We have some real political differences among us, but we all share the same goals: clean air and water, injury free workplaces, safe transportation systems, to name a few of the good things that can come from regulation.
Don't fall into the trap of thinking about politics in your workplace too much. Just work hard, be cheerful, ignore distractions.
The best politics is no politics.
Henry M. Jackson
To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace.
