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.

  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:

Intro

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).

Once upon a time, I had a little lobby.
Government gun opponents soon
Learned never to fight it and if they did
They rarely ever won –
You don't take on the NRA!
So if the man with the mandate
Tries to ban guns ...
Well this is what I’m gonna say

Blame it on Games!
Don’t blame it on me!
Oh-oh — it’s nobody’s fault
But we need somebody to burn!

Blame it on Games!
Please … don’t … blame it on me!
It’s nobody’s fault
But it just seems to be their turn!

Well if there was a guy who was
Real messed up
And he killed a buncha kids
They would always bring it up
“He used a gun” –
An AR-15 rifle hundred rounds in a big magazine
And then you can run down the news shows,
Calling dead teachers heroes
Gun’s obscene, I wanna scream
Don’t be so horrified
So you’re not mortified.

Blame it on Games!
Don’t blame it on me!
Oh-oh — it’s nobody’s fault
But we need somebody to burn!

Blame it on Games!
Please … don’t … blame it on me!
It’s nobody’s fault
But it just seems to be their turn!

I think I’ve lived a little too long
With the yes men around
I think I’m losing my touch
From talking to shooters for so long.
Oh and I’ve finally been accused.
When they say to your face
That some guns gotta go
I used to put ‘em in their place
Then I’d try to rub it in.

But every single crime
They get a little stronger,
What can I say this time
To stall them longer?

“Blame it on Games!
Don’t blame it on me!”
Oh-oh — it might be our fault
So we need somebody to burn!

Blame it on Games!
Please … don’t … blame it on me!
It might be our fault
But it’s best if it not our turn!
