    2019 Political in memoriam

    I am starting this because of the Ross Perot discussion. A number of political figures have died this year and been listed in the thread on the non-political board but we couldn’t comment on them due to board rules.

    So this is here to note the passing of any former politicians that die this year and we can comment on their accomplishments for the good and bad.

    Strangely enough, at the time of Perot's passing, I heard a giant sucking sound.

    This is a good idea as we've lost a lot of them.


    Just a side note: sometime between 1988 and 1992, Perot and Iacocca had several meetings to plan to run together as a third-party, but they got into a disagreement over which one of them was going to be the head of the ticket. Then, they both decided a third party couldn't win.

    Not long after that, Perot ran third party all on his own. (One of the hoped for appeals of Iacocca was that he was from Pennsylvania, a battleground both then and now).
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Daddy Bush (41).

    One of the last of the gentleman/statesman politicians.

    Though, I can never forgive him for caving to the extreme right-wing of his party and giving us decades of Clarence Thomas.
