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:

The reports are still coming in, but we have reason to believe that there is a potential terrorist threat scheduled for tonight in the United States!

As we have been warned for years, The only way to stop terrorists is to maintain large stocks of weapons and to vigilantly protect against any and all threats!

(News on the flip.)

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).

I Understand that NORAD has just called a press conference, and I'm linking to the Live feed right now.

Shocking, isn't it!  The thought that somebody could consider attacking American Airspace...

WAIT!  Wait, I'm just getting a report that there has been a subject taken into custody!
Well, the good news is that we will ensure that this man will reveal the extent of his plot!

Truly terrifying.  Well, at least we can all sleep soundly knowing that the government is around to defend our rights against such horrifying criminals who disseminate terrorist products like Video Games! (Just like the NRA has always warned us!)  Wait, wait, you're telling me that the NRA actually MADE video games????  Oh wait, nobody bought them because they really, really sucked.

I guess if One has to come right down to it... there's really no comparison.  I mean, we had 3,000 dead and we felt the need to turn our airlines into an armed camp.  Even though the odds of dying to a "Terrorist Attack" are roughly... uhm.   1 in 1.7 million.  

Well, it can't be that bad, I mean, what are the odds of dying to a gunshot?  More likely than dying in a Car Crash?   Well, not YET...  Besides, it's only 85 a day...

The logical conclusion, to judge from the track record of the US, Is to set up SAM sites at every point at which an aircraft could enter US airspace.  That would help solve the jobs crisis by giving jobs to defense contractors, and would be a part of the defense budget, so nobody could ever cut it.

Or, you know, we could get rid of the guns, but let's not be SILLY.
