Get to that age when the world stops giving and starts taking I suppose.

I am really baffled by the way McCain seems to have been elevated to the status of some fearless warrior god-like figure all of a sudden. A figure so above reproach that anyone not onboard with the worship of this selfless man seems to be a target for ridicule. Even the UK press seems to have jumped in with lengthy puff pieces about him. All so weird!

I mean, it's not like he spent much time in a combat zone - about 20 hours in total from what I have read. Hardly a "war hero" then.
Then there is his voting record on veterans care and benefits, again hardly anything to be proud of.
There is also his maniacal lust for war, to be fought by others of course, against a whole bunch of other countries because, well, they are not American godammit!

In the real world, he will hardly be missed and will remain a figure of ridicule in the minds of most sane people.

But if you, like poor old Rolling Stone, have come to a point on the Trail where you’ve started fearing your own cynicism almost as much as you fear your own credulity and the salesmen who feed on it, you may find your thoughts returning again and again to a certain dark and box-sized cell in a certain Hilton half a world and three careers away, to the torture and fear and offer of release and a certain Young Voter named McCain’s refusal to violate a Code. There were no techs’ cameras in that box, no aides or consultants, no paradoxes or gray areas; nothing to sell. There was just one guy and whatever in his character sustained him. This is a huge deal. In your mind, that Hoa Lo box becomes sort of a special dressing room with a star on the door, the private place behind the stage where one imagines “the real John McCain” still lives. And but now the paradox here is that this box that makes McCain “real” is, by definition, locked. Impenetrable. Nobody gets in or out. This is huge, too; you should keep it in mind. It is why, however many behind-the-scenes pencils get put on the case, a “profile” of John McCain is going to be just that: one side, exterior, split and diffracted by so many lenses there’s way more than one man to see. Salesman or leader or neither or both, the final paradox—the really tiny central one, way down deep inside all the other campaign puzzles’ spinning boxes and squares that layer McCain—is that whether he’s truly “for real” now depends less on what is in his heart than on what might be in yours. Try to stay awake.

Death has a tendency to allow people to look past a man's failings and instead look at his accomplishments. That's why people will frown on you bringing up Michael Jackson's child interests now that he is deceased.

Does that mean what I think it means? That you have no rebuttal and are left speechless?

If so I LIKE IT !!

If not,





Usually I'm the idiot saying absolutely ridiculous things. . . . . . didn't know I had competition.

That's just rude. I wouldn't presume to be as idiotic as you.

What's the big deal, they hated each other didn't they?
I've refused to go to a few funerals in my time because I wasn't sorry the people were dead, couldn't stand them, good riddance.
I wouldn't dream of disrespecting a grieving family by showing up when everyone knows I don't care that they are dead.
Total non-story about personal grief if anything. Trump would be a hypocrite if he went.

I feel that it is very disrespectful the way Trump dissed McCain. McCain fought in war as a soldier so that people like Trump could live free.

Disagree with the man all you want but you can't deny his sacrifice(S). McCain deserves to be respected.

Gimmie a break. He lost a million dollar jet for the American taxpayers, and wound up a POW because of HIS stupidity. Yes, he served, but he wasn't all that good at it. Then last few years, I've come to see him as an obstructionist to progress.

Excuse me? No he doesn't. You don't know me thus don't proclaim to tell me what to respect.


Who cares what you respect?

You deride a Veteran POW and man who dedicated his life to service of his nation while consistently cheering and defending a draft dodger that is so self obsessed that he hasn't taken a moment in his life to notice what the United States Flag looks like.

This is not good for Trump not to be allowed at McCain’s funeral......First off liberals hate John McCain’s policies and if He where President they would have bashed just as much as Trump.....Secondly this further divides the country and makes this country incapable of forgiveness and understanding politics is not the same thing as policies that any U.S. President has always done weather it is a Democrat or a Republican.

back in 1990 when I relocated to Phoenix AZ, on a Quest...

I was proud to be in support of my new representative, Senator McCain of AZ

(in fact I still liked my former representative for SC, Senator Lindsey Graham) ... but by 1995 and surely by 1997 all my support for both Senators completely eroded then disappeared all together...


i am saddened that McCain, living near Sedona AZ, has died from cancer of the brain...

it is mentioned in Alt Media that Sen. McCain started going loopy around 2002 & completely flipped to Leftist ideology by 2015 when he supported open-borders/sanctuary cities/ and supporting Obama Care from being completely revamped or else overturned.... sadly McCain joins the ranks of others that preceded him like Ted Kennedy & a few others who had all the promise-of-the-world at their fingertips... but at least held-his-own in lifes twists-&-turns including 5 years as a POW

Trump rejected plans for a whitehouse statement praising McCain

Whitehouse flags Returned to Full Staff before McCains Memorial

dum dum dum

That is sealed any future vote on impeachment....

Some things people do not forget.

Welcome to the oval office Mike.

If I were President Trump, I would be relieved that I didn’t have to go and pretend to be sad that someone died who helped organize for a lie-filled dossier about me to be created. Trump disliked McCain and McCain despised Trump...why would anyone actually expect him to attend the funeral even if he wasn’t banned from it. I certainly don’t want people who hate me, or whom I hate to be at my funeral.

president bonespurs is a puss and teeny tiny little man.


lol! Imagine Pwesident Draft Dodger going through something like that. "I like people who don't get captured".
Ugh. I don't see how people can abide this creepy self-serving pompous little excuse of a man.

All of our Presidents have served our country in one way or another before becoming President. I guess we see what happens when we elect a draft-dodger. He was 'too special' to risk his pretty face? Or he knew he was a coward?




Pretty face ?
What side of him are you looking at ? Haha
I know...it's hard to discern
Maybe that is why he acts like he doesn't know if he's coming or going

When we come to the point that we cannot accept that some members of our society deserve respect for the hardships they endured, as citizens who took on the roles of war fighters, for all of us, we are hopeless.

If you don't like what John did during his time in office, then ok. But How can you take away what he did during his time as a Navel Pilot?
