I don't write or talk much about politics. 
I have friends who have strong opposing opinions, 
and I value my friends. 
I don't care about their political or religious beliefs. 
Friendship, in the long run, is more important. 
However, I get some unpleasant arguments, articles, jokes, 
and stories, from people who assume I agree with them, 
so let's get past this if we can. 

I am a Democrat, at least on most issues. 
I am an environmentalist, a Tree Hugger. 
I LOVE trees, and they're slaughtering all the forests around my home 
to make way for malls and car washes! 

I'm for the little guy, although I have wealthy friends 
who I would not do anything to hurt. 
I think rich people do OK without my support. 

I'm not running the world, so who cares what I think? 
I'm always surprised when somebody does. 

A lot of my friends and enemies have died. 
How important do our political arguments seem now? 

The world I can look around and SEE, 
and the friends I can communicate with TODAY, 
are more important than which crooked politicians we're rooting for. 

Nobody's opinion ever changes much anyway. 

I toss this out there just so you know. 
Friends should know. 

So, now that that's out of the way, 
I hope we can get back to the life, music, 
and the personal problems that huddle around us every day. 

I feel better already.
