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:

and the extremists they are in bed with, this ought to answer it.  It's the latest email solicitation from the assholes.  The actual email had a bunch of pictures in it of past speakers (Oliver North (arms-seller to Iran!), Sara Palin (um, just too much fail to go into), Rick Perry (oops!), Newty Gingrich, and Snott Walker).  This is rather tame for the NRA propaganda, but they do get their fear-mongering on.

"We need a zillion of you there!" and the next breath "Get tickets now as space is limited".  It's just amazing to me that people fall for this shit.  See below for the email.


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).

Dear __,

There is one thing that will show Barack Obama and anti-gun politicians how Americans really feel about our freedoms.

And that's the sight of tens of thousands of NRA members joining together to STAND AND FIGHT for FREEDOM!

That is why I need you to join me for NRA's Stand and Fight Weekend, which will take place May 3 - 5 in Houston, Texas.
You won't find a more fun-filled and exciting event like this on the planet. And this year, our annual weekend will take on historic importance. The survival of our freedom is at stake and I need you there with me!

Registration and tickets for this extraordinary weekend are ON SALE NOW! Go to www.NRAAM.org or call 1-877-672-7632 to get yours today.
Our big weekend features NRA's world-famous Guns, Gear and Outfitter Show…and is filled with banquets, auctions, games, prizes, and fun for you and your family!

But there are two very important events that I'm asking you - as an NRA leader - to make sure you attend as my special guest.
The first is NRA-ILA's Leadership Forum. Join me and NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox along with our nation's top Second Amendment leaders in government, the media, and the entertainment industry…as we build our battle plan for defeating Obama's sweeping attack on our gun rights.

Nearly every media outlet in the country will be covering this year's Leadership Forum. They'll be counting our numbers. I need you there with me to help send a clear message to every politician in America that we are united, strong, and ready to fight for our freedom!!!

And because your attendance at this year's Forum is so vitally important to the immediate future of our Second Amendment rights, tickets are only $10 each.  

The second event that I'm urging you to attend is NRA's Stand and Fight Rally.

On this very special evening, one of NRA's greatest friends - Glenn Beck - will give an exclusive and eye-opening presentation for NRA members like you.

I need you to be a part of making Saturday night's rally with Glenn in Houston the biggest showing of NRA member power in history! We need to fill the room and let the nation see the strength in our numbers…and hear the thunder of our voices and applause!

Tickets to this extraordinary event are only $30 each. And because I want you to bring as many family and friends as you possibly can, you may purchase two tickets for just $50 - or four tickets for only $80!

Seating is very limited, so please order your tickets today!  

The fight you and I are waging right now against Barack Obama and his gun ban allies is unlike any other I've ever seen.

Winning will take every ounce of effort by every NRA member in our ranks. And winning starts with you and your presence in Houston.

I need you to play an active role in the biggest grassroots uprising for freedom that America has ever seen!

I need you to be there with me on Saturday night, chanting for freedom when Glenn Beck fires up thousands of our NRA faithful!

I need you to STAND AND FIGHT with me in Houston!

Thank you for everything you do for NRA and our great nation. I look forward to seeing you soon!
