Honest question Todd. FWIW I lean right...

Do you think Trump has divided our people at all?
Honestly, I feel the people have divided the people. Look at the riots lately, Trump had nothing to do with the riots. The people rioting have driven a wedge between black and white that has regressed this country back a century. I sit and watch the division taking place and it looks to me like the rioters want the division.

Personally it makes me sick. I have black friends and A LOT of black customers that I’ve been serving for 20 years. I Am not prejudiced what so ever and have always treated all people as equals. It sickens me to see what is happening right now. just last week I stoped at a convenience store to get a Gatorade and there were 4 black men hanging out in front of the store making a bunch of noise. I’m ashamed to say I was scared and left because of them. I honestly didn’t feel safe. It’s disgusting to have to feel this way in our country. I’ve never felt this way in all my years.

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?

I'll echo others here who have refuted your claim to be apolitical. It's been made clear more than once where your political leanings go, and whether they are based on your faith, your business profitability metrics, is immaterial.

Politics affects our business, as Todd alluded to so eloquently in his post above. So it is appropriate for us to discuss political issues, I think, as long as we can do so in a way that doesn't evolve around denigrating one another.

Trump expised the divide that was already there... he gave a voice to the silent majority

I understand. I also understand that the U.S. has all the earmarks of Venezuela taking place, removal statues and history, street name changes, 2002 police removed and new socialist system put into place. Result? People are throwing their worthless money into the streets under socialism and oppressed by a military state.

To me it’s productive to watch as the the good book says “the wise one foresees the calamity and proceeds to conceal himself. But the stupid walks right into it”. Therefore just like the biblical writers they observed the times and political winds as proof of canonicity while waiting on salvation. The stupid contribute to their own demise and that of others.

Just move political threads to off-topic if it’s in one of the cleaner forums..........if someone decides to enter one and gets butt hurt that’s on them. People on the internet down in moms basement on her Dell desktop don’t bother me......

This is not about a ballgame to me, its about which way the knuckleheads in power will take our economy thus affecting my livelihood/family. You are in the game, I’m a spectator. Do you ball players want the game opened back up or do you want to complain?

I fail to see how THIS very post will affect our livelihoods one way or the other, but since you are asking , yes open it back up,

Yea he takes his ball home all the time. I also fed my family just fine while obummer was in office. Regardless of tides I’ll always do my best to feed them. Even if it’s growing my own food that’s what we will do
