Yes, there are all kinds of socialists, got ya. So your saying your okay with the label but you don't agree with anything that it stands for eh? Ok, maybe check your priorities and then holler back.

...and socialism is severely flawed, maybe reconsider what you do believe and if it still doesn't match your beliefs maybe you are not a socialist.

If it was truly based on joint custody it wouldn't have to be based on income. Just putting the facts out there, if it was truly joint custody, you wouldn't have to pay into the system, you would only spend money on your children and thats it. You could spend your money on food when they are with you and clothes, shelter, even set aside money for college, do whatever you could because the only business is between you and your children, not you and the state.

you do realize that the wage gap is now confined to working mothers, working women with no children are now earning about equal to the men, but once they have kids, they are seen as less valuable to the employers....
I've watched the hassle that the moms get at work when they can't be there because of the kids...guess what, we have a few single parent dads who are getting the same hassle when their kids prevent them from pulling in the hours. not having shared custody doesn't protect a person from this, obviously, since one of my coworkers got a nice long lecture when he couldn't come in, because the mom couldn't get there to pick up the kid when she was supposed to picked up!! so, well, I guess the workplaces are gonna have to become a little more family friendly, or else both mom and dad are gonna be getting crap wages simply because they are putting their kids first!
and, well, like I stated earlier, in many cases it's financial problems that are causing mom not to be with dad to begin with. if the two couldn't pull in the resources to live comfortably in one household, they have very little chance of holding down two.....
so, is hud supposed to pay for two luxury apartments with granite countertops, spas, pools and what ever else that was?? heck, why don't we just bypass all the messy separation and divorce, and just provide everyone with these nice new homes!!! while we are at it, some free healthcare would be nice!!!

the economy needs an adjustment, and that would solve at least some of the problems. as long as people can live better being "poor" they are gonna stay poor, even if they really like the father of their baby and want to be with them. heck, there's plenty out there with daddy, but shhh.....don't let the gov't know!!!

Capitalism is severely flawed.
If you think any system is perfect or even remotely good,
Well then I'd question your touch with reality.


I'm not the one questioning my beliefs either.

So is this thread about everything that you hate, or.. is it about child support..?I cannot for the life of me tell.
