Everyone is entitled to their opinion on Senator McCain.

Is he a war hero? Is he not? Was he a could politician? Was he not? Was he tried and true red blooded Republican? Was he not? Was he for party? Was he not? The debate and discussion could go on for days if not weeks and when the good Lord decides to take him. The Media will cover it and discuss it all. I know this. Senator John McCain will not die a bitter man. Senator John McCain has accomplished plenty for my country. Senator MCain shoes will not be filled easily. Senator John McCain is respected by his colleagues and his piers as well past Presidents, Vice Presidents and many in Government work for 30 years! 30 years! Many of us could not walk a day in his shoes. Including myself. Senator John McCain's judgement was sound and he always did what he thought was best for the American people and Government. You may hate the man and that is fine. But you should not disrespect him and demean his services to country. From November 4th 1986 till his last dying breath he will and has served his country faithfully. If you have ever read his memoirs you will know he admits to making mistakes. That is what I love about the guy. I may disagree with some of his politics. However, he is a human being. He was/is a Senator from Arizona that kept things moving. Never wavering until now. He is not a failure. He is not neocon/libcon. He is U.S.Navy officer and a gentleman. His politics reflect that very transparently. He was a major work horse.

“We have made mistakes. We haven’t always used our power wisely. We have abused it sometimes and we’ve been arrogant. But, as often as not, we recognized those wrongs, debated them openly, and tried to do better. And the good we have done for humanity surpasses the damage caused by our errors. We have sought to make the world more stable and secure, not just our own society. We have advanced norms and rules of international relations that have benefited all. We have stood up to tyrants for mistreating their people even when they didn’t threaten us, not always, but often. We don’t steal other people’s wealth. We don’t take their land. We don’t build walls to freedom and opportunity. We tear them down. To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is unpatriotic. American nationalism isn’t the same as in other countries. It isn’t nativist or imperial or xenophobic, or it shouldn’t be. Those attachments belong with other tired dogmas that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history. We live in a land made from ideals, not blood and soil. We are custodians of those ideals at home, and their champion abroad.”

Guys,

This is a Trump textbook move. Just like his restate deals. Get investors all excited. Then pull funding halfway through the project. The sub the rest out a little bit at a time.

He has more foundation on than his wife in the photo.

Glad no missiles are flying over Japan though.

I think he should just cut his hair down to a number 2 clip and flatop his dome. Like the rest of us aging men. Stop using that fake fake McCheeto foundation tanning product from Revlon. Let the receding hairline and baldness free baby! #stopthecomb-over!

@Jimizo,

Some would debate the level of heroism during his military career. However if you read the following. Please come to your own conclusion.

On July 29, 1967, McCain was a lieutenant commander when he was near the epicenter of the USS Forrestal fire. He escaped from his burning jet and was trying to help another pilot escape when a bomb exploded. ]McCain was struck in the legs and chest by fragments. The ensuing fire killed 134 sailors and took 24 hours to control. With the Forrestal out of commission, McCain volunteered for assignment with the USS Oriskany, another aircraft carrier employed in Operation Rolling Thunder. Once there, he would be awarded the Navy Commendation Medal and the Bronze Star Medal for missions flown over North Vietnam. McCain's capture and subsequent imprisonment occurred on October 26, 1967. He was flying his 23rd bombing mission over North Vietnam when his A-4E Skyhawk was shot down by a missile over Hanoi.

 McCain fractured both arms and a leg when he ejected from the aircraft and nearly drowned after he parachuted into Trúc Bạch Lake. Some North Vietnamese pulled him ashore, then others crushed his shoulder with a rifle butt and bayoneted him. McCain was then transported to Hanoi's main Hỏa Lò Prison, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton".

Beginning in August 1968, McCain was subjected to a program of severe torture. He was bound and beaten every two hours; this punishment occurred at the same time that he was suffering from dysentery. Further injuries brought McCain to "the point of suicide," but his preparations were interrupted by guards. Eventually, McCain made an anti-U.S. propaganda "confession". He has always felt that his statement was dishonorable, but as he later wrote, "I had learned what we all learned over there every man has his breaking point. I had reached mine. Many U.S. POWs were tortured and maltreated in order to extract "confessions" and propaganda statements virtually all of them eventually yielded something to their captors. McCain received two to three beatings weekly because of his continued refusal to sign additional statements.

So ask yourself Jimizo. Is he a war hero?

Respect, Honor, Dignity, Dedication, Patriotism, Unity, Service, Morals, This is John McCain.

I have followed this man for thirty years. I can not imagine a world without him in politics. When he is called up. I will have felt I lost a friend. We honor you sir. There are no words that can be spoken. So I will just say simply. Thank you Senator. We were blessed to have had you in our corner. Prayers sent for an easy transition out of the flesh and into the heavens.

Obviously a case of dementia or Alzheimer's. Since the case is being treated as lost property. If the woman claims it then they can request 5 to 20% finders fee. I do not think the Mother and son would do that though.

If with in three months no one claims it then I wonder what will happen? I once found a wallet on the steps of my train station with 110.000 Yen in small bills. It was claimed and the elderly gentleman offered me some cash which I declined.The Mother and son did the right thing here. This is what I love about Japan.

Leaders are always saying "not to repeat the mistakes of the past". When these world leaders take a look around the world and really evaluate the type of weapons we have today. Then through contention are forced in a striving rivalry. How can they say "not to repeat the mistakes from the past"? We are destined to annihilate each other and kill each other off. Since man discovered picking up a stone to use it for violence on his fellow man. Civilization is headed for the last world war rapidly. Words are just words.

I am all for getting out there in space. But for the right reasons.

Mars is dead. The Moon worse. Anything other planet or moon out there is just too cold to survive. And how stupid of name is Space Force? Why couldn't have been something other than Space Force? Seriously? How dumb! All dumb dumb dumb and dumber! I agree with anyone on this moronic branch that is opposed. No matter where you flop yourself on the isle. I am going to stand with you on this one. The next POTUS will kill this off quickly I am sure of it. God let's hope so before we see Space Force soldiers walking around with Space Force uniforms. This is so dumb.

Here is an idea. Focus on the more on the planets out there in the goldilocks zones. That is where your going to find life on another planet. And seriously if we did find life. Do you think they want to come here? To Earth?

They will be thinking. That's the ghetto planet man! Earth is savage! Do not want to go there man.

Live long and prosper!

From the photo everything looks like one big pile of tetanus and a shot awaits. However, they still have value.

You maybe able to get the name of the owner or the maker off the sword. Most likely you have a mix & mashup of many different genre of swords. One's that may have been passed down through generations made by a famous smith. Or one that was standard issue and machine made.

I am curious as what type of rifles were unearthed.

Here is interesting page I check in with every so often.

There are tactics to deal with unruly and dis-satisfied customers. As hard has you train to provide your service or craft at the best of your ability. It should be known equally to train in objection and rebuttals. Some complaints that lead to rudeness can be turned around. Some you just need to let go. Some you need to ask. Okay what the real objective of this persons claim abuse and complaint?

If you are in sales this a great example of training I mean.

@Alfie,

I had already arrived at the venue with Enzo in tow the previous day. The Enzo was transported in our Ferrari Truck.

I can not confirm or deny if some of our clients were involved. However, I can confirm what was and is already known about the pile up. The lead driver was an in-experienced driver who was driving on a very hard Pirelli tires in somewhat wet and cold conditions with TRC off. He got sloppy and careless and as I have commented before in previous posts. I do not recommend taking a Super car above the speed limits on the local roads or highway. The Ferrari brand does not need to driven fast to feel exciting. These following cars are meant to be on the track. La Ferrari, Enzo, F-150 Italia.

You have to believe deep inside there must be a special place in hell and damnation for rapist of our young females around the globe. You know what they do to men of this nature in American prisons right? It is time to for Japan to have the same system like America has. You have to report who you are I think. I am not so sure how it really works but if your a pedophile. People around you in your community and the schools. Are notified a sexual offender is living close by. Like I said not really sure how that works. Maybe someone else here commenting does. I wish I could really express what I would like happen to this scum. I will just say you know what the do to young calves and pigs after being born? Plunk there is one. Plunk there is two. He is very lucky to be going to a nice somewhat safe Japanese prison.
