NEW YEAR - 20/20
POT CLASS: Last Friday night was out POT class that we gave a sneak peak into POT 20/20. My big MORNING UPDATE on the events will come out on NEW YEARS DAY (as is custom).
This is a very much in demand update as I give out details on what classes will be held, when books will be done, and what the POT 20/20 class goals are. Things have changed here.
PREDICTIONS: One thing people love to see is my predictions for the year. Every year I make predictions – only because I am stupid. There is nothing to gain from it, and a lot to lose. The first two weeks of the year, I have people unsubscribing to the newsletter with nasty-grams along the lines of “You are nuts”, “you are a tool”, etc.
Some of the most venomous comments came when I predicted the Brexit would happen. Even more was when I said that Trump would win the White House. What people didn't understand was how pissed the country was at politicians, and they wanted a non-politician to be a politician. They didn't understand that Trump was on the debate stage with 17 career republican politicians who wanted to win. It would be a dream to win. Trump looks at things different – he refuses to lose.
Then when they said he can't beat Hillary, I laughed. When Rachael said “there is no path to 270, I told our students I am guessing he will get 300+. This was simple math. If you saw how the polls were done, it was easy math. Hillary was ahead by 12 points in polls where 80% of those surveyed were registered democrats. Just so you know....I also though Obama was going to win, even though I thought he would accomplish nothing.
If you look at every MORNING REPORT from December 31, 2018, you will see the same prediction through the year. Let me break this down for you:
