The one I saw was about Hillary only...I have no idea what I was looking at before, but it wasn't about her ;)
Well, politics is one of those words that can cover a lot, obviously. This came up a couple of weeks ago with a bunch of us sitting around. There were people from the States who live here part time. The conversation turned to politics and a few of the people who live here full time sort of disappeared, myself among them.
We talked about that later; their position, politics is a great conversational topic and enjoyed a lot at home in the States - very reasonable. And I realized that since living here, I don't discuss politics unless I know someone REALLY well.
Locally, it's seriously hot button subject, and since you don't always know who you are talking to (as in, who is related to who you are talking to), it's a subject best discussed very carefully, if at all.
Also, for myself, after living in the Virgin Islands and being livid most of the time about the political scene, I made a decision to act when I can and forget the rest of the viper pit.
So...is my head in the sand? Hey, I'm an American, I live here and I can't vote for Prez. We have very nice sand...;)
