    TOP STORY:
    Word "Trump" uttered at my party. Everyone gasps and groans.

    Seriously, it was like someone started talking about baby rape. What the hell? I don't know if it's always been like this, but people are so completely polarized and serious about anything political nowadays. The guy was intro-ing a frickin' joke that had nothing to do with anything, basically a "3 guys walk into a bar" type of joke. But before he can get to the second sentence everyone (well... all the women lol, plus 1 or 2 men) groans. It was bizarre. I just grinned though, a little discomfort is good for the soul.

    It used to be "don't talk about abortion", "don't talk about religion", "don't talk about how much money you make". So what are the modern no-no's and yes-yes's?

    Unacceptable: (Note: If you talk about this, the discussion will eventually lead to Trump or Clinton)

    Gender
    Race (don't even talk about race cars. people may get triggered anyways)
    George Bush
    Smoke, pollution
    The Ocean (see pollution)
    Plastic bottles (see pollution)
    Cops
    Cyclists
    Abortion (a.k.a. "women's bodies")
    Soybeans (Monsanto!!!)
    Twitter
    Gays
    Guns
    Clint Eastwood
    MMA
    San Francisco
    North Carolina
    That new housing development
    The military
    Any religion practiced by brown people
    Any country, area, or region with lots of brown people in it
    Education systems, colleges, scholarships, etc
    Food stamps
    Ghostbusters
    Pokemon Go (thanks a lot, young turks)

    Acceptable:

    Gardening
    Pets
    Children
    Food
    Cars (but only if it's a V6, 4 cyl, or hybrid)
    Music
    Diapers
    Traffic
    How much of a moron you were in high school
    Birth control methods (please, ladies.... stop. Please)
    How much you've been working lately
    I hope they build a Starbucks close to here
    Home improvement projects
    My new silverware
    Vacations
    I listened to this podcast about a biodome experiment
    Weather (oh shit, that leads to global warming, which leads to Trump. nvm)
    Beer, Sports (at least there's something good)
    I have actually found that people don't groan about hunting talk. Odd.

    Discuss (but watch yourself).

    I get so drunk at social events to the point I either fall down or piss myself. Talk of trump is the last thing I'm worried about.

    I talk about whatever is most likely to put people off. Read this book, do the opposite.

    I don't think there will ever be another election with so little reasonable discussion about the two main candidates before one of them is elected.

    Depends on the parties you go to. At my age my best friends are all married so they only go to couple parties now which FYI are boring, dry and end early. Remain a bachelor and you still get invited to those parties filled with half naked gurls, drugs, booze ,music, all night binge and the last thing anybody worries about is conversation topics.
    Lol @ couple dinner parties. Literally felt like a dragon trapped in a cage.

    That in itself would definitely be worthy of conversation.

    Ladies with homes my friend... ladies with homes.
    I just drink before it begins, keep it going, and hope someone wants to play cornhole or something. We're sort of new as a group of friends. It's a neighborhood thing. But the men will have to learn to break away for 100% of the duration. Don't even check on the women or anything, just stay away and let them gab.

    What are you making fun of me or something? That's mean. Doing what I can over here. We have rustled together a guy's poker night so that's a start I guess. Maybe I'll wear a Make America Great Again cap to the first go-around, and see what happens.

    To be honest this is starting to sound like an episode of Roseanne.

    Not making fun of you Sherbro. Just stating my experiences with those parties. But like you stated it can get rough at those type of parties. The best thing to do is partner up with one of the wives husband and establish a rapport. Guy talk is always better than listening to women if your not trying to get in their pants. Just awhile back my buddies wife asked me if I wanted to come to their couple dinner party and I laughed and told her politely I'm not married so I don't have to do those things in my free time. Told her I'll be at the strip club if she wants to find me.
    FYI don't rustle poker games, bad omen.

    pff I'm not rustled I was j/k lol that's my whole point. People can't handle anything off center or crude. Always gotta worry about feelings and reactions. Isn't that what the frickin booze is for? Grrpphh. Anyways go ahead make fun, I deserve it.

    Staying away from the ladies is a good start. I got mine and she puts out, so need to subject myself to any unnecessary female group company. Just let her drink and gab, then grope her when we get home.

    To be fair, the word Trump means baby rape in German.
