Okay. A couple small clarifications. I love swear words. They are my
favorite thing in the English language. I was merely teasing you about
using them. I don't know how long you've been paying strict attention to my
posts, but I've been known to use a few pretty words myself. Especially
that crap Dan was pulling about the feeling of blues being due to the words.
But anyway, I'm rather surprised to hear you go off so dramatically about
this colony just based on our left-handed discussions. The stuff that you
are talking about is very upsetting and yes, it's the most horrible thing
ever. I'm not disputing that at all. I'm not sure what you mean about Bill
and I having trouble with people who are different. I don't consider being
left-handed different. Yeah, I've got green eyes. I'm soooo different.
Please. I'm sorry about whatever traumatic events have caused you to get so
darned upset about your left hand, but you don't know me or what kinds of
disabilities I actually have, so please don't tell me what I know and what I
don't. I can't believe you're taking so much offense to all this. Being
left-handed does not make you special enough to go on with this tirade.
There are lots of people on this list with much bigger problems than always
having the wrong kind of scissors, yet you don't hear them complaining. :)

Have a Nice Day!!
Wendy :)

Hey Christy, would you post this to the list for me????? Many thanks, Cindy.
Dear Wendy, Apparently, you and Bill have a SERIOUS problem dealing with
people that are different. First of all, I only use "cuss" words when I'm
really really, ticked off about something as Bill's comments did. Second,
from what I've read of your comments not only to me, but also to Christy
tells me that when people complain about "left-handed conductors" and such,
it just tells me how small-minded they really are. As for your comment to
Christy about "left-handed people'' complaining about things, and we should
"shut up", I will tell you that we "lefties" have had to put up your
"right-handed smart-mouths" for way too long. However, the comment about
"left-handed" people in the colony, did interest me, but I don't think that
they went that far. I CAN tell you that when they ran out of "handicapped"
people to sterilize----they started on the drunks, juvenile delinquents,
single mothers, etc. Just this week my local paper ran a story on a WWII
vet, who was a "former resident" of the colony. He was the victim of child
abuse and kept running away from home. The state "didn't see it" that way
and sent him to the colony. He was sterilized within a month, in fact, the
morning of his surgery----apparently they either did not give him enough
"gas" or they didn't allow enough time for it to start working------, but he
ACTUALLY felt them "cut him open and remove his family jewels". He told the
reporter quote" I was one of the lucky ones, many of the people operated on
did not survive". This man went on to serve in the military-----where he was
wounded and given "the Purple Heart" So, ya'll need to do some serious
thinking about your comments, too. Oh, just one more thing, the reason I
can't reply to the list-----the list apparently does not co-operate with
people who are on AOL. If someone on the list, who's also on AOL can tell me
what to do in order to use the list and not depend on others like Christy to
post my replies, it would sincerely appreciated. My e-mail is BFLAT REBEL @
AOL. COM
