    Some folks are just low-lifes and enjoy taking cheap shots at people they don't like or with whom they disagree.

    Just fools of history. The accident has been disproved for such a long time and the nuts still don't know how to do the least bit of research. QUESTION, why would the Navy try to hide this case?

    I cannot believe people would be so low on smearing with fake facts. It makes my blood boil.

    I skimmed through a few pages. I saw nothing about it being specially designated as a condolence thread or any warnings.
    Next time delete the post.

    Once there is discovery, then action should have been taken.

    Even if you could not have deleted, you could have posted as such and requested Staff assistance in deletion.

    Best McCain line I've heard to date was attributed to his USNA classmate, Adm Chuck Larson, something to the effect of, it was hard being John McCain's wingman -- and it got even harder after midnight.

    McCain had a wicked sense of humor -- frankly a bit much for most Americans -- but since journos talk "off the record" as much as politicians, I was lucky enough to hear a lot of McCain's zingers over the years.

    Right or wrong, it's looking like McCain was the last link to Barry Goldwater, "The Godfather of American Conservatism."

    I didn't always agree with McCain -- as a matter of fact, in recent years I agreed with him less and less -- but you always knew where he stood, and no matter how hard you tried, no matter how royally he fouled up, you could never hold a grudge against him. He was too affable, too romantic, too funny, too sincere, to ever been the object of a grudge for more than a day. In the end, I always had to like him. And I never stopped respecting him.

    John McCain will be sorely missed.

    Why? All I can think of is-

    1. Give Trump the middle finger.
    2. Be the Darling of the Media one more time.

    In other words - he did something for himself instead of the country.

    That's how I will remember him.
    What part of leaving politics out of this thread do you people NOTunderstand?

    If you have nothing good to say about the man, bite you tongue and do not post in this thread.

    NO POLITICS, NO TRUMP, NO GOP, NO DEM.

    So many of you ignored my previous warning that I would have to ban half of our active memberships, but I chose to delete all those posts THIS ONE LAST TIME.

    This shall be the final warning for all of you to comply. Show some common decency and let a condolence thread REMAIN a condolence thread. ANYTHING else is off-topic and proscribed.

    PS. Public commentary about Staff Action WAS/IS/AND ALWAYS will be proscribed. Don't push your luck.

    Did you think I was joking or merely suggesting?

    Or is reading comprehension a challenge?

    Or is rebellion somehow a root cause for you to defy rules and directives?

    Have a nice vacation.

    I don’t wanna make my thoughts known right now. The historians of later days will have lots to say

    Edit- I just noticed all the red text. I hope I’m within bounds here.
