I don't see where "ex military" comes into play here.

Let me repeat(WE ARE AN AIRSTREAM CAMPING AND CARAVAN CLUB) no less, no more.
If you are not a member now and have no intention of rejoining, where does all of this "WE" business come from?

Just need some clarification here.

Does this mean that you DO see where "school administrators" comes into play?

bfred,
School Administrators? What does that have to do with anything? Did I miss an inside joke here? Maybe school administrators thought freedom of speech was a good idea and military people guarantee YOU have the right to an opinion and the ability to express it. Some of us dedicate our lives to make sure the next generation has the ability, education, desire and freedom to choose a better life and career. How about they ban retired crane operators?

Sounds like we have issues with authority figures. I sure do.

I say we exclude anyone with an i in their name. Tends to foster a sense of self importance.

chill people...

bfred claims to be BOTH former military and former school admin and former wb' ex-official type...

and has posted the same analysis in other silly wb' threads...

he feels this view is not only accurate, but that he is especially qualified to offer the analogy, given HIS background.

and as for the "we" part i think it's obvious that...

1. he was referencing the global WE as a/s owners....
2. there is a WHOLE LOT LESS we in the wb' each month...

i think it's a slow night here and it's sad folks are back in this quagmire thread....

BUT since we're here again...

I AGREE with fred,

but he left out the boy scout, home owners assos' , homophobic, church going, human zealots, involved at the top...

not that i'm a member of ANY of those groups...

what this sorryass club needs is about 5 rabbits at the TOP...

now only would we shuttle the book and streamline the entire club,

we would ALSO quickly reproduce and multiply, bringing in 100s of new long eared members in NO time...

just no military rabbits or school admin bunnies...

except for appointment to the sanitation committee

cheers

Time's up? Good! Does that mean I am NEVER required to discuss it... ever! Good! To engage Amanda in such discourse around the campfire 'til 3AM? She'd plow me into the ground! Please tell me I'm off the hook!

That's cool. However, I don't read every thread, much less every post and tend to take the literal interpretation, anyway. If it were a humorous or silly thread, I may have seen the humor. Suspension is not exactly humorous. Also, as "Airstream owners" "WE" do not have by-laws, an IBT nor an "AIRSTREAM CAMPING AND CARAVAN CLUB." Therefore, there is no other way to interpret that post.

I guess if I want to read something serious, I should search out some humorous threads or go to the FMCA Site/Forum....

You don't have to talk about ANYTHING if you don't want to. All you HAVE to do is bring your guitar and play.

As far as getting "off the hook," I don't know that anyone can nowadays for spouting off. I reckon you'll probably have to kiss some jackalope beehind first. I hear they can be pretty darned thin skinned though.

Oh, man! I'm all for the Jackalope!

Did I spout off? Sorry, just seeking clarification...

But, there is one rule (mine) that I will adhered to. I am NOT discussing club stuff around the campfire. "Hey, you. Got a problem? Take it INSIDE... inside your rig, that is!"

Nothing can dowse a campfire quicker...

I know my first reaction to hearing about the suspension of the region 1 president was a strong one!

Buck and Grace have been long standing members of the WBCCI. Why they even helped Save Wally making their no SOB motorhome statement clear. Who is Buck? Read it here http://savewally.org/what-about-./buck-grace.html

Unfortunately the attitudes of the IBT caused Buck to vote with his feet and not renew last year, leaving the Metro Detroit unit, my same former unit, and just when he thought it was safe to come back in the water-- POW--another issue guaranteed to sour folks again.

And if you think it is not enough of an issue to sour people just look back at the reaction of the current unit president of Metro Detroit.

I do not think I will be renewing my membership when it comes due...Sorry WBCCI, you lose.
Reading back further, Forest had mentioned the teaching and military credentials and background of some of the IBT in this thread and training in leadership. http://www.airforums.com/forums/show...&postcount=190
