How President Trump will govern is a huge wild card. If he carries through on his anti-trade, pro-tariffs rhetoric, we believe it would be highly detrimental to economic growth. Tax cuts, an infrastructure spending plan, and reduced business regulation might offer offsetting boosts, but they would bring the problem with the deficit and debt back into the spotlight and likely sink the U.S. dollar.

due to the falling costs of solar and wind energy, will the market share of renewable energy continue to increase (if not at the current rate) even as Trump seeks to deregulate the coal and oil industries?

is it still ok to wear New Balance shoes, provided that you bought them prior to the Trump endorsement? have the aesthetics of New Balances been tainted to the point where you can't even admire a nice pair of 993s without drawing comparison to people who post 10-star reviews of Triumph of the Will on IMDb? will Trump integrate New Balances into his rallies and deportations?

will it soon be a matter of progressive pride to wear imported clothes and drive imported cars and use imported appliances?

isn't a lot of mass transit funded at the local/regional/state level? I feel like with that one, relatively affluent areas will just raise taxes and pass more bond measures.

Congress has been known to pass transit aid for the states, many centuries ago

yeah. I guess my instinct is that states that are more small government with little to no social safety nets or areas that are poorer are gonna get hit harder than say NYC or MA.

actually not remotely trivial...

But most of these ballot-approved transit projects are also designed to rely heavily on matching funds from the federal government, and that may run counter to the priorities of a Republican-led House, Senate, and executive office. The GOP’s 2016 platform articulates a strong stance against funding transit, noting that “we propose to phase out the federal transit program.” It’s possible that when Congress’s current authorization of transportation spending expires in 2020, conservative leaders could create a highway/transit funding formula that’s less favorable to transit. And newer funding programs that have helped drive bus and rail projects under the Obama administration, such as the DOT’s TIGER grant program, could disappear.

I had my first sensitivity training/harassment workshop today. There was a dark irony to it. I really wondered if we might see some of the key employment protections we were discussing get repealed.

one month passes...

do Green Day have another American Idiot in them, or is it up to a younger band (SOAD? RATM? TØP?) to carry the agit-rock torch?

if political rap and punk are really on a roll by the fall of 2020, might it be prudent to reelect Trump so as not to halt the momentum and deprive ourselves of some really inspiring CDs?
