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 GOPbagger junta ruling the state continues to run down the ALEC checklist, as dictated to them by their big-buck buddies:

-- Approving a $600 million tax money giveaway for a new arena to billionaire sports franchise owner? CHECK

-- Union-busting RTW laws? CHECK

-- Emergency Manager laws to take away local government from those stupid lazy coloreds?  (Despite a decisive election result one month ago repealing a nearly identical law) CHECK *

-- More charter-school horseshit to take away money from public education and give it to the Billy Bob Bible Beating Charter Schools? CHECK *

-- Abortion laws!! Gotta stick our GOPbagger speculums up the hoo-has of those uppity Vagina-Americans. CHECK

-- GUN NUTS!! YES you can carry your iron in your local Day Care!! CHECK

And of course Governor Dipstick, the Smiling Nerd, will sign them all.

He's a good little puppy dog. He's done his master's bidding. He expects a nice juicy meaty treat for Christmas.

* Also of course to allow the fire-sale selloff of public properties (especially public school properties) to their strip-and-loot henchmen.

The beat goes on
