Happy New Year

A new day and new year looms

Outside my window, a new day I see and only I can determine what kind of day it will be.

It can be busy and sunny, laughing and funny, or boring and cold, unhappy and grey.

My own state of mind is the determining key,for I am only the person I let myself be.

I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help, or be selfish and think just of myself.

I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,or gripe and complain and make it hard on someone.

I can be patient with those who may not understand, or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.

I can be at play each day building healthy bonds of love with my four God given children,never to show them a negative display.

But I have faith in myself, and believe what I say, and I personally intend to make the best of each day.

German father strikes a blow for single dads

04/12 07:31 CET

An unmarried German man has struck a blow for fatherhood, winning a landmark legal decision on his right to see his daughter. The European Court of Human Rights ruled in favour of Horst Zaunegger, whose former partner refused him access to their teenage daughter when the couple split up and she moved away.

Under current German law, unmarried fathers can be refused access by the mother. Zaunegger said: “For me this is clearly a violation of human rights because, as an unmarried father, I’m being treated as a second-class parent. There is no justification for that. I’m a responsible father, I’ve proved this but I have no access to joint custody.” Single German fathers must pay child support, but can make no decisions and can be prevented from seeing their children.

Child custody is generally split between married couples. The law has been under increasing pressure, and in Berlin the justice minister called for a fundamental review of the rights of unmarried fathers. Figures from 2008 show that every third German child is born out of wedlock.

Report dispels link between domestic violence and murder

Quote: "The policy problem for government is whether to raise the
protection standard for all victims of domestic violence or raise
protection for a specific sub-group. I've got my doubts about the
effectiveness of the latter approach."

Report dispels link between domestic violence and murder
By Joel Gibson, Legal Affairs

It is a myth that most domestic murderers are known to authorities, with 74 per cent of them having no contact with police for violent incidents in the year before they kill and 48 per cent no contact for five years prior.

Even fewer victims - only 10 per cent - were involved in a recorded incident of domestic violence with their eventual killer in the year before their death, a Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research report says.

The bureau's director, Dr Don Weatherburn, said the findings made it difficult for authorities to prevent murders in the home, which are the most common killings in Australia.

"The policy problem for government is whether to raise the protection standard for all victims of domestic violence or raise protection for a specific sub-group. I've got my doubts about the effectiveness of the latter approach."

The report also suggests that recent powers given to the NSW coroner to investigate all domestic violence-related deaths could be fruitless.

"For me, the idea that the coroner will be able to sort through the deaths and identify early warning signs for who is going to end up a victim is now open to question," Dr Weatherburn said.

"You can identify risk factors for a burglar such as drug use but it's very difficult to do for domestic homicide."

The bureau analysed the 215 domestic murders in NSW from 2003 to 2008 and found the rate was steady.

The number of male and female victims was roughly the same, and 43 per cent of the murders were committed by intimate partners.

More than three-quarters of offenders were male and one-third may have had a history of mental illness, which Dr Weatherburn said showed domestic homicide was generally not a manifestation of mental illness. More common was consumption of alcohol by offenders before the crime.

Child killings were frighteningly high, with 17 per cent of victims less
than five years old and one in five killed by their parents.

Stabbing was the cause in more than one-third of cases, and of the 207
offenders, 13 per cent committed suicide after the murder and 10 per cent
attempted it.

For every victim of domestic homicide, there are more than 620 recorded
incidents of domestic assault.

Judge Boshier, Come Out And Say It: The Family Court Kills Males

Judge Boshier, Come Out And Say It: The Family Court Kills Males

By Union of Fathers

The Union of Fathers commends Judge Boshier for fronting up to suicide following Family Court proceedings, however, he fails to mention it is males committing suicide after dealing with the Family Court.

The gender of suicides is overwhelmingly male and we welcome the Court’s attention to the issue that the Union of Fathers has been talking about for many years.

Union of Father’s National President Allan Harvey says Judge Boshier cites statistics of 18 Family Court related suicides in the past year, but the real question is, has Judge Boshier completed a gender analysis of his own statistics?

“If not, why not? If he has then why does his speech today not include the research findings,” says Harvey.

Harvey says children suffer when their parents are absent in their lives, however, the Family Court grants only 13% of children shared care where they can enjoy and benefit from the input of both their parents in meaningful ways.

The usual Family Court pattern of children having contact with their fathers only every second weekend, two days a fortnight, is archaic and absurd.

“This is a cause of despair, mental health issues and suicide,” says Mr Harvey. “When parents are excluded from their family, their children’s lives and their homes, vulnerability is greatly increased.”

Harvey says Judge Boshier talks about “holistic approaches”, “primary prevention”, “social oversight of rehabilitation” and “access to programmes”.

However, one can quickly see that by using such obtuse language he is avoiding acknowledging that these deaths are his responsibility.

“Let’s hope he lobbies Parliament to make rapid changes before more children lose their parents and have their lives damaged by parental suicide.”

“Our experience in Union of Fathers is the Court labels complex situations with simple labels like victims and perpetrators. Judge Boshier does the same in his speech today.
“We note that Judge Boshier proposes working more closely with community groups and talks about providing a “sense of support” and “direction” to Family Court litigants.

Harvey says what we now have to ascertain is whether Judge Boshier is serious about solving the problem or does he see fathers as an allowable loss either by taking them out of children’s lives through questionable custody orders or having them suicide.

Justice official gives thanks for bias and bigotry

November 30, 2009

Last week we were jolted with the news that the global warming crisis is a hoax, an ideologically-driven scam based on data that have been routinely doctored, selectively presented, and when necessary, furtively disposed of.

But there's another global disinformation campaign that is still going strong. It's called the Cult of Domestic Violence. This ruse threatens the very foundation of American society: the traditional family.

This past Thursday Catherine Pierce, acting director of the Department of Justice Office of Violence Against Women, issued a Thanksgiving message — now that sounds comforting, doesn't it?

Ms. Pierce called for "a national conversation about violence against women and teen dating abuse. The Department of Justice will also dedicate this day to talk about ways to end the violence against women and girls that pervades every community in America."

Those sentences contain two very generous helpings of Ms.-Information.

First, domestic violence does not "pervade" every community in America. In fact, among couples in intact, married relationships, partner violence is essentially non-existent. Yes, intimate partner aggression lurks in some corners, but it is concentrated in low-income, substance-abusing couples not connected by the bonds of marriage.

Second, domestic abuse is not limited to violence against women. There is also a substantial level of female-perpetrated violence against men that goes unreported to the police. All the research shows women are equally likely to aggress, whether it's a slap-the-cad rebuke or a teach-you-a-lesson knee to the groin.

For example, the Centers for Disease Control reports 8.9% of adolescent males are victims of dating violence each year, compared to an almost identical number — 8.8% — of adolescent females.

And let's not purge our memory banks of the tragedy of former NFL star quarterback Steve McNair, shot four times in the chest this past July by his ex-girlfriend as he lay asleep.

So how does Ms. Pierce's one-sided Thanksgiving proclamation embrace mean-spirited bigotry?

Because when gobble-gobble statistics are floated before an unsuspecting public, persons begin to believe the lies. Segments of the population become stereotyped and demonized.

Laws are eventually passed that eliminate persons' fundamental civil liberties — just consider all the states that have passed "mandatory arrest" laws that shred Constitutional guarantees of probable-cause. Once a man is saddled with an arrest record, it becomes a cinch to tar him with the abuser label and take away his children.

Just as the global warming religion has come under scrutiny in recent years, a growing number of persons have begun to question the rigid orthodoxy that envelopes the domestic violence industry.

On October 1, President Obama issued a proclamation that highlighted the plight of both male and female survivors of abuse: "Domestic violence touches the lives of Americans of all ages, leaving a devastating impact on women, men, and children of every background and circumstance."

Three weeks later Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL) declared on the House floor, "When we think of domestic violence, we think of the women as being the victims. But it's also men victimized as well. Male victims are less likely to report the violence, and seek services due to the stigma associated with being a male victim or not being believed."

And on Tuesday December 1, WETV will be airing its latest installment of Secret Lives of Women. The promo reads, "The fact is however, that more than a third of all DA [domestic abuse] cases feature males as victims, and even that number is considered low due to the relatively low reporting of these cases by men who are ashamed and afraid to do so."

Maybe we should all encourage OVW director Catherine Pierce to tune in: . The last thing our families need is half-baked holiday greetings foisted upon us by self-serving government bureaucrats.

UK - Controversial dads' group plans cathedral protest

UK - Controversial dads' group plans cathedral protest

http://www.kentnews news/Controversi al-dads_- group-plans- cathedral- protest-newsinke nt30348.aspx? news=local

POSTED: 28/11/2009 13:00:00

Fathers’ rights campaigners planning a protest at Canterbury Cathedral have refused to rule out climbing up the ancient building.

In the past, members of New Fathers 4 Justice dressed a superheroes have managed to clamber on a series of high-profile buildings and unfurl banners demanding the right for father to see their children following a divorce or separation.

A source inside the controversial group, which will mount the demo on December 12, said: “We are still working out details. The final strategy is being decided.”

Police have warned they will react accordingly if any one climbs on the cathedral.

The Cathedral’s history goes back to 597AD and it is currently running a £50 million fundraising appeal to tackle serious structural problems facing the ancient building.

But ‘Jason’, the group’s South East co-ordinator said the demo is not a protest against the Church of England.

He said: “In fact we want them to do more to help fathers who are being cut off from their children through no fault of their own.

“Most people know this is not fair, yet it seems the Church and Government simply turn a blind eye to these men and dismiss their situation as unimportant.

“The synod has not debated the family and the breakdowns of the unit since 1991, which is frankly shocking.

“And the Government seems to also be ignoring these men. In many cases they have done nothing wrong, yet are told by mothers and the courts that they have no right to see their own children. For many, this is a wrench that is almost impossible to bear.”

The group is now organising what it is calling a “high profile protest” at the Cathedral for the first time.

Previously members have scaled the Royal Courts of Justice, Tower Bridge, thrown purple flour bombs at Tony Blair during Prime Minister's Questions at the House of Commons, and climbed onto the roof of Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman's house.

Jason said: “We want to put father back into Christmas. That is our slogan for this demonstration, and it makes so much sense.

“Christmas is a time for families, so it is all the more harder for dads to be apart from their children at this time of year.

“We know there are many fathers in Kent who are in this position and we would urge them to attend this protest, preferably dressed in a Santa outfit to drive the point home to the Church.

“We want to get our message across and slowly chip away at the establishment in the hope they will one day see how serious this is for so many people.”

New Fathers 4 Justice said the Church of England was showing a lack of leadership on modern-day family life, divorce and protection of young children's rights to both parents and extended families.

It warns it can’t rule out direct action at religious services.

Fathers are also part of the church flock that need help, yet the Church fails to speak out about a problem that causes so much pain, said Jason.

He said: “Children need contact with both a mother and a father and with extended families to provide the love, care, nurturing and discipline necessary for a happy childhood.

“We as dads and grandparents love our children and just wish to spend time with them but the present system breeds demoralisation in the home and workplace, compounded with further damage to even the sanest person's mental health.

“The Church of England and it representatives must stop ignoring the consequences of family breakdown.”

A spokesman for the Cathedral said: “I think there are better ways to make their protest. The courts and government control these things.

“It’s also not true the Church has turned its back on this.

“On February 12 this year, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams spoke at the House of Lords’ Children: Good Childhood Inquiry Report Debate where he backed the debate which called attention to the publication of the Good Childhood Inquiry report.”

Kiwi Rort Justice 101 - Crook Judges and Bent Lawyers.

Kiwi Rort Justice 101 - Crook Judges and Bent Lawyers.

With male suicide on the increase in the Family Court and legal aid lawyers exposed for fleecing the system in the news recently I thought I will give my take on things resulting from a major depressive episode that I experienced.

As a forced client of the Kangaroo Court system in 2001 I was assigned legal aid lawyers in a terrible heartbreaking case that painfully meandered on in the sick system for 8 heartbreaking years. 51 out of the 52 legal aid lawyers involved of my case worked against me even though they were supposed to be acting in my best interests. I guess they thought a male client was stuffed in a feminazi justice system. Suicide was a real thought after every meeting with these devious creeps, as one can tell when one is getting shafted big-time. These suited up lawyers are rotten to the core and they foolishly think they can hide their dirt.

I pleaded for mercy and assistance from the Principal Family Court judge Mahoney, and then judge Boshier - the gender bias judge who overseas a corrupt and extremely sinister Family Court. Needless to say I was fobbed of by everybody.

In an effort to clear my badly damaged name I have written so many letters to the appropriate people in positions of power I could cover a three bedroom house with the huge stack of government fob of wallpaper.

I can remember a meeting with the Children’s Commissioner some years back as part of the New Zealand Fathers Coalition. I personally handed him a 6000 word document that contained my story. He contacted me later on and said he was appalled that this could happen to a father of four in this country. He was so shocked be tried in vain to broker a meeting with the slime ball judge Boshier

It is interesting to bump into police that were involved in my case nowadays. A former court cop just the other day said, no hard feelings mate we certainly got you wrong. He said all those criminal charges and all that litigation was based on the lies of a maternal family. He hoped I would get compensation. I said I want nothing but my four kiwi born children who lived the nightmare deserved something. He said, you’re a good bloke Burns.

Boys face compulsory feminism programs in state schools across Victoria

FFS - Nice to see it described for what it is feminism with a capital F !!!
What insanity. What the hell has happened to the world?

Boys face compulsory feminism programs in state schools across Victoria

http://www.heraldsu news/boys- face-compulsory- feminism- programs- in-state- schools-across- victoria/ story-e6frf7jo- 1225803918910

BOYS face compulsory feminism programs in state schools across Victoria in a major push to prevent violence against females.

Possible classroom activities include students acting out scenes of sexual coercion after which students would suggest more appropriate behaviour.

A VicHealth report for the state Education Department calls for teachers to be trained in gender, violence and sexual health issues so they would be comfortable discussing "taboo" issues.

But it would help if teachers could "make the program fun", the authors said.

The report says programs for all students should start at primary level and be reinforced across all year levels in subjects including drama, English, science and sport.

They would combat common attitudes among boys such as young women are either "good girls or sluts", the report said.

It said feminist theories were best at explaining the link between gender power relations and violence against women, and must underpin the programs.

But the authors of the "Respectful Relationships Education" report admitted there was considerable community hostility to feminism, even among teachers and students.

"However, a feminist conceptual framework is essential both to reflect research on violence in relationships and families and to anchor the political commitments of the program," they said.

Australian Family Association spokesman John Morrissey said boys were already getting feminised education due to the falling number of male teachers in schools. "I'm sceptical if boys will respond to it if it is dressed up in feminist language and ideology," he said.

"Strident feminist propaganda won't wash with boys."

Report author Dr Michael Flood admitted there was always the risk of a backlash, but said it was crucial that students were taught that sexist attitudes and unequal relationships between the sexes were central to explaining violence.

"We need to do that in ways that are careful and respectful and don't make boys in particular feel blamed and demonised for the problem," he said.

"Not by shoving capital 'F' feminism down their throats."

Education Minister Bronwyn Pike said four schools would run anti-violence pilot programs from early next year.

Masons throughout history have had a habit of staying below the radar , a club that thinks it can keep what its up to secret despite the latest technology. However recently with films like National Treasure and books like the Lost Symbol masons have been using Hollywood and top writers like Dan Brown to create a very warped perspective of what they truly are all about.
This has been done to counter the growing evidence across the internet of the widespread deception and utter fraud that the whole evil system is founded on.There is no fancy mystical background they say they are protecting only a total power and control trip.

This is a CLUB that realized that if you place your members into every key position of power you can virtually control the world,its population but most importantly its wealth. Here is were the real power comes from when the western world's judiciary have been dominated by high ranking masons who have stealthily done away with juries and who have given themselves total control of ALL our wealth when they operate within their secretive court process's . Civil courts or more importantly family courts are were the REAL power lies with masons being used to steal our assets, homes and business's to prop up the masonic coffers.

The political system has been utterly corrupted by masons who have placed their dupes in all the major political parties and who we are expected to vote for come election time as no matter who the complicit media promote they are all part of the masonic run scams that fool us into thinking we have some sort of democracy.
The corporate media owned and controlled by a masonic hierarchy and used as a promotion tool for their political and judicial goons who's comments are featured regularly to ensure ONLY a masonic message and agenda gets out NEVER a counter argument to the massive charade that hides a complex web of deceit so enormous it has fooled the world for far to long.

The internet has finally broken the back of the lies and deceit that has allowed a small self appointed elite group to dominate and control us. Many activists aiding the exposure of this evil monster continue to be attacked by masonic cops and judges using extreme psychological torture and psychiatric gulags similar to how the Russians broke dissidents throughout their history. The WESTERN world is a facade of EVIL greed ,bullying and abuses, not the corporate media version that suggests we have rights and freedoms. Those rights and freedoms have been massively eroded by those now judging those rights and freedoms in the courts that are nothing more than the power base of masons and why so many of their satanic temples are lavishly adorned with the best woods,marble and finery as it has ALL BEEN STOLEN from the people in this very warped and devious art of deception.

The world will only be a much safer place when the key players are outed for their part as the most treacherous traitors that have ever walked the face of the earth. THEY ARE THE UTTER SCUM AND DREGS OF THE EARTH.
Don't let any of their corporate media buddies fool you otherwise.

The utter bull that masquerades as news effectively allows heinous crimes to be committed by thugs while their judicial brothers allow them to walk away that is if the masonic cops or masonic prosecutors decide there is sufficient evidence to even justify a court hearing. Then the other side of the coin is were innocent victims are set up to be the fall guys for their crimes alongside the thousands of non mason fathers who's estates are fleeced in divorce courts were masons are consolidating their wealth from asset stripping. This while masons walk away from divorce with the vast bulk of their estates intact leaving ex-wives struggling as do millions of non mason men who are devasted and destroyed by the power masonic judges wield.

It is these courts were a two tier process increases the power and wealth of masons while everyone else's estates are stolen to line their coffers. Anyone who has gone through this process knows it is maybe the most EVIL network of power they will ever face and why so many men and the occasional woman who commits suicide through the psychological torture these bastards met out to the unsuspecting population and an EVIL WORKING AT ITS EXTREME.
One look at how Bush and Blair and those involved in arranging the invasion of Iraq are all part of a clique of high level masons creating the chaos across the globe that distracts us from what they are doing in secret to own own citizens and why Bush and Blair can walk away from their war crimes knowing that the authorities that are supposed to be charged with oversight are also part of this creepy and sadistic network of power. THEY TRULY MUST BE STOPPED.

Every husband a potential 'abuser' | The Japan Times Online

"The problem is that Japanese courts and other governmental agencies appear to deal with domestic violence by applying two simple rules of thumb: that domestic violence is only committed by men against women and children, and that almost any conduct (by men) constitutes domestic violence."

In New Zealand a vindictive and venegful woman can ring police and state domestic violence is occuring and the father of the children will be in jail by lunchtime. The gender bias system does not need any proof or evidence as it's taken for granted by the feminazi police that all men are rapists. No wonder boys lack self esteem in our schools.

Radar Alert - "First they ignore you, ...."

"First they ignore you, ..."

Two weeks ago,'s short-lived1 publication "Double X" published an article by Kathryn Joyce entitled "'Men's Rights' Groups Have Become Frighteningly Effective."2

This was not's finest hour. One thing this article could never be accused of is objective reporting.

On Nov. 5th, the very same day the Double X article appeared,'s Broadsheet published an article by Judy Berman entitled "'Men's rights' groups go mainstream"3 that adds no new information, and simply seems to be an effort to repeat the Double X article to Salon's readers.

Since the Double X article appeared there have been several analyses of its flaws, the most recent being Cathy Young's article in Forbes: "Feminism should be about equality–for males too"4 which says:

"More than a quarter-century ago, British feminist philosopher Janet Radcliffe Richards wrote, 'No feminist whose concern for women stems from a concern for justice in general can ever legitimately allow her only interest to be the advantage of women.' Joyce's article is a stark example of feminism as exclusive concern with women and their perceived advantage, rather than justice or truth."

In "Journalistic Misrepresentation at Slate's New Woman-Oriented Publication 'Double X'"5, RADAR's Mark Rosenthal explained how the article had misrepresented his comments and also took issue with the article's characterization of Murray Straus as someone "who has written extensively on female violence," saying:

"The characterization of Straus as someone who has written extensively on female violence is like characterizing Susan B. Anthony as someone who wrote extensively on temperance – true but misleading because of what it leaves out. Straus has devoted his professional career to the study of all forms of family violence – parent-to-child, child-to-parent, sibling-to-sibling, as well as partner violence in all its configurations – male-to-female, female-to-male, and mutual. He has never focused exclusively on female violence."

And in a series of articles beginning with " & Criticize the Fatherhood Movement (Part I)"6, Glenn Sacks critiques the quality of the reporting, saying:

"The articles discuss various aspects and actors in the [men's and fathers] movement, and also quote and misquote me. ... I specifically, repeatedly, and emphatically told Joyce that any linkage between the men's & fathers' movements' grievances and Sodini is not my view, but I guess she was determined to jam it in there anyway."

Mahatma Gandhi is reputed to have said: "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." The joint Slate/Salon attack pieces are a good indication that we're well past stage 1. Congratulation to all RADAR supporters and allies for getting us this far. Let's keep it up!

Teacher has baby with 17-year-old student

Teacher has baby with 17-year-old student - Sunday Star Times - By CATHERINE WOULFE - 22/11/2009

A 17-year-old secondary school student and his 26-year-old female teacher had sex - and a baby - after bonding when putting the school yearbook together.

The teacher tried to stop the incident going public to protect her now two- year-old child, but it came to light on Friday when the disciplinary tribunal of the Teachers Council released a copy of its decision on the teacher's future.

Names of teachers, any students involved, and their schools are always deleted from these decisions.

The tribunal has not stripped the teacher of her registration. Instead, it has indefinitely suspended her practising certificate. Before she is allowed back into the classroom, the teacher must show she has addressed ethical and professional issues around power relationships between teachers and students.

The decision is not clear on whether the teacher and student are still romantically involved, saying only that they "maintain a relationship as a result of their joint parenting of the child".

The decision says the teacher and student had sex once, after classes finished for the year but while the student - who was in his final year of school - was still technically enrolled.

The teacher told the tribunal that, at the time, her marriage had recently broken up which left her feeling "alone and unstable at the end of my first year of teaching". She said she had never taught the student she slept with, but became close to him when she was put in charge of organising the yearbook, with which he was helping.

The pair "became friendly" and had sex after the student sent the teacher a text message inviting her to come and pick him up.

The decision said the teacher had emphasised that the student was "very nearly eighteen".

She said she found out early the following year that she was pregnant but kept it secret for a short time. She agonised over whether to keep the baby and decided she would, but required psychological help during her pregnancy, which was "a difficult time".

The student had left the school by this point and the teacher continued to work there before taking maternity leave. "She told us how the student had at that time returned from a period overseas, been supportive and became involved with their child," the decision said.

The teacher then decided she had to tell the school who her baby's father was. Shortly after the baby was born, in late 2007, she visited the acting principal, explained the situation to him and resigned. "She described the consensual nature of the relationship and how both families were supportive," the decision said.

The teacher said she was not making any excuses for her behaviour, which she regretted and which "weighed heavily on her mind".

"In particular, she said that she regretted how her behaviour had put her career at risk. She told us of her passion for teaching . . . She told us that she believed she was a good teacher . . . She said that she had learnt her lesson."

By law, the school had to report the teacher to watchdog body the Teachers Council. However, the acting principal told the council he thought censure - a type of formal warning that let teachers keep working - would be sufficient penalty.

The tribunal thought this an "unusual degree of leniency" and suspended the teacher's practising certificate, as well as censuring her and making her pay $1000 costs to the council. It refused her request to stop media from publishing the fact that the couple had a baby.

The teacher is now a fulltime mother surviving on the domestic purposes benefit and is living with her parents.

Nickelback - If Everyone Cared

20% of Divorced Parents Want to Make Other Parent’s Contact with Child ‘as Unpleasant as Possible’

Report: 20% of Divorced Parents Want to Make Other Parent’s Contact with Child ‘as Unpleasant as Possible’
Thursday, November 19, 2009
By Robert Franklin, Esq.

When parents are at loggerheads, there should be much more done to sustain the interests of the father and child. When a mother turns her child against the father, when a mother refuses to comply with a court order on contact, nothing is done because it is felt sanctions against her would not be in the interests of the child. But is the situation as it stands in that child’s interests? We pay only lip service to the rights of a child to have contact with a father and we need to do better.
This article is another one to address the findings of the Mishcon de Reya report on the impacts of divorce in the United Kingdom (The Times, 11/17/09). I discussed another article in the Telegraph in a previous piece, but this one adds information and some suggestions.
For example, the report found that more than one-third of children lose all contact with their fathers after divorce. It goes on to report just why that is.
But what makes keeping in touch so difficult?
One answer could be suggested by a finding of the Mishcon de Reya report — one in five divorcing spouses admitted to having the primary objective of making the experience as unpleasant as possible for his or her former partner.
Parenthetically, I wonder what all those people who deny the existence of parental alienation of children have to say about that. When 20% cite that very thing as their "primary objective" post-divorce, it's hard to figure how they can pretend parental alienation is a figment of some evil FRA's imagination. My guess is that we'll never know since they'll probably give that datum a pass.
And given that it's fathers, not mothers whom children are losing, and it's mothers, not fathers who get primary custody in 85% - 90% of cases, it's not hard to figure out who's doing most of the alienating.
But the article goes on to site some fairly commonsense things divorcing fathers and mothers can do to make things better. Unfortunately, many of those seem to assume some sort of residual goodwill between the exes. And if that existed, the problems children have stemming from divorce would probably be much fewer and less severe.
I suspect that there is a large percentage of parents who truly do their best to get along after they split and who mostly succeed. I also suspect that there is some percentage who will remain out to get the other regardless of everything. And I finally suspect that there are a lot of parents for whom counselling and mediation would be a great help. It's not that they'll feel much better about the other spouse, but they can learn to focus on the child's wellbeing and understand that, while he/she may want nothing to do with the other spouse, the child doesn't feel the same way.

Call for help for people in family court cases after suicides

Call for help for people in family court cases after suicides

Judge Boshier will not accept that his Court is gender bias and corrupt.Fact.I can supply detail to prove my point. I can supply evidence that a shows scum lawyers and sick psychologists from the unsavoury Family Court hounded my mother until she gave up and died even though a twisted Family Court judge said to me that my mum's request to be left out of any further proceedings would be granted. I have thought of suicide many times as no one in the Family Court listens to a father. RIP Mum. I WILL get even Boshier!!

Distress and parenting

My two daughters were brainwashed by a vengeful maternal family and assisted by a vindictive and totally corrupt justice system. The damage to my family has been horrific. RIP mum hounded to death by Family Court lawyers and psychologists who have leeched blood money from the major depressive episode since 2001! PAS is a real killer and extremely detrimental to the heartbroken forced client of the sinister Family Court. The gravy train in a sick system all earn a living from the most important Family Court file number! Scum of the earth enjoy PAS cases.

Distress and parenting
Published By Times Herald
Posted: 11/18/2009 01:30:32 AM PST

Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) is a collection of behaviors where one parent turns a child against the other parent. When a parent deprives a child of a healthy relationship with its other parent, the child may experience chronic psychological distress leading to the deterioration of the parental relationship. Since this distress can affect physical and mental health, health care professionals must not overlook the possibility that the child has been subjected to child abuse by the custodial parent.
Parental alienation often includes false accusations of child neglect, child maltreatment, and child sexual abuse. It also includes false accusations of domestic violence and blocking or inhibiting contact with a child by the offending parent. Those who commit parental alienation often threaten their child (or children) to fear or reject the other parent.
I have received a report that 50 mental health experts from 10 nations are a part of a larger effort to add parental alienation to the 2012 edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders by the American Psychiatric Association.

Third of family break-up children lose contact with fathers in ‘failing’ court system, poll

The New Zealand Family Court has destroyed my children. I will get EVEN !!

Third of family break-up children lose contact with fathers in ‘failing’ court system, poll

Tens of thousands of children a year are losing contact with their fathers because of “failing” family court system and disastrous custody arrangements, a study has found

Iain Duncan Smith: Iain Duncan Smith attacks Ken Clarke over marriage tax breaks

Iain Duncan Smith said the family court system was 'a mess' with fathers too often shut out.

One in three children whose parents separated or divorced over the last 20 years disclosed that they had lost contact permanently with their father.

Almost a tenth of children from broken families said the acrimonious process had left them feeling suicidal while others later sought solace in drink, drugs or crime.

They complained of feeling “isolated” and “used” while parents admitted having used children as “bargaining tools” against each other.

Lawyers said the study showed that the court system itself was making family break-up more acrimonious with children used as "pawns".

They warned that so-called “no fault” divorces were encouraging warring parents to channel their “bloodletting” into disputes over contact.

Opposition politicians said the poll presented an alarming picture of a system “in a mess” which was all too often leaving fathers “shut out”.

The poll of 4,000 parents and children was carried out to provide a snapshot of the workings of the family court system exactly 20 years after the implementation of the landmark 1989 Children Act.

It found that a third of children from broken families had been tempted by drink or drugs while as many as 10 per cent had later become involved in crime.

A quarter of the children said that they had been asked to lie to one parent by the other and 15 per cent said they had even been called on to “spy” for their mother or father.

Meanwhile half of parents polled admitted deliberately drawing out the legal process for maximum benefit and more than two thirds conceded that they had used their children as “bargaining tools”.

About 250,000 couples, both married and non-married, separate every year affecting 350,000 kids, according to the Department for Children Schools and Families.

“The adversarial nature of the system invites people to come and use the courts system as a punch up and the children get used as pawns," said Sandra Davis, head of family law at Mishcon de Reya, for whom the poll was conducted.

“It polarises parents and it puts children in the middle of the antagonism.

“Some fathers back off because it is too painful to carry on litigating, they give up.”

Tim Loughton, the Tory Shadow children’s minister, said: “This is alarming evidence of the very detrimental impact it is having on the welfare of the children themselves.”

“Clearly, the court system is failing and is positively encouraging conflict - and continuing conflict.”

Iain Duncan Smith, the former Conservative leader and founder of the Centre for Social Justice, warned that young people were bearing the scars of a divorce “boom” and a resulting lack of father figures.

“It is a mess, it needs a complete overhaul," he said. "It is an organisation locked in secrecy and deeply unhelpful to the parents and the children and all too often able to exacerbate the problems that they are about to face.”

David Laws, the Liberal Democrat children’s spokesman, added: “In too many cases the children become caught up in the crossfire between two warring parties in a system which sometimes encourages the parents to take entrenched positions.”

Miss Davis called for compulsory mediation for parents hoping to use the divorce courts rather than the current ”tick box” exercise for those seeking legal aid.

But a spokesman for the Children’s Society said that compulsion “goes against everything we have learned from many, many years of experience”.

Delyth Morgan, the children’s minister, added: “Divorce and separation can have a devastating impact on children caught in the middle.

“But this survey, looking as far back as 20 years ago, simply doesn’t reflect what support is available for families now … we have acted to give families comprehensive counselling, practical and legal support.”

The Hypocrisy of the UK Government.

Jimmy says "The Prime Minister is to apologise for forced deporting of children fr0m 1930 to 1970. But they are still at it. Social services are still snatching children and telling them falsely that their families do not want them and also telling grandparents and extended family that the children do not want to see them either. (Parental Alienation) This confuses and demoralises children into accepting forced adoption to complete strangers. An excellent cost cutting business plan! But children are not commodities.

Extract from the ‘Social Work Action Magazine’ Social work conference.

Quote “Social workers said they did not become SW so that they could be ‘case managers or have to make decisions based on money rather on what was needed” End Quote.

He will combine it with an apology to the 7,000 child migrants from Britain who still lives in Australia.

As they were compulsorily shipped out of Britain, many of the children were told - wrongly - their parents were dead, and that a more abundant life awaited them.

Many parents did not know their children, aged as young as three had been sent to Australia. Child care agencies (guess who they are) worked with the government to send disadvantaged children to a rosy future and supply what was deemed "good white stock" to a former colony.

Full story.

USA Family Court judge suspended for 45 days

"the commission found that Gormley entered a change of custody order that removed a child from the custody of her father but denied the father the right to put on his own evidence."

I was denied the right of defence that would have proved that I was a decent father by Judge John Strettell in the Ashburton Court 17 December 2001.Filthy low life Ashburton lawyers Chris Robertson, Paul Finnigan and Geoff Kean helped the bent judge shaft me and force me into a eight year fucking nightmare. Dirty scum of the earth pricks need to be held accountable. Oh by the way my major depressive episode cost the country millions and it could have been cut dead in its tracks if that sinister evil judge had let me give evidence that would have cleared my name.
The Family Court is a gender bias hell hole!!
I hope the children and grand children read about these professional Family Court filth when they google these creeps' name in the future. How can a so called Court deny anybody a defence Judge Rotten Strettell? You c##t!!!

Victoria’s lawyers being sued in landmark test case

Victoria’s lawyers being sued in landmark test case
Thursday 15 October 2009

A senior human rights lawyer has joined the backlash of criticism of Victoria's lawyers and judges including recent damning criticisms by Federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland and Victorian Attorney-General Rob Hulls.

Human rights lawyer and activist James Johnson from law firm Sutton Lawyers has launched a test case to confirm that, thanks to the new Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities, Victorians can now for the first time sue Australian barristers and solicitors for negligence and other improper conduct in Court proceedings - even if other Australian's are not as lucky.

Mr Johnson alleges that he was disadvantaged by the negligent and unethical practices of lawyers during recent legal proceedings. Now, in a landmark test case Mr Johnson is testing the new human rights laws, suing the Minister for Human Services Usa Neville, 4 family law lawyers and a family law court judge. "Australia's barristers and litigation solicitors are the only professionals who are not legally liable for negligence in the work place," he said. "This situation no longer exists in other English speaking legal systems.

Laws in Britain, the US, Canada and a host of European countries have removed lawyers' immunities, and citizens in those countries are able to sue lawyers over their actions, words and conduct in court."

The announcement of Mr Johnson's test case comes not long after the publication of a damning report by Victorian State Ombudsman George Brouwer reporting on large scale misconduct and incompetence by Victoria's peak legal regulator, Victorian Legal Services Commissioner Ms Victoria Marles, who has subsequently tendered her resignation.

Mr Johnson says that basic human rights, including the right to a fair trial and the principle of equality under the law are key rights guaranteed by Mr Hull's Human Rights Charter. Mr Johnson claims that during the recent Court proceedings he suffered substantial injustice when he was denied these basic human rights. "Special laws made by judges protecting lawyers from negligence claims have always been incompatible with the basic human right of equality under the law. Basic rights to a fair hearing are also undermined when barristers are able to get away with negligent, unethical and even fraudulent misconduct."

"These special laws just for lawyers have bred arrogance among a small group of lawyers and it flies in the face of Victoria's Charter of Human Rights," he said. "Our Victorian Attorney-General Rob Hulls has publicly criticised judges for their aloofness has been demanding cultural change. But these same cultural attitudes of superiority are prevalent throughout the legal profession. Barristers and solicitors and not just judges need to undergo urgent cultural change. We have a situation where a small number of negligent and corrupt lawyers are causing irreparable damage to the professional images of a majority of hard-working, ethical and competent lawyers. And the legal professional bodies and regulators are slow to respond to the problem."

Other prominent lawyers have expressed the same kinds of concerns as Mr Johnson. Retired Victorian

Supreme Court Judge, Professor George Hampel has been a long time advocate of universal professional negligence laws, arguing that it is for the good of the profession as well as for the good of the public, that negligence laws should not discriminate in favour of lawyers.

Retired High Court Justice Michael Kirby also been vocal in criticisng this historical defect in Australian's professional negligence laws working in favour of lawyers. He served up a strong rebuke to his fellow judges and lawyers in 2005, the last time the High Court heard a case challenging for the right to sue a barrister for negligence.

"I question why an anomalous immunity is not only preserved in Australia but now actually enlarged by a binding legal rule that will include out-of-court advisings and extend to protect solicitors as well as barristers," he wrote. 'With all due respect to those of the contrary view, I regard such a decision as legally erroneous, unwarranted and unworthy.""Over the course of a century, (the High Court) has heard countless cases in which negligence has been alleged against professional and other skilled persons. Thus, it has held to legal account architects, civil engineers, dental surgeons, and specialist physicians and surgeons, anaesthetists, electrical contractors, persons providing financial advice, police officers, builders, pilots solicitors (in respect of out-of-court advice) and teachers," he said, saying it was impossible to see how lawyers could justify special treatment by the law.

But in 2005 the majority of other Judges sitting on the High Court disagreed. They noted that, unlike the United Kingdom, Australia did not yet have a national Bill of Rights. Mr Johnson said that "Back in 2005 the absence of a national Bill of Rights allowed wriggle room for the majority of the High Court Judges to rule that Victoria's barristers and solicitors, including me, were somehow special compared to all other Australian professionals.

The High Court, by a majority went against the international trend to put lawyers on the same legal status as everyone else. Over Justice Kirby's criticisms they extended the law to protect Victoria's litigation solicitors, not just Victoria's barristers, from professional negligence law suits."

Australia today is one of only three countries (along with Burma and Chile) that still doesn't have a national Bill of Human Rights. But, as Mr Johnson points out, Victoria now has a Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities.

According to Mr Johnson "Justice Kirby delivered a strongly written rebuke to his fellow Judges, saying that these laws keeping special legal protection for lawyers was nothing more than what he called an 'inadmissible empathy' - a 'sympathetic understanding confined to lawyers', because Australian judges are themselves lawyers. The outrageousness of the special protection speaks for itself since these bad laws have been removed in all other English speaking countries.

Justice Kirby said that this excuse 'will not do'. And there are many honest, dedicated lawyers who agree with him." "Equality under the law, the 'rule of law' is the single biggest contribution the English legal system has made to democracy, world peace and prosperity. It is something that English judges and courts have championed for hundreds of years - well before Attorney-General Hull's Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities. And yet, somehow, English judges managed to create laws protecting English lawyers from being sued for negligence and a whole range of other kinds of misconduct during court proceedings.

Then, somehow, while ever other English speaking country realised during the 20th century that these special laws were wrong and removed them, in 2005 Australia's judges actually went with new laws discriminating even more favourably in favour of Australian lawyers.

According to Mr Johnson "The challenge for human rights lawyers and advocates will be if this test case is not succesful. Special laws protecting negligent barristers and solicitors from being sued are a major, if not fatal, road block to the introduction of human rights laws. Whether we are about the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities which is existing law, or we are talking about a future Bill of Rights for Australia. If our lawyers wont accept something as basic as equal liability under professional negligence laws they can hardly be counted on to stand up and protect Australian's against other human rights violations either.

It is no coincidence that Australia has the third worst human rights records amongst the 132 members of the United Nations."

Mr Johnson hopes that his test case will bring Australia's laws, and Australian lawyers, into line with standards in other English speaking countries. "Australia's lawyers and professional bodies should be welcoming and encouraging this reform just as English lawyers did in 2000. New laws, demonstrated by a handful of cases requiring a few unethical lawyers to compensate people they have wronged will do wonders to improve public faith in the integrity of the legal profession."

Attached the article from Sunday's Herald Sun on one of several test cases that human rights law firm, Sutton Lawyers (of 1st Floor 141 Osborne Street South Yarra Vic 3141) is currently running in the Victorian Supreme Court.

As luck would have it, attached is a second article (on an unrelated case) where senior lawyers misbehaving in the Supreme Court have been strongly rebuked and face serious misconduct charges. This is a good sign (especially in the context of the criticisms of judges and other lawyers that have been aired by the Victorian and the Federal Attorney-Generals in recent weeks).

This sort of misconduct by lawyers is of course par for the course in the family law courts. Sutton Lawyer's test case in the Supreme Court involves misconduct by 4 family lawyers misbehaving in the
Supreme Court and in the family court and 2 judges (supreme court and family court). It is only a matter of time until these family lawyers are ordered to pay substantial civil damages, and face serious
professional disciplinary proceedings and probably criminal charges too.

Please FORWARD this email and attachments, please post them etc far and wide to all dads groups and journalists in your contact list, with a request that they also on-forward, post etc.

As one of several initiatives I am looking to establish a mens right group to be known as 'Women In Favour of Equality' (ie WIFE organization) learning from how the female suffragettes achieved 'equal political rights' at the turn of the 1900s only because of the actions of men like HG Wells who were 'men in favour of equality.' So I would be especially pleased to hear from women willing to take up positive roles in WIFE Organization.

The best way for anyone to contact me is by ordinary snail mail at Sutton Lawyers (as per above postal address). Now is the time for the truth to be put out to everyone who is willing to receive it.

I have reason to believe (inside information) that the national family court industry, worth $6bn per annum to these corrupt family lawyers, is in danger of very substantial collapse from within. Stay tuned for
more details.

Best wishes James Johnson Human Rights Lawyer

masonic court The Justice secretary Zionist Jack Straw announced yesterday that judges in England and Wales, who had to previously declare if they were masons no longer require that declaration.This is as a direct challenge by the United Grand Lodge of England who threatened him with taking the matter to the European Court of Human Rights.

We have been concerned for many years that the ECHR conventions are being undermined by JUDGES, not juries, deciding on matters relating to the UK's draconian and menacing judicial mafia.

Judges sitting in the ECHR courts may very well be undermining the very nature of human rights by also being members of secret societies and that their perspective of HUMAN RIGHTS relates only to those affecting their brothers and the rest of the population can continue to be ruthlessly destroyed by the powers these masonic judges within the UK have stealthily given themselves. We know British judges are NOT intimidated by threats of victims taking their case to Europe. NO JUDGE has the jurisdiction in any case when either party requests a jury , particularly in civil actions when vast estates are being seized by masonic judges in draconian decisions that they should NEVER have been allowed to take.

Our courts have been high jacked by judicial masons, as proven by the United Grand Lodges continued threats, as it is the power of MASONS that has been proven time and again to be in the hands of the judges that sit in judgement in cases across the United Kingdom and across the globe. This ensures their ultra rich hierarchy can continue the class system that has seen the massive disparity between the rich and poor. Courts and its judicial hierarchy of masonic judges are the main criteria in keeping us all in our lowly place and court powers will ensure our assets are seized if at any time we become a threat to the thugs now running the UK for their own financial gain.

The growing dissent among British victims, their families and friends and also the wider population cannot be stifled any longer by these thugs and bully boys who have been getting increasingly away with murder in how these courts operate. Even a recent comment by the chairman of the Bar Standards Board Lady Deech were she stated "another example of a law imposed on us by the judiciary, without any reference to Parliament" in that family courts are being abused by judges, many if not all masons, who have been for centuries using them as a means for the state to fleece the victims who cannot get juries . Instead making decisions on a lifetime of work invested in assets and homes that are seized using court orders that are wholly illegal and then railroaded through by corrupt judges and lawyers. Later those stolen assets and homes being made available to masons to buy up at vastly reduced cost and one of the incentives they use to sell their soul to a satanic order that brainwashes and blackmails its members who ruthlessly attack anyone who dares challenge their power and money grabbing scams.

Jack Straw has laid down the gauntlet to the millions of victims of these thugs who will continue their reign of terror unless they are stopped . Everyone should avoid at all costs using courts as a means to settle disputes as JUSTICE is non-existent while theft of property is rife by that legal mafia . Marriage ,once a religious preserve is now a meal ticket for the masons who are building their power and wealth using judges to redistribute OUR assets into their hands and living opulent lifestyles on the backs of draconian powers within those courts. Their victims have collated evidence over many years for anyone as yet to face these monsters who remain the biggest threat by far in the UK, despite all the corporate media spin on terror threats from outside the UK.

The amount of lives lost through terrorism(their smokescreen) pales next to the vast army of victims who have been psychologically tortured, abused, bullied and destroyed by this evil network that Straw has bowed to their demands and threats .That we will continue to EXPOSE and take whatever measures are needed to oppose the impact this decision is having on our rights and freedoms. There is no doubt that the more ruthless these evil barstewards become the more the vast majority of the population will resist when they are faced with ever more victims coming forward and telling how their lives have been destroyed by these mobsters. THAT WE HAVE NEVER HAD ANY DOUBT ABOUT THAT THEY CANNOT AND WILL NOT WIN THIS WAR AGAINST OUR FAMILIES.

British police categorize political activists as ‘domestic extremists’

Fathers' rights activists would be 'caught' by this British Government stalking 'definition' of "domestic extremists".

Apparently it's wrong for citizens to stalk (aka monitor) but OK for The State and its police.

Not sure though which of the four categories they would listed under ... probably "extreme right".

Quote: Activists are divided up into four groups: Extreme right, extreme left, animal rights and anti-war. Groups roped in to the database even include those that have never been associated with any illegal activity.

Police in £9m scheme to log 'domestic extremists'
Thousands of activists monitored on network of overlapping databases
By Paul Lewis, Rob Evans and Matthew Taylor

Audio: Mark Thomas: 'I'm going to use it on my posters' (3:53min)
Comedian Mark Thomas gives his reaction to finding out that his name -
along with those of thousands of other political activists and protesters -
is being stored by police on a secret database

Police are gathering the personal details of thousands of activists who attend political meetings and protests, and storing their data on a network of nationwide intelligence databases.

The hidden apparatus has been constructed to monitor "domestic extremists", the Guardian can reveal in the first of a three-day series into the policing of protests. Detailed information about the political activities of campaigners is being stored on a number of overlapping IT systems, even if they have not committed a crime.

Senior officers say domestic extremism, a term coined by police that has no legal basis, can include activists suspected of minor public order offences such as peaceful direct action and civil disobedience.

Three national police units responsible for combating domestic extremism are run by the "terrorism and allied matters" committee of the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo). In total, it receives £9m in public funding, from police forces and the Home Office, and employs a staff of 100.

An investigation by the Guardian can reveal:

- The main unit, the National Public Order Intelligence Unit (NPOIU), runs a central database which lists thousands of so-called domestic extremists. It filters intelligence supplied by police forces across England and Wales, which routinely deploy surveillance teams at protests, rallies and public meetings. The NPOIU contains detailed files on individual protesters who are searchable by name.

- Vehicles associated with protesters are being tracked via a nationwide system of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras. One man, who has no criminal record, was stopped more than 25 times in less than three years after a "protest" marker was placed against his car after he attended a small protest against duck and pheasant shooting. ANPR "interceptor teams" are being deployed on roads leading to protests to monitor attendance.

- Police surveillance units, known as Forward Intelligence Teams (FIT) and Evidence Gatherers, record footage and take photographs of campaigners as they enter and leave openly advertised public meetings. These images are entered on force-wide databases so that police can chronicle the campaigners' political activities. The information is added to the central NPOIU.

- Surveillance officers are provided with "spotter cards" used to identify the faces of target individuals who police believe are at risk of becoming involved in domestic extremism. Targets include high-profile activists regularly seen taking part in protests. One spotter card, produced by the Met to monitor campaigners against an arms fair, includes a mugshot of the comedian Mark Thomas.

- NPOIU works in tandem with two other little-known Acpo branches, the National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit (Netcu), which advises thousands of companies on how to manage political campaigns, and the National Domestic Extremism Team, which pools intelligence gathered by investigations into protesters across the country.

Denis O'Connor, the chief inspector of constabulary, will next month release the findings of his national review of policing of protests. He has already signalled he anticipates wide scale change. His inspectors, who were asked to review tactics in the wake of the Metropolitan police's controversial handling of the G20 protests, are considering a complete overhaul of the three Acpo units, which they have been told lack statutory accountability.

Acpo's national infrastructure for dealing with domestic extremism was set up with the backing of the Home Office in an attempt to combat animal rights activists who were committing serious crimes. Senior officers concede the criminal activity associated with these groups has receded, but the units dealing with domestic extremism have expanded their remit to incorporate campaign groups across the political spectrum, including anti-war and environmental groups that have only ever engaged in peaceful direct action.

All three units divide their work into four categories of domestic extremism: animal rights campaigns; far-right groups such as the English Defence League; "extreme leftwing" protest groups, including anti-war campaigners; and "environmental extremism" such as Climate Camp and Plane Stupid campaigns.

Anton Setchell, who is in overall command of Acpo's domestic extremism
remit, said people who find themselves on the databases "should not worry
at all". But he refused to disclose how many names were on the NPOIU's
national database, claiming it was "not easy" to count. He estimated they
had files on thousands of people. As well as photographs, he said FIT
surveillance officers noted down what he claimed was harmless information
about people's attendance at demonstrations and this information was fed
into the national database.

He said he could understand that peaceful activists objected to being
monitored at open meetings when they had done nothing wrong. "What I would
say where the police are doing that there would need to be the proper
justifications," he said.

This Is Your Brain Without Dad

This Is Your Brain Without Dad

By Shirley S Wang

October 27th 2009

Conventional wisdom holds that two parents are better than one. Scientists are now finding that growing up without a father actually changes the way your brain develops.

German biologist Anna Katharina Braun and others are conducting research on animals that are typically raised by two parents, in the hopes of better understanding the impact on humans of being raised by a single parent. Dr. Braun's work focuses on degus, small rodents related to guinea pigs and chinchillas, because mother and father degus naturally raise their babies together.

When deprived of their father, the degu pups exhibit both short- and long-term changes in nerve-cell growth in different regions of the brain. Dr. Braun, director of the Institute of Biology at Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg, and her colleagues are also looking at how these physical changes affect offspring behavior.

Their preliminary analysis indicates that fatherless degu pups exhibit more aggressive and impulsive behavior than pups raised by two parents.

In a study the researchers presented at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in Chicago earlier this month and recently published in the journal Neuroscience, half the degus were raised with two parents, while the others were raised by a single mother, the father having been removed from the cage one day after the birth of his offspring.

Dr. Braun and her colleagues found that in the two-parent families, the degu mothers and fathers cared for their pups in similar ways, including sleeping next to or crouching over them, licking and grooming them, and playing with them. The fathers even exhibited a "nursing-type" position.

When the mother was a single parent, the frequency of her interactions with her pups didn't change much, which means that those pups experienced significantly less touching and interaction than those with two parents.

The researchers then looked at the neurons—cells that send and receive messages between the brain and the body—of some pups at day 21, around the time they were weaned from their mothers, and others at day 90, which is considered adulthood for the species.

Neurons have branches, known as dendrites, that conduct electrical signals received from other nerve cells to the body, or trunk, of the neuron. The leaves of the dendrites are protrusions called dendritic spines that receive messages and serve as the contact between neurons.

Dr. Braun's group found that at 21 days, the fatherless animals had less dense dendritic spines compared to animals raised by both parents, though they "caught up" by day 90. However, the length of some types of dendrites was significantly shorter in some parts of the brain, even in adulthood, in fatherless animals.

"It just shows that parents are leaving footprints on the brain of their kids," says Dr. Braun, 54 years old.

The neuronal differences were observed in a part of the brain called the amygdala, which is related to emotional responses and fear, and the orbitofrontal cortex, or OFC, the brain's decision-making center.

'A Horse Without a Rider'

The balance between these two brain parts is critical to normal emotional and cognitive functioning, according to Dr. Braun. If the OFC isn't active, the amygdala "goes crazy, like a horse without a rider," she says. In the case of the fatherless pups, there were fewer dendritic spines in the OFC, while the dendrite trees in the amygdala grew more and longer branches.

A preliminary analysis of the degus' behavior showed that fatherless animals seemed to have a lack of impulse control, Dr. Braun says. And, when they played with siblings, they engaged in more play-fighting or aggressive behavior.

In a separate study in Dr. Braun's lab conducted by post-doctoral researcher Joerg Bock, degu pups were removed from their caregivers for one hour a day. Just this small amount of stress leads the pups to exhibit more hyperactive behaviors and less focused attention, compared to those who aren't separated, Dr. Braun says. They also exhibit changes in their brain.

The basic wiring between the brain regions in the degus is the same as in humans, and the nerve cells are identical in their function. "So on that level we can assume that what happens in the animal's brain when it's raised in an impoverished environment ... should be very similar to what happens in our children's brain," Dr. Braun says.

Other researchers, such as Xia Zhang, a senior scientist at the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research, and his colleagues in China, have observed different consequences using voles, mouselike rodents that also naturally co-parent. (Fewer than 10% of species raise their offspring with two parents.)

Voles deprived of their fathers—either from birth or later on in childhood—exhibited more anxious behaviors and were less social, spending less time engaging with stranger voles that were placed in their cage, according to a study by Dr. Zhang and his colleagues that was published in July in the journal Behavioral Processes.

Of course, the frontal cortex—where thinking and decision-making take place—is more complex in humans than it is in other animals. Thus, says Dr. Braun, it is important to be "really careful" about extrapolating the recent findings to human populations.

"The minute you get into stuff with extensive social and environmental components, the social differences between humans and animals are massive," says Simon Chapple, a senior economist in the social policy division of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the 30-country grouping of the world's largest economies.

It remains an "open verdict" whether single parenthood causes these bad outcomes, or is merely associated with them, says Dr. Chapple.

Risk of Delinquency

Still, the prevalence of single-parent households has researchers looking at possible consequences for children. An OECD report found that just 57% of children in the U.S. live with both parents, among the lowest percentages of the world's richest nations.

The report, which sparked some controversy when it was released in September, found that children in single-parent households have an increased risk of delinquency and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, as well as poorer scholastic performance.

The OECD also analyzed data from 122 separate studies and found that there was variability in the negative effects on children of living in a single-parent home; on average, the OECD found, the magnitude of the impact was relatively small. On a standardized intelligence test with a median score of 100 points, for example, a child in a single-parent family would be about 3.5 points worse off than a similar child in a two-parent family, according to Dr. Chapple, who co-wrote the report.

Dr. Braun's goal for future research is to figure out whether degu pups' brains can be rewired by introducing a substitute caregiver, such as a grandmother, or whether other social and emotional enrichment can help "repair" the fatherless pups, she says. Human children may be sent to day care, for instance, which can help them form stable friendships with their peers and other adults.

The bottom line, says Dr. Braun, is that parents need to fuel their children's brains with talk, touch and sensitive stimulation that involves give and take.

Parents, she says, "are the sculptors of their children's brains."

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue

I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!

STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters...... S.T.R.

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word.
I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.

Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening

Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die. they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke... totally . He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.


Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S * Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?

Wise words from a wise father

Dear New Zealand Fathers Rights Movement

The situation in New Zealand is this:

§ 96% of the applicants to the Family court are female.

§ Police Cadets are taught in training that 97% of DV is perpetrated by males.

§ 400,000 + school children out of approximately 1 million children are separated in some way from their father.

§ Women do not go to anger management courses.

§ The Family Courts have a guilty until proven innocent policy for males.

§ The Family Courts are still secret.

§ The scale of the problem which includes huge intergenerational damage for children is immense.

§ Indeed if this were happening in fascist Germany it would be called a holocaust, with children as the collateral damage.

Boy hating mothers who want only baby girls

The False Rape Society

News and commentary about wrongful accusations of rape and sexual assault
Wednesday, October 14, 2009
Sick article: Boy hating mothers who want only baby girls
Read it all here:

I will only say this: when they abort baby girls in China for economic reasons, everyone thinks it's absolutely horrible. When they abort baby boys here in America because mother wants a female companion, it's completely understandable and acceptable. A lengthy article, but here's an excerpt:

What’s behind the modern-day girl fetish? One explanation: Women envision a brighter future for their daughters than they do for their sons. Boys are practically the underdogs these days, having fallen behind girls on nearly every measure of academic achievement, from college attendance to high school graduation rates. According to books such as The War Against Boys and Boys Adrift, they are in danger of becoming, as Christina Hoff Sommers has written, “tomorrow’s second sex.”

“The way society is now—I feel there’s a preference for girls,” says Linda Heithaus, a marine biologist from Hollywood, Florida, who has two sons and is contemplating doing IVF/PGD in the hope of getting a girl. “They can do everything a boy can do, plus you can dress them up. It’s almost like, to fit in, you need to have one.” Girls, in other words, are boys plus. They can play sports and have careers, and you can dress them in pink and take them to tea at the American Girl café. What’s not to like?

Lithuanian Dad Kills Judge For Molesting His 3 Yr Old Judge Dreadful Killer A World Hero

A true VINDICATOR we can all be very pleased with. Kudos to Poland for offering him safe-haven too!:)

Lithuanian Dad Kills Judge For Molesting His 3 Yr Old Judge Dreadful Killer A World Hero
Austria Times

A dad who shot dead a judge and a senior politician because they molested his three-year old daughter has become a national hero after going on the run in Lithuania.
Horrified Drasius Keyds, 37, gunned down the perverted pair on Monday after police turned a deaf ear to his pleas for justice for his tortured tot.
Now in hiding, Keyds has become a hero on YouTube and Facebook with hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world pledging support.
"You are a hero to all of us," reads one Facebook message. "What you did is nothing but justice."
Mugs and t-shirts with his image on them have begun appearing alongside the logo "Drasius: Lone-avenger".
Keyds' nightmare began a year ago when daughter Deimantela told him about a meeting set up by his then fiancee with judge Jonas Furmanavicziusa and the Speaker of Lithuania's parliament , Andrius Us. [Based on the way these names have been misspelled, I'd say both men are Jews and the misspellings were intentionally made to make it difficult to prove their ethnicity via a google search - "Andrius is no doubt Andreas, and the proper spelling for the other judge is "Furmanavicius" [26,000 google hits], not Furmanavicziusa [Two google hits]. Jews do this ALL THE TIME, in fact, you should automatically assume that any Jew accused of anything, will have an intentionally misspelled first name, surname, or both.]
The pair allegedly raped and abused the youngster who reported her ordeal to her father.
But a year long campaign for a police investigation failed when detectives told Keyds there was not enough evidence to proceed with a case.
Now the fugitive dad is being offered a safe haven in neighbouring countries like Poland.
Parliamentary deputy speaker Stefan Niesioowski said: "This is a clear case of incompetent law enforcement on the original crime."

Why socialism sucks

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had once failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich--a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around,the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little.. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, and name calling all resulted in hard feelings, and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. All failed. To their great surprise, the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that.

* LIFE IN THE 1500'S *

* LIFE IN THE 1500'S *

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water.The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water.

Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying. It's raining cats and dogs.

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, Dirt poor. The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a thresh hold.

(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme, Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old.

Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, bring home the bacon. They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.

Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.

England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a ...dead ringer.

And that's the truth... Now, whoever said History was boring ! ! !
