Once upon a time, my first husband and I decided to drive to California. Somewhere around Flagstaff, he had the great idea that HE KNEW a shortcut..
While, being the only sane person in the car with a sense of direction, I objected, but he insisted, as he pulled out some map some guy had given him at work..and we ended up hours later, lost…somewhere in the vast desert of Arizona…only about 900 miles out of our way, and 100 miles from any known gas station. It seemed a very lonely place that desert. I can’t imagine walking across it at night.
But millions do. And John McCain was at a town hall meeting recently in Arizona, talking about immigration:
One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.
McCain urged compassion. “We are a Judeo-Christian nation,” he said.
When McCain was running for President, the only thing we were told was that he had spent years in Vietnam as a prisoner of war, and came back and divorced his wife, and his campaign was saved by Sarah Palin. That’s all I know about John McCain, besides his Rhinoness.
BUT..I’m cleaning out old magazines this week, and low and behold, I found gold: According to the GLOBE (I know…I love it) John McCain and his wife were doing a really nice Jesse Jackson Jr. scam.
Once upon a time, Cindy McCain, who was already heir to $100 million dollar fortune which included a Anheuser -Busch beer distribution, decided to go into charity, (As all rich people do) and so she founded the American Voluntary Medical Team , a non-profit organization that would send doctors and nurses all over the third world . But Cindy was evidently stealing drugs like Vicondin and Percocer without anyone knowing it, and not small amounts either. John made it so Cindy could sail through customs without being checked. They caught her at it, and shut down her charity. John got her a good attorney and that was the end of that. We might remember that Rush Limbaugh was addicted to the same pain pills. Cindy went into drug rehab.
Too bad. Also…according to the article:
While none of this seems important today, Nobody Wonders: Here you had a drug addict, and a man who really had been involved in the Savings and Loan Scandals of the sixties, so Nobody Wonders why in the world did we not hear about all this stuff from Obama’s boys during the elections?
Compare John’s background to Mitt Romney–…Not one word was said about McCain.
And NOBODY Wonders…why?
