Would you argue that if a man decides he doesn't want to pay for a child he helped conceive he shouldn't be forced to? This is why it isn't a simple question. If it is ok to absolve the woman involved of all responsibility then it follows that it must also be ok to absolve the man as well.
To be fair most people I know who pay child support don't mind supporting their children. However, what percent of child support goes to the children vs the moms "needs" is an open question. I'd be shocked if my kids see more than $.30 per dollar I pay. That's a scam.
... and I would be all for making it illegal if the state incubated the fetus from conception and paid all costs involved in the raising of the resulting child.
They kinda do the second part by way of forcing Dads to pay child support regardless of the Dad's opinion in the matter. It's unethical that 9 months on the woman's part allows her complete control over whether the child lives or dies. It's further unethical that child support, although called child support in name, is actually completely at the mothers discretion and is not required to be used on the child at all. That child support is enforced by law with extreme consequences with no fiduciary responsibility is an absolute scam.
The TPP might actually be a net financial gain for the United States - unfortunately, at the expense of other countries involved.
The current pie in the sky all, all lights are green projections from an administration desperate to push this is 0.6% growth. That's the best they could muster when fudging all the numbers in a favorable direction. The US will most assuredly lose on this just like every other first world country. This is NAFTA all over again. My only fond thought is that at some point citizens will get fed up enough to revolt. Vote Bernie or Trump if you want to end these "Free Trade" agreements. Vote Hillary or Rubio if you like bought and paid for politicians.
... and so should a baker who doesn't want to make a cake for their wedding.
The level of harassment for those who dare to have an opinion on LGBT issues other than the official SJW position is persecuted to a level that would make a Scientologist proud.
Fortunately one of the requirements is that you not be a member of a criminal organization.
That's not true, they allow political parties. If ever there was a band of thieves they qualify.
There is no way some crazy white guy calling himself a socialist is going to best "the Hill" like the unknown junior senator from Illinois did 8 years ago..
Obama was as pliable as Gumby. He danced like a puppet on strings and sold a lot of people on hope and change. I think he wasn't blocked like Bernie because he was all talk, no action. In reality, he delivered nothing that he ran on and to an outside observer from a policy perspective could have been confused as Bush's 3rd and 4th term. However to expect much honesty from a Chicago politician is probably the definition of gullible. Similar to expecting that Hillary, a clearly self serving person who has been well compensated by Wall St., will represent anyone in the 99%. Only Trump and Bernie would really shake things up, which is why I expect that they would be assassinated before they would be allowed to run things.
They counted for a fairly small fraction of a delegate in the end. The odds off getting 6 coin flips your way is 1 in 64. Not an everyday occurrence, but hardly impossible. This is a cute story but it doesn't mean anything.
This message is approved by Hillary with assistance from Goldman Sachs.
Try running a 5k sprinting until you can't run any more, and then walking until you recover and can sprint again vs just running at your maximum steady pace. I guarantee you the latter strategy gets you a better time.
Interestingly for software development it seems the sprints are preferred.
I could be wrong, but isn't that illegal under current laws?

Summary: The middle class and wealthy of most modern countries are selfish and don't want to raise children because this is the me generation.
To be fair I would advise my son not to have kids for the following reason - Your kids can be taken away from you rather easily by their mom. Family courts are a joke and that joke is on men. For any man to not want kids based on the very real risk of them being taken away and you being given limited "visitation" is not being selfish but quite rational. For my daughter I'd say kids are optional but she is in a very different situation by virtue of being female.
On the otherhand there's this years crop of angry republicans that are not very far removed from the president of idiocracy.
My observation over the past few years is that hell hath no fury like liberal media towards white males. Salon seems to publish at least one a week bashing the ever hated white male. The HuffPost does at least twice as many. Being an independent I'm rooting for Trump vs Sanders.
