The Conversation That my Brother-in-law’s “Reagan Revolution” T-Shirt Provoked.

Via on Jan 11, 2012


I don’t see my brother-in-law, Bob too often. We disagree on just about every major thing two people could disagree on. However, we love each other and enjoy one another’s company. So even though Bob likes to provoke (much like his hero Glenn Beck) sometimes it’s best to put political/religious/social differences aside and enjoy being together.

Our politcal views should not force us to dislike family members, friends, colleagues, neighbors or strangers. It’s ok to disagree and move on. Look for reasons to love one another. Love is bigger than politics. Love unites. Let’s love more.

  2. Oh my God. I didn't even notice that the names were Joe and Bob until my cousin Joe Kletzel just "liked" this post on Facebook.

    And this cartoon might well be about us, with the names reversed, of course.

    Love you, Joe.
