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:

Remember Paul Ryan, washer-of-clean dishes, serial liar and devotee of excruciatingly bad writer and charlatan Ayn Rand? Sure you do, the way you remember holes in the road and places that gave you food poisoning.

Well, the GOP's alleged 'numbers guy' is back with a new plan to gut Medicaid and Welfare.

Entitled The War On Poverty: 50 Years Later, the report from Ryan and his gaggle of innumerate parasites  is pretty much what you expect: cuts, cuts and more cuts.

Ryan is quoted as saying that the report is a prelude to the House GOP’s budget...no, really, don't laugh... and a: "preemptive rebuttal to the president’s budget...", because, of course it is.

Mmm-mmm...you can already taste that wing-nutty goodness, can't you? So, what's in store for the non-rich segment of the population?

Find out below the Boehner-orange cloud of GOP fail:


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).

According to Little Paulie Objectivist (the numbers guy, roundly mocked by Nobel-winning numbers-guy Paul Krugman for...well, not understanding numbers):

“It’s time for an adult conversation as well as time to try to pass good, conservative legislation that can make a real difference.”
Now, see...we already have a problem: it can either be good legislation, or it can be conservative legislation; it can't be both. But do go on:
Medicaid, which provides health coverage to low-income families, is the object of a sharply worded review. “Medicaid coverage has little effect on patients’ health,” the report says, adding that it imposes an “implicit tax on beneficiaries,” “crowds out private insurance” and “increases the likelihood of receiving welfare benefits.”
Brilliant! Health care has little effect on health! Have I got that right? No wonder Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) says: “Paul Ryan remains our big-ideas guy.."

Well, Tom, Paul...you just keep those 'big ideas' coming. We know how well they played last time around.

Maybe this time (with a bit of luck) we can finally be rid of your party of spiteful bigots, buffoons, Koch errand-boys and lunatics.
