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:

On Monday, thanks to the complicity of Chief Justice John Roberts, President Obama will be sworn in for the fourth time.

Not only will this be an affront to God and the Founding Fathers, but also to the millions of responsible gun owners who are dedicated to protecting retail shoppers from criminals, cartels, drug lords, and evil men.

Try as he might to (hypocritically) wrap himself in the mantle of Ronald Reagan, it's obvious that Obama's disdain for the Second Amendment is part and parcel of his Kenyan anti-colonial world view.

Ever since his first inauguration, he has done everything in his power to destroy capitalism and replace it with a tyrannical dictatorship modeled after Hitler, Stalin and/or Saddam Hussein.

Clearly, the fear of Obama is totally rational.

In her latest legal filing, which is probably the most batshit insane of them all, Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq. claimed that the president we know as Barack Obama may in fact be an Indonesian spy.

[W]idely published pictures of Dr. Scott Inoue, Obama's former classmate, shows Barack Obama as a third grade student in Hawaii in 1969. At the same time official Obama school records show him in Indonesia in 1967-1969 attending school in Jakarta Indonesia under the name Barry Soetoro. It means that from January 1, 1967  til 1969 we could see two distinct individuals: Barry Obama residing in Hawaii and Barry Soetoro residing in Indonesia. We do not know, which one of them came back to the U.S. in 1971.

Recorded interview and recollection of Lia Soetoro Sabah, foster daughter of Ann Dunham and her second husband, Obama's step father Lolo Soetoro, confirms the recollection by Scott Inoue. (Liah Soetoro Sabah died suddenly at the age of 52 before Obama's scheduled visit to Indonesia)

If Barry Soetoro came back, then the question is, what happened to Barry Obama? Is he even alive? A number of high ranking officials of the U.S. Government and the government of Hawaii are complicit in the most egregious crimes, cover up of the forgery, however it might be more than fraud and forgery. If Barry Soetoro came from Indonesia instead of Barry Obama, this is espionage.


Michael Savage, who is even less of a doctor than Orly Taitz, raised some interesting questions about the flu shot.

Asking listeners to put aside his political orientation for a moment, talk-radio host Michael Savage questioned the federal government’s recommendation that citizens get a flu shot.

"Did Harry Reid take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama's lovely family take a flu shot? Did Joe Biden take a flu shot?" Savage asked.

"Which of the mandarins took the flu shot?"

And, in other news...

Don Dwyer, a Republican delegate in the Maryland assembly, blamed gay marriage for his drunken boating accident that resulted in a five-year-old girl's skull being fractured.

Dwyer claims the August 2012 crash was not his fault, even though alcohol was found on his boat and his alcohol limit was three times the legal limit at the time. The politician claims his casual drinking exploded after he separated from his wife of 31 years and after what he called "betrayal" over his stance against same-sex marriage. Two Republicans who he believed would help him stand in the way of marriage equality legislation ended up changing their vote and supporting the bill, which passed (Maryland voters reaffirmed the vote at the ballot in November).

"That betrayal really affected me," he said. "I was physically ill. You pour your heart into an issue like that and it’s devastating."

Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
