Hillary Clinton's Dedication

Last night Hillary Clinton dedicated her victory to: "...everyone who's ever been counted out, but refused to be knocked out...and everyone who works hard and refuses to give up".

Something for every writer to take to heart, I feel.

Yes, and she looked jubilant...
Her makeup, by the way, is particularly stunning this campaign...she never looks weary, her eyes always shine...
After saying as you quote, she smiled and said: " And this one's for you!" which I thought was great......there's nothing better than the personal touch!
Hillary's a strong clever lady...

Yes, that's a good one. And of course it comes from the mature one with much experience, set next to a celebrity with much less, so it seems especially apt for the current scene for writers.

Another lackey of the elite. Good old Hillary. Ever wonder why far-right wing Fox News media emperor, Rupert Murdoch is a financial supporter of the Clinton campaign? The US is now firmly a fascist state, & why people over here should get excited by the masquerade put on for the public is hard to fathom.

Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury within the Reagan administration, Paul Craig Roberts in a recent article, What Do We Stand For put it thus.

"Americans traditionally thought of their country as a "city upon a hill," a "light unto the world." Today only the deluded think that.
Roberts quotes Arthur Silber:
The Bush administration has announced to the world, and to all Americans, that this is what the United States now stands for: a vicious determination to dominate the world, criminal, genocidal wars of aggression, torture, and an increasingly brutal and brutalizing authoritarian state at home. That is what we stand for."

Addressing his fellow Americans, Silber asks the paramount question, "why do you support " these horrors?"

Most of human activity is corrupt in one way or another, I find, Andrew K. All we can do is look for the good, and take from it anything that helps us survive - and I liked that quote.
