Here is yet another war crime added to the horrendously lengthy list of war crimes attibutable to the Bush administration and the do less than nothing Congress. Our "representatives" throw outrageous amounts of money away in support of a lost cause in Iraq for the purpose of lining the oil-rich pockets of the war criminals running our country and these same criminals think nothing of taking money away from the citizens of our nation who need and deserve it most - our poor, our children, our elderly.
you all can thank your own US rep Fincher that voted for those cuts to your children while he, a cotton farmer, collects 4.4 million in direct farm subsudie's from our tax dollars and the federal government, why would anyone vote for this creep?

In Lawrenceburg, TN I was not given much of a chance. I went to DCS for help because I was in a physically abusive relationship. Was promised that my children would be placed in a temporary foster home until I got back on my feet. They changed their mind a few days later and the state took custody of my children. The plan they wanted me to follow was impossible. My children were in foster care for a year and the whole time I had a caseworker in my ear telling me I would not be a bad mother if I gave my children up for adoption. They let the father sign over all parental rights and sued me for child support. I could not fight any longer and hesitantly , with tears and snot, went into the judges chambers and signed the adoption papers. I even hesitated when the judge asked me if anyone pressured me. Yes! I was pressured! I was pressured from every direction! Now , almost 4 years later, I am in college, working, and trying to make something of my life. They want to put me in jail over the child support which is almost $3,000.... I make payments when I can and nothing else is accruing... Why don't they go after the father???? Why make my life so hard??? I wish I had a probono Lawyer who would take my case. They wouldn't even review it to lower the payments!$500 per month!! I can't afford it on minimum wage! I barely eat and have had to sleep in my car and a homeless shelter!
