In response to this weeks article on The Pittsburgh Autism Society's advocation of guardianship, abuse and socialism, we received several emails, all of which were positive concerning the use of guardianship, abuse that results everytime from it and well as other issues in Pittsburgh and the state of Pennsylvania.
What we learned was obvious, Pennsylvania, like Most of the Northeast is corrupt, Democrat run and evil. Jobs are scarce, crime is rampant yet the far left is in denial of this and blames everything on the victims of their socialist policies.
My name is Lynda. I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome after I was laid off from my job and unemployed for almost a year. Its hard to find work in the Pittsburgh area because of high unemployment! All the jobs are being sent overseas but my parents blame me for it! They had be put on guardianship after the doctor said I was to blame for my unemployment. HE EVEN SAID IT WAS MY FAULT I WAS LAID OFF!! JEEZ! HOW IS THAT? I MEAN BUSINESS IS BAD, THE EMPLOYER HAD TO CUT BACK! IT WAS 5 OF US LAID OFF NONE OF THE OTHER FOUR WERE LABELED! My mom says the reason I can't find work is because I'm as dumb as a rock and have the social skills of a rock. Well, now I'm not allowed to leave Pittsburgh, I;m forced to live in a group home and I'm not allowed to go outside without supervision. I only was able to get this out by sneaking out of the group home to go to the library. They'll probably catch me and put me in an institution for telling on them. I hate it here! Pittsburgh is a dump! No jobs, no housing, there's nothing to do! I want to move out someplace better but they wont let me!
Pittsburgh is a deindustrialized city that suffers from high poverty rats, high crime and homelessness as a result of unemployment, government corruption, Democrat tyranny and so on. Liberals in Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh do not see this and consider Pittsburgh to be a fine place to find work and live in. As for those who cannot find work and a place to live, they brand them incompetents, losers and bums. Many of them are also diagnosed as being retarded or mentally ill, mostly as having Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism and mental illness.
The Pittsburgh Autism society considers those who are unemployed as idiots and as such in need of guardianship which deprives them of liberty and freedom as well as making sure that they never ever get a job or a place of their own.
Many of our emails came from not only former residents of the poverty pit of Pittsburgh but from victims of the Autism advocates and their demand for an end to freedom. The email we present comes from on person who nearly had his life destroyed by people and was forced to run away while a minor to escape Pittsburgh and to escape guardianship.
Here sharing his testimony, is Victor Pietri, who now lives in Las Vegas.
My name is Victor Pietri, I'm 31 years old and live in Las Vegas Nevada. I used to live in Pittsburgh. I was born and raised in Binghampton NY but we moved out to the Pits when I was 12.
I had trouble adjusting and didn't make very many friends but I managed. I guess the other reason they thought I was retarded with Asperger's syndrome was because as my shrink said I had restricted interests. I don't agree. I mean I like doing a lot of things like Tennis, golf, Video games, D&D, going to church, culinary arts, suring the web, reading books, travel, geography, ETC. But the shrink thought that wasn't enough and my parents just agreed with them without even a peep! WTF?
I used to do allot of things before my parents started buying into this crap. It began when I was 15. They took me to a doctor because my teacher thought it would help me socialize better, the quack I don't remember his name but he said nothing good about me. Said I was screwed up in the head.
The reason behind this was just for two reasons: One, not enough friends, two, restricted interests. Well that and maybe I was a bit awkward growing up but so are a lot of kids! Every kid is different! But the doctor wanted to craft it into a mental disorder. Asperger's syndrome they called it. I mean it sounds like A** Burger and its worse than that. It means your head is screwed up and your not gonna be anything. That's exactly what pop told me after the visit.
The worst part of it was the meds they gave me. I don't remember what it was but all those pills made me worse. I wasn't crazy and screwed up before but I was after. I went from getting Bs and Cs to Ds and Fs, I went from good to bad, I was really clumsy, couldn't pay attention, when I told the doctor he didn't really care. He just gave me more pills to pop. Made me sluggish sometimes agitated sometime.
The worst came when they brought up guardianship at a doctors meeting that having a legal guardian would be good for me if something happened to my parents or if something happened to me. Like what? having my rights taken away from me and made a slave of the state or abusive relatives?
They weren't very kind about it neither. This happened just after I turned 16. I decided enough is enough and ran away. I lied about my age and was able to get a greyhound ticket that'd get me as far as Denver. Then I hitchhiked from Denver to Wyoming and rode the rails in to Sacramento. I lived there for awhile as a runaway then Los Angeles. When I turned 18, I got my GED and did some odd jobs here and there. I later moved to Las Vegas where I live right now.
My parents tried to get the guardianship over me but failed to do so when they found out that I had a GED, was working and living on my own. They were pissed. They told me that I wasn't allowed back up there anymore until I agreed to at least go back into treatment. They weren't nice so I know I made the right choice of running away.
This whole guardian schtick is nothing but pure communism. Pure BS too. I mean I read the article case for guardianship and it was just top to bottom B*** S**T! I mean P-U!
I mean look at these people they describe, some nut chasing kids on a bike, touching a policeman's gun! I WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT! My neighbor has a dog that barks all the time I don't go shouting at it!
And what the hell is an autism thought loop!? I don't threaten people! So I must not have Asperger's then!! If this is what dolts on ASperger's are like then count me out!
Also the other one, most people I know on SSI live on less than a dollar a day! So much for that!
You may need a whole pound of prevention to avoid these actual scenarios! REALLY!?
And look at what it says at the bottom how they rationalize...
Everyone needs help sometimes. You are an intelligent person and you
have always been really smart about coming to me to ask about things
like doctor’s visits and job applications. Let’s make sure that no
matter where you live or what you do, that I can always help you with
things like that.
First of all, they aren't considered intelligent if they need a guardian. And second of all, they can't live where they want or do what they want once you have guardianship. And its not about help its about harm.
My parents never brought it up that way. They all told me that I was stupid, I was an idiot and that they didn't want me to live outside of Pennsylvania or Pittsburgh. There wasn't anything nice about it at all. they just told me that I was too stupid to take care of myself just because some quack said so.
There really isn't any such thing as Asperger's. These people are either undisciplined, hyper, spoiled or are loose. That and a lot of them are shy and are reclusive. Its all because of bad parenting. Don't blame me for why my parents suck. I didn't do anything wrong, I was always responsible, didn't make excuses or nothing. I am now independent and free.
