Does this mean I can open my mouth then....And last time I checked, not a single person has faulted Todd or Valinda on this, and only the misinformed beat up on Phelps. You need to realize that some people actually will not be able to afford this training/permit cost, as well as the other issues. Again, just like the other 15 threads of people posting stupid single liners telling other people how to think, you need to remember that telling people to shut their mouth when you're an adult just makes you sound like you don't have anything useful to say.
That is a good point. I have heard (and been a part of) beating up this fecal sandwich that is being served up, but who are these people that have beat up Todd or Valinda. The only thing that I would say to that end is that since I was able to sence the likelihood of a defeat like this or worse, I think that we could have been kept better informed on the progress or lack thereof. As we can see, they don't need our analyst to serve up a load of crap for us. We could have and should have been more open with each other about what the other side was trying to do and the likelihood that we could lose support. I suggest that we have known who the fence sitters were for a long time and who would fold under pressure. But that is just me and if we had known I don't know what we could have done about it, except this outcome would not have come as such a shock. I think that Phelps actually tried to get the word out as evidenced with his radio interview.
