Our mutual friend passed on 16 Nov 12 I do believe. That was only 2 - 3 weeks after he found out his cancer was back. So he went quickly and from talking with his relatives painlessly.
Money is a problem in our election process. We need to fix it.
NO!! OH NO!! I didn't know. You okay?

Actually there are two nearly identical "Air Force One" planes.
Biden flies on "Air Force Two".
This article has some good info and history.

Next time there will be three.

"Air Force 1" does not refer to the aircraft itself, it is the Call Sign of "A" aircraft carrying POTUS.

Yeah, I was expecting it. And I am so glad he went quickly without much suffering. I had been seeing him 2 - 3 times a year on my trips to FL. I would stop in at Burger King and buy breakfast to take to him. A couple of times I went down just to spend some time with him and we would go to lunch.

Very knowledgeable, read all the time on a variety of subjects. I just wish that I knew his relatives better so they would have called me.

They are caring for the cats and keeping up the place.

I know, but for the layman the plane(s) itself has always been "Air Force One".

I'll take a look.

A cancer kills the "hostess" it lives off
Right, the execs that ran Hostess ran up a two billion dollar debt, raised their pay three times and it is the union's fault because they wouldn't cut their pay in half.

What did the election tell us?
Tells us the lower half of society is now the majority.
There was a time when taking charity had a stigma-- no one wanted to be a parasite. Now taking food stamps, Welfare, unemployment, free school lunches is cool. Hey, if it's free, why not?
When the Great Society (President Johnson's Welfare society) first started in the 60's black illegitimacy was 4%. Now it's over 70%. You get more money on the Welfare check if you have more bastards, so why not?
When I went thru grade school 40 years ago, less than 10% of children received free lunches. Now almost 25% of public school kid get lunches, breakfasts and some even get dinner. Then they go home where Momma got free groceries with her EBT card. More free stuff! Why not!
Want to see who won? Look at Madonna parading her 54-year-old boobs on stage. Look at the woman in Cleveland bragging about her Obamaphone. Look at the Occupy Wall Street protesters crapping on the sidewalk.
The slime is now the majority.
Well said although it doesn't look like this reality is going to go away. At some point, the hardworking will have to break away from govt oppression or get sucked into this commie plot.
hahahahahaha

AF1 is the plane the president is on, isn't it? either of those two planes are not called air force one when the president is not aboard...

I know, but those two planes are specifically used as AF1 planes aren't they? That was my point.

Yea, who needs 40 hour work weeks? Who needs decent wages? The corporations who so kindly have given you a job so you can have the occasional meal, should have the right to control every aspect of your life. Who needs slavery when we can just do away with unions?If they don't work for me, they don't eat.

The real sheep, Vince, where the kool aid drinkers who swallowed the Faux News BS that Etchy was leading in Ohio.

The Faux geniuses told us Etchy had a 5 point lead. Guess basic arithmetic is not your strong suit, eh Vince?
