I think issues like this really say a lot about the posters.

It takes a certain level of maturity and emotional intelligence I think to separate a persons politics from the person themselves.

I might disagree with his politics, I could flame him all day for his politics.

But and the end of the day he is a human being suffering form a horrible illness, and he deserves the same levels of sympathy as anyone else

I said I before on this thread but I think part of the problem is the detachment people have between politicians and real life, they look at politicians as if they are just some character in a movie or Tv Show.

All I know for sure is that there are some really sick and messed up folks on this site who are celebrating a old man getting brain cancer.

Makes me sick.

Its like a lot of stuff on ATS and the internet in general, I think there are a lot of cowards who hide behind their screens to spout of this kind of hate. Walk into a bar and start celebrating a man getting brain cancer and you would probably find yourself on your back.

Not about hos politics.

Its about him being a terrorist sympathiser who supported the likes of ISIS and A Nursa.

This is not a innocent typical old man but a example of the pure evil and rot that sits in DC.

McCain, tony blair, George w Bush, Hillary , George Soros, Rothchilds , putin, kim jung un, Al babadi , Assad , mugabe.

All sick #s that deserve to die and will have so sympathy for when the time comes.

But here have a sick bag.

There is a lot of vitriol on this thread.

All I have to had is may his passing be peaceful and painless.

That's what I would want for me or anyone else for that matter.

Death is nothing but another chapter in one's lives....what that chapter is, no one knows and probably will never know.

McCain is an operative of the devil and the brain cancer is part of the deal. McCain the warmonger should have been on Gods side. Now he's doomed to hell for an eternity. It will make his Vietnam prison stay look like the best Hotel on earth.

McCain should have embraced Love and selfless service to his fellow man, but sadly he slept with the devil and now the devil wants his soul. McCain did this to himself. He should reach out to Jesus before he dies, but likely you won't hear him do that. He is destined to Hell for sure. Sadly the Devil claims another soul.

Tonight, various Senators are using John McCain's illness/absence as an excuse for not getting much done this Summer and Fall. Boy are they relieved and thankful to John for giving them an "out".

With respect, no.

Look, there are folk abroad on the planet who, by rights, ought to have been snuffed out by now, people who deliberately cause such damage to the lives of people both within, and without their own nations, who represent such a threat to the species in general, by whatever means, that they ought to be edited out of humanity like a punctuation error in a manuscript.

But NO ONE deserves to suffer THAT way. By all accounts, there are people who are justifiable targets for a bullet between the eyes, and although no one would WANT to live in that reality, thats the one we have to deal with. But no one deserves the sort of damage that a glioblastoma does to a person. Instant, clean removal from the world to protect it from predatory behaviour? Though its ugly, I understand that. But being glad a person has a brain tumour? That is a level of inhumanity which only places a person who harbours it in the same camp as the target of their disdain.

Take a look at this statement from the U.S. Senate website...

"proxy voting - The practice of allowing a senator to cast a vote in committee for an absent senator. Senate Rule XXVI provides that proxies may not be voted when the absent senator has not been informed of the matter on which he is being recorded and has not requested that he be so recorded."


Would this work in John McCain's case, for the upcoming ObamaCare repeal votes?

I am no fan of McCain.

However, glioblastoma is a horrid diagnosis and will, no doubt, be terrifying for him, his family and his friends. No one deserves that.

Yeah....some people do.

Have you ever seen what a glioblastoma of the brain does to someone? Have you seen or cared for someone with it? If not, maybe reserve your pronouncement until you've witnessed it. I posted earlier about how I just spent 4 months watching my sister's husband die (a week ago tomorrow) from this disease. I think McCain is the devil himself, but after seeing what a person with a glio, and their families, go through, I wouldn't wish it even on him. It's hell.

It's encouraging that John McCain is not letting the Brain Cancer diagnosis interfere with his job as Senator. At this point, he's no "sicker" than he was just before the diagnosis.

Senator McCain will be in Washington tomorrow for the crucial ObamaCare-related vote "To Proceed", or "Not to Proceed".

""Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., will return to the Senate on Tuesday, his office announced on Monday night. McCain, 80, has been home in Arizona following a brain tumor diagnosis.

The announcement of McCain's return comes as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to call a vote Tuesday to begin debate on proposed health care legislation.""

Hopefully John McCain's appearance in Washington tomorrow will teach his fellow Republican Senators what BRAVERY is all about.

The man has a 14 month life-expectancy, but is still acting as if he will be around for 14 more years. Why? Because he loves the country and cares about the future of America for his children, grandchildren, and their eventual children.

I hope the few Senators who are against ObamaCare Repeal, are inspired to turn away from the dark side (accepting $$, favors, etc. from ObamaCare stakeholders) and do what they've promised to do, time and time and time and time again!

I think this Health Care thing is tearing up this country.

People are freaking out.

Trump has said that Universal (one payer) will bankrupt our country.

What is really left. We are going to have to let people die.

I am one of those people. I will fight to the end.

But the truth is. I don't, and many of us, don't have a chance in hell.

We need to be honest with ourselves, as Americans.

Some will be left behind and soon forgotten.

We are a species of survival.

I show zero empathy for those that are incapable of empathy. Looks like his toxic beliefs caught up with his toxic brain.

Well, there are other pockets...
Seems the special inspector general for Afghan reconstruction has found a penny or two being pissed away. Kinda tough to reconcile, isn't it?

In 2014, he found that the U.S. had spent $486 million on a fleet of barely used cargo planes, which were eventually sold for scrap metal. The following year, he found that the Pentagon spent $43 million on a single gas station, $36 million on a command-and-control facility that had never been used, and $150 million on private villas and luxury meals for “five to 10 employees” of a development task force. But aid money continues to flow — and the U.S. spends billions per year on aid to the Afghan government, which critics say is deeply corrupt. Some of the aid even ends up in Taliban hands.

I couldn't watch it but John McCain sounded pretty good on the senate floor today.

I thought John McCain had cancer treatments scheduled this week? Thought he was going to fly in, vote, and return back to Arizona for those treatments.

It's 3 days later, and he's now holding a live press conference, attempting to drive a final nail into ObamaCare repeal.

Perhaps he can get the treatment in D.C.. I don't think it weakens you as much as it did in the 1990's and earlier.

It depends on the type of treatment (chemo or radiation) AND the type of each type of treatment. Also each person reacts differently; some just get tired, others get deathly sick. Treatments do improve all the time, and become more targeted. They even have wafers now that they can place and leave in the area of brain that needs treatment.

I would imagine that he's getting the best of the best treatments possible, and probably also every treatment and counteracting treatment for any symptoms he might have as a result of the chemo and/or radiation.

Thankyou for that REALLY GOOD up-to-date information, KansasGirl! I didn't think that John McCain would intentionally reduce his life-expectancy, just to vote on legislation.
