful in that they drew attention to the plight of Walmart workers. The sad new is Walmart booked record sales with the expanded hours on Thursday night.

Destroy a family gathering or make a few extra sales does not even rise to the level of a serious questions to the Barons of Bentonville Arkansas. The Walton family have ammassed wealth equal to 48% of the US population (oh so close to Mittens magic 47%) yet they strive for more and more.

How you can help the plight of the common man below the Squiggle.


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).

For now, Christmas Day is still safe as a true holiday. Thanksgiving night was safe once too. The corporate greed machine will grind up and spit out any and all who stand in the way of profits.

This Christmas Eve we need to say "STOP ! ! !"

At noon on the 24th, I ask all Walmart employees to walk. I encourage you the Daily Kos reader to spread the word. We need to encourage and enlighten the Walmart workers.

Stop by the store and let them know, one on one. "Walk at noon on Christmas Eve".

As they "roll back" prices, they also roll back weekly hours and reduce availability to receive healthcare. Opening stores on Thanksgiving evening was a line in the sand they crossed and it should be used as a rallying cry to push back against the machine.

Christmas Eve should be a time to be with family and friends, not selling merchandise to last minute gift givers.

"Walk at noon on Christmas Eve"

Pass it on !
