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.
Not all republicans are stupid. Not all conservatives are stupid. Not all tea party members are...well, um--anyways, yeah. A CNBC poll finds that only 19% of Americans support shutting down the government to defund Obamacare. Check this:
When asked about defunding Obamacare if it includes a government shutdown and defaulting, 59 percent of those polled opposed cutting funds to the president’s signature health law, while 19 percent supported it, according to a CNBC All-America Economic Survey conducted by Hart-McInturff out Monday.
Without the possibility of a shutdown, Americans are still against defunding Obamacare generally, 44 percent to 38 percent, the poll found.
While a majority of Republicans who identify with the tea party support defunding Obamacare even if it means a shutdown, by 54 percent, Republicans who do not identify with the tea party oppose doing so, 48 percent to 36 percent.
