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:

Obama did what George W. Bush could never do.  He got up in front of the corporate media presented his points clearly and made a compelling arguement for healthcare.  

In an hour newconference, he took the millions of dollars poured into the noise machine and dimantled their talking points with the way Obama knows how to do.

So what will the noise machine and the corporatists do?  They will do the old smoke and mirrors, the old bait and switch as they continue to stall legislation and get to the corrupt politicians.  They have decided that Obama's comment about the law professor (which I won't go into any further because I won't take the bait) is more important to discuss than the morality of what Obama was discussing and the impact healthcare has on our country's future....


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).

It is much more important that we cut the greed in the healthcare industry.  It is more important that people don't lose their life savings because the healthcare industry has put a price on how much it costs to live and die on certain proceedures covered and not covered.  It is more important that healthcare doesn't break the country's back as more (babyboomers) and more people will be presented with more health concerns as the largest demographic in this country gets older.

The media doesn't want you talking about this.  The media wants you watching Michael Jackson and the other crap they spew 24/7.  

They are trying to buy time to change the subject.

They are beholden to the drug industry's advertising, the healthcare industry's advertising and the big greedy corporate model that has taken over.  

This arguement is between the Nationalists and the Corporatists plain and simple.

Obama is trying to take our country back, we need to help him!!

Keep the discussion focused on healthcare.   Millions of people are depending on you!!!
