As soon as GHWB dies, the WORST thing will be all of the nice eulogies about him

Now yes, I do give him his props for being part of the "Greatest Generation", where his got his ass shot down into the Pacific Ocean. That shit takes brass knockers and every single fighting man and fighting woman who did their part in Old Double-yuh Double-yuh Two has earned my respect for what they did.

That includes Pappy.

HOWEVER… The man did spend a significant portion of his life serving the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex AND the Secret Intelligence Police State, BOTH OF WHICH have caused more bloodshed on this planet than any sane person can conceive of.

He was part of the lie that was the Reagan Revolution, which set the stage for America's long term decline over the past thirty years. He hired Lee Atwater to poison this country's political process with racism in order to get elected to his one term. He bungled a minor border conflict between Iraq and Kuwait into a major war, by bastardizing the diplomatic process and setting stage for further American involvement.

I should state, for the record, that his wholly unnecessary and tragically violent invasion of Panama was the single most important incident which radicalized me against the Republicans. He should burn in hell for doing that alone.

But he wasn't done… He also sired a new generation of assholes, one of which matriculated into the White House with outright theft and deceit, fucking us up even further.

So, I'm stating for the record that I will brook NO BULLSHIT about how nice a statesman he was, how he should have had a second term and all that other crap, simply because he's going to be worm food. He was one of the worst people ever to be part of modern American politics.

He should be held up as a lesson about WHAT NOT TO DO, instead of being lionized. But they'll do it anyway, both Democrats and Republicans… AND they should know better.

116. Oh I agree. . . .

A more nauseating, vulgar spectacle has never been seen. Ronnie's corpse flying back & forth cross country at god knows what cost with breathless MSM coverage on all channels.

As for the Bush family, their sense of entitlement knows no constraints at all despite the fact that not one of them is exceptional in any way except as an exceptional IDIOT in GWB's case.

Barbara's uterus should have long ago been declared a weapon of mass destruction for having shot out all those nasty individuals. GWB was born an idiot, but he was also a creature formed by the environment in which he was raised. Coddled & spoiled with his parents bailing him out and making excuses for him his entire life--DISGUSTING.

2. If he dies in the next 3 years

 

it will mark the beginning of the rejuvinalization to wipe out all the bad feelings in the US toward the Bush's

watch for many cover story pictures of W crying
perhaps he will attempt to give a eulogy and not make it 1/2 way through

every step will be choreographed for maximum effect and ratings will soar for the members of the family.

As members of the exclusive club, and by prior events, all the living presidents will be there

and the man who will benefit most from all of this will be 41's favorite son Jeb.

The script is written.

The interesting thing to watch will be the reaction of the tea party draconians.
While they make the Bush's "appear" normal, what will they be thinking and doing?

Better not let them get out of anyone's sight during the 10-14 days of rememberence that will be.

100. W.

m'kay, well .. the "tea party" is not a real thing. So, let's call all of them wing bats. I was astonished to run across a page at facebook named something like "Christians against Obama re-election". What a nightmare! There were a couple of photos of Jr. with Iraq vets. All of them had prosthetics. The members of the page "LOVE" him. There was enough insanity on that page to fuel a rocket ship to a neighboring galaxy. It was basically like watching a horror film (and I don't watch those). The Bush era is what caused my total lack of faith in goodness.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Insensitivity and poor taste (extreme or otherwise) are NOT against the TOS. If someone is responsible for a lot of drama and death and misery in their life, it shouldn't be swept under the carpet just because that someone is nearing their end of days. It's one thing to silence right wing bullshit, another to censor people because they're being both truthful and "insensitive." No HIDE VOTE from me.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Since this deals with all the bs and crap and general throw the world to hellishness that GHWB did and not with his personality or bashing grievers, leave.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: WTF? Discuss it or go fuck yourself and quit using the jury system for your panty bind!
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't blame the author for stating his/her opinions.

122. I think if we are going to have a jury system, people either take it seriously

or they should not participate. Making jury service an open invitation to insult people is not what it was meant for. I can think of at least a half dozen better ways to tell someone they are being ridiculous besides hurling fowl language.

I'm not against fowl language in general and I am sure not one to claim I don't swear.

I have told numerous people to fuck off while on jury duty.
Almost every single one of them wasted my time to ramp up whatever petty squabble they had with another poster. In fact, I got so fucking sick of it, that I chose to opt out of jury duty, at least for a while. 9 out 10 juries I was on were just as stupid as this alert, and people who alert for stupid reasons SHOULD fuck off!

How do you like them apples?

Oh... and for the record... when GHWB dies I will say and type the following:

"My condolences to his family. That's all I'm gonna say about that."

He was one of the worst human beings ever, and deserves no better than that.

Everyone was trying to change history to create a revised persona after he died.

The media, the internet boards I was active on, and every person I came into contact with. I was polite but I went into seclusion until the lunacy dimmed.

I was hoping it would be different here. We would all be realistic and adult about matters.

that helped racists come proudly out of the closet and into politics. We're STILL suffering under the effects of that. kkkarl rove and george junior learned their dirty tricks from lee atwater's knee. atwater was such bad news, and did such awful things that he felt compelled to call Michael Dukakis to his deathbed to apologize for fucking him over - shortly before he died of cancer.

HORRIBLE man. HORRIBLE excuse for a human being. And ghwb brought him into the foregrounds and near sainthood with the GOP. They practically worshipped that bastard.

George HW was not as bad as his son. But he was a heartbeat away from being our president earlier when Reagan was shot. It was always suspicious to me as the hinkleys were bush family friends. And supposedly he was in Dallas the day JFK was shot. I would love to hear his death bed confession. To be a fly on the wall, if only.

... I've always thought that time before dying, when someone is in and out of consciousness/fever state, is the real purgatory - the accounting for one's sins & being visited by the ghosts of those you've wronged.

Considering his time in the CIA, Carlyle, and I'm sure other shit most of us can't even imagine, he ought to stew for a couple months before he's released from this life.

War criminal, mass murderer, villain of the MIC, only person alive that doesn't know where he was when JFK was assassinated and so on.

Because he seems sane compared to the utterly insane Republicans of today does not mean he is a good guy. He's worse than Reagan and Chimpy because he wasn't a puppet, he was a puppet master.

As a certain English bard once said, "The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones." In other words, the damage GHWB did will last far longer than the good.

19. what's with all the bullshit pleasantries? He started TWO WARS

The war in Iraq was planned before 9/11.

GHWB was in bed with the Saudis and was brunching with them and other bin Laden's when the planes hit. He then let them leave the country while all other planes were grounded.

He dreamed of a New World Order and had the Patriot Act penned before 9/11 happened and was just waiting to have it voted on and passed just days after the fact while detractors in Congress and the media were sent Anthrax to silence their dissent.

He was behind a sick Reagan planning Iran Contra, and the hostage takings that lead to Carter's one term.

He ran the CIA and invaded how many small countries and installed "friendly juntas"

He was in Dallas when JFK was shot but claimed he couldn't remember where he was on that day

And many more....

Just because he's old and reminds some of their grand pappy is no reason to not dance when he's shuffled off this mortal coil into the hands of a demon (if only Hell exists)

Yes, he was that bad and even WORSE than what I wrote.

I was working in the Pentagon at the time and saw his war crimes and crimes against humanity UP CLOSE.

Obviously, you don't share my world views, you don't share my experiences either.

He was a bad man… I have no qualms about stating that.

113. My first clue that he was a bad actor was the fact he was the VP of a man

who clearly had alzheimer's, e.g. Ronald Reagan. My second clue was this man was selected as Reagan's VP even though he had been the director of the CIA - not good on so many levels. My third clue was a 60 minutes special in the eighties with an Iranian middleman who was the go between gun supplier for the US and the Iran Contra. My fourth clue - some journalists are also CIA agents. When I watch the news, I find it so strange because most of it is propaganda made to look like facts. We are definitely living in the Matrix.

No way.

Fuck that sorry old man, I wish he had never lived.

BTW, I was involved in the planning of the invasion of Panama. The first strike killed 100,000 innocents in El Chollo, one of the worst slums in the world.

Just to deny Noriega safe haven in a place from which we could never extract him.

GHWB signed off on it, knowing full well the cost in innocent human lives.

Fuck the old vulture.

Given a chance, I would gladly piss on his grave.

"This type of thing is beneath us"?

Go read October Surprise by Barbara Honnegger. Hell, just read the last few pages of what happened to the people involved.

They never found anything on me because I wasn't a threat and was just blowing off steam. I got this from someone who knows some people and they told her that I was being looked at. So word got around in certain circles.

The assholes didn't even try to hide the fact that they were following me around. I guess that they felt that it was enough for me to see them follow me and that would intimidate me.

Still nothing came out of it, but to this day I wonder what was in my file.

You'll realize that something like that is par for the course. This was way before the DHS and Patriot Act, twenty years ago, when none of the agencies cooperated.

To this day, I don't know if the guy who walked up to me, took my picture and followed me around was either Secret Service, FBI or AFOSI. The point obviously was to let me know that I was being watched.

I'm not making any of this shit up. I was working in the Pentagon at the time. Needless to say, word about my mouthiness must have gotten around. It was a threat assessment investigation. However, nothing else came out of it.

When I was awarded a Top Secret/SCI security clearance later on, I figured that whatever they thought they had on me was complete bullshit.

Because I could see all 1000 of them on a clear night from the cardboard box I slept in. GHB had eluded to the idea those points of light would help me somehow. They helped me get denied for food stamps, housing vouchers or other assistance BECAUSE I was a full time college student.

90. Of course the FR types will also 'tap dance' on the grave of Jimmy Carter/Bill Clinton in the same

fashion when their day is drawn near.

Have fun...but I think it diminishes this forum.

You are now on my ignore list. 1 of 1.

93. He is a monster

dead or alive. One of my favorite pages at facebook has posted a "Get Well" card for 'us' to sign. They asked respectfully for us to leave politics out of it. So I did. Nothing to say.

You forgot his 'service' to the CIA. And his Skull and Bones mastery. ETC. The man was trained as a mobster at his daddy's knee.

And without photos of his shoot down, there can always be speculation that it is bogus.

99. Signed in to rec this thread.

When he dies, l hope Poppy and JFK meet on some, extraordinary physical plane - in a grand arena with their deceased peers, standing in judgement, so they can discuss the following unanswered questions:

(1) Each guy's definition of heroism and their crewmember's recollection of events (remember - no lying and no bearijg false witness...MSM take note).

(2) Public Service vs. Private Service. I know all about how Joe Kennedy made millions smuggling reefer and alcohol to a society that did both. A progressive society. Here's a question: How much money did JFK make in public life...how much did George Bush make? Any guesses? Do we know? I know this - JFK wasn't caught in any quid pro quo for direct personal gain....how about George?

(3) 11/23/63. Is it at all interestjng to plot the trajectories of the House of Kennedy to the House of Bush? Where is the intersection? Please include economic analysis of the fortunes of both houses....I'm pretty sure my middle-class fortunes follows with the Kennedys (inrelative terms,of course)Whatta..hey poliscientists....plot all 3 over the past 100 years!

Sorry, won't give a shit when this guy dies. This guy drove significant economic policy that benefited himself directly. Strategic dependence on ME oil. He ran Reagan's energy policy. There was too much money to be made....sorry America....Carter was right.

I think a funeral should be a perfect time when people come together and tell the good and the bad about people. This might make the living think a little more about their actions before they die.

107. I certainly disagreed with him on most of his policies

There were a few I did agree with him on. Compared to his son, his term in office was much less damaging. I missed voting in that election by about 8 months, so I had to wait for the 92' election.

In terms of when he dies, I'm not going to celebrate nor morn.

I can list about half a dozen people who I will celebrate when they die, some of them are going to be pretty obvious.

GW Bush
Dick Cheney
Anthony Scalia
Karl Rove

and that's just the start...

134. I also remember when 41 gave the eulogy at Ford's funeral...I almost choked on my food

 

out of the blue, unprovoked, he started talking about how honorable Ford was in relationship to the Warren Commission looking into the JFK killing.

It was as if he was sending out a coded message and whitewashing again everything.

But then 41 looked like a bum that fateful day in 63 didn't he?
Ironic looking for a man that was kind of stylish in his spy days.(some could say an American Bond almost).
But that one day in 63 he sure did look like a bum, didn't he.(or was I just smoking grassy knolls that day?)

142. Yep, when you go down to the April Glaspie part, that's when it gets REALLY interesting

By the way, that slant drilling equipment that the Kuwaitis used came from Halliburton.

How's that for your post-war BFEE-Secret Government conspiracies?


Edit: You won't read this on Wiki, but GHWB goaded Saddam into staying in Kuwait so he could have his war. This was after Margaret Thatcher chided Bush into going to war after he showed no interest in having one in the first place. After Bush decided that the invasion was a great opportunity to make his bones, give the US increased leverage over the Saudis and Kuwaitis and help the US establish a major presence in the ME that we've never had before, the Gulf War was going to be an inevitability, as Bush saw to it.

Also, look up "the Highway of Death" sometime. That should chill your blood.

If you rate humans on zero to 100 scale, with Hitler getting a zero and "some mythical person" getting a 100, how would you rate him ? I'm sure it's well below 50

He's always been vague about it, but he had driven to Dallas from Houston and was supposed to be on his way back to Houston when JFK was killed.

His entire career was nothing but the pursuit of wealth and power. He could care less about you or I and I could care less about him either. He is/was a despicable character and sired demon spawn.

My marking of his passing will be more muted than the big party we threw when Reagan finally croaked. There were probably 50 people at that party, liquor flowing, party hats and horns and festivity.

The next big celebration will be when some of GWB's crew finally start meeting their maker and shitting their pants because they thought all the hating and killing and stealing was part of God's plan.
