John McCain, genuine U. S. hero and current U. S. Senator from Arizona, announced yesterday that he is discontinuing treatment for his brain cancer, which means he is on his way out.

I admit to mixed feelings about McCain. There is NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER that he was a genuine hero for his actions while a POW in Vietnam. He has done some good work as a U. S. Senator.

I believe (for what my belief may be worth) that the fact that he LOST a presidential bid and Donald Trump WON a presidential bid has sort of unhinged him and he was so pissed off that he has been deliberately obstructive to things he normally would have supported just because Trump was behind or involved in them, to the detriment of his party and his country.

I don't fully know quite how I feel about the whole thing. Sometimes real life is hard.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Love him or hate him,John McCain served his country both in war and in politics. Right or wrong, he always did what he believed to be right. He's lived a life well lived. I'd say that speaks very well of the man.

John McCain is a hero. Trump was wrong to say different.

John McCain is a war hero for his Vietnam service. No question about it.

As a senator, with most conservatives here in Arizona...not so much.

A complex man, and a poster child for term limits.
