    Kind of fits here:

    I heard a report that Trump banned flavored e-cigs. Because of what, a couple hundred deaths? I’m hoping a ban a traditional cigs will follow.

    I think e-cigs are gay, as gay as a Prius full of dicks gay; however it doesn’t effect me - go for it. Just like Bump-Stocks - but that one is still working through the courts.

    Are we really up for POTUS having the power to ban whatever he wants? Not sure that’s a good idea.

    Not a good idea. I agree with you.

    I expect Crying Baker will make vaping a Massachusetts Right and I expect Rollins vaping during her next interview!

    I like Bolton - he's a tough guy (very knowledgeable and driven). Trump decided he's done - fine. He served at the pleasure of the President.

    My understanding is that Trump hired Bolton to give him a differing opinion, but presuming he had the ability to follow through with policy once Trump had decided on a course of action. Bolton decided to be insubordinate and not follow through once Trump had made a decision and that got him canned.

    Sydney Powell says Rod Rosenstein authorized Mueller to go after Michael Flynn's son. Which was the pressure that caused Mike Flynn to plead guilty.

    So what's up with this vaping ban? Why all of a sudden? Is it because it tastes like eating bubble gum or grapes?

    Kids getting hooked on it because it doesn't taste like dirt?

    Or, is big tobacco pushing this from the grave?

    This is why I voted for Trump. I was playing the long game:

    ‘Historic milestone’: Senate confirms 150th Trump judicial nominee

    "The U.S. Senate confirmed President Trump’s 150th judicial nominee Wednesday, helping to fulfill the president’s campaign promise to remake the federal bench with a conservative bent.

    Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham called the number of confirmations a “historic milestone.”

    “These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come,” the South Carolina Republican said."

    That's a big success.

    But don't spread it around too much. The "Trump is playing 4D chess" part of me thinks that maybe all the Sturm und Drang around all the other stuff Trump does is just cover and a shiny object that is designed to keep the lefties looking left - when the judiciary is all being replaced from the right.

    Not sure if big tobacco is pushing it since they purchased 30% of juul for $13 billion. Yes billion.

    Big pharma, absolutely.
    And the states are also definitely pushing it. How much are they loosing in revenue with cigarette sales plummeting.

    Also the deaths and sicknesses are from illegal blackmarket THC pods.

    Why do Hispanic men always do weird shit with their hair? The one you posted in that pic has a really dopey looking man bun. I thought those things were out of style now anyway. He looks really angry too.

    You will notice that this has not been mentioned once in the MSM breathless "Vaping is killing kids" stories.
    Scumbag reporting at it's best.

    I think that oversimplifying the situation. Bolton is a military interventionist, no doubt. But he isnt part of the NEOCON group, basically the people running both Bush Administrations. But just because he is in favor of using military solutions as a rule, doesn't mean he is always wrong. He fully understands the implications of Iran and China, and has been quite consistent about those serious threats to Western Civilization. He is very smart, and very tough. Are you happy that Trump is considering a $15B bailout for Iran to help bring them to a meeting? I am not, and Bolton sure wasn't. The Iranians will never negotiate with integrity and cant be trusted. Trump is doing all the right things using economic power to try and force a change in the Iranian terror state by taking their funds away and avoiding military actions. But there could come a point that requires a military response. Shouldnt someone in the advisory group be able to recommend the tough decision and why? Or do you just have people who say paying Iran to talk to us is a good idea?

    Yup. While we're ragging on him for not being perfect enough he's been doing a lot of good stuff.

    The funny part is Trump is really only acting like a patriotic 1980s ('90s?) Democrat. Today's Democrats have flown so far off into outer space that a look at Trump doing what they would have done in the '80s has them losing their minds.

    I was watching some vaping content creators on YouTube this morning on my way to work.

    It was very similar to what us gun owners go through.

    Wouldn't it be nice to use this as a way to show non gun owners the ridiculousness of banning an item?
    How could one want to ban firearms but be against banning flavored e liquid ? 70685442_2495628337321733_7099364430986608640_n.jpg

    Cory Booker: “I’m the only person on this stage that finds (Justin) Trudeau’s hair very menacing”



    Joe Biden to Bernie Sanders: “For a socialist, you’ve got a lot more confidence in corporate America than I do.”



    Bernie Sanders: “It goes without saying that we must — and will — defeat Trump, the most dangerous president in the history of this country.”



    Kamala Harris: “But the bottom line is this, Donald Trump in office on trade policy, you know, he reminds me of that guy in “The Wizard of Oz,” you know, when you pull back the curtain, it’s a really small dude?”



    Amy Klobuchar: “What [Trump] has done here, has assessed these tariffs on our allies, he’s put us in the middle of the trade war and treating our farmers and workers like poker chips in one of his bankrupt casinos.”



    Pete Buttigieg: “Well, the president clearly has no strategy. You know, when I first got into this race, I remember president Trump scoffed and said he’d like to see me make a deal with Xi Jinping. I’d like to see him making a deal with XI Jinping. Is it just me or was that supposed to happen in like April?”



    Julian Castro to Joe Biden: “Barack Obama’s vision was not to leave 10 million people uncovered. He wanted every single person in this country covered. My plan would do that, your plan would not.”



    Elizabeth Warren: “I was in the United States Senate when 54 Senators said, ‘let’s do background checks, let’s get rid of assault weapons’ and with 54 Senators, it failed because of the filibuster. Until we attack the systemic problems, we can’t get gun reform in this country.”



    Beto O’Rourke: “We’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.”



    Andrew Yang: “My campaign will now give a freedom dividend of $1,000 a month for an entire year to 10 American families”



    Yes, we have literally gotten to the point where presidential candidates are trying to win votes by offering cash handouts. If he wins the election, Yang is promising to give $1,000 a month to everyone in America. Back during the founding of our nation, Benjamin Franklin warned that this would happen someday…
