To the writer of the Saturday Speakout referencing John McCain:
The term "dude" gives your generational/ideological identification away.
John McCain fought for national integrity of defending freedom from Communist incursion and spent six years as a POW under horrendous conditions. That makes him a war hero.
Could you survive six years without government handouts or entitlements?
You say he whines.
I say he cries over this country because of how far it has fallen from glory of passion and compassion and pride, and his and others' efforts to protect and preserve freedom of speech so that someone like you can spout their diatribe of ignorance.
