    Once his hand-picked AG takes away your weed money, your tax bill will look like the one you used to have in Illinois.

    Doubtful. Two reasons, 1, Trump came to Colorado and said it wouldn't happen. 2, even if it does repeal, Colorado has a Constitutional amendment capping taxes.

    Colorado's TABOR amendment restricts revenues for all levels of government (state, local, and schools). Under TABOR, state and local governments cannot raise tax rates without voter approval and cannot spend revenues collected under existing tax rates if revenues grow faster than the rate of inflation and population growth, without voter approval.

    If short-term gains are your judge of a great president, he is your man.

    Will you be coming back here telling us what a moron he is when the market corrects? And if it doesn't correct, it will be the first time in my adult life and career that it hasn't.

    Money gains aside, is this really your guy? Always curious about that.

    The market has priced in the new corporate tax environment. That should be in place for some time. I'm always wary of a bubble burst with repeated high gains. However, I'm hopeful that it will be contained to the crypto currency market once folks finally come to the realization that they are buying something worth nothing .

    Trump was never my choice, but when it comes down to Hillary vs Trump, no way I'm voting for her. For the first year, republicans have a conservative SC justice, tax reform, immigration reform, etc. I shudder to think of what SCJ Hillary would have put in place and Obama policies she would have doubled down on.

    Okay, understood. I didn't vote for her, either. That said, now that all of these things are in place, he can peacefully pass in his sleep and you'd be OK, right?

    We have to build that border wall first, though, right?

    A museum with a sense of humor, love it.

    Trump asked to borrow a Van Gogh painting for the White House. He was offered a golden toilet instead. (link) Chicago Tribune

    "The emailed response from the Guggenheim's chief curator to the White House was polite but firm: the museum could not accommodate a request to "borrow" a painting by Vincent Van Gogh for President Donald and Melania Trump's private living quarters. Instead, wrote the curator, Nancy Spector, another piece was available, one that was nothing like "Landscape with Snow," the lovely 1888 Van Gogh rendering of a man in a black hat walking along a path in Arles with his dog.

    The curator's alternative: an 18-karat, fully functioning, solid gold toilet - an interactive work entitled "America" that critics have described as pointed satire aimed at the excess of wealth in this country. For a year, the Guggenheim had exhibited "America" - the creation of contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan - in a public restroom on the museum's fifth floor for visitors to use. But the exhibit was over and the toilet was available "should the President and First Lady have any interest in installing it in the White House," Spector wrote in an email obtained by the Washington Post.

    The artist "would like to offer it to the White House for a long-term loan," wrote Spector, who has been critical of Trump. "It is, of course, extremely valuable and somewhat fragile, but we would provide all the instructions for its installation and care."

    Sara Eaton, a Guggenheim spokeswoman, confirmed that..."

    "Trump Spoke To Witnesses About Matters They Discussed With Special Counsel"

    "Trump's Lawyer Obtained Restraining Order To Silence Porn Star"

    "35 and counting: The list of senior officials who have left the Trump administration (so far)"

    Just another batch of headlines from 1600 Penn during our phase of the new normal.

    While DTM's statement was true then, that 20% (mine was 35%) is long gone...between the bond market reaction, accelerated interest rates coming, inflation and recession coming...and you add in the tariff talk, be ready to weep when opening those 401K statements. #americawasgreat
