Yeah, last few devices I've bought had something very close to AOSP with only a minimum of extra apps installed, apps that aren't causing me any problems. Android itself doesn't vary a lot between versions any more, the chances are the version you have varies little - from a user's point of view - from the latest greatest. This is a far cry from the early days of Android where:

1. Every phone had a heavily customized version of Android, in part because stock Android wasn't very pretty, but those customizations were usually horrible and bug ridden. As an example, my T-Mobile Slide 3G's dialer would crash if you changed from portrait to landscape.

2. Android itself was barely feature complete. Third party tools were needed to provide a decent launcher, decent keyboard, and so on, as well as tethering and other features carriers were nervous about.

It just isn't as important any more.

Trump's speeches were warm and inclusive, saying essentially "we're in this together, we can win, we can do better".

LOLWHUT?? Only if you're a WASP who wants to ignore/shut out anyone who isn't.

(Disclaimer: I certainly qualify as a WASP. But I'm not so blind as to fail to recognise that a very large proportion of the rest of the world isn't.)

I don't think anyone on the left has a clue how ineffective their campaign of crying, whining, and insulting is.

I think a very large proportion of Americans have been conditioned to regard any facts that they don't care for as "lies" and/or "insults".

Wind power in particular could also be a great way to ensure that grazing rights on lands are maintained, since there's no reason why a wind farm and ranching would have to be incompatible, and with the land already being several stages away from being pristine, no reason not to continue to leave grazing rights.
