I work in a highly politicized facility (international news) and the arguments (and stupidity that goes along with it) is maddening. Yet we all laugh past it at some point, get the job done, eat lunch together, hoist a few on occasion, and share stories about our family and life outside of work, Netflix favorites, our favorite restaurants, our kids latest victories or set backs, etc. I think some of my work friends have ridiculous political arguments, and they give me crap about mine, and then we laugh.
Ragbrai is much the same: sharing what we have in common: riding, the lovely Iowa countryside, the Iowa hospitality, the Iowa food. There is so much we share in common that politics is a speck in my life during Ragbrai.
Don’t let the politically nonsensical, bombastic, racist/ethnocentric comments spouted out by certain politicians freeze you out of enjoying your life, because then they win. They will be crushed under the weight of their own arrogance and stupidity.
You gotta roll on and ride on! Hope you make it to Ragbrai 2017!
