If he has the sense to step down before angina attacks turn into heart attacks, I would say smart move.   I can't, however, start applauding anyone having chest pains.   If that's what karma or cheeseburgers or an Eternal Something brings, so be it, but I'm not going to be gleeful about it. 

Good news about Bel Edwards, though.  Sort of.  He's pretty much a moderate Republican in a Democrat costume.  And he signed one of the nation's strictest abortion laws.   Still, it says 45 doesn't have a magic wand, and Edwards looks to be better for the state than the "outsider" he ran against.

In the 2017 fiscal year, FedEx owed more than $1.5 billion in taxes. The next year, it owed nothing. What changed was the Trump administration’s tax cut — for which the company had lobbied hard.

Liz Warren should come out with a minimum 15% corporate tax rate.  No company should be able to zero out their tax bill when making large profits.  15% the base rate.  You make a profit you pay at least 15%. 

Would bring in  large chunk of money, and is easy to explain to regular people.  Exxon-Mobil makes a $3B profit and pays zero tax.  That's easy to understand.  They spend a million on lobbying to make Uncle Sam a sucker and pay no tax.

Trump has "set a standard" for presidents "that most mortals won't be able to meet. He out-works them, he out-thinks, he is remarkably resourceful, he's bright, his judgment is second to none."

LK Truscott IV should simply be snuffed out.

The blood won’t wash off of Kiid’s hands. He keeps yelling, “out, out damned spot”, as he stumbles and shambles around the internet. It’s made him very mad indeed.

You do hate the truth.

Nothing new about that.

Evidence of the presence and degree of racial discrimination in the Long Island real estate sales industry.
