I agree. Which is why my information is not force fed to me by the government and why I do not pass along that kind of information to others. Edited to respond to your additions: Bush & Co are certainly capable of a lot of things. But that does not negate the truth of the matter and the cold, hard evidence in front of you from a multitude of sources. Just because they can , doesn't mean they did . The biggest and most important question is whether one is more concerned with finding the...

Alright, now I'm convinced that we DID walk on the moon. The science is entirely possible and I've explained several times over the years what the so-called "anomalies" are. I think people who think the moon landings are a hoax just can't believe that Mankind has come that far and they have a hard time accepting it (I know, it can be hard to take in when you think about it). Making the moon landing out to be a hoax is one conspiracy theory that I think is rubbish (and I generally like...

I agree with you that Pam is hotter than Gina...at least physically hotter. The problem is that Pam is dark-skinned (not that it's anything wrong with it), Gina is lighter-skinned, and that when you usually have TWO good-looking black women together (of different complexions), they have to be competitive to a point. Also, the darker-skinned character Pam is unfortunately casted as a "sapphire", a shrewish selfish, inconsiderate black female character. Besides, knowing about the skin color...

_________________________________________________________________________ Often this may be the case when there has been a long marriage and an agreement for the wife to be a stay at home mom, etc., the court takes into consideration the number of years the wife could have been either educating herself and/or working, but instead stayed at home and maintained the household and raised the children while the husband worked and establish an avenue of independent livelihood outside the home.

As a parent of two young school age boys I have seen this phenomenon first hand. Little white boys can swing from the ceiling and they are "cute".

The elephant in the room is white racism against black children.

By Sunnubian I am not sure where you practice law, but in NJ, child support is calculated based on both incomes, thereafter, the non-custodial parent, pays in cash or check directly to the cusotidal parent or to the child support office[in NJ it is called the Probation Department], who converts the cash into a check that is either deposited directly into the custodial parent's account or mailed to him or her. The Custodial Parent has the discretion to spend the money as he or she see fit.
