There Are Limits To All Things

Not speaking ill of the dead, is actually part of our old religious heritage, the ones that most of our ancestors followed prior to the arrival of missionaries of any type.  It, like many funeral traditions, was predicated on calming the spirits of the departed.

Amazingly enough, it is the death of those whose spirits would be thought to be the most evil and vindictive that cause the prohibition to be shattered.

I won’t join in, but the world is truly a better place when some people are no longer a part of it.

I decided not to comment, because I agree with your sentiments, and you know why. But then I read the retarded Bushmoron’s quote on Helm’s very belated passing, and lost it!

Jesse Helms was a kind, decent, and humble man and a passionate defender of what he called “the Miracle of America.” So it is fitting that this great patriot left us on the Fourth of July.

OK, I’m not an American citizen. OK, I live on the other side of the World. But even I and many here know about Jesse Helms and despised him! As did most of the World, who had head of him. Perhaps one of Bushmorons historical comparisons will be to the likes of Botha, Mangope and other luminary South African leaders.

Yes… I can think of several others that the World would be a better place without.

Some dedicate their entire lives to hate and aren’t worthy of comment on their passing.
