His crybaby missive to IndyCrap pleading for help from the LBGT's got totally ignored. They deemed his "crying wolf" not worthy of response. He's turned off all of the people who could potentially do his some good. SCPD probably wouldn't pee on him if he was on fire.

as i have written for the millionth time, I AM NOT GAY.
unfortunately the gang of LGBT haters at the Mission Gardens Apartments could care less whether i am GAY are or STRAIGHT. they are just seeking easy targets to channel their vitriolic hatred against.
thus they tagged me as LGBT, then discriminated against me: harassing me, taunting me, intimidating me and threatening me with implied violence. they solicited and organized other residents like a lynch mob with a 5 page petition to wrongfully evict me, to take my home from me, and to terminate my Section 8 benefits.
worst, they told other residents i am a danger to children. they maligned me to the entirety of Mission Gardens.
but, for the millionth time, I AM NOT GAY, i am straight.
Oh, so you ONLY claim you're Gay when you want to SLAM people with a "Hate" crime... Trust me john, you are hated, not for being gay or straight. NOBODY cares what your sexual preference is (cough,PAT,cough)

i invite all of the PRIDE marchers throughout the world to come to the Mission Gardens Apartments at 90 Grandview Street in Santa Cruz, California, to show that (perceived) LGBT people cannot be run out of their homes by a small lynch mob of LGBT haters.
this gang of LGBT haters got the stupid notion in their heads that i am LGBT, while i am not and they have no proof i am. then they started a crusade to run me out of my home, by threatening, intimidating, and harassing me, and by maligning me to my neighbors, telling them i am a danger to children.
they solicited and organized residents with a 5 page petition to wrongfully evict me, to take my home and my right to Section 8 housing from me.
PRIDE marchers need to show the lynch mob of LGBT haters at the Mission Gardens Apartments that their hate is unacceptable, that we all stand together against hatred.

I am bisexual but i believe they should be quiet and deal with it in parliament/petitions etc-not on the streets.It achieves nothing.

An Irishman goes to the Doctor with botty problems..

'Doctor, it's me ahrse.I'd like ya ta teyk a look, if ya woot'.

So the doctor gets him to drop his pants and takes a look.

'Incredible', he says,'there is a £20 note lodged up here.'

Tentatively he eases the twenty out of the man's bottom, and then a £10 note appears.

'This is amazing!' exclaims the Doctor.''What do you want me to do?'

'Well fur gadness sake teyk it out, man!' shrieks the patient.

The doctor pulls out the tenner and another twenty appears, and another and another and another, etc.....

Finally the last bill comes out and no more appear.

'Ah Doctor, tank ya koindly, dat's moch batter. Just out of interest, how moch was in dare den?'

The Doctor counts the pile of cash and says '£1,990 exactly.'
'Ah, dat'd be roit,'' says the Irishman

'I knew I wasn't feeling two grand.'

Supreme Court:

"The question is whether the resulting injury and indignity is a deprivation of an essential part of the liberty protected by the Fifth Amendment, since what New York treats as alike, the federal law deems unlike by a law designed to injure the same class the State seeks to protect."

"DOMA's principal effect is to identify a subset of state-sanctioned marriages and make them unequal. The principal purpose is to impose inequality, not for other reasons like governmental efficiency. By this dynamic DOMA undermines both the public and private significance of state-sanctioned same-sex marriages; for it tells those couples, and all the world, that their otherwise valid marriages are unworthy of federal recognition. This places same-sex couples in an unstable position of being in a second-tier marriage. The differentiation demeans the couple, whose moral and sexual choices the Constitution protects.

Under DOMA, same-sex married couples have their lives burdened, by reason of government decree, in visible and public ways. By its great reach, DOMA touches many aspects of married and family life, from the mundane to the profound.

The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity. By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment" (Windsor)

Equal rights will be more difficult in those countries where equal protections of the law is not a guarantee of their consitutions or governments.
