This Isn’t About . . . Let’s All Pile Onto McCain.
Thank You One & All for Your Comments & Private Emails concerning my Last Editorial, where I wrote about the Difference between a WAR HERO like my Dad, and so many other Fine Men & Women who Served their Respective Countries Without Seeking Fame & Fortune as a Result . . . & John McCain, who after Returning home from Combat & Imprisonment, McCain Capitalized on his War Record, his Name & Family Contacts.
I NEVER MEANT to Intimate that John McCain didn’t do his Duty, nor was he NOT TORTURED at the Hanoi Hilton, since he was Only One of Many Brave Souls who went through the Same Wringer . . . but Unlike others, McCain came out the other side . . . Far Better-Off than Most.
What I do Criticize, is that John McCain entered Politics Riding on his War Record, which is fine, but then used that War Record to Paint a Narrative About Himself as being A Superman, giving himself a License to be Morally SUPERIOR to Everyone Else.
A SMUG CHARACTER IS NOTHING TO BE PROUD OF:
I didn’t Write what I did about my Father’s War Record to Enhance the Life of my Dad (But I’M Happy I Did). But Rather, I wrote about my Dad to Separate Reality from Perception.
John McCain . . . like so many Politicians, is a Self-Serving, Pompous, Arrogant Narcissist, whose Exceptional Ability is to Con the People into Believing he is Somehow Special, AND DESERVING OF THEIR UNQUESTIONING TRUST & SUPPORT.
THE TRUTH IS . . . Like Most Politicians, John McCain is all about John McCain, just like all other Politicians are Mostly all about Themselves. And It Bothers Me To No End, how these Members of the House & Senate, so Easily get away with their Lies, Deceit and Incompetence . . . John McCain Being No Exception.
BUT WHAT BOTHERS ME MORE THAN THAT . . . Is That John McCain, Right to the Bitter End, is using his Elected Position, NOT for the Betterment of the American People, Including his Arizona Constituents, but for his Own Mean-Spirited Ego, by Attempting to DENY PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NOMINEE, GINA HASPEL, to the Position as the HEAD OF THE CIA.
A Year Ago (July 2018) . . . McCain Left His Sick-Bed to Appear Before the Senate, in the Wee Hours of the Morning to Grandstand as the Single Vote, with his Infamous Thumbs Down, to Derail the Republican’s Skinny-Bill to Repeal Obamacare.
AND NOW . . . With Literally One Foot In The Grave – McCain is About To Do It All Over Again, by Voting Against One of The Best CIA Leadership Nominees Ever, only because John McCain is Nothing More & Nothing Less than a Self-Centered Piece of Crap, REGARDLESS of what McCain went through FORTY-FIVE YEARS AGO.
AMERICA & THE VOTERS DESERVE BETTER:
What I’M Writing . . . Is that John McCain – According to all that I can Discern about him, “Earned” his way in Life on the Strength of his Admiral Father & Admiral Grandfather, who was an Arrogant Self-Centered Prick Before his Stint at the Hanoi Hilton, was an Arrogant Self-Centered Prick as a Senator Before he was Cursed with Brain Cancer, and will Die as an Arrogant Self-Centered Prick Right To The Bitter-End.
SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO BE LEARNED FROM MCCAIN:
John McCain is the POSTER-BOY for how the People (Electorate) either Create or Buy-Into the Phony Personas of Politicians They Look-Up-To, which they shouldn’t, which Guarantees Bad Leadership & Worse Decisions.
OUR COUNTRIES ARE NOT IN PARALYZING DEBT BECAUSE OF GOOD POLITIANS:
But More Than Just Paralyzing Debt . . . Because of our Politicians – Our Middle Class Is Now The Working Poor. And our Entitlements are Destroying the Importance of a Merit Based Socio/Economic Democracy, where Freedom should be the Hallmark of Who & What we are.
BUT . . . BECAUSE OF OUR LAZY & IGNORANT POLITICAL DECISIONS – We have Elected Politicians who have Appointed Incompetent Bureaucrats, and have Elevated Sleazy Bottom-Feeding Lawyers to sit in Judgment as Judges over the People they have been Screwing . . . Virtually from the Day they Passed their Law Exams and went to Work to make as Much Money as Legal Sleaze could Generate.
IT CAN’T LAST & IT WON’T LAST FOREVER . . . HISTORY GUARANTEES IT:
I Will Make This Point Real Clear . . . I am all but Certain that we Crossed The Rubicon, The Point Of No Return – by Electing & Re-Electing People Like John McCain, who’s Incompetence is no Less than Virtually all the Others who Feed off the Electorate & Take So Much, while Giving Back So Little.
WHEN JOHN MCCAIN DIES . . . There will be Eulogies Ad-Infinitum. There will be a Funeral Fit for a Conquering Warrior. There will be Memorial Ceremonies & Moments of Silence throughout American Officialdom. Flags will Fly at Half Mast, & Places of Important Heritage will be Renamed in McCain’s Honor . . . AND FOR WHAT?
I REMEMBER WHEN TED KENNEDY DIED . . . Kennedy was a Drunk, Entitled, and a Womanizing Coward, who Deserted a Drowning Young Woman, whom he Left in his Sinking Car after a Drunken Night of Partying . . . This Piece Of Kennedy Crap Was Eulogized . . . As The Lion Of The Senate.
The Politicians For The Most Part Are All The Same . . . But It Is We Who Are The Ones Responsible – & It Is We Who Will Pay The Price.
Planet Earth Isn’t Coming To An End . . . But Our Socio/Political World Is.
And the Best we could Hope for from a Dynamic Political Leader like President Donald Trump, is for President Trump to Lead us out of the LEFTIST Wilderness & Back to a Time when VALUES MEANT SOMETHING . . . And We All Had To Earn What We Got.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
