You know, as long as I've been a member of FR I'm pretty sure that whenever someone has died I've always posted something to the effect of "RIP", or "Lord have mercy" or something like that.

I sure have.

Sean Penn. I didn't get it until the picture in post #7.

Perhaps we could organize a collective bowel movement across America coinciding wit the funeral/pep rally or whatever tribute to Hugo Obama has planned for all the networks during prime time.

Hugo’s cancer was a disease the US sent to him dontchyaknow.
Their leftist liars decreed it so the sheeples there believe it. Chavez got the Imperialistic metastatic cancer revolution treatment. Didn’t he say he was victorious over it? Whaaaa happened?

While Hugo was a certified nutjob to the extreme, his passing still affects those who loved him.

For their benefit, I pray that God will give them comfort in knowing that he is no longer ill or in pain.

For the rest of the world, Al Jazeera and Ahmanutjob have lost a trusted ally and friend. So, while the rest of the world will sleep a little easier tonight, they will not!!
