Just like clockwork..LDA want us to "act"...

Post by Fin24 » Sat 28 Feb 2009 4:23

here is the latest--"lets roll"????? give me a break

I and everyone Ive asked havent even SEEN the wording of the darn bill yet--have you??

HOW do we know if itlll be good or bad or ???

HOW do we know if we even want to support it or if itll be biting our arses in the end??

BUT we all are told to DO whatever Ms Pat says for our own good

who else is getting damn tired of this??

WHY the heck arent LDA and others actually going to the NatCapLyme conference in DC this March 2009 and even if they "think" they already know stuff--going anyway to LEARN the ins and outs of U.S. bill passing and also joining the rest of the Lyme community sharing ideas and allowing silent voices to be HEARD???

all we get is " do this do that" and yet we are also told " you dont need to know the details, just Do this"

Im tired of all this and for once want INPUT or at the very least information--all of it--before I decide to jump on board another misbegotten idea train heading into hell town


" whisper whisper, sshhhh" and then " DO this Do that"

NO WONDER the groups are splintering and no wonder so many are disllusioned and fed up
me too

btw we dont even know if this "action" is well timed or ill planned---there are apparently good and bad times to be bugging our congressmen about pending bills--who can tell me if this is the usual knee jerk response or in fact a good thing to do??

Not sure who you are... But apparently you don't know me very well at all. At least I do not hide behind a fake name.

Dale,
I'm so sorry to read you're suffering from Lyme Neuroborreliosis and your mind isn't working well anymore.

You're lucky you found LNE. If you use the search engine, you'll find all kinds of good information about neuro lyme and lyme in general. Good luck with your search!
