Sex, money…

                        …and national bankruptcies

This is a discussion about three hundred and thirty-six billion dollars, money we do not have and money we can save, this is going to take longer than fifteen seconds probably even longer than five minutes, please use the links and review the material: an informed discussion is the best one.

Males and females have disagreements and males and females both say “it is my way or the highway”, in relationships involving children though, most Fathers hear “I’m hitting the highway and I’m taking the kids”. State, local and the federal government are right there to join the argument in saying “the kids go with mom”.
 Various political interests present “power and control” in a variety of ways:
Duluth presents power and control over females here:
West Michigan DAD presents power and control over males here:
SAVE Services gender neutral power and control can be found here:
Perhaps we need to enter relationships in a truthful manner without expectation of changing one another, and, expecting to honestly know one another.

President Obama grew up without his dad, and has said that being a father is the most important job he has. Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that undergirds many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.”

We can not promote Fatherhood by denigrating Fathers. We can not promote Fatherhood by incentivizing single motherhood. We can not solve all of our neighbor’s arguments.

Every one it seems links mothers to children to victimhood. It might be more appropriate to link children to their fathers. Not all women are named Britney or Lindsey or Casey. Are all women sluts, are all women violent and abusive These women think not:, and,

How productive can a man be after divorce and losing his children:
What might the costs of faithlessness be? One hundred billion dollars annually
Perhaps we could add another three hundred and ten million dollars:

Are Fathers necessary lists several studies demonstrating the criticality of fathers to their children'’ development (the studies are available for download).

Could the figure be about three hundred thirty-six billion dollars?

million dollars annually

Should we simply cut three hundred and thirty six billion annual dollars from the budget? Perhaps we should, this is a rough estimate of the costs of fatherlessness and incentivizing single motherhood.

There could be additional costs such as those related to electronic baby sitters:

Clearly as a nation America is facing a deficit crisis, the EU really is not in any better shape. Clearly Americans are not insuring domestic Tranquility, promoting the general Welfare, securing the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves or to our posterity. Civilized nations across the Atlantic seem not to be either.

We can not promote Fatherhood by denigrating Fathers. We can not promote Fatherhood by incentivizing single motherhood. We can not solve all of our neighbor’s arguments.

·         Perhaps there is good reason for The Defense of Marriage Act in America?
·         Perhaps we ought to eliminate no fault divorce?
·         Perhaps we should establish mandatory DNA testing at birth, no Father – no benefits, no affidavits, just DNA. Have you ever watched The Maury Show, The Steve Wilkos Show, perhaps The Jerry Springer Show?
·         Perhaps we should eliminate VAWA and VAWA II, expect couples to manage their own disputes and perhaps suggest some related course material be introduced into our high school curriculum?
·         Perhaps we can add male teachers, understand that boys and girls learn differently, and, allow children access to their fathers?
·         Perhaps President Obama and other elected leaders can have a frank and candid conversation with the American people? Perhaps the EU might promote Fatherhood as well?
·         Perhaps State and Local Governments can examine these matters as well to free up more money?

My mother was upset with me today, in her eighties; she is concerned about Social Security, she did not want to hear about all of the social programs in social security, in her day social security was about old age now it is about fatherless infants.

Reportedly America has until August second to resolve this debacle, please let your elected officials know your thoughts. You can search for them here:
United States Senators
United States Congressman
President Obama
