One last thing I have to say about Herman Cain...

I want to be clear that I didn't say anything derogatory about this man or his death. I was surprised by his passing and I only posted he had died and what I "surmised" by when I first heard of his being in Tulsa and that he became ill within the time frame of known exposure and positive results.

I don't know much about him other than his pizza business which I never heard of before he came on the national scene. Still don't know anything about "Godfather's Pizza".

But I don't want my posts/words twisted by someone 5 years from now who will say I was "happy" that he died or some nonsense like that. Just as Scalia's STILL mysterious death which I commented on at the time. Years have gone by and all we know is that he died "of natural causes". I never wished death on anyone and especially Cain who I ASSUME/speculate suffered greatly while fighting to live. He seemed to me to be a pleasant man but he was a trumper so I didn't pay much attention to him.

I don't like to post "RIP" because I don't like that "code word". It's meaningless to me. It's like saying "thank you for your service" which again is just empty words to me. Most people say it as if they truly care and then go on their way, without another thought about that person they just said those words to. Also, I don't recall any repub saying RIP for John Lewis. They didn't comment at all...just ignored it.

I will leave it to Cains family and friends to mourn his death. I can't really mourn someone I didn't know.
