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:

In this controlled environment, I tend to essentially see level headed folks writing pretty cutting edge articles (of course, Progressives tend to be in that lot).  But in the netherrealms that is Yahoo and elsewhere, ignorance reigns supreme (Ok, at least it's running rampant).  Thus, I give you a few of these gems...they are what we are up against, and in some cases, a good laugh.  Feel free to laugh (or weep).


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).

What "The West" is trying to do is disgusting to contemplate - they should leave each nation to live however they want; however it is even more important to understand that there are four points of view to consider in this 'not-so-hot debate': morals, politics, religion, and legal.

Morally - gayism is stupid and just plain disgusting.
Politically - gayism is whatever the politicians say it is once we have let them in power
Religiously - Well, anyone can start any religion today and label it with it's own unique set of rules, but the oldest and more prominent religions label gayism as decadent.
Legally - Legally, it is what the Constitution says it is... which is $#!t really because politicians simply find ways to bend and amend the Constitution to whatever their whims and potentials are.

So, quite simply, to each his own, and 'The West' needs to respect that.

Any questions?

(Comment from this article about the global divide of tolerance of homosexuality).
They will probably let it die. That should be a relief to the husband who evidently doesn't want another child. Especially since he is not man enough to raise a chid with handicaps.
(From this about the fetus of Marlise Munoz ...you'd have to be appalled, even if you were a pro-lifer, about this callous comment).
As a two-tour Vietnam Army veteran, and living in Arizona for the past 17 years, I can tell you John Mc Cain is no Vietnam War hero. He was unfortunate to be a prisoner of war, as were thousands of others, and has a special status as a POW survivor under horrendous conditions and torture. There are 59,000 names of the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C.., and there were about 90 Medals of Honor awarded both to living and posthumously Vietnam Veterans. Those are the heroes, folks. he is no "Maverick" (a name he gave himself). He is one of many who serve as examples of why we need term limits, time to come back home to Cottonwood, AZ.
(From this little gem, I guess you can't even be "veteran" or "POW" enough!)

I'll end it here for now...beddy-bye boze time (and bonus points if you know what iconic 80s work that I stole it from!).  There's more where that came from (which, if you think about it, is kind of depressing!).
