Sentiment seems to rule in this thread. I can understand that, for immediate family members and close personal friends of the former president, but I think all comments on his career are fair game as long as they remain within the terms and conditions.

It is interesting to note that I had one of my "satire" photo cartoons of George H.W. Bush's legacy (of crime) removed from the thread on the grounds that it was "off topic". I disagree with that, but I accept the mod's verdict as always.

George H.W. Bush played a role in some of America's darkest historic episodes. He was an amalgam of American patriotism, greed and criminal enterprise and likeable in many ways. Lots of crooks are likeable, but the effects they produce in the world are most always appalling, as in the case of "Poppy" Bush.

Evil men should not be mourned - but to those in his family (those that are innocent) they do deserve condolences, for it is not their fault they were born into a family with Bush Snr in it and not their fault that family ties bring with them pain at the passing of those held dear.

Agreed.

My condolences to his family. I'm actually surprised he lasted this long after his wife passed.

And please spare me the "you should at least respect him now in death" garbage. He was directly complicit in the murder of JFK, his father Prescott was a Nazi financier, sympathizer, and collaborator. Not to mention that Gulf War bull# and being head of one of the world's most prolific terrorist organizations, the C.I.A.

Good riddance.


Congratulations, you've now set the precedent for happy memes when any Democrat passes away.

Please spare us your hypocritical "you should at least respect him/her now in death" garbage when that time comes.

I don't waste my energy hating Hitler, Stalin, or anyone else, either. They're dead. I remember their deeds, but that's different than wishing ill on the dead.

All that hate is gonna burn you up inside, and it doesn't make any difference to those you hate who are dead.

Kudo's,

I won't waste any energy other. However, I don't ignore the facts because history will repeat itself if we do.

Union Pacific will participate the presidential funeral procession for George H. W. Bush.

The railroad announced Saturday locomotive 4141 will take the president's body from the Houston area to College Station -- the home of his presidential library on the Texas A&M campus

"I was of the understanding that was something inherent in everyone, after all I have seen it in so many impoverished peoples in the so many countries ive been to........"

yikes...


Well, I guess the 'so few' countries I've been to have left me a cynical, cold-hearted bastard. And, the really sad thing? The fact that all these impoverished countries you've witnessed all this GRACE in are more than likely continuing to be so impoverished due to GHWB's neo-con, imperliast policies that he pushed while in the White House, and at the CIA! (Basically all of Central America got f'd in the b by this "American hero".


Except he was really working to promote Progressive/Communist New World Order not truly an Imperialist. Yet not much difference I suppose. The Cabal from which he reigned want us all to be slaves to them, and to have us spy on each other for the "sins of the day" like calling out Sharia law as barbarism. Just like the book "1984" as we see it is a reality in so many places now.

All is happening now according to the Progressive/Communista's playbook. Freedom for all is not true under that system. Hard enough as it is now in a capitalist system but without a chance of having freedom for all we get leaders like China.

Agreed. The sins of the Father should not be laid upon the children. They must be their own person and be allowed to do so if they harm no one just like the rest of us peon's.

The late GHW Bush. He was the first president I was old enough to vote for, and I worked the polls for him in my old hometown, and voted for him at age 18.

He was also the first president I ever regretted voting for.

I guess that's the way goes....

If you would have ended this post with “ that’s life” instead of “that’s the way it goes”... it would have been perfect for this December’s short story contest.

You should consider submitting it.👍🏼

WTF ATS?!

Since when do we mourn and defend these evil people?!

Good God people...is ATS truly not even a shadow of its former self anymore? How could ANY supposed enlightened individual possibly have anything good to say about this man or say that he was decent?

You would be so embarrassed if it were let out how you were overheard last week saying you don't think Jeffrey Dhamer was all that bad, that you actually were fond of Ted Bundy or that the Countess Bathory was pleasant and a step high above President Trump.

I damn sure hope you'd feel foolish at least.

Why? Because these men were psychopaths and violent serial killers.

What is so strange though is that you just let Bush off the hook when he is the same and to an extent that makes these folk look like little amateur weaklings. Bush Sr, who gave the bird to international rules of engagement and had 100 thousand men slaughtered who were waving white flags surrendering to the US army. Who watched as 12000 men were buried alive on the Kuwaiti Iraqi border. Who was named by three Panamanians, one i believe was even a nun, as the man who emerged from one of two limousines (the other being Mitt Romney's car) and along with ol' Mitt, walked into a building...a church or abbey I believe, and put bullets in the heads of seven men who had been dealing on the wrong coc aine turf or had stolen coc aine from the high ups. I mean...just like his son who I am so sick of the eye rolls when you claim he was somehow involved in a certain infamous date we all know and who lied to us all so that Americans would feel justified in allowing our young men and women to go die terrifying deaths as they wrongfully put to death 1.7 million more Iraqis and that's just a few of the obvious ones for both.

They did not follow the rules and they had body counts that would make them both two of the most prolific murderers in history by several tens of thousands of times.

These were evil men driven by power and their somewhat out in the open theist luciferian religion and brotherhoods. They were repulsed by the average homosapiens (imho though I could simply say by homosapiens but that's a totally different topic...) and you don't have to make nice about him to be a good person!

What I have been wondering.

I bet when the likes of Kim jung un or Assad peg it there wont be any moral outcry as not caring.

Take your partisan blinders off
Its nothing about Republican or democrats.


Evil is evil and it takes the form of left and right.

I would laugh just as hard if Hillary died.

Day 2 and Bush is still dead.

Love him or hate him, it's getting tiresome.


Yes. He was a president.

No. He was not a god.


The news is still full of his death. He was old. Old people die.

Man the hate from the left has no limits, really tells us all something about those that are slamming
Bush Sr.

You all know he was against his son taking out Sadam and the reason he didn’t he knew how messed up it would get if he did. He also went bipartisan with a growing debt that cost him his second 4 years because even though he said no new taxes he had to do what was best of the country and he knew it would cost him, but he did the right thing.

I’m going to rename the far left as far gone.. tm

I am not far left. I am not even left.

You have have to be a "leftie" to dislike the Bush dynasty and what it stands for.

I would be just as critical when Hillary finally does the world a favor and dies.
