    7/2005 - "Ending Father Absence" “Time-Shift Shared Parenting” (TSSP - by Dave Usher - Judges, lawyers, psychologists, feminists, and men’s rights activists have been at loggerheads for as long as we can remember over what to do about children of divorce. Liberals want to pander to it and fund more divorce. Most conservatives say all the right words, but usually end up doing what the liberals want for lack of any real “marriage movement” leadership.

    “Custody” is just another description for the tremendous problem of father-absence. The problem exists because we have been asking the wrong question all along: How do we split the children in half?

    3/2005 - "Two Years into Iraq War, Little Has Been Done to Protect the Rights of Military Fathers" - His Side with Glenn Sacks - Laws granting deployed soldiers special protections against civil legal actions date back to the Civil War. However, few of these protections extend to family courts and family law. As a result, military men's service to their country often creates the conditions under which they can become victims of terrible injustices. Two years into the Gulf War and three and half years into the war on terror, both federal and state governments have failed to address the family law issues which military men and fathers face.

    When Gary, a US Navy SEAL, deployed to Afghanistan in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, he never dreamed that his service to his country would cost him his little son. Gary's son was not taken from him by a terrorist or a kidnapper. This 18-year Navy veteran with an unblemished military and civilian record was effectively stripped of his right to be a father by a California court. ...

    6/2004 - "Allred vs. Tong--Is Parental Alienation Syndrome a Fathers' Rights Hoax?" - His Side with Glenn Sacks - The high-profile Bridget Marks custody case in New York has put the gut-wrenching issue of sexual abuse allegations in custody battles in the headlines, and Marks has become a cause celebre for many feminists. In that case the court determined that Marks had coached her four year-old twin girls to claim that they had been sexually molested by their father, and judge Arlene Goldberg switched custody from the mother to the father. False allegations of sexual abuse are an important part of a pathology dubbed "Parental Alienation Syndrome," wherein one parent tries to turn his or her children against the other parent...
    Feminists assert that Parental Alienation Syndrome is a father's rights hoax--"junk science"--which unscrupulous fathers use to wrest custody from decent, loving mothers. The father's rights movement sees PAS is a damaging epidemic--one which family courts usually turn a blind eye to.

    "The truth teller has nothing to do except remember the truth ... The liar has to remember all of their lies!"

    "Presumption of innocence. A hallowed principle of criminal law to the effect that the government has the burden of proving every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt and that the defendant has no burden to prove his innocence. It arises at the first stage of the criminal process but it is not a true presumption because the defendant is not required to come forward with proof of his innocence once evidence of guilt is introduced to avoid a directed verdict of guilty.
    Presumption of innocence succinctly conveys the principle that no person may be convicted of a crime unless the government carries the burden of proving his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt but it does not mean that no significance at all may be attached to the indictment. U.S. v. Friday, D.C.Mich., 404 F.Supp. 1343, 1346. " from George W. Maschke.
