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.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
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.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
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).
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.
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.
Two members of the Tar Sands Blockade have Occupied the pipe itself in an effort to stop the destruction that will result when this pipeline is completed. Every effort must be made to stop it.
Two Tarsands blockaders have sealed themselves inside a pipe meant for the pipeline. Police threatened teargas, and now they are threatening to release a canine unit inside the pipe to go after the blockaders. Brave resistance.
BREAKING: 2 people barricade themselves inside a mile long section of Keystone XL pipe and have halted construction. Early this morning Matt Almonte and Glen Collins locked themselves inside the pipe between two barrels of concrete weighing over six hundred pounds each. Police are on the scene and threatening to use tear gas and K-9 units. Follow the breaking updates on our live blog: http://tarsandsblockade.org/... Click LIKE and SHARE to stand with Matt and Glen and their brave action. We must demonstrate that doing nothing is a greater danger than the risks of taking direct action against this toxic pipeline.
