Re: “The Jack Jones, Marcel Williams execution thread

SalineRepublican you're bringing up an execution from 27 years ago just so you can bash a Clinton/liberals?! That's your argument? You're grasping at straws. Not all of us are 50+ yrs old and had an opinion on an execution from almost 3 decades ago.

Re: “Surgeon general ready to fight medical marijuana

DOIGOTTA and anyone else voting for medical mj-please vote for the cannibas initiative. It will say "cannibas" as opposed to "marijuana". This initiative will allow people with mj prescriptions to grow a limited amount; this is important because it will help people who couldn't otherwise afford this medicine. The marijuana act-the other one on the ballot-is all for profit. It's about lining pharma's pocketbooks, whereas the cannibas initiative is to help those in need. If you have questions contact Arkansans for Compassionate Care.

Re: “UAMS/St. Vincent merger: A lesson from Komen; Kumpuris says St. Vincent would manage University Hospital

Attendance is only poor at HRA meetings when you attend because residents literally turn around and leave when they see you there.

Mistruth #1 Your lack of knowledge has caused you to slander Mr. Ward. Check your facts before you speak-he does not do business with CHI; he does business with a hospital not involved in the merger. Mistruth #2 That you did not make derogatory comments about gays. There are witnesses who will attest to the fact that you did and none but you who would disagree with that fact. Mistruth #3 Your implication that I called you names. I specifically said I was not calling you names, that I was using adjectives to describe your behavior. Big difference. Mistruth #4 That you were not disruptive at Monday's meeting. You raised your voice at 2 of the 3 candidates....which made you NOT get your point across, by the way. You then proceeded to argue about a matter we already resolved (graffiti) that was actually in accordance with your opinion yet you still went on an angry diatribe. You also spoke out of turn-or rather, shouted out of turn-at the end of the meeting. I now wash my hands of this conversation. I attempted to help you communicate effectively with the HRA board and residents but you seem uninterested.

Joanne can you please tell me what names I have called you, other than your given name? I specifically said name calling was not my intent-that I used adjectives to relay to you why people only hear your anger and condescending delivery and not your message. My point is not to argue with what you think about the merger-I have in no way done that. What I am trying do is help you get your message heard because everyone deserves that. I am telling you that the reason your words are not effective at HRA meetings is because you alienate people with your poor attitude and rudeness. I am pretty surprised you are rebuffing my attempt to help you get your message heard because it seems you feel strongly about getting your point across. Residents have told me they don't attend board meetings because of you. Sad because maybe if you were more eloquent in the way you speak more people would hear you and join your cause. But I digress....

Re: “UAMS/St. Vincent merger: A lesson from Komen; Kumpuris says St. Vincent would manage University Hospital

You say no one else was present when you made the offensive remarks about gays-yet that can't be true because the people from LRUF were there when it was said because it was about one of their names. So your comment about "no one else" being there is an untruth. If you perceived what I did as name calling then I most certainly would like to let you know that was not my intent. I used adjectives to describe the way you handle matters at HRA meetings. It's a travesty when someone's message isn't heard because they don't care to try to word it in a way that makes people open to listening. If you are truly passionate about your beliefs (and I believe you are) and want others to see your point of view as opposed to the lack of tact with which you deliver your messages, I suggest you calm down and speak in a way that is more effective. I am not looking to bash your ideas. If I were to ever get on board with what you think I would at this point find an representative of those views who can convey the message without bastardizing it with anger. I really feel that if you concentrated more on relaying your message and less about the fact that what you think is right in your eyes that you would have more success at getting people on board with you.

Re: “UAMS/St. Vincent merger: A lesson from Komen; Kumpuris says St. Vincent would manage University Hospital

I believe that Ms. Coleman is basing her "fact" that the HRA President invited the candidates to speak because they thanked him for allowing them to speak. Any good political candidate would thank the moderator of the meeting for allotting them time. If you go back and listen to your tape you will not hear one of them say "Thank you for inviting us to speak, Mr. Ward." Ms. Coleman-I think that people would take your points of view more serious if you talked TO people as opposed to speaking AT them. If you really want to make a difference and have your opinion heard, yelling, harassing, and being condescending is not the way to do it. All you have done up to this point is alienate people. Within the first 10 minutes of the first HRA meeting I attended I was put off by your rudeness and abrasiveness. I feel that at times you may have good points and feedback, but your delivery dilutes your actual message. The manner in which you speak about what you believe has just as much an impact as the words you use. I hope that in the future communication is more fortuitous and less off putting and offensive.
