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:

   Scott Walker is bringing his anti middle-class, union-busting act to New York City--and we can show him, on behalf of all Wisconsin workers and workers throughout the nation, that he is not welcome in New York City.


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).

   Walker is the featured speaker at a fundraiser for the Republican National Committee at the Sherry-Netherland Hotel--which is at 781 FIFTH AVENUE between 59th and 60th. AFSCME's District Council 37 has called a demonstration in the plaza right across the street at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

    Pass the word.

    Here is the Facebook Page for the action. [btw, yes, I know the creators of the page have mistakenly identified the location as "Brooklyn, NY". I am trying to get this changed. The correct location is, in fact, in Manhattan NOW CORRECTED AS OF 11 A.M.!!!]

    It does not matter if you are a public employee or not--we all need to turn out for this demonstration.

    For everyone who could not make it to Wisconsin--and for those who did--this is a chance to make clear to Walker and his anti-union, anti middle-class thugs that we have just begun to fight.

    To state the obvious, spread the word, post to your Facebook page, tweet it etc etc...

    We will have some cheeseheads there...
