First, superficial but fun.
YOUR TURN TO CHOOSE

Second, the speech I liked most,
The words that really made me think, in Laura’s speech were aimed at politicians and pundits at 13:45, and were, “We’re not the enemy; we’re the people. We’re not your servants. You’re ours.”
This resonated because I really have felt on the defensive for so many years I’ve lost count. Yet I really have done a lot of good things in my life and, despite all my flaws, have been a fairly nice guy. However some simply attack. For example, if you hold a door open for a woman carrying two bags of groceries, she may glare at you and call you a chauvinist pig.
Or, if you point out the sea-ice isn’t melting away as forecast, you get called a “Denier”.
This sort of treatment simply gets old, after three or four decades. Eventually there is “push-back”, and I think that is what has given Donald Trump his power.
