So Trump may be saving California from nuclear destruction from North Korean missiles, by preventing them from testing.

Do we think they will be appreciative.

Yesterday The New England Patriots visited the White House. Only about half showed up compared to their 2015 visit to see Obama. Even Tom Brady didn't show.

Time magazine selected Colin Kaepernick as one of the most influential athletes of the year, even though he no longer has a job.

I dunno, he influenced many people I know to stop watching NFL games. If that is the qualifier for "influential", then yes...he was very influential.

Just caught the fake news by the NYTimes and Boston Globe about the size of the team that showed up.

Fake news gets propagated and the corrections and retractions seldom do. Leads to many being misinformed.

Sometimes I wonder if it isn't intentional knowing the bad info will become known and the corrections will not. The Associated Press has experienced quite a few "erroneous" reports lately that gets a lot of exposure and then the subsequent corrections get little.
******TRIGGER WARNING****** If offended, go find yourself a safe place and color a pretty picture.

My rep said he would consider supporting HB560. https://www.texasfirearmscoalition.com/ ... since-2007

Because it's the MSM I just assumed the real story was that just about every Patriot player, coach, staff member and 40,000 fans showed up at the White House.

The president says that Iran is "not living up to the spirit" of the nuclear deal but Tillerson has said that Iran "has been compliant" with the nuclear deal. Neither one is providing any specifics. What are we to believe?

Actually the question was not who? but what?...

I belive the quotes are accurate and seem to be conflicting, don't you agree?

Speaking of what's true to believe, here's a thought: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=8MqTOEospfo :drool:
