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:

In a powerful way- this has helped me A LOT- in regards to my input- not only with Kos- but even my scathing articles -

I must attack policies - not people. - many of my articles have been biting political satire- venomous- esp towards Rush L.- perhaps sadly, those have been the most popular among readers on other sites.

In regards to my accusations towards others' possible hypocrisy- again, sadly- it comes from a cynicism borne of exp w others-- ugh, bad experiences- I delve into motives perhaps mistakenly.. and too deeply. but..

WITHOUT vested interest- I support this cause fully, probably a hell of a lot more than anyone knows-  I always have, always will. Why? because it is the right thing to do. nothing more, nothing less-

Many many people, either knowingly or unknowingly- support polices because they have a personal interest- whether it be estate tax, DOMA, social sec, or medicaid. Because of my own circumstance- for better or worse, i have no vested interest at this point in my life- and when I say no vested interest, I mean, literally, no vested interest other than moral compass (which makes my comment all the worse).

And still-  through this disconnect I have been able to see through a clearer lens. Again, sadly, I have abused that right by being a no-holes-barred spewer of whatever came to mind at the moment, without regard to others, and without regards to others' possible perception of me- whether correct or mistaken.

I am pleased with all interactions, even those negative-  and surely hope that this response should indicate that your thoughts/feelings ARE important to me. I apologize for the comment, and am regretful that many probably, deservedly, and yet mistakenly feel that it defines me or my views. I would not have been comfortable without ponying up.

God bless all
