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:

From the Appeal to Reason: Comrade Wayland Does His Part for Socialist Candidates

Debs for President 1904

In this week's Appeal to Reason, Editor J. A. Wayland  describes how he has been working, on his own time, for the Socialist Party candidates and asks the Appeal Army to do the same:


Last week I rode sixty-five miles, circulating Appeals and pamphlets, about Girard [Kansas]. One evening after work I made twenty miles and left an Appeal and two pamphlets at every farm house. Don't feel to dignified to do such work, and the most humble can do it and by it do just as effective work as the most brilliant speakers. I intend to keep this up during the entire campaign, giving fresh literature at each covering of the same roads. I do this after my day's work in the office is done. Ten thousand men doing this two or fours hours a week would make a tremendous breach in capitalism this fall. J. A. WAYLAND.


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).

Also from this week's Appeal:

J.P. Morgan supports both Democrats and Republicans, Appeal to Reason, Sept 3, 1904
* * *

The Seattle, wash., Times of June 26th, has the following headline describing the poverty that exists in that city:

"Live from Refuse of Barrels-Motley Crowd Daily Robs the Garbage Man in Alleys."

Fifty years ago who would have predicted such conditions, except in case of famine following famine, would have been put in an insane asylum. But our glorious republic has been captured by the same element that controls Europe and we have reached the shining portals where American families have been reduced to feeding out of slop barrels. Vote the old tickets some more, and more people will be reduced to the conditions. Hurrah for Rosy and Parker! Hurrah for the trusts! Hurrah for imperialism and monopoly! Will you believe evidence form your own papers?

Hellraisers Journal is on vacation!
Hellraisers will be on a vacation of sorts until September 22nd, and will appear in abbreviated form until that date. A complete vacation is not possible since the ruling class never took a vacation from their suppression and oppression of the working class.

There are no limits to which powers of privilege
 will not go to keep the workers in slavery.
