REVEALED: Josh Duggar sued Arkansas in 2007 because they investigated his sexual assaults


Josh Duggar filed a lawsuit against Arkansas’ Department of Human Services in 2007, shortly after the agency began investigating him for multiple charges of sexual assault, In Touch Weekly reports.


I am probably going to get slammed for this but I need help understanding some things.

I have been going our Condo By-laws and title 68 of the PA laws about condo association.

I want to write a letter raising my questions:

1--when is the last time they had a meeting? according to by laws and state laws you are to have one meeting a year. So far we have not seen one meeting being held. We have been given a ballot with items to vote on which is sent back to the be tallied by the President Secretary/Treasure. I want to write them a letter letting them know we know they are breaking the rules however they are spiteful bitches. My wife has made a complaint about the bird feeders from people's decks. My wife's view point is that IF this condo association does not want animals within the condo walls why are they encouraging wild animals --not only birds but we have seen squirrels and deer looking round the deck areas for fallen bird feed--to be outside the the building. The president's response was to hand a bird feeder on one of the low trees in front(below)our living room window therefore all my wife hears are birds chirping through out the day and half the time in the evening.

2--the condo beside us was being rented and the owner of that condo is the son of the President of the association. I guess he is divorced from his wife who forced the renter (the only friend and person we trusted) to move out in 20 days because she wanted to move in. The renter told us that the president doesn't want her daughter-in-law to force the renter out. The Renter also said this woman the owner of her condo is worse than the President and secretary/treasure. The renter was forced to be out by a certain date. The woman as yet to move in. Knowing what we do from past renters...techinqually the former renter could make a complaint with the housing association since they forced her out and have yet to fully occupy the residence.

3-- My wife has taken her protest of no animals to our windows. She has placed signs in our windows stating change the rules let pets in. The president and Secretary/Treasure have made comments that they think she should take down her signs.

4-- The condo by laws state that meetings should consist of 25% of the voting association but with only 8 condos that is what 2/3 people? basically all they need to do is have the President the Secretary/Treasure and the President's husband voting for the son or the son there to decide what will happen the all the condos. IF this is happening they are not making the meetings public which PA title 68 and the condo own laws required that they are announced.

Do I risk writing this letter or should we keep my wife's signs up and next time they want to send a ballot make them aware we know their actions are illegal. Am I reading these rules correctly? Are they acting illegal?

Another reason why I am asking is that I don't want to do something that could jeopardize my wife's Notary.

No we cannot move because we would lose too much money and right now until my wife finds a full time job. we are able to tread water in this condo...placing a rent payment onto of our head and utilities would put us underwater.

My wife's health insurance is a joke. We are paying a hundred dollars each month and they are rejecting her doctor's visits. She owe $580.00 dollars in doctor's bills. That is 2 visits to her pcp and blood work the doctor ordered. Doctor won't see her until the bill is paid --which we can understand-- We have fought to get them to cover the bills since it is suppose to be cover by the policy. I told my wife to cancel it that with my new job I can get her covered and myself for 50 dollars. now the insurance company is giving my wife a song and dance that she isn't allowed to cancel and if they can do it it would take 2 to 3 months. I can start her coverage in July when I get coverage BUT why pay for something not working.

Help? or am I wife and I beyond help?

Jesus is quick to forgive, but Josh Duggar’s apology is still disturbing


After doing wrong, we usually want everything to be all right. If we can patch things up with minimal cost and personal discomfort, so much the better.

Josh Duggar’s got a steep hill to climb, and I have no intention of piling on, but something about his public statement galls me. Here’s the full thing with some additional emphases:

Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.


I think all the use of I in his statement is a subconscious belief that he is the Real victim.

With all the bad that is happening in the Duggar world let us be kind to the Pregnant women.

My wife reminded me of this last night.

No matter how much news this is and how incredibly disgusted with the Duggar family. Keep in mind Josh's wife Anna and his sister Jessa are expecting. The Stress isn't good for either woman or the babies.

My wife has sent out well wishes that neither woman suffers from everything that is happening that could cause her to lose the baby.

I just thought it was a nice sentiment to share. My wife and I want the Duggars and their deranged empire to be exposed and punish justly BUT we do not want the stress to effect either mother or unborn child.

The Duggar Girls Learned to Kiss From Jim-Bob and Josh


Last year, Cosmopolitan ran an interview with four of the Duggar daughters during the women’s promotional tour for their book Growing Up Duggar. While the interview was intended to make the girls seem normal and relatable (even though they are four of 19 and participate in a religious sect which blames young girls for molestation), it’s now eerily sinister.

The interview was brought to our attention by longtime reader and Duggar expert Snacktastic who called that the interview was creepy over a year ago when Jana, Jessa, Jill, and Jinger spoke to Cosmopolitan about getting drunk and being virgins. But now that Josh Duggar’s molestation has come to light, there’s something even more creepy about the Duggars’ answers to questions about love and romance.

I hate right wingers!

A friend of ours has a son he is a senior in high school and he is kind of seeing this girl and kind of taking her under his wing of protection through this past school year. He took her to Homecoming which was a big thrill for a 14 year old freshman. He was 17 at the time. The girls mother was fine with it. Now he is 18 and she is still 14 and he wants to take her to senior prom. Her mother is threating to have to boy arrested for statutory rape why? The friend and the girls mother had a big blow out about the whole Josh Duggar issue. The girl mother is a Duggar defender and the friend is a democrat who doesn't defend the Duggars.

The woman basically had the nerve to say That if Josh did so wrong than my friend's son should be arrested for statutory rape of her daughter...Why? They went to the movies and before she got out of the car she and the boy kissed goodnight.

Agent: 'Lawrence of Arabia' star Omar Sharif has Alzheimer's


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Legendary "Lawrence of Arabia" actor Omar Sharif is battling Alzheimer's disease, his agent Steve Kenis confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday.

No additional details were provided about the 83-year-old or his care. His son, Tarek Sharif, revealed the diagnosis in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo on May 23.

My wife basically groaned in disbelief.

Could these Conservative Religous right-wing zealots causing these dereange actions?

I am sorry if this is half formed idea or I am not explaining my thoughts clearly. My wife and I had been talking about the who Duggar issue and just "falls Graces" from the past like Jim and Tammy Bakker and others and It kind of came to me. By oppressing human nature and even natural born desire--ie Being gay making everything "evil"--. From girls not allowed to wear pants, to people not going to beaches for fear of seeing "naked bodies" (people in swimsuits) to the fact Duggars don't wear shorts even the boys for fear it would arise lust.

What I'm beginning to think and not trying to sound like I'm am making light of Josh Duggar terrible and discussing actions. But One seriously has to wonder if these actions or in a sense a reaction to or acting out or however you want to say it--can it be partly caused by such oppressive rules no one can live up too?

Creationist: If evolution is true, then it wasn’t wrong for Josh Duggar to molest his sisters


A creationism activist suggested Josh Duggar be punished for molesting his sleeping sisters and their friends by being paid to campaign against LGBT people marrying one another.

That’s exactly what the 27-year-old Duggar was doing until Thursday, when he resigned his position with the Family Research Council after admitting to “inexcusable behavior” as a teenager.

“Since Josh molested girls, which could damage their trust of men, which could damage their future marriage, which could damage their future family, we should make Josh Duggar work the rest of his life to help families stay together and help them recognize how twisted the world is and how God offers instruction on how to live righteously!” said Hovind, who is affiliated with the Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida.


Duggar Family Mentor Resigns From Right Wing Religious Organization Amid Sex Scandal


The revelation that Josh Duggar is a child molester is currently blowing up the internet. Even worse, is the fact that his family concealed that fact, and all the while, Duggar has been rubbing elbows with a bunch of the GOP’s prized crop of 2016 presidential hopefuls. All in all, it’s not a good day for the sex-obsessed, woman-controlling, gay-hating “family values” crowd.

Well, guess what? Things are about to get even worse in that crazy corner of America, as Bill Gothard, a mentor to the Duggar family, has resigned from the Christian homeschooling organization he ran amid accusations of his sexually harassing more than 35 women and teenage girls. According to Radar Online, the 79-year-old Gothard is the founder of Institutes of Basic Life Principles, which the Duggar family supported and frequented. Of course, the good Christian responded the allegations in the only way such people know how to do: by quoting the Bible, saying that he wishes to “listen to those who made accusations against him.”

I respect a lot of religions BUT this quiverfull stuff and the religious right (those trying to mix church and state) I cannot stand. I also wonder how all this fallout will effect future election. Are we seeing the slow crumbling of this branch of the republican party?
