All of these rights spell security. And after this war is won we must be prepared to move forward, in the implementation of these rights, to new goals of human happiness and well-being.America's own rightful place in the world depends in large part upon how fully these and similar rights have been carried into practice for all our citizens. For unless there is security here at home there cannot be lasting peace in the world. meditate on this is , follow by jfk and jimmy carter and as says george orwell in"Politics and the English Language"Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
Absolutely right. I was going to compose my own reply, but this about nailed it.Mr. Bush's presidency cannot be judged a success - though it was not without its successes. Indeed, even the cause of his electoral defeat - his tax increase - was rooted in Mr. Bush's sense that there are limits to what the public can be promised. That changed circumstances can require a changed approach, and that the public must be summoned to a reckoning with the costs of its appetites.Mr. Bush was the last of the practicing adult presidents. Since then we have been inundated by shallow, predictable and unremarkable figures of colossal vanity whose idea of high politics and deep thinking is to appease the public's equal sense of its own virtue.Mr. Bush's was a career of private and public service. Like any public figure it was a mix of triumph and failure. He lacked the vision of his predecessor, but he compensated with an appropriate sobriety and sense of duty.He will be missed.Great answer.
@nightdrot Thank you - I only wish I could upvote replies.
There are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see!
@FunkyMonkee Sorry? Your reference is obscure, your antecedents unclear.
Very kind. Thank you.
@nightdrot As I said...
@FunkyMonkee Not very helpful. A full exposition of an argument is to be preferred to elliptical references and the taint of self-satisfaction with one's lack of clarity. The beginning of good communication is to elaborate one's own arguments.
@nightdrot His answer below would appear to indicate he's a 9-11 conspiracy theorist, and possibly, with respect to the Bush presidents, has the father and the son confused, so not to be taken especially seriously, I think!
Yes, I just found his answer. He does seem to have confused the two Bush presidencies. Well, as the old saw has it, best advice to him would be, "Physician, heal thyself."Good grief. Suffice to say, I will give his arguments all the weight that they are due.
@nightdrot Not a theorist, the theory says 18 Muslims with box cutters killed 3000 people and destroyed 3 buildings with 2 planes. I only deal with the facts and BOTH Bush's were involved in that "attack"!!
@FunkyMonkee Yes, and I believe Bigfoot was also involved.Good grief. I've worked in government and politics for the better part of 30 years, including extensive work on terrorism and unconventional warfare issues. I can assure you that you are peddling nonsense.
@nightdrot Then, you're an idiot.
@FunkyMonkee It may not have occurred to you that epithets are not a substitute for a reasoned argument nor evidence. Physician, heal thyself.
@nightdrot It may not have occurred to you that repeating everything everybody else says with no research or evidence to back it up is not proof. Go back to school.
@FunkyMonkee You are talking to a man who was on a terrorist hit list at one point - Gulbbadin Hakmatiyar. You may look him up.Trust me, I know whereof I speak - and you would be advised to take your own advice.
@LuvMeSomeBoys There is more than one video on YouTube that discusses the JFK assassination and Bush Sr's involvement. Also, there are documents in the public domain that also support such.
Among other conspiracy theories.
@x_Pretty_x Me either cause I'd definitely offend a lot of Bush fans
WOW! Find a way to use Bush's Death to take a shot at Trump. Really first rate.
@Poormanscomedian Was I supposed to write a eulogy? That wasn't specified in the question. I'm pretty sure Bush Sr. would have had an opinion on Trump even if he didn't go public with it.
Please tell me you’re joking?
Lol maybe she meant in her life time
@That1tallguy I hope so cause if not I’m sad!!! That said, the English aren’t taught English History because it’s “insensitive” to other nations. Sadly, most English (including myself) know hardly any own history! Hopefully not the same for the us... the English have to learn us history!
