This is not quilt related.
I do not like to talk politics. Everyone has a different opinion and I respect that. I expect people to respect that I may have a different opinion than they do, and if we disagree on a subject, we should refrain from discussing it if it will get tempers flaring.
I wasn't in the office this morning for 20 minutes and a coworker (not usually in this office, thankfully) began talking politics right off the bat. After trying, unsuccessfully, to change the subject, I got up and started to leave the room. At which point I was accused of being a coward and rude by this person.
So be it. If leaving a discussion because you do not want to argue is rude, then I guess I'm rude. And I'm not a coward. I do not force my opinions down someone else's throat. This individual seems to think they are cloaked in self righteousness because of election results. Personally, I think they are going to be singing a different tune in a short time because some changes may happen that will be a detriment to them. Not that I wish that on them, but it's a very real possibility.
I am angry that no matter who is in office the fact remains that my family is struggling.
I am grateful that we are in better shape than many, many people. That fact keeps me calmer than I would be right now.
End of rant. Back to your regularly scheduled quilting... :)
