In this week’s episode, HM and MC talk politics! You know, that thing no one’s supposed to talk about. (Stay tuned…because next week they’re gonna talk religion!) #Sarcasm
Although, listen to the show and find out why that would not be as totally shocking as you hope it would be!
The guys discuss the outcome of the Presidential election and the amusing aftermath. SPOILER ALERT: Neither HM nor MC voted for Trump…or even the same candidate…and they’re still friends!
The guys also touch on some of the most ridiculous propositions on the California ballot and MC goes on one of his epic rants about Prop. 57 and how it’s a completely epic shit storm of stupidity.
On a related note, we talk at the beginning of the show about “the third rail” and how the idea of the phrase is to not touch the electrified rail or you will be electrocuted. Fair enough, but if we don’t touch it together (You just read that in Ryan Reynold’s voice as Deadpool didn’t you) we can’t get anywhere. Unless the train touches the third rail it just sits still.
The start to a civilized, open discussion is to know where the other person is coming from and to respect their beliefs and viewpoints. I don’t mean accept it when your partner tells you they think the new McGuyver is the best TV ever, understand that you likely won’t sway their opinion, but at least you know not to bash mullets.
Talk to your coworkers in a civil manner and everything will be fine. MC and I differ on so many big topics, we talked about it early on, agreed to disagree and wouldn’t you know it, everything went fine.
I’ll leave you by paraphrasing our closing remarks and the Bible:
“Whatever, dude. Just don’t be a dick about it.”
