    Not sure if this is the correct spot so if not Mods please move it.

    Anyway onto the topic.

    I hope when I turn 85 that I have the drive that Mr. Bush Sr has, I say way to go Mr. Bush Sr and you have Green Light Jumper's Away. Wonder which Team will get the honor this time Black or Gold the last time it was the Gold team.

    Does he really need the parachute, though?

    He's too old for me to even feel good about wishing death on him. It's like wishing a happy birthday to somebody born on February 29th. But this is pretty cool.

    Why wold you even think about wishing him anything but good luck ? It's not his fault that the son of Bush, The Shrub turned out the way he did. I am sure that the real President Bush did all hat he could to do well is raising al his children but just turn out the way they and it's not the fault of the parents.

    He jumps with the military's premier parachutists, the Golden Knights. They are a very impressive group.

    If there is anyone in the world I would want parachuting next to me, it would be a member of the Golden Knights.
