    I think you are taking a highly narrow view that is colored by your intense dislike of Trump and by default anyone that is satisfied with his presidential performance.  I also believe that you are buying into, if not actively helping increase, the ideology chasm that the media is depicting as being the new normal in our culture.

    You are taking things too personal in this paragraph. The others, while I appreciate you taking the time to be thoughtful, you are thinking too hard. To me, this isn't about you, and it isn't about Trump or your Trump loving buddies either. I guess if there is something that I would want you to take away from this conversation, it is that all the reasons used to justify are the same ones used by the ones that are vilified. Myself? I don't see much difference between the Obama hat guys and the MAGA hat guys these days.

    This first paragraph... My "highly narrow view that is colored by my intense dislike of Trump and by default anyone that is satisfied with his presidential performance".... Really? The TDS excuse has been old for a long time. Anymore, it looks like a lame excuse to ignore a legitimate point I am trying to make. It is kind of like labeling anything that isn't glowing about the president "fake news" when it is actually true.

    So 10 years ago, it was my Trump Derangement Syndrome-- had I ran out of gas in front of this place in Detroit, I would have started pushing my truck up the road to go somewhere else?



    I wasn't exactly fired up going to the building department and getting a permit from the lady with the Obama shrine set up on her desk either. Then there was the guy wearing the Obama hat that I didn't hire for the subcontract. I bet that was Trump Derangement Syndrome too. Or maybe it was that I thought even the appearance of politicizing one of my jobs, politicizing buying gas, or politicizing a non-partisan government bureaucracy was in poor taste, unprofessional, and inappropriate.

    Air Force symbol on your car? That means either you or a loved one is/was in the Air Force and nothing more. Pride in serving our country. To make it any more than that would take an idiot, an asshole, or a combination of both.

    The fish? You are a Christian and a man that is committed to his faith. I respect that. I also respect the guy with the crescent and star symbol on his car. And the guy with the fish with feet.
    I’m not taking it personal at all.  I don’t have a MAGA hat to defend.  Maybe you misunderstood my point because I used personal examples.  Your posts clearly said that anyone wearing such a hat is an idiot or an asshole.  I was merely pointing out that is YOUR interpretation based on YOUR perspective and not a fact.  

    People wear symbols for all sorts of personal reasons.  You have made no bones in your posts here about your opinion of Trump and have expressed some very a strong opinions about his supporters.  

    The two puzzle pieces fall nicely into place from my perspective and from some responses I’ve read to your other posts I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks the same.  But it’s all good.  You are of course well within your right to disagree but the vase looks red from my side.  Maybe, just like my professor, you are the only one seeing flowers.

    I wholeheartedly agree.  I don't even think the political forum is a good idea...

    I can’t imagine why.  A bunch of mature grown men engaging in intelligent discourse.  What could go wrong?

    The real problem here is the exponential escalation.

    A fish leads to a fish with feet. That leads to a MAGA hat. That leads to a Robert Conrdad wanabee with a battery on his shoulder. Then someone jacks their 4×4 up high in the air only so someone else can hang plastic bull anatomy off the back of theirs. Next thing you know someone's got a whole fruit bowl for a hat or worse one with two beers and a world wrecking plastic straw to drink them. Where does it all end???

    The horror, the horror, the horror :o
