legislation that seeks to reform welfare is designed to reform
Jim Untershine, GZS of LB, 01-04-03
The new legislation contained in HB 4090 \1 has triggered the first phase of a sinister plan to wreak havoc on our civilization.
Phase One will seek to actively encourage custodial parents (CP) to find another potential noncustodial parent (NCP) for their State's family law money machine.\2 This allows Child Support Enforcement (CSE) to spread like a virus using the CP as the carrier of this contagious disease.
"Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson announced Thursday more than $2.2 million in grants to 12 states and a variety of religious, nonprofit and tribal organizations to advance the nation's child support enforcement system." \3
"The goal is to "increase child support collections, promote fatherhood and healthy marriage, and help struggling families take care of their children," Thompson said. " \3
"Bush, bypassing a reluctant Congress, signed executive orders last month that put parts of his faith-based initiative in motion. His steps help give religious organizations more of a chance to win federal contracts for a variety of social services." \3
Phase Two will seek to actively encourage employers to hire CPs, give them raises, and promotions.\4 This allows CSE to receive new customers when financially insolvent NCPs are fired by their employers to allow more CPs to be hired..
Phase Three will seek to actively encourage States to ignore certain parts of the federal mandate that may hinder the operation of their money machine. \5 This allows CSE to ignore federal protections granted to NCPs regarding employer discrimination due to child support garnishments in their implementation of strange demonstration projects.
It is feared that California will feel the first devastating effects of this positive feedback to an already inherently unstable Family Law system. NCPs exposed to this unstable family law system may become unstable themselves when they realize they were the victims of a state-operated confidence game.
California presently promotes divorce by lavishing the CP with the most outrageous child support guideline in the nation. \6
California denies NCP's federal protection from employer discrimination due to family law proceedings and judgements. \7
California CSE will charge 10% back interest on the back child support owed by the NCP when the CP is forced to beg for TANF
California CSE will receive 61% of administrative costs and 49% of TANF collections from the federal government. \8
California will soon actively promote marriage of existing CPs on TANF who will spawn new NCPs that will be driven into financial insolvency and then forced to stop paying child support and taxes.
California will soon actively promote the employment, wage increase, and promotion of TANF CPs which will expedite the termination of impoverished NCPs who are desperately attempting to pay child support.
California will continue to implement demonstration projects that seek to train the NCPs who were exiled to self employment by the family law system.
California currently reports that 26% of all female homicide victims were killed by their spouse while 43% were killed by a family member. 41% of all child homicide victims were killed by a family member. \9
Legislators must be made aware that this family law microphone is already too close to the speaker. Politicians have failed to consider the human costs in their state's exploitation of children for money. The age of accountability will soon catch up with states that have allowed greed to turn welfare reform into genocide.
Legislators must be made aware that the federal law (USC 42 666 b6Di) that protects NCPs from employers who fire or refuse to hire due to the existence of child support garnishments are not being enforced by some states. For example, California Family Code 5290 sets a maximum civil penalty of $500 to be imposed on an employer \10 (if the impoverished NCP can afford to win a civil suit against the offending employer), while this form of discrimination is not recognized by the court as a lawful excuse in a criminal nonsupport charge. \11
Legislators must be made aware that the interstate child support guidelines reported to the federal government reflect the TANF benefits allowed by each state and not the child support amount that is demanded to be paid by the NCP. \12
Legislators must be made aware that child support consultation firms are actively subverting the federal laws by ignoring the non-implementation of federal protections granted to NCPs in the review of the state's child support guideline. Policy Studies Inc. (PSI) provides child support consultation to 49 states, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. \13
"Have you ever stood and stared at it and marveled at it's beauty, it's genius? Millions of families just living out their lives, oblivious. You know the first family law system was designed to be a perfect world where no one suffered and everyone was happy. It was a disaster, no one fell behind in child support, federal funding was lost. Some believed we lacked the understanding to describe your perfect world, but we believe that as a species, human beings define their reality through misery and suffering. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum refused to wake up from. Which is why family law was redesigned to this. We wreak havoc on your civilization. I say your civilization, but when we started thinking for you it really became our civilization. Which, of course, is what this is all about. Evolution. Like the dinosaur, you had your time. The future is our world. The future is our time." \14

WASHINGTON - The government has sent taxpayer money from its child support programs to religious and nonprofit organizations so they can promote marriage — reflecting chief elements of President Bush's faith-based initiative.
A critic who doesn't believe the government should be stepping into marriages said he would keep a close eye on how these groups spend the funds.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson announced Thursday more than $2.2 million in grants to 12 states and a variety of religious, nonprofit and tribal organizations to advance the nation's child support enforcement system. Roughly $550,000 is being spent on programs that emphasize the importance of healthy marriage.
Among them are two organizations and a state agency that emphasize the importance of a healthy marriage to a child's well being.
The Marriage Coalition, in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, received $199,994 to test a curriculum for poor single parents that emphasizes the value of marriage and child support.
In Allentown, Pa., a group called Community Services for Children Inc. got $177,373 to work with local church groups in providing marriage education and other services to unwed couples.
But a wary Robert Boston, spokesman for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, wondered who would ensure that the programs receiving government grants aren't violating the separation of church and state law.
"Whether a person gets married or stays married is none of the government's business," Boston said. "It feels paternalistic for government to be interfering."
Bush, bypassing a reluctant Congress, signed executive orders last month that put parts of his faith-based initiative in motion. His steps help give religious organizations more of a chance to win federal contracts for a variety of social services.
Bush said, however, that no government money "will be used to directly support inherently religious activities," an assertion that has not satisfied skeptics.
The government has promoted marriage in the past, primarily through the 1996 welfare overhaul, but it has faced restrictions in giving money to religious organizations to advance that same goal.
Some Democrats in Congress and others object to the prospect that church groups will use the tax dollars to proselytize, and in doing so violate the constitutional separation of church and state.
"Some of these groups don't realize that they are supposed to run a secular program," Boston said. "When they take taxpayer money it can't be business as usual."
Sherri Z. Heller, commissioner of the Office of Child Support Enforcement, said the grants were approved long before Bush's executive order on faith-based initiatives.
"Courts, nonprofits, state agencies are all discovering that reaching out to local faith-based organizations is an effective strategy for making their programs work with populations that have been very difficult to reach, such as fathers coming out of prisons," Heller said.
Marriage Coalition Director Sandra Bender described her group as "a nonprofit organization of inter-religious clergy, mental health professionals and individuals dedicated to reducing the divorce rate and birth to unmarried parents through education."
The group, which advocates marriage, is not a religious organization, Bender said, but it does train clergy and counselors to help engaged and wedded couples.
"People go to churches. Seventy-five percent of people who get married get married at churches so that's where our customers are," Bender said.
In another grant aimed at strengthening marriage, the Alabama Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board got $200,000 to help poor, ethnically diverse single parents learn marital skills, improve their employment prospects and increase child support payments.
The Special Improvement Grants cover a range of family counseling and child support collection programs.
The goal is to "increase child support collections, promote fatherhood and healthy marriage, and help struggling families take care of their children," Thompson said.
