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:

North Carolina senate candidate Greg Brannon (R)
When last we mentioned Republican North Carolina Senate candidate, obstetrician and general harbinger of doom Greg Brannon he was lifting his policy statements word-for-word from a Rand Paul website. Now we must mention him again, because he also seems to be lifting things from the deep pool of conservative Republican conspiracy theories that all modern candidates are required to lift things from.

Specifically, he's back to tell us that Australia and Planned Parenthood have a plan to kill three-month-old babies in Florida, because reasons.

Well how far will [it] go? Last year, February 29, 2012, the Journal of Ethics in Australia, they debated that. They said we already know abortion is fine, why stop in the womb? Why not three months after. Why should we end the responsibility at that point? It could happen in America. Florida's trying to do it right now and so is Georgia. Planned Parenthood. Because we allowed that slippery slope.
I did not know that. I would expect none of us knew that, not even in Greg Brannon's North Carolina, because unless you've crawled into Greg Brannon's head, there's no reason you would. Nonetheless, the slippery slope argument has come out, and it's only a matter of time before the various states decide that pregnancy continues three months after it ends, or 30 years after it ends, and that this means the state will kill you if by the age of 30 years old you have not gotten a job, gotten out of the house and stopped watching certain television programs. A list will be provided.

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).
