PostSubject: Advice to those running for Office   Fri Jun 20, 2008 7:47 pm

A MILLER and his son were driving their Ass to a neighboring fair
to sell him. They had not gone far when they met with a troop of
women collected round a well, talking and laughing. "Look
there," cried one of them, "did you ever see such fellows, to be
trudging along the road on foot when they might ride?' The old
man hearing this, quickly made his son mount the Ass, and
continued to walk along merrily by his side.

Presently they came up to a group of old men in earnest debate.
"There," said one of them, "it proves what I was a-saying.
What respect is shown to old age in these days? Do you see that idle lad riding while his
old father has to walk? Get down, you young scapegrace, and let
the old man rest his weary limbs." Upon this the old man made his
son dismount, and got up himself.

In this manner they had not
proceeded far when they met a company of women and children:
"Why, you lazy old fellow," cried several tongues at once, "how
can you ride upon the beast, while that poor little lad there can
hardly keep pace by the side of you?' The good-natured Miller
immediately took up his son behind him.

They had now almost
reached the town. "Pray, honest friend," said a citizen, "is
that Ass your own?' "Yes," replied the old man. "O, one would
not have thought so," said the other, "by the way you load him.
Why, you two fellows are better able to carry the poor beast than
he you." "Anything to please you," said the old man; "we can but
try." So, alighting with his son, they tied the legs of the Ass
together and with the help of a pole endeavored to carry him on
their shoulders over a bridge near the entrance to the town.
This entertaining sight brought the people in crowds to laugh at
it, till the Ass, not liking the noise nor the strange handling
that he was subject to, broke the cords that bound him and,
tumbling off the pole, fell into the river. Upon this, the old
man, vexed and ashamed, made the best of his way home again,
convinced that by endeavoring to please everybody he had pleased
nobody, and lost his Ass in the bargain.

They have the nerve to attack Betty like dogs and being the lady that she is, graciously answers their questions? Don't lower yourself Betty, they don't deserve it!

Why is Jack posting Whetstone's comments on T? I thought he supported Betty? Thanks Jack.

Why doesn't Whetstone post his own statement on T instead of getting Jack to?

Is it an elitest thing or what????????

Wasn't too impressed with Whetstone not only did he ignore the public choosing to post a long and self serving list of generalities but his venue for that big debut was about the dumbest move ever. Whose giving him advice? Dumber still.

I do support Betty. The reason for posting Whetstone's comments on Topix was simply that Whetstone's policies should be seen by as much of the electorate as possible, and he posted 'em on a board which is well-known for being exclusionary and a home for the entrenched "old guard".
Supporting Betty does not rule out an attempt to get a candidate's views as widely seen as possible.
What it DID DO (apparently) is get my registration at the Forum revoked; suddenly, today, my username and/or password are "invalid".
Where I erred is in my assumption that Whetstone's comments would not be viewable by all of us. For months, the Bisbee Forum was only viewable by registered members -- and I've been registered since the beginning of this version of the Forum. I did not know that Elliot made the Forum viewable by all (though you have to be registered to post), since I'd been automatically logged-in for all this time.
Since in all the time I'd been registered there, I'd only felt called upon to make about 15 posts (and you all know how unlikely that is), I'm not heartbroken -- and I did what I did with the purest of heart and the best of intentions. So there.

You're probably not banned it is probably just a glitch. Just check with Bill he can fix it for you.
