Topics/Current Events/Items for Discussion

Your opinions are important to me and my readers. Let’s talk. Here is a list of some of the current events I regularly follow as well as other topics about which I have strong opinions. Of course, my opinions change based on acquired knowledge. I’d like to hear what you have to say so that we can agree or disagree (and perhaps shape one another’s opinions). This list is in no way exhaustive and is in no particular order. If you have a specific topic you’d like me to start with, please let me know.

Nothing controversial or anything! I’d like to try to keep my entries polite and non-threatening. I don’t like mud slinging and name calling so I’ll try to avoid slang terms to describe what’s going on. I would just like to share my opinion. After all, that’s what this blog is all about. What topic(s) would you like to talk about? -Julie
