Yes, people actually have beliefs like this.

Real people-- sometimes I have to remind myself of that. Not just those men in Washington.

Sometimes I want to throw up because of how narrow-minded my roommate is.

Physically. Yak. Right there in the kitchen.

Because she thinks children of illegal immigrants (who have known nothing but the United States as their home) shouldn't have in-state tuition at college. Maybe it'll discourage other people from coming over illegally, she said. Riiiight. Just like abstinence-only programs prevent teenagers from having sex.

Because she thinks women shouldn't have the right to choose whether or not to have an abortion (except in the cases of health of course). Even adult women. Even in cases of rape. Because you shouldn't have sex unless you're ready for the consequences. There are millions of families who want to adopt. For every family who wants to adopt, I bet there are many needy children (atleast).

I think about people with beliefs like this-- the absolutely, positively polar opposite of mine-- all the time. Sometimes I forget they live in the same house as me.

    On the in-state tuition issue...tell your roomie that Senator Orrin Hatch, a dozen other GOP Senators, President George W. Bush, and the Supreme Court all disagree with her. Just fyi. ;)

    Be the guy with the same opinion as yours on a morning talk show that gears itself toward Republicans.... I get a lot of hate mail.

    Well, with all the differing opions... it makes life interesting.
