Carter sold his own farm



I really have very few birthday wishes today

This is one of them.


Anyone remember the Vietnam War?


A question for the Generals


Trump: Hundreds more would have died in Texas if gun laws were stricter

He's a danger to America.
But you know that.

At a press conference Tuesday in South Korea, Trump was asked if he would consider seeking “extreme vetting” for gun purchasers similar to what he has advocated for individuals entering the U.S. from other countries. Trump said such screenings would not have stopped Sunday’s gunman, who killed 26 people inside a Texas church, and could potentially have stopped another gun owner from confronting the shooter.


Rodrigo Duterte is a terrorist

a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.


Has anyone heard any reporters on TV or radio...

...call this contradiction out?
Considering what General Kelly said today.

But the wealthy need tax cuts?


No one supports the Las Vegas shooter however...

...when terror was raining down on hundreds of thousands in Bahgdad, and while mothers and their children were being slaughtered, poll after poll revealed up to 75% supported W's illegal invasion and mass murder.

We live in strange times.

2 Scoops responds to tragedies and other topics


On the Las Vegas gunman:
"This was a sick person, but probably smart." He congratulated the police for acting so quickly, and said many of the victims he met "support what I do."

On the hurricane response:
"We got very high marks. We got A-pluses."

On Puerto Rico's problems before the storm:
Trump said the electric grid was a disaster. "They've got a lot of problems, and on top of that they get hit by two hurricanes."

On San Juan's mayor:
"We have a mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico who didn't attend meetings, who didn't work with FEMA, who really did not do a very good job, in fact did a very poor job, and she was the lone voice that we saw and of course that's the only voice the media wanted to talk to... she's not a capable person."

On criticism of him tossing paper towels into a crowd of victims:
"They had these beautiful, soft towels. Very good towels.... I was having fun, they were having fun. They said, 'throw 'em to me! Throw 'em to me Mr. President!"

On responding to tragedies:
"In one sense you hate to see it, but in another sense you feel like you can do a good job, you're helping people, so you feel good."

On Israel and Palestine:
"We're gonna work [toward a peace deal]... I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem."

On the Middle East:
"The Middle East when I took over was a mess, and it's much less of a mess now but we have problems."

On the Iran deal:
"I can tell you I'm very unhappy with the deal.... They're literally causing trouble, predominantly in the Middle East. I believe they're funding North Korea.... that doesn't pertain to the deal but in my opinion it does because it's called the spirit of a deal.... You will see what I will be doing but Iran is a bad player and they will be dealt with as a bad player."

On the filibuster rule:
"They have to get rid of it... It's a death sentence. I told Mitch McConnell that the other day, and frankly" he's not there yet.

On his tax plan:
"I'm really focused on the middle class, and I'm really focused on companies because companies create jobs.... We're going to have the biggest tax cut in history."
