Post election insanity, and Mike Rowe or David Pogue wisdom to bring us all back to normal

I have friends from all religions, political parties, sexual preferences, genders, and even several countries including Russia and what I know from having these friends is that we are all a lot more alike and actually agree on a lot more than we disagree on. My friends might not all like each other or ever want to hang out in the same room, but if they did they'd find the reason they are all my friends. Trump is now OUR President elect and like it or not denigrating him before he's even done anything AS President is like painting a picture of a monster and expecting to see something different when you're done. Protesting a legitimately won election is not good for democracy. Yes the electoral college is an upsetting feature of our democracy when the popular vote outnumbers it and for most of us this isn't the first time we've seen that happen. So protest that, instead of hey ho Donald Trump has got to go, let's try hey ho, the electoral college has got to go and so next election it could be one man, one woman, one transgender, one vote.

In the meantime here are some things to think about to broaden your mind a little no matter what side of the aisle you're on.
