You'd think if they're from Hemet they would be use to making sure their stuff was secure. Anything that isn't nailed down in the Valley, is gone. Do you know what the latest thing is--stealing pickup tailgates.
Can't believe how many vehicles are stolen around here!

Well if they can afford 8 GRAND on bikes then they can afford a LOCKING cargo trailer to keep them in. Or just to vacation somewhere else as well.....

Well if you can afford more than ANON can, you can afford to make a better decision! Did I get that right, ANON?

To see John Colby's curriculum shitae, Google search "john e. colby" and visit his LinkedIn page. It's very illuminating.


John's eviction details and more.


John making demands (be sure to click on the embedded links).


A sample of John in "rant mode".


See John's two posts in the comment section.


John Colby endangered several of his so-called "clients" (Steve Lazow and Andrea Morgan) by posting their personal information and pictures on the Internet during the period June through 2 August 2012. In both instances, John posted particularly detailed information about their physical infirmities, health issues, and included several pictures of them on the Internet. In the case of Ms Morgan, twenty-three days after John's post in Indybay, Ms Morgan was robbed.

So, how much did the publishing of Ms. Morgan's health issues, vulnerabilities, and pictures contribute to her becoming a victim of the robbery? How much did the publishing of Ms Morgan's pictures aid the robber in identifying this fragile human being as being a good target for a robbery? John's very quick to remind everyone that he has a PhD in Computer Science and yet even a freshman taking computer science classes knows the dangers of posting personal information on the Internet. As a PhD, John Colby's actions, in that regard, were careless and negligent to the extreme.

John's also careless about posting his own personal information and that of his sister, Pat. Pictures, home address, phone numbers, the list goes on and on. One one occasion, he even posted his credit card number.


One of John's achievements.


Check out the June 12 edition of Robert Norse's FRSC show with John and Pat Colby providing comic and idiotic relief at:

Throughout the show:

--- Robert messes with the heads of John and Pat Colby.

--- Pat/Jabba is kissing Robert's arse throughout the interview (non-stop "I agree with you, Robert")

--- John the Loon comes across as ignorant (Ummmmm.... Ummmmm.... I don't know.) and is constantly being fed words from his puppet master, Pat/Jabba (I guess we know who wears the pants in that family and it isn't John).

Why would Robert bring the Colbys on the show to talk about a subject that they do not sound very competent in discussing? I can think of two reasons. First, after listening to the Colby toadies, it makes Robert sound all that much more intelligent by comparison. Secondly, it probably was a vanity thing. I'm sure Robert just loved the way John and Pat slobbered over and yielded to his points of view. I'm sure he also enjoyed having the Colbys abase themselves.
