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.
Draft-dodging pedophile Ted Nugent has written a thought-provoking piece for the Washington Times outlining a creative approach to solving our voting problems.
Let’s stop the insanity by suspending the right to vote of any American who is on welfare. Once they get off welfare and are self-sustaining, they get their right to vote restored. No American on welfare should have the right to vote for tax increases on those Americans who are working and paying taxes to support them. That’s insane.
In addition to suspending a welfare recipient’s right to vote, we also need to get our voting system straightened out and eliminate voter fraud. We need to ensure that only Americans vote by requiring polling places to validate the identification of each voter.
It shouldn’t take a Motown guitar slayer to come up with these common-sense bargaining chips before taxes are raised on the producers, which will further choke the economy. How about it, GOP?
The GOP needs to act and act now to get this brilliant plan included in the Fiscal Cliff negotiations. It is a well known fact that the Republicans are in such a commanding position over President Obama that this presents a golden opportunity to culminate their ultimate goal of complete voter suppression of brown "Americans". I'm sure that John Boehner broke down in tears when he learned that it was policy wonk Nugent who thought of this plan before he did.
Ted goes on to explain that these stupid GOP politicians need to stop being such wimps over taking on popular entitlements. He is calling for Medicare, Medicaid and the dubious entitlement of Social Security to die the death of cattle, demanding that "these sacred entitlement cows are not only poked, but slaughtered". This is just the remedy the Republicans need right now to get back on their feet after the painful drubbing they took on November 6th.
I smell big things for Ted Nugent's future as a political adviser to the Grand Old Party.
Update: A couple of folks have asked me to consider removing Motown from the title. I did so as a courtesy. My intent in using his own words in the title was to demonstrate his total disconnect from reality. Apologies to the fine people of Detroit. You are well rid of this man.
