It's no secret I lean toward the Conservative side politically on some things, I'm libertarian on some things, and even a tad liberal on others, big deal. Some of my best friends are liberals, open minded, and respectful people I'm proud to be seen with, call my friends and have fun and laugh with. None of us judge the book by the cover, none of us put others in boxes. We're all human, right?
So this guy begins this conversation with me because of our mutual passion for motorcycles, cool, I love talking bikes. So we banter back and forth, then he realizes my political affiliation, big deal, most of us have our opinions. Oh, to him, it was a HUGE deal.
I'm just in total, complete, amazement some people that shout out regarding "tolerance, and acceptance," sometimes are the least tolerant, and accepting, of all.
All I can really do is shake my head, laugh at the ignorance of some in our melting pot of a society, and wonder, where my mixed race, adopted children would be today, had I had that same tunnel vision, that same ignorance.
I'm about live and let live, funny I think. The saying comes to mind, "The only truly blind, are those that will not see."
It's ok, I'm as cool as hell, and you guys know it!
