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.
Again, today on Facebook, an image that sparked an interesting (critical thinking) debate was posted. On face value (no pun intended) we all conjure up some kind of readymade thought when we think of these two human figures. Not too many of us hoi polloi get to escape the indoctrination we are bombarded with the minute we come out of the uterus and into existence. So whenever an automatic response pops out from within our brain cells, we should all STOP, and analyze it first before the POP goes verbal. thinkingblue Both historical eccentrics have been recorded as having somewhat practical philosophies, although sometimes opposite of one another… Here is a vintage video of Ayn Rand’s appearance on Johnny Carson in 1967. Too bad there is not a video of the man called Jesus verbalizing his philosophy in real time. All his quotes have been manipulated by man, to the point that if he did exist, his own words have all been replaced with propaganda that is solely intended to control the masses.
