not that i agree with what they are doing. and she/they are both deluding themselves into thinking it isn't cheating or it's okay b/c there wasn't anything else. it keeps happening and they're sharing an intimacy they don't w/ their spouses. this is a major problem that she's trying to paint as just a small, little thing. it isn't.”

“SON: Dad how do I become rich and powerful?

DAD: Well son, all you have to do is create "non essential" jobs with taxpayers money and have them vote to keep you in power.

SON: But what if someone exposes these "non-essential" jobs by creating a government shutdown?

DAD: No worries son, that would rarely happen, and if it did, you could count on the media to create an enormous sense of EMERGENCY and DISPEAR which would make any exposure very short lived.

SON: Thanks DAD! Your the best!”

“Look at the size of your heart!!! I mean how do you manage to keep it inside your chest? You care so much about others that you deserve the nobel peace prize for being a complete Jerk. Im sorry if you care nothing about those who live in the world around you, it must be quite a burden. One day you will be met with such ignorance and disgust that you show here and when you do remember that what comes around goes around. I hope you have too much pride to ask for help and hit rock bottom before you do. Life will teach you a lesson about those that you make fun of now.”

“The percentages speak for themselves. Child support and/or Alimony travel in virtually one direction; FROM men TO women.

Pre-nups have no standing in family court when it comes to child support, which is routinely used as an end-around to alimony.

Child Support:
-NON TAXABLE.
-Requires NO accountability.
-Not reported as income.

4 kids, 4 dads. Thousands per month in child support, while still eligible for FULL government aid, housing, food, and phone because the support is NOT counted as income... Just simply not a good contract.”

“It's not the gender so much as the finances. If the wife is the breadwinner--I was one of them---then marriage is bad for WOMEN.

“Women are realizing the soulless reality of working and spending in America. Did any press report, email, letter, or correspondence make one centimeter of a difference in the world? Could not almost any other smart educated ambitious person done your job? Is not someone doing it now? How about the magnanimous personal sacrifices you were expected to give, while getting virtual crumbs of appreciation in return?

THIS is the corporate world of today, yesterday and the future. Men have been fighting and dying at these gates for centuries. And because an infinitesimal few have gotten through, women now want to add their bodies and minds to the pile?

Congratulations for getting off the baseless treadmill. Good luck.
