RIP. Been a long time since a president has passed (Gerald Ford 12 years ago).



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

RIP



This man was involved in a lot of wars but that goes for most presidents. Seemed like a decent guy though. RIP.



Not much better then McCain and only slightly better then his son.

He was the last Republican Presidet to stand up to Israel. That counts for something. Yet he is also the guy that really pushed a new war program with the Middle East that essentially has been given more funding to the military industrial complex than they did in the cold war.

He also initiated the war with Iraq through lies and trickery, giving him the go-ahead to invade Kuwait, then lying about Iraqi atrocities in Kuwait, and invading. So there are good and bad bits about the guy. 



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
