Hope he repented before the Grim Reaper reaped his harvest of McCain’s soul.

Apparently, the quickly-yanked post was from someone called “bigbob”….
Respectfully, you have zero class for posting this. I’m no fan of McCain, but these posts are classless.

I did a big fart at the same time t was announced,

Poetic AND classy!
You should always say good things about the dead.

I’m sensing a trend here….
I want to see the dead body before I believe it. And have it DNA tested by multiple unrelated, independent third parties.
Not letting this one escape the long arm of justice based on the say-so of his confidants. Let’s see the corpse.

Finally admitted it huh?
I guess the corpse was stinking up the place too much to continue to play “Weekend at Bernies”.

Much more Freeper humanity to come, so click on the classy link.
Of course, there’s always gotta be a party pooper :
I’m sorry to hear of his passing. I believe there are things bigger than politics, and I wished that he would make a full recovery not only for his sake but for the sake of his family who loved him very much. That wasn’t meant to be, and I think we can all agree that cancer is a monster that I hope is slayed. It takes too many people and animals as well. May he RIP.
I’d add to those commenting remember how we would react if someone we really were big fans of here on FR died and the liberals left nasty comments. We must be bigger than that. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t write you have nothing nice to say, just say nothing.

That ship has sailed…
If you can’t say anything nice about someone then don’t say anthing. Therefore I have no comment on McCain’s passing.

If you can’t say anything good about a person, say nothing at all.

If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.I am refraining from public comment.

Ok – enough “if you can’t say anything nice” stuff. Let’s get back to the “classy”.
BURN IN HELL

Headroom Americana !
He now begins his never ending term in hell.
John McCain, a traitor to his wife, a traitor to his party, a traitor to the uniform, a traitor to his constituents, a traitor to our country, (not sure if it ever was his country).
John McCain earned and deserved NO respect while alive, I refuse to give him any in death.

One Freeper is swimming against the tide :
In the fall of 2014, I stood at Willow Beach Fish Hatchery in my Arizona County, enraged that US Fish and Wildlife refused to listen to us when we told them that ending their 50 year fish stocking program was going to have a devastating economic and environmental impact on Bullhead City and Mohave County.
Out of sheer and utter frustration, I turned to Senator John McCain who was touring the facility with us (I am the Mohave County Supervisor representing Bullhead City) and I said, “Senator, I am at my wits’ end. If you can’t help us, I don’t think anybody can.” He put his arm around me and said, “Hildy dear, I am not sure what I can do, but I promise you I will do my best.”
His best resulted in a cost sharing deal between US Fish and Wildlife and AZ Game and Fish to build a new pump and a contract to keep the program going – pretty much saving the fishing industry in my district and stopping an infestation of something called the “Caddis Fly.”
I have many profound political differences with Senator John McCain, but on that day, standing at Willow Beach, he made a promise to me and he kept it. For that, I will be eternally grateful.
Prayers up to Senator McCain’s family tonight.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled classy.

I wonder how much longer it’ll be before Freepers start dropping the acronyms and just start typing “Fuck” and “Shit” and so forth.
I remember a time, not so long ago, when even hinting at language like that would get you a lifetime ban from Free Republic.
Not any more.
I’m disgusted by all the celebrating.
You’re new here, aren’t ya?
I was no fan of McCain, but I I’m not jumping up and down because he’s dead. RIP McCain. I hope he accepted Christ as his savior before he passed away.

And, in the “late to the party” category:
My mother always told us, “if you can’t say something good, don’t say anything at all.” So I’m not saying anything at all.

Don’t worry, the rest of us will pick up the slack.

Mods, I don’t envy your job, but maybe going through this thread and taking away those bad posts that make FR look like a bunch of people celebrating the death of the man.
The mods removed exactly ONE post in all of the threads on this subject.
Thought ya might like to know…
And speaking of that one post – I’ve been wondering what bigbob said that was more offensive than the Freeper shit posts you’ve seen so far. Nobody was quoting him in the two or three posts that took him to task.
This is not a very nice post but since you brought it up I will provide some friendly advice.
It is illegal to publicly urinate in most cemeteries.
It is however, almost certainly legal to bring your urine in a bottle.

Need to stop now – the blowers are overloading from sucking up all the classy.
See you good people next Monday.
