Doesn't matter if I agree with you or you agree with me. It doesn't matter if you are right or I am right.

This is America!

hate to admit it, but i agree w/ ong on this stuff googs. if he was a practicing muslim, do you really think he would have gotten the democratic nomination to be president of the united states considering we are at war in iraq? folks are born or raised one thing, but often do not choose to continue those beliefs as adults. no need to cojole him ong, it is just a respectful difference of opinions i have without acting like a child and berating someone.
Ex-FA, Your point is well taken, and sure do hope your right; my problem with BHO' is his past, who he's associated with, his Muslim upbringing, his disregard for showing True Patriotism to our American beliefs, only time will tell, who know's what will happen, but the clock is ticking, Nov. 4, 2008 is not far down the road.. May the Best Candidate WIN..

totally agree and that is what makes this country great. i do dislike the folks who fail to respect another person's opinions and find some of the childlike taunting on this forum, and egoistic desire to be right downright pathetic and immature. a true adult can agree to disagree and respect each others differences.

cool googs. also, not all muslims are bad muslims. the wacko suicide bombers and insurgents are alot rarer than the peaceful, and law abiding who are just trying to muster through life. also, i would have no issue voting for a muslim, if i liked their political views. it is like saying i wouldn't vote for mitt romney just because he is a mormon, or joe lieberman because he is jewish.

<quoted text>Well Fetch-Her, looks like I stepped on some fragile Toes, now read my comments to FW, by the way (BTW), did you ever have the Mis-Pleasure of working for Frank Lorenzo, Gary Wilson, Doug Steenland, little Fat-Boy' Andy 'Dandy' Roberts, or the other NWA Management Thugs? I did, and it wasn't a very comfortable Experience, knowing the clock was ticking for your Demise!! And your DAL will keep on Going, and Going, and *** til King Richards gets his 1st Qtr. Report, and should that Report show RED, the Axe will shurly FALL.. and not everyone uses Drugs (weed), just because you do.. Is the world Flat, well from where I view the Pacific Ocean, from the Island of Oahu, looks pretty damn Flat to me ..
Don't worry Fletcher, you are just hearing the rantings of a disgruntled EX nwa employee. I have worked under this group and the world did not come to an end. It's just people like googs and fw, al-hole and others who feel they are better than everyone else than lost their azzes because everyone told them where to go when it came time that the AMFA committed suicide. Kinda like a cult don't you think, but not everyone drank the koolaid this time.

So what your saying is that only people who have your same opinion get respect? Give us a friggin break lady. How many times have you called me and others a scab when in fact you WORKED DURING the strike. Your Laughable! And you state you did not know much about the problems between the mechanic group and the other unions (mainly the IAM) on the property. So you don't have a clue about what happened other than what these idiots spew on the boards. Why do you think I even started posting against this "childness" as you call it.

Hey, if you all want respect then give it also! People had their reasons for keeping the job, you all wanted out. Ok, but if you are gonna spew, you can expect to get it back.

None of the malcontents have anything good to say about people whom currently work at NW having to endure much longer than you folks.

It's great, when you can't answer something, just hurl an insult or make a stupid comment like this. You are the one bitter and angry over this NWA stuff, not me.

If you all can sling mud, why do you get upset when someone calls you on it?

You are a Moron and an Idiot,and you make stupid comments and you are angry and bitter. You also need to go get the air let out of your head. I think your big mouth is compensating for something much much smaller. You get what you give.
