    I’ll say it. Good riddance to Bush and, hopefully, his legacy. He was the swamp. He was an NWO globalist. He voted for Hillary. A shady family from before his time, right through the present.

    In this century it is not enough "to serve your country". Last century was full of a very capable people who dedicated their lives to their countries. They were flying military planes, risking their lives and dedicating their time to a government, but do we have to honor their legacy when they have started a decline of the nation? Absolutely not!

    The last honorable republican. Agree or not with his policies, he dedicated his life to this country and I can respect that.

    RIP Mr. President.

    "The last honorable republican" = "Hi, my name is blindfire, and my blind allegiance to my political team makes me unfairly judge and irrationally hate everybody from the opposition team, which in turn makes me a part of the problem."

    Lots of shitbags dedicate their lives to their country and end up making things a whole lot worse. If you're going to respect the man respect him based on what exactly he was working for, not who his employer was.

    The implied, nose in air, MSM sniveling is all about "oh, but look how reasonable and calm he was compared to Trump, blah blah, quack quack" If, say, he died
    while Obama was still in office, they wouldn't be falling all over themselves to fawn over an ex president to this degree, he'd be like a 1-2 day sidebar at best.

    All I would say is “ 18 and I can hit it at Yale,,,,drop me off at the recruiter,,,,”
    You gotta give him some credit,,,the political machine has a tendency to mold you in a way that you didn’t think possible

    Way more significant than that.

    On June 4th, 1942, all 15 torpedo bombers of Squadron 8 were shot down during the Battle of Midway, demonstrably the most dangerous role in the military.. The squadron, because they had to fly at low level straight for the carriers, drew the fighter cover down to them, allowing the dive bombers to attack almost unimpeded and sink 4 carriers, changing the course of the war six months after it started and in the face of many strategic and tactical losses.

    There was one survivor of 45 men, who spent 30 hours in a life raft. Newspapers had reports of the battle on June 7th.

    On June 12th, 1942, Bush enlisted to be a Torpedo Bomber Pilot. Because the nation needed them. He flew 58 combat missions. Like many others, he didn’t know we were going to win, or even that he would survive. He stepped up when he probably could have avoided danger altogether, like JFK’s Naval Intelligence job in DC.

    There are many, many decisions he made as a politician that I personally didn’t agree with. But he stepped up and did his best, from that day in 1942 until 1993, in service to the nation.

    Anyone that does not respect that must not respect anyone.

    I respect that he stepped up to be a torpedo pilot. That was one of the shittiest jobs. That was in WWII. The rest, and especially his late career ... not so much. He made lots of conscious decisions, in his wiser years, to serve himself and his family over his countrymen and his country. That's unforgivable.

    US Postal Service to suspend delivery Wednesday in President Bush's honor

    The United States Postal Service (USPS) is halting its regular mail deliveries on Wednesday in honor of former President George H.W. Bush.

    The suspension is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 5, which President Trump proclaimed as a national day of mourning to remember the 41st president, who died on Friday at the age of 94.

    USPS in a statement said that "out of respect" for Bush, and to "honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime," regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity will be suspended for the day.

    "We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season," officials said.

    Suspending operations in remembrance of the elder Bush won't be the first time mail officials have halted deliveries to honor a president.

    The agency has closed or suspended operations at least seven times to mourn presidents, including John F. Kennedy in November 1963, Dwight D. Eisenhower in March 1969, Harry S. Truman in December 1972, Lyndon B. Johnson in January 1973, Richard Nixon in April 1994, Ronald Reagan in June 2004 and Gerald Ford in 2007.

    That’s bullshit. Out of respect for a dead politician we’re giving ourselves the day off. Can’t wait to see how this country prostrates itself for Clinton and Obama.

    Well that's mighty nice of them to give themselves a Taxpayer funded day off to "Honor" a RINO when over 80% of public employees are blue lever pullers. I believe that this year the taxpayers will bail out the USPS to the tune of 20 Billion Dollars.

    Help Save the US Postal Service

    Well, after 20 Billion what's a few Million more.

    HW will be judged by God, or maybe not... here’s what he has to explain to Saint Peter first: Why he was a New World Order Uber Globalist hell bent on the UN dominating the world, why He was part of a Satanic cult at Yale, why he served the international bankers and military industrial complex, why he lied and raised taxes, why he banned import firearms, why he smiled and even brought up Kennedy’s assasination at a former Presidents funeral eulogy, and the list goes on. I can hear St. Peter now “READ MY LIPS, NO ENTRY FOR U!!!!

    Yeah, because if someone can’t overlook the lasting harm he did to this country as a politician and boss-level swamp creature and just focus on his heroic wartime actions from 75 years ago who could they possibly respect?

    Sounds pretty stupid, right?

    I objected to his idea of turning this thread to CNN like memorial filled with fake emotions. House of Bush was not good in my book. I voted for all of them just as I have voted for Crying Baker. There were no other options back then and they all knew it! I did not vote for Bush because he was a pilot. I wanted a president! He has promised to become one, but he has failed. Done! I am glad we have a completely different president now.

    One famous fighter pilot ace who was flying dangerous missions under Manfred von Richthofen turned out to be an absolute disaster for his own nation. Read my lips: Not impressed! I am tired of this nation weeping over Kennedy on the boat and Bush in the plane. In the war most of the men do their absolute best because otherwise they will die. That is the fact. We got used to "making choices" and "making tough decisions". In the war, or in any military conflict, you better fight and kill as many as you can, so you are the one who will hopefully survive and get to go home one day. In the war decisions are not made by you! Wars are created by politicians! They make decisions for us! And this is why we have lost in Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria......We had no good politicians!

    Our guys died on silly missions which had no impact whatsoever. Our Republican party became weak, our CIA became a joke loaded with KGB agents, ....... House of Bush was arrogant and not smart.

    One of my OCS Classmates Glenn Bangs (who was in the 1st Battalion Rangers when they reactivated, and the Golden Knights parachute team) and his jump mates have been posting pictures of their jump with him. Pretty cool thing to do. Can’t imagine Clinton, Obama or Trump exiting an aircraft while in flight.

    I think a lot of us respect that kind of service, but that doesn't give someone blanket immunity from bad conduct outside the
    service. McCain has the same kind of pall over his legacy. Probably worse, actually.

    By the time Bush checked out in the TBM, carrier tactics had evolved already. The kind of runs that obliterated two torpedo squadrons at Midway did not continue; in a battle where torpedoes sank zero ships and dive-bombers sank four, the Navy wasn’t going to miss the writing on that wall.

    The Navy used Avengers as level-flight bombers and photorecon birds for the rest of the war, and Bush did both.

    If low energy jeb! We’re on the ball, he would cash in on the media lovefest.

    Hillary would ride this all the way in to the Oval Office if Bill croaked.
