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:

I'm trying to make sense of this Chained CPI proposal from President Obama.  Maybe I just don't want to believe what my eyes are telling me.


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).

Here's what is playing out in my head along with Elvis is really still alive.

- PBO offers to cut Social Security and has the luxury of never needing to campaign for office again.

- The entire country knows about it immediately. Newscast, Newspapers & Internet sites across the country use it as the lead story. Try to find 1 senior citizen who hasn't heard about it.

- Most of the country gets really pissed off.

- The country starts to focus like a laser on the proposal and wants to know who is going to protect them from these cuts and this President.  Republican constituents never need much of an excuse for some good ole Obama bashing.

- Republicans in congress praise the cuts as a good start but still need more. (Democrats make sure and get it on video)

- Democrats make LOTS OF NOISE and fight like crazy to stop the cuts and trash those vile Republicans for forcing them on the country.  

- Republicans and Democrats hold town halls.  Remember the rowdy 2010 town halls.  Republicans get screamed at while Democrats even propose raising benefits?

- Midterm election time.

- Democrats pull out video tapes.  Play them over and over and over and over...

- Country finally sees Democrats are the ones standing up for them and Republicans protecting Wall Street etc... at all costs.

- Republicans in congress become extinct.

- :)
