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:

 Are you worried how will you feed your children in November because food stamps are about to be cut off across the country?

  Well fear no more! You can now cash in by selling your body parts!.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

 In all but two quarters since the beginning of 2011, “hair,” “eggs,” or “kidney” have been among the top four autofill results for the Google search query, “I want to sell my...,” according to Nicholas Colas, chief market strategist at New York-based ConvergEx Group, which provides brokerage and trading-related services for institutional investors.
 Thousands of Americans have cashed in on this lucrative side-business by selling unused parts of their anatomy. You can to!

  Of course you should do some research and find out the going prices.

  I know what you are thinking: There must be a catch.

 Oh, sure. There are "laws" that "regulate" this sort of thing. But when has that ever stopped big money from getting what it wants?

 That's one reason Goodwin says selling organs has been illegal since 1984. She's written about the huge black market this has spawned.

"I find it absolutely ironic that we have such a successful system that involves money exchanges in that domain where it's so intimate, the creating of human life, but we don't allow that same kind of process to take place for human organs," says Goodwin.

She believes the U.S. should reconsider old laws to potentially allow the sale of organs like kidneys, which people only need one of to survive. It would remove thousands from painful and expensive dialysis while also saving lives.

Gawd gave you a spare kidney, right? Some rich c*cksucker is willing to pay big dollars for it. Why not sell your spare to him?
   It's not like you'll need that kidney to filter food byproducts from your bloodstream because without food stamps you won't be eating anyway.

   Of course you will lose your minimum wage job while you recover from having your kidney removed. And you won't be able to afford a doctor if you get an infection.
  So I guess there is a catch after all.

  Hurry and sell your body parts today!
