masturbation 23.Mar.2006 20:19

I've seen Bergel throw his DSL router around and abuse the guy who was to install it -
why? because as always, he didn't listen to reason and instead of listening to an expert
(other than himself) he bought the wrong kind on ebay and then launched into a fit of violence when it didn't work.
this bergel guy is the very same animal who shouted down Michael Carrigan in front of the Peaceworks
board (carefully selected yes men whose job is to massage his ego)
and everyone there was supposed to just forget and forgive - fogive Gergel.

He does know how to run multiple non-profits so he can make himself a nice tax free living
at the expense of those who donate to "Peaceworks" -
which is ultimately a way of neutralizing the Peace movement in Oregon.

nothing but masturbation under a false flag.
