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:

This is an intentionally short diary due in part to subject matter, and due in part to the simplicity of the Republican/Conservative/Teaparty mindset.

Republicans have shown themselves to be extremely capable of frothing their base through forceful repetition, and/or emphasis on words that promote their ideas or dismiss others as undesirable.

A case in point is the use of the words Job Killing as modifier to many Democratic proposals including:

Job Killing tax increases

Job Killing cuts to our military

Job Killing climate change legislation

I believe that should adopt this method of repetition and emphasis to help advance the most important public safety initiative I have come across in my lifetime, gun control.


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).

Simply put,  let us encourage and put forth the modification of the words "gun control" in the following manner:

The American people deserve that our representatives put aside their differences and work towards provision of common sense, life saving gun control policies.

That's not so hard, is it?

         Common Sense            Life Saving          Gun Control

Now close your eyes and imagine President Obama saying the words:

Americans have decided, no Americans have demanded, that they are ready for common sense, life saving gun control measures.

Carry on.
