goose Posted June 12, 2022 Share Posted June 12, 2022 On 6/11/2022 at 8:02 AM, Rick N. Backer said: My nephew recently finished treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Center for Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was 13 when he was diagnosed, and he was healthy before that. My paternal grandparents both died of brain cancer, although neither smoked and my grandfather was out of the military about 25 years when he got sick. I asked because parents of children who were killed in action who met Biden were very critical of Biden for bringing up his son's death during their meeting. Their complaint was that he seemed to be doing it to suggest he sympathized with them, as if he too lost a son because of his military service. Biden has a history of adding elements to already tragic circumstances for what some might say are cynical reasons. His first wife and daughter were killed in a tragic automobile accident. They were not killed by someone who "liked to drink his lunch," as Biden said. The officers investigating the accident said there was no evidence the other driver was intoxicated, and the other driver's family has been very critical of Biden for suggesting their father was drunk. To be honest, I inferred that the point of your original post was that Trump's kids are bad people, as compared to Biden's "heroic," children. Which, as I'm quite sure you know, is an odd point to make, particularly with regard to one of Biden's sons. I agree that people who serve the country honorably deserve respect for that sacrifice. And, as I said, Beau Biden's death isn't less tragic if he got cancer for the same reason my grandparents did. Full disclosure, I don't like Joe Biden. Not because I like Trump, I've never voted for Trump. Because he's the kind of person who lies about being admitted to Annapolis so he can be, "one of the gang," (which sort of explains why he might do things like claim his son died in action when speaking to parents whose sons really did). Because he's the kind of person who has a granddaughter he refuses to recognize because he doesn't like her mother. Because having been aware of him since about 1988, I think he's a dishonest blowhard who was repurposed as "good ole Uncle Joe," to defeat Trump, although that is not who he is. Like Trump, Biden's been known as a serial bullshitter for decades. When either speaks, I always question both the accuracy and motives of what they say. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
