Thousands of Ex-Gays Descend on Washington, DC

July was, apparently, "Ex-Gay Pride Month," and the ex-gays scheduled a giant demonstration in Washington, DC, for the day before yesterday. RightWingWatch has the story, and I am stealing borrowing heavily from their post on the topic.

Sandy Rios of American Family Radio interviewed the organizer of Ex-Gay Pride Month, Christopher Doyle. As she said, "Tomorrow in the nation's capital, thousands of ex-gays are descending to be heard." You could hear the italics in her speaking voice. Literally.


If you listened to that, you heard him say that "Washington DC is the only jurisdiction in the United States that ex-gays are a protected class against discrimination." What is he talking about? Explained here: PFOX Loses, Claims Great Victory. That was 2009, and they're still saying this.

As RWW put it:
Well, despite the expectation that “thousands of ex-gays” would partake in Ex-Gay Pride Month, fewer than ten people showed up for the big event.

Besides Doyle, ex-gay activists Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Gays and Ex-Gays (PFOX), Richard Cohen of the International Healing Foundation and Douglas McIntyre of Homosexuals Anonymous also participated.

 

 

Wow, look at the crowds! As far as the eye can see.

The "ex-gay community" would do best not to hold public events. It just makes it too easy. It is much better for them to cry that they have been bullied into hiding by homosexuals.

"When I was chief psychologist for Kaiser Permanente from 1959 to 1979, San Francisco's gay and lesbian population burgeoned. I personally saw more than 2,000 patients with same-sex attraction, and my staff saw thousands more. We worked hard to develop approaches to meeting the needs of these patients.

They generally sought therapy for one of three reasons: to come to grips with their gay identity, to resolve relationship issues or to change their sexual orientation. We would always inform patients in the third group that change was not easily accomplished. With clinical experience, my staff and I learned to assess the probability of change in those who wished to become heterosexual.

Of the roughly 18,000 gay and lesbian patients whom we treated over 25 years through Kaiser, I believe that most had satisfactory outcomes. The majority were able to attain a happier and more stable homosexual lifestyle. Of the patients I oversaw who sought to change their orientation, hundreds were successful."

Nicholas Cummings was president of the American Psychological Association (1979-80).

Oh yeah!

These pictures show the thousands of ex-gay folks who descended on Washington DC exist only in the press releases of "reparative therapists," AKA quacks, who prey on LGBT kids of uptight intolerant conservative parents.

The two guys in plaid shirts look like they are arranging to meet for drinks later.

Where are all of CRW's "ex-gay" advocates?? Don. Dwyer? Ruth Jacobs? Peter. Sprigg? Robert Knight? Tres Kerns?

Why didn't they come support the thousands of ex-gays, AKA heterosexuals, they are so concerned about, who recently descended on Washington?

The CRC's keynote speaker is a danger to the citizens of Maryland so a judge locked him up for a month.

A judge for the District Court in Annapolis sentenced Del. Don Dwyer (R–Pasadena) to 30 days in jail for driving a boat under the influence of alcohol, which led to a crash last August, reports The Capital-Gazette.

On Monday, Dwyer announced his plan to plead guilty, but noted his subsequent involvement in an alcohol treatment program.

The crash occurred on Aug. 22 between two boats on the Magothy River–one of which Dwyer was operating– and injured several people, including children. Dwyer himself suffered injuries to his foot and neck.

In addition to jail time, Dwyer will pay a $1,000 fine and cooperate under one year of supervised probation, reports The Capital-Gazette.

You're right, "never" was a hyperbolic word choice.

Nevertheless, what are the "ex-gay" people afraid of? I saw no mention of counter-protesters, or angry mobs (unlike, for example, Ukraine).

Westboro Baptists does all sorts of radically offensive protests in this country, with police protection, but without assaults.

My guess is someone said something on-line, which allows whats-their-names to claim threats. It's noteworthy that they didn't share those with the public. I suspect the real reason they cancelled was that virtually no one signed up to come, and they were embarassed.

They were even going to have a contest for an anthem for the "ex-gay" pride movement. Very funny, if it weren't so pathetic.

I, like Theresa, have worked all my life; contrastingly, I don't complain on-line about my taxes, nor do I post items on my website about other people's personal concerns.

As I mentioned on the other thread, Fairfax Schools blocks the PFOX website. They categorize it as a "sex" site.

Bad anonymous refers to Nicholas Cummings who offers his unsubstantiated opinion that some people can change their sexual orientation. Of course Cummings has no research to back up his claim and he represents a very small minority of people in the mental health field who have this well refuted belief. Every major mental and physical health organization opposes "reparitive" "therapy" as it is ineffective and potentially harmful. Here are the positions of a few of those organizations:


The American Academy of Pediatrics in its policy statement on Homosexuality and Adolescence states: Confusion about sexual orientation is not unusual during adolescence. Counseling may be helpful for young people who are uncertain about their sexual orientation or for those who are uncertain about how to express their sexuality and might profit from an attempt at clarification through a counseling or psychotherapeutic initiative. Therapy directed specifically at changing sexual orientation is contraindicated, since it can provoke guilt and anxiety while having little or no potential for achieving changes in orientation.6

The American Counseling Association has adopted a resolution that states that it: opposes portrayals of lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth and adults as mentally ill due to their sexual orientation; and supports the dissemination of accurate information about sexual orientation, mental health, and appropriate interventions in order to counteract bias that is based on ignorance or unfounded beliefs about same-gender sexual orientation.7 Further, at its 1999 World Conference, ACA adopted a position opposing the promotion of "reparative therapy" as a "cure" for individuals who are homosexual.8

The American Psychiatric Association in its position statement on Psychiatric Treatment and Sexual Orientation states: The potential risks of "reparative therapy" are great, including depression, anxiety and self-destructive behavior, since therapist alignment with societal prejudices against homosexuality may reinforce self-hatred already experienced by the patient. Many patients who have undergone "reparative therapy" relate that they were inaccurately told that homosexuals are lonely, unhappy individuals who never achieve acceptance or satisfaction. The possibility that the person might achieve happiness and satisfying interpersonal relationships as a gay man or lesbian is not presented, nor are alternative approaches to dealing with the effects of societal stigmatization discussed.9

The American Psychological Association recently undertook a study of the peer-reviewed literature in the area of sexual orientation change efforts (SOCE) and concluded that, "given the limited amount of methodically sound research, claims that recent SOCE is effective are not supported. Two issues with SOCE claims are that conversion therapists falsely assume that homosexuality is a mental disorder and that their research focuses almost exclusively on gay men and rarely includes lesbian. In its Resolution on Appropriate Therapeutic Responses to Sexual Orientation, which is also endorsed by the National Association of School
Psychologists, states: That the American Psychological Association opposes portrayals of lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth and adults as mentally ill due to their sexual orientation and supports the dissemination of accurate information about sexual orientation, and mental health, and appropriate interventions in order to counteract bias that is based in ignorance or unfounded beliefs about sexual orientation.10

The National Association of Social Workers in its Policy Statement on Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Issues: endorses policies in both the public and private sectors that ensure nondiscrimination; that are sensitive to the health and mental health needs of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people; and that promote an understanding of lesbian, gay, and bisexual cultures. Social stigmatization of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people is widespread and is a primary motivating factor in leading some people to seek sexual orientation changes.11 Sexual orientation conversion therapies assume that homosexual orientation is both pathological and freely chosen. No data demonstrate that reparative or conversion therapies are effective, and in fact they may be harmful.12 NASW believes social workers have the responsibility to clients to explain the prevailing knowledge concerning sexual orientation and the lack of data reporting positive outcomes with reparative therapy. NASW discourages social workers from providing treatments designed to change sexual orientation or from referring practitioners or programs that claim to do so.13

As these statements make clear, health and mental health professional organizations do not support efforts to change people's sexual orientation through "reparative" "therapy" and have raised serious concerns about its potential to do harm.

And of course bad anonymous has to continue lying about me because he knows he's the most lazy and immoral person on this blog and is the one who actually hasn't worked in decades but fraudulently collects a paycheck for pretending he does.

It has not been "decades" since I worked, I don't collect a paycheck from the government, I wasn't on welfare for "decades", I couldn't work for health reasons, I've paid hundreds of thousands in taxes, the government didn't pay for my sex reassignment surgery (I did) and neither Theresa nor bad anonymous has ever contributed a fraction of a penny to support me.

Everything I said about Theresa is true, its she who's lied repeatedly about me and poor people and who attacks me without provocation every chance she gets. Her and bad anonymous tell lies about me and then repeat each other's lies about me as though someone else typing it makes it okay for them to repeat it. They are the most dishonest and selfish posters on the internet.

you did say at one point you hadn't worked for decades and collected welfare and couldn't handle a workplace

further, ou've now denied it twice but you didn't do so during discussions when it came up for a long time

which is true, I have no way of knowing

but the more undeniable fact is you have added "bad" every time you have addressed me for years and you launched unprovoked attacks on every aspect of Theresa's personal life for years before she responded in any way

let's face it: you can dish it out but you can't take it

You lie. I NEVER said I hadn't worked for decades. I NEVER said anything about Theresa's personal life until she attacked me first. She has regularly started unprovoked attacks on me and I have just defended myself. You fantasize about the worst you can think of people and then you tell yourself its okay to pretend that's the truth and you heard it from them. You ARE A SADISTIC LIAR.

I did collect welfare for a period of time and I couldn't handle a workplace BECAISE OF HEALTH ISSUES. I never once denied I had accurately referred to you as a bad person. Its nice to know it bothers you so much - the truth hurts. If you don't want me to refer to you as bad anonymous then STOP BEING A BAD PERSON!

You are a pathological liar. I fully support you having equal rights and the ability to do whatever you want as long as you aren't hurting others. You on the other hand are the nastiest person on this blog by far, seeking to deny innocent people equal rights, referring to them as perverts, deviants, peodophiles, mentally ill, insane, residents of "the loony bin", destroyers of society and so on. After repeatedly lying and saying you don't support criminal penalties for gayness on one post you slipped up and admitted you condone the treatment of gays in Uganda that involves prison time for gayness. I'll be HAPPY to post that if you chose to lie here again and deny you said it.

You are totally devoid of ethics and consideration for innocent people. You selfishly demand that others live their lives to please you and you hypocritically call a homemaker lazy when you don't work anymore than she does and unlike her you fraudulently collect a paycheck for work you only pretend to do.

Bad anonymous advocates for imprisoning innocent gays and lesbians:

He offers
unqualified praise for Peter Sprigg
who seeks to criminalize gayness and deport gays:

I said "Bad anonymous left out one situtation where the Uganda law called for the death penalty - if the person was a repeat "offender".
That meant if you had sex with more than one same sex partner, or more than once with the same partner they proposed putting you to death."

Bad anonymous responded: "yes, Robert said that too I didn't leave it out on purpose, I didn't know about it. Of course, penalties should increase with repeated offenses but the death penalty would be wrong".

Bad anonymous later decides that even the death penalty is okay for gays:

"in the U.S., you can be executed for doing nothing in Iran, you have to commit a serious crime, like homosexuality"


And this sadist wants to claim I'm the nasty one on this blog? PUHHH-LEEEZE. I don't seek to have bigots like him imprisoned or executed, I support equal rights for him because I uphold my principles even for worthless pieces of trash like him.

as a matter of fact, few stop to remember that the Bible doesn't say that only homosexuals are sinful but all are sinful

so, why does homosexuality receive such focus?

I think if you'll go through all the instances where Jesus was confronted with sexual sin, you'll see that he didn't condone it but was quick to forgive it and less harsh as compared to his reaction to legalistic and hypocritical sins of pride

Let that be a lesson to you kiddos. This is the kind of embarrassing fiasco you can expect to happen when you believe all of your own propaganda. Sort of like WMD, or Romney’s “inevitable” win.

We’ve seen enough of the “ex-gay movement” now to know that they only stay ex-gay temporarily. It may take a few years, or even a couple of decades, but eventually they realize their problem is with their religion, not their sexuality. They then modify their religion accordingly, and go back to being gay.

If you want to talk about ex-gay rights, lets do that. Ex-gays are allowed to get married in every state of the union. Ex-straights are only allowed to get married in a quarter of them. (And we all know your canned comeback to that one, so make it good this time, or go talk to an empty chair.)

Anonymous, you clearly don't know many queer people.

Many people are coming out at younger ages currently, because being lgbt is more acceptable, and, in part, I think, because people have more access to information via the internet.

Nevertheless, for many people it takes decades. I know many people who didn't come out until their 40's, even one man who came out to himself at the age of 74.

Much of our world (and country) teaches homophobia, and even queer kids learn it. It can take a long time to deal with that.

I think for some people, perhaps, the ex-gay movement is a half-way house, letting them declare openly gay attractions, then eventually learning to accept them.

But for many people, it's an emotional cul-de-sac, built on half-truths and self-deceipt.

I was always struck by how many people in ex-gay ministries and groups had mysterious intestinal problems. I think it kind of ties people up in knots.

Just my thoughts. You can go ahead and call me crazy or stupid now, if you'd like (try to be creative, though; it makes it more interesting).

"The president of the now-defunct “ex-gay” organization, Exodus International, has been married to a woman for nearly 16 years. But he rejects labeling himself straight, bisexual, gay, or even “ex-gay,” noting that “while my life has changed dramatically, my same-sex attraction hasn’t.” In an interview in which he once again apologized for the damage he admits his group did to many people, Alan Chambers, who for 12 years led the 37-year-old group which promised to "cure" homosexuality, stopped short of saying someone shouldn’t try to control or deny sexual desires for the sake of religious convictions, while rejecting the therapeutic aspects of so-called “reparative therapy,” especially for minors.

“There’s no better way to do it than an apology for the people who were hurt,” Chambers said in an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress, a little over a month after his public apology and the stunning announcement that the group would shut down its "ex-gay" program. “Exodus should have just stayed as a support system for people who were looking for an alternative to gay life. I think the therapeutic aspect of it, not to mention the short stint we had in the political world on this, really did a disservice.”

Chambers said he believed the therapies do damage to people and that minors should not be put through them even as adults should still have the choice.

“What I believe is that when it comes to promising or assuring someone, or causing someone to expect that they’re going to completely eradicate a set of feelings or temptations or desires, I think that sets someone up for tremendous damage, which can cause them shame and guilt,” he said. “I certainly believe we should never be offering [conversion therapy] for minors. For adults, they can decide based on all the facts presented.”

Regarding his own life, and his sexual orientation, Chambers rejected what he called “labels.”

“As far as my life goes, I am married,” he said. “I am happily married. There’s not been one day in the course of our nearly 16 years of being married that I’ve been tempted to be unfaithful to my wife. I would say I have an orientation towards her. I do have same-sex attractions. But to say I have same-sex attractions would be the same as saying I was a married man with opposite-sex attractions. I am attracted to my wife in every single way that I as a married man need to be attracted to my wife, and our life is amazing. Am I a gay man? Some people would say you’re gay simply because you have these attractions. Some people would say you’re straight because I’m married. Some people say I’m ex-gay because I’m not leading a gay life.”"

How does Peter Sprigg think PFOX promotes tolerance for gays? Per Sprigg's performance on Chris Matthew's show:

"Sprigg: I think that the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas which overturned the sodomy laws in this country was wrongly decided. I think there would be a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior.

Matthews: So we should outlaw gay behavior?

Sprigg: Yes.

Matthews: Okay thank you much Peter Sprigg. We know your position. It's a clear one. Thank you.


Ah yes, calling for the criminalization of homosexual behavior -- what a clear way to display PFOX's "tolerance for gays."

no need to worry about gays at the Russian Olympics

Mr. Tough Guy will take care of it all

if they try to arrest any gays, Obama will mercilessly issue a statement about how disappointed he is

that'll scare the hell outta 'em!!

"BURBANK, Calif. -- President Barack Obama said Tuesday that he has "no patience" for countries, like Russia, that intimidate and harm individuals based on their sexual orientation.

Obama criticized a new Russian law cracking down on homosexual advocacy during an interview with NBC's "The Tonight Show.", saying he has "no patience for countries that try to treat gays and lesbians and transgendered persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them."

Russia has said it will enforce the law when it hosts the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Obama continued, "One of the things I think is very important for me to speak out on is making sure that people are treated fairly and justly because that's what we stand for, and I believe that that's a precept that's not unique to America. That's just something that should apply everywhere."

Obama also said he was "disappointed" that Russia granted temporary asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, defying Obama administration demands that the former government contractor be sent back to the U.S. to face espionage charges.

In his first comments about Snowden since Russia's decision last week, Obama said the move reflected the "underlying challenges" he faces in dealing with Moscow.

"There have been times where they slip back into Cold War thinking and a Cold War mentality," Obama said."

"SOCHI: WINTER OF HATE

International Olympic Committee (IOC): Relocate the 2014 Winter Games to Vancouver

In June Russian President, Vladimir Putin made it a crime to “promote homosexuality or non-traditional relationships” in Russia, effectively criminalising homosexuality. This has been met with a global outcry.

Next year, Russia is due to hold the winter Olympic Games. Thousands of people around the world, including me, think this must not be allowed to happen. The Olympics is about excellence, tolerance and respect - to hold the winter Games in Russia with in the current political climate of hate toward LGBTQ people is not compatible with those values.

It is not fair to ask athletes who have trained so hard to carry the burden of asking them to boycott next year's event. I am calling directly on the International Olympic Committee to move the games from Russia to Vancouver, Canada.

Vancouver was the last host of the winter games, so the facilities are ready to go. As a previous host it also knows how to project manage the events. If this isn’t possible then they could have the events in different countries.

The fight for freedom for LGBTQ people has come a long way in recent times - but this new law in Russia is a terrible and retrograde step. The world has a duty to come together and show Russia that we will not stand by while they do this to their own citizens and visitors. Moving the 2014 Winter Olympics will show them that what they are doing is wrong."

No they weren't. Retired people don't work so by your logic its bad to retire because then no one would be working and we'd all starve to death. By your logic its bad to save all your money because if everyone did that the economy would collapse. By your logic its bad to be a woman because if everyone was a woman the human race would die out. Your entire supposition is just stupid.

Bad anonymous said "for example, it's bad to sit home and make no contribution to society".

And yet you go to work and do nothing and make no contribution to society because you spend all day surfing the internet instead of performing the duties you're paid to do. Hypocrite.

False. Its in the best interests of society to treat all its members equally or else no one has the security that they'll be treated justly. Its in the best interests of society to lift up those individuals who are oppressed because this makes them happier and thus more productive which benefits all of society.

By your "logic" society can single out any individual or minority group and treat them badly because it wouldn't harm the greater good (the majority) - an obviously evil and destructive philosphy.

Bad anonymous said "[the russians] criminalize the promotion of homosexuality, not the conduct gay athletes who go and keep their sexual preferences to themselves will be fine".

This comming from the guy who promoted the imprisonment of people who have same sex sex and implied that it was ethical to execute gays. But remember, bad anonymous and the russians don’t hate gay people and they aren’t bigots. They just want to ruin their lives and put them in prison, that’s all.

Bad anonymous said "stop calling people names because if everyone did it...can't you see? what a crazy, mixed-up, no-fun world it would be".

LOL! That's a good one coming from you who appeared several years ago and without provocation started calling innocent people perverts, insane, diseased, gangrenous, pedophiles, sick, disturbed, and so on and has done so every since.

Congratulations, you must have set some sort of world record for hypocrisy. That's bad anonymous allright - "Wahhh, don't call me names, only I'm allowed to call people names because its a bad thing to call people names and no one should do it except me.".

Don H. Dwyer Jr., Maryland GOP Lawmaker, Pleads Guilty To Drunken Boating In Watercraft Called 'The Legislator'

Del. Don H. Dwyer Jr. again pleaded guilty Tuesday to operating a boat while drunk during a crash last year that left seven people injured, including himself.

Dwyer, a Pasadena Republican, entered the plea in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court three months after he admitted to the same charge in county District Court. He decided to appeal to the higher court after a judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail, a $1,000 fine and a year of supervised probation.

A new sentencing hearing is set for Oct. 25.

The case was prosecuted by the Howard County state's attorney's office because Dwyer is an elected official in Anne Arundel. Retired Judge Emory A. Plitt Jr. of Harford County will determine the sentence.

Wayne Kirwan, a spokesman for the Howard state's attorney, said prosecutors will oppose probation before judgment but will make no recommendation on jail time. Kirwan said the judge plans to examine documentation of Dwyer's alcohol rehabilitation and statements from crash victims.

David W. Fischer, Dwyer's attorney, said his client is not contesting the fine or probation but hopes to be spared jail time.

Dwyer was charged after a collision Aug. 22 between his 27-foot power boat -- named The Legislator -- and another vessel on the Magothy River. His blood-alcohol level was measured at almost three times the legal limit. Three children were among those hospitalized in the crash.

At his first trial in May, Dwyer apologized for his actions that day.

First elected to the House in 2003, Dwyer has said he plans to seek a fourth term next year.

Outside the Russian embassy in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm residents decided to protest Russia's crackdown on gay rights with a little rainbow street art

Russia’s draconian crackdown on gay rights has made the Russian embassy in Stockholm, Sweden the target of a series of pro-LGBT rights demonstrations in recent weeks. This weekend, protestors literally left their mark on the place by painting the crosswalk outside the embassy in brilliant rainbow colors.

“We have no case file on it but it will probably be classified as vandalism or a violation of traffic regulations,” a spokesman for Stockholm police told Dagens Nyheter, a Swedish daily newspaper.

He added that the police are not responsible for repainting the crosswalk, so hopefully the colors will stick around for a while.

Yes, you started attacking me before I attacked you, dear. I started getting really, really furious with you when you indicated that you had not worked for 20 years or so, you were attacking me because you thought you were entitled to more of the money I earn when you have never worked.

that is the essence of craziness, sweetheart, just the essence.

how dare you predicate ANY argument about tax code when you have never tried to be a productive member of society ?

Digestive Problems “Refusal to embrace situations occurring in life. Difficulty in using experiences of live to gain knowledge of self. Thinking life is difficult.”

I’ve had horrible gas pains in extremely stressful situations, not knowing the reason why. I finally figured out after reading this health book and interpreting some dreams.

To be honest, I am not particular to finding truth in books, but I have found truth in these, and after a lifetime of canvassing this subject : )

Theresa, I do many, though not all of those things also.

It's worth pointing out that most of your list are the result of owning a large, expensive property, and having investment properties. They are side effects of wealth, and I'm not sure if they will arouse sympathy in people who don't have those things.

Do you resent what you do for your children? I doubt it, I just think you're looking for sympathy. I do a lot for my students, and don't resent it, though I complain about it.

The difference, of course, is that I can stop whenever I want, and parenthood is a lifetime commitment. Good for your for making that commitment. Your childeren will return all that work later in your life.

Yes sometimes I do resent the children... I have teenagers, who doesn't get furious with them ? They are teenagers !

And you try to instill a work ethic in them and keep them away from bad influences ...

and it is exhausting...

the reason I went into this is because Priya seems to think - and another anonymous - that I didn't work for my money. And Priya hasn't worked and yet somehow seems to feel that all of us that do work hard should pay more in taxes so that Priya can spend more time playing on the internet....

It's ridiculous. People that work hard and try hard in school and don't flunk out generally end up with more money than folks that don't.

I am sure you see this with your students as well...

But Priya seems to think that other's work should pay for Priya.

I am becoming more and more a libertarian in my old age.....

if you don't work, and you are capable of working, but you choose instead to rely on the work of others to support you, well you SHOULD starve.

If my husband and I live to 85 (the mean age) we will get back from ss exactly what we put in... NO interest. Most will get back far more.

I am already subsidizing the Priyas of the world to an enormous extent....and the behavior is simply intolerable. Priya not only thinks I somehow lucked into the money (when I choose to work my entire life) but Priya thinks that Priya is entitled to the fruits of my labors.

Why does Priya believe this ?

I don't know, but I have just about had it with this attitude.

You don't work and you can work, the govt should help you out for a little bit, but then you should starve... and have to rely on the CHARITY of others. And there SHOULD BE SHAME associated with this, NOT ENTITLEMENT.

Theresa, I never said I hadn't worked for 20 years or so. You made that up - you lied. I never said I was entitled to any of the money you earned, you made that up - you lied yet again. You've never paid so much as a fraction of a penny to support me and yet you whine incessantly as though I've been given half your income.

It doesn't matter what your IQ is (and no doubt you're lying about that as well) when you show up here drunk half the time and post correspondingly stupid comments.

You are a pathological liar. You lie often and as easily as you breath.

Why would I answer any more of your questions when you refuse to answer mine? Life is a two way street but not for Theresa, she thinks people are obligated to answer all her idiotic questions but she has no obligation to respond in kind. You can go F yourself B.

You've benefitted grossly disproportionately from the society that you live in. You didn't get there on your own and you owe something back to the society that enabled you to be filthy rich. It is absolutely shameful that you begrudge society's poorest so little which you don't miss at all in return for all you've received and then have to tell outrageous lies about people on welfare like how they receive over $50,000 a year and eat lobster and feed steak to their dogs when the truth is the average welfare recipient is a family of 3 getting $7000 per year, can't afford a pet and often lives on nothing but spaghetti and peanut butter.

You whine idiotically about the cost of welfare to the nation but tragically defend the grossly bloated and far larger defense budget which is a much more expensive sort of welfare that causes destruction to the environment. Politicians as idiotic as you pass laws to build useless M1 tanks when there are fields of them sitting unused in the states already and even the military asked them not to build anymore but morons like Theresa insist in throwing 20 times as much on an a grossly overcapable military rather than helping starving people they pass laws to keep down.

My husband values me and says I made his house a home. He decides whether or not I am a homemaker, not you and its TFB for you if you don't like it.

You obviously have a perverted obsession with me. You need to go to rehab and get some mental health counseling. You're an addict, and you're mentally ill.

Theresa is a prime example of what recent research has shown:

Rich people are four times more likely to lie, cheat, or steal than poor people.

And when it comes to charity, households earning over $100,000 (Theresa makes over $200,000) donate only 2.7% of their income, whereas those making under $25,000 give away 4.2%.

30 different studies conducted at the University of California at Berkeley have demonstrated that rich people exhibit unethical decision-making tendencies, ranging from being more likely to run you down with your car while driving to lying during negotiations, even cheating in a simple game of chance, just to win a $50 prize.

Upper income participants were more likely to break laws while driving, take valued goods from others, endorse unethical behavior, such as cheating at work and they were four times more likely to cheat in order to win a prize. The studies were conducted using thousands of participants from across the United States. They also demonstrated less empathy, ruder behavior and became more demanding as simulated wealth and power increased.

The results indicate what many people have sensed all along, that the rich feel more “entitled” than others, believing that they’ve earned success, even when it’s been given to them on a silver platter.

The cream of society may rise to the top, but so might the scum.

It has not been "20 years or so" sincce I worked.

Lie #2:

I NEVER said I thought I was entitled to any of Theresa's money and she has never paid a fraction of a penny to support me.

Lie #3:

She attacked me first. As soon as I mentioned I knew it was a hard life on welfare she launched into a tirade against me and began falsely asserting she had been and still was contributing taxes that went to supporting me. Prior to that she had regularly attacked LGBT people as predators and destroyers of society.

Typical rich B - grotesquely undeserved sense of entitlement which includes believing she's entitled to lie about poor people with impunity.

The advice I give my students when they turn 18, is to, even as they want to be more independent and insist upon respect as adults, to keep their relationships with their families of origin. They are the people who will (or should) support you, regardless. So many of my friends have no relationship with their families; in part a hazard of gay people of my generation.

The deficit is down 37.6 percent for the first 10 months of the 2013 budget year, according to the Congressional Budget Office. But a new survey conducted by Google at Paul Krugman’s request finds that more than 50 percent of Americans think it’s still growing.

Last year the government spent $973.8 billion more than it took in for the first 10 months of the budget year. The deficit for the same period this year is $607.4. This year’s deficit is projected to be $670 billion.

As a share of gross domestic product, the deficit was recently as high as 10.1 percent in 2009, when the deficit was $1.4 trillion. It is now closer to 2 percent of GDP, which means the deficit has been cut by more than half since then, in both actual dollars and as a share of GDP.

A poll in February found that only 6 percent of Americans were aware the deficit was shrinking. The new survey finds that a little over 17 percent of those polled know the deficit is shrinking, with only 8.3 percent giving the correct answer: that it has decreased by a lot.

The perception that the deficit is still growing has been fed by Republicans including House Minority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who recently said the deficit is growing and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who said last week that we have trillion-dollar deficits.

What’s causing the deficit to drop so drastically? Probably even too quickly?

Economic growth, lower spending, increased taxes, and windfalls from government-sponsored mortgage corporations Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac brought on by the resurgent housing market.

Republicans are intent on keeping the so-called sequester in place, which will cut government spending by $85 billion, leading to the loss of up to 1,600,000 jobs. The government is only funded through September 30 and the debt limit will need to be raised soon after that. House Republicans have vowed to use both deadlines to demand even more cuts in spending, along with a delay in or defunding of Obamacare.

Theresa Rickman returned home from a recent trip and found a letter from the county saying the tax lien on her Kensington home was going to be sold for $3,461 in unpaid property taxes in 2005.

‘‘This is a million-dollar house,” Rickman said. ‘‘I’m just beside myself.”

Rickman, 44, is sure she would have noticed any delinquent tax payment warnings if the county had sent them, she said. Nevertheless, the April 17 notice almost went unnoticed because it arrived in a ‘‘rather nondescript” envelope, she said. The letter said the county would sell the property’s tax lien for the unpaid taxes.

The notice frightened Rickman — although county officials say a tax lien sale is just the first step in a years-long legal process before any home can be sold for unpaid taxes.

The county sends delinquent tax notices twice a year to property owners, said Robert Hagedoorn, the county’s treasury chief.

The county also sends out a notice 60 days before the annual tax lien sale in June, he said. This year’s sale is June 11.

The notices result in nearly all unpaid taxes being paid immediately, Hagedoorn said. The county auctions off about 1,000 liens annually. If a lien goes unsold and the taxes remain unpaid, the county can sell the property to collect the unpaid taxes. Fewer than five properties a year are sold to collect unpaid taxes, Hagedoorn said.

In a county of roughly 300,000 property tax payers, ‘‘It’s very, very rare” for the county to sell a home for unpaid taxes, he said.

In Rickman’s case, her property taxes were included in the mortgage payment to be sent to the county tax department, she said. Tax payments for the last six months of 2005, however, had been kept in the mortgage company’s escrow account and were not forwarded to the county, Rickman said.

Rickman, who does her own federal and state income taxes, said that when she did her federal tax returns last year, she thought the statement from the mortgage company for property taxes paid in 2005 seemed unusually low. But she said she did not follow up to see if there was an error.

[ < EYE ROLL > ]

After receiving the tax lien sale notice, Rickman called her attorney, who suggested she call the county and her mortgage company. The mortgage company sent off the payment for the late tax bill, and her tax lien was removed from the auction listing.

From the end of World War II through the late 1970s, the economy doubled in size -- as did almost everyone's income. Almost all Americans grew together. In fact, those in the bottom fifth of the income ladder saw their incomes more than double. Americans experienced upward mobility on a grand scale.

Yet for the last three and a half decades, the middle class has been losing ground. The median wage of male workers is now lower than it was in 1980, adjusted for inflation.

In addition, all the mechanisms we've used over the last three decades to minimize the effects of this descent -- young mothers streaming into paid work in the late 1970s and 1980s, everyone working longer hours in the 1990s, and then borrowing against the rising values of our homes -- are now exhausted. And wages are still dropping -- the median is now 4 percent below what it was at the start of the so-called recovery.

Meanwhile, income, wealth, and power have become more concentrated at the top than they've been in ninety years.

As a result, many have come to believe that the deck is stacked against them. Importantly, both the Tea Party and the Occupier movements began with the bailouts of Wall Street -- when both groups concluded that big government and big finance had plotted against the rest of us. The former blamed government; the latter blamed Wall Street.

Political scientists have also discovered a high correlation between inequality and political divisiveness.

The last time America was this bitterly divided was in the 1920s, which was the last time income, wealth, and power were this concentrated.

When average people feel the game is rigged, they get angry. And that anger can easily find its way into deep resentments -- of the poor, of blacks, of immigrants, of unions, of the well-educated, of government.

This shouldn't be surprising. Demagogues throughout history have used anger to target scapegoats -- thereby dividing and conquering, and distracting people from the real sources of their frustrations.

Make no mistake: The savage inequality America is experiencing today is deeply dangerous.

Bad anonymous said "only the former Randy Slobosky would have the temerity to say this in the midst of rattling off seven consecutive unprovoked posts."

Actually it was five (I deleted two where I accidentally missed part of what I was copying). And of course you lie once again by claiming they were unprovoked. You started by insulting me at Aug 02, 2013 7:26 AM and then Theresa joined in by attempting to slur all LGBT people with her idiotic comment at Aug 09, 2013 11:56 AM. It was only after that that I noted her comment was idiotic. Then she made three posts attacking me and it was after that I made the five posts you refer to.

Of course its pretty hypocritcial for someone like you to criticize the number of posts I've made when you frequently make dozens of comments on a thread with virtually no one else commenting. For example, here where you made 27 of the 32 comments posted at the time.

So, once again, the record shows it was you and Theresa who started attacking me and all LGBT people and me who was merely defending against unprovoked attacks. And of course like the moron you are you thought you could get away with lying about it and trying to place the blame for starting it on me when the truth was easily verified.

Bad anonymous said "lazy Priya, you may notice no one defends you here".

Once again, in your delusional world you filter out all the reality that doesn't match your evil agenda. I wasn't keeping track, but I count at least Cynthia, Robert, good anonymous, and Jim who've all defended me.

Bad anonymous said "everyone knows you started getting nasty and personal with Theresa long before she responded in kind".

In your dishonest world "everyone" knows that, in reality everyone knows she started it. She idiotically claimed in this thread that I started attacking her by saying I deserved the money she earned. Of course I am greatful for the people who contributed taxes to help support me and the idea that I would attack someone who had done so is absurd and in any event, contrary to her oft-repeated lies, Theresa has never contributed any money towards supporting me.

I first responded to her when she claimed people on welfare were living lives of luxury and I corrected her by noting my stark existence on welfare often living on nothing but peanut butter and spagetti for several days at the end of the month. At that point Theresa started screaming at me to go climb back under the rock I came from and so on.

Theresa often makes a post to a thread I haven't even commented on where she launches into an off-topic attack against me. She posts lies about me on her own blog which I've never commented on. The record clearly shows you and theresa are the ones who start attacking me without provocation but of course, like Theresa, the well documented truth never stopped you from posting easily debunked lies.

It took bad anonymous 4 days to think up a response to the last comment I made to him and these lies are the best he could do? Unbelievably pathetic. He puts next to no thought into whats been said, when, and by whom and just posts some kneejerk flappdoodle that's easily torn to shreds.

so I would agree with the last commenter, though I don't think drawing gay porn is productive, but the comment was funny.

Priya I have no idea what blog you are referring to.... please enlighten me.

I haven't referred to any other blog than this one, so I don't know what you're talking about.

lazy Priya

no one defends you, no one agrees with your hyperbolized sense of victimization

I think many here would, but for your excessive nasty disposition

no one wants to be associated with it

change your name and try again

Give it up bad anonymous, no one is fooled by your lame attempts to pretend there's someone else that agrees with your B.S.

I may be lazy but at least I'm not lazy and fraudulently collecting a paycheck for work I don't do like you are.

You can't stop yourself from telling easily debunked lies, can you?

Earlier I made five posts, not seven. After that I made six of the last fifteen.

Still no contest with your making close to 2/3rds of 64 or 27 of 32.

Fourteen words:

Hilariously unselfaware lazy obsessive compulsive fraudulently collecting a paycheck for work he doesn't do.

Let's not forget a couple of days before the 2012 election when you fatuously said "popular vote: Romney 52, Obama 48 you heard at TTF first, people".
