I used to think that about certain workers within Potter County CYS...but they are MILD compared to some. Centre county is worse, believe me. I think the entire system needs an overhaul. Read the laws, they are left vague to "protect " the children, yet are abused in many cases. The latest is many counties are removing all children in families with Autistic kids, but won't provide help for the Autistic child. Last I knew, Centre county had 11 cases of this...make the parents choose, or worse, just tear the "normal" kids out of the home and the Autistic child does not even have to, and often does not show any sign of possibly hurting the other kids. These ppl really need to be chosen better and educated better...most know nothing of many of the childhood neurological disorders. Some don't have a degree in ANYTHING that involves kids...like Criminal Justice. All one really has to have is a bachelor's in SOMETHING to get in. And, of course, with the current state of the economy in this country and especially this state, it is only going to get worse. Did you also know that many, MOST of the CYS agencies discriminate against the poor? If a family is well off, they investigate, briefly and apologize for the inconvenience. Middle class, the do the same, no apology. Lower class, you can expect them to be in your life for AT LEAST 6 months because if you are poor you can't possibly know how to parent. They seem to believe the poor are stupid, ignorant, or both. Funny as I know many CYS workers who are at least ignorant, yet they make decisions that can make or break lives. Like I said, they don't have to know a damn thing about kids, yet they make decisions EVERY day that can tear a family and its members to shreds! (Jul 9, 2010 | post #4)
P.S. READ your Bible, from beginning to end. See just how much it contradicts itself!!! Research the origins of said literature BEFORE making an ignorant comment like this one! If your Bible is so true, your God so true, than how is it that archaeologists have found remains of a wife and children of Jesus buried next to the remains of said man?! How is it that again and again archaeologists and scientists have and continue to disprove said book of fiction? If you like, I can point you to websites to begin your journey into reality. Or do you choose to blindly follow just because someone says it is so? (Dec 11, 2008 | post #6)
What drugs are YOU on??!! The only "tolerance " this nation has "accomplished " is that of Christian beliefs! Yet, what most of you don't want to admit is to other beliefs such as Wicca, Druidism, Satanism and Atheism. Those are diverse and true religions as well and NOT very well tolerated or accepted. Sadly, it is those of the faiths I mentioned above that have actually studied ALL of the religions prior to making their choices. They don't just blindly follow! (Dec 11, 2008 | post #5)
I VERY MUCH know what I'm talking about....do YOU?? Have you done the research...Bubba?? I HAVE! So my suggestion to you...is to do the same. Read reality and good luck to you on your journey to education! (Dec 11, 2008 | post #4)
While I agree that it was the wrong place to have a hlstered, visible firearm...she still has her rights. Those rights are there for a reason, always have been and that sheriff did violate her rights! There is NO reason she shouldn't win this case, and I hope so, or we, Americans could lose yet another right!! Personally, I don't carry, but if I did, I would have had it concealed so it didn't scare or raise the interest of the children, including the sheriff! (Nov 25, 2008 | post #19)
Blah, blah, blah, blah. I am an Athiest, which is NOT to be confused with Satanist! But I have done my reasearch prior to making that decision. So DON'T TELL ME WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! You are truly clueless and way off topic. Not to mention confused@ "Some Jesus Christ", Jesus Christ you need to go back to grade school and learn to write, get an education, and while you are at it....study religion, or should I say religions??!! So that you have a clue! (Nov 25, 2008 | post #1927)
WHAT??!! Are you on crack??!! I think you need professional help! Newt Gingrich was responsible for economical disaster in the past! You are truly unreal! Obviously you are either truly misinformed and need to go study your history, or you are totally and completely ignorant of reality! Ever heard of Abilify, Risperdal, Haldol???!!! Look them up then go ask your doctor for them! (Nov 24, 2008 | post #1915)
We don't have to lie and usually don't. ARE YOU BLIND???!!! The Bushes are the biggest liars to date! And Reagan took credit for plans that Carter put into place AND TRIED, but not successfully, to dump the IDEA laws during the summer when he thought no one was looking. I think you need to do your homework! As for Palin....well, did she or did she not make her own bed, and would she or would she not be doing the same if she ran??!!! She would lose, yes, greatly, as she has already done! It was quite clear that Palin was chosen for VP elect for a reason, and that reason was to elicit the minorities. It was also clear that she was chosen for her ability to speak in public. HOWEVER, as she seemed to be running the show, and not McPain, it is also clear that if she ran for president, if she were so bold to attempt this, she would LOSE to Obama, just as she already has done. Oh...and don't forget...she's a "Maverick ", LOL, she can take it!! (Nov 24, 2008 | post #1913)
Another Potter County man who likes to molest little girls (or at least proposition them) - imagine that! Are you surprised? I'm sure as hell not! Grew up hearing the term "dirty old man". It's about time they found them and the girls spoke up!!! (Nov 24, 2008 | post #1)
Excuse me, bonfireofvanity... .uh, since you are not of this country, your input matters NOT! How DARE you, how DARE you, stereotype like this! Most, MOST of we Americans are not Bush, nor are we all materialistic morons, or any of the other things that you people from other countries call us, just as not all people from other countries are not as prejudiced as you! Damn good thing too! Seems to me, since you seem be ignorant, that would make YOU stupid! (Nov 23, 2008 | post #1876)
uh....didn't she already do this??!! Oh, wait, she was only running for VP, it just SEEMED like SHE was the one running and dragging McPain along with her! Like a mother dragging her kid around with her while she ran her errands as quickly as possible so that she could get home and get dinner started! As for the comment about her beating Obama out....GOOD LUCK WITH THAT! He already beat her once and has been keeping his campaign promises since before he won the election! If you think that the voters that put Obama into the office are going to forget, for one minute, her affiliation with McPain and Bush, nor the NIGHTMARE of the last 8 years, you are obviously delusional and you should get help with that! (Nov 23, 2008 | post #1872)
That is fine. For the past 8 years I have been saying "bushes belong outside of the house, neatly trimmed and kept under control, NOT in THE HOUSE!" We all have our opinions....good thing that most voters (the winners) share mine! Of course I have mine and it is of MY opinion that with Barack Obama in the Presidential seat ALL Americans will win. He is ALREADY invoking the change he promised! Imagine that - a president that keeps his promises! As for your criminal remark...I don't believe that ANY of his cabinet members are being accused of or on trial for war crimes, nor will they EVER! What is your basis for calling his "cabnet" criminals anyway? Do you have anything you can cite to back that up? Or are you as incapable of intelligent conversation as your spelling indicates???!!!

I KNOW these people!!! They didn't just care for adult mentally challenged women, they also provided respite care for the county. This included children. These women may have desires, but they also may not have the mental ability to make these choices. Also, as I heard it, they didn't have much choice. As for where he wife was...well...it was a farm, she was probably there. Or running around doing the Special Olympic things she does. Or providing transportation to or from their residence for respite care children. Or at her Mennonite church. Or with one of their children or grandchildren. I do not know why the county continued to utilize these people other than the fact that they would take people that no one else would. Their home - filthy, just as much a zoo as the outside. Their religious beliefs....pushed on those who entered their home, including those they provided respite care for regardless of it being against the rules. He was a dirty filthy man who always gave me the creeps and she was overbearing and opinionated, just as uncomfortable to be around. They were also a big feature at the Human Services' county fairs, as well as Relay for Life. He gave people pony rides in a cart behind their ponies. To the outside world, they seemed generous and Christian with firm humanitarian beliefs. But then so did all of the priests who have now been busted for molesting children. My question is: why do so many...so many of these stories have a vastly religious background? How, how do they rectify all of this to their God? And with soooooo many of these stories, (see http://www.jcnot4m e.com/Items/cults/ victims_of_religio n.htm and http://www.seeshar ppress.com/20reaso ns.html)and so much evidence that disproves the Bible, how, how can anyone still believe in this??!! Religion, it seems, is often used to disguise the grotesque, the most outlandish behaviors. The more ferverent one is in their "God" and their religion, the more I question what they are using it to hide behind! Science, proven methodology and artifacts from "the time" disproves much of the Bible and stories, yet people still choose to believe, strongly even?!! They deny what science proves, dismiss it without even investigating it because their Bible tells them so??!! Every religious day, people give to their churches, but complain about welfare. Republicans live on it, hide behind it often using the excuse of "I donate to my church" as their reasoning why they should not pay more taxes for programs that help people. That makes no sense! None of it makes sense! To sum it up, evil often hides behind religion and religion has no problem with that. (Nov 22, 2008 | post #2)
The community did not just make these girls out to be what they made them out to be....the community also played THEIR part in making these girls what they are! People there REALLY need to open their minds and get up to the times, instead of treating females as work horses and less thans.... Self fulfilling prophecy...if you tell people they will be something, treat them as such they often turn into it. Women in Potter County all seem to be mere harlots, who can now work AND raise the kids AND pay the bills, you know EVERYTHING. If they don't, they are condemned. Women, in Potter county are still seen as beneath...beneath men and beneath them under sheets. If they speak up, they are dismissed and treated as though they lie and exaggerate. I know, I liveD it...still live with its effects. I was raped at 13 in Potter county, by a man who ironically had the first name of Tim. I was his 3rd rape to my knowledge. I didn't call the police. I did not want to have to tell my story over and over again, and, be accused of being loose or any of that garbage the court system puts victims of rape through. (Nov 22, 2008 | post #19)
What a typical Potter County male reply! I don't agree with what this man did, by ANY means. But I am SURE that you are by far not perfect by any means! Violence is NOT the answer asshole! The better idea....give him and all like him their own island, complete with all they need to live - animals, bows and arrows, nails, hammers, etc.....so that they can meet their basic needs. Then they will be of no bother to any more children (oh, and don't forget about the priests who like the little boys), or you, and they will not be able to procreate to create more of themselves, or anything else. They are treated humainely and won't bother you. PPL tend to forget, ppl like Tim Butler learn this crap from somewhere, and were usually raped themselves as children. Who defended them then? Did you want to kill him then??? The only answer is to END THE CYCLE and get these children help ASAP!!! (Nov 22, 2008 | post #18)

On My Mind:
I am sick of hearing about Barack Obama's skin color!
I Believe In:
the truth, science, reality, I believe in no almighty being, no "God", no "hell" (except for here on earth), no "Satan"....nothing Humanitarianism...if you don't know, LOOK it up! White witches...people who use herbs, nature to make an effect on their lives (every cook does this, herbalists do this, those who take vitamins do this....yes, the world is FULL of witches and YOU are probably a witch in denial!) If you believe in "God", "Jesus" and/or the Bible that means you believe the sputterings of schizophrenics who hear a man speak that no one else hears and wrote it in the form of the Bible! If these ppl existed today, they would be in the local mental institution, while given antipsychotic meds!
