After the Sept 11, 2001 attacks there seemed to be a “Terrorist Hunting Permit” bumper sticker on just about every truck in my home state of Texas. Every once in awhile, I still see them. Usually they’re faded to the point of being unintelligible, like relics of a bygone era. Now, they’re back — but with a 2016 twist.
Missouri Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, is selling bumper stickers emblazoned with the words “ISIS HUNTING PERMIT 2016” to raise money for his campaign in the run-up to a competitive four-way Republican primary on August 2.
Each sticker is selling for a $10 donation. And for $100, it’ll come autographed by Rob O’Neill, the former SEAL who claims to have killed Osama Bin Laden, The Associated Press reports. That’s a heck of a deal, especially considering that the permit won’t expire until “WE DEFEAT THIS EVIL.”
President Donald Trump hit back at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday with a letter saying he was "sorry to inform" her that her trip to Brussels, Belgium and Afghanistan would be canceled due to the government shutdown, just one day after Pelosi proposed cancelling the State of the Union address for similar reasons.
