2017 is here, and for those that follow the news, this is THE thread for discussing all things political and otherwise news worthy! Major news events throughout the year may warrant their own talkbacks, but for general discussion of politics (the type of stuff you might see on the evening news), use this thread! The rules on political discussion can be found here. Anyway, the tumultuous 2016 election is over, but there is still plenty to discuss in the world of politics (President and Congress related, or otherwise). Comments?!?
