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:

I’ve seen them. Green delusional monsters doing their best to destroy the world we live in.

The Frogs. The ones that sit in a pot of water which is slowly heating up until they boil alive. They never recognize it’s heating up and they boil alive – willfully.

They’re sitting on our world while it slowly heats to boiling. They want to force us to sit and boil to death with them.

Some sit because they know they’ll be dead before the boiling is over.

Some sit because they don’t care what happens to their children and grand children.

Some sit through sheer, stupefying ignorance and stupidity. They are either too stupid or frightened to pull their heads out and see what’s happening.

They are all Frogs.

They are not “deniers”. That is not descriptive. They are Frogs. They can not see the world as it really is.


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).

When you meet someone that doesn’t recognize the reality of global warming the proper response is not to reason with them. They will not recognize reason. They will not recognize reality. They are Frogs.

The proper response is: “Oh, you’re a Frog!”.

“What’s a Frog?” might be the return response. They may not be self aware as Frogs. They may feel comfortable with their heads still inserted into a warm, dark place.

Simply say, “ Oh, you’re a Frog! You’re delusional and can’t see the real world. That’s because you haven’t pulled your head out.”

That’s it. No need to say more.

Unfortunately the Frogs are on attack. In Australia the Frogs have recently gotten the upper hand… or flipper.

In the U.S. they’re everywhere – especially in the South. Frogs love the dank and moist environs so welcoming to ignorance and stupidity.

We have to stop the Frogs before they ruin our world.

First, though, we have to call them what they are – Frogs. They are not deniers. They are not skeptics.

They are Frogs.
