industry, while cranking out some of the greatest aircraft ever to reach the military, once upon a time, we were the unspoken home of Rosie the Riviter,
Long Island Ice Tea, Billy Joel and the red light camera.

John McCain was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam conflict, he spent time in a Viet Cong prison camp, and was most likely subjected to torture,
I think that whether it was the Chinese water torture or the bamboo shoots under the fingernails, I believe that he has carried those traumatic times
and those days along with baggage that really doesn't belong in today's newly digitized world, he is a relic that needs to head for the tar pits, and to
dedicate himself to doing much good by lying there in the tar pits as little more than biodegradable mass given back to society.

Among the many nightmares that often come to me in trouble times, there is the horror story that has John McCain steering the wheel of the
ship of state, directing our country from a bunker below the White House and playing soldier boy at 80 years old, no that would never do. I have never
been to Arizona and most probably McCain has never been to Long Island, he might be trying to pass it off as, comedy, but there is really nothing funny
about the fact that as a public official his behavior is continually under scrutiny and that if he cannot contain his thinking so as not to demographically
demean nor negate any segment of the population.

I really think that John needs to return to Arizona and begin building a fence, regrettably more people flow through his open borders, perhaps to be
the landscapers that descend upon Long Island, like locusts. If he really wanted to do more to brighten America's future, I hope that he is considering
electrifying the fence! He will always be considered as nothing more than mediocre in my book, just another glory seeking personality who had the good
fortune of being, at one time, exposed in the media and trumped up to more than they really were.
I have the privilege of knowing a man who was orphaned at a young age who served for our country during WWII; who was shot down and taken prisoner by the Germans. Who despite everything he endured returned to the USA, married his sweetheart, raised a family, was successful in business and became involved in local politics and held a local political office for many years. He is a man of integrity and valor. He is a man whose word is golden, and who I have never once heard insult anyone or anyplace with whom he had issues.

Mr. McCann, with his back pedaling, dalliances, divorces and other tawdriness , is not a man who should through stones. My friend is a true hero; Mr. McCain should stop on LI and meet this man whose boots he is not worthy of licking.

Given all he has done to try to reduce veterans' benefits, McCain needs to shut his yap in public entirely. His comments about Long Island are just more hoof-in-mouth disease, as far as I'm concerned.

He talks out both sides of his mouth -- the question is which side is the truth?

During his campaign run for President he didn't have any regrets about taking donations from a place which he thought nothing of insulting. Where's our thanks?
