You don’t represent me or anyone else


But I can and do represent you


I issued this challenge to a debate on the issues and law to members of  the fathers' rights movement 3 years ago yet not a single one has had  the balls to take it, show up and be the man that they claim to be. Yet these same whiners will bash me as not knowing what I am talking  about. They will make false claims about me, yet have never met me face  to face or in many cases never even spoken with me. So for you  punks that like to protest and think that is what is going to change  Ohio law or any other state, the challenge is again thrown down. Any  time, any where, no dumb phones, just one on one, Lincoln Douglas style.

 While all this talk of “Fatherless Rallies” continues I am going to make my position well known, you do not represent me or any other father, you only represent yourself.  You can’t tell my story for it is one of a properly fought case which resulted in equal legal and physical custody. Just because you didn’t fight your case and were reduced in time with your child does not mean that every father was.

 You don’t represent me or any other father because every time you stand out with your T-shirts and signs you do nothing but continue the myth of the disgruntled dad that has been used to stop equal custody from going through to passage.

 You don’t represent me because you claim that the law is unfair yet you cannot identify the flaw that makes it so in every state.  You will stand around screaming that your rights were violated and that the law is bad but when asked for a solution, you can’t present one. You just failed in the eyes of legislators if you do this on statehouse grounds.

 You don’t represent me if you are unable to get a conversation opened about changes to the law because all you do is rant about what happened in your case.  This is not about you, changing the law is about a much larger picture.

 Want to challenge me on this , fine, and here is what I will do. Anyone and I do mean anyone is welcome to debate me publicly on the subject; I will make all arrangements and promote that debate. You better bring your “A” game and know the following subjects inside and out:

  • 1.      How federal incentives work, what they pay for and why they are not a money making process for any state.
  • 2.      Why presumptions of shared parenting or equal custody have no effect on the outcome of a case.
  • 3.      What the fatal flaw is in every state’s shared parenting law, there are two.
  • 4.      What the flaw is in every state’s child support law with the exception of one. Be prepared to name that state.
  • 5.      What the fatal flaw is in the 14th Amendment argument that is so often used in claims that it should grant equal custody in every case.
  • 6.      What amendment to the U.S. Constitution prevents this from being a federally controlled issue and no federal law can be enacted to change it. 
  • 7.      What the difference is between a fundamental right and a Constitutional right. 
  • 8.      Why “Best Interests of a Child” is flawed as a standard of determining custody and why it cannot be legally defined in any state law.  Also be prepared to name the USSC case that supports that flaw.
  • 9.      Who will oppose equal custody legislation and how to easily defeat their arguments. Better know what they claims are also.
  • 10.  Be able to support your position that fathers do not have rights and what under the statutes of your state makes that so.
  • 11.  Why a never married mother gets all rights at birth and why that law can never be changed.
  • 12.  Be able to support the basis for your statement that your child is “fatherless”. 

Many want to criticize me but I have yet to see anyone be able to support their position. Think I have an ego? Get your head out of your rear because I have been at this longer than any of you with very few exceptions. You may not like my bluntness but it is time that each of you grows up, grows a pair and starts working is direction that will change the law rather than continuing to walk the path of proven failure.

 The wheel was invented and perfected a long time ago by those of us that have been addressing the issue yet as a new crop of “newbies” come in they continue to walk down a path that makes Einstein’s statement definition of insanity look truer every day.

 Consider this the challenge thrown and I am more than open to anyone that thinks they can win a debate on the subject. All contact information is below.
