There needs to a bounty put on their heads, payable in cash and tax free with in 24hrs of their arrest and booking, politician's like CA. Tim Donnelly are also wanted.

Another crooked COP, oops I mean more crooked cops.

A South Lake Tahoe, California police officer pleaded guilty May 22, 2013 Wednesday to multiple counts of witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.

A three-year, multi-agency investigation involving the FBI led to 44-year-old John Gerald Poland’s arrest in January 2013 on five counts of witness tampering.

Anyway, you should give some consideration to supporting the polygamists, before you use the same arguments against them, that you despise being used against your lot, it makes you look biased and hypocritical, in addition to easily provoked...
See, that's the thing with you and some of the others on here. You think that this is some kind of a joke.

"Hey! Let's go over to TOPIX and fuck with the gay people! We don't actually give a rat's ass about same-sex marriage, but maybe we can REALLY piss them off!" And then I figure you burp, fart, and scratch your insignificant testicles.

This issue is serious to us. It's about our lives.

It's pretty easy to diminish our feelings about the issue when YOU already have the access to the rights and protections of marriage.

Regarding polygamy: they have the same access to the court systems, political process, educating the masses, etc. that we do. If they want to seek rights for legal marriage, there's nothing stopping them.

As I've said many times, they do not threaten me. I am not afraid of polygamy being legalized. It would not impact my life in any way.

You guys, on the other hand, fear something about same-sex marriage. It's either that or you're just fucking around with us--poking fun at the queers. Making our lives just a little bit more difficult because you can.

I won't apologize for being passionate about this issue. I've gotten in the face of MANY people over this issue. When the Proposition 8 was announced I RAN down to San Francisco's City Hall, where I knew there would be OUTRAGED people like me.

I was confronted with some rube, who was wagging his Bible in my face--telling me about Leviticus. I grabbed the Bible out of his hands and went straight to the passages in Leviticus that outlawed shellfish. I then screamed at him, "WHY DON'T YOU GO DOWN TO RED LOBSTER AND PROTEST THEM?!?" He walked away and disappeared into the crowd.

I have put many hours into fighting for this cause. And when I am confronted with ignorance such as yours, I will address it every time.

What is the point then? If everyone has a "right" to have their personal intimate consenting sexual adult relationship called marriage by the state, why bother licensing it at all? Why does it matter who marries who, or doesn't marry who?

The fact that you swallow other guys loads as part of your "lovemaking" shows just what an abomination you and your ilk are. And you didn't run down to city hall.

You may have been sending me a "message", but what you showed me is that you are a highly volatile mix of raw emotion and sensitivity. You sound dangerous. Do you get in peoples faces for looking at you? Do you experience "Road Rage" at awkward times? Or, cry at inappropriate times? How far has your rage taken you? Most of us use intellect and skills to go through life. You've threatened and yelled to get what you want? Hmmm.... You might really need some therapy. All joking aside...
All joking aside, I can take care of myself. I've done it for a very long time. And I'm about as dangerous as anybody when they're pushed.

I guess I do come from a family of volatile people. A few of my relatives are in state penitentiaries. When I was growing up, when somebody died, we always had somebody who was present in shackles and handcuffs with a guard in tow.

I was able to direct my energy into more positive avenues. I went to college, then got my graduate degree--second to graduate from college and first to hold a master's degree. Since then I've been working in hospitals, helping people who have had major medical problems--illnesses or accidents. Typically, these are people who can't return to their homes. They need either short-term or long-term help. Most of them aren't ready to accept their new limitations, so I spend a good deal of time helping them to understand their reality. Then there are the abuse victims, gunshot wounds, cancer patients, etc.; plus their families. If you want to see a family dynamic really fall apart or really rally together, throw a major medical problem their way.

Early on, I spent most of my time as a social worker, dealing with floridly psychotic people. I went out with police officers and helped talk people down from bridges or helped with hostage situations.

On a somewhat lighter note, I was once called out in the middle of the night by the police department. They had been called by a husband whose wife had stopped her medicines. She was VERY bipolar. She had become enraged at her husband. She was very paranoid--believed that he was cheating on her with Dolly Parton.

I walked into the house and could hear this woman screaming at the top of her lungs--using words that I hadn't heard before.

It was a nice neighborhood--not the typical place where I usually went. Most of the places where I went were housing projects or homeless shelters. But this house was very nice.

The place had been destroyed. Lamps were broken. Furniture had been overturned. A window was shattered. And there was dirt everywhere.

My job was to evaluate this woman and determine if she needed to be hospitalized by way of commitment--against her will. Looking around, it seemed fairly obvious that she met the criteria of being a "danger to self and others".

I saw her and tried to speak to her. She was hysterical. She wasn't making any sense. I couldn't get a word in edgewise.

As I spoke to her husband, I just couldn't stop focusing on all of the dirt in what was probably a normally immaculate house.

Finally, my curiosity got the better of me. I asked her husband, "Where did all of this dirt come from?" I mean it looked like someone had come in with about five or six, 20 pound bags of dirt.

He took me into the dining room and pointed at a bunch of empty, large flower pots. Then he pointed to several plants that had been uprooted by his wife.

Apparently she had become so enraged that she ripped the plants out of the pot and had been using them like a bat, trying to hit her husband.

I almost laughed out loud when I saw what kind of plants they were. They were "peace" lilies. They had been used in anything but a peaceful means that night.

Well, apparently it matters to you straight people, because you seem to have a death-grip on it. You want to withhold rights and protections from same-gender couples.

If you want to start a movement to withdraw all rights and protections afforded through marriage, be my guest. I'm pretty sure you're not going to find much support.
