Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
I read with relish (o.k., raisin bran) the reports from DakotaWomen that contend the Vote Yes on 11 forces can't pay their media bills and thus must resort to legal shenanigans to try silencing the folks fighting for women's rights. Funny, considering that some folks campaigning for Initiated Measure 11 have contended that the Lord will bless the righteous with material wealth if we just vote the right way. Maybe the Lord is just waiting until after the election to bless South Dakota with oil... or maybe righteousness includes respecting constitutional liberties and individual autonomy.
