I think we should refer to NAL as WAL - as in What A Loser.
Mar 11 btmom commented on Unpacking Ben Carson's Remarks on CNN.
So funny - I was using the "prove it" line to my mother as long ago as the early '80s, and it's just one they can't answer. Dan, my only argument with what you say is that religion is a different category because it is listed in the 1st Amendment. The other categories of equal protection and civil rights have been established by court decisions and/or statutes. It's something I wish we could fix.

I thought he went by Chet Haze. Or maybe that's just his Twitter handle.
Oct 24, 2011 btmom commented on Religious Bigot to Straight Parents: Ask Hospitals to Keep LGBT Staff Away From Your Children.
Because, you know, the only reason a nurse or tech at in a children's hospital/ward might wear scrubs with RAINBOWS on them is to tell people they are GAY. WTF?

This woman is so stupid I am surprised she manages to feed herself. She clearly has no idea how a hospital or other medical facility operates. They can't accommodate crap like this. They have no time and not enough personnel to deal with the bullshit. If a gay nurse is covering the floor your kid is on, what are they going to do, have a nurse from another floor abandon his/her floor to run to your kid when she needs attention? Is there supposed to be a chinese fire drill every time something needs to be done to your kid to accommodate your paranoid bigotry? Get a grip and STFU. Where I live this request legally could not be honored, but I can't imagine any hospital (except one which already discriminates in hiring LGBT personnel) agreeing to honor such a directive.

He should not resign. He did nothing for which he should resign.

I do hope he has learned a lesson, though. If you are going to be a public figure, a political firebrand AND engage in computer/phone sexual interaction, find a way to be freaking anonymous about it. It pisses me off to see that scumbucket Breitbart cackling away and releasing photo after photo and simpering "I'm the good guy here."

@377 - I base my assertions on 20 years of practice in 3 jurisdictions, as well as the research which accompanies it. In addition to that, the cases handled by my partner and my associates, and the cases discussed by my colleagues. Attendance at continuing legal education seminars taught by top practioners in the field, discussions with judges, reading law review articles and treatises. And the source of your bald assertions?

You can't, and you never will, get around that it isn't about what is fair to the father or the mother. The legislatures in every state have made a judgment that when you engage in sexual conduct, you assume the risk that you may father a child, whether you want to or not. If you do, you will be expected to contribute to the financial support of that child. Period. It is what is fair to the child and fair to society, and if you don't want to risk it, don't stick it in. I have seen judges shaft BOTH fathers and mothers on the issue of support -- it is an issue on which they are remarkably unsympathetic to excuses or complaints of unfairness. They look at what the parents earn and run the formula that applies to their state. If you tell them, "but your honor, I won't be able to afford my rent," they'll probably tell you to look for a smaller apartment. I've seen it happen, over and over. You don't like what I'm telling you? No skin off my back. I'm guessing that if you get married you'll end up finding out first hand.

I honestly wish JA5 and the other men here who are whining and ranting about the possibility of being held responsible for supporting kids they might father as a result of consensual sex: you really ought to post under your given names, so the women who might want to fuck you can give informed consent to sex with someone with the brains of a neanderthal and the morals of a jackal. That alone might convince her to have an abortion if she still decides to sleep with you and accidentally conceives - she might want to do society a favor and make sure your genetic material doesn't pollute humanity's future.
May 9, 2011 btmom commented on Savage Love.
@350 - all totally irrelevant, as I said. The support obligation has nothing to do with how the female became pregnant.

If the male is a minor, of course that would be considered in determining his support obligation, for some period of time, but once he is able to work, he will be expected to do so.

The court has the right to determine whether either or both parents are voluntarily earning less than they are capable of earning, and to calculate support based on the income it finds the parent should be earning. This is not that common, but it happens. So if you quit your job at the brokerage firm for that job at the bowling alley, just to spite your child's mother, don't be surprised if the judge makes you grab your ankles. We have a case of this nature right this moment.
