I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, and today is my first full day since before I was hospitalized. It feels good to be back in the saddle, but I bet a buck that I’ll be pooped before my work is done.

From DCReport: Donald Trump told voters he would double economic growth from about 2% annually under Obama to more than 4%.
But Trump’s own planners at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) don’t think that will happen. Using current tax rates, they project that federal tax revenues will grow at a slower pace than under President Obama through 2022, just the opposite of what you’d expect to see if the overall economy was suddenly growing at double the pace of the Obama years. The OMB numbers are presented in a new federal document, not mentioned in other major news organizations’ reporting, and analyzed by DCReport.
A doubling of economic growth to 4% annually would produce a much bigger increase in individual income tax revenues. That’s because as incomes rise so do the rates at which they are taxed. At 4% annual increases in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) incomes would soar, pushing many people into higher tax brackets on their increased incomes.

From Daily Kos: Here’s some schadenfreude for you: Breitbart is a hot mess. Their problems go beyond the recent firing of editor Kate McHugh or Milo Yiannopoulos’ resignation in February: the number of companies willing to advertise on Breitbart.com is down to just 26, according to the Washington Post.
The number of advertisers on the alt-right site Breitbart.com has dropped 90 percent in recent months, from 242 in March to 26 in May, according to data from MediaRadar, a New York firm that tracks online advertising. Among those that continue to advertise on the site include a gentleman’s club in Northern Virginia, a golf resort near the coast of Spain and the conservative foundation Judicial Watch.
This means that Breitbart has lost over 2,200 advertisers total.
It couldn’t happen to nastier Nazis. Another Alt-Right Nazi site says that Jew advertisers are strangling Breitfart of revenues, I tried to find a list of the last 26, but could not. RESIST!!
