ALL RIGHTY, THEN

Let's try this again. If you who follow my blog read my post "Just a Reminder" (just a couple of posts down..the one with the stunning creature in her underwear) then this is old news and you can surf away from here. But it is obvious that I was not taken seriously. I KNOW that there are people who disagree with me and the group I represent about the idea of justice for the EMS Moms. That's fine. BUT, as I said before, this blog is not for "lively debate" or to provide a forum for the arguments against our mission. There are plenty of venues for that if one feels the need and I am sure that the people who read here know that not everyone sees this issue in the same way. There is no need to feel obliged to post an opposing viewpoint on our space.

Like I said, if you want to disagree with me, have at it. Just don't do it here. This is our safe zone and, after what most of us have been through, we need a place to safely express our goals and ideas. Neither SMAAC nor I, personally, have ever claimed to speak for all mothers in the EMS age group. However, should we succeed, all mothers in that age group could benefit.

So, respectfully, let me ask, again, that you take your debating elsewhere. We mothers of SMAAC are tired of the arguing and are ready for the doing and are into live and let live. To each her own. Peace.

PS* Have I mentioned that we don't give a flying fart how someone might think this policy makes us look? Ya gotta love the Internet. It's sort of a recipe for instant enemies. Just add opinions and shake. LOL

Just a check since I have been extremely over-sensitive of late, but You really don't think I was arguing do you?

I honestly believe you are right and have the right.

Robin said...

NOOOOO, Lori. This was not directed at you and I am so sorry if you got that impression. Usually, when I do a post like this, it is about comments I have received that I reject. You have not done a thing wrong. Have a hug on me. ;p)

You have to wonder why *some* people have such an over-riding need to keep debating the BSE and BSE Mothers who choose to speak in their own voices. Those who want to continually engage in debate and argument about the BSE are the only ones who truly know why they continously engage on this path. I wonder why?? History is history, no matter how hard one wants to rewrite it or revise it, dismiss, discount or denigrate. It was what it still is... a travesty.

You are right Mandy, but I am having to hold back the tears *gasp, *sob. One of these folks called my woman in the purple undies "hideous." Oh my poor lady. I thought she was kinda funny. What is it they say about people with no sense of humor?

Sandy Young said...

WhI cannot understand is why they believe that if we are working on what WE want to, it somehow takes away from THEM. If we are so insignificant, and what we have to say so unimportant, then why do they bother to come here and jump our shit when we say it?

Sandy Young said...

BTW, I thought she was kinda cute, Robin. Purple always was a good color for people who are pissing others off....

"Hideous" Lady??
Jeez...Robin..I thought maybe you had a hidden camera from your puter to mine and took a pic of me!!! LOL! I like my purple undies too!
As they say.."Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder". "Hideous" Lady looks good to me!
Perhaps your commenter is a bit over-sensitive..maybe the "Hideous" Lady pic, was as some might say...triggering??
