I posted a simple status update on my Facebook profile this week:
The response was quite surprising. Sixty-seven people commented.
Remember, this is my personal page. I’m not a celebrity or political figure, just a guy with some friends on Facebook. And many of those 67 people left long, well-reasoned comments.
Clearly the post struck a chord with people. And obviously, it was timely.
As I suspected, people had all sorts of views. Here’s a smattering of some of the more interesting comments:
The “if someone chose not to work with me because of my political views, then I wouldn’t want to work with them” view was fairly common in the thread. But it’s a viewpoint that’s convenient, in some cases. What if you’re desperate for work? Are you going to stick with those guns? How far does that mentality go?
