Why I Oppose The Federal Marriage Amendment (12/11/03) [MND]
It's a political case; one that looks, feels, and smells political from top to bottom. It's a proposed solution that looks responsive in a minimalist superficial kind of way; created entirely without delving into the details of the problem it is supposed to address. It does not address the problems that led to the proposal, and it is a course of action that is likely to fail.

The Associated Press: A Case Study in Dishonesty (12/5/03) [MND]
During the early 1990s, it was difficult to identify a specific culprit. A large portion of the old media, newspapers, magazines, and television networks regularly sported "deadbeat dad" stories much like you'd expect the regular appearance of cartoon strips.

Fathers Not Guilty of Child Abuse (12/3/03) [MND]
We've known about it for many years. Even before the old media began debating racial profiling, fathers were under attack.

Fathers' Rights and the Marriage Movement (9/29/03 - 10/9/03) [MND]
MND Roundtable Discussion
Fathers' rights advocates are generally not opposed to marriage. Some would see an anti-father component in a pro-marriage position as contradictory. Nonetheless, in the broad spectrum of political debate, there have been occasional rubs between those who want government to promote marriage and analysts and advocates who have focused on fathers' rights. In an effort to sort things out, MND invited four of the most involved minds to participate in a roundtable discussion on Fathers' Rights and the Marriage Movement.

Fathers Rights? (7/22/03) [MND] [FM]
In defense of family and other fundamental rights.
In "Hounding Baskerville," (National Review 5/13/03) Tom Sylvester (American Values Institute) demonstrates the deepest divisions between activist social conservatism and core American political values. Nowhere are the divisions sharper or more critical than on issues that involve the basic social unit; family.

Divorced Dads: Family Champions (7/15/03) [MND] [FM]
Which came first; children or marriage licenses? The focus of national debate on marriage obscures the critical issue. Family is fundamental. Fathers' rights advocates appear to be the sole champions in the battle for political and legal recognition of the fundamental social unit.

The large lettered full page headlines of the tabloids greeted me as I walked into a local convenience store this morning. Aftonbladet read; "For the first time: HILLARY reveals all on CLINTON'S INFIDELITY with Monica Lewinsky." I chuckled and thought; "Hey, that's like last millennium."

There is No Spoon; (6/3/03) [MND] [FM]
Review of the "Deadbeat Dad" Propaganda Movement
The story of Jason Bryce, who made up stories for the New York Times, caused me to reflect on the "deadbeat dad" propaganda campaign that was especially intense during the early 1990s. The motives and intentional lies in that campaign were much more sinister and led to much greater damage than anything that was likely contemplated by Mr. Bryce. Unlike Mr. Bryce, the "deadbeat dad" propagandists have not yet been exposed by the mainstream media. Their legacy lives on.

Man Dying of Child Support Enforcement (5/30/03) [MND] [FM]
The child support enforcement program is a disease that has probably caused more suffering and death than any other government program. It was introduced by Congress in 1975 and has been engineered into a weapon of mass destruction in the years since. ... Various protests have generally been ignored, even when they are so serious as to cause harm to protesters. Potential danger lies in a particular form of protest; the hunger strike.

Sweden Backs Off U.S.-Style Child Support Reforms: (5/11/03) [MND] [FM]
Government Investigation Reveals Fundamental Flaws
1975-2000 was an era of radical international child support reform, beginning in the United States. Swedish investigation into the effects of U.S.-style child support reform revealed the creation of massive debt and a high percent of fathers forced into poverty. A new government report suggests corrective action. The article below explains why we should not be surprised that Sweden was among the last to fall to radical child support reform arguments and the first to begin the process of restoration; while the U.S. record of reform is an ongoing embarrassment.

Georgia Supreme Court Abolished Human Rights (5/6/03) [MND] [FM]
On April 29th, the Georgia state supreme court issued a decision that dramatically reformulates the relationship between individuals and the state. The state was granted unlimited power to act arbitrarily against individuals. The foremost line of defense, individual rights that are regarded as "unalienable" by the United States Constitution, has in effect been abolished.

Governor Gray Davis: The California Weenie (10/03/02) [MND] [FM] [ESR]

The California legislature passed a bill that would have allowed men to dispute paternity with a DNA test, but Governor Gray Davis vetoed it.

Funny Thing About Illinois Gubernatorial Race (9/26/02) [MND] [FM]
The child support enforcement scam must be at a turning point when the corruption turns into situation comedy. That happened this week in the Illinois race for governor. One of the contestants, Jim Ryan promised to crack down on "deadbeat dads" in a previous successful campaign for Attorney General. Now, his opponent Democrat Rod Blagojevich is doing the same thing to him.

CSE Advocates: The Liar's Club (9/18/02) [MND] [FM]
The legal definition of insanity is (roughly) the inability to distinguish right from wrong. It occurs to me that child support enforcement advocates are building their defense, anticipating the day when this crude con-game will all come crashing down around their pointy little heads.

Virginia Panel Votes to Leave 'Child Support' Undefined (9/16/02) [MND] [FM]
The Virginia Child Support Review Panel is tasked with assuring that use of the state's child support guideline results in appropriate awards. One might think this job impossible if the term "child support" is not defined. That is exactly what panel member Murray Steinberg thought. Mr. Steinberg has been trying since early June to have the panel agree on a definition of "child support."

California: A Kinder Child Support System? (9/12/02) [MND] [FM]
Let me go one better. Give them their licenses back. Forgive the arbitrary debt the government created and set their child support orders to reasonable levels. If the government of California is extremely lucky they won't sue for reparations. As for the people who took their licenses to begin with – no deals. They belong in jail.

Another Man Down in the War Against Fathers (8/22/02) [MND] [FM]
Catalino Morales is one of many canaries in the child support coal mines. Year after year we watch the canaries die yet the workers are not allowed to leave.

Introduction to the Income Shares Child Support Guideline (8/7/02) [MND] [FM] [ISF]

Book Review: (7/24/02) [MND] [FM] [FV]
An indictment of Virginia's child support parenting adjustment
Child Support's Wacky Math is a book about the way that Virginia and other states modify child support orders in consideration of visitation and shared parenting. It promises two things; to prove that the formula is grossly in error, and to show how reality gets lost and logic muddled in the overly political process that now dominates the child support system. It delivers on both promises with room to spare.

Child Support Visitation Credit Gets International Attention (7/4/02) [MND] [FM] [NWV] [FV]
When states began using fixed formulae for determining child support awards, known as child support guidelines, the door was nearly slammed shut on reducing orders in recognition of divided parenting time. Reopening the case on visitation and shared custody credits is the subject of an article in the current quarterly issue of the international journal IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) Forum.

About NOW's Family Court Report (6/27/02) [MND] [FM]
"After significant research," the report begins, "CA NOW finds the present family court system in California to be crippled, incompetent, and corrupt." The media chose to deliver this message from an organization that has no credibility. We should not however falsely conclude that family courts across the country are not crippled and have not been acting in a way that indicates incompetence and corruption.

GAO Involved in "Public-Private Partnership" Scandal (6/11/02) [MND] [FM] [ESR] [NWV]
On March 29th the United States General Accounting Office (GAO) released another in a series of sensational reports on the child support enforcement program. As Arthur Andersen did with Enron, the GAO is playing the dual role of auditor and policy consultant and supporting an untenable position.

A Knight Defending Fatherhood (5/28/02) [MND] [FM] [TGR] [ESR] [NWV] [FV]

Focus: Georgia Child Support Guidelines Declared Unconsitutional
A Return to Welfare As We Knew It? (3/20/02) [MND] [FM] [TGR]
The beginning of the end of child support reform
A Georgia court has declared the state’s child support guidelines unconstitutional. The decision bans the use of a presumptively correct formula that produces arbitrarily high awards, a universal practice in the United States since 1990. The consequences of a nationwide ban could extend well beyond allowing courts to set child support awards at reasonable levels.

Two Part Constitutionality of Child Support Guidelines Debate:
Laura Morgan chairs the Child Support Committee of the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association. When a Georgia court declared their child support guidelines unconstitutional, Laura Morgan responded immediately and with characteristic intensity. She criticized the ruling and promised two articles in rebuttal. The following two articles response to Laura Morgan's arguments. (Links to her articles included.)

Laura Morgan at the Bottom of the Slippery Slope (4/24/02) [MND] [FM]
The child support laws in Georgia were declared unconstitutional for violating due process, equal protection, the right of privacy, and the prohibition stated in the Georgia Constitution against taking property. The decision does not involve the popular political rhetoric that gave rise to the new child support system. It is not a decision, for example, on whether it is right for "fathers to abandon mothers and children." The decision does not interfere with one parent's ability to obtain child support from another or the state's legitimate power to order child support payments.

The Constitutionality of Child Support Guidelines Debate, Part II (5/22/02) [MND] [FM]
Tens of billions of dollars of taxpayers' money has been used as bribery to implement and maintain policies that are blatantly unconstitutional and private businesses have been granted the privilege of siphoning off a significant share of noncustodial parent income. It cannot be emphasized enough that we know, and therefore cannot allow it to continue.

High Child Support Awards (4/22/02) [MND] [FM] [ISF]
Deny Contact between Fathers and Their Children
Even more surprising was that a decade then passed during which the states themselves did not reform their guidelines to provide appropriate visitation credits. Where have all the people gone who had understood how to calculate visitation credits before the federal reforms had taken effect?

Why Child Support Reforms Need Reform (4/09/02) [FM]
The main point is what Haskins' report was not about. It was not about finding the appropriate amount to be awarded in each child support case. This is an extremely important point.

Confusing The Enemy: W’s Latest Buzz-Phrase Is “Social Entrepreneur” (2/28/02) [MND] [TGR]
Exhaustively, I debated every left wing kook on the internet. President Bush did not refer to the Axis Powers of World War II in his state of the union address. “Axis of evil” is not the same as “Axis Powers.” A simple comparison shows that one phrase has three words and the other has only two. They can’t be the same phrase.

Too Late To Stop National ID (11/29/01) [ESR] [MND] [NWV] [TGR]
Changes in technology have left a nation confused about how the modern national ID system is implemented. Visions of passports with stamped pages need to be replaced with the modern reality of the computer age. Centrally located file cabinets filled with hand written cards have been replaced by interconnected databases in a huge distributed system.

New Wave Pro-Family Advocates Leave Fathers Out of Family (2/15/01) [FM] [TGR]

Why Do Current Child Support Guidelines Need Improvement? (03/28/02) [MND] [FM]
A judge sitting on a state panel on gender bias in Virginia put a word in a male activist's ear; that presumptive guidelines produce unreasonably high "child support" awards in order to equal out the difference in income between men and women.
