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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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:

You say we should avenge 9/11
We should invade Afghanistan!
You say while we’re at it, how about Saddam?
Now mullahs might get nukes, so let’s bomb Iran!

CHORUS:
Blank check: How much should we give?
Math check: A trillion dollars gone!
Truth check: how big is the lie?
Math check: a thousand for each eye!

You say we can’t afford to spend for education;
We can’t afford to spend another dime.
You say it costs too much for the old and sick,
But we should make a lot more people do time!

Blank check: how much should we give?
Math check: a trillion dollars gone!
Blank check: tax cuts for the rich
Math check: A million for each sonofabitch!

BRIDGE
Interest Rates are low,
Profits are sky high,
But twelve million unemployed -
Blame it on the black guy!
Saboteurs run wild,
Banksters looting too,
The rich are getting richer
By giving us the screw.

You say we’ve got to help the Job Creators;
We’ve gotta help you worship money more!
You say you’ve got a five point plan for jobs,
But it’s just your plan to rob the poor!

Blank check: How much should we give?
Math check: A trillion dollars gone!
Truth check: how big is the lie?
Math check: a thousand for each eye!
Blank check: how much should we give?
Math check: a trillion dollars gone!
Blank check: tax cuts for the rich
Math check: A million for each sonofabitch!
