Try being a 48 state truck driver and dealing with the winter conditions, 6 weeks ago I had to take my 10 hr break in east Wyoming and the Temp at 5am the next morning was -24 without the windchill.

Didn't like that eh? I've been in southeastern Wyoming at -52 without the windchill. People don't believe me. But it does get that cold out there.

Bob Flotte is an honorable man. Maybe you shouldn't libel him like that. I don't think you would fare well in a lawsuit.

If it was possible to sue successfully off of internet chatter there is much better ammunition here on topix than a simple statement alleging theft.

So in other words. Stop picking fights Barb.

Yes it is, my armed wing-nut friend. I'm not picking fights, I'm defending an honorable man that I personally know; not that I can expect you to know the difference.

Bob Flotte has been a upstanding businessman and radioman in Alamogordo for as long as I remember. His son Matt is a high ranking law enforcement officer in a nearby community.
To call him a thief on a public forum is libel.

Chill-out girl, no one takes anything on this space too seriously. I hope. Don't you have fun at all anywhere?

Oh stop it. Flotte is scam artist from day 1. I do recall the fine for running the station from Betty Dare and the protracted foreclosure of the station across from Alameda Park where he cheated owners for 2 years while simply jacking them around in court. It is amazing that someone so hot on nmcourts.gov could actually make the claim you just did. I suppose it matters which side one is on, eh?

Running the station from Betty Dare?? I think you better watch watch you're smoking Mr. Morris. Your dealer gave you some bad stuff.

Additionally, he's a perpetually happy person who cares about the people in the community and the community as a whole. I've always been impressed by him.

People should check NMCourts for Robert Flotte, Robert J. Flotte and Bob Flotte before making bold claims about all he has done for the community. Seems like he has taken advantage of a lot of businesses. Then again maybe he is the modern day Robin Hood..lol, right!
