Massachusetts – Land Of Confusion

Massachusetts – Land Of Confusion

Charles Baker and Massachusetts DSS,DCF,  Agency,  destroying good people for profit,  someone writes: The whole facade is based on the deception of “implied consent,” when in fact, there is no contract, authority or law in the actions of the “court.” In fact, the Human is the only one who can possess or exercise Inherent Rights, can sign a contract, can own allodial property, can bear children or authentically exist. The fictitious “state” is not a human, does not own our…

May 17, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization The same article I wrote about yesterday goes on from Scott Vogel’s story about spending $130,000 and three years of his life trying to get more than about 14% parenting time with his son and daughter (KARE11, 5/14/19).  It discusses a bill before the legislature that would establish a presumption of equal parenting.

May 16, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Here’s a balanced and informative article on the push for shared parenting in Minnesota (KARE11, 5/14/19).  NPO’s good friend, the redoubtable Molly Olson has been battling the state legislature on behalf of shared parenting for well over a decade now, so it’s good to see her getting a bit of a boost from the press. The article starts with Scott Vogel and his donnybrook in family court. Unable…

Nebraska: Has a Presumption of Equal Parenting Entered the Law Unheralded?

Nebraska: Has a Presumption of Equal Parenting Entered the Law Unheralded?

May 15, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization The recent Nebraska case of Dowding v. Dowding gives us a good opportunity to take a second look at our fairly invariable support for equal parenting.  This blog has always recognized that there are plenty of instances in which equal – or even shared – parenting either cannot work or isn’t in a child’s interests.  Serious child abuse is one example, parental unfitness is another and…

The Guardian – Wrong, Biased on Child Support

The Guardian – Wrong, Biased on Child Support

May 10, 2019 by Robert Franklin, Member, National Board of Directors, National Parents Organization Sigh.  The Guardian never seems to disappoint.  If you’re looking for a one-sided anti-father screed, The Guardian is usually happy to comply and this article is no exception (The Guardian, 5/8/19). The subject is child support; the point of view: fathers are a sneaky lot who bend heaven and earth to avoid paying child support; this leaves custodial mothers living in poverty; and the child support bureaucracy is…
