Me thinks he thinks he wants to pick a fight with me.
That's the second time he's made a run at me.
If he keeps it up I'll become like really insecure and all.
Now I feel sad ......waah
I think even "HE" knows that we know the only thing he runs is his mouth.

I got no problem with young blood talking trash they know nothing about except when they talking when they should be listening and asking.

Passion without even the wisdom enough to stop and listen though?
Indelicate it might have been but it had to be said.

Now why would I want to debate some one that knows it all?
Now why would I want to debate some one that knows so much even questions are met with hubris?
Why would I want to debate some one that gets all upset about even friendly advice?
Why would I want to debate some one that has been every where throughout time, knows all the important people and broaches nothing but bows before them and by extension himself?

Nah thanks, but I'll pass on that lovely opportunity.
Before I leave I've just thought of a bit advise I think might be apt, it's from a famous composer made after he tired of the audience interruptions of applause after various passages in his new piece. (I think the story goes but you can look it up if you like)
Stopping in the middle of the composition he turned to the audience and said, "the important part is listening to the silence between the notes".

Due to not being American. I did not realize that there were 4 billion that he was indicating that could played into paying into this Black EMS. I am saying that many of the people living outside the the USA do in fact have EMS and 911 facilities within their own country and just might not be willing to put pennies into a system that from all intents and purposes be set up for the USA. I see no reason for other countries to pay into something like this or why they would even want to.

His title says it all Katrina Harvey Flint Alabama. Think we will fund our own and the USA can do whatever they want but leave us out of it.

Long time no hear bientempo. I don't think Ndugu was referring to a global as much as a national Black EMS system but I would have to reread all his post to clarify that. Either way the DR wouldn't need to participate because your stand alone EMS system is top notch. I've had many a conversation with EMT's and Medics who worked in the DR EMS system before they immigrated to NYC and worked in NYC-EMS, various private services and community volunteers corps. I really want to address Ndugu's take on a national Black EMS system but due to time constraints I'll have to post the results of my research later tonight. I do have time to familiarize those not in the profession with the long struggle and eventual successes of progressive EMS services in The Caribbean Basin, one of which the DR is one of the top notch organizations today considering budgetary constraints.
