I think Obama better start talking to a REAL Lawyer to learn about the Constitution and the possible Impeachment proceedings.

I say jail the anti-Christ judges than OK divorces. They are causing the child abandonment problem.

Judges are child molesters.

I would say that child abandonment by their fathers is largely a black problem, but, then Jesse Jackson would want to cut my nuts off!

With 12 million people out of work, most of them out of benefits and can't find a job that will support them, let alone a family, how many are divorced fathers that can't pay support?
I expect some will opt for jail just to have 3 hots & a cot.

over 72% of blacks are without a father ... and most won't give a dime for their kids!

hispanics too breed like rabbits! the willing mexican chicks will do it with 40 different guys in a month just to get a 'anchor' baby ... and, you guessed it, the father splits!!!

this guy will make the U.S. tax payers pay thousands & thousands so he can skip on a $50/month payment!

he should be thrown in jail for 15-20 then he might get the hint! but NO, our liberal judges just want to coddle them!

$50 a month?

WhereTF you been?

Forty years ago minimal child support in Illinois was $40 a week, for one child, and that was if the paying parent was on unemployment.
Now it is 20% of net income, just for one child which means $50 a week on a minimum wage job.
I agree there are dead beat dads. I've had to send a few to the front lobby when the sheriff came to pick them up but don't lump all that don't pay together. Not in this economy.

And, please, explain how putting a man in prison for 15-20 is going to get the child support paid? That rationale only allows taxpayers to support the man that isn't paying his support. You good with that?

Jackson and Sharpton wants to cut your nuts off because you are white and aren't afraid to speak your mind.They go nuts when someone isn't scared off when they play the race card.

Sue, I do not know you. But there is a much more massive problem then what we are seeing. One problem is the amount of teenage girls getting pregnant. Then having a child and getting on the welfare. Since they are teenagers, the act of sex means there is underage rape or laws or something that never seems to be explored. And the Dad can be anyone. We live in an age where women have bought into the feminism. So when a mangets married, with the era we live in as females being "equal", they will initiate divorces much faster then in the past. Especially since the government is now the husband and blameless with having the real husband being the bad person. We live in an era of "equality" but the old ways of protecting women are still in effect. The internet has horror stories of most men who get divorced. You don't even have to look for them. It is usually the same reason. Communication or such..I know as America declines this is going to turn around in a vengeance by many males. People keep warning as the nation moves in a direction. And they never listen to sense. As their sense is enlightenment. And oh yeah... The guy is the pursuer. What changed that the female does not understand? She says yes or no!

Obama gives FOX News the "No FLy Zone" they wanted, and he's breaking the law?

When was the last time you paid your child support?

Maybe there is a better way to deal with deadbeat Dadsthen locking them up. Probably not, but maybe.
