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.”
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.”

“$80,0000,000 not going to local businesses, or paying of workers debt. Don't forget to add the indirect layoffs of contractors and local businesses and the cost to communities around national parks.
Once it is all over it is possible that all government workers will get back pay but local business won't.”

“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.
-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.”
Women initiate the majority of divorces. (67%)
Women receive the primary asset-- the children.(85%)
Women receive compensation from the MEN they divorce. (93% $32Billion per year)”

“My ex makes six figures. She divorced me to be with her lover whom she met where she worked. Said she "loved me but not in love with me." Since I made more than her at the time, I had to negotiate with money to get half physical custody of my kids. "War on Women"? Not in this case.”

“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. If the husband is the breadwinner---or makes substantially more---than marriage is bad for MEN. Gone are the days of wives being automatic housewives. Even well off men want them to work.
Irregardless of which way, that's what pre-nups are for.”

“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.

“Your argument is a propositional fallacy. A fallacy in logic... perhaps you can educate yourself and present it again.
The bill is a bad bill. It is racist, sexist, and bigoted. It does not help women, it abuses funds, pays some shelter managers over $300,000 per year with no accountability to help abused women. Its a Billion dollar money grab with a disingenuous name.

“Go Educate yourself on Current Laws and Penalties. That appears to be one of the smoke screens being used by the authors you quote. Most especially the last quotation. That one is ludicrous.
As for, "continues to use overly broad definitions of domestic violence"... This is State Law. Why are these "Concerned Women Of America" suddenly finding the State Law inadequate? If they have a problem with the wording they need to start at the State level, not on Tribal Lands.”
“Your 'polls' must have also missed these women-hater groups...
We call for the language of the Act to reflect the need for culturally-sensitive services and programs. Additionally, we request that VAWA-funded programs and services be delivered in a culturally appropriate manner.
We believe that VAWA encourages violations of the constitutional right to due process. We ask equal protection under the law and prosecution of such criminal acts as suborning perjury or making false allegations of domestic violence. We urge the restoration of all necessary safeguards to prevent wrongful prosecution.
