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:

 


Welcome to the September 27, 2013 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!

 

This image of Sisyphus is how it seems to feel to deal with Stones.  My heart goes out to TexDem ... and to all those others who have had to deal with them.  [Of course, we men can only image what it's like to push an 8 lb. baby out, but that's another diary for another day!]

I fortunately, have not had this experience ... and am grateful that I haven't.

But, man, it sure seems to be this painful to wake up a lot of republicans about the reality of our world. I know, let's talk about protecting Florida from the ravages of increasing sea level, without talking about climate change and we can do or should do about that!  I know ... let's talk about not having babies without discussing birth control or abortion!  I know ... let's talk about protecting people from getting sick without discussing vaccination!  I know ... let's talk about reducing hunger in this country without discussing economics and inequality!  Man ... it doesn't end, does it!

Anyways, to TexDem and the others, good luck with your health.  To us, good luck getting a significant part of our population to move into the 21st century ... a wonderful world of science and medicine!  And now for the fun!

Today's Mojo Friday diary is Mojo Friday - Stoned III - Edition

The Mojo Friday Postgame is a statistical analysis of the Mojo Friday diary that is posted every Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. ET. For further info please check out  Jez's 'Official' "Mojo Friday Snecktionary"  MKinTN posted a diary to help everyone achieve greater success called How to Succeed at Mojo Friday Without Really Trying.
