    Default new US law mandates background checks on MEN

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill...bill=h109-3402

    Big brother seeks new slaves to free & new inequalities to redress!
    US citizens (male of course!) will have to go through added steps and PROVE THEIR RECORD IS CLEAN as US resident dating dealers in the MOB industry ( as junk dating farms such as Y@hoo etc are exempted ) will have to make sure their record is clean.
    Another hippie lefty/christian ( they're the same when it comes to teary eyes, playing devil's advocate & being in bed with any supposedly "oppressed" category ) carpet bagging move and another nail in the coffin of the diseased MOB industry.
    If only they mandated it for [u]WOMEN as well...but of course only men are so evil to lie about a previous marriage or conviction...

    RESOURCES FOR IMMIGRANT VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.--
    AND
    (1) IN GENERAL.--The Secretary of Homeland Security, in
    consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of
    State, shall develop an information pamphlet, as described
    H. R. 3402--110

    in paragraph (2), on legal rights and resources for immigrant
    victims of domestic violence and distribute and make such
    pamphlet available as described in paragraph (5). In preparing
    such materials, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall con-
    sult with nongovernmental organizations with expertise on the
    legal rights of immigrant victims of battery, extreme cruelty,
    sexual assault, and other crimes.
    (2) INFORMATION PAMPHLET.--The information pamphlet
    developed under paragraph (1) shall include information on
    the following:

    Very interesting information ham....
    At least something useful here....
    However, sometimes I think men should also ask for "gender equalities" coz to me it sounds like we are moving 180 degrees.. Back in the early twenith century, women in canada were not allowed to own a land.... and now, if she lives with you for 6 months (even without papers) she will get half of whatever u have. I have no idea what's going on with the public's mind and I think the public usually support who is "physically abused" and forget about the "morally abused". Because of some stories, here and there, about domestic violence (probably related to alcohol or drugs), the trend now in north america is to give more power to women.... to the point that, in my opinion, will destroy the society even more. Instead of really simplyfing things in North America, they are even making it worse than just leaving things as they are.... I don't understand that anymore.
    Anyways, It is not my sole problem (not even my problem at all) but I think we are heading towards a big problem affecting the family design. In the next few years, we will probably behave like animals in terms of sexual relationships and family orientation...

    Very interesting information ham....
    At least something useful here....
    However, sometimes I think men should also ask for "gender equalities" coz to me it sounds like we are moving 180 degrees.. Back in the early twenith century, women in canada were not allowed to own a land.... and now, if she lives with you for 6 months (even without papers) she will get half of whatever u have. I have no idea what's going on with the public's mind and I think the public usually support who is "physically abused" and forget about the "morally abused". Because of some stories, here and there, about domestic violence (probably related to alcohol or drugs), the trend now in north america is to give more power to women.... to the point that, in my opinion, will destroy the society even more. Instead of really simplyfing things in North America, they are even making it worse than just leaving things as they are.... I don't understand that anymore.
    Anyways, It is not my sole problem (not even my problem at all) but I think we are heading towards a big problem affecting the family design. In the next few years, we will probably behave like animals in terms of sexual relationships and family orientation...

    An interesting topic. ! "More power to women".
    At the risk of getting this moved because its unrelated, I have to admit to some real fears about the male's role in society. In my own country the feminist movement has already undermined a mans place and role in the family hierachy, and men are now increasingly being considered as 'inferior' by the womens movements. This is having far reaching implications evidenced by the increase in the number of male suicides in the younger generation. The current trend for women to 'get a job', put the children in a 'creche' and leave all the housework to men is having a serious affect upon relationships, the family unit as a whole, and even in society at large. Much of this is not being done by 'concensus' but with an attitude of 'take it or leave it'. If men eventually decide that they want to 'leave it' then there will be an even greater affect upon family life and family relationships. In this country also there is a massive increase in 'one parent families' which suggests that current beliefs by many young women are "I Don't need a man around me, I can go get myself a child and then abandon the father as 'unecessary' " in todays society.
    I recently read an article in a leading Sunday newspaper, where the writer, a woman, wrote about the growing trend amongst women to consider men quite superfluous to the point where 'sperm banks' are the only thing that are necessary to continue with life.
    The growing trend where women go out to work, finance the household, either shunt off the children to the creche, or leave them at home for the father to look after, but still, upon returning home demand to be 'the' boss, and make decisions based solely on their own wishes and disregard the wishes or desires of the husband, is surely a recipe for disaster and will further alienate men and make them feel that they are surplus to requirements. ? The feminist movement may originally have had some very good ideals in equality for the sexes, but those ideals have surely now been exploited to the point where men are badly in need of a 'revolution' of their own. ?
