So this just happened.

I have a band, a rock band, of TWO people :lol: and we SUCK, but we have fun.

I put up videos on FB once in a while because I have had 2 heart attacks and I never know when I am going to die so fuck it, as rough as we sound I want a RECORD god dammit that I know how to play the god damn drums and maybe even sing a little. :D

Guy I know who is FB friend for some reason I dont remember, former client lives 300 miles away now sees the video and says "coming to town how about if I bring my bass and amp and we jam."
So I look close at his FB for the first time, but with a memory he might be a righty and sure enough he has a link to DeSouza's filthy movie and something else that assures me my memory is correct, RIGHTY!

So I pm'd back that Bill's amp is broken, which it is, and i have an event coming up for my wife, which I do, and between all that no we cant plus we wont ever probably because I am moving soon, which I am.

He wrote back a simple thumbs up, but I realized when I sent the pm that i had sent him one before a couple years ago with a link to a liberal article and comment from me that I am a liberal, which he may not have seen until now.

Either way, sorry, no. If you had not just last week recommended people see DeSouza's movie or link to a holocaust survivor talking about how horrible it is for liberals to call border immigrant facilities internment camps, etc.

So not sure how the rest of you deal with it but I wont do jack shit with any con unless I have to. I am selling a house soon, for instance so I emailed my local political guru guy who knows everybody and asked if he knew of a liberal real estate agent and he knew of ONLY one, wow. But that is who will get my listing when the time comes.

Unfortunately I cant always do this though, like with service people, HVAC etc.

So how about you all, how are you handling this with family, friends, business associates?

Personally I don’t care what people believe politically. It’s a free country. If I need my AC fixed and it’s 100 degrees outside, I don’t care who you vote for as long as you know how to get the air back on. My wife and I have friends and family that cover pretty much the entire political spectrum. I would never ditch a friend or a family member over politics. There is more to life than politics. We are all different. That’s what makes the world go round.

Generally, I agree. And I have friends/acquaintances/family/associates with a wide range of views. But I would say that people can become so obnoxious that I don't want to have anything to do with them any longer. And there are other people who have views that I find offensive enough (and they dont have the sense to keep them to themselves, but maybe I dont either) that I've lost a lot of respect for them and it sometimes impacts the relationship. Sometimes that impact is obvious, sometimes it just in my mind.

You can't vote for Republicans and not support bigotry. You cant vote for, or support trump without supporting racism. The deaths of at least 3,000 Puerto Ricans are on the hand of these people.

I will not sit around a socialize with people I despise. If they want to do a plumbing repair or a roof repair and they dont mind my "Anybody But Roskam" sign and my "Just Vote Blue" sign, they are more than welcome to earn a living. If they say a word about it, they are escorted off our property.

We no longer associate with the blonde's cousin who lives over in Ann Arbor and wont STFU about his politics.

I am sure they miss you very much :D

As for me I have friends from all walks of life. Left right gay strait and yes of all different races and economic backgrounds. I find that when you limit those who you associate with the only person you are hurting is yourself
Or as my grandma used to say it is a big world and it takes all sorts of people to make it go round.

The concept of the "loyal opposition" is long gone. FOXNEWS, the GOP, and those who vote for Republican politicians killed it, with their gay bashing, women hating, war mongering and their democratized gun carnage, among a hundred other things.

Its a war for the decency of the culture and you can't be on both sides.

Only legally at the ballot box. Not in the violent way that some here have reffered to. Nor in the way that caused a California GOP candidate to get attacked with a knife this week. Or the way a wyoming gop office was torched. Or the w ay a conservative journalist had to go into hiding. Or in the wsy Rep Waters is callimg to harass people. Nor do I have anything against you personally. I just think that you political beliefs are wrong.

Or the way that Trump has sanctioned violence? The way he told his followers to beat people up? Or the way he has championed neo-nazis and the KKK? "Very fine people".

I agree with you. Trump is just as wrong as those on the left. Glad we are in agreement

Nope. Trump is far worse than ANYONE on the left. Are we in agreement? Yes or no?

Absolutely Trump has no redeeming qualities is not qualified to be President and should have never even recieved the nomination. He is just a blip on the radar of our nations history and in a little over 2 years maybe less will be part of the dust bin of history.

And until then, he has your full support. But you think that Trump's stench won't be on you when he leaves, and you can go back to smearing Dems for far less that what you've supported Trump in getting away with.

You've set the bar, glen. You won't be able to act like he never happened. This is Donald Trump's Republican Party now. He owns it. And he owns you.

I don’t care to be around obnoxious people either. So I don’t really discuss politics much in social situations. It has become such a volitle issue that many conversations move from friendly respectful discussions to the obnoxious. Everybody loses in those discussions.

I know a lot of people, including family members, whose opinions differ from mine but we have an unspoken truce of not engaging in those types of arguments. Usually, we avoid the contentious issues and stick to things we share in common.

You just dont get it. It's not about Donald. It's about the assholes who voted for him who had all the same information about him that the rest of us had...and voted for him anyway It's about the 80% of sshole Republican voters who still support him. It's about the 80% of asshole evangelical Christian's who support him.

Donald trump has done us a huge favor. He has shown us how much scum we have in our midst. This is not about Donald, this is about the people.

Fuck You glen. I do in fact miss them very much, but being around them is to much of a trial for me to endure. Only Republican Scum would make the comment you made and I am not surprised.

Some of glen's best friends are African-American. His Gay Friends dress so very well and Women are always in the kitchen cooking.

Fuck glen.

I would say friends and family arent objects to be arbitrarily dismissed or thrown away over politics. People is fortunate to have each other.

I have not thrown anyone "Away". Being around them is tooooo difficult. I get an endless tirade of how 45 is doing so much for our country and if only the "Uppity N * * * * * *" and the "Fucking Illegals" would shut up everything would be fine. Rather than put with it, I simply do not go for family visits. I have SKYPE and Google Hangout. I talk to my family when I can. When one them starts a rant, I hang up.

Thrown away?

sigh

Ridiculous comment.

Reminds me of the endless attacks I would get over the years of being hyperbolic about all republicans being terrorists or traitors. Or just bad people.

Even my closest liberal friends would say this stuff. They were trying not to "throw away" the good with the bad, I guess. Turns out now they are all bad, I knew this all along but that made me an outlier and I knew it because of my personal experience with ONE of them in particular.

But this is not about me, my friend Will would tell me that...sure miss him. Such a good guy, tough and in your face but good, real good...decent.
