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:

Sen. Cruz took $70,000.00 from Goldman Sachs for his 2012 campaign.  Goldman Sachs was the fourth largest contributor to his campaign.  Here's a quote from an article in Bloomberg that was published on February 6, 2013:

"Goldman Sachs Group Inc. President Gary Cohn said he’s 'bullish' on China... 'You can absolutely still make money off Chin'ese banks,' Cohn, 52, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Susan Li in Hong Kong yesterday, without naming specific banks. 'We are very positive, optimistic, but cautious, about where China’s going.'

So, Sen. Cruz, why haven't you returned the money from Goldman Sachs, coming as it did from a company doing hundreds of millions of dollars of business with the Communist Chinese?  Why didn't you know about this connection?  And if you did know, why did you take the money?

The question must be asked: Is Cruz knowingly taking money from the Communist Chinese government, even if that money has been laundered through an intermediary, and is he attacking Sen. Hagel and others to cover up his own hidden agenda?  I think an investigation is called for. It may turn out that the people of Texas unwittingly elected a mole for the Chinese Government to the U. S. Senate.

This diary, of course, is completely satirical in nature, though the $70,000.00 donation and Goldman's relationship with China are factual.  


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).
