I try not to talk about politics at work because I know my opinion would piss a lot of people off. I have the unpopular opinion on some topics. I'm also annoyed because people want to talk about, people tend to talk about what is on the news... and the only thing on the news is politics. All I want to do is sit down and eat my food on my breaks, I don't know why people have to interrupt me when I am eating and watching my shows on my phone, I have both earbuds in but people will still interrupt me to ask a politically charged question. I really don't like being put on the spot in the break room, I also know if I don't answer the question I will probably be labelled racist. I'm left with no option but to give a response that I have to pick carefully.

It's usually the same black woman that puts me on the spot with a question I have to respond too or a statement I have to agree with or praise. Like, "This is all Trump's fault!" She'll stare at me and wait for me to say something. I don't agree with her statement so I have to come up with a counter statement, I have to tell a partial truths or act like a politician and deflect. My go to response has been. "I blame all politicians, they don't really care about us common folk."

Yesterday I got caught off guard by a white girl, a white girl that is trying to overcompensate. I'M NOT RACIST BECAUSE I AGREE WITH THAT!!! She said something to me with a bunch of other people in the break room and I guess she was expecting a response that matches hers, perfectly. All this over the removal of confederate monuments. I think it's a waste of money, but I am not going to say that out loud. I think if the monuments are being removed they should be moved to a museum or a battlefield park, I don't think they should be destroyed. I also know that my opinion means nothing and I am sure that that is enough to label me as misinformed or racist. I'm sorry world, I don't have white guilt! I also don't feel like being unemployed because somebody approached me with a politically charged question.

I'm just a guy with a rebel flag hat, I have it because I really enjoyed watching the duke's of hazard.

Thanks for allowing me to speak my mind.

I live in the South.  No less than three of my neighbors have Confederate flags handing on their porch. (Cue Jeff Foxworthy-esque "You might be a redneck" here.) I'd like to see these fruity granoloa-eating pajama-boy basement-dweller BLM-b.s. fartknockers come down here to my 'burg and try to get them to take those babies down. They'll leave here with a shotgun hole in their guts.

Pretty much, most are full ghetto or really young, probably spoon fed some white privilege and white guilt facts. I just want to eat my food in peace. I'm going to start taking my noise cancelling over ear headphones to work for breaks, maybe they'll get the hint.

I'm done with cancel culture, it's become cancer culture. I'm sorry if I keep dropping my little political rants here. I don't really have any options that won't lead to being blocked and hated. At least I hope it doesn't lead to me being blocked and hated.

Thanks for allowing me to speak my mind.

You're always welcome too.  No need to say sorry.  Freedom of speech.  :)

Your co-workers don't sound too pleasant I am sorry to say. I have the same issue, but mainly with customers.  And even if I don't agree with then, I just kind of nod, accept it.  You just kind of live with it.  Until you get to know people more, then I start to share my thoughts more, and often times they might give me some guff, but after awhile, they just like me for me and know they don't agree with my views nessecarily.

We see what anarchism is capable of and we are seeing a inner growth or radicalism.  It is filled with people who want to fundamentally alter our society and landscape. Erase and rewrite history how they see fit.  We've seen this happen in many countries like China, Venezuela, etc.

We especially don't want to become Venezuela.  The other afternoon I heard this item on the radio about what hungry people in parts of Caracas and Maracaibo are doing for food... and, God help me, my first reaction was "I would pay to see that shit!" I'm thinking maybe they should make a short about it for that new Looney Tunes Cartoons show... bring back that little witch-doctor from that one old cartoon, y'know, and repurpose him as a starving Venezuelan native loose in a zoo, going from cage to cage trying to nosh greedily on all the animals. Couldn't you just see him all crazy and drooling, trying to, like, put mustard on an elephant's butt? Be a pretty-funny one-shot, I think, if they had the balls to do it.  Meh... Nah. Too soon, too raw. People are a bunch'a friggin' snowflake pussies these days.

And... "suffering involuntary weight loss"? Pretty fancy candy-ass way to say "starve", isn't it? Hell. Any way you slice it, hunger is a serious issue, no matter where you are. All this talk about shortages here in the U.S., stories about perfectly good meat getting thrown out, and milk spilled into sewer grates because a worker at a plant allegedly tested positive for Covid-19. Such a goddamn waste. Here in my town, hanging out behind the supermarket, I've met some pretty good folks who are eating out of the trash, they were so poor and desperate, and that was back in the summer even before coronabug broke. I can't imagine what it's like for them now. Does social distancing still apply at a dumpster? Will grocery stores be forced to lock up their cast-off trash to prevent a homeless person catching the virus from exposed produce and meats?  Think about that when you sit down to your post-Fourth Sunday bbq feast this evening, friends and neighbors.

I agree that humor is often the best way to alleviate stress and defuse a potentially bad situation, but what can you do when even an innocuous joke is looked upon with a sour eye by your sensitive, overreactionary types in one group or another?  Our country has more big movements going on now than an elder-care facility on stewed-prune-and-bran night.

...And here comes the truckloads of hate mail now. (cues stock footage of postal vehicles rolling along to the tune of "Powerhouse".)
