Goodbye, Merrick Garland, we hardly knew you. Wonder who will be his SCOTUS pick?

Hah! I'm guessing Trump will be a face and a voice. Will be interesting to see who emerges as the one to get things done.

Dow was down 1k pts at one point overnight. Now, markets are basically flat. Guess they got over it.

10yr bonds rate up a little (0.08) to 1.94

Malcom is the SCOTUS justice we deserve.

I'm with Obama on the unity front. Republicans have pres + houses. I'll be interested to see what they do with the very real issues the country is facing*. No excuses.

First day of President Elect Trump and I think I'm going to have to divorce my family, because those fuckers are batshit insane assholes.

Trump really is bad.

Last time they did, they accomplished absolutely shit.

He's not good! Neither was the alternative though. The puffin from the other thread really is correct.

Heres what Im hoping for:
1) forget the wall, just work on reducing illegal immigration.
2) goodbye ACA, which neve =r sgould have been legal to begin with.
3) no/little change on nafta (this is where im most concerned)
4) tax simplification (unlikely, we probably get massive debt instead)

This is a list of what we're hoping he does...Why would you hope for that?

Oh yeah, I just kinda assumed whoever he nominated would be better than Obama/Clinton.

Because as bad as Trump is, Mike Pence is not better?

I do not know a single fact about Pence. Not even what he looks like.
