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.
Bill Young R-FL has got to go. He has been in office 42 years and is the longest serving republican in congress. He won reelection with 57 % of the vote but this vote is coming out of tradition and habit. Young is no longer effective and his area went strongly for Obama
Today was just the latest in a series of recent episodes where Young appeared unable to properly deal with his public responsibilities. Here is an account from Creative Loafing on Young's skirmish with protesters requesting his stance on taxes and the fiscal cliff.
In July this year, Rep. Young was caught on video telling a young man who asked him to support an increase in the minimum wage to "Get A Job"
In September this year, Young was insistent that the Occupy Movement was after him and had tried to break into his home but the police who checked the scene said there was no evidence of forced entry.
The Democratic National Congressional Committee is focusing on Rep. Young seat as one of the top four most vulnerable seats in 2014. Let's make it happen!
