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.
We have two weeks to save the United States. I'm calling for every atheist, skeptic, scientist, university professor, the black community, and any one else who can clearly see what is at stake. We need to fill the streets, asap. One more time for emphases.
We need to fill the streets, asap.
We need to give a strong clear signal that the current behavior is not acceptable. The christian right has this nation by the balls and it will not let go. We are scared of them. This needs to reverse, today.
I predicted the shutdown. I predicted the disaster that is healthcare.gov website. I hope I'm wrong. But I'm not. The default is coming.
We're losing the war of words. The media is part of the problem. We are the ones we've been waiting for. Where do we start? I'm ready.
And now for the word that no one else will utter. "Panic." A run on the banks. Remember Lehman Brothers? Who will save us this time? A bankrupt nation?
It's up to us. March now, or line up for soup after it's too late.
This is what we're dealing with (the enablers). Wake up, America!
