    He’s going to be slow roasting in hell, as will Cheney, George Jr. and I’ll be there to witness it, if I don’t learn to forgive. Wars for profit, prisons for profit, and children/parents of Original Native people tortured, imprisoned, separated and deported from their own land. Tragic, tragic TRAGIC. But it’s called “patriotiKKK”. The coconuts, Oreos are having a field day!

    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.
    I'd like to have a pulse at 87...this dude is funny, smart, and sentimental at 87. What a dream :-)

      @Theblack JFK. His father was nazi and their name not bush but schriff who supported Hitler even ghwbush. Look into the bush crime family since 1938. He took lethal for his tie to saudi sex trafficking kids and his hirrendous sick behavior. On the other hand, president trump is riding this world of the evil that they engaged in for years against children, which is human rights abuse punishable by death and assets confiscated. You brainwashed people will believe anything the msm outs out gloryfying these demins. Check it out before you speak. Many have not awoken from msm narrative where they tell you what to think,etc instead of dealing with reality. You can check this out for yourself. Its all over the place now. Once you really see what that family was and embraced, you may change your mind. Barbara bushs father was akestaur crowley, the most evil man un the world who called himself the beast. Check that out too.btw. he had jfk killed, we know that now with others like lbj. Check that out also.

    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.
