Skip to comments.(Vanity) An Open Letter of Thanks To Freepers Re Terri Schiavo, From One Who Frequently Disagrees
Posted on 03/16/2005 12:21:57 PM PST by pleasedontzotme
This is my first post here, and it may very well be my only one, but I wanted to just thank you all for being such a great resource for information on the Terri Schiavo case.
I usually come here when my blood pressure is just too low, because Id have to say I usually (okay, almost always) disagree with the views expressed here. (dons flame suit) But I admire you folks as a community of individuals who care about each other and about your country. While I disagree with most of the policies espoused here, you still are patriotic Americans and it shines through. There is clearly an intelligence to the discussion level here and I learn many facts.
Through lurking here on FR (and, lets be honest, that IS what Im doing :-) ), Ive gotten to learn so much about the Terri Schiavo case. As a third-year law student and one who has recently had the opportunity to watch the justice system at its absolute worst in a case involving a dear friend of mine, I am gravely concerned by the way Judge Greer has acted, and the ignoring of the misdeeds of Michael Schiavo. (Not to mention the darned videos of Terri, which so clearly show her to be responsive. Or the refusal of Michael S. or Greer to allow her to go through therapy. Or Michaels 1992 testimony I want to care for her for the rest of her life... (ugh) Or...well, I could go on.
Anyway, folks, the information yall have provided here on this issue has been terrific. Regardless of the outcome of this case, and I dont know that I have a whole lot of hope for a good outcome, I just wanted to say how much fun it is being on the same side of the fence with you all for once.
Now, if youll excuse me, Im going to go back to hugging a tree or putting on Birkenstocks or eating Ben & Jerrys, or whatever it is that people like me do.
Respectfully, gRATefully (just a tip of the hat to Freeper sensibilities), and with hope Terris life can be spared,
And thank you for sharing!
You sound too intelligent and reasonable to be a liberal/dumbocrat.
What exactly is it that you disagree with here? Patriotism? Hard Work to get ahead in life? Stopping wasteful and inefficient Govt. programs?
Thank you very much for the appreciation you have expressed.
As for me, my total aversion to leftist policies, politics, politicians and commentators does not make me unaware that their are people who are my countrymen on the other side of the political spectrum.
An anti-murder RAT? Don't let on, they'll throw you out of the party.
My vote is for you to be allowed to stay here, as long as you behave. That was a very nice letter, and although you disagree with us on many issues, you have been taught about the sanctity of life and the Lord's workings, through this site. May God Bless you and work on your life in mysterious ways.
We'll have you a full fledged member of the VRWC within 6 months.
I wear Birkenstocks too. Does that make me "one of you"? I think there is hope for you. You can't be all that bad because you don't belong at DU for sure. You sound much too intelligent for them.
No need for a ZOT.
Hope you stick around.
You appear to be intelligent, and definitely have a sense of humor. I predict you will come over to the "dark side" before all is said and done.
And if you have a dog, post pix & talk about it. We like that a lot! :)
Please. I want to zot you.
Pray for Terry. If you don't pray, hope for Terry.
See my advise on post #13.
Don't hug it to tight. You might get a splinter where you don't want one. :-)
It is good to see that you are with us on this case though.
Have a cup of Starbucks with me? :)
Hey. Stick around. That was a nice post.
