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:

Tomorrow, May 14 we will once again rally in Madison to protest the Republican Rampage here in FitzWalkerStan.


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).

Music starts at 2:30 PM and the rally itself begins at 3 PM.  Busses are leaving from all over the state (check the above link if you need transportation).

Swag and posters are available here.  Donations are also appreciated.

While protests have been ongoing in Madison, most of the activity has become local with Walker protests everywhere he appears among other activities.

We have all been busy with the recalls of 8 Republican State Senators (6 successful petitions were submitted with 4 already approved by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Board) and special elections will be scheduled for July 12.  The Democratic Party has filed legal objections to the petitions that were filed against 3 Democratic State Senators because of sloppy and, outright illegal signatures (e.g. signatures of long deceased people, signatures of many people who attest to have never signed the petition, and many incidents where people were misled about what the petition was for).

Great candidates are stepping up to run against the recalled Republicans and campaigns will begin soon.

In addition, State Supreme Court election recounts have been completed throughout the state with the exception of the mess in Waukesha County (which requested and received an extension until May 26) which I documented in a recent diary (and hasn't gotten any better).

We haven't been quiet, idle, or lost interest here.  And if Walker and his pals think we have gone away, tomorrow should be another gigantic wake up call.  Republicans have brought together the unions, community groups, and people of Wisconsin in a way we have never been united before.  We are still fighting to restore our state to sanity.

The rally tomorrow is expected to be as big as the rally for the return of the Wisconsin 14 or the recent Thunda in the Rotunda bike rally.  If you are in Wisconsin, I'll see you there.
