It's hard to know what this year will bring. I listened to a really scary speech by Ronald Reagan in 1964 (I think that was the year) on YouTube tonight. It was so scary I decided to share it on Twitter. I think he was a Democrat back then because it was for a Goldwater event. The main think I noticed was how many of the issues he talked about are still issues today - only worse... especially the deficit/national debt.

I am not sure how these work after posting so I will just let you choose.
Let me know what your impression is of the similarities.
I haven't heard any campaign speeches like this in the ones I have heard for many years. I didn't follow Reagan that fully to know what was going on at that time. I would have been in elementary school I think. :-) I have a t-shirt with one of his quotes that I really like. In the past several elections I have heard him referred to by the GOP.
I am late posting because I got involved with watching OF Mice and Men - the Gary Sinise version of 1992. After starting the movie, I realized that I had watched it before but didn't remember what the story line was. I discovered some parts I didn't recall, so maybe I didn't watch all of it.
For me, it had a lot of different thoughts... on how people were treated, how they survived, what you had to put up with to have a job, abusive and power-relationships in families and jobs, to lack of law and order, plus the lives of those with developmental disabilities when there was no one who cared. It was filled with a lot of topics.
I have never read the book, so I wondered how true it was to the original story.
2022 is becoming quite a year. I will try to find some photos I have taken recently. I am working on my posting graphics.
