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:

Happy, uh, Holidays! And remember to follow @dailykoscomics & @markfiore Ho, ho, ho!

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).

Shoot-'Em-Up Charlie:

Hello, America!  It's me, Shoot-'Em-Up Charlie, with my pals Wayne and Dave, here to introduce our new line of bumper stickers!  [blam-blam]

You may have seen our recent press conference about gun violence-- well now we're turning those words into bumper-sticker action! [blam!]

First up, "Guns Don't Kill People, Gun-Free Schools Kill People!"  (And if more guns were allowed in schools, they'd be much smarter and less likely to fall in with crazy people!)

Then we have, "Honk!  If you want thousands and thousands of mentally ill people registered and tracked by the government!"

(Not to mention a five-day waiting period before they can talk to anyone!) [blam!]

Then there's: "Never Mind The Gun, Beware the evil liberal media planting seeds of insanity in some gun-owners' heads!  [blam! blam!]

And of course, "Guns Don't Kill People, Hurricanes Kill People!" (And somehow relate to shooting massacres.) [Blam! Blam!]

And then there's "Don't Blame Me, I don't play video games OR watch movies!"

And, "Put America Back to Work:  Guns In Schools = Jobs!"  [Blam!  Blam!]

Or, "If We Can Armor the President's Limo, Why Can't We Make Kids' Clothes Bulletproof?"

And, " You can have my gun lobby when you can pry off the hands of the largest gun manufacturers!"  [Blam!]

And our personal favorite:  "Guns Don't Kill People, Guns Don't Kill People-- I don't know, maybe it's the weather."

Er, music videos, or Woody Harrelson, er, a low pressure system or something-- but it's NOT the guns, right?  Right, fellahs?  [Blam! Blam!]
