I understand where you are going and absolutely agree with making "noise".

I write frequently to pols and while sarcasm is unavoidable at times, sometimes asking why more important issues have not been addressed has more sting that telling them off.

A logical response to Biden's sally over the weekend to charge someone a huge fine for bringing a firearm into a school might best be answered by asking who the fine will be levied on if the shooter is dead. Parents? His estranged brother in Paraguay? Some people beg to be hung with their own rope. Figuratively, of course.

Reasonable questions about unreasonable ideas may not change the pol, but maybe the staffer assigned to look at things might be amused, and people they come in contact with hear of it. The pebble tossed makes ripples which go places we might not imagine. More pebbles, more ripples.

Glad you are thinking of how to make noise.

The old Texas battle flag with a cannon and "Come and Take It" inscribed is a favorite of mine.
Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world — and never will.
— Mark Twain
