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:

Received this e-mail today from Senator Tom Udall (D. NM):
In the 20th century, American manufacturing created our middle class.

Today, the manufacturing sector here in New Mexico employs tens of thousands of workers and pumps billions of dollars into our economy -- and in a state that has seen more than its fair share of tough times, those manufacturing jobs are helping fuel our economic recovery.

But there’s still work to do, both here in New Mexico and in Washington D.C., if we want to keep producing the kinds of green technology and manufacturing jobs that will make us competitive in a global economy.

Join me and my colleagues and let Washington know that it’s time to stop focusing on manufactured crises and start focusing on manufacturing jobs. Sign our petition today.


New Mexico has the potential to be a major hub for the kinds of green technology and aerospace manufacturing jobs that will propel our country to success in today’s global economy. But the gridlock in Congress is stalling our progress.

We need to be investing in new technology and innovation, working to create a manufacturing renaissance rather than fighting damaging partisan battles.

Stand with me and my colleagues in Congress -- it’s past time to get to work on creating jobs:


Thank you for all you do.
