Above the fray

Over the last few years, I have spoken with many fellow members of AR. That good old cell phone, if not good for anything else, sure is good for having a nice chat with someone. A few days ago, I gave Alice a call. I wanted to let her know that I thought she was doing a great job of getting the information about ACORN out to AR members. I also just wanted to see what she was about.

The day that I called her was the same day that I ended up writing my Coffee blog. I had seen the "other site" first hand that morning, and was disturbed to say the least. I saw that one of the people who was called some pretty derisive names was Alice.

We spoke for about 20-30 minutes. I never mentioned the other site nor the nasty names. In fact we never spoke about it or anyone else on AR. We spoke about politics, our families, the future of our country, the weather, and football. Of course, I did ask about real estate in her area.

To quote my old Aunt: Alice is good people. She knew about the other site and never said a thing to me (she stated that she knew when she posted to my blog). She never lowered herself to name calling or asking me to pat her on the back for taking that heat. At no time did she blast her AR "enemies". Quite a difference.

I left that conversation knowing full well that Alice is a professional in everything that she does. Alice, it was nice speaking with you.

Just like 9-11 was our generations Pearl Harbor, it is pretty evident that this ACORN blowup is looking more and more like our Watergate. It took two college age kids and a video camera to get the thing exposed to the general public. Congress… more

Those of us on AR who have strong political opinions like to voice them. And once we do, the folks who disagree with us, like to tell us where to get off. It is all a part of having an opinion. I believe A, you believe B, and the argument is on… more
