In America, there is no better time to express yourself than now. Thank you, First Amendment. Thank you, internet and social media. Thank you, 24-hour news cycles. And you too, Donald Trump, current president of the United States. NFL. Gold star families. Me too. North Korea. Free. Form. Punctuation. Iran. Isis. The greatest divider of all time: Linus and the Great Pumpkin. Gun violence. Pearl Jam. Uber. Black lives matter. White supremacy. Little, yellow, different. Puerto Rico. This Is Us. Hurricanes. WikiLeaks.
All these topics are out there like a big old hairy grapefruit being pitched at you, underhanded, and you have a fat baseball bat to smack the living shit out of it. Do it, it’s your right. It’s the only privilege you really have. Take pride as you splatter your freedom of opinion all over all those other opinions. Do it now before “they” actually make you sing “The Star-Spangled Banner”. I always thought the National Anthem was optional, like bread at a restaurant. You don’t have to eat it, but it’s nice that it’s being offered.
Freedom of speech is amazing until you do it slightly wrong and get sued for libel and/or copyright infringement.
