Where to start? This morning I was surprised to find in my PM box on FB the following message: “You have a new hate page!” So I checked the link that was enclosed and low and behold, there was my face, and my name… and the names of everyone on my friendslist on Facebook, all pasted together in one big jumble of fictitious artwork! Bright red lettering across the artwork exclaiming “The Alice Mackenzie Verhagen wall of shame. Alice Verhagen is using all these people to spread her lies.” This page funnily is named “Clearing up the Confusion.”
So I sat here, and first I laughed at it all. Then I got intrigued as to what was posted there. So I read, and read some more and it soon became clear to me that nothing on the page was in any way factual, but all derived from hear say. The page was set up not to clear up confusion, but to create more! It’s sole purpose of existence was to point fingers wrongly and to divert attention away from the issue’s that have been haunting Lisa & Jeanie Phillips. That issue being, people asking questions about Rambo, the funding, the numbers, the transparency, the lies and the lack of forthcoming or answering of questions. It is already well known that Lisa has built her entire empire on the suffering of Rambo and his many unnecessary and preventable surgeries. She even went as far as to set up funding requests, asking for no less than $30.000,= to pay her living expenses, put food on her table, pay her utilities and all under the guise of helping retired working dogs… No one can refute the funding request since she even made a YouTube video of the whole charade. This is not me, grabbing at fictional straws people! THIS IS FACT!! The video is posted on this page under another article about Sgt Rambo N577 so feel free to check it out!
Back to the point tho… The Confusion page… It was not set up to clear the confusion, it was set up as a clear and blatant attack on my character. Funny thing tho? I welcome it! I do not hide from it at all. I invite everyone to visit the page and take a good look at it and to make up their own minds. I even Private Messaged Lisa about it to inform her that her facts are in fact incorrect. But I do not think it will stop her from trying to present fantasy as fact, it hasn’t stopped her in the past when she created the first hate group against me a month ago, and then added all my friends to that group, who then came to me to inform me of said group. I will be posting a screenshot of that group as well for verification. See what happened there? I stated FACT!! And I then proceeded to back up that fact with PROOF! I also replied to posts on that page, and screenshotted these replies, which of course I will be posting as proof of the fact.
…. where am I going with all this? Am I upset or angry over the page? Nope. Am I angry over the fiction posted there? Nope. So why on gods green earth am I writing this article about it then? Well…. Let me explain that one clearly. This page keeps telling people I am the owner and creator of the Rambo Retired and Suffering page. I am not the owner, I am not the creator. I never was, and never will be. You can claim it a million times, it does not make it true. But maybe if you yell it loud enough people will think it is true, right? Am I an admin on that page? Yes, I was made an admin of that page. Am I the only admin on that page? Nope, plenty of other admins on that page and I mean PLENTY!!!! So who are the other admins? They are just run of the mill people, who share the same worries and cares about Rambo as that I do. I will not name them. I refuse to name them. I respect their wishes and their privacy in this. I will say this tho? I have come to know each and every admin on that page as respectable and upstanding people. I will vouch for each and every one of them. That doesn’t mean their names should be out there tho. Does the message become less important because of the bringer of that message? No, it does not!
So what does this all tell you? About me? About Lisa & Jeanie Phillips? About Rambo and his continued suffering? It tells you that I have nothing to hide, that Lisa & Jeanie Phillips will do anything and everything they can to divert people away from the truth, even using lies to do so, and that Rambo will continue to suffer for it…. I stand by my words, I always have, and I always will. I do not change my opinions to suit others and I do not bend to the use of words like “Bully, Bullying.” To use words like that, to get out from under people’s scrutiny and questions is just plain sad! If I call bully hard enough, people will feel sorry for me! Yeah, right! Or they just might see the truth. The truth that some are so desperately trying to hide from everyone.
Now…. I have one last thing to address before ending this article. There is a screenshot out there, with my name on it, that says “ I’ve hit my dogs and I don’t hide it.” This is the only thing that seems to work for them it seems, or so they think. It is a PM on FB to a person in the UK and it is one small line from a very large conversation. I want to explain it tho, so that people know where I stand on this. I trained dogs in KNPV, this means I do not work or handle the easiest dogs in the world. They are temperamental at best, down right assholes at worst. Does this mean I beat and hit them at the drop of a dime? Nope. It just means I do not take shit from the dogs I work with. The conversation this snip it came from was about dogs biting owners and the appropriate response to this happening. Well, most of you know I am not a softhearted trainer or a soft handed one. I will physically correct a dog if the need is there. Does this mean I beat them with sticks or abuse them 24/7/365? Nope, it just means that if you sink your teeth in my body I will kick your ass in payment. Action begets reaction. It is that simple. I do not wait a dog out, I do not ask, I do not create grey areas for the dog to explore. You act, I react, lesson learned, we move on. So take from that what you will. This is what I do and who I am. I love my dogs, play with them, keep them warm and healthy and fed but I demand full compliance in return.
Back to the page that has my face all over it! Take a look at it, agree with it, like it, hate it… It makes no difference to me at all. The page in itself is a great way to see how Lisa & Jeanie Phillips operate and conduct business. It says nothing about me that is fact but it does in turn tell a great deal about the people whom have created the page, and what their reasons might have been to do so. Check out the screenshots I have included, make up your own minds….
