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.
“All Gaul is divided into three parts”, said Julius Caesar; except that there were many, many other ways to describe the diversity; incredibly complex intermixes. Nonetheless, in that spirit of wonderful Freshman English Composition 101 over-simplication.
On their deathbeds, these will likely be their final (beyond loved/liked ones) thoughts on eternity:
Intellecual Liberals: Fuck it, if there is a God, that He can’t take a joke.
Emotional Liberals: I did the best I could; goodbye.
Center (left or right) on their way to the (revisionist) innermost circle of Hell: I have no idea what's coming, but this death stuff hurts!
Neocons: Hopefully this is the end, else I’m screwed.
Randian Conservatives/Libertarins: Hopefully this is the end, else I’m screwed.
Social Conservatives: Now on to my reward because this life was shit.
Corporate conservatives: Hopefully, this is the end; or, if not, Hell has been over-demonized and I’m looking forward to an afterlife of entrepreneurial, tax-subsidized opportunities to screw everyone else.
