Well, I think in most noble endeavors we will find participants and practitioners whose motives may be less than noble, and we will find people with justifiable ill feelings toward them for that reason. On the other hand, we will also always find outsiders looking in who are jealous or envious to an extent that eclipses their high regard for the endeavor.
My sense of SSgt. Lanier is that he is wholly dedicated to his assignment, worked hard for it, and appears to understand the assignment well beyond the ceremonial aspect. My heart swelled with pride as I listened and watched him. He strikes me as a great American.
I, too, wish TV delivered more such features, and not just by Fox news.
Thanks for the thread on the shows. :)
Yes, everything about him spoke excellence and personified unquestionable dedication to his calling.
LOL! Think about SSgt. Lanier, and then think about some evil terrorist with his face covered in black cloth committing the ultimate act of cowardice in sawing off the heads of journalists or bombing innocent women and children as a means of discouraging resistance to a deadly regime. The contrast speaks volumes as to what our effort is really all about.
Do the Research, then comment. You are not getting any of this straight in your mind. My point of view is that is fine with me some people are just not adept at Sleuthing.
Oh, thank you so very much!
Now you've screwed up all of our stealth "breaking news" skulduggery. You are in SO MUCH TROUBLE!!!!! <g>
It could not have been better said.
Hey, bub, I'm sick of your snide comments to me. FYI, I HAVE DONE THE RESEARCH AND CONTRARY TO YOUR INFLATED OPINION OF YOURSELF, I DON'T NEED YOUR PERMISSION TO COMMENT ON THIS OR ANY OTHER TOPIC.
Sleuthing has nothing to do with it, Nancy Drew. Get a grip and buzz off....
Congratulations, Morgan, and well deserved with all the work you put into your spectacular post.
Phsstpok - thank you for all your hard work and analysis and I fully agree that for once choosing the best freeper comment(s) wasn't difficult this week; Morgan's post should be a stand alone thread.
OK, lighten up, Francis.
You've got a lot to prove to me before you slam samantha on anything, let alone the way you did based on the very mild post she made.
SHOUTING IS AN ADMISSION OF DEFEAT.
(of course, that makes this post totally incongruous... step back, take a breath and rethink your anger... that's my very simple advice...)
Hey Gladys Cravits, why don't you check out samantha's post #787 to me first before you call her post to me "mild"? In that post, she lashed out with an uncalled for attack and afterwards I didn't retaliate, but responded with a civil post in #831.
I've been around here longer than both of you and don't need to be told what I can or cannot post here and I certainly don't need to PROVE anything to you before responding to your bud, samantha. Got that? MYOB.
You've got a lot more problems than "proving yourself" to me. You've got to live with yourself and I think, when you slow down just a bit and think about it, that will be your biggest problem. You have nothing to prove to me, as you say, though I very specifically don't give a damn how long you've been posting here. You have a long way to go before you can justify the nasty rhetoric you spewed in your post, and I think you know that.
You're better than that.
I repeat, lighten up, Francis.
As to Gladys Cravits, if you think about it, the witch really was a witch. Gladys was right, all along. And the welfare and proper respect due to fellow freepers is MY BUSINESS. GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Oh, that needs a (grin) attached to it if ever a post does)
I am honored. Thank you.
Who do you think you are speaking to me this way? Did you also reprimand your good friend, samantha, for her uncalled for rant to me? Hmmmmmm? Funny, but I didn't read a post from you to her giving her a lecture about showing proper respect to me after she lost her cool. I wonder why that is? Here it is again since you're chosing to ignore it:
"They were on the offensive way ahead of the game, and they blew right by you.. Don't you read anything about Murtha? Can you add two and two and actually get four? I'm not going to do your homework for you. Before you call someone else lame do some research on your own Buddy!!!!!!!!!!! Reminds me of having to explain a Joke to someone two or three times and they still do not get it.
Again, I didn't deserve that rant and had NOT called samantha lame, which makes her post to me even more bizarre.
You've got to live with yourself and I think, when you slow down just a bit and think about it, that will be your biggest problem.
Seriously, you need to go take your meds. I can live with myself just fine, LOL!
"And the welfare and proper respect due to fellow freepers is MY BUSINESS. GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go stick your nose somewhere else where it doesn't belong, Gladys. Oh, and next time you give lectures about showing "proper respect to fellow FReepers", you might want to follow your own advice. Now, leave me alone because I'm done with you....
You bet (our biggest customer was Biccardi. I value it highly myself.
BTW thanks for the mention. I enjoy this thread more every week.
Wow, you need some love.
You are a truely sad, sad little person.
I really pitty you.
(OK, everyone else, is he picking up anything that might do damage? No? OK, since he's not likely to do violence...)
I FORGIVE YOU!!!!!!!!
Isn't that big of me???????
Oh, I suggest you get some perspective on all of this, then GET A LIFE.
Sad, sad little person.
(next question... have I completely obscured what this was all about? Oh goody... now we can move on and ignore this whole kerfuffle........ PLEASE).
Now, anyone who seriously posts anything that starts out "who do you think you are speaking to me this way" doesn't really deserve a lot of respect or consideration. I'm offering you a chance to laugh this off and just drop it. If you really think you have the chops to keep going in this vein then I really, really pitty you, no joke. If you're not posting tongue in cheek then you're really a pathetic excuse for a human being.
My Dad worked for McKesson & Robbins for many years, who were the American distributors for an obscure Eurpoean company called Biccardi. My dad was a Marketing genius, one of the top 20 people in the 20th century in America in Corporate Marketing. While he was with McKesson it was decided that they needed to come up with a drink to promote Baccardi Rum. They decided to call it the Harvey Wallbanger. My dad's comment was "who in the world would want to buy a drink called the harvey wallbanger?" Even geniuses have off days.
He also didn't think "Robitussen" was a good product name.
He did have the smarts to sponsor the CBS coverage of the moon landings with his next company. He just needed to deal with the big issues...
OK. I'm enjoying this. Amateur week at the internet corral is SO MUCH FUN!!!!! Reember, you should never go into a battle of wits unarmed.
Rational argument is obviously beyond you.
Even really good insults are above your pay grade.
You have to stoop to OTHER PEOPLES lame graphics in order to take a cheap shot. Sad, truly sad (quick, is he hitting the abuse button.... oh, goody... this might go on for DAYS...... )
Now, have you vented enough? Have you gotten your anger out on me?
If that's the case then I am content. I don't hate you. I don't even want to disagree with you. I do want to get you to stop attacking other people here on FR, even if you do think they've taken shots at you. I looked at the posts you mentioned and, frankly, don't think you have a leg to stand on. Please drop it.
I've also looked up some of your other posts. I repeat, you're better than this.
