Senator John McCain - Dies at 81

Recommended Posts

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/07/19/5-questions-about-the-brain-cancer-diagnosed-in-sen-john-mccain/

 

Don't know if this is the right place for general news discussion, so I apologize if I'm in the wrong forum. Regardless of your thoughts on the guy, this sucks. I'm a bleeding heart progressive libtard from waaaayyyy back, but I've always held a begrudging respect for the Unkillable McCain. I was glad Barry O beat him back in 08, but in another time, another place, he could've been a decent centrist President. Not looking to start a political flame war at all. Regardless of your opinions, this topic is to comment on this sad news, offer thoughts on McCain, even if you hate him; and find comfort in each other due to the fact that this type of aggressive brain cancer has affected a lot of people, including the young and otherwise healthy, like Beau Biden.

 

If you have a rough experience with that, or any other terminal, nasty disease, share it with us here. Whether yourself, family, or friends. GTAF has helped me through some stuff. Maybe this topic could help someone else. Captain McCain, thank you for your years of service. GTAF, thanks for being dope.

I hope he beats this terrible disease. My grandfather's brother died from a brain tumor that wouldn't go away no matter the amount of surgeries and treatments he had to undergo. The whole time he was struggling with it, he had developed dementia and was slowly going crazy until his death. Any type of cancer is not fun to deal with. Whether you're the one with the disease or you're a family member or a friend of someone who is dealing with it.

If this takes him, he didn't do bad. He's like 80. Hope he beats it, don't like the guy, but I hate cancer.

Fight the good fight Senator.

 

With statistics suggesting 50% of us will have some form of cancer in our lives, within the next 25 years, this is just another sufferer. But so long as we agree that all sufferers are people, that's all that matters.

 

Politics are not important.

You might not agree with his policies (I know I don't always do), but I sure hope he beats this. Nobody deserves to get a disease like this.

Cancer is terrible enough but then it has to be brain cancer too? I feel sorry for anyone who ever had and died of this disease.

You guys in here cheering for the death of an old dude because of his party do realize that despite being a hardline nasty conservative on a lot of important issues, which I'll posit to you as unforgivable, sure, but: His vote against it is one of the reasons that DISGUSTING healthcare Repub Replacement bill died, as it should have. I just gotta ask, calmly, is being edgy really worth sounding like a twat? There's wayyyyyy more Republicans that are gonna be around for far too long, and we should be focused on unifying and fighting that, not going dur hur he dinnit like bamacare hope he dies. And again, the point of this topic is not his politics. It is the disease, and a place for people to share their experience with the disease, the Senator, and not be dicks to each other over politics. It's this kind of thinking that has polarized everything to this toxic point. I mean no disrespect, realize this post was a bit insulting. But please consider what I'm saying to you. Edit: Grammar

Sigh. Literally watching Elizabeth Warren praise him on CNN as I type. You didn't read what I said. I didn't tell you to respect him because he was a Senator. I was asking you to be more respectful of the topic in general, because the discourse has gotten so bad lately. But obviously you surround yourself with that, and it must radiate from your pores in fat, white, greasy drops. Bet you're a lot of fun at parties.

This is where partisanship and politics ends, and basic human decency begins; disagree with the guy's views all you want, but to wish harm upon anyone, no. The man suffered a great deal in his lifetime already, spending over 5 years as a POW - I don't think many people can quite fathom what that entails. Sadly his diagnosis doesn't look good at all, but I hope he beats the odds.

 

I'll leave you with this:

I only see one comment that could be construed as "cheering for the death of [McCain]" (which has since been deleted). The rest is either positive or neutral opinions, which is better than what I expected coming into this thread.

 

It's not all about his party, either. I'm a registered Republican, and I don't like him; He constantly engaged in fights and other misconduct during the Naval Academy and graduated in the bottom 10% of his class (790th out of 795), but got a pass, because his daddy was an Admiral. He crashed several jets and had a hand in the Forrestal incident, which ended with 134 killed and another 161 wounded, but that's okay, because his father was an Admiral. As a P.O.W., he quickly shared heaps of intelligence with his captors and told them his father's an Admiral, receiving special treatment and the nickname "Songbird" as a result while his captured buddies sat in a hole, but that's perfectly fine, because his dad was an Admiral.

 

Despite his sordid past, I wish him the best of luck, from one human being to another. I wouldn't wish brain cancer on anyone.

If anyone thinks the fine people of Arizona are going to elect someone who is any "better" than John McCain, you're delusional. His loss will be profound, and while I don't agree with him on most anything, he has showed class, reasonable thought and compassion in much higher degrees and more frequently than the vast majority of any other elected GOPer.

 

Not to mention, the level of evil that one must commit to "deserve" to die from something like this far outstretches anything McCain has done. He is human, and we should feel empathy and compassion...

I lost my aunt to a brain tumor in May. She was the youngest out of 15 on my mother's side. Also lost an uncle to colon cancer back in 2006, another uncle to some other diseases 2010 or so and another uncle in 2011 (coincidentally shortly after we moved to his state).

 

 

Not fun.

Except he can barely even be considered conservative anymore. He's been shifting further left on most issues and is considered one of the main RINO in Congress now. I live in Arizona and I can say it's absolutely bizarre that he won re-election last year considering everyone here hates him. I blame the snowbirds.

 

But with that said I still wish him the best. I wouldn't wish brain cancer on my worst enemy. That must suck balls.

One thing he has going for him is they were able to catch it before it spread and it sounds like the surgery he had last week removed the tumor in itself but removing the tumor is only 90% of the treatment now he needs to do either chemo or radiation to kill the rest of the tumor that is still inside so it doesn't grow back.

 

Being 80 years old Chemo won't be kind to his body with old age comes a slightly compermised immune system making him more supcepable to infection and growth of the existing tumor but he has access to the best doctors and treatment in the world and like i said they were able to remove the main part of the tumor which is 90% of what is needed and the rest of his treatment will be to kill the rest of the cancer.

 

If he can survive being shot down and tortured by the NVA then he can survive this.

Being a left side, card carrying Democrat I was never his biggest fan until I saw the movie Game Change.

 

I can't stand Sarah Palin and was totally late in seeing the movie but damn...I gained much respect for him after that movie.

 

Extra respect was earned after Trump landed in office and McCain was one of the Republicans who would call him out or not just follow along the Trump way.

 

 

Noone wants brain cancer, or any cancer for that matter.

 

Do what ya gotta do, John.

Thank you to everyone in here who has shared a personal story so far. I'm so sorry you've had to deal with such adversity. I love the way forums like this offer a chance to get that out into the fray and dust away the shadows of our mind.
