lies_1Yucca Valley, Ca.,- For some strange reason, I do not hate anyone. I learned early in life to separate the person from the deed.  While I may not like the “deed,” I do not “hate” the person and it is easier to forgive them, most of the time. My husband is the same way, after walking on this planet for 79 years, there is not one single person he hates.

I do have some difficulty in handling disappointment.  I am crushed by someone I look up to for their accomplishments who is our Mayor’s appointed Town Planning Commissioner, writing lies or untruths.

A recent letter to the Editor published in the Hi-Desert Star for all to read recently came down on opponents of Measure U… it read in part:

“Some of the opponents to Measure U resorted to name calling, conspiracy theories and calls for grand jury investigations. How petty! This childish pettiness has carried over to the upcoming election for Town Council.

(Name Redacted) has been personally vilified by certain blogs with name calling, out right lies and attacks on her family and marriage. Her only sin, as far as I can see, is that she supported Measure U.”

Now Miss Vickie, there have NEVER been any attacks on “her” family and marriage on Cactus Thorns Blog. Nope. Never. Nada. Zip. Nyet. Nein. Bu Shi. Nahiin. Nicht. Nunca.

Miss Vickie, you are still pretty ticked off that Measure U was defeated but I have never known you to tell bold face lies! Now I am feeling disappointment towards you because of your unsubstantiated accusations.

Miss Vickie do show the world where there have been such “attacks” hurled about (name redacted) “family and marriage” on this Blog?

Again, let me repeat…there have never been any attacks on family members or marriages on Cactus Thorns.

I’m so disappointed in your letter to the Editor Miss Vickie….what was your title? “Put down the poison pen?”

I’m waiting.

    Wow, again I just don’t know where to start, Margo do really think that the people who read the posts, that you post as news, don’t notice they always have the notation of “opinion” on them. That is just to cover you ass, because you spin just about everything you write on this blog to fit your agenda. That’s is as nice as I can be about the constant bullshit you write. You and the supposed “truth posse” lied to this community non stop for months about measure U, Where is the citizens initiative that you all told the people you were going to bring to the council? How about the lies you told the people, of corruption in the council,water board,town staff,and every one you disagree with? Want an example? You and Bob Leone went around telling people that Mayor Rowe forged his signature on the endorsement card that he signed when she ran for council. After hearing this many times in this community, I asked her to bring it to a meeting we set up with him. He flat out lied again, telling me that his law enforcement background would not allow him to lie. I told him at that time he had no integrity, and that I would send it to a hand writing analysis company to check it. Guess what? Turns out that he was lying, how does he expect to get re-elected when he cant tell the truth? I cant wait to go to the public foram on Jan 31st to pass out the copies of the certificate from the hand writing expert. How is it that you can write on here, accusing someone else of lying, when that is a habit you just cant seem to break?

      Tim… I seldom get between you and Margo in you spats but I got to draw a line here…. I can tell you categorically that to my knowledge no one has spoken of the anyone’s kids, uninvolved spouses or relatives on this website in regards to any political discussions…. And I have to tell you I find it insulting and totally without merit to suggest otherwise….

      I have been doing this for 12 years and can not remember when I or anyone I have let post here go off on a rant about or jeopardize the good names or health and safety of the unaffected and unaffiliated family members of those that have been subjects of political commentary. You better be able to prove that allegation cause thousands of our readers will tell you that never happens.

      To be accused of such a non starter like that is bullshit. I don’t know who this lady who wrote here diatribe in the Hi-Desert Star but she sure as hell never read Cactus thorns…. And that is the crux of her complaint, not that Margo or Bob Leone said things in or at other venues. She accused me and others here.

      Bobe Leone has never posted here… so how is that a stain on my site and me personally?

      She either proves her allegations or shuts her flipping pie hole….

      So far it seems that the only reasonable and sane person on your planning commission is you….. but I am starting to wonder about you now…. LOL

      Call me if you have questions

        Dan I did not read what she wrote in the paper. My point is that Margo is the last person that should be complaining about someone lying. she is as full of stuffing as a Christmas goose
