I had trouble thinking of anything that people didn't already agree on- who's pro-child labor anymore, for instance? First I started writing about banning dog racing- which had a line that said, "if we must race something, let it be horses. They're bigger and require a larger investment, so people will be less likely to abuse them. Also, they were bred for transportation. Dogs, by comparison, are fragile, vulnerable, and were not raised to run in circles."
Yeah, so that didn't really work out. I wound up coming up with, "Americans cannot claim to be tolerant while continuing to stigmatize, stereotype and discriminate against people that marry their relatives."
No, seriously. For two pages (handwritten). Afterwards, I told my Mom and she just stared at me. "What is wrong with you? Why didn't you just write about how they should pay teachers more?"
Hmm. Come to think of it, that would have been a good one.
Dad said he wasn't surprised. Me and my brilliant ideas.
