I almost started writing a political diatribe today. Almost addressed the ends justifying the means. Almost jumped on a pro-military soapbox. Almost dove headfirst into the upcoming election.
But pulled back from the brink. Coitus Interruptus of the ranting train wreck that would follow.
Honestly, I hate to talk about politics. I have many good friends, people I respect, intelligent people, former teachers, ardent fans, all of whom I strongly disagree with when it comes to politics.
I just feel it would be wrong to ruin our relationship and let them know that, since they disagree with me, by definition, they are wrong.
We can talk bikes. Trek, Cannondale, Proteus, aluminum, titanium, Dura-Ace, Campagnolo, Carbon Monocoque Riding Poseurs.( If you leave the politics out)
We can talk guns. ( If you leave the politics out)
We can talk cars. ( If you leave the politics out)
We can talk about me. Alway popular.
We can talk about you. For a while at least. More so if you are particularly attractive, and send me the pictures to prove it.
We can talk about coffee. ( If you leave the politics out)
We can talk tech. Less so if you are an Apple fanboy.
We can talk Sci-Fi.
We can talk sports. Unless you are a Yankees fan.
Just leave me out of your politics.
