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:

As others have recently helped to identify, Pete Sessions is the US Representative who has so little respect for the President that he cannot stand to look upon him.  I think we now know why:

That's right.  The Keystone XL Pipeline.  How dare we Democrats oppose such a corporate friendly proposition.  And who profits from the Keystone XL Pipeline?


Why are the Koch brothers funding every effort against Obama?  To get what they want.  The Tea Party fight against the Affordable Care Act is only a means to an end.  We have a couple of billionaires who cannot stand that President Obama will not give them what they want due to the environmental destruction that will result.  So they have joined their money with those who might lose profits due to ACA in order to create a fake 'movement' against Obamacare.  This is simple and transparent extortion.  Koch will continue to ratchet up the rhetoric until they get what they want, regardless of the cost to Democracy.  

It reminds me of movements in the 1930's.

We must not cave on the Keystone XL Pipeline or the ACA.  The light of day is the death to ignorance and obfuscation.


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).
