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!
If President Obama wants to keep the excited young activists who got him elected, he'd better knock off foolishness like letting the FBI seize our phone records without a warrant. Mr. President, do not make me go to a Tea Party (but if I do, I wonder if I can Skype my RSVP...).
