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.

  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:

I had a lunch offer yesterday. The restaurant she offered to take me to is one of my favorites.I turned her down. I was too busy getting phone numbers of Republican  Congress members to pass on to you.
My friend noticed I had only a few comments and when I glanced early Saturday morning,
I would not have one new comment. I tried to explain to her excellent writers are here,I
am a work in progress. I was missing the point,anyone can find a phone number if they want to.
My friend reminded me I was active in an earlier time. People on "our" side don"t make pests of themselves or would be willing to pester congress folks in all 50 states. Occupy folks would march,but they smell bad and Republicans would laugh.
My friend may be right. I may spend hours gathering phone numbers that you could easily do yourself. I am trying to get someone in this Country to get what I am SCREAMING!
The snakes in Congress started with a reduction in food for the needy. In Oregon,1 out
of every 5 households receive food assistance. In future budgets,fewer and fewer people will be allowed ANY food help and the amount will be less each budget.
The 1% own the Republican party and the rest read comic books and watch Fox.
Unless  people who care become proactive, the bastards win.
The Tea Party folks are as evil a bunch as I have ever seen. They,however,are IN power. We who bitch and moan are outside looking in.
Great writers should shine a mirror on what the bastards are doing.We then should not wait untl election day to change things,the sqeeky wheel needs to be loud. Martin Luther King complained about apathy and apathy is still an enemy in 2013.
I see a tired President. What other president has had a major television network whose
sole job is anti-Obama 24 hours a day 7 days a week? An entire industry is thriving selling hate Obama everything.
I will keep gathering phone numbers and passing them on. Get involved,please. Don"t let the bastards hurt this Country and our families anymore.
