If you were thinking of e-mailing me a political e-mail, you might as well know these things about me:

  • I don’t just blame Clinton and Democrats for 9/11. I blame a whooole lot of people, including, first and foremost, terrorists.
  • I support the troops. A soldier’s job is to go where he (or she) is sent and do the best job he can. That does NOT mean I have to agree with every decision made by those at the top. Do YOU always agree with YOUR boss?
  • I don’t believe ANY HUMAN BEING deserved to go through the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and I can’t imagine God looking down at that mess and shrugging and saying “WELL, they asked for it.” I imagine God being distraught that so many of his children were lost and hurt and scared and angry — and that far too many of his other children were too busy passing judgement and rolling their eyes in disgust to open their hearts or wallets to help. (YES, I made donations.)
  • If my marriage is threatened by a gay couple down the street, my marriage has much bigger problems than whatever the gay couple down the street is doing.
  • If kids are raised by parents who never hold them accountable for their actions, all the school prayer in the world isn’t going to save this country. If kids are raised in attentive, loving homes, where there are consistent rules to live by and consequences to face for bad behavior, and prayer is encouraged as a family, lack of school prayer wouldn’t mean a thing. Give me a break.
  • We all live in “the environment.” Folks, the environment impacts the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we — and our children — breathe. Caring about the environment isn’t just for a bunch of bearded, granola-eating hippies, but if it makes you feel better to believe that, go for it — I won’t stand in your way.

There. I feel better. Sorry if it offends, but it’s my blog you’re reading, isn’t it? Don’t try to convince me otherwise, and I won’t preach to you. Deal?
