5 Crazy Possibilities For 2019

It could happenThat’s a common phrase that every parent hears, and even sometimes utters, when talking with children.

Sure, Santa could bring you a motorcycle. If there were a Santa. And he wanted you to die a grisly death in the middle of the highway.

Sure, you could make an A on that exam. If you actually read the book. And studied. And, you know, tried.

But hey, we’re Americans. We take risks well beyond what is reasonable for the expected return.

This adventurous spirit is part of what keeps our age of death lower than other developed nations. It also keeps us at the forefront of innovation.

Before we can take a chance, though, we must think about what’s possible, even if it’s not probable.

So, given today is New Year’s, let’s consider a few things that might happen over the next 12 months. They’d be unexpected but still fall in the realm of “the possible.”

1. President Trump Releases His Tax Returns

Bowing to pressure from a newly-seated Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, President Trump agrees to disclose his much-maligned tax returns.

The documents reveal a head-spinning web of entities that work with and through each other to exploit tax loopholes in real estate law. But they also show something else.

By virtue of his membership payments (written off as a business expense), we find out President Trump is a member of MENSA, the genius club.

Republicans rally, noting they’d always suspected there was something canny about his dealings with China, the deregulation push, and his exit from both the Paris Agreement and the Iranian Nuclear Agreement.

Democrats immediately call for an investigation of MENSA.

We also find out that Trump secretly donated millions to the Sierra Club, which immediately disbands in shame.

2. Trump Resigns

Claiming that he’s met every goal set during his campaign, President Trump resigns.
