WOD for Tuesday 10-13-15. Details on the Saturday event. One request regarding Election season.October 13, 2015
As a Government/Political Science major in college, I learned long ago that you are but a an insignificant cog in a grand machine, global in scope,and controlled mostly by the Illuminati and the Military/Industrial complex. Your influence on the political process is nonextistant, and to feel otherwise is an hilarious illusion. BUT, I realize some of you still cling to the fantasy of being “part of the process” and are likely to have strong opinions about the upcoming presidential election. As the electoral season progresses and your passions rise, do me one enormous favor. While it’s not my place to restrict what you talk about, nor am I interested in doing so; but please don’t make anyone at the gym feel uncomfortable. Be aware that within our membership we have a wide range of political sensibilities going from one extreme to the other and likely covering all points in between. Let’s all unite behind the one thing we have in common, (a desire to get a Sub 3 Fran) and respectfully agree to disagree on Candidate XYZ. or at the very least, take it out to the dumpsters before you start any passioned political debate.
This was not at all prompted by any “incident”, just want to preempt anyone feeling like the gym is not a place where they can feel welcome.
