Just say no…

Politics: the most annoying subject matter ever. For some reason, when young Americans arrive at college, they suddenly begin to believe that they have been telepathically imbued with knowledge about government issues. Let me make this very, very clear: being able to regurgitate statements overheard from your parents as they watch the news and you read Cosmo does not make you a political analyst. Period. Exclamation point.

I don’t care if you are Republican, Democrat, or if you voted for Ralph Nader: just say no to political debates among friends. Even if you and yours are well-versed in political ongoings, you’re not going to convince anyone to change their views. The “conversation” will end badly. Period. Exclamation point.

I understand it is hard to contain your newfound views, seeing as it wasn’t really cool to care about anything other than Friday night football until now. Unfortunately, I do not care. Nor will anyone you challenge. Moral of the story: save the political debates for the classroom. Teachers love to bring up politics because, since all college students think they are experts, they can get more than just the usual front-row D-bags to provide input. If you are a front-row D-bag, apologies…but not really.

Tip: Just a heads-up, most college professors, along with the majority of university campuses not located along the Bible Belt, are liberal. So if you plan on vocalizing conservative views, be prepared for the possibility of a verbal beating. It’s not fair, but as my mom always says: “Life’s not fair, then you die.” I know, I wonder where I got my cynicism?
