HOUSE OF HORRORS

For over a century the Florida School For Boys in Mariana Florida was a dumping ground for young boys that the  Florida State Courts and Law Enforcement Agencies deemed to be an appropriate punishment for those who in any way broke the law. Including, for example, minor infractions like the theft of an empty soda bottle that one of the unfortunate inmates was caught trying to redeem for a nickle. 

 

Having been an inmate there myself in the late 50’s (convicted for eloping with my future wife) I can personally attest that there was little or no effort to hide the fact that this institution was much more than a school but rather a penal colony where torture, beatings, rape, and even murder wore condoned. 

 

The Florida School for Boys, also known as the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys (AGDS), was a reform school operated by the state of Florida in the panhandle town of Marianna from January 1, 1900, to June 30, 2011.[1][2] For a time, it was the largest juvenile reform institution in the United States.[3] A second campus was opened in the town of Okeechobee in 1955. Throughout its 111-year history, the school gained a reputation for abuse, beatings, rapes, torture, and even murder of students by staff. Despite periodic investigations, changes of leadership, and promises to improve, the allegations of cruelty and abuse continued. Many of the allegations were confirmed by separate investigations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 and the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in 2011.[4] State authorities closed the school permanently in June 2011.

 

As a result of diligent and determined efforts of a group of remaining survivors who call themselves “The White House Boys” http://www.officialwhitehouseboys.org/ have succeeded in bringing these atrocities to light and were able to get the attention of local, state and federal authorities (not to forget the media) so that justice for the victims is now imminent.

PROS AND CONS

Johann Wagener 3-25-13

 

People like to make comparisons between the Civil Rights movement of the 60’s and today’s Gay Rights movement. 

 

What both movements have in common is that they addressed individual’s rights of citizens in this country as they pertained to their everyday lives

 

Slatest PM: Has the Gay-Marriage Push Reached Critical Mass?

 

The pros are that, as a civil rights issue, marriage (gay or straight) is and should be a constitutional right regardless of gender preference.  Hopefully the Supreme Court in all its wisdom will soon put this issue to rest.  

 

Having said that, it is important to note that protecting the right to marry has nothing to do with condoning “gay sex” which is a “health” issue, not a civil rights one.

 

This is a serious health issue that has an impact on this society and it’s healthcare system and needs to be addressed in order to protect the civil rights of the public at large.

 

AN ACTUARIAL ANALYSIS OF THE AIDS EPIDEMIC IN THE U.S.

 

It is well-known that most AIDS victims are either homosexual men or IV drug users, or both. For them, the risk levels are high. As will be shown in this paper, nearly all of these AIDS victims have a lifestyle that creates immune system disorders and is generally not conducive to good health.

 

HIV IN THE UNITED STATES*

 

By risk group, gay, bisexual, and other MSM of all races remain the population most severely affected by HIV.

  • MSM accounted for 61% of all new HIV infections in the U.S. in 2009, as well as nearly half (49%) of people living with HIV in 2008 (the most recent year national prevalence data is available).
  • CDC estimates that MSM account for just 2% of the U.S. male population aged 13 and older, but accounted for more than 50% of all new HIV infections annually from 2006 to 2009. In 2010, MSM accounted for 61% of HIV diagnoses.
  • In 2009, white MSM accounted for the largest number of annual new HIV infections of any group in the U.S. (11,400), followed closely by black MSM (10,800).
  • Young, black MSM were the only risk group in the U.S. to experience statistically significant increases in new HIV infections from 2006–2009—from 4,400 new HIV infections in 2006 to 6,500 infections in 2009.

In order to not throw the bay out with the bath water we need to remain concerned about unhealthy sexual practices just as we have with other public health risks so let’s not get caught up in the hype that tends to cloud this issue by bundling it into a civil rights issue.

 

As a side note, it’s somewhat ironic that blacks are included in the high risk population.

 TILL DEATH DO US PART
Johann Wagener 3-24-13

 

Playing with sharks in their turf is a sure fire way to to shorten your life span. 

 

But that doesn’t stop the “crazies” who crawl into cages and are dumped in the ocean, with a little bit of bait thrown around the cage for good measure just to get “up close and personal” with  a man (or woman) eating shark. What’s even crazier is that they pay for it! Go figure?

TROPHIES OR CHARMS?
Johann Wagener 3-24-13

 

Back in the “OJ” days they called them “trophies” but ABC News coined this one as a “good luck charm” 

 

In both instances they are referring to young (usually blonde) attractive women who pair up with a celebrity and the media frenzy goes non-stop all the way to the end which is usually comes sooner than later. 

 

This time  the Tiger apparently convinced Vonn that 3 years of sex therapy has cured him. He’s kidding, right? Has anyone noticed the resemblance between his last trophy and his  current good luck charm?
