2. Protests, protests and the time of year

t’s all over the news. Protests, protests and more protests are seemingly all we are talking about.Now thousands of people are fussing with each other about freedom of speech. It is an incredible thing. We are arguing that we should all be able to say what we want. If you don’t like what I say, you can say what you want. That is the way it should be. Why fight about it? The crazies have come out and want to fight about this freedom...It looks like we have to create a year-round season here to keep the citizenry from fighting among ourselves. Just think about a Saturday in South Carolina. Clemson, the University of South Carolina, South Carolina State, Citadel, Presbyterian College, Charleston Southern University and all the other colleges could be playing football on any given Saturday. Possibly a quarter of a million people could be at a football game. Think of this, all of those people are yelling and exercising their freedom of speech. They all have opposing views and yet we don’t have too many fights breaking out.
