Conversations about Politics

Filed under: Personal,Politics; Author: Les Bain; Posted: October 1, 2008 at 5:05 pm;

I read more about politics than I discuss politics.  I read blogs and comments, so I read individual voices, but I do not discuss much.  When I am with people, we are more likely to be discussing business.

Today I was in a conversation that turned to politics.  Even though we were all in essential agreement, the conversation quickly turned emotional, and I heard profanities from this group for the first time.

It was actually interesting to see the heat that it generated.  I have been reading George Lakoff, so I was mentally applying what I have been learning to the conversation.

All in all, I enjoyed it.
