    Since this is turning political, I am not in favor of calling him a hero either. Try keeping it in the proper perspective and leave it at that please

    This is not political.
    It is simply not in the correct forum.

    Agreed, referring to the post above mine....

    The initial screenshot of his warbird, fitting, but not a hero in my book, just a mostly well rounded person with some flaws. Of course the "hero to all but one" makes it political because the reference is in regards to our current President, so your warning, while duly noted is not fairly distributed.

    Your PM noted, we will agree to disagree. Politics indeed has meted its way into this thread. The irony is that I do not disagree with his accomplishments, and would have left well enough alone with admiring the skin, however politics was injected before my post was admonished. While I acknowledge moderation is a tough job, you are taking a one sided attack on my view point rather than moderating neutrally.

    Mal998, beautiful shot and appropriate. My apologies for derailing your initial subject. Perhaps start a fresh thread and see if it can stay a tribute to those that admired him. My apologies again for derailing.

    No worries. I just tried to be respectful to the family without making a political statement. Nothing more to be said.
