I know this has been mentioned. I think Herman Cain deserves a thread of his own. I post this out of respect for the dead. I didn't like his politics but I respect life. RIP LINK

I didn't like Cain's politics but you have to look at his life and say Only In America!!! He was a pizza executive who had the opportunity to run for president. His passing may be the light needed to illuminate the importance of wearing masks.

Not really literally. Sorry for being so anal here, but this word is far too often misused by our young.

Not when that life shows such high disregard for the lives of others.

I met him when he visited my college to give a speech. I took a picture with him afterward and he asked where I was from. I replied: “Uzbekistan.”

This was April 2013.

In what city were you born?

Is Uzbekistan safe for tourists?

Tashkent is a very safe city for tourists. It's a very modern city that travelers from different nationalities come to visit. Walking around Tashkent, you'll be seeing and meeting people from all over the world. Violent crime is unheard of in Uzbekistan but you should be wary of pickpockets in bazaars and markets…

Canes was born in California. He was trolling Cain about Cain's famous "uzbeckybeckybeckystan" gaffe.

I was sure you met him, but I thought you were joking about the Uzbekistan part.

RIP.

Of all of the non-mask wearing Republican politicians, it's a shame Cain had to be the one to die from COVID-19.

Stop, just admit you didn't get it. He was joking. Why would you ask Canes what city he's from in a country he's not from. He was born in the US.

You stop. I knew CC was telling the truth about having a picture shaking hands with Cain. I believed him because he once shook hands with a foreign dignitary, I forget her name, and had a picture of it.

I was asking in what city he was born out of curiosity. If anyone should stop it's you because you completely missed my objective and injected your own.

Now if you will allow. CC, in what city were you born?
