3. If she did, she's an idiot, if she didn't and her relatives did this...

 

Making someone's an obit a joke without their approval is classless

9. She doesn't "think" anything, she's dead

 


And your repeated denigration of this late woman, on account of her family having a sense of humor and making a harmless joke, is appalling.

15. Like jokes at her expense after her death? Appalling indeed.

"repeated denigration..."

Like jokes at her expense after her death? Appalling indeed.

16. "at her expense"

 

I am certain that her family knows her quite well, and quite better than you.

I have seen humorous obituaries, epitaphs on tombstones, etc., and what they normally suggest is that the family knew this person as a funloving person and did not find their passing to be an occasion for acting otherwise.

I am sorry you, and your humorless associates, have apparently never been in the company of such people.

Someone whose passing would otherwise go unnoticed by most of the world was made noteworthy by her family, to honor her sense of humor:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/17/politics/mary-anne-noland-obituary-richmond-2016-election/

"Her husband Jim Noland told NBC12 that one of her sons wrote the obituary and it was meant as a joke, a way for her family to continue her sense of humor.

"This isn't the first time a paid death notice has been used to send a personal message to the world," The Richmond Times-Dispatch said in a statement.

The statement also said that sometimes obituaries are used to comment on favorite sports teams, places to visit and drinks of choice, too -- in addition to politics."

So go ahead and tell us that her husband is classless and is making jokes "at her expense" in the way that he and the family decided to honor her.

11. But that's not what was said was it.

While I do not agree with the notion that HRC and Trump are the same, I do aknowlege that they both carry considerable baggage that influences my decision to vote for either. In Trump's case he is without a doubt unqualified for the job, has anger management isssues, and is a Republican, so it's a no brainer that he will not get my vote. HRC is a little more problematic. I cast my first vote for President with Jimmy Carter while I was serving in the US Army, and have voted straight Democratic in every election since, and 2016 will be no exceprion. Unfortunately my vote in this election will bring me no joy, and precious little hope for much change in the direction our nation is moving. HRC represents much of what is wrong with our political process and does not inspire me with confidence that she'll work to correct those problems. So yeah, I will do my duty as a Democrat and vote for Clinton in November, but for the first time in my political life I will not enjoy the experience.

They can be undesirable for different reasons.

13. Everybody Sucks 2016

Signs seem to be selling pretty hot, to the left and the right.

Donnie and Hillary are both pretty fetid, I agree.

This would be the rare chance for some sort of "Bull Moose" party to come forward.

(Sanders supporter here, in full disclosure.)

14. I'd like to know also.

I don't see how this is any more critical of Hillary than Trump.
