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.

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.

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 thought John McCain had cancer treatments scheduled this week?
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.
