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:

Unless you want to be monitored by the Department of Homeland Secuirty.  If you didn't think we had arrived at Orwell's 1984 yet, you can rest easy.. We are there!

A freedom of  informaiton request has forced the department of Homeland Security  to release a list of key words and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and other on-line media for signs of terrorist and other threats agasint the U.S.

A chilling online article by the Daily Mail outlines the offending words....follow me over the orange squiggly, I think you are in for a suprise...


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).

The intriguing list includes obvious choices such as : attack, Al-Qaeda, dirty bomb and terrorism, alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like : pork, cloud, team, and Mexico.

Released under a freedomm of information act request, the informatin sheds new light on how govoernment analysts are instructed to patrol the internet searching for domestic and external threats


The article goes on to include the entire list, The sub-categories (with some of the words)  include: DOMESTIC SECURITY:  first responder, initiatve, drill, excercise, and cops

HAZMAT AND NUCLEAR: cloud, leak, plume, exposure and infection

HEALTH CONCERN:  outbreak, exposure, pork, mutaiton, and agriculture

INFRASTRUCTURE SECURITY: Amtrak, port, dock, bridge, and grid

SOUTHWEST BORDER VIOLENCE : Mexico, San Diego ( where I live!), cartel, Colombia, and border

I mean you get the drift.  You better watch out, that seemingly innocent word you are typing on whatever social networking site you are on could trigger a homeland security investigation!    To all you gun nuts out there worried about the Govt. taking away your beloved firearms...that's the least of your worries..  If you are worried about Govt. intrusion, you don't have to look any further then your facebook page! they don't need your guns , they already have you by the cojones..  

You see, that's what we say here in San Diego  because it is so close to the border of Mexico where I live with my wife from Colombia  OOPS I better stop typing....

11:43 AM PT: Thanks for the rec list!  Sorry about all the typos, I was laughing so hard, I couldn't see straight..
