Re: [Harp-L] RE: Politics and Blues Harp

I have to agree. I also have the same situations. Some are far left others are far right, but we don't discuss religion or politics at all. 
I will never judge a person by this or by what musical instrument they play. 
The style and so forth. 

I am an Puerto Rican American Blues, Rock, Folk, Blue Grass , Country, Classic Rock Harmonica Newbie.

And I think the "don't agree with" part is key here -- one of my best friends holds a political view vastly different than my own, but I haven't given him up as a friend.

But the occasional comment? Mild annoyance, please get on with the music.
