Years ago, I worked as one of Rev. Robert Schuller's body guards (it was something to do on Sundays, I wasn't particularly religious) and one of his sayings was "when given lemons, make lemonade."
Personally, I wasn't excited about either presidential candidate, but I actually think Trump could be a better technology candidate than Clinton would have been. That is because she just didn't seem to fundamentally get why a personal email server was a huge security breach.

Have you lost your mind Rob?

We've been in the game long enough to know they don't know what they don't know.

If Clinton is your only yardstick, it's not clear whether Trump is more or less savvy. Twitter and Facebook does not an IT expert make. And it's unclear whether Clinton's use of an external server was the result of tech ignorance or a calculated risk. It's very unlikely she set it up on her own, and it's equally unlikely the risks weren't laid out for her in advance.

In my opinion, Trump is a tech clown. The typical social media user who fancies himself a tech expert, much like he fancies himself a foreign policy and terrorism expert and military strategist.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
