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:

Sequester.  All this theater.  The plutocrats are laughing all the way to the Banks.  The latest stage in this saga began with Bush in 2000.  They stole an election.  Then the program was begun. Some even believe 9/11  2001 was a part of the scheme.  I don't need to go that far but could see it being possible. The scheme is simple.  Robert Reich has talked about it in part.  Run up the debt and then use it to dismantle the entire social program.  Make government totally useless other than how it serves the plutocracy.  It is here.  It is ironic that they used Obama to usher in the final stages.  Debs, Keller, London, Haywood, so many others told us.  No one listened.  The stakes are high now because collapse is coming.  They have to get all they can before there is nothing left to get.  I know you true believers think I am silly.  It hurts to be right on these matters.  Read on below and we can see more of what is coming.


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).

There is no longer a government.  If you are still believing the Wizard is real look behind the curtain please.  Oh they distracted us with the Violence against Women act.  They could afford that.  The Supreme Court is a bad joke.  How much more do you need to convince you that it is over?  Congressional  districts are gerrymandered.  The Senate is locked.  Am I making all this up?

Meanwhile the whole real world we need to survive in has been totally ravaged.  Water, air, soil, seed, food,  GMOs, Banks, jobs, resource depletion, etc., etc.

What is it that we are fighting for here?  I read and I study and I get no clue.  As a rabid pacifist I really resent being told that I am asking for violent revolution.  I also resent being accused of having posed no solutions.  I even wrote a book spelling it all out.  Meanwhile I read and study what is written here.  I see nothing that even recognizes the state we are in let alone anything that proposes solutions.

Can someone tell me what I am missing?
