Self Enlightenment

Bob,

Based on your “Naysayer” postings through the years towards the IBT/EC7 and rants of how they were running/destroying the club, to now using that same “Naysayer” venom against those who you once rallied with in your post since being placed on the re-write committee, it’s good to see you are able to at least see the “Naysayer” in yourself and finally admit it.

I guess the only difference is you have gone from standing outside of the tent peeing in, to inside the tent peeing out. I will say though, this time around you have only been able to rally one other person to your cause.

Congratulation on the self enlightenment.

Are you saying that the other 4 members of the Committee do not share Bob's commitment and he was able to completely rewrite a New Constitution all by himself? I suspect the others will feel slighted by your comments.

No Howie, I'm talking about you.

The ones you speak of have always been postive people from what I know of them.

Quote:
Naysayers One who frequently engages in excessive complaining, negative banter and/or a genuinely poor and downbeat attitude.

Naysayers are distinguished by their tendency to consistently view the glass half empty, make frequent one-way trips to negative town, and constantly emphasize the worst of a situation.

They have the capacity to rant and whine for hours on end about the most insignificant inconveniences.

They tend to travel solo, but have the keen ability to spread their pessimistic attitude to a group of unsuspecting bystanders and encourage others to employ their mindset.

Naysayers tend to blend in with those around them rather well, granted they have learned over the years to adapt to their surroundings.

However, when the opportunity arises, their true nature will be exposed and they will stop at nothing to exclude others or bring a general sense of negativity to any situation.

Seem applicable to anyone?


The importance of diversity of thought and expression must be upheld, and should be, both revered and encouraged.
Within any group there must exist more than a solitary scorekeeper and interpreter of events. Each must examine for themselves to make their own determination as to sincerity or display, credibility and substance.

Some see trouble in the club. Some see " troublemakers." The danger when one paints opposing viewpoints as negative in nature is that it devalues the rational side of politics. If political movements are not only seen as wrong but seen as a web of malevolent forces it encourages a hostile climate that looks to expose enemies and vilify those that don't agree with the status quo, rather than to engage in argument. What is troublesome is the unusual self-proclaimed capacity to discredit virtually every point and direction different from one's own. It confirms the worst charactures of a gauche and inept type of leadership. We need to maintain open lines of communication regardless of origin or opinion.

For all members of the WBCCI to come together to forward the club and examine the proposed new constitution for approval or rejection and or propose changes a tolerance and respectful attitude and a cooperative spirit of good team membership should be adopted rather than personal grandstanding.

Who blends in?

Mona Lisa Vito: [Vinny looks at her funny] What?
Vinny Gambini: Nothing. You stick out like a sore thumb around here.
Mona Lisa Vito: Me? What about you?
Vinny Gambini: I fit in better than you. At least I’m wearing cowboy boots.
Mona Lisa Vito: Oh yeah, you blend.


YouTube - Yeah, you blend.

I was worried about the Kool-Aid and what might be in it....... (OK, maybe not productive, but humorous to me at least).

Elevator music

You can sort of think of the good-natured back stabbing on this thread the last few days as similar the elevator music they play between sessions at the IBT.

Sort of entertainment until the grand unveiling of the proposed new, improved constitution currently forecast for April Fool's Day. . .

so does this mean I have to wade though a month of stories about "I"s being crossed and "T"s dotted before the truth comes out?
Does this mean we will all continue to wonder what is going on?

I am going back to reading old threads. It is rather humorous to read old postings on the WBCCI. I know my own attitude has changed tact 180 degrees in these historical threads. Funny, I thought I was the only one, but many have changed their focus in the past few years. The biggest IBT detractor is now their spokesman and one of the biggest cheer leaders is now a desenter.
ODDLY, the only person who has remained consistent: WheelInterested. She still holds the same position she did from the start. No flip floppin with that lady for sure!!!!

Just to let everyone know the New Constitution was sent to HQ.

It will shortly go to region presidents then unit presidents.

At this point I will try and answer your questions.

If as example the MOHO-sob issue
