Today’s bunch of crap..

Here’s one example of McCain’s temper.  Took me 5 milliseconds to find one.

McCain's history of hot temper raises concerns

WASHINGTON — John McCain made a quick stop at the Capitol one day last spring to sit in on Senate negotiations on the big immigration bill, and John Cornyn was not pleased.

Cornyn, a mild-mannered Texas Republican, saw a loophole in the bill that he thought would allow felons to pursue a path to citizenship.

McCain called Cornyn's claim "chicken-s---," according to people familiar with the meeting, and charged that the Texan was looking for an excuse to scuttle the bill. Cornyn grimly told McCain he had a lot of nerve to suddenly show up and inject himself into the sensitive negotiations.

"F--- you," McCain told Cornyn, in front of about 40 witnesses.

It was another instance of the Republican presidential candidate losing his temper, another instance where, as POW-MIA activist Carol Hrdlicka put it, "It's his way or no way."

John McCain is dead. His Golden Values or his Base Corruption matter for nothing anymore. Nothing anyone says in his defense or in accusation will change the fact that he is dead. I see no purpose in demeaning his memory on an almost daily basis. Whatever you might say has little chance of changing anyone's mind about him.

It's up to the Historians now. Please allow his family to get past his loss.

Let it go, Mr. President. You're a better man than that.

You are absolutely right, in terms of forgiveness. But McCain is a historical figure, and being used by political advocates to bolster their ideology with falsehoods. I’d say as much about Joseph Stalin.

Hitler's dead. Let it go?

Voting 'no' to abolish Obamacare
They are enough to damn McCain in history.
Henceforth, Trump should let McCain's record speak for itself.

That family was given a Presidential, even royal farewell by President Trump. Air Force 2, memorial services, and so on not done for others, including senators. Don't kick a dead man? Fine. But the dead man's family is continuing to attack President Trump, without so much as a word of thanks for the royal treatment they got. And every time the media asks President Trump, he answers them. No, I don't think he's gone overboard. And this ain't the half of it. Just look at what's posted, by me and Stu and others, in the other McCain one. And no one has declassified McCain's horrendous record he compiled in the military.

If his fellow Hanoi Hilton mates who “suggested” he was in bed with their captors are to be believed .... . Ahem

Mama said "If you can't say something good about someone, then don't say anything at all."

"John McCain is dead and that's good."

Also, "Teddy the Swimmer is coming up on ten years clean and sober."

Speaking of low-life dead beats, has anyone heard any more about Randall Cunningham ? He was another "war hero" ace fighter pilot that got elected to office in Cali. After a while he was busted on corruption and racketeering charges for bribes and pay-to-play schemes. Is he still in stir wearing state issue ? Inquiring minds want to know ......

Skoonj said...

Isn't Cunningham still in prison?

rickn8or said...

Regnad, looks like he's out and about, although I would have preferred he'd been keel-hauled.

And the worms are into his brain.
Fuck him,the word is better without him.

Skoonj said...

Cunningham is out of prison.

Just because McCain is dead, doesn't mean we have to sheep-dip his "legacy", as it were. That's revisionist history talk, and a pox on all who would so delude those who know no better.

Patrick McManus, from “How I Got This Way”

“Nothing improves character so much as death. I once knew a man, Pete by name, who abused his family unmercifully, stole, robbed, lied, cheated, and was suspected of at least one murder. Pete himself came to a violent end at the hands of an unknown assailant who may have been of the opinion he was performing a public service. Others thought so. Within a day of Pete’s demise, however, somebody recalled a good deed the deceased had once performed, possibly an incident in which he had met a stranger on a lonely road and hadn’t robbed him. Soon, even his victims were concluding that he hadn’t been such a bad sort after all, merely misunderstood. Then someone recalled that the fellow had been a good worker on occasion, and someone else remembered his actually having repaid a debt. By the time of the funeral, the man’s character had improved so much that he had become one of our town’s leading citizens, widely revered for his acts of charity, courage, honesty, and kindness, and if he had a fun-loving tendency to pull the occasional prank, why that was to be forgiven on the grounds that nobody’s perfect.”

McCain was a POS-good effing riddance. For me, his jump the shark moment was that insipid campaign ad with him supposedly walking the border with that ball cap on and saying, build the dang wall.

F*cking lying POS and 100% appropo brain cancer got him. The death and destruction he needlessly warmongered for alone more then got him an eternity of screaming hell.

In response to all the above:

The Presidential tweets accomplish nothing beyond picking at the scab to keep the wound bleeding. The sniping between Donald Trump and Megan McCain is a total waste of energy, and it makes both sides look like spoiled little playground brats.

Open the books. Unseal the records. Declassify the files. Find a dedicated and renowned biographer and write a TRUE and precise history of John McCain III. Everything from his high school yearbook to his Naval Academy years to his UNABRIDGED military record, unfiltered through the eyes of the Admirals. What is the TRUTH about his time as a POW? Interviews need to be done NOW while there are still people around who know the TRUTH and can report it first-hand.

His time in politics is documented, but again, tainted by those who, well, let's just say were willing to turn a blind eye to some of his dealings because they had their own agendas and he was going their way. We need to know the truth about what went on in the back rooms and behind closed doors that caused him to align with Liberals, not so much against the President, but often against the Will of the people.

The time has come when those very people need to know the entire truth about John McCain, all gathered into one complete volume, not just snips and stories from scattered sources. I have no doubt that this will happen; I hope I am still here to read it.

Tap dance away, Mister Apologist.

Murphy(AZ) said...

If you believe I am apologizing in any way for the likes of John McCain, you are grossly misinformed.

Regnad Kcin said...

There are many facts concerning McCain's past available to easy access. He was ranked 894 out of 899 in his Naval Academy standing. In the course of his aviation training he wrecked three airplanes. While being interned as a POW he made several radio propaganda broadcasts in 1969. Seems his adherence to the Military Code of Conduct as a POW was certainly lacking. The photo of him with Pres. Nixon while he was propped up on crutches was not due to his POW injuries. His injury occurred after his release. He was not well liked by his fellow inmates at the HH. He played this song and dance routine all through his political career to all those who would swallow his act. BTW, his "Tokyo Rose" broadcasts are available on you tube. His nickname of "songbird" was well deserved. This man(?)was no hero nor had any valor in my eyes......

McLame sure as hell would've responded to Trump, Joe. In front of the camera's
it would've been a big smile and a "ahhh shucks moment", then he would've
immediately started plotting his revenge.

Think his obamacare vote, when he gave Trump and the American People
the FINGER. That was McLame personified.

Trump didn't have to extend any courtesy to the Family for john's BIG dog
and pony long goodbye. That he planned entirely. It's more than I would've
done for him.

Rot in hell, johnny.

Respectfully, Murphy(AZ), please point me to "one complete volume" that defines "the entire truth" as regards any historical/biographical event/person.
