We live in politically charged times and I like discourse and I love a debate. I like to say what is on my mind and while I know I am always right… I am smart enough to know that is not the case.
Tonight is the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Tonight these candidates are likely going to “go at it” and it is going to make for great drama. There will be Tweets and Facebook posts and post debate spin for hours and days. Opinions are going to fly in every direction. Truths will be lies and lies will be truths.
Tonight someone, or many someone’s, is going to lose their job, client(s) and/or friendships.
Let me be clear… yes you have the right to freedom of speech.
And everyone else is free to react the way they do.
So before saying #(Candidate)Sucks or #(Candidate)Lies or worse something extremely inflammatory that is fueled by one too many bourbons, beers or glasses of wine… ask yourself if that thought is so damn important, it is so crucial to mankind that you are willing to lose something over it.
My over/under on how many hours until a viral news story breaks about how someone was fired because of what was said is 72 hours.
I hope I am wrong.
