Golden Trump proves wildly popular at CPAC

By Michael Warren | CNN With the first full day of the Conservative Political Action Conference underway, there’s already an indisputable star: an outrageously golden statue of Donald Trump wearing shorts and flip-flops. The more than 6-foot-tall statue turned heads as it was wheeled into the Hyatt Regency Thursday evening while CPAC attendees picked up their registration and milled about the hotel. The statue was on its way to the conference’s exhibit hall, where it found a home in a booth for a conservative nonprofit called Look Ahead America. Tommy Zegan, a California-based artist, created the Trump statue in response to the multiple pieces of art mocking Trump. “Two years ago, when I saw all those statues of naked Trump and Trump on a toilet, I said, ‘You know what? I can do better,’ ...

Temporarily delay Prop. 19 changes

In November, voters narrowly approved Proposition 19, which combined property tax portability with changes to other property laws resulting in significantly higher tax revenues compared to before. That will come as an unwelcome surprise to many voters who were misled by a costly advertising campaign into thinking that Prop. 19 merely helped seniors, disabled individuals and wildfire victims who wished to move to a new home. Hidden in Prop. 19 was the repeal of Proposition 58, a 1986 constitutional amendment that said parents could transfer a home and some other property to their children without any change to the property tax bill. Under Proposition 19, those same properties will be reassessed to market value as of the date of transfer, with only a limited exclusion for family farms and f...

The Least Common Zodiac Signs & Birthdays

When you think through the zodiac signs of all the people you know, are there a few signs that show up pretty sparsely on your list? You might be able to chalk that up to the fact that we're all naturally drawn toward certain astrological personality types, since the compatibility between zodiac signs varies. But you may also be able to attribute this disparity to the fact that there are actually fewer people born under certain zodiac signs than others. And when it comes to the least common zodiac signs, you might be surprised by how things add up.
