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.

Issue: Your Bill is Overdue
$55,172,413.79 - the overdue amount you owe the US Treasury for your treasonous shut-down of the US government costing the taxpayers a grand total of 24 BILLION DOLLARS. PAY UP, DEADBEAT! If you think this is over and forgotten, or that somehow your debt will be forgiven, THINK AGAIN. You and your Tea Party terrorist turncoats, following your twisted, brain-dead leader, Ted Cruz, will be held accountable until this debt is PAID IN FULL. We, the American people, will never forgive your temper tantrum carried out at our expense, and your treason will be remembered until the very end of time. We will not relent in collecting this debt until we see you and all your labotomized zombie friends standing in the unemployment line, begging for food stamps, wondering where your next decent meal will come from. My little mental munchkin, THIS DOES NOT END WELL FOR YOU OR ANY OF YOUR MORON FRIENDS.
