Let's start with equal rights for men in child custody cases.
Sure. What about it? I went through the procedure and ended up with all the kids and the house. Other males that are responsible conscious and rational have done the same. Maternal rights of the mother is strong as it should be as it is promoted by natures evolutionary trait for the survival of our species. Most males fail the empathy test and or several other prerequisites. When both parents fail then the child becomes the awarded to the state. So what is your Point? Oh I know you’re a Hollywood graduate of the 40’s and 50’s right?

As the influence of MSM continue to fall with the public, the far Left politicians are beginning to hint at censorship of the internet.
Really? I'd be interested in seeing you take this from your opinion to fact son.

Of course, we could nip this in the bud and simply call it a lie!!

Your choice!

The far Lefts lack of knowledge of history is amusing if not alarming.
The right wing nuts need to change history is even funnier when you consider the information is already out there, but they refuse to believe it and instead, substitute their opinions!

Over Seas Account of the1% under attack by Obama.
Heard the latest? Observe how Obama actually attacks the source of our inequality. Our liberty to pursue happiness is eroded with ever increasing subsidizing corporations, increasing our inequality. Republicans evades, distorts their support for subsidizing corporations at the expense of our infrastructures , education, Jobs, Health Care, etc, etc.
President Obama is closing the inequality gap by holding the tax evaders accountable. Something the republicans have never in the history of our nation has ever done. Another first for Obama. He has been fighting this fight since 2009.
The US authorities’ biggest success so far came in 2009 when Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS, agreed to give away some 4,450 client names and paid a $780 million settlement after admitting to selling tax-evasion services to Americans.
In January Switzerland’s oldest private bank, Wegelin & Co, said it would close down for good after over 250 years, following its guilty plea to charges of helping prosperous Americans hide more than $1.2 billion from the Internal Revenue Service through secret accounts.
Approximately a hundred Swiss banks will now entertain an open door policy in allowing the USA to have the names of those U.S. citizens that have accounts. Examining each for possible tax evasion. Banks will face fines of up to 50% of the asset value, if they corporate.
This offer does not apply those banks already under investigation. Credit Suisse, HSBC Holdings Plc and Julius Baer Group Ltd to name the top largest banks. Several regional banks that under investigation will not receive this offer as well. The U.S. Department of Justice stated; “"The program is intended to enable every Swiss bank that is not already under criminal investigation to find a path to resolution,"
US Attorney General Eric Holder stated; “This program will significantly enhance the Justice Department's ongoing efforts to aggressively pursue those who attempt to evade the law by hiding their assets outside of the United States," Goes on to say; "In addition to strengthening our partnership with the Swiss government, the program's requirement that Swiss banks provide detailed account information will improve our ability to bring tax dollars back to the US Treasury from across the globe,"
Estimated total account value hidden in Swiss banks is $2.2 Trillion. Closing the Swiss offshore secret tax evader’s haven is a warning to all citizens that use foreign accounts, to evade taxes. They may soon find themselves in this scenario.
Those banks that do not cooperate may take heed to U.S. Attorney General; "significant risks for individuals and banks that continue to fail to cooperate, including for those Swiss banks that facilitated US tax evasion but fail to cooperate now, for all US taxpayers who think that they can continue to hide income and assets in offshore banks, and for those advisors and others who facilitated these crimes."
More than a dozen Swiss banks are under investigation, which includes mortgage backed securities sold by the banks. Credit Suisse has already agreed to a settlement of $120 Million stating the settlement does not imply guilt of selling of risky mortgage backed bonds.
Swiss government has been cooperating with the U.S. since May 2013.The Swiss Bankers association stated that the U.S. deal; "enables all banks in Switzerland to settle their US past quickly and conclusively and creates the necessary legal certainty." Swiss government ordered Julius Baer to hand over, the necessary data on U.S. clients.

!!!FREE MACKING ADVICE!!!

I'm flying to Seattle to teach a PUA (Pick Up Artist) class to all those horny MS, Amazon, Starbucks, etc. geeks but here's some general advice that's available all over the net for free. The biggest d*ck wins, figuratively speaking. That means a good combination of job, house car, street cred, etc. Looks can be important if you're lacking in those areas but if you those covered, you don't need looks and you've got game. My students usually have all that down and just need some fine tuning (like taking off their geek glasses and getting some nice frames or Lazik). I'd put my ads here but the moderators would delete them and direct me to their sales and advertising.

Meanwhile, you Bocajews have nothing in response except bigotry against the Roman Catholic Church, while worshipping all homosexuals except Roman Catholic priests.
