         McCain Won't Honor Vets with A New GI Bill.
                   Shades of Herbert Hoover

McCain, like Bush, is against a generous
                 GI Bill for servicemen and women serving in
                 Iraq and Afghanistan.  They say it will cause
                 too many in the military to leave it and go and
                 get their degrees, rather than re-enlist.  The
                 military, they say, cannot afford to be so

                  What shameless tripe!  McCain wants ample cannon fodder
       for the quicksand of Iraq and who knows what other stupid ground
       war he may want to start.  Don't they read their history books?
       The new GI Bill that they oppose would be like the one enacted
       for veterans of World War II.  That proved to be one of the best
       and wisest investments in the country's human potential ever.

                   The cost over 10 years is estimated to be $52 billion.
       This is 1/60th of the cost of the war Bush has forced on the nation.
       It is the least the nation could do after putting these men and
       women in harm's way for a cause so dubious and dangerous.

                   McCain and Bush either don't care how hard times are now
       for military families, or they just don't care.    Bush's Iraq war
       has caused so much suffering and hardship.  From forced extensions
       of duty to record rates of suicide and head injuries. the Bush-McCain
       Iraq war strains the lives of families all across America.   The least
       these mean spirited killers for no cause but greed and pride
       could do is to amply repay the trust shown by American soldiers
       in their mis-leaders selfish, greedy  unjust war.

                     War Hero? Or just Another spoiled, isolated jerk?  He
      commanded a squadron in the Navy, but in peace-time.   How does
      crashing 3 Navy planes before he went ti Vietnam and then getting
      shot down in one make him qualified ot be President?   Such were
      the questions of General Wesley Clark on June 29th.

                   McCain claims to be a "war hero."  How heroic is it to drop
        10,000 pound bombs from 40,000' on civilians?   That is exactly
        what he did in Viet Nam, another stupid war about which Americans
        were lied to.  Read the Pentagon Papers before you complain
        about my language.  I have read every page of the edition
        put out by the New York Times, which Nixon tried to suppress.
        It's my belief that if Bush had been a foot soldier in
        Viet Nam or read the Pentagon Papers, instead of driving
        around drunk and snorting cocaine, he would have thought
        long and hard about foisting another ground war on trusting
        American troops. 

                   McCain was nearly at the bottom of his Naval Academy
         class.  Another C- President?   "No thank you!"    Just like
         Bush he is ready to bully and fight, rather than talk and
         use diplomacy.   McCain's life has isolated him from everyday-
         people as much as Dubya's.  Except for his years in North Viet Nam,
         all McCain has known is security, from the socialized medicine
         the military offers its officers to the care free existence of
         being married to a heiress worth $100 million.   While, I believe
         Bush is a certifiable sadist, McCain has a very dangerous rage

"I've Earned the Right to Screw the Troops"

McCain and Bush are on the far Right.  The new GI Bill is sponsored
            by Republicans Hagel (R-Nebraska and Warner (Virginia.)  McCain's
            opposition to this new GI Bill disgraces all American vets.  His stubborn
            stinginess shows he is a throw-back. 

                    McCain reminds me of Herbert Hoover.  Hoover had General
            MacArthur forcefully breakup the peaceful demonstration by
            unemployed World War I veterans who came to Washington with
            their families in the midst of the Great Depression to try to get their
            "Adjusted Service benefits" immediately, when needed so badly, 
            rather than have to wait until until 1945, as then scheduled.

                       Shacks, put up by the Bonus Army on the Anacostia flats, in Washington, D.C., were
                       burned by Patton' and MacArthur's troops sent out by Republican Herbert Hoover.
                       (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonus_Army )

                   McCain's Age Is A Big Problem

                     McCain will be 72 in August.  He will be halfway to 73 when he is sworn
                       in on January 20, 2009. That would make him the oldest first-term President ever, 
                       two years older than Ronald Reagan.   He has survived four skin cancers (melanomas),
                       including one in 2000 that was classified as Stage IIa.   Statistically, he risks dementia.
22% of Americans over 70 are affected by mild cognitive impairment, while 13% over 65
                       have Alzheimer's. Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at age 83, but early
                       signs were evident during his first term.  
McCain has never had an Alzheimer's test.
                       But it is significant that he can't remember the number of homes he owns.  Here are the
                       10 signs to watch for if he becomes President.

                                1. Memory loss.  (With politicians, this is normal.) 
2. Difficulty performing familiar tasks.  ( McCain's wife won't let him drive.)
                                3. Problems with language.(He speaks clearly I think.  It's what he says I fault.)
                                4. Disorientation to time and place. (He did speak of the "Czechoslovakia: which is long gone.)
                                5. Poor or decreased judgment. (Self-evident.)
                                6. Problems with abstract thinking. (Let's give McCain a math test.)
                                7. Misplacing things. (Like all his homes>)
                                8. Changes in mood or behavior. (McCain's mood swings are pronounced.  See below.)
                                9. Changes in personality.  (McCain has moved from crook Keating's supporter, to
                                                                          maverick, to Bush defender.
                               10. Loss of initiative.  (He's got energy, alright.  Should he have a drug test?)

        Is McCain Too Rage Prone To Be President?

                      By McCain's own admission, "At the smallest
               provocation, I would go off into a mad frenzy and then
               suddenly crash tot he floor unconscious.  When I got
               angry, I held my breath until I blacked out."  If he
               does not get his way, he gets very angry, either to
               bully his opponent or because he is so sure he is right.

                    Former Senator, Republican Bob Smith of New Hampshire
                has said that McCain's tendency towards rage
                would place this country at risk in international
                affairs, and the world perhaps in danger."
                (Source: http://www.slate.com/id/2190109/?from=rss   )

                     Is McCain a dangerous hawk?  At a rally last fall,
               he sang "BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB-BOMB-BBOMB IRAN"
               to the tune of a Beach Boys' song. 

                     wpeF7.jpg (16030 bytes) 

                    Examples of McCain's severe rage problem:

                     Closed Senate meeting 
t was early 1992, and the occasion was an informal gathering of a select committee investigating
                             lingering issues about Vietnam War prisoners and those missing in action, most notably whether any
                             American servicemen were still being held by the Vietnamese. It is unclear precisely what issue set off
                             McCain that day. But at some point, he mocked Grassley to his face and used a profanity to describe
                             him. Grassley stood and, according to two participants at the meeting, told McCain, "I don't have to
                             take this. I think you should apologize."
                             "McCain refused and stood to face Grassley. "There was some shouting and shoving between
                             them, but no punches," recalls a spectator, who said that Nebraska Democrat Bob Kerrey
                             helped break up the altercation.  Grassley said recently that "it was a very long period of time"
                             before he and McCain spoke to each other again, though he declined, through a spokesman,
                             to discuss the specifics of the incident. "
                             ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/19/AR2008041902224.html?hpid%3Dtopnews&sub=AR   )

                                   Just mention his ties with Savings and Loan convicted swindler, Charles Keating, and you will see
                              McCain's face redden and his fists tighten.  That what "friendly" reporters on the ordinarily
                              very conservative Arizona Republic found out when they asked McCain about his wife's investments
                              with Keatings in a shopping center as well as the McCain's family trips to the Bahamas on
                              Keating's personal jet. 

                                      "The man who was known as "McNasty" in high school has erupted in foul-languaged tirades
                              at political foes and congressional colleagues more-or-less throughout his career..." A new
                              book by Cliff Schecter reports:

                                       Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on
                                       another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain
                                       was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and
                                       consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said,
                                       "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded,
                                        "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse
                                        was that it had been a long day. I
f elected president of the United States,
                                        McCain would have many long days."

                                       On the Senate floor, straight talk like "Only an a-hole would put together a budget like this"
                                        (McCain to Senator Pete Domenici)  

                                       "F you. I know more about this than anyone else in the room" (McCain to Senator
                                        John Cornyn during negotiations over immigration reform.) http://mat...othead.php

                                        Senator Thad Cochran gave these worries wide attention back in January when
                                        he remarked, "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine.
                                        He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."

                                        His former colleague in the Senate, Republican Bob Smith, says McCain is a nuttier:
                                        "I have witnessed incidents where he has used profanity at colleagues and exploded
                                        at colleagues ... He would disagree about something and then explode. It was incidents of
                                        irrational behavior. We've all had incidents where we have gotten angry, but I've never seen
                                        anyone act like that."

                                        Former Congressman John LeBoutillier, another Republican, says this: "I think he is mentally
                                        unstable and not fit to be president."

                                        "Basically everyone on Capitol Hill has been the victim of McCain's sociopathic tirades,
                                         and many have the apology letters from McCain to prove it.  "Nowhere is that sentiment
                                         stronger than in the Senate, where McCain has few friends or supporters. In fact, when
                                         McCain ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2000, only four Republican
                                         senators endorsed him," writes the conservative website NewsMax.

                                         When two Arizona medical doctors met with McCain to discuss a local endangered
                                         squirrel, "He slammed his fists on his desk, scattering papers across the room ....
                                         He jumped up and down, screaming obscenities at us for at least 10 minutes. He shook
                                         his fists as if he was going to slug us."

                                          Says another GOP colleague in the Senate, "I Didn't Want This Guy Anywhere Near
                                          A Trigger."A furious McCain regularly throws F-bombs at his colleagues for no
                                          apparent reason.

                                           In 1995, at the Capitol, McCain had a "scuffle" with 92-year-old Republican
                                           Senator Strom Thurmond. That's right, McCain tried to beat up the one person who
                                           was even older than McCain himself.

                                           "It was election night 1986, and John McCain had just been elected to the U.S. Senate
                                            for the first time. Even so, he was not in a good mood. McCain was yelling at the top
                                            of his lungs and poking the chest of a young Republican volunteer who had set up a
                                            lectern that was too tall for the 5-foot-9 politician to be seen to advantage, according
                                            to a witness to the outburst." http://won...nt-mcnasty  
                                            Quoted from http://action.publicbroadcasting.net/wosu/posts/list/938209.page

                             Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.)
                             said they have seen McCain “explode.”    “He has a huge anger problem,” Boxer said.
                             “And he never hid that. ... I have seen it happen on the Senate floor many, many times. …
                             He has exploded at me a couple times.” Boxer said McCain has always apologized
                             after the dust-ups. Nonetheless, she insinuated that McCain’s temperament makes him
                             unfit for the White House.  “It’s all well and good to apologize,” Boxer added, “but if
                             you are in charge of that black box, I worry about that.”

                                                                     McCain as Bully

                               McCain's use of bullying language is very much like Bush's and Cheney's.
                         Bush called a NY Times writer "a major league ass-hole" and Cheney told
                         Senator Leahy to "fuck himself".  I think we have had enough American bullying
                         and belligerence for a while.  I doubt if McCain's temper will ever be really taken
                        up very fully by the mainstream TV media.  Without the actual words, which are
                        not allowed on TV, the message is weakened, even trivialized.  Yet McCain has,
                        by all accounts, an explosive temper, and as President he will have near dictatorial
                        powers when it comes to matters of war and peace with other countries.  This
                        should scare the stock market.  It certainly scares me.
