Please don't tell me
Perhaps it's the let down after the indictment of Scooter Libby and the defeat of California Governor Schwarzenegger's "very special" ballot measures, or maybe it's simply the shorter daylight hours, but I'm not feeling up to weighing in on politics today. In fact, I don't want to hear anyone else's opinions either. Here are the opinions, I particularly don't want to hear (but I've provided the links, in case you do):
*The opinions of men who aren't fathers on whether teenagers who need abortions should be required to get their parents consent. Apparently, other California voters agree, defeating the proposition that was almost single-handedly financed by James Holman.
*The opinions of people who don't have children and don't help raise other people's children on how children should be raised. See HERE for this critique continued and a few egregious examples.
*The opinion of a man who belives in "promoting the culture of life" and at the same time promotes torturing prisoners.
(If I do want to hear an opinion about torture, I'll turn to Michael Ratner, of the Center for Constitutional Rights, or Senator John McCain).
Yes, of course, with more and more restrictions, people can still say what they'd like in this country. I'm just asking them not to.
