Some people are just such nasty

I am talking about a self-proclaimed "liberal" peace activist. I am in this group planning this thing. I can't say out in the open what it is yet, and those of you that know me in real life might know what this is about, and I am going to ask you not to go spread this around. This is my rant; let me have it. Well so anyway, I am in this group planning this thing. And this is a self-proclaimed peace activist. And it's a woman. So there, I eliminated half of the possible choices out there. First, she tried to mess up the event by unilaterally shoving down everyone's throat a speaker that most people had never heard of, nor was that speaker supposed to be the focus in anyway. Anyway, a lot of opposition rose, and she pulled back. Now she is up with another nice idea: let's have for $100 tickets an unnumbered number of people get in for free at her discretion. So I said no. We could let people in for free if they deserve it, but everyone planning the event ought to be able to vote on who can do so. She started lots of bs lecture about generosity. I in effect told her to cut the crap and get to the bottom line. She thought I was bringing up a power struggle, she probably doesn't realize that what she is trying to do is called a power-grab. Well we will see what happens with that. I am not going to let her get away with letting people in for free at her, and only her, discretion; I will tell you that. I will make a promise: I will release on this blog the entire blow by blow of everything that has happened and that will happen once this event is successfully carried out. I might have to hold back certain names and so on; but we'll have the full story here. The names will be changed not so much because of their privacy (since these are all common names, you can find 30 of them in any city of 3000); that will be to protect my identity. Of course those who already know me and will be reading will know, and I am asking you to protect my privacy.

Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
