I have written many many posts this week, only to erase my words before they were ever posted because I have been completely unable to find the right words to express myself. I guess what it all... Read More

    Freedom is never free, but is one of the most costly (and therefore most precious) treasures known to man. Untold thousands (millions?) have laid down their lives for freedoms of various kinds ... our freedoms enjoyed here should not be taken for granted, either. Let us not cast our pearls to the swine. By this, I do not mean any PERSON.. but let us not waste the GOOD we all have within us, our talents and gifts..our freedom of expression by demeaning and degrading it.. turning all the GOOD we are capable of into swill ...let us treat each other with the same level of respect we demand for our patients...are we any less deserving ? Let us think first, then speak...
    With all the ugly that is looming before us, wars on every front, more attacks on our homeland sure to come... it is disheartening to witness such destruction of each other... peace, my friends... peace.

    Aimee, suzy, & blueyes,
    Right-o!

    Freedom with responsibility....golden rule...remember that we're in a virtual breakroom. Excellent thoughts, one that I aspire to every time on the this BB.

    So, now we're in a love-fest of agreement. If some of those who are responsible for those ugly postings (and yes, suzy, I have have read the ones you mentioned) would behave accordingly, then perhaps we COULD have more interesting discussions & debates. Perhaps then I wouldn't need to use my ignore function for some of those posters out there.

    eltrip,

    I think it's because of the board lately, but myself included, I am becoming paranoid and now thinking everything is some underlying message. So I have to ask, related to your post above:

    I don't remember mentioning any threads/postings in particular (did I?). I guess I have such a HA I have trouble figuring out if you agree with me or think I am one of those responsible for ugly postings. Please bear with me. I am so confused lately. So confused.

    Yikes! Please bear with me, too, Suzy. I was trying to do two things at once & should have known better.

    No, I didn't think that you were one of those responsible for ugly postings. I quite often agree with you (this time as well). Your posts are, more often than not, quite well thought out, having excellent points. From time to time I may disagree with your opinion, but not with how you phrase your ideas. I've never seen you stoop to the ugliness that I've seen displayed on this BB by a few.

    I'll try to not be so vague in the future. Now, as to your headache...I hope that it is dissipating...If not, then I'm willing to share the pain meds my dentist provided for my root canal yesterday!
