Joe, my brother, know this:

Should I prevail in my race for president-elect of the "dedicated to truth" American Polygraph Association, upon my swearing in, I will immediately call for a full investigation into the situation you have so aptly described.

I promise you, Joe, the business meeting -- and banquet --  at the APA national shindig in Baltimore will be nothing like they have ever seen.

We need to call out the fakers and opportuni$t$.

On top of that, should I win, your plight will be the focus of my initial column in the APA magazine -- and many more columns over the next three years.

Whoever your lieguy# torturer is, that person will be found out -- and dealt with accordingly.

Ya know, a few questions have been bouncing around in my head all day.  I would really like for the persons, or person, who has been posting as lieguy to answer, but anyone else is welcome to chime in.

We had lieguytoo, lieguy8, and now lieguy9, what happened to 3-7?  I mean we are just a wee out of sequence aren't we? 

Also, this seems like a harsh escalation of hostility.  Never have I shown this level of hostility, where it crossed over into stalking.  What, I wonder, is the point where some crossed a line in their bad addled brains, which made them think this is ok?

Lastly, What is the endgame in all of this?  What does this person really hope to accomplish?

Just a wee more then a few questions which has been rolling around in the brain all day

I waz going to knock.

This is better. 

Did she kick you out?

Not making enough to keep her happy?

It'll only get worse.

Do the right thing.

We already know you tried.

Maybe you'll get it right next time.

Aye, you should have knocked.  We could have gone down the street for wings and talk it out.  As usual, you people choose the cowards way out.  Uhg how typical.

For a group of big bad Texans, you sure seem scared of looking an insignificant yankee in the eye; or maybe, I'm not all that insignificant.  You people are spending a lot of time and effort trying to intimidate me.

So what is the plan, to troll me into having a "falling down" moment?  Ugh, when will you people learn that this is simply not going to happen.  All the years people were predicting this outcome, and it simply hasn't happened.  One would think you people would have got the idea by now.  Moreover, and with all due respect, I'm not the one stalking you till all the wee hours of the day and night.  Seems the only people who are most likely to engage in such a dangerous and violent scenario would be whomever is doing this from TAPE. 

Sorry, just calling it how I see it.  TAPE will deny it, but they denied lieguytoo also, so their credibility in this area, is nonexistent if one were to look at their history of involvement in using tis tactic.

Are you hoping I will feel threatened, and hurt someone in self defense?  Is that really something you want?  There is no way either of us come out the winner on that scenario; surely you must see this. If not, please seek professional help.

Or, from what you seem to allude, you want me to do something harmful to myself.  How do you think that makes you look?

In any case, an awful lot of trouble and effort seems to be put into silence me, either by, encouraging me to harm myself or others.  This seems silly, when the solution is much easier, and frankly, more beneficial, to all concerned. 

Anyway, I must have said something right for someone to go through such great efforts to intimidate me; wish I knew what, exactly it was.

Can I make a suggestion?  Next time, knock.  If nothing else, ya get a free meal out of it, and no one gets hurt.  How is that bad?

Ok update

It seems that lieguy8, learned from lieguytoo.  The IP, address, I am told goes back to the TOR network.  I guess chimps do learn from others mistakes. 

Also I have been asked not to post addresses here.  This is not an unreasonable request. Too bad, because Maria seemed to have three in one town, all at the same time.  Clayton is rather unremarkable, little county Road, but I'm sure he would have not appreciated the feeling that I had when I suddenly realized people know where me and my family live.  I'm sure they now can empathize with how I feel that one of their members or maybe even themselves put them in that position.

I am so sick of this.  Moreover I am sick of an industry that protects people lie lieguy8.  but then this is how it has been for 8 years.  TAPE and their unethical members within their establishment get protected, while I am told to curl up in a ball and pray they leave me alone.

I have addressed that I was afraid this would get to a point where someone would get hurt, not only this John Rios of TAPE, but also with two bigger organizations.  In all cases, my concerns were met with dismissal and minimizing.  Now things have gone too far, one or a group of these Texas chimps are now stalking me and making threats on the open internet, hiding like the cowards I always knew they were.

Nothing will be done until something happens to me, or if I see it coming, something bad happens to the stupid idiot that choose to take his or her life into their own hands. Either way, the blood will be on the hands of the industry that can't control it's violent members, but they'll try to scare someone who is telling the truth from wanting to say a word. 

Here is how this is going to go.  The threats will be ignored, minimized, and dismissed by the industry.  While members of the industry in Texas are engaging in terroristic threats and stalking, I will be disciplined for even talking about it here.  Of course what will be ignored is all the times I asked for intervention in the past before someone got hurt and my concerns were dismissed. 

Fact is, the only time the industry will care, is when one of the Texas examiners who's engaging in this activity, follows up on his or her threats, and then the industry leaders will say, "we had no idea it has got so bad in Texas"

Because that is what the industry has been good at.  Ignoring what is done here in Texas, and protecting people like Maria and the rest of the establishment.  It's much easier to blame the person exposing this groups unethical BS, than it is to address the unethical group. 

This has gone too far now.  I draw the line at being stalked and then my life threatened.

OK, in reference to the post from this link

I have to admit, I am pretty conflicted how to respond to this one, or to a group of examiners posting my home on this message board, on another string. 

I also can't say I am really comfortable with the thought that someone has been clearly following me to my office, as one can see with the street names listed on the above linked post. I find it a wee unnerving that I am actually being stalked, and that the only likely pool of suspects, includes current or former law enforcement. 

So how am I to respond?  I have put great thought into this, and I think, what someone in TAPE is hoping for, is that I take proactive measures and make the first physical move.  I am not the only one who has voiced this theory. 

Fact is, the way this has escalated over the years, and in the past year, TAPE, and establishment examiners within TAPE, have gotten away with every unethical and illegal thing that has been done. If one were to look at the post linked above, and the post someone made earlier this year, they are far more likely to act out violently than I am.  This is obvious, I am being stalked.  They posted my home and my travel route to work.  How should this make me feel safe?

Is that what it's going to take?  Is it going to take one of these chuckleheads to actually do something stupid, thinking they'll get away with it?  Only to have people at the top of the industry to say, "we had no idea it was going to come to this." 

The industry is in denial.  The professional organizations are in denial.  Of course even if they did ask, I would only hear something lame like, "we asked everyone and they denied it."  Yea ask Noah Webster, TAPE's lawyer during the lawsuit, how that works.  Because that is what they told him until we got the identity to lieguytoo, who was a officer of TAPE, was discovered.  They all denied it to him too. Lied straight to his face; until the subpoena came back.  Oh and BTW, know why I have no trust in the justice system with this?  Judge Evans let the people involved get away with that incident too. 

This has been the past 8 years of my life.  TAPE, and the bad actors within, get a pass; while I get practically hung financially, emotionally, and brought before ethics committees, for telling the truth, and about Maria and TAPE's BS and outright lies.  Hell, I'll probably be brought up for an ethics complaint, just for posting this. 

Fact is, if I tried to address this privately, I would be ignored; and my concerns would be belittled and marginalized.  Just as my concerns have in the past.  I'm sure I'll get into trouble for saying that too, but that has been happening.  The industry would rather wait for something to actually happen to me, then they will pretend they were concerned.  Even my wife has seen the indifference within the industry to question these people's actions or intent.  She's never seen anything like it. 

Fact is, not one person, other than Dan Megan, has shown any concern for my life and safety.  He has even offered a cash reward for answers.  Even with the disagreements we have, he offered to pay his own cash money for answers; the industry is building the wall of silence and indifference.  The one examiner who is trying to actively destroy the polygraph industry, cares more than people who claim to want to protect the integrity of this industry.  If something were to happen to me, people in the industry would care more about sweeping this under the rug, than any thought that they did nothing to try to stop it.  Shame on all of you. 

The industry needs to reel these people in down here in Texas in somehow, before someone gets hurt.  I am begging for intervention before I take the next step to respond to the post on the APA election thread.  And here is my response.

I will be posting the home addresses as well, and I will start at the top.  What's good for the goose, is good for the gander.  Someone knows something, and I want who this was so they can be held responsible and accountable.  Someone took this way too far.  I draw the line at stalking me and posting my home and my movements (phrasing).  Now that someone in TAPE took it to that line, and I don't hear TAPE condemning it, I assume, posting home addresses is now acceptable.  It's something I don't want to do, and I wish there were better options.  Having said that, TAPE and Maria Hubbard are writing the rules. 

My war has always been a war of words and of the truth.  Theirs is now a war of stalking and threats of violence.  How far is the industry really willing to let this go before something really bad happens? 

Isn't stalking and threatening someone enough for you people to start becoming concerned?  Or do you people want to get the popcorn and see if lieguy8 will have a "falling down moment."

Dan, have you forgot that I posted the Dansby decisions a long time ago, and the internal email from Kelly Hendricks to Maria Hubbard and others on the JPCOT committee about how they tried to find a way around it. 

I have always made it clear my position in regard to History tests and the 5th Amendment. 

I also do a lot of work down here, with attorneys in Texas, who have led the charge for 5th amendment issues.

Here is the rub.  Just because they can claim 5th amendment, does't mean they can't keep making them retake the tests till it is passed to the care providers and PO's satisfaction.  That is how a lot of conditions are written. 

Also, while I will admit some of my problem with texas, and the dishonest examiners in Texas, is about that I do deserve a level of justice.  I will also clarify, that I believe that we in the polygraph industry should be subject to our own tests in controversies where tests can help solve the issue.  Also we should be holding ourselves to a higher standard in regard to honesty in and about how we do business. 

Lastly, if the examiners want to fight this war with lies, I will fight it with the truth.  Every time they lie and get caught in their lies, they make the industry look bad. They will say I make the industry look bad by exposing the lies to the public; but this is the choice the industry makes when they choose to ignore the issue, rather than handle it.  The liars in the industry make the industry look bad; by me calling the liars, like Maria Hubbard, Andy Sheppard, Richard Wood, etc etc, to the plate, I am trying to promote honestly and integrity within the industry, by demanding the industry do something about dishonest people, promoting "lie detector"  (I hate that term) tests.  If the industry chooses to ignore the issue, over address it, that is on them; and they should think about how it appears to the general public when it is not addressed. 

I think as an industry we are better than this, and deep down, the industry, outside the State of Texas wants this issue done.  In fact, I have been told last year, at APA, that they do the the issue in Texas done and finished; I agree with them.

However, Maria Hubbard, and the Texas Assocation of Polygraph Examiners, seems to want to hold on to this war.  Think about it, even Rick Holden wants it behind us; and to his credit, and I say this with a great amount of respect, he has kept his word, and I will keep mine with him.  I take my handshake and my word seriously. I am always square with my actions in regard to agreements made on a handshake, and in good faith. I only expect the same in return; and again, Holden has been square with his word.

The others in Texas should take a lesson there; but they are so wrapped around hating me, their hate blinds good decision making.  This can be all done tomorrow, and all quiet again, they choose to keep it all going.  My choice is to put the swords away and my actions in the past prove it.  Maria and TAPE are the instigators keeping this going; their past at ions prove that.

Now, working on my advice to texas examines; which will be pated soon.  I will be addressing Dansby and the 5th Amendment within that text.

Joe, my brother, let's get real.

The polygraph indu$try doesn't give a flying fornication about your travails in the great state of Texas.

From what I've observed, the "dedicated to truth" polygraph indu$try cares mostly about one thing: MONEY -- as in filthy lucre.

You want justice?

Forget about it.

IMHO, in the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls.

Expect nothing from the indu$try, because that's exactly what you'll get. Zero. Zilch. Nada.


Also, Joe, as a PCSOT specialist, please tell us what you think of this "revoltin' development"....

Ok, update.

One the the things I hear a lot within the industry is, Hold on let me look for the best quote in my emails;

"This is an issue for the courts to handle; not for the industry, or you going public."

That was a comment made in confidence, so I am not attaching a name to it;  I want to respect that confidence.

Anyway, I have had a great lawyers look over this issue, the evidence, footage and documents gathered.  The general consensus is, defamation is a very difficult, if not, damn near impossible in Texas.  Basically, her lies, no matter how damaging, are not cause of action enough.

SO, because the industry itself refuses to put a leash on their 500 pound gorilla in the room; and the Texas Association of Polygraph Examiners wants to use their bylaws as "guidelines", and choose selective and unfair tactics of enforcement and trying accusations, all I am left with is combating her public lies with the truth. 

Now what is really sad is, while Maria and TAPE are allowed to do, whatever they want, with impunity, I am apparently held to a higher standard; because while it is ok to defame me publicly, it seems that me defending myself with the truth is a capital offense.  This confuses me, that the truth means less than lies, because the truth is about people the polygraph industry likes and doesn't want to admit that they are doing anything wrong; because to do so would mean that people in the inner circle of the industry in Texas are corrupt and dishonest people.  I can see why this would be a hard thing for the industry to swallow.   

Irregardless (as we say back home), this does not negate the truth.

So, here is what is going to happen.  Because the industry either can't, or won't handle this internally, ya know like they said it should have been, on Polygraph Place; I am left with, literally no other option to handle this issue here and in marketing campaigns to get the DOCUMENTED TRUTH out.

Unlike what people in the industry will say, this is not my first option; and anyone who does say that, I challenge them to look me in the eye and say it while reading emails of me begging for industry intervention, so this got kept behind closed door.  All and all, what I am saying is, any examiner who says that AP was my first choice and that I want to be here, is either misinformed, or a liar; depending on who they are. 

I just hope when Maria or TAPE complains, the industry tells them the same thing I am told, "this is an issue to be handled in the courts, not within the industry."

From here on out, every time these people lie about me, I will combat it with the truth.   

I also hope that industry trade organizations, remember that the FTC, is not happy when trade organizations use power to silence competitors from truthful public criticism of other competitors though the use of what has been deemed as unlawful bylaws. 

More to come after audio and video is reviewed by my lawyers. 

Maria and TAPE want to make this a public war, so be it.  They had their chance to move on, they chose otherwise. 

If they want to say I am lying or defaming them, YOU FILE, if you can find a lawyer that will take it.  It is more cost effective for me to defend a suit anyway.  Oh and remember, I saved everything; so if you want to claim that your own documents, video, and audio, are lies; I wish you the best of luck. 

So, lets get on with the fight. Shall we?

Joe, the bully pulpit is not the BOD's to hand over.

The bully pulpit will be what I make of the street cred (i.e., exploitation) that comes with holding the successive offices of APA president-elect, president, and chairman of the board.

Combined, I'll have a full three-year window to rewrite the APA narrative about polygraph by exposing the truth about the risks, realities and limitations of the "test" --as well as revealing the machinations behind the APA's "Meta-Analytic Survey of Criterion Accuracy of Validated Polygraph Techniques," which claims a whopping 89% accuracy for specific-issue exams and 85% accuracy for multiple-issue polygraphs. (Those claims are unrealistic, in my opinion.)

That three-year window translates to a lot of columns in the APA magazine, assorted print-media articles, timely and relevant talk-radio interviews, and possibly appearances on television.

Forgive my slow response, I have been weighing options, and decisions will come very soon.  In the meantime, I will continue to defend against Maria's lies with the truth. 

It should be noted that defending myself from the lies of TAPE and Ms. Hubbard, is being done at great professional risk.  It seems telling the truth about the Texas polygraph industry is a risky proposition.

Ark, to the best of my knowledge, Joe does not belong to the APA.

However, he should. The organization would benefit greatly from Joe McCarthy -- and many more like him.

I agree that his presence in the 2016 APA elections would help shake things up.

Meanwhile, I am hopeful that we will see a good showing of outsider candidates for ALL open positions this time around, but especially for the office of president-elect.

Women, minorities, and non-WASP members would bring some much-needed balance to the APA board of directors.

It's time to break the back of the traditional good 'ol boy APA establishment.

I may show up to APA, if for nothing else but to see that the earlier listed complaint made it to the ethics committee, offer my two cents (if allowed.  If not I understand, after all I am not a member), and hopefully see that she is at the very least admonished for her poor behavior, in front of children and conduct unbecoming a committee member; something.

At best, I do not want to bring critical mass, I want to encourage homeostasis.  While Maria and TAPE seem to favor a prolonged war, my actions have shown that I favor everyone putting swords away and going home. 

Everyone was prepared for the worst at last years APA, including myself, and we all proved to one another that we can be decent to each other; with the exception of maria.  Even the Holden's and I shook and called it quits.  A peace, that to my knowledge, has not been broken.  So much for me being the instigator huh?

In fact, I would hope that the APA would want to get everyone in the same room, and iron this out before it gets out of hand.  While I understand the APA' s positions that they have no jurisdiction, lets face it, the APA is very influential.  Given that the current president and the president elect are from Texas, you would think they have a small versed interest in a peaceful Texas market.  NOTE: I know both the current president and president elect to be good men.  I respect them both and would prefer not to engage in any negative discussions about either man. 

If I do go to APA this year, I will entertain membership, no matter what the outcome of any outside issues. 

As far as office goes, Dan and I have similar points of view over a couple issues, but different approaches in regard to fixing them.  Moreover, any position I may or may not hold in the future, comes with, checks, balances, and restraints of power; AS IT SHOULD BE. 

As an officer, I would be elected to be fair, independent, and unbiased; on the side of the truth, making the industry better, and improving polygraph to ALL who come into contact with it. 

The stand point of bringing polygraph down from within will change nothing and cause more angst and animosity, in a profession which seems to have enough already.

While I will agree that consumer/examinee proaction does need to be reviewed and given more focus, I do not think that Dan's approach will achieve much without a board of directors willing to hand him the bully pulpit he desires. 

The changes that do need to be made, should be made because people know that the changes are necessary to show the public that we can govern ourselves responsibly.  I strongly believe that this app rock is needed to prevent another EPPA, which even a few big names in the industry have agreed is inevitable, if this industry down't get our shit together.

I do feel that PCSOT needs to have more teeth, to make sure anyone APA PCSOT follow the rules set by the APA.  Either that or encourage states to codify APA and or  JPCOT guidelines, so as to take licensing and enforcement out of the private sector totally, leaving only in place the ability to instruct and advice with new updates of the law that support research. 

Right now, there are lots of people getting improper PCSOT tests, but because PCSOT is not addresses in polygraph law, and the APA is, for the most part a "toothless organization"  (not my words), It leaves the consumer/examinee no recourse to complain. 

I also think that bylaws need to be passed, similar to that of the AAPP and the Arizona Polygraph Examiners Association, in regard to the use of polygraph during ethics  investigations, where appropriate and needed.  If we, as an industry, expect the consumer to buy the product we sell, should we not make an example, and show the consumer, that we use the test we sell, to help solve our own problems from within?

I know examiners disagree with me, but we look pretty arrogant when we say it's good enough for everyone else, but nor for us. 

Now, where Dan and I agree a lot on, with what is said above, we do need balanced leadership.  But that is really a matter of the people stepping up to run, and then the members having the right to vote.  Sorry, as with any election, it is about the vote.  We have learned that lesson over the past 12 to 16 years of political division in this county. 

I also agree that the old ole boy system needs to go.  Problem is, once you oust one good ole boy club, another will form and take the place of the outgoing one.  Checks and balances need to be explored. 

My gripe is with TAPE and Maria for the most part.  My only gripe with the industry, is it's unwillingness to step in and use the influence it has, to make sure that even state agencies don't act in a manner that puts forth an appearance of impropriety.  Sorry I feel if I had the right to seek remedy within the industry with the TAPE issue back in 2010, I strongly believe none of the past two years would have been necessary.

Now, let me say something good about the APA; something they did right.

The antitrust policies and statement which were put forward by the APA recently, was a good move on the part of the organization.  If only TAPE and other organizations would ask the APA why it was done, and should they follow suit.  But hey, the FTC will eventually catch up to that.  It's only a matter of time, especially for TAPE...

In a nutshell, the Krackin people see me as, only comes to the surface when it is time for a fight.  The rest of the time, I am shockingly reasonable, and very flexible.  I am the easiest person in the world to talk to as long as reason is a two way street.  In the end, I would rather see the right thing done, over what is right for me; because sometimes I am wrong.  When that happens, I admit it, but when I am right, I'll fight for that of which I believe.

Now, back to sorting through the documents and data I have received recently in regard to current issues in Texas.  Hope everyone has a good night.

Here is some interesting email exchanges between me and TAPE leadership in 2010, you know, when Maria Hubbard says I was "kicked" or "Voted out."

As you can clearly see, Maria's email address in distribution of these emails.  Therefore, whenever she tells someone, I was kicked or voted out due to ethics issues, you can actually see the ethics issues, where their own.

On Page 7, there is important information.  Stewart Ervin says in his email, "The Board of Directors, already decided the issue and it would go up for membership vote." 

Back then, and NOW, the bylaws have a specific manner of due process, that as one can easily see, I was never afforded.  This is the reason, as one can see, that I resigned; other than I was not going to stand in front of a kangaroo court.

Interesting note there.  John Rios, and Jack St. John both told me in 2014, that no Board of Directors Vote occurred.  Mike Chimeras told me the same thing in another conversation.  So, Stuart Eivin obtained my resignation through FRAUD.  Either that, or John Rios, Jack St. John, and Mike Chimeras lied to me; this is possible too.

Isn't it funny, that when dealing with the Texas Association of Polygraph Examiners, Ya just never really know who is lying to you.  Shouldn't we expect better than that from our leaders?  I still don't know who is telling the truth.  But we do know that either Stuart, Mike, John, or Jack, are certainly lying.  Maybe they will enlighten us who it may be.  What do ya say guys, wanna tell the class who is lying?   

Oooooo, better idea, lets line them up outside the polygraph room door and test them.  Someone is lying, and someone is telling the truth.  None of them will have the guts, so I guess we just assume, all of them played their part and are lying to some degree or another.  In any regard, what does this say to their credibility as polygraph examiners?  Interesting question huh?

And now that we have proven, without a doubt, that I was not dismissed form TAPE, and in fact, I was forced to resign because the cards were staked; this blows Maria Hubbard's credibility out of the water as well. 

Why would any probation or parole department, any treatment provider, any lawyer, or any private person, use the services of a polygraph examiner, who would so blatantly lie?  This does make her quite impeachable in testimony, doesn't it?  Oh don't worry, I have other documented cases where she has blatantly lied.  I am sure once her divorce is over, we will be enlightened in even more cases. 

Every lie of theirs is going to be exposed and more. 

The best part is, I will use their own communications pictures, video, and documentation against them. 

Hey, this is the game Maria choose to play for ya.  You can thank her anytime.  Or you can tell me you want no part in it.

NOTE:  These emails are not all inclusive, there are far more, these are just the documents that love Maria has a problem with the truth in regard to my departure from TAPE.  There will be more to come.

Also, it should be noted, that the resignation has Holden's name and the name of his company.  This was written back in 2010, and since, as we all know, Holden and I have come to a peace.  Mr. Holden has acted honorably, and I no longer have anything negative to say about Eric or Jay.  They are both good men who have kept their word and acted like honorable gentleman.  I apologize in advance to them for this document, but it is needed to illustrate Hubbard's lies.

Now having said all that, here is what's going to happen.  Maria will start crying, yelling, screaming, and melting down, to NPA, APA, or anyone else who will listen, claiming to be a "victim", when she clearly picked this fight.  What's really sad is, very few people will have the guts to look her in the eye and tell her, "you brought it on yourself.... Everything was nice and quiet, and then you decided to pick a fight.  You're on your own, we will no longer be your weapons or your savior."

Because that is what she does.  She can't fight her own battles with facts, so she expects others to fight for her, and she expects people to use her LIES.

Bullies typically will hide behind others.

Based on my own experience, I'd say that is absolutely true.

Dan, I wouldn't even waste my time with talking with the TAPE crowd.  Not much they say at this point can be believed; and just about anything they say about me, I can shoot down with their own emails documents and video.  I have real interesting footage from a conference we had once in San Antonio. 

Anyway, I think what they are scared of, they've been working of a fiefdom system (Don Ramsey's description of the Texas Market, not mine) for so long, if they actually had to compete in an American Capitalist free Market, it would kill their income. 

Also if there will people checking behind them, examinees demanding charts, and lawyers asking the right questions, shit would really hit the fan in some counties.  Then TDLR codifying JPCOT, as it stands, so they have to follow those rules by LAW.  Oh the indignity of it all. 

Of course, I am not sure if TDLR knows that there is a regulatory commission that isn't answerable to the Governor or the voters of Texas

In a nutshell, what they are scared of most, is me turning Texas into an honest business market; them losing all regulatory power and credibility; and competing honestly, with honest examiners. 

Because I am the only examiner to stand up to the establishment, I am the one they fear.  Everyone else is either capitulant to the fiefdom system, or are not seen as a legitimate threat.  Sorry, I call it like I see it or it is. 

As far as Maria and company being dedicated to the truth; how can they be, they are either afraid of or don't believe in the very test they sell.  AND THAT IS A FACT, as one can plainly see in their refusal to settle the issue though repeated testing requests.  I mean seriously, I haven't seen southern people run so fast since I watched Forest Gump last.

Run Maria run............  lol

OK people, time out.

This shit has gone on for far too long.

If what Joe says is true -- and I don't doubt him for a New York minute  -- it appears that some overenthusiastic TX polygraph industry operatives fucked with the wrong guy.

The obvious question is this: Why do these people want to take Joe McCarthy down?

Are they not "dedicated to truth"?

I relish confronting the Texas contingent about this very issue at the APA's national seminar this September in Baltimore.

Yes, I will be there.

Hey, maybe it's all one big misunderstanding.

Or not.

Let's find out.

Like I said, this has been going on for years.  This time, she was stupid enough to do it in front of someone who isn't scared of her, and a bunch of witnesses. 

And you're kidding right, over the hat?  It's not even the same hat.  I, like any self respecting Boston Irishman, wear a scally cap.  It's the "old man" hat of the Irish.... lol

Now that spring is hear and sunburn season has started, time to avoid that whole separate definition of pain.  lol

Oh also, I don't get the bird thing.  Did it at least talk?  lol

If your integrity is under attack, then you should stand up for yourself, especially if it cuts into your livelihood. Defamation requires that you prove you were defamed, so, data collection would be wise.

I guess I'm a bit older than you Joe:

I would say that you have a good point, here is the problem.  This has been an ongoing issue for years, only this time, someone had the guts to document it.  She also tried to pass off out right lies when she tried to pull off the stunt in 2014.  If I don't force this to come to a stop, it won't.   

It's about my integrity, yes, but when it is said that I was kicked out of TAPE, people assume I did something unethical, and I have never done anything "unethical".  Unless one considers blowing the whistle on their unethical and anticompetitive practices "unethical".  Everything that comes out of this woman's mouth about me is an outright, and intentional lie.  And it's time for me to take a stand and not back down this time, until the slander and anticompetitive behavior stops.  I gave it a chance, and she blew it; now it's time to take the next step.

People need to understand, this is not fun for me.  I would rather be competing for business on a level playing field, in an open market, where we compete on the quality of our work; not lies, dishonesty and anticompetitive tactics. 

It does make me ask this question.  What is it that they are so afraid of about me, that they feel this is necessary to compete?  I can tell you my opinion, but I am a wee biased there. 

If they were forced to tell the truth, it would end many of them; including the current president of TAPE and Maria.  But I am not asking for them to do that.  I am just demanding that they stop lying and we can all go back to business. 

Their behavior is counter productive to an open market, but productive to close the market from someone wanting to fairly compete. 

This, frankly, can be cleared up tomorrow with TAPE.  If TAPE wishes not to be involved, that can be achieved with one or two phone calls; we have done it before.   Sadly, TAPE went back on their word the day after hands were shook and peace was made.  TAPE chose a 24 hour peace, over a lasting one.  Sorry, those are the facts.

Still in the end, I let that go; and they took that as a sign of weakness in that I will never stand up for myself.  They were mistaken. 

I am capable of and still maintain a pasting peace. 

Here let me give you an example.  I made peace with Holden last year.  Other than this post, any mention of him or behavioral measures?  We made peace put it behind us, he has done and said nothing nor have I.  Unless I get credible evidence otherwise, that is the way it will stay.  I offered my hand, and my word, I stand by both.  I don't even allow anyone to say anything negative about the Holden's in my presence.  When I make a peace and give my word, that is that. 

The only monster here is the 500 pound gorilla in the room. Just when I think all is quiet, she stirs the pot; I am sick of it.  I'd rather not get TAPE involved, and I gave them a chance to at least tell me it would be handled, but I get silence.  Going off past experience, this means, they will allow this behavior from one of their officers, because they support and will cover up the behavior, as they have done in the past. 

So lets not make this seem like I am the bad guy here.  I wouldn't be here, if everyone would just go back to their corners and put the swords away.  My history shows that to be true.  I have kept every promise I made at APA, and my posts here during APA. 

At some point this has to end, and it is apparent the only way that is going to happen is to expose and then take action.  TAPE can be out of this anytime they want, they choose to be involved. 

As Maria goes, she made the choice she made. 

Even now, I am willing to handle this behind closed doors; I am also told, over the course of years that this needs to be handled from within, or through the courts.  No one has made any effort to handle this from within; I am finalizing court options; and to make it so this doesn't get whitewashed, I am making sure it is known that the Texas polygraph establishment cannot be trusted to tell the truth or do the right thing.   The consumer needs to be warned.

If the market knew the truth about these people, I mean really know the truth and listened, no one would every find these people trustworthy again.  Maria Hubbard is a liar and a highly manipulative and vindictive person.  Her behavior, which has now been exposed, bears this out. 

She will accuse me of lying.  I will accuse her of lying.  Fact is, only one of us has stepped up to the plate, and offered to take the test we sell to prove innocence.  The other ran like a rat trying to get off a sinking ship. 

So, whats it going to be?  Do we handle this from within, or do we handle this here and in the courts?  Those are the two options.  I personally pick option one, the industry and Maria likes option two.  There is no more option three.  Because whenever I am kind and reasonable, it seems what others see is the word "doormat"

I do respect what you said and will put a wee more though in it.  You've always been kind to me, and that means a lot. 

Oh, who is Tony Barretta?
