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.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Let us begin with 3 BIG CHEERS for Sen. Wendy Davis of Fort Worth... Without a doubt, I am now fully aware of, why I do not like most Republican lawmakers... (Why?) Because they are a wild bunch of bullies and brutes and want everyone to adhere to their (convoluted) way of thinking whether or not it 'WILL' hurt people and help erode our freedoms just a little bit more! http://www.newsday.com/...
BTW, talk about bullies, John Roberts completes 30 year mission to kill Voting Rights Act and Two Hours After The Supreme Court Gutted The Voting Rights Act, Texas AG Suppresses Minority Voters…
When you have a (Supreme)court that has a majority (Republicans) rule, making decisions that will hurt We-The-People ensuring their clan (more like Klan as in KKK –‘Welcome to the Ku Klux Klan, Bringing a Message of Hope and Deliverance to WHITE CHRISTIAN America!’) will always win. And with these "R"wins our Republic WILL slowly morph into one of the following:
Totalitarianism - In a totalitarian society the government holds absolute control over all aspects of the lives of its people. A set of beliefs is imposed on the people, who have to conform or face unpleasant consequences.
Fascism - Fascism is usually headed by a dictator. It involves total government control of political, economic, cultural, religious and social activities.
Oligarchy - An oligarchy in which only a few wealthy people hold power. A republic may be an oligarchy if just a few people have the RIGHT TO VOTE.
Plutocracy - rule by the wealthy. The decision by the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to strike down a key part of the Voting Rights Act has "pushed us back into a kind of plutocracy where the rich shall inherit the earth," former U.N. Ambassador and Congressman Andrew Young says.
And I am not, I repeat, I am NOT whistling Dixie. thinkingblue
