STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

Another example of someone deriving incorrect sociological conclusions from an assumption which cannot be proven.

Here the assumption is that the number of gay people correlates exactly with the number of gay couples. I hold that it does not. Lesbians are more likely to be in longer relationships than gay men and older people are also probably more likely to be in relationships. There is probably also a strong correlation with self-esteem in the LGBT population which might vary widely with geography.

Of course, if one is marketing to gay couples, that stats. are probably reasonable. But it would be nice if folks in marketing would realize that gay couples and gay singles probably have different buying patterns, instead of marketing to the LGBT community as it were a fucking monolith.

It's a good idea to keep them all together in certain areas.

It's a good idea to keep your false names and fake countries of residence all in a certain area.

Oh, that little liar, PIERRE is in France like I am in France. His life is a non stop "It's a Small World" ride of false names and false homelands. He is most probably in his mother's basement in Turkeydrop, Nebraska or some such non glamorous place that he has only seen in the local library back issues of National Geographic.

This is a TRUE story about how about 30 trouble making "mom's", who are partly angry over gays on the city council, will once again try to get a city "put on hold" again for nearly a year after the 2013 election, just like they did in 2012!

So, these activist "mom's" refused to show up for city council meetings and/or resigned after the May 2012 election when their friends were voted off and they lost power TO THE GAYS ON THE FIRE DEPARTMENT! So that brought the city to a virtual standstill with no quorum until a special election, in NOVEMBER 7 months later!

Now, after the May 2013 election, things are looking bad again. This race got 2 of the trouble makers right back in power, and the other empty seat is now TIED with one of their political conspirators. Which means a runoff race will happen unless one concedes.

This means out of 5 council seats (and a mayor who can't vote, except in a tie), the trouble makers now control 2 of the 5 seats. But we may not know if they regain control until November!

Here we are again, and welcome to NEXT November for the next special election for the tie breaker!

We even have a candidate that keeps getting elected in 3 way races without even a majority of voters wanting them on council!

Feel free to stop by and browse our forums and see for yourself how about 30 trouble making mom's can wreck a small city.
