    It's become a real chore in my rounds to politely divert conversation away from what appears to be a highly triggered political environment.

    To me, all the angst and anger is some big blame game ,cyclical logic where the 'offended' simultainoeusly places faith in the very system that failed them in the first place

    Making only indirect reference to the event alluded to, it's clear that a vendor in another occupation decided to steer a different course. I would speculate that in a business where you don't personally interact with the customer for every transaction you can be bolder than you might otherwise, but in the long run I doubt it's a good idea. You don't want to tick off 50% of your potential clientele.

    Some are so frustrated with the political environment they will be turned off regardless of what party you may be endorsing.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.
