American Hero -- John McCain -- is refusing treatments for his aggressive brain cancer

Tagged:  

For those who are too young to remember, John McCain is much more than a U.S. Senator who ran unsuccessfully for POTUS in 2008. He is also much more than "just another soldier" who served in the Vietnam War.
John McCain was a pilot during the Vietnam War, and his plane went down. He and his crew were captured. While he was held as a prisoner, John McCain was tortured. After a while in captivity, it came to the attention of his captors, that McCain's father was a high-ranking officer in the United States. John McCain was offered his release as a good will gesture by the Communist Vietnamese toward the government and military of the United States. John McCain asked one simple question of his captors, "Would they also release his crew?" They said, "No!" John McCain refused to be released without the rest of his crew. That's the true measure of mature masculinity to me!
Great respect has been shown toward John McCain by leading Democrats. Our current POTUS -- who claims to be a Republican in his current incarnation -- has said terrible things about John McCain. His example in this regard proves my point that no leading Democrat has denigrated Republicans to the degree that Fat Donny has. Among his attacks on John McCain, Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, stated that, in his view, John McCain did nothing truly heroic. As Potuzzi said, "He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."
I'm sure there are psychologists and/or psychiatrists who can give a professional opinion, but, strictly as an amateur, IMHO, Fat Donny hates John McCain so much because McCain is everything Lyin Don is not. John McCain is a loyal Republican and a true American patriot. John McCain volunteered for the combat duty that put him in harm's way in the Vietnam War. The Michelin Man avoided even serving in Vietnam because of "bone spurs." Potuzzi talks as though he is a hero, but he has NEVER done ANYTHING heroic! John McCain is a true hero because he kept himself in peril of torture and death in order to be loyal to his crew. Potuzzi throws everyone around him under the proverbial bus to protect himself.
In short I say, "Thank you, John McCain!" You epitomize the best of America! Your legacy should live on and on in the annuls of American history!

has lost a great hero. Let's pray for his soul and for his family and friends. Let's hope that his legacy of putting others first and placing nation ahead of personal gain are embraced by more and more people!

Didn't Trump refuse treatment for his bone spurs? He must have. To get five deferments from the draft means he never got his problem fixed.

Hope I didn't offend anyone!

Nevertheless, Fat Donny, in his 70s, seems to get around quite well. Hmmm...
The Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, is less than a year older than I, you know. I was deferred from military service because of my allergy-related asthma. My asthma has worsened over time. I am now on 3 daily medications, and I now have a nebulizer to use for times when I get a respiratory infection that further inhibits my breathing. Hmmm...
