In the 2014 documentary film Divorce Corp, Sacramento Superior Court is shown to have the most corrupt family court system in the United States.

The problem is REAL. I have seen it directly with my daughter over years of increasingly unjust andRead More illegal decisions made by mediators, social workers and judges. I thought at first that we had just run into one judge with a god complex, and had the bad luck to hire an attorney that was best friends (litterally) with the opposing attorney. But as the pattern continued - and became more blatant I started to go through accounts of similar things happening in many other places in the country. Toward the end of the 15 year court battle to maintain custody, things became completely clear. The bad decisions were no accident. We have evidence from a niece's experience with Family Court that shows clear intentional acts to support their bad decisions. And honestly, I had to conclude that the more drama they create, the more money the system makes, and they absolutely don't care who gets hurt. Sounds crazy, but it is supported by years and reams of evidence. And my family is certainly not alone. Follow the money. and in this regard - DivorceCorp the movie SHINES… It is a must-see for anyone who IS married, or is contemplating it. Like the license plate frame seen last week said "100% of Divorde is due to Marriage….

Liberals and Islamic fundamentalists make such strange bedfellows. What the liberal never seems toRead More understand while they float the "coexist" bumper sticker and jump on the antisemitic bandwagon, is that the rights of women and homosexuals they claim to promote are nonexistent in the muslim regimes and ideology they are supporting. They think everyone can be reasoned with if they are simply "educated" or indoctrinated into their progressive mantras. They do not understand that a large part of the muslim disdain and animosity toward the west is the perversion and filth out of hollywood, and the destruction and devaluation of the natural family unit. If these two should ever compete, I can tell you which side will be missing their heads, trying to find the keys to their prius.

Liberty Counsel received this letter from a friend in Israel.   “It has taken me someRead More days to write down something coherent… This is what I know right now, today: The ugliness, the venom and sheer, violent hatred you are seeing in Paris, London, Berlin, LA, Boston, Denver, [Chicago]…. this is just the beginning.   We Jews are the canaries in the coal mine for all of humanity. Today, they are throwing bricks at synagogues and smashing chairs and saying “Kill the Jews." Tomorrow it will be someone else.   Does anyone really think this is only about Israel and the disputed territories? Today it is Israel. Tomorrow it will be you.   Seeing these violent protests, hearing the sickening screams for death, we Israelis understand better than ever we must fight for every square inch and with all we have. It matters not how much better our military is, how much more precise our targets can be. It only matters that when the smoke clears that Hamas is disarmed, destroyed, disabled and defeated. Forever. Hamas. NOT the people of Gaza. I feel so very sorry for them. Sorry they were misguided and elected these lunatics. Sorry that in their desperation they allowed Hamas to fill the empty bedrooms next to their children's room with rockets. Sorry that their leaders have mansions and swimming pools and are sitting in air conditioning in another city while they are sweating and wondering where the roof over their houses went. (If not their house itself.) Sorry that they have been brought up with no inkling of who Israelis are nor what compromise is.   Defeating Hamas will be a big problem for the power brokers because shame and honor are all that matter in this part of the world ... Here in this part of the world - for Hamas, honor comes from getting revenge. For them revenge is everything. For them revenge is the only thing.   There is another Gaza underneath Gaza. Hamas could have built hundreds of schools, paved thousands of roads, built hundreds of kindergartens with the cement and iron they have used to build these underground bunkers and tunnels (and you wondered why Israel put a blockade on bringing building supplies into the Gaza strip?). These tunnels to hell are filled with ammunition. And no women or children, not a single elderly person is brought to safety there. They want them on the street - on the roof, standing right behind - nice and close to the terrorist firing the rocket.   Hamas has refused to let journalists out of Gaza. Why? They need them to take pictures and record the carefully staged piles of bloody children and women. If the journalists leave they have lost the vehicle for distributing their bloody ad campaign.   Hamas asked for a cease-fire. And they broke it. They break every single one. Israel is setting up a massive field hospital to treat our enemies. From 8 pm on tonight there will be a working maternity ward, an operating theater…a working hospital. For… our enemies.   We are going to lose more boys. Last night we lost 13. With each day we are going to lose more. But everyone here now understands this is a fight to the death. It is them or us. They cannot compromise and they don't want peace or to share or to negotiate. They want revenge even if it means killing their own people. So we have to go in there and do things none of us want to do, but we have to. So this is why we are all so sad.   Israelis want peace so badly. But we also desperately want to live. We love life and we are not about to let anyone, let alone a bunch of deranged thugs take it away from us. So yes, this is a fight to the death for both sides. Remember, if they win, you are next. If we win, those symbols of civilization that everyone takes so for granted will remain standing and everyone will criticize and complain about disproportionate responses and war crimes and all kinds of other irrelevant nonsense, but secretly I think everyone will be heaving a sigh of relief."

Carl, a couple thoughts about the high-stakes testing you discuss in your commentary: (1) manyRead More school and district administrators do place way too much importance of the tests and use way too much school time preparing students for the tests. It was not uncommon for students to be subjected to TWO pre-practice tests during the school year (nearly as long as the actual test) in preparation for the end-of-year STAR test here in California. Any way you look at it, that's a waste of valuable educational time. Why did that occur? Because school administrators felt pressure from higher-ups to raise tests scores, even at already high preforming schools. That is unlikely to change with the new Common Core standards/testing. . . . . . . . . . (2) On the other hand, way too many teachers complain that they "can't be creative, can't teach the good stuff, can't focus on writing, can't give students time for PE, can't give students art, and on and on and on because of the pressure to "teach to the test." That's nonsense. Quality teachers easily figure out how to cover the standards (California State Standards or Common Core) without teaching to the test. Quality teachers find ways to integrate the standards with whatever they're teaching. Quality teachers know how to teach writing, reading critical thinking, social studies, science art, etc. and still cover the standards (which leads to kids doing well on the TEST).

Weddings aren't cheap. What can a to-be-married couple do with that $20K? They can use it for a downRead More payment on a house. Kick start their retirement savings.

I would be more understanding of such a huge outlay of money if people actually stayed married, butRead More alas, people don't anymore. It really is just a four hour party. Look at all the time and resources squandered.
