John McCain is dead. It's better for conservatives that he's gone. He was a good guy when he was younger, but after he lost the election for President to Barack Hussein in 2008, he soured. When President Trump was elected, McCain went completely mad, and he never forgave President Trump for doing what he had failed to do. He did a lot of damage in his final years as a Senator, but the brain tumors that killed him were probably effecting his mind at that point. Unlike the death of Ted Kennedy, which gave me nothing but joy, I feel a little sorry about McCain. He wasn't always an idiot.
So, whereever he is, if he's anywhere, I'm sure he's better off than he was in the last years of his life. And if he's nowhere, then it's no worse than going to sleep at night.
I've been reading this blog for a long time. The author is a down to earth person, an individual who always makes the best of things and continues to march. This particular post was close to home for me, because now we're dealing with the same issues. I wanted to give people who don't know her blog a chance to read it.

Worth Five Dollars:
A lot of people think that you had to have served in the military during a major conflict to be eligible for VA benefits, but that's not true.
We've been in so many undeclared wars since 1953, that it's entirely possible you are eligible for some benefits and don't even know it.
The VA and the U.S. government in general don't advertise what benefits are out there, or make any attempt at all to let Veterans know if they are eligible. So the burden is on the individual to do the research.

Concealed Carry a growing practice in America. I wonder why that might be?
Meanwhile, deep in the forest:
The kids are coming in tonight. They won't be leaving Nashville until about four this afternoon, and it's a four hour drive.
My wife has been changing the linens in the bedrooms. I asked her why, because they were just here a month ago. She says you always put fresh linen when people are coming to visit. I pointed out we did that after we left, so why do it again. Because that's what you do.........
For the first time in 32 years ( we moved here on August 22,1986) I've had a package stolen from my gate.
I had a BudK order , a number of knives for my storeroom, that was delivered on Friday. But, it wasn't there at the gate when I went to look for it.
Saturday I went to the post office. When a package is delivered and scanned, their computer captures the data and they can print an air photo showing the exact location the package was delivered. I had expected to find out it was inadvertently delivered to the wrong address, but it wasn't. The air photo showed it was delivered at my gate. Note...I apparently confused some folks here. I don't mean the post office TOOK an air photo of the delivery. I mean their computer has air photos of the entire county. They can print a section of the air photo with a little way mark symbol that shows where the delivery scan was made, and give it to you.
So, someone came down that old county road, which is just dirt, and when they saw the package at the gate, they stole it. Seems like things just get worse up here. I can't think who would have done that. Most of the "ethnics" don't travel out of town, because they don't have cars. None of the locals would do that, and very few Atlanta people would go out into the woods on that rough road. I don't know if BudK insures the packages, but I will call them on Monday and find out.
The post office people told me this is happening a lot now, and not just to them but to Fedex and UPS. First I had heard of that. They suggested I get a post office box at the P.O. and have my mail delivered there. Seems that people are stealing things out of mailboxes now too. I don't know if I will do that, as a post office box is expensive and I'd have to drive into town to get my mail.
