Another one bites the dust

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

George was a great guy and a fantastic Pres. IMO.

In 1993 I talked to him for almost 3 hours about pretty much anything.
He was at Whidbey Island Naval Station for three days for their airshow and the brought in a restored TBM Avenger, (WW2 carrier fighter),
That's the plane he was shot down in.
He would stand beside it and talk to people and pose for pictures and stuff.
This was a 2 seat version and on press-day, (Friday), Old George hopped in (as the passenger) and I found a suitable photo plane that we could take the door off and took air to air shots all over the sound and even up to Victoria.
This is some of the kind of stuff I dad.
Funny note; His two sons were were going to meet up with him on the Monday after the show to go fishing up north in B.C....

What? Because I consider Powell half decent?

For the record, I considered George HW Bush a decent, honorable and intelligent man.
Extremely conservative, so I disagreed with him on many issues, but intelligent and decent.
More than half decent.

I just didn't think he was the last one.
Last I checked, Powell was still alive.

Powell was weak.

Condi! Now I could get behind that. LOL

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Did OK in desert storm.

In the dubya administration he was getting double teamed by Rumsfeld and Cheney, who kept sabotaging his work.

But, anyway, we weren't talking about strength.
We were talking about decency.

You’re right, I kept looking at it thinking there was something wrong with it...

Then it hit me, subject verb agreement.

Republicans and decency are a short conversation. 😎
