Re: Obama-Care: This Is What It Will Be Like

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Look, let me put an end to this thread. Bill has a problem - many of us who know him personally and who have spoken with him by land line will confirm this. I am not at liberty to discuss Bill's issues, but I believe it is best not to respond to any of his e-mails. This simply adds fuel to his fire. As to the health care issue, I would assume from Bill's perspective if he lost his job and his insurance benefits (assuming that his wife is working for a firm that covers the family) he can be supported by his state if they support disability coverage like California, Illinois and Wisconsin does from my personal knowledge of family and friends who are physically disabled. This makes Bill dependent on the State for his health care which is no different than Medi-Cal in California and whatever welfare is called in other states. His hypocrisy negates any of his arguments. I'm sure this will fire up additional responses if not a phone call, but in the future it is best to ignore discussions on any topics outside the structural engineering profession - I learned a long time ago that while friends are made and lost on this list, it is often best to avoid discussions with those who you can respect and disagree with, but who are not inflamed by topics that historically set off those with strong arguments for one side or other than can be debated on an intelligent level even if there is no solution or the outcome is to accept your differences and not let it destroy the admiration and friendship you built on a personal / professional level.

This list should have a get-together.  I'd like to watch the fireworks in person.

There is such a thing as "professional clown," you know.

	But you said "Got C4?" That's more than the insult you've been getting

I know, you were joking, and that's why you are a clown.
	So, stop monkeying around and act like a professional, if you are one and you can handle it.

	I wish some of you would come out and criticize Bill Polhemus for the barrage of insults and lame comments he's been making, especially the latest one toward Moustafa Gouda even after appologizing for the first insult. If that's not an embarrassement to the list members, I don't know what is.

	Insult?
	
	Hey, I didn't call him "fool" or "clown" or "idiot" or anything like that.
	
	I mean, if you said something like that, it WOULD be insulting, wouldn't it?
