Agreed, .....

Drives me nuts the collective disingenuous over the top constant commentary of mourning that takes place when ever someone 'insert popular named person' dies.

I mean no disrespect to his military service, but I think he was a miserable failure at being a human being. But we're not allowed to talk about that anymore because 'it's disrespectful to speak ill of the dead'

And this is what happens when her good daughter marries beneath her. (paraphrasing)

Yet. Just a bit of advice, when Gunther comes to your door selling Girl Scout cookies, DON'T get the Thin Mints.

I thought surely by now some one would have posted this video:

Why vets hate McCain

I hope this gives you a better insight to how many people feel and why.

My projection is that, for many people, big events invite them to catalyze a position or belief. Some even appear to search for the contrarian or 'unique' position on the event.

When a person IS the event, then is gets... personal.

Look Im a Trump supporter and he is allowed to not like McCain. They had their own reasons for hating each other.

I have no reason to not like McCain . The guy spent over 5 years as a POW . He deserves respect on that alone.

While I disagreed with him while he was alive , even when he ran for POTUS I would never say he wasnt a hero.

5 years is a hell of a long time .

McCain you have my respect.

RIP sir..


RIP...

For me there has only been two Republican candidates I didn't vote for and McCain was one of them. I respect his POW status, I even helped bury two friends/workers that were prior POWs, no half staff flags for them though.

I never disliked McCain. I think he was a decent man. However, I could not support him when running for president as he favors military intervention. That being said, he is not alone with that sentiment. Apparently, most in Congress do, bought and paid for by the military industrial complex. McCain probably favored war simply due to his family history.

Many here have despised McCain long before Trump came along.

America is a better place without him.


We have always been at war with Eurasia.

This is what happens when someone doesn't adhere to the extreme Right Wing ideology.

They throw any mud they can find against anyone they have to if they do not move lock-step with their agenda/narrative.

It's funny to see them turn on their own, but it's sad to see the lengths at which they will go.

As they say, no shame in the game. It comes from a lack if integrity.

It only seems odd to those who adhere so lockstep to their political party to find those that believe in principle before party.

I didn't say it seemed odd. I said it was funny to see them turn on their own.

Why is reading so damned hard?

Anyway, what makes it funny, not odd, is because of precisely what you just mentioned.

You claim it's about principle, yet have proven many times to lack the integrity it takes to stand on principle. That is why you hold conflicting views and will turn on anyone if they do not fit the narrative/agenda.

It's like an entire ideology that has political ADD. You can't figure out what the # you guys are doing.

No.

You're wrong.


But I know that won't stop you from pushing your own ideological agenda.

Well, that's a very convincing argument. You must have learned about logical debate tactics from the same person that taught you how to read.

My condolences.

What agenda is that?

I spend most of my time simply showing how the Right Wing nuts on this site are absolutely illogical and ridiculous.

If that is my agenda, you guys sure do help push that agenda on your own.
