: WOW , I thought I was the only one that could piss off Dave, no, thats right anyone that dosen't need their hand held does that.
You haven't pissed me off. I'm not angry at all. I'm firm .
: Anycase, as I prepare for the lashing from the true board master Dave, I really respect Kerry coming from that angle, it takes balls, but is he willing to practice what he preaches?, Ill give him the benefit of the doubt.
I hope you can extend that benefit to others who may not support you blindly. Kerry unfortunately , cannot. And no lashings. If I hadn't been open enough to argue the points he/she brought up then there would have been a problem with me.
: Why can't the new generation have a voice, do you need 8 years experiece like me or a century of experience being angry like Dave to be heard, I don't think so.
Nor do I but before anyone throws out blanket condemnations of people/unions they should know the person they impose those dubious motivations to, understand the real economic situation and have at least a minor working theory of institutions they want to bring down. I have a few theories about astronomy but I wouldn't go to SETI and tell them I know how to solve all their problems.
:And Im not talking about just this post but all Kerry's posts. What Im seeing is someone trying to discredit the message by discrediting the messanger. Sometimes the outside person lookin in can really spot the problem, the players occassionally get so wrapped up in the "maticulisities" that they miss the simplist solutions.
The Kerrys solutions involve only what a novice would guess at. It's hard to consider any solution that involves such shallow observations. Attacking things you dislike because you don't know them is not just a sickness of the aging.
: I know I've been painted the crack smoking, anti-union antigonist face, but we don't have to listen to Terry if we don't want, so why are his ideas so threatening to us and why do some of us feel the need to waste valuble energy and passion on someone that, from what I hear, doesn't mean a damn. Someone's goin threw some serious inner battles.
Not at all. Kerrys ideas aren't threatening, they are blind. In this country innuendo tends to be considered assumed fact. Somewhere out there Bob Millar is telling people I am anti union. Get it ? The price of silence in this "guilty until proven innocent" exchange is far to high.
I don't get where you picked up the "crack smoking " but it wasn't me. I wouldn't have assumed that. And by the way, this site was created by "serious inner battles". Interesting huh ?
