i truly do not believe that whether he was a dem, or a repub....has any bearing on whether or not he sucks d!ck.

gays are everywhere...not that there is anything wrong with being gay....but i doubt very seriously a dem or a repub sits behind their respective desks and thinks to themselves...."since i am a member of the _________ party....i guess i should blow(or eat) my same sex constituents today".

that has got to be, hands down.....the stupidest question i have seen on here in a loooooooong time.....and that is a bold statement considering the amount of idiocy that goes on on this site

Saneanger, you are misinformed. While you can legally have sex at 16, it's only allowed if the other person is between 16-18 as well. If it's with someone over 18, it's illegal. While the mayor was misled, he should've had the sense to investigate some more, get to really know this person before acting on impulses. And it would still be an issue if we wasn't gay or a mayor. I know somebody who was arrested because he was sleeping with a 16 year old girl, and he certainly wasn't gay, or a mayor. The only differance is it wouldn't be as publisized, but believe me, people would still talk.

Well...I must say, Lakeland has its share of drama now doesn't it? For an area so small, kinda makes a guy wonder what to heck is in the water.

I shake my head in disbelief...at all the Lakeland grief...such a beautiful place...can't say I could live in it.

I started to watch march two thousand eight and read of a crime six girls did undertake. The girls walk free of this I am sure and now they've aged three years but not mature. Bet Cara still likes to be called monkey_c by her bestfriend April or Mercades. Brittini and Kayla still live in a delusion haze and still doing the bidding of Britney Mayes.

A mayor did wander through the gay community, lookin for the lovin he won't get from me. He turned to the ads online, searching for a play toy to occupy his time. The toy turned out to be a boy of seventeen who wanted to have a daddy if you know what I mean.

WOW!!
Thanks for the reminder of the events that form our community. I had almost forgotten about the mayor. I do remember all too well the stupidity and cowardice displayed by the "mulberry" 6!
I dont get into Polk all that often anymore. I do wonder what has become of Britney Mayes, Kayla Hassall, Cara Murphy, April Cooper, Brittini Hardcastle and Mercades Nichols?

It's not so much the water as it is that the schools in this town don't discipline the students, and when they do try the parents will argue with the staff and cause a scene. With that kind of stuff going on is it really surprising that you end up with teenagers that commit felonies? Little Johnny won't stop beating kids up if you don't put your foot down and do something about it.

So let's see, we've had vicious cheerleaders, political scandals, robberies; what will go wrong next?

it starts at the top. our community leaders themselves even the police department will not admit when they have made a mistake or done something wrong,. so what are we teaching the young in our community?
