We limit political leaning posts to a few and remove the rest. I am apolitical but watch winds change carefully to decide which way my business will move. So the reason we allow any is because like it or not which ever way it leans it affects our business adversely or beneficially. I closed one recently (Trump is Finished) and got a couple messages to open it back up. Before I consider it I'd like to ask the community. What's your thoughts?

First of all its impossible to be A political in the current circumstances... its like arguing that your mind can hold two opposing viewpoints and the same time

Political debate used to be two sides arguing about how to get to the same outcome... that is no longer the case...

If you look at the last 20 years the right has moved to the left, however the left has done a hard left turn and the two sides are so far apart on key issues that bipartisan solutions aren't even possible.

Pick a side because there is no middle ground

both sides like to fling poo at each other with constant mudslinging and investigations... its all a smoke screen

Cut to the facts and focus on the core issues

Immigration
Constitution (freedom of speech, 2a, religious liberty, etc)
Capitalism vs socialism

These are the debates that need to be had... not these smoke screens

I want to hear life long demecrats that have been voting age for 20 plus years tell me that they are okay with where their party stands on these issues. And if so what changed...

You left out cutting up babies and then pulling their body parts from wombs. Isn't there a current word for that or something that makes it sound better?

Leave the stupid ones at home. Require knee high boots and the ability to run from the little green men that will show up.

Every time a baby gets aborted ...... an angel gets air miles....
Almost a half million black/brown babies killed a year. That's 40% abortions performed on 13% of population by Planned Parenthood, or Planned Unparenthood. Go figure.

Leave the dead alone.

That post was like a corpse. It stunk after 3 days!

But in the end, I'll support your choice. It is your decision buddy, thank you for caring enough to consider our opinions.

Unfortunately, it seems to be a rare occurrence in the world where politics can be discussed without mudslinging that eventually turns into an irrational tirade charged with emotions and facts that are questionable.

As time passes and my hair thins I will admit that taking a position and using your voice is necessary. (i.e. What message or response will your kids here inside your home from you on these matters?)

In my opinion it takes courage to speak your views.

Honest question Todd. FWIW I lean right...

Do you think Trump has divided our people at all?

True dat but I might agree that your political views have become known to the point where apolitical may not be the correct word.

Second thought I may be mincing words.

Apolitical means: not interested or involved in politics.

I might describe myself as apolitical because most of my time is not spent involved with political matters but at the end of the day we all have our views.

It kind of seems "apolitical" is a word that can be used to neutralize ones views as that person play the part of chameleon as they work with different types of people.

Many people like to categorize others based on their views. I am pro life and pro traditional family so others want to put me in a category. I just see it as biblical.

Most carpet cleaners are unqualified to speak intelligently about CARPET CLEANING, let alone political opinion.... :D
Keep at it grasshopper, maybe one day you’ll qualify for both.

Well the content was fine, however the heading was somewhat of a false narrative in and of itself, but then you addresssed it within, so flip a coin and let fate decide.
