McCains Path to Public Service

69 posts in this topic

Not wanting to hijack hooked's thread, I thought I would throw this in for good measure, I mean, after all I think we all want to strive for a fair and balanced HSOforum.

OK, I’m going too really get you guy’s going now. Here are McCain’s credentials for entering politics. Oh, and if my next meeting is canceled I just may have to find, and post, all the flip-flopping McCain is now doing to gain votes from the left wing of the Republican party. It’ll take me awhile because the list is sooooooooo long.

This is from the site: THE U.S. VETERAN DISPATCH

Before John McCain's tour of duty in Vietnam, he married Carol Shepp, a model from Philadelphia. On his 23rd bombing mission over North Vietnam in 1967, McCain was shot down and captured.

While he was imprisoned, Carol was in an auto wreck (1969), thrown through her car's windshield and left seriously injured. Despite her injures, she refused to allow her POW husband to be notified about her condition, fearing that such news would not be good for him while he was being held prisoner.

When McCain returned to the United States in 1973 after more than five years as a prisoner of war, he found his wife was a different person. The accident "left her 4 inches shorter and on crutches, and she had gained a good deal of weight."

Yearning to make the grade of admiral, McCain enrolled in the National War College at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. and underwent physical therapy in order to fly again. The Navy excused his permanent disabilities and reinstated him to flight status, effectively positioning him for promotion.

In his book, The Nightingale's Song, Robert Timberg chronicled McCain's post-Vietnam military assignments and some of his "adulterous" behavior leading to his divorce from Carol and marriage to Cindy Hensley.

Timberg wrote, "in the fall of 1974, McCain was transferred to Jacksonville as the executive officer of Replacement Air Group 174, the long-sought flying billet at last a reality. A few months later, he assumed command of the RAG, which trained pilots and crews for carrier deployments. The assignment was controversial, some calling it favoritism, a sop to the famous son of a famous father and grandfather [both were Navy admirals], since he had not first commanded a squadron, the usual career path."

While Executive Officer and later as Squadron Commander McCain used his authority to arrange frequent flights that allowed him to carouse with subordinates and "engage in extra-marital affairs." Such behavior was a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice rules against adultery and fraternization with subordinates..

Timberg wrote, "Off duty, usually on routine cross-country flights to Yuma and El Centro, John started carousing and running around with women. To make matters worse, some of the women with whom he was linked by rumor were subordinates . . . At the time the rumors were so widespread that, true or not, they became part of McCain's persona, impossible not to take note of."

In early 1977, Admiral Jim Holloway, Chief of Naval Operations promoted McCain to captain and transferred him from his command position "to Washington as the number-two man in the Navy's Senate liaison office. It wasn't long before the "fun loving and irreverent" McCain had turned the liaison office into a "late-afternoon gathering spot where senators and staffers, usually from the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, would drop in for a drink and the chance to unwind."

In 1979 at a military reception in Honolulu, McCain met Cindy Hensley, an attractive 25-year-old woman from a very wealthy politically-connected Arizona family. Cindy's father, Jim, founded the Hensley and Company, the nation's third-largest Anheuser-Busch distributor.

McCain described their first meeting, "She was lovely, intelligent and charming, 17 years my junior but poised and confident. I monopolized her attention the entire time, taking care to prevent anyone else from intruding on our conversation. When it came time to leave the party, I persuaded her to join me for drinks at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. By the evening's end, I was in love."

While still married to Carol, McCain began an adulterous relationship with Cindy. He married Cindy in May 1980 -- just a month after dumping Carol and securing a divorce. The newlyweds honeymooned in Hawaii.

McCain followed his young, millionairess wife back to Arizona where her father helped catapult McCain into politics,

All references to slick Willy will be ignored by me as he is not running for president.

fishorgolf - It's pointless. Read about 95% of the political stuff posted on this HSOforum. A lot of folks drank too much of the CNN/WCCO/NBC/Star Tribune news kool-aid and are too far gone to be saved.

I think you guys are way off base. Homer Simpson does not have the experience to lead this country.

Vote Grandpa Simpson. He would be as good as the two clowns running now.

Here’s a video of an informal press conference McCain held in Michigan.

The audio is a little tough to hear, so to clarify, McCain insisted that “we have succeeded” in Iraq. In fact, he said it multiple times: “I am happy to stand in front of you to tell you that this strategy has succeeded. It has succeeded. It has succeeded.”

(It reminds me of the time Marge Simpson told Bart that Springfield is “a part of us all. A part of us all. A part of us all.” She then explained it would help him remember and believe the line if she repeated it this way.)

OK, McCain probably misspoke again. He must have meant that he thinks Bush’s strategy is “succeeding,” not has “succeeded,” right?

Wrong. He’s now referring to Bush’s Iraq policy in the past tense, as if the war is over.

This Guy has LOST HIS MIND! He is a complete joke. "What did I say" "What"

It’s possible John McCain decided he doesn’t really want to be president after all. It’s a tough, demanding job, and maybe McCain came to the conclusion he’s just not up to the task. It seemed like a good idea to him last year, but maybe he bit off more than he could chew. It’s too late for McCain to bow out, but he can ensure his defeat by saying the most breathtakingly dumb things imaginable.

Take Social Security, for example, one of the most popular and successful government programs in American history. McCain recently said he supports privatizing the system. Then he said, he doesn’t want to privatize the system. Then he said he would privatize the system, he just doesn’t want it to be called privatization.

Listening to him talk, it sounded as if John McCain, after more than a quarter-century in Congress, simply didn’t know how the Social Security system works. And this week, McCain proved that he simply doesn’t know how the Social Security system works.

It takes more than a conservative slant before I will accuse someone of drinking the FOX koolaid. Maybe something like the only thing Obama accomplished is being the senate 143 days. If you believe that you are on the FOX Koolaid.

And for just being one station, they sure do leave a lot of ignorant people in their wake. Gotta give them props for that.

I am starting to get the feeling I am being spamed here.

It isn’t spamming, it’s just having someone pointing out that the emperor has no cloths. The vast majority of the conservative responses on this and other threads is pure rhetoric and never backed up by fact. The most recent example is that of Uncle Bill stating Obama is going to increase our taxes and give that money to the illegal’s, and that almost immediately followed a post where I showed he cosponsored a bill, with McCain, that comes down hard on illegal’s. I just wish some of this stuff was backed up with some fact and as we’ve seen, FOX news is perpetuating the misinformation on a daily basis. Now true, there are also liberal sites that do the same but the liberals/Dem’s on this board usually back up their statement with fact s, not simple rhetoric.

p.s.

I kind of started this thread with my tongue firmly planted in my check as a response to Hooked’s thread but I am amazed at the reaction of some folks.

Maybe the wrong word for it but I just get this feeling there is a little more to petepeters posts than just passion for his beliefs. But then I could be wrong which will not be the first or last time.

Fisher, Just so you know I do not take any thing on internet forums like this personally and I hope neither do you. Having said that, What else could be my motivation, other than posting things that make mccain, republicans, fox news, bush, cheney, fisher eek , rove, pawlenty, coleman and others look bad or sound foolish??

    • Never said you were fired did I?  Why is it that you always assume and then 99% of the time look ignorant?  I wouldn't expect anything less from your caliber.
    • Lol. Wasn't fired. Just retired. Keep trying JV.........    
    • We can say we were there anyway.
    • Hey Push nice to see you used D2E.  Sorry about your mod badge.  I'm pretty far from liberal but if it helps you wipe away the tears feel free.  Maybe next time you won't sit out the election.     #rentfree   For those opinions that matter here on this subject I do hope that the futures deals are not like this one.  However it is nice to see a politician actually do what he said he was going to do even though I may not agree with the solution to the problem.  
    • I read you should freeze your venny for 60 days so you kill any organisms.  Looks like I will be waiting a little bit.  I will have to try something else.  Wheres your favorite place to purchase cures and seasonings?  thanks again.   
    • CCG here is an old tsb.  Not for your year but it's the same smoke and mirrors.   #PIP4574M: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Subject: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Models: 2007 Buick Rainier

      2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Trail Blazer
      2007-2008 GMC Envoy, Sierra, Yukon
      2008 Pontiac G8
      2007-2008 Saab 97x
      with a 5.3L or 6.0L Aluminum Block V8 Engine
      and AFM (Active Fuel Management)
      RPOs LC9, LH6, L76, or LFA


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This PI was superseded to include revise the affected RPO codes, specify that this is for Aluminum Block Engines only, update models and provide a general update on the status of this investigation in step 5. Please discard PIP4574M.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

      Condition/Concern:
      Some customers may complain that their vehicle has been using approximately 1 quart of oil every 500-1,000 miles. In most cases, the customer will advise that this did not start until the engineaccumulated approximately 30,000 miles or more. In some cases, the customer may note that this is more apparent when driving at highway speed. In rare instances, a SES light and engine misfire may be encountered with a P0300 DTC.

      Upon inspection, an oil fouled spark plug(s) may be noted. In most cases, static compression and cylinder leakage testing will appear normal. Excessive oil may or may not be found in the intake manifold.

      In most cases, this is the result of stuck oil control rings. Generally, the stuck oil control rings are the result of excessive oil on the cylinder walls. The excessive oil can come from the PCV system and/or the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan.

      Recommendation/Instructions:
      If this concern is encountered, follow the steps below:

      Visually inspect the entire engine and the underside of the vehicle for any evidence of oil leaks and repair them as necessary.
      Inspect the fresh air hose/pipe that is attached to the RF (passenger side) valve cover and all related connections for restrictions, such as plastic casting flash or a pinched hose, and repair as necessary. A restriction in this area may cause excessive crankcase vacuum and oilconsumption through the PCV vacuum tube.
      If the truck has an engine misfire and a spark plug that is obviously oilfouled, skip to step 4 since this proves that it has an obvious oilconsumption concern. If not, perform an oil consumption test as outlined in the latest version of oil consumption of 01-06-01-011 to verify the concern before proceeding to step 4. Allow the vehicle to sit on a level surface with the engine off for at least 10 minutes to allow the entire engine to drain back to the oil pan before checking the engine oillevel and adding oil. Compare the oil consumption test results to one of the scenarios below to determine further direction:
      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles and no low oil light has been experienced, no repairs should be performed as this should be considered acceptable oil consumption as outlined in the latest version of 01-06-01-011.

      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles but the customer has experienced a low oil light, refer to the latest version of PIP3959 for a potential low oil light sensor concern.

      • If the dealership verifies that oil consumption is More than 1 quart every 2,000 miles, perform the steps below as necessary:

      Determine if the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system by removing the intake manifold and measuring how much oil can be poured out of the throttle body opening with the throttle bodyremoved. It is normal to get a couple of teaspoons of oil out of the intake. If the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system, several ounces of oil will be measured, many times as much as a 1/4-1/2 quart.
      • If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system, go to step 5.

      • If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system, inspect the PCV baffle as outlined in the rest of Step 4 below:

      4a. Remove the LH (driver's side) valve cover and inspect the PCV baffle drain holes shown below to see if they are plugged with hardened oil deposits. If they are plugged, replace the valve cover, ensure that the customer is changing their oil according to the maintenance schedule in their owner's manual, and re-evaluate the concern. Generally, this would not be a concern until several thousand miles have accumulated.

      4b. With the LH (driver's side) valve cover removed, inspect the PCV baffle to ensure that it is properly sealed to the valve cover by flipping it over and adding a little oil to the corner of the valve cover as shown below. The oil should stay in place as shown on the 2 outer valve coversbelow. If the oil drains into the PCV baffle as pointed out on the middle valve cover below, replace the valve cover. Generally, if this is the cause of the concern, it would have been present early in the life of the vehicle or shortly after valve cover replacement.


      Important: If Step 4a or 4b led to valve cover replacement, perform Step 4b again on the replacement valve cover before installing it.


      • 4c. If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system but the valve cover passed the tests outlined above, the engine may have an over-aggressive lifter that is causing the oil ingestion through the PCV system. Sometimes the lifter may be doing this intermittently so it is not always possible to isolate one by inspecting the lifter flow with the driver's valve cover removed. As a result, it is suggested to replace all 8 of the left/driver bank lifters due to the oil in the intake and re-evaluate the oil consumption concern. The right/passenger side lifters should not cause oil in the intake so there is no need to replace them. If the vehicle returns with excessive oil consumption but is no longer ingesting oil through the PCV system, it most likely has stuck oilcontrol rings as outlined in Step 5.

      If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system and there are no obvious valve seal concerns, this is most likely the result of the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan spraying oil on the bottom of the cylinders when active fuel management is on. This may eventually cause the oil control rings to stick and increase the rate of oilconsumption. As outlined in the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D), a related bulletin is going to be released to repair this by cleaning the oil control rings and installing a shield over the AFM pressure relief valve. This bulletin was scheduled for a July 2010 release but the bulletin is still going through the final stages of the release process. At this time, it is on track for a mid-August release date. Once released, you will be able to find the new bulletin in the New Bulletins Section of Service Information and this PI will be updated to include the bulletin number as well.
      If you would like to view the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D) mentioned above, you can find it by following this path:

      • Go to the GM Training page. (If necessary, there is a link to this page at GM Global Connect "Dealerworld")

      • Enter your Training Person ID and Password.

      • Click the "Service Know-How/TECHAssist" Link

      • Click the "Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the "Searchable Streaming Video" Link

      • Click the "10210.07D - July 2010 Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the 9th Link down for High Oil Consumption

      Notice: Piston and Ring sets should no longer be replaced for this concern unless it is absolutely necessary. If stuck oil control rings are found and you decide to replace all 8 pistons and all 8 piston ring sets, we DO NOT recommend honing or deglazing the cylinder walls due to the great variation between equipment, machine shops, and technicians performing these repairs. This is because it is generally unnecessary and can induce unnecessary cylinder wall and/or piston ring damage if it is done incorrectly or not cleaned thoroughly. The cylinder walls just need to be cleaned thoroughly with brake cleaner before the new piston and ring sets are installed. At this time, you may also experience a back order situation if you order new pistons and rings.
