Debates, Protests, and a Good Mystery
I want to protest the debate tonight, but I don’t know how. I think it’s ridiculous that the Dems & Repubs nominated Hillary and Trump. I think it’s even more ridiculous that Gary Johnson isn’t going to be in the debate with them, even though he’s on the ballot in all 50 states.
So, I was thinking of taking a knee when it starts, but it seems like that’s been done to death lately. I thought of picketing in front of my TV, but our 8th grader likes to study in the living room, and my wife says that might be distracting. I thought about going to downtown Carmel to smash things and loot, but you can’t get anywhere close because of all the intersections being turned into roundabouts this fall.
In the end, I’ve talked it over with my dog and we decided to keep the TV turned off and read a Carl Hiaasen novel instead.
Carry on, Citizens!
