Everyone is someone's hero, maybe there is a third grader that looks up to Barney. I just hope Barney isn't looking up third graders.

No adult should have to worry about it, and no other 3rd grader like you should have to worry either.

Realty check: multi post on here referring to child molestation tells you the perverts are out there. Using a tasteless topic for no apparent purpose' other than revenge for a difference of political opinion, makes one wonder why such a distasteful topic is so prevalent in minds like yours.

If you are reaching out for help you can also use a crisis line anonymously also.

Good Luck,

May God bless you.

Sexual Predator Warning Signs

Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of the Dr. Phil Advisory Board and Dr. Phil's mentor, offers some insight into the development of a sexual predator:

"The typical sexual predator is very immature in his or her understanding of intimacy. It is like they really want closeness, but they lack the skills to feel satisfaction and trust. These feelings of frustration erupt into anger many times, and it is in this stage that the individual can become dangerous. Their acts are desperate. They try to find intimacy and caring for themselves, but when they can't find it in appropriate ways, they demand it or find a child who has little resistance," says Dr. Lawlis. "It is common to find parents of sexual predators also weak in skills of affection. Consequently, they cannot train or offer to meet these needs for their child. And then the cycle continues."

There are some common characteristics of sexual predators. If you're worried your teen may be a sexual predator, look for these warning signs:

•Refusal to take responsibility for actions and blames others or circumstances for failures

•A sense of entitlement

•Low self-esteem

•Need for power and control

•Lack of empathy

•Inability to form intimate relationships with adults

•History of abuse

•Troubled childhood

•Deviant sexual behavior and attitudes

From the book, Protecting Your Children from Sexual Predators, by Dr. Leigh M. Baker.


Other Tips on Spotting a Sexual Predator:

•Often offend where they won't get caught — when they have misdirected people's attention
•Often married or in relationships
•Offend when the victim is handy
•Not always strangers, often family members, family friends and neighbors
•Most attracted to adults
•Good manipulators (seduction is an integral part)
•Overly self-indulgent
•Arrogant
•Sexualize, objectify women
•Typically known as rationalizers, intellectualizers, justifiers
•Great helpers — are there to lend a helping hand — prey on people in need, when they can insinuate themselves in your life
•Use stressful and vulnerable situations to get in — they find a need they can fill and they use that to get next to the victim

characteristic of an emotional immature person. The best way to identify it is by selfish behavior. It is unlikely that they will have any concern for their actions or consequences.
Another strong trait is that they do not accept responsibility for their actions and find another individual's actions to be the cause of their poor performance or inability. They commonly don't have a realistic view on themselves and are not susceptible to constructive criticism.

Dear Dr Phil, Glad to see that you and your other selfs have moved to Biggers. Must have met Barney in your travels, not only do you describe him well but have also developed his habit of cut and paste. Well, those of us that work need to go there.

Most sexual predators would pick another site to do their evil deeds, only you and/or Barney would visit this site for that purpose. Barney has always been good a shifting blame, you have a good teacher, not bright but good. I notice that I am now ummm, I hate iPads

I've heard it all. I came across this article today http://wallstcheatsheet.com/stocks/obamacare-... . It talks about people who only work for health benefits quitting the workforce and getting on welfare. It says that would be a good thing because the idea is that there will be others who are unemployed that will fill those positions thus making it a washout. It also says that the unemployment rate could rise as much as 0.3-0.6 percentage points as a result of this. First off, I don't know anyone who takes a job solely for the purpose of health care. Everyone takes a job for the paycheck first and foremost, then they consider the benefits but the paycheck is first. Second, if this is supposed to result in a washout, then why would the unemployment rise at all? Whouldn't those who are still looking for work be the first to fill the positions, or would this phenomenon cause another phenomenon where those who are not even looking for work simultaneously go out and all go to these places and fill the jobs? That is the only scenario where the unemployment could actually rise assuming that those who quit all filed for unemployment benefits but the article said they would just go to welfare which implies that they wouldn't be looking at all. The liberal mindset is so screwed up. It takes taxes for our government to run so taking people out of the labor pool only puts more strain on those who stay in and it hurts their quality of life and kills their ambition to succeed. What I find even more disturbing is that it appears as though the liberals are coming out of the closet about their true intentions. I mean putting it in print for all to read that people leaving the workforce to get on welfare being a good thing is sickening. We only have a two more chances to save this nation. One in November of 2014 and the other in November 2016. If we elect the same people we have been electing for the past 30 years (Democratic and Republican), then we are just voting for the same thing we have now. If some fresh new blood doesn't enter the political arena, then the prospect of us climbing out of this hole is bleak at best.

said they would just go to welfare"

"unemployment rate could rise as much as 0.3-0.6 percentage points as a result of this"

REALLY THIS IS WHAT I READ;

will quit and sign up for Medicaid or subsidized coverage on the newly-created insurance exchanges. Garthwaite, Gross, and Notowidigdo calculated that the Obamacare-related decrease in the labor supply among this group of low-income workers could reduce

the employment rate by between 0.3 and 0.6 percentage points.

Let me point out a couple of things,

1. It said decrease UE not increase as you stated.

"liberals are coming out of the closet about their true intentions"

2.Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg are Right Wing publications.

3. The article clearly stated many times,

"Affordable Care Act could have on the labor market"

In other words, the article was based on what if's.

Possibilities not probabilities.

How is it conceivable to say a lot of research when only one article on the matter was put up?

The poster said they picked him out due to his comments,
it could be a consular who knows what they are talking about.

You notice the person did not deny being what he was accused of and so often speaks of, a child molester. He sure fit the profile posted.

Enough so that I had a conversation about this with the county Sheriff today.

The question was asked earlier, why would a child molester go to a site frequented by voters? Unless you're a democrat you have to be an adult to vote.

Then what does "pathway from work to welfare" mean?
Misread decrease, thought it said increase. Still, that only means that more people will be added to those not loking for work which aren't counted but they're still not working and paying taxes to help this country run. I consider that a bad thing. As long as we are assuming things, I don't think that many will go from unemployment to fill those positions. Those jobs, which pay minimum wage, are a dime a dozen. Every fast food restaraunt from coast to coast is looking for help and have been for years. If nobody wanted those jobs before people went on the "pathway from work to welfare", then nobody will want those jobs after.

I have no idea what that means, nor do I understand how you can quit your and job,

quote: "and sign up for Medicaid or subsidized coverage".

Medicaid I can understand, but how in the world do they expect the unemployed to pay their share of premium for subsidized coverage in an exchange?

It came from one of your fellow liberals. You tell me. I only know that this happens in low income families, especially those who live off of the government. I see it alot from my tenants and their friends. They will do ANYTHING to stay on the government dole. They used to work very hard at giving the appearance that they simply couldn't find jobs. Now, with Obama in office, they don't even try to hide the fact that they're not going to get a job, they don't even want a job. It is much more common than people realize. I can guarantee that our town isn't an isolated case. Every town has a percentage of the population that lives that way. The people who make a good living simply bury their heads in the sand in their glass house and pretend that way of life doesn't exist. They are also the ones who are sympathetic to the lies people tell to keep generations on welfare and out of the workforce. Never working means their skillset is actually below a minimum wage job yet America pays an average of $42,000 per person per year on our entitlements. There is NO WAY those people, who have raised their standard of living to $42,000 per year will ever find a job that bridges the gap between what they are qualified to do and what they need to keep their standard of living. It's why I have a real problem with our entitlement society.
