    Six over the "last comment you would make on the post"...

    Frankly, you seem to have had a hard on for me since you got here. Enjoy. If you want to defend the idiocy that is LA go right ahead. But your dumb azz implication that my post above is about LA is just ridiculous and not true.
    Gee, why would I (or anyone) think the comment was directed at LAFE? Could it be the gozillion times you've directed comments at him in the past? My implication may be wrong but it is NOT ridiculous. I bet others thought the same thing.

    I DO NOT have a hard on for you. Your attacks on me and my department far outweigh mine on you or your department. Actually, I've never attacked your department. I've also posted positive responses to posts of yours in the past.

    I'm not sure why you are so concerned with my rank or department. I prefer to be judged by all members of this forum on the contents of my posts. Members will either agree or disagree, respect my opinions or not. No pre-formed opinions based on rank and department.

    I do not defend idiocy by LAFE, or anyone else for that matter. I've posted several times in opposition to him.

    He chose to make it his problem. I hope I would have the courage to make it my problem too.

    So if I did my math correctly, you've been with 12 agencies total. Around my neck of the woods, we have a word for department hoppers: worthless.

    Does this apply only to this thread or to the whole board? If it applies to the board, I'll forget you ever existed.

    6 plus 2 plus 2 = 10.

    Plus my current gig = 11

    Now .....

    I was with my college fire department and my college rescue squad at the same time.

    I was with a suburban department outside of my home and ran with them when I was home from college and then for a short time after college.

    I was with a VFD and the town's rescue squad at the same time.

    And there were a couple of departments I was on with short-term as I moved around a couple of different places after college as well.

    And I am currently with my combo department and my VFD at the same time.

    You say you want to be judged by your content, without regard for your rank. But your username clearly includes the abbreviation for "captain".

    It appears to me you want to get credibility from an implied rank that you've never stated you have. You just want to call yourself captain, then not discuss whether you really are one or not.

    And I bet the guys that rescued the pregnant dog were bummed that there was a human rescued first. 'Cause, you know, otherwise THEY get the TV coverage.

    I've just posted that I DON'T want credibility (or lack of it) to come from a rank, implied or otherwise. Is it really necessary for you to know?

    Then why did you IMPLY a rank with your username?

    Is DC Gonzo really a DC, and if so do you really think his parents named him Gonzo?

    Is tree68 really a tree? Wouldn't he be a potential exposure problem?

    How about bones42? A skeleton maybe?

    slackjawedyokel may or may not be a yokel, but do you really believe he is slackjawed?

    How does snowball handle the heat? (assuming he's an actual snowball)

    Does anybody really think lafe is qualified to educate anyone on anything?

    And what exactly is a Chenzo?

    Okay. I will now think of you as notacaptnjak.

    As for your questions about the user names of others, I am quite sure that if their user names implied something about them and you asked them to clarify it, they would do so.

    I suspect Gonz would reveal the shocking news that Gonzo is a nickname, and would that he is, indeed, a deputy chief.

    If tree68 is neither deciduous nor evergreen, I'm sure an admission would be forthcoming.

    Bones42 is (or at least was) probably a slim guy, likely attached to a number 42 of something. I bet he'd tell you if you asked him.

    slackjawedyokel likely hoarked his name from the Simpsons character, Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel. But the yokel himself would undoubtedly set us straight.

    snowball would willingly shed light on why he wants to be called that.

    As for Bob, well, sometimes nicknames are misnomers.

    I started out fires service life as FireFighter Zero. I was then demoted to Probie Zero. Later I became Chief Zero, and have come full circle to FireFighter Zero. Probably should have gone with FireFighter Zero on this forum instead of my actual last name, oh well. No one takes me seriously anyhow!

    Why would I think you have had a hard on for me since you got here? Golly I post a simple comment: "Wow! Service before self. What a concept." And you turn it into another opportunity to come after me. Oh, you are right, your implication isn't ridiculous, YOU ARE. If I have something to say to LA directly I am by no means shy and I blast his azz freely and openly. So, nice try, but no points will be awarded.

    I DO NOT have a hard on for you. Your attacks on me and my department far outweigh mine on you or your department. Actually, I've never attacked your department. I've also posted positive responses to posts of yours in the past.

    Almost impossible to insult your FD when I don't know who it is.

    And I have posted postive responses to some of yours too. So why the need to start another bru ha ha here when clearly nothing I said was to you or about you?


    I'm not sure why you are so concerned with my rank or department. I prefer to be judged by all members of this forum on the contents of my posts. Members will either agree or disagree, respect my opinions or not. No pre-formed opinions based on rank and department.

    You have at different times here said you are andyou aren't a captain. If it isn't important then why not just clear it up here and now. I am a newly retired career firefighter/EMT with a suburb of Milwaukee FD, I am also training officer for 2 rural POC FDs and a Lieutenant on one of them. That should aleviate all doubt of my rank. Ho about you come clean on yours now?

    I do not defend idiocy by LAFE, or anyone else for that matter. I've posted several times in opposition to him.

    You sure jumped up like his big brother here to defend him.
    Frankly, this whole thing is a waste of time and why you started it is a mystery.

    ANOTHER opportunity to come after you? When was the first? In the past, I've only taken shots at you AFTER being attacked by you. This was proven to be true in another thread both by myself and other members. As far as my most recent jab, I think it would be easy for anyone to mistakenly believe you were baiting lafe. You have stated that is not the case. You also pointed out how you've gone after him directly numerous times. A very valid point, so I will take you at your word. I hereby withdraw the comment and apologize. (I'm pretty sure you don't care but it IS the right thing to do.)

    Not knowing my department has not stopped you from attacking it's operations or terminology.

    I never stated that I was or was not a Captain. To clear it up, I am not a Captain.
