    Isn't is interesting how the Fake News Media, that same media that said such awful things about Bush 41 during his Presidency and all these years after when he became one of their most hated Presidents in history, are now remaining silent as they report daily stories of tributes to the deceased Bush as he goes through the formal process of being laid to rest. Stories such as those showing President Bush 41 reaching across the aisles to foster cooperation among the opposition and others that have never been made public before that place Bush in such a positive light. The way and timing of presenting those stories are SO Fake. These are the people that dressed in black the day after Bush was declared the winner of the 2000 Presidential Race.

    Why do you care were I live? At least it isn't in dirt street and junk yards Rockvale CO. South of R&R street isn't a new car lot.

    Many have been vets but in name only. Ford, Nixon, Bush II, Ronnie, Carter but none even made it to a combat zone. IMO their service in the content of your post didn't mean ****. When they have heard the noise and screams and see the mangled body's then and only then does their service worth taken in to consideration.

    How many other World leaders have served their country's in the military? Not many

    No reason whatsoever to do that. There is plenty of room aboard AF1 to carry a casket.

These attributes are glaringly deficient in today's society.

    Even more so today.

    This may be commonly known, but I will share it anyway.
    The book “Flyboys” recounts the fates of a number of US pilots shot down near Iwo Jima and how some were captured and eaten by the Japanese garrison.
    One of the pilots who was shot down off the island was saved by a US submarine as the Japanese were coming out to fish him from the water.
    That pilot was GHW Bush.
    Had the sub not arrived in time, Bush would have likely have been executed and possibly eaten.

    'They’re taking all of the seats out,' President Trump told reporters as they returned from Argentina on Saturday. Bush will be honored with an elaborate week-long state funeral.
