    Back in the UK, we think Carter was actually a very good President. Of course, we don't think much of your Reagan, so take that however you like.

    Figures that within four of five posts someone would turn this into politics. Didn't think it would be you though.

    "we don't think much of your Reagan, so take that however you like."

    irrelevant.

    Sad to hear. It will be hard to recover for a man his age, and it will be a sad day when he passes. He is a good man if not a good president.

    If you live long enough, something will get you. Yeah, I agree that this doesn't sound good, liver cancer that's metastasized.

    He was a good, well intentioned man who I disagreed with frequently. And he worked his entire life for the betterment of humanity.

    I think Jimmy Carter is a very good man, a very brilliant and outgoing man. As President, he was somewhat indecisive and a disappointment for many Americans. But his philanthropy and charity is outstanding, he has done so much for humanity since he left the White House in 1981.

    I agree. More a technocrat who lacked the executive skill set a US President requires, which was his downfall.

    But a good person, without question. A Nobel Peace Prize winner for his wonderful work around the world. Nothing his Reagan successor could claim, nor either of the Bush Presidents, all of whom brought us costly conflicts and ruiness wars.

    You can see why I didn't think it would be you who would turn this into politics, but the person whom I expected to do so, did.

    Irrelevant.

    You know, there's this poster who complains vociferously, almost daily, about someone named southbeach queering up his threads? That poster wouldn't happened to be you, would it?

    Shame on me for thinking I started this thread for the purpose of wishing President James Earl Carter well.

    Then you should have come down on the member who wrote this, before I did, and "introduced" the politics:

    "As President, he was somewhat indecisive and a disappointment for many Americans."

    I did wish Carter well, calling him a "good person, without question." And I mentioned his Nobel Peace Prize, which no one else did at that point.

    Nevertheless, a frank evaluation of his Presidency is not irrelevant, nor is it "queering up" this thread. I'll give you an equally frank evaluation of Democratic Presidents Truman & Johnson. And no doubt you wouldn't wanna hear what I'd say about the Republican Presidents since Teddy Roosevelt.

    Republicans have not been shy in tarring Carter. I think you'd have better targets with them. But I don't wanna start a fight. I told you I thought Carter was a good man. Doing many wonderful things for others, a world figure & example, earning a Nobel Prize. He will be missed when that happens.

    But also a less than stellar President. Historians agree with that view. That's what Ronald Reagan campaigned & won on, if you have any regard for Reagan. A famous man's testimonial includes the good with the not-so-good. Unless he's a nobody and his family gets to edit it. I'm sorry if I introduced a negative perspective into this Carter narrative and upset you. I wasn't the only one.

    This had nothing to do with Reagan or either/both Bushes or politics ..... I had hoped. It was simply well wishes for a former president.

    "Then you should have come down on the member who wrote this, before I did, and "introduced" the politics"

    And yes I did. I know that the kid MartianMarvin was first as I was expecting that to be you by the third or fourth post. And RBR's comments were at least about Carter.

    "And no doubt you wouldn't wanna hear what I'd say about the Republican Presidents since Teddy Roosevelt."

    We've heard loud and queer how much you hate, loath, despise republicans in at least 30,000 of your posts.

    Well I'm glad you're keeping track. icon_wink.gif

    I'm a bit puzzled by this new hostility with me. Have you been turned towards SB's "Dark Side"?

    I say again, Jimmy Carter is a good person. When he passes he will be missed & mourned, by me & others. But him being a US President, and myself a US citizen, I am entitled to review his career.

    I only wish you held the Republicans who vehemently hate Carter, and some of the other RJ members here, to the same rigid standard regarding the ex-President to which you are subjecting me.

    And BTW, I sent an email to President Carter, through his library. Wishing him the best. I wonder how many other members here have done that?

    Remember this from above?

    "Nothing his Reagan successor could claim, nor either of the Bush Presidents, all of whom brought us costly conflicts and ruiness wars."

    Had nothing to do with Carter and liver cancer. You'd take a thread and about Barbie and a really hot Ken and find a way to work your hate into it.

    And remember how much you hate similar happening to you? Right?

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4090376/

    "OK, you win this round southbeach1500, aided by your surrogate 2bnaked. You've succeeded in trashing & derailing another of my threads, and so I'll abandon it. As you've forced me and others to do with theirs in the past. Anytime you see gay guys here being really happy you barge in to be disruptive & destructive.

    I was so happy when I posted this, so proud of my husband for the special recognition given to him. And yes, I'll call him my husband because that's what he is to me, whether you approve or not.

    And you took that joy away, from him and from me. I'm crying about it, which should give you great pleasure to know how much you've hurt me. That's all you're good for here, isn't it?

    Well, savor your victory, you can have it today, because I'm not about to leave RJ as you would like. And I will continue to oppose your attempts to drive Liberals from this site and to turn RJ into a Right Wing propaganda tool. And fortunately I'm not alone here in recognizing your pattern over the years, and knowing your objective here."


    So AGAIN Bob, if you don't like it happening to you, don't do it to others.

    I know you also hate religion and obviously "Do to others as you would have them do to you"

    You don't like it, then don't do it. I don't think it's religion so much as I just think it's common sense.

    Now I gotta get out of here to the gym and grocery.

    "Carter, asked if there were anything during his life he wished he had done differently, he quipped he wished he had sent "one more helicopter to get the hostages" from Iran, he quipped. "We would have rescued them and I would have been re-elected," he added, smiling. Reporters laughed."

    Chances are that the melanoma spread from his brain to his liver instead of spread to his brain.

    Friend of mine in Cali that couldn't figure out where the melanoma was that spread to his live and it turned out that it was ocular melanoma with the tumor on the back of his eyeball.

    "He said it's still not clear exactly where the cancer originated, although with melanoma, he's told that 98 percent of the time it develops first in the skin. He also said that the rest of his body will be scanned repeatedly for months to come and that more cancers may show up elsewhere. The cancer spots on his brain are about 2 millimeters."
