As many residents already know of Gary Clifford's workers compensation claim, while he worked as a motorcycle police officer. But to go on and become a Glendora City Council man, Mayor, Instructor at Citrus College and finally CFO for Athens Services?

Don't want to leave out his work for other businesses, vactations include water, snow skiing, piloting a small airplane, marching and or jumping up and down at political rallies.

So whats the difference between what John X. Vach and What Gary Clifford did and has gotten away with for several years?

Can you even guess why it's called that? And why it only comes with 3 sticks, and is unofficially called "The game you'll only play once"? I'd like it so much if you let your opponent go first...

Goodness! I didn't realize I was talking to someone who studies "rocks". That must take some REAL training. After all, they have brains and are complex, thinking objects.
That's funny, one could say the same about an MSW. Takes a real genius to pay for 6 years of college for the privilege of working a dead-end, underpaid, and overworked career.

Good for you.

Now tell us again how stupid we all are?

Oh, and you are a social worker, don't break any limbs patting yourself on the back, acting like you deal with the complexities of the brain. There is no Dr. in your name.

Did you? Nah, I am pretty sure you simply read the abstract and liked what you saw so you stopped there. Otherwise, you wouldn't have made this stupid comment:

You see, because had you read the actual study cover to cover, which I just did since you brought it up.(Bet you didn't expect someone to do that?) You would have known that the very people who conducted the study presented in their conclusion OTHER valid reason's for the results they recorded- other than your beloved homophobes are closeted gay's.

Here ya go, since I guess you missed it the first time you pretended to read it.

"Another explanation of these data is found in Barlow, Sakheim, and Beck's (1983) theory of the role of anxiety and attention in sexual responding. It is possible that viewing homosexual stimuli causes negative emotions such as anxiety in homophobic men but not in nonhomophobic men. Because anxiety has been shown to enhance arousal and erection, this theory would predict increases in erection in homophobic men. Furthermore, it would indicate that a response to homosexual stimuli is a function of the threat condition rather than sexual arousal per se. Whereas difficulties of objectively evaluating psychoanalytic hypotheses are well-documented, these approaches would predict that sexual arousal is an intrinsic response to homosexual stimuli, whereas Barlow's (1986) theory would predict that sexual arousal to homosexual stimuli by homophobic individuals is a function of anxiety. These competing notions can and should be evaluated by future research. "

Here are a list of people who post on this thread every single day atleast 3-15 times per day. These people claim not to be gay, yet they are OBSESSED with gay marriage. These people will be on this thread seven days a week, 30-31 days a month (28-29 in February) and 365 days a year (366 on leap years). You couldn't pay these people to stop commenting about gay marriage. These people are about one or two more times getting cut off in traffic from either hanging themselves, or being the lead story on the 5 o'clock news, and it's only this thread that keeps them going for the time being....atleast here they have something to live for. Without this thread the suicide rate in their respective cities/towns would be just a little bit higher. This thread is to them, as the White House is to the President.

Frankie Rizzo approx. 82,000 comments about gay marriage
KiMare 12,115 comments about gay marriage
Pietro Armando 3,538 comments about gay marriage

Frankie Rizzo himself has almost 50% of the almost 200,000 posts on this thread. You can often find him posting 10-15 times in a row. TALK ABOUT OBSESSED!!

KiMare is obviously a lesbian. This level of hate can only be bread from an inner hatred towards ones own self. She hates herself on a very dangerous level. The only way she can live w her true self is by bashing other gays as much as possible, and cutting herself on a daily basis. Don't be too hard on her.

Pietro Armando was just dropped on his head as a baby one too many times.

So don't be too hard on these people. After all they are the frontrunners to be America's next unabombers, movie theater terrorists, anthrax killers, etc. etc.

Calling opponents homophobes and bigots is ad hominem fallacy. Their arguments aren't as good as ours protecting one man and one woman marriage.

Calling segregation and disunity, marriage by devaluing gender integration and gender diversity. Why risk it?

Keep marriage as is, one man and one woman.

I've answered your parenting studies question. Shall I tell you again? Here it is. Don't forget it this time.
The best parents for children are ones who are responsible, supportive, loving, disciplined, resourceful, etc... Sometimes they're heterosexual, sometimes they're homosexual. Sometimes they're married, sometimes they're single, sometimes they're unmarried, sometimes they're divorced.
You cannot say with 100% certainty that all heterosexual couples make good parents. They just don't. And not all homosexual couples make good parents.
It is the SKILL of the parents, not the sexuality, that makes all the difference.
Silly queen, you diagnosed, on line, those who simply disagree with calling ss couples married, and you gave your opinion about parenting.

The first is idiotic and unprofessional, and the second is avoiding the fact that you only have fraudulent, unscientific studies supporting ss parents.

You not only support a lie, you do so at the expense of little children.

From the article YOU posted;

"A separate analysis in the same journal edition by Loren Marks, associate professor at Louisiana State University, more directly challenges previous same-sex parenting studies as inadequate, biased and unreliable. He lists seven concerns with the science, including the fact that "well-educated, relatively wealthy lesbian couples have been repeatedly compared to single-parent heterosexual families instead of two-parent marriage-based families." Single-parent families typically have poorer child outcomes across several measures, so it's easier to look better against them, he said.

W. Bradford Wilcox of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia said biological married families are the gold standard for better outcomes for children."

You are a disgrace VV too your profession, and an embarrassment to your cause.

Snicker smile.

Baby, I'm an EXCELLENT social worker. Hardly went into it for the money or glamour. I'm particularly good at taking a person's train wreck of a life and putting them onto a much more successful course.

The reward I get from my job is the satisfaction that I have positively impacted lives for over a quarter of a century.
