Instead of selling out to whichever corporations would pay him the most , he worked on passing legislation that helped all - - from civil rights, the handicapped, to to schip for kids. There's no telling the countless lives that have been saved or bettered by this man, who yes, was far from perfect.

    I of course realize the rabid right have and will always hate anything Kennedy, but I had a sliver of hope that more than a few would wait one day before flinging their vile feces, but once again I misunderestimated the foul vulgarity of the classless cons.




    "My brother need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life; to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us, and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world. As he said many times, in many parts of this nation, to those he touched and who sought to touch him: 'Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not.'"
    -- June 1968, eulogizing his brother, Robert
    Bloated romanticizing for a politician and nothing more.

    His job was to get re-elected and he would do anything that would make that happen, he's like every other politician out there.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No serious individual would ever utter such deplorable opinions.

    Clearly, some of you do not want to be taken seriously.

    Wish granted.



    Oh noez da canadian does not take me seriously because the Good Reverend laughed at the notion that we should care what our public servants think of us as if they are royalty... .

    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Wrong again.

    The point is, it is classless.

    I find it ironic some of the more vocal elements on this site passionately argue for their arguments to be taken seriously in other threads.

    Yet in another corner of the site, they dance on someone's grave and wonder why no one takes them seriously.

    They are not taken seriously because they are not serious individuals.

    I'm not going to debate you.

    However, in order to defend myself I will state that I mourn for every single soldier that has EVER died under the US flag. That's why I don't want them to die anymore...

    I do mourn the passing of a man who dedicated his entire life to public service just as much.
    and so it goes...

    Are you of the opinion that your lectures on civility are being taken seriously here? You aren't even from our country, dude. Seriously, why don't you spend your time worrying about the fact that your country could be conquered by a couple of troops of American girl scouts, versus spending your time on internet forums lecturing people on death manners.

    I think it is a bit double minded also to argue against "death panels" and this so called "veteran's death book" and then say death doesn't matter. Why is it that death is so serious and meaningful for one segment of the population and not for another that one disagrees with? I find the death panel and veteran death book argument to ignore the facts and the pointed disrespect for Kennedy's death to show a highly political bend to the argument rather than looking at facts and people.

    Sad panda, so sad panda.
    And that is why you have no contacts, no access and no knowledge.

    You are kept away from power because you are an ego-driven individual who at every opportunity tries to pimp his emotional agenda.
