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:

Middle Class America has a new hero. His name is John Mullins, a 57 year old Auburn, Alabama businessman. America needs a few million more in the delusional congressional districts that have chosen to allow Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and a few other Right Wing hacks to distort their inherent intelligence and create an alternate state of reality.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama’s 3rd district conducted according to oanow.com his “Congress on Your Corner” town hall meeting in April. Mr. Mullins, a constituent got completely fed up while listening to as he called it “crazy talk” from Auburn resident and constituent Carl Gagliano. The GOP congressman seemed completely shocked and remained speechless.

The video captures Mr. Mullins castigating the Gagliano and giving the GOP congressman a schooling in economics that is long overdue not only to this congressman but to all those supporting the proving fraud that is the austerity being imposed by Right Wing Republican and Right Wing Conservatives throughout the world. Mr. Mullins makes very important statements that are all backed up by facts.

  • Sequester negatively affecting small business people
  • This congress has done much hurt the economy
  • Cutting funding in a recession hurts customers which hurts business
  • Deficit spending in times of war and times of recession/depression is economically sound
  • Government spending should not be cut during recessions since it is the only entity that has the money to spend.
  • Republicans attempted austerity during the Great Depression which exacerbated the depression. It put millions more out of work (you would think they would have learned from history).

It is refreshing to see a resident, a constituent, a business person, and a patriot, not afraid to confront a room filled with the vociferously uninformed. This is what it takes to recover a country from a destructive, deceptive, and false ideology.

For too long throughout this country Tea Party Right Wing Libertarian Republicans have been at town halls unchecked giving their fact-less positions more sway in the body politic than warranted. This has given America the dysfunctional congress it has. As more John Mullins, make their voices heard, normalcy and prosperity will return.
