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.
I just want to make this absolutely clear, I don't care if you worship pie in the sky that forbids tonsillectomies it really has nothing to do with you whatsoever. The fact that you also own a pie in the sky factory does not allow you to decide what anyone's health care should be.
It is between the patient and her/his doctor.
It has absolutely nothing to do with you.
I don't care if you think skin grafts are an abomination unto Nuggan
I don't care if some shriveled old monk thinks contraception makes Catholic Jesus cry.
Fine, if your god forbids any cutting of follicles you can go around looking like a tangled sheep for all I care this does not mean I have to do the same.
Our physical health has nothing to do with you or your god[s]
Quite frankly it is the same if I demand my employees cannot have insurance because they are wearing a cross because religious symbols offend my soul.
This is what freedom from and of religion means.
Keep out of my health care and I will keep out of yours.
Giving power to religion to control others is so against the first amendment as to be absurd. SCOTUS should have kicked this out without even bothering to hear the arguments.
Religion is not a science, religion has nothing to do with medicine.
Why are we even having this bloody stupid argument in the first place?
Keep your religion away from me. I could not care one iota what you think your god thinks, I don't care what you believe in, really I don't. Worship pie for all I care, just leave me out of it.
You can go see a priest for health care if you want, I'll go see a doctor.
