My recommendation is stay out of talk about politics at work - especially since you're in an industry where people fear regulation...

I can't say I've experienced your reaction in person... have experienced it plenty on this forum...

Good rule of thumb is NEVER discuss politics at work... you never can tell when someone is getting upset, even if they are smiling at the time...

I hope it occurs to that girl that it's her own greedy company she needs to distrust. She and her friends sound crass and shallow.

Since then they have cooled down and have taken an attitude of, "We will see." They have also apologized.

More encouraging, some of my close Republican friends with whom I made an agreement to just not discuss the election prior to the election are now telling me that they are pleased with Obama's picks and suggestions so far. They perceive him as a centrist rather than the far left liberal presented to them by their party. They are also taking a watch and see attitude, but they are pleased at this point.

In Texas, we consider all politicians a piece of s**t--even the ones we vote for and like.
Same here and we ain't afraid to tell them they are either. Bye bye Ryan..Bye bye Blago
