I’m somewhat active in a local veteran’s organization, which hosted a Thanksgiving potluck. The food was fantastic, and the people are fun to talk to—normally. There is a healthy range of political views, but there’s a couple of Trump fanatics. I made a promise to myself if I go this year, it will be to enjoy the food and friends and not get pulled into any political debate. I’m off the clock.
This year, I took advice from Bill Maher, and let it go. I don’t always agree with him, but his commentary this past week was really on point.
