    I never say anything in "RIP" threads. After reviewing this one I am reminded why.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    It's not an RIP thread, it's breaking news.

    I can appreciate the Kennedy's for their service and sacrifice. I never liked TK (may he RIP), but the first time I saw him live, I was struck by the history surrounding this man. Royalty and Camelot ... blech.

    Rest in peace, Senator.
    Its not the wealthy they detest as much as high income earners. Have you ever heard a Demo congress person advocate taxing wealth? It's the income they always want to tax.

    If they really wanted to soak the rich and bring in a lot of tax money, they would put a 1% tax on all property over a certain amount.

    That's covered with the estate tax (which is coming back).

    We're getting off topic here guys. This thread is about a boozing hypocrite.

    RIP Ted the man, but not so much the corrupt politician.

    Not really. The estate tax does not affect the super rich. It is very easy to get around if you have enough money.

They have to have all the attention on them, they must derail it into a big argument.

    R.I.P. My heart goes out to the family. The man was a legend within American politics, good or bad. I disagreed with him on just about everything and have a number of issues with him, but ultimately he served his country as best as he felt he could and that's at le ast respectable.
    I disagree with this mainly because many people do not feel he served his country but rather that he served himself first and that for some this isn't bad news.

    I'll probably hang myself with some about this but just because someone was elected to congress doesn't mean they deserve respect.
    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.
