I Believe ...

...that global warming may have some natural climatic components, but that human activity has accelerated and/or exacerbated the problem.

...in a woman's right to choose whether or not to have a baby.

...in restricting the availability of pistols, rifles, shotguns and other guns to the general populous, and in a national ballistics fingerprinting database.

...that people living in the United States and expecting the privileges of such should learn to speak English.

...that the war in Iraq was a very ill-advised endeavor, but that I have no idea what the best course of action would be at this point.

...we should be paying more attention to what's going on in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Somalia, and Rwanda.

...that No Child Left Behind not only leaves many children behind, but leads to a culture of continued academic frustration and disenfranchisement among students, educators and parents.

...in the electric car, renewable energy sources and recycling.

...the government has the obligation to provide for the least of us, whether it be the poor, elderly, ill, uneducated.

...and that expecting churches and individuals to just pick up the slack and care for one another as we all should is overly optimistic and facetiously naive.

...that creation happened roughly the way the Bible descibed it, but that the actual timetable is ambiguous. While I don't believe we evolved from single-celled organisms or monkeys, I do believe the Earth is more than several thousand years old.
