Fellow OSO Members

First I like to say Thanks to all the members that are looking out for my best interest. The person that started the original opening thread (HypaBaha Tommy) was respectful by sending me a PM, he said, if I were offended he would pull the thread down immediately. My reply to Tommy was, if I were offended you would have heard about it by now.
Further more I told him that it was his call to keep the thread up or take it down, I think the OSO board was getting a kick out of it and realized how stupid it was from the start.
I myself posted a couple of times and made a joke out of it.

I think the one that hit the nail on the head was; Bonnie Outlaw who posted;

ďI'd be willing to bet that years ago they probably did get upset. But at some point you've got to learn to laugh at it or it will probably eat you up. I suspect that's where they are.Ē

I have seen that particular website years back and thought it was a joke then, somebody shooting off their mount with no back up and not knowing what they are talking about.

You just have to look at it, on face value and laugh. We all know by now, that we donít live in a perfect world and canít control what some people will say especially on the Internet. We see it time and time again, even here on our board.

Once again thanks for watching my back OSO rules always.

Actually Free Republic dot com is pretty far right/libertarian. The post was from somewhere else and was a Bush basher trying to connect GHW Bush with drug running-this is old stuff, but out there. GHW was pals with Don and that is a fact, the rest is just snippets from different events and actions-mostly BS.

You are correct...thanks for pointing that out. I had mistaken it for another site.

2 years ago when I bought my "new" 1976 Cigarette Awesome I started doing research on the internet.Looking up Cigarette Boats & Don Aronow.
I was intrigued by the whole thing.
Living in the midwest I had no exposure to this whole Offshore thing & am only begining now.
Anyway, if you search Don Aronow on the internet,there is a wacko thing that comes up.
It's called "The unauthorized Biography of George Bush" it is the biggest Bush bashing thing I ever saw. It makes a connection to Don Aronow as to George Bush Senior "driving a gas guzzling,noisey Cigarette Boat",instead of a "nice non polluting quiet sail boat".
It lists Don as one of George's friends & portrays Don as making his money off of the Mafia in New Jersey and then smuggling drugs in FLA.
It also says that is why US Customs awarded the contract to build the Blue Thunder Cat's for them. It wasn't very complimentary on their performance either LOL!
Anyway it's out there & if you read more of it,it becomes more & more B.S.
