WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE NO RIGHT? I WAS A PATRON OF THE SITE-I HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING WRONG. I WAS NOT TRYING TO CAUSE TROUBLE THERE.
I AM A CHRISTIAN- I WAS TRYING MY BEST TO GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE THERE. I WAS NOT TRYING TO CAUSE TROUBLE.
I AM TIRED OF RUNNING INTO PROBLEMS DEALING WITH PEOPLE.
I was put out of a union once that I carried for more than twenty good years... I worked hard to carry those who could not hardly carry themselves... They called me too company for that... If they are a slug they want everyone to be a slug... But; the rules are, that they can put you out for any reason they see fit... You can appeal, but it is your choice if you want to beg... For my part, I gave them cause by breaking my business agents back in front of a witness... Shame on me... They did not mess with my pension, so the joke is on them... As bad as they were, and they were often no better than ****, they were also the best organization I have ever been put out of, the most alive, and the most democratic, and the best people... But as one of my older friends said: I would get my kid into the ironworkers if I did not mind subjecting him to the assholes... Well; maybe I got along as well as I did, for as long as I did because I was just as much of an asshole as they were... But I don't want to be that guy any more... And if they put me out like a dog, then maybe a dog is what I am, and let's see the dog union put me out... You look at it... Dogs make better people than most people do... A dog will never lie to you, pretend to be your friend, and stab you in the back to get a better man off the field...Let the dead bury the dead... Let the living take care of the living... Do you see what I am saying... We are all guests on the internet... Try to be on your best behavior... Nobody cares that I am writing this in my jammies with bare feet and crusty eyes...They care that I make their lives better in some way and hopefully, recognize their common humanity... Remember what Anni Defranco said, and Be Nice...
