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.
A once popular song by Janet Jackson. I wish that could actually become the theme music for the internet site. That is basically the bottom line that I surmise from reading post after post about "He has betrayed seniors" , "There will be cuts to this and that", "I wish __(fill in the blank) was president because they wouldn't allow this to happen", and on and on.
Let's face hard facts here, NOTHING has actually happened. NOTHING has been agreed to. NOTHING that the president puts forward will be agreed to. All the moons and stars, and lollipops and ponies will not make the "Do nothing" GOP agree to a damn thing. So what is the outrage about? I get it. Things may happen down the road. But what does it gain all of us to get wind up in knots over things that HAVEN'T happened?
I am not down with ALL things President Obama, but I am not going to call the president names, throw temper tantrums because he doesn't do everything I may like or agree with. Truth of the matter is that he has done a LOT of things RIGHT. It's definately more than I could have ever expected Bush or Romney to perform in 8 years. Have we forgotten all of his accomplishments so soon? I truly feel that there is nothing that he can do right to please people. It's always something. So if could say one thing to the president, I would say "do what you know is right", which in my opinion is everything he HAS done up to this point.
Novemember 6th it was "Obama, Obama" and November 7th it was "NObama".
I didn't write this to get agreements with my sentiment (which I know I won't), I wrote this so that at least people can be civil in their criticisms and hopefully be respectful and remember the things that he HAS done for you!!!
