Equipped with an unused college degree, thoughts on virtually every topic, and time to ruminate, I spread my opinions across this vast world.

If you wish to know my opinion on a specific topic, feel free to use the "Ask Me A Question" button below and I will opine to my hearts content.

The Opining Minnesotan

Opine

To express an opinion. Example: “I think this website is really cool.”

Why?

If individuals do not express their opinions, then how can the world be expected to change?

When?

An opinion should be expressed whenever it can be managed in a constructive way, whether by the speaker or the listener.

“It were not best that we should all think alike; it is difference of opinion that makes horse races.” – Mark Twain

“I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” – Thomas Jefferson
