IslandDrumz

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

It's Veteran's Day!

Happy Veteran's Day to all past, present and future vets. Thank you for your service that allows us to have the freedoms we do. Even the freedom to post whiny little missives on this blog. The freedom to worry about who is leaving snarky posts under assumed names. The freedom to sign off as anon. I'm afraid our biggest problem is focus. We have 6 months to endure. Then we get to exercise our most important freedom to vote for a leadership team that will do it's best to represent its citizenry. Realizing most actions will at least please half the folks on our little island. One can only hope they will at least talk to us. 6 months.

See all the new flags on the island? They are from a local Boy Scout troop. It's a fund raiser they are trying. For about $35 a year they will come out and put up a flag where ever you want and then come back and take it down. They do it for all the big federal holidays. If you are interested drop me a line and I'll pass along the info.

I am liking what Amanda Booren is posting here, FB and GDNs and think we should take a look at her for a candidate also. FB says she has a masters degree and she is Director of Publications at San Jac. I notice she is a volunteer today for the Thanksgiving dinner.

I have only met her once but I see her at council meetings. Her posts are common sense, she has a job and people skills.

After the holidays I would like the pink party to narrow it down to candidates for the May election and candidates for the election after that. Dont need too many choices.

Adelia said...

Congratulations to Mark and Wendy Massey!!! Hope you guys have years of happiness here on the island.

Adelia said...

Someone eat a plate of thanksgiving dinner for me. I sure hate to miss such a great meal and I know the cooks that put this meal together are the best!!

SPorter said...

On the Facebook page it says:

"Clear Lake Shores Civic Club
We Are Amazing!

We served about 270 dinners today after volunteers spent hours and hours in preparation.

We collected $256.00 in cash for coats, a jacket, hats and gloves for kids at the local school"

That sounds great ... can anyone tell me how it compares to previous years? Thanx ...

I am reading comments from the Nov 10th blog and I am concerned….some of you are trying to be touchy feely and politically correct regarding our cops saying they are doing a great job and they will come out in the middle of the night to help us. Your right but any cop will do that so we can’t just close our eyes and not at least look at the facts regarding our current officers….three in particular. Here are some facts to think about….Jansen made a comment over a year ago big changes were coming to the pd how did she know that? Cooks wife, cook, Jansen and McMillan all started whining about Paul and Tina shortly after that comment and just after Arlene got elected and NS took control. Tami’s personal investigation started and the citizens except for the privileged NS citizens knew nothing about what was going on…the three stooges tried to fire Paul with an agenda item and that is the first most of us knew anything was going on..because of Vern stopping the ramrod agenda item and the rest of us putting pressure on this gang of hoodlums we were able to stop this outrageous crap. During the next few months Jansen and McMillan spent hours and hours of on duty and off duty time at bernies and Tamis…AB asks who cares how much time they spent there well I do and so should everyone else….now Tina quits Paul resigns the cops move up the ladder in seniority and have the balls to send Tami a thank you letter. The investigation is completed and concludes Paul and Tina did nothing illegal or anything that would call for either voluntary or involuntary dismissal….. now cook is hiding under his desk Jansen seems to be running the show and McMillan is practically super glued to her side…Jansen and McMillan go out of their way to show publicly and clearly whose side they are on and now I hear Bernie and Kathy were laughing and joking with Jansen and McMillan at bernies trial. Don’t know that for sure just heard it but don’t doubt it now the cops pull what seems to be a fake parking bust at Ronnie’s party. Did the cops plan this or are they just ignorant and can’t read our ordinances? Either way it is a problem…these three cops currently working for NS…sorry I mean CLS started this whole mess and it seems NS carried out their wishes. Many many cls residents are fearful of these three and I can see why… so what if they will come out in the middle of the night we can get other cops that will do the same thing that will not have these cops history and clear tight associations with a small group on the island that are nothing but trouble …lets see, Tami is under investigation by the DA has torn this island apart and helped waste tons of money, after two years or more since being ticketed and arrested Jackie is still in violation of numerous ordinances and I think still behind on his taxes, and Arlene seems clueless and looks to be doing nothing but playing a game of follow the leader….one of their biggest mentors is now on probation and facing 70 or so more charges.

PART TWO

You guys that think we have turned a corner need to wake up and smell the crap….jean (Paul’s friend), Steven dean and Bernie are still investigating Paul I would guess to try and find a reason to fire him before may so they can put another NS thug in the city admin position. Three of our cops helped start this whole thing and they need to be in the bug jar big time. Like anon mom said there is no reason for a woman to loose her kids or leave them unless there were serious issues. Why does she not have her kids it doesn’t matter on a personal level but as our cop I want to know why a court would award them to her husband or why she would leave them to come here and be “a hell of a lot of fun” as lacy told us… we don’t need a party girl .it could point to some stability issues with her that may affect her ability to be a stable cop. If you softies are offended get over it it is a fair question…. Does anybody know how to get those court records? I think there are many of us who feel uncomfortable with these officers considering what has gone on. In Texas you can be fired for almost anything and I think they have created enough turmoil and distrust to be terminated. I know everybody is probably too scared to stand up and do something about this…so am i. but we need to clean house…..if we get sued pay it and move on it will be worth it in the long run and I have also seen jansen and mcmillian standing under the police station for long periods of time while on duty talking and laughing we need some video of that. …… maybe if they were on patrol more often and not visiting their friends so much the island would not have lost all of those kayaks…..to those of you who think we have turned a corner you need a cold glass of water thrown in your face….Ns has now successfully removed the pieces of the puzzle that they didn’t like now they are going to start replacing those pieces with ones they do like…..it is only going to get worse…I don’t give a crap how nice they are being right now…any of you falling for their game are being played like a fiddle. .i wish I knew who gokb was I would love to hear his stories….. I have been here 12 years or so and I am not planning to go anywhere so …sorry Bettie….I am not signing my name for obvious reasons vern, al, Richard, tj auldt, Galveston county DA, somebody please help us………………………get jansens family court records and look into all three of these current cops who started this mess please

Anonymous said...

Man alive! The guy (or woman) above needs to be leading this city or be council person. If this drags out to May, we need to elect the one person who is brave enough to clean house at City Hall. That means doing the Donald Trump, "Your fired". Not everybody can fire people you know.

Did anyone notice Duhniese and McMil
at the last council meeting? When Tami said something about having a Sargeant at Arms, he went and stood behind her. Later he and Duhniece stood by the front door and as citizens would stand to complain she would write something on her clipboard (I assumed the citizens names and address.) She and McMil several times were whispering with the clipboard covering their faces so that no one could read their lips. Made me think about getting a security camera at home. If she cant be fired I would like to see her moved to day shift so we can keep a better eye on her. I would also like for them to not be on duty the nights of council meetings. Didn't we just hire two new top cops? Lets see more of them.

i noticed it at the cc meeting. it is f ing scarey i don't think these cops serve the community i think anon at 1104 freudian slip might have hit the nail right on the head do they work for NS? we have a problem vern what is going to be done about it?

Anonymous said...

yes duhniese and mcmil on dayshift then out of here asap

Anonymous said...

i don't know what it takes to fire a cop if your not part of NS but if vern can do it it should be don on a vote of no confidence or something.....the problem is council is the appellate process and they would just reverse the fireing for their pals....the fix is in gang we need to figure this out.....VERN WHAT DO WE DO

Anonymous said...

we need to wait untill we have a council that is impartial and will do what the majority wants and not what NS wants.....its our only hope

Well, I see NS and the cops are reading the blog and posting again at 1:08

I understand the cops read the blog and laugh about it.

Anonymous said...

I cant wait for at least one to get fired so they will roll over and spill the beans about how Tami and Jackie actually were introduced to Bill Young and plotted this conspiracy.

Young and Duhniece were hanging out at Jackie's Brick House, but I cant see Jackie who doesn't drink or Tami soccer mom hanging out there.

More unanswered questions.

i dont think 108 is the cops the post is saying to wait for a new council that won't void their fireing when acting as an appellet court and hopefully if the majority of the citizens want them gone then they will be gone am I right 108

can everyone see our island is being held hostage by three council members at least two cops and a few of their friends some of whom don't even live here?????????

why won't more citizens come to cc meetings and help fix this?

I am getting tired of these anonymous postings; kinda feels like some sort of subterfuge. Just put your name on it, and be an adult.

I personally am more curious about having the information than knowing who said it. Been some very interesting posts the last two days.

Some people think that having money is power but its having information that is power. The people who have secret information are the most powerful of all.

you are missing the point. If the cops are fired council is their avenue to appeal. The council we have now will over rule the fireing because it appears they are in this together if we wait for a new council that respects the majority then the appeal will not work for them. try to pay attention 347 and please don't critisize untill you understand how the system works did you even read the post at 142? you must be one of our problem children trying to throw us off or you just don't get it

many islanders are scared to sign their name while calling out the cops who started this mess.....iwould bet you are one of those in denial that we have a possible problem with the cops in question. if you agree there is a problem then post it and sign your name if you are pretending there is not a problem and have nothing but good things to say about the cops it is easy to sign your name. you need to put things in perspective and let the information flow we can all figure out what is bs and what is not most of us are pretty darn smart and sane unlike NS

I dont think I am missing the point.

I do understand the procedure that will automatically occur after Tuesday, and only voluntarily occurs now if an employee is fired.

I would still rather see them fired and be forced to go through the appeals process. This way it is in their file that they were fired, which reflects on their future opportunities to hold another city hostage through a coup.

Also during their appeal the council would be asking them direct questions about how this mess was cooked up and how they got involved, instead of having to hear it from an investigator that was researching Paul and not the PD.

It would also keep the 3 stooges busy so they dont venture into other things that we might not like, namely the rest of their agenda. One of them has leaked that they are not through.

If we fire cops based on rumors how are we better than what we are fighting. If you have good evidence against any of our officers I would be more than willing to join the fire them group. In the same way if they had had good evidence against Shelley I would have been on the side of cleaning up our department. Anyone can say anything if they don't back it up with their name or evidence. It is not that we are refusing to believe we have problems it is that we are refusing to fire people based on personal feelings and rumors. Send me valid evidence and I will put it on the blog with my name attached.

Adelia said...

I have been in total support of the "Pink" Party but now that I see you acting the same as the NS group I am longing for the Beige party. I have spoken to several people who may run that would be interested in the WHOLE island not just getting revenge or personal agendas. I got on this blog to fight that sort of thing and for it's original intention - to hear about the good events like our thanksgiving dinner. Lets not forget to be grateful for the two council persons that do act reasonably and look for more like them. As much as I love color GO BEIGE

Anonymous said...

Cheers Adelia.

Apparently it's ok to randomly call for firing someone if YOU don't like them. These idiots are doing exactly what Hillbilly Tami did. Acting as judge and jury and calling for "investigations" based on rumor and opinion.
People, Tami and Chicken Jack are the enemy. Don't forget that. Maybe we're all just tired of beating up on Tami and Jackie and since Bernie gave up (won) a long time ago we need somebody to fight back. Maybe it's getting too boring for you people.
Leave the police department alone.
We actually HAVE turned a corner. Nobody is fighting back. Tami has completed the Bernie/Kathy agenda item #1. All done.
You people are now creating your own issues. Look around. It's a bunch of villagers with pitchforks yelling and screaming to nobody. The monster is gone.
"well bygod if we can't have our chief back then we will just call a woman's parenting decisions into question!"
It's not only the police laughing at you spectacles.

three of our cops played a major role in getting rid of paul and alot of islanders don't trust them.....my name isn't signed but that doesn't make my statement a rumor, gossip or not true......it is a fact and no we havn't turned a corner NS has pleanty more planned i am betting....hell they are still investigating paul....get your head out of the sand and get out of denial....anon 657 you know several that want to run and you want a beige party!!!~!!!that is xactly what NS wants a bunch of divided voters watering down their votes while NS sticks together and gets their candidates in office.......holy crap are you blind.... everybody better quit worrying about who isnt signing their name and look at the elephant in the room

Adelia said...

Please note that 657 was not anon. I am well aware that our cops played a major role in this investigation although I have not proof of what was implied. If the investigation was handled properly in the first place as it was in the end it would not have mattered as the evidence presented cleared him. I think the review of his credit cards is a bunch of bunk - if there is a problem create a city ordinance against reimbursement. DO NOT go on a witch hunt. As I said before if you have anything other than rumor to support cops sleeping with other cops, negligent mothering, conspiracies, stealing, or any of the other accusations you throw out under anon please bring it. I am not afraid of the truth - just more angry witch hunts. Remember we don't really have partys here so calm down. I will vote for reasonable, competent people no matter who else supports them.

813 you are comfortable with jansen and mcmillian and i along with many others are not.....we both have a right to our opinions....time will tell who is right

Adelia said...

I am not comfortable or uncomfortable - I just cannot join the mob with burning torches to hang someone when I don't have good reason. I long for the days when our cops felt free to stop by the house and have thanksgiving dinner, when ALL of our cops knew my dogs names and the complete layout of my house in case I got in trouble. One of the bad things about this whole debacle is that we have put distance between us and our police force. Who knows our new officers well?? If we need further clean up of the force so be it but I long for the days when our force feels a part of this community and we with them. They should know we have their backs and we should know they have ours. Once again if there is anything you feel we need to bring to light other than "they is bad" let me know and I will put my name to it

REALLY!! Truly waisting my time here - fact or rumor
1.there is no reason for a woman to loose her kids or leave them unless there were serious issues. SO DADS CANT MAKE GOOD CUSTODIAL PARENTS?
2.it could point to some stability issues with her that may affect her ability to be a stable cop -ARE YOU A PHYCHIATRY MAJOR?
3.2 "cops" were under the police department talking it looked like. Yep Duhnise was one of the and Miliken was the other. Do our tax dollars pay for the plotting or protecting and serving (PLOTTING WHAT or maybe passover notes)
4.Last year Duhnise had a "working relationship" with Crook and Mrs. Crook didn't even care because she knew he was going to be promoted to Chief once they got Arline elected REALLY???
5.Now BMill is working on a "working relationship" with Duhnise so he has flipped sides against Paul. WHAT???
BLAH BLAH BLAH - Signing off now

The PD is stupid. If they were going to pull off the coup to get rid of the Shelleys like they did, then they should have been low key afterwards. The best reason to come to council tomorrow night is to observe the officers. It was blatant last time with him standing behind Tami, them whispering and covering their mouths, jotting down notes as people spoke. How stupid, but they know they are protected so they dont give a shit.

Anonymous said...

1 it didnt say dads couldnt make good custodial parents it is just strange she would say in a newspaper article all she ever wanted to be was a cop and a mother and has either bailed or or her rights were taken away on the most important of the two it seems that was the opinion of the poster not rumor or gossip

2 i don't know if the person who posted is a phyc major but it is common sense that loosing or leaving your kids when all you ever wanted to be is a mother could make you unstable. did she loose them because she was violent? we don't know but it would be good to know. that post also seemed like an opinion and the poster was looking for answers

3 not sure what to say but it was an observation not gossip or rumor

4 and 5 yep sounds like gossip i will give you those

i think there has been alot of good thought provoking posts made this weekend like 1103 said let the comments flow and the truth will sort itself out in time...you ned not get so pissed off just because you don't agree with a post everyone has a right to post period....chill out you are clearly a fan of the cops who started this....i am not....

some say leave the pd out of this...it is all about the pd and three of our officers were in on it from the beginning...that is an unsigned fact the three cops need watched and NS is not through they are only beginning i believe that is fact as well

OMG could anyone learn the correct spelling of "lose" vs "loose?!" (i.e. Denise loses her kids, not looses her kids, which has an entirely different meaning.) Normally poor spelling doesn't make or break an argument, but when not one of you can spell "lose" her kids correctly, it makes you look like losers. Not loosers. Sorry, if it was an occasional error, that would be one thing, but please learn the correct spelling and use of the two words before we must read them over and over and over again by so many people. And really, why should Denise's personal family life be up for debate on here in the first place? Stick to the real problems, please. We seem to be losing (not loosing) what little control we ever had.

Hello,

Wow, I took a break from this for the CLS Thanksgiving Weekend but it looks like some definitely did not. I see Rob even got his panties in a wad. It’s about time you spoke up again. This might surprise some of you and I am sure most of you don’t want to hear them but I have some opinions about what has been posted over the last few days.

First the comments about our Officers. I am willing to give my honest opinion and sign off on it. Since I am always around the Island Denise used to stop all of the time and chat with me. A few months before anyone including me knew anything was going on that all stopped and she seemed to avoid any conversation. It seemed strange but it was no big deal. Now she seems to really avoid me even though I have supported her so far. Again no big deal but does seem to show she is not real happy with outspoken folks like myself. As an Officer she has done a good job as far as I know but I strongly disagree with how Paul and Tina’s situation was handled, so on that issue I am not real happy with her. While I think Denise’s situation with her children is between her and her family on a personal level. I do hope it was checked into during the hireling process to make sure they were not taken from her for abuse or other issues that could point to emotional problems that would affect her work or be unacceptable for a person in her position of trust. I’m sure that is not the reason but I would hope the same would be checked into if she was a man so please, no one play the sexist card. On a professional level I hope it was either checked out or will be but it should be confidential and it is none of our business. We just need to trust that those in charge know what the situation is and are comfortable with it. If those in charge are satisfied so am I.

Officer McMillan seems to do a good job as well. To me he comes across gruff and sort of mean but I have been told that is just his way and you have to look past that. The problem I have with Officer McMillan is that on two occasions, once at a fender bender I had in front of my house (sorry about that Jan) and once at City Council he made comments to me about the investigation situation making it clear where he stood on the matter. I think making comments to citizens in those situations were both the wrong place and wrong time. I also do not agree with the way he handled the situation with Tina and Paul. As far as his work is concerned, so far so good as far as I can tell.

All this worrying about rumor, false allegations and hurt feelings in the Police Department.......Did any of them show any concern when Paul Shelley had to sit in silence for four months as a private investigation transpired into rumor and false allegations about him? And when its over, no apology from any of them, no calls to see if their feelings had been hurt. Now their only recourse to try to get their good name back is to sue. So, if the PD has to take some heat for a while, thats Ok. Its just karma coming back at em.

Anonymous said...

Yes theres more as usual be patient.

I think where these two have created problems for themselves is their blatant support of NS by spending hours at Tami and Bernie’s homes over the past few months, making out of place comments and a general public display of support for NS. While they have the right to do so at least while they are off duty, to many who have expressed concern I think they feel they are twisting the knife, pouring salt on the wound or rubbing our noses in it whatever you want to call it and I can see how this would create an atmosphere of fear, intimidation or a lack of confidence that our officers are here for all of us. I’m just guessing here but that is how their concerns come across to me and I agree they do put off what could be intimidating vibes at CC Meetings. I think Interim Chief Cook should have warned them against doing these things as it is bad for PR. I’m not sure they need to be fired but I think they definitely have some serious PR work to do if they want everyone’s respect, support and confidence. The ball is in your court Officers. You work for all of us and are here to protect and serve all of us. You need to show everyone you understand that. Beyond that, keep up the good work.

As far as NS goes, it is far from over, we have not turned a corner, their attempt to appear nice is part of their game in my opinion and much more is to come I think. They are still investigating Paul and they still want one of their own as City Admin. From what I understand. Now that Bernie is on probation and facing 70 or more future cases I hope he is out of the running if he was their choice. Everyone better be on their toes. NS has been at this for years and are not about to stop until the last shovel full is thrown on their political grave. At least with the blog they will remain exposed. Good job Allan.

Lastly, BEIGE PARTY? Get a grip and get back to basics. We need three folks to run and the elect them period. This is not brain surgery. The guy that was posting the Tribe stuff said the Pink Party couldn’t hold it together. Was he right?

Keep your eye on the ball,

Craig

Amen and Thank You 11:16. Please people, activate spellcheck. Your rants lose, not loose credibility when you cannot spell even the simplest of words and keep repeating the same thing over and over. Our police work for the city, not us. I think we all live here because we know that they watch out for us on a much more personal level than a larger city and because we, as CLS neighbors and residents watch out for each other and only want what is best for our little island. This gossip and paranoia really does nothing to help, although, it does make for an entertaining read while I do laundry. Let's remember we live hear because most of us enjoy a glass of wine on our decks, may only know each other by dogs or golf cart color, but still consider them a friend, don't need to lock our doors and watch out for all the kiddos on the island as if they were our own. I cherish that CLS and nothing at all about the stupid politics that will forever hold this place back from being perfect.

The past...Duhneise dreamed of the day Wm Young (one of her bed buddies)would be Chief and Bernie would be City Amin. (Thoughts that scare most of us normal, law-abiding folks.)

The present...Vern is working with the DA and a Criminal Investigator. Many changes are possible. Some council members may not hold on to their seats until May. Crook is a interim Chief. Residents need to continue to watch the bugs and ATTEND Council mtgs.

The future... A bright, fair new Chief and Council. Hope is just around the corner.

The BIG NS plan isn't panning out. They had a few victorys but they ain't winning the war. Evil won't win this one. The people of CLS won't let it happen.

I would agree that Tammy has really messed thing up to say the least. Tammy seems to be getting all of the blame for this mess. From reading all of the information on the complaint on this sight, it is obvious that she DID NOT ACT ALONE, she was the mouth piece for the few officers and ex officers that had an axe to grind. Most people seem to have lost sight that it was a select few officer and one officers wife that did all of this. What does it say about the int. chief when he knew all of this and did nothing to stop it. He allowed a small issue to become all of this. I would say his leadership ability is lacking if not all together missing. Guess he would sit back and do nothing since it was his wife who cried to Tammy to begin with I heard.

I've got a great idea. Since we OWN the police department, let's just all start breaking a few laws. I hear there's money in Crystal Meth. Let's all set up a little cooker outside our front doors and when the cops come a knockin' we'll just tell em that Stephanie is wrong. Cops aren't employed by the city, cops WORK FOR US! YAY!
You people should lay off the police department in this city. You got nothing but anger and poor decision making skills.
If I'm not mistaken, and I rarely am, I believe that Former Police Chief Paul Shelley supported the Interim Police Chief Cook for the position. Cook has been with us for a LONG time. I've never heard a complaint about him as an officer, a captain nor as a gentlemen. Y'all just makin s#it up.
At least with my meth idea you people will have a reason to be so illogical.

And this, my friend, is why you never want to give up the right to own a gun. Some scarey stuff.

Now will someone remind me again how our City is going to benefit tomorrow night by learning that we can never hire Tina back and that we cannot fire any policeman or city employee without a closed executive session of council?

Ok, I will try again......how about Jim Bragg as a candidate? Well educated, good communicator, understands budgets.

People will always complain no matter who is working on our island. Before it all started we complained about the cls officer who wrote a bunch of tickets then we complained about young then we complained about crook, i mean cook, then we complained about duhnease, now milliken? come on seems like if we aren't bitching about something then we aren't happy. We have had officers who didn't care who worked for who but only did the job they was hired to do. We had some that just drove around and did the parade wave all day and still no ones happy. SO sounds like the best solution is to hire galveston county to contract patrol and get rid of the city offices and pd. it will save a couple of hundred thousand any way. Sure you will have to sacrifice a timely response but its part of the deal and according to everyone else here whats clspd going to do when they show up at your house anyways? their useless right? i wish people would quit being so blind and stand back and watch the show from a distance its truly a comedy with a bit of drama. I enjoy my drink and the show daily so in a weird way thanks for the free entertainment.

Roselyn, I think that you would make an excellent candidate! I might even make a few council meetings just to see your smiling face.

how did 319 get out of his padded cell and get his hands on a computer

Roselyn said...

Thank you but I could not run for council. I would end up killing a few people and be sent to prison. I want to help get us back on track and narrow it down to a few reasonable people and then I want to go back to my ancestry.com, hunting for dead ancestors, and cleaning old cemeteries, and waiting for the real estate market to improve. I will leave government to the younger independant ones coming up the ranks. Wish the McIntyres felt the same.

the way I see it is that there are two different groups here with about four different ideas each and both of these groups have about two and half ideas that sorta overlap each other making for a very confusing situation when it comes to seperating out the actual facts of the whole matter and that leads to a bit of conflict for the people who don't have the time or the wit to spend to seperate out the two main issues. I belive that if that first group would spend the time to identify exactly what it is that the second group is so gal'derned fired up about and emphasize the positive points that they share together, remember the two and a half issues that overlap each other, then they could move on into positive territory and quit the fussin and fighting about the small stuff and identify those other issues that aren't so much overlappin and then work on those together based on the success of the previous two issues and let that be the foundation for some positivity. And I know that aint a word so don't go gettin all lose in your trousers about me creatin a word here since there wasn't nothin else I could think of at the time. That's an example right there - I just used a word that don't exist. Now let's say you're in group one and you think, 'hmmm.. that word don't exist but I can see how it could be useful to me in the future.' Now let's use the same example except this time you're going to be in group two. Now you think to yourself 'I know that's not a word and I'm not going to use it and I'm going to jump on that internet and anonomyslousy rant and rave about it since I'm not really mad at Bernie or Vern either one and these people are just buggin me and I'm bored at work'. Well, I gotta admit I gave myself a challange here, but I'm gonna try. Okay group one - will you consider that the word that we're talking about is not really a word and admit it to the people of group two under the condition that they will let you use it? Okay now group two, will you accept the admission of wrongdoing and then allow group one to use the new made-up word, as long as they don't use it in no official documents or quotes to GDN reporters, as long as you may live. Can't we all just say 'I do'
I think it says in the bible, and I'm para-phrasing - Verily I say unto you, get along you shit-heads or I will smite you with a plague or some locusts or somthin.
