Silence is golden…

Except with regards to a blog.

I have been very quiet lately, mostly due to the fact that in March of 2017 I returned to school and then in February of this year I changed jobs, leaving the company I had been with for the last 16 years to start working with a local school district.

Lots happening in the life and family of The Samurai these days, but I will make every effort to start posting on a regular basis again.

 

Why do I no longer discuss politics

Someone once asked me why I no longer talk about politics on my site.

Really?

Talking about politics, anymore, is like people talking about their children, and face it, if you have kids you know what I mean and you are probably guilty of what I am talking about.

People always like to talk about their children.  It does not matter how good they are, bad they are, what they have accomplished, or not.  If they are a social deviant at nine or a rhodes scholar at five.  People will always talk about their children and they usually, most of the time, do so with the highest of praise.

Same is so with people and their personal choice of politicians.  They will espouse the wonders of Bernie, or the integrity and beauty of Hillary, or the sinserity and diplomacy of Trump or the fun wit and wisdom of Biden.  They will, seemingly, have their own stories of their personal favorite politician and they respective Quixotic aspirations of the perfect world for the rest of us.

And you know what?  It’s all BS.

I have politicians I like.  I have people I vote for.  But I am not talking about them, I am very reserved when it comes to that.  Voting is like wiping your ass.  Everyone has to or should do it, and as often as is needed, but don’t go sharing the process with others and don’t talk about how yours is better than everyone else’s.

Political talk almost always leads to arguments or dislike.  It almost always adds a level of foulness to a conversation that is hard to get over or through.

So yeah… I don’t do politics here.

Get over it.
