This was just written at www.mensnewsdaily.com
about the Fathers for Justice stunt at the Lincoln Memorial a few days ago:
Former Massachusetts Women's Bar Association President Elaine
Epstein stated, "It has become essentially impossible to effectively
represent a man against whom any allegation of domestic violence has
been made." She also wrote in a column in the association's
newsletter that divorce-connected restraining orders are doled
out "like candy." "Everyone knows that restraining orders and orders
to vacate are granted to virtually all who apply," and "the facts
have become irrelevant," she reports. "In virtually all cases, no
notice, meaningful hearing, or impartial weighing of evidence is to
be had." Yet a government analysis found that fewer than half of all
orders involved even an allegation of physical violence yet 47
states have laws on the books that require family judges to consider
such allegations or findings when they make child custody decisions.
When life-altering decisions are based on false or trivial
allegations, it's the children who lose out.
To conclude...the actions of F4J would NOT have been necessary IF
our government listened to the legitimate grievances of its people.
There is absolute proof they have not. The VAWA is one of them.
When they pass laws protecting only select people, it is unjust.
When they listen and ask for citizen input from only select people,
any resulting laws would be unjust. When laws are passed that put
all the burden on one group of people while another group has all
the rights given by the burdens of the other group, the resulting
laws will be unjust. If we pass enough of these laws, we will be
right back to the place we were in 1775...when these 56 men felt the
need to violate the laws of the land...and write...The Declaration
