    What? No words from anyone about Georges nifty work done helping assassinate another President, John Kennedy? No mention of him spending more time in his later years with Bill Clinton than his own sons? Of course they did a lot of work together being the Poppy drug kingpins of the globe. Missed by fools, GW Bush, one of the most evil men to ever walk the planed and biggest Child and human trafficker on earth.

    I've always liked Alan Simpson. He's got a great, humorous personality, but it was kinda interesting how he praised GHWB for going back on his word and raising taxes, but seems to criticize the Republicans in congress for "turning their backs on him" over the issue

    We must remember. As eloquent as Simpson's eulogy was he is still a republican. He brought us tears, laughter and entertainment with his comments, but his record in the US Senate brought us divisiveness and hate. He opposed health care for all. Think about that - he denied babies and toddlers of poor American's families health care. He supported Reagan's criminal activity known as Iran/Contra. He opposed food stamps for hungry American families and children. While in the US Senate, he was vicious while promoting his right wing dogma. Yes he can be funny, entertaining and coy or should I say insincere, but in the end he is no friend of the needy. He is simply a garbage oligarch.

    It's a shame that Senators like this have gone the way of the dodo...they use to be statesman who cared about their countrymen. Now they're just political whores, beholden to whoever donates the most to their campaigns.

    Simpsons father hung out with Prescott Bush, former treasurer of Planned Parenthood and the manager of Union Bank that was seized by the US government for trading with the enemy, the NAZI'S, during WWII.
    More than likely, this is the REAL reason that the "left" loved GHW Bush so much.
    No wonder George had to ride the coattails of a populist into office.
    George was almost able to assassinate his way into the presidency when his business partners friend and NON offiCIAl Cover CIA friend, John Hinkley, $%it puppeted his son John Hinkley Sr., into shooting Ronald Reagan shortly after Reagan took office.
    Johns "Hinkley Energy" that Bush was a partner in, was about to get a fine leveled against it by Reagan.
    John Hinkley Sr. was also on the board of directors of an NGO known as World Vision.
    World Vision is a CIA cutout that also employed the man known to the world as Mark David Chapman.
    John Lennons assassin.
    So lets recap.
    1. Trading with the enemy.
    2. Treasurer of an organization that kills babies using techniques developed by Joseph Mengle.
    3. Business partner of the father of Reagans would be assassin.
    4. Business partner of the "boss" of John Lennons assassin, Mark David Chapman.
    5. Only person on planet Earth who doesn't remember where they were when JFK was shot in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. (I won't even GO there. Trump will release those documents in 2021).
    Kevin Bacon is jealous.
    He doesn't know anybody who knows anybody who knows anybody who knows these people.
    Good riddance Bush.
    Rommel would be proud.

      It is now time for Mr. GHW Bush to settle his accounts with The Ancient of Days, YHWY, as we all shall. Yes it is time to let him Sleep The Sleep Of The Dead. It's no longer any concern who this man lived his life upon this earth; he is beyond our realm to punish or elevate. He belongs to YHWH and the judgements and tender mercy of Yahushua. May YHWH and Yahushua have mercy upon his soul.

    One of the honors in my life was to have served as an Economic Adviser to Pres. George H. W. Bush. Many beautiful words have been said during the services honoring him. One of my memories is of the day I met Pres. Bush. His son the junior President Bush had attended a presentation I had done at the University of Wisconson and, and unknown to me, had recommended me to his father. Picture this, there I stood, still in my 30's and looking far younger, face-to-face with the POTUS. His first words were< "son are you fresh out of high school? It'll be good to have some young blood around, and if things blow up we can always blame you, welcome to the people's house". I was instantly put at ease. God has blessed us by his presence and now He's taken him home.

    Alan Simpson, sounds convincing; but, remember, this is the guy who thinks Social Security is a hand-out. which needs to be constrained. Apparently he does not know that the congress he was a member of, through borrowing from SS, have moved SS closer to being insolvent, not as he has stated the benefits to SS recipients who have paid into SS most of their working lives. Friends, Alan Simpson is not the guy he projects. His allegiance has been to donors, not voters.

    • R H

      "not as he has stated the benefits to SS recipients who have paid into SS most of their working lives." The Social Security Program started in 1937. The first benefit check was paid on 1/31/1940. The first person to receive a check was Ida M. Fuller. She paid in a total of $24.75 during the three years of 1937-1939. She received her first MONTHLY check of $22.54 on 1/31/40. So the first generation didn't pay in their entire working lives and the amounts collected have been a hand-out.

      +Nicholas Acres You, Bishop are judgmental and evil. You have made yourself judge over Mr. Trump. Yahushua said, "JUDGE NOT, LEAST YOU BE JUDGED." You will be held to the same standards to which you are judging Mr. Trump, NOT to Yahushua's MERCY. This is YHWH'S TIME He is bringing His prophecy to completion. Not Mr. Trump, not you, not the DNC or anyone else can alter what YHWH has put in motion. Pray for Mr. Trump to have YHWH'S guidance and protection as the legally elected President of this country.

    will not be directly aimed at hamilton
    or at the busy streets of halton
    what then shall be our guarantee from the separatists
    that we shall not be her colonial slave protagonists
    same as she did at vietnam
    and turn canada into a bedlam
    with violent scenes of rock throwing
    by protesters who flock with the left wing
    we give equal status to the french language
    our sincerity and good faith you refuse to gauge
    we give quebec and lucien autonomy
    in french language we study taxonomy
    others think! you are one of those breed of racists
    social and language barriers that make you antagonists
    you are lucky you are not in a communist state
    you are lucky Canada has been in a tolerant state
    for you have been in iraq and not free (under saddam hussein)

    so be satisfied with the status quo and mind

    Back in the day when he was president, he was at the airport in Pittsburgh. My father in law was the deputy chief of the base police. George walked up to my bride and stole our oldest daughter. The secret service had to direct him back to my bride so that she could get our daughter back. In the briefing room George was talking about the cute baby girl that he had been carrying. My father in law said to "thank you" that is my granddaughter :)
