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:

As you may already know, Mexican-Americans make up almost 70% of the entire Latino population pie.  We are the bulk of the "Latino" group -- and as such ... Mexican Americans ought to take a deeper look into Coca Cola as the thirsty summer season approaches.

Mexican Americans also ought to consider more Mexican-friendly soft drinks, too, and Jarritos is looking better and better to me as a mom, and as a consumer deciding what soft drinks to buy for my children.

Allow me to esplain myself ...

America's Voice has identified the below people as part of the Gang of Hate with regard to the immigration reform bill that is being discussed:

Yet, we see Coca-Cola giving to anti-immigrant politicians like Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn.

In fact,  Coca-Cola continues to give more in contributions to Republican politicians over the Democratic politicians.

See below Open Secrets image:

Coca-Cola Co Contributions to Federal Candidates

Total to Democrats: $167,000
Total to Republicans: $237,000

Total to Democrats: $72,500
Total to Republicans: $108,500

So there ya have it, mi gente!

I encourage you to drink less Coke and drink from companies who don't backstab us.
