Thousands of women criminals will avoid jail each year under plans to cut the number of cell spaces by 400.
By Tom Whitehead, Home Affairs Editor
Published: 6:45PM GMT 14 Dec 2009
The move, to be staggered over the next three years, will see the size of the women's prison estate cut by around ten per cent and could see entire jails closed down.
It is part of the ongoing policy by Jack Straw, the Justice Secretary, to reduce the number of women being jailed and increase the use of community penalties.
Mr Straw said only the most serious female criminals should be behind bars.
There are currently just over 4,800 prison places for women in England and Wales but under the Ministry of Justice plans, 300 will be cut by March 2011 and a further 100 will go by March the following year.
The savings will be spent on improving services to deal with women offenders in the community. The MoJ also announced £5 million to improve Approved Premises accommodation for women offenders who are being closely supervised on release from custody and £1 million to pilot a new project, from April 2010, to examine early intervention schemes for women when they first come in to contact with the criminal justice system.
Maria Eagle, the Justice minister, said: “We have already made good progress in taking forward our strategy to divert women from crime.
"Over the last two years I have ensured there is a specific push to direct resources to stop vulnerable women from becoming trapped in a cycle of crime.
"Women’s offending is a complex phenomenon which burden’s society, damage children and families, and creates misery for the women themselves."
I knew the UK was pussywhipped but I didn't think it was this bad. I believe it was British feminists who desired to exempt women from prison reserving that hell for men and now we see that become a reality. Gordon Brown has royally cut the balls off Britain.

For sheer entertainment value, nothing beats a United Nations global warming
conference, especially if you were one of millions of Americans holed up in
sub-freezing temperatures this past week.
We knew it would turn out this way two weeks ago when local prostitutes,
disgruntled with a proposal to keep them under wraps during the high-profile
eco-fest, threatened to offer their wares for free to convention-goers. (One
only wonders if liberated female attendees would also avail themselves of the
The carbon-neutral week kicked off according to plan as Global
Warmingist-in-Chief Al Gore, citing the research of Dr. Wieslav Maslowski,
warned summit attendees the Arctic could become completely ice-free in five
But hours later Gore's claim was refuted by the good scientist himself, who
noted, "It's unclear to me how this figure was arrived at. I would never try to
estimate likelihood at anything as exact as this."
On Tuesday it was revealed that Rajendra Pachauri, head of the UN
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is tied to a multi-national
industrial conglomerate that stands to take in hundreds of millions of dollars
by cashing in on unused carbon-offset credits:
And later that day outnumbered Danish police began clubbing rock-throwing summit
protesters like baby seals stranded on a wayward Arctic ice floe.
The following morning, Connie Hedegaard, Danish minister of climate and energy
and president of the UN conference, announced her resignation following
revelations of a secret "Danish text" being negotiated by industrialized
On Thursday morning, world leaders trudged through ankle-deep snow and
sub-freezing temperatures into the gleaming Bella Center to give their blessing
to a multi-billion dollar global transfer deal. Thereupon they gave a standing
ovation to Hugo Chavez, socialist president of Venezuela, when he blamed
capitalist avarice for the global warming menace.
All this was mere prelude as the eco-zombies awaited the arrival of House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her two Air Force jets, accompanied by 20 other House
Leaving Washington the night before, Pelosi explained to reporters, "We see
Copenhagen as a meeting about job creation — how do we move forward to create
millions of clean energy jobs and new technologies to keep America number one?"
But turns out she was only interested in job creation for women.
Because shortly before her Thursday afternoon press conference, Pelosi banished
from the room the six Republican congressmen who had joined her on the trip.
Then she stepped to the podium to offer this ode to global warming hysteria:
"Women have the most to gain and the most to lose in the climate crisis," Pelosi
declared. "The impacts are not gender-neutral; as the primary users, managers,
and stewards of natural resources, women feel the consequences first."
The first female Speaker of the House continued with her eco-feminist musings:
"Changing agricultural conditions will hit women hardest. In most developing
countries, women produce the vast majority of the household food supply. It is
the world's grandmothers, mothers, and sisters in most countries who fetch
water, gather wood and prepare meals. As resources become more scarce, so do
opportunities for these women to attend school, tend crops, and lift themselves
out of poverty."
What consensus-driven UN report appointed women as "the primary users, managers,
and stewards" of natural resources? What data-enhanced document concluded "women
produce the vast majority of the household food supply"? And when the ice caps
melt and the Napa Valley vineyards whooshed away in a climatological apocalypse,
will men somehow manage to escape unscathed?
I'm hoping Congresswoman Pelosi will answer these questions. Here's her email:
firstname.lastname@example.org or AmericanVoices@mail.house.gov Fax: 202-225-4188. And telephone:
Madame Speaker, I await your response.
That's not a bad idea. How about we all contact Polosi and protest this sexism reminding her that while she is an elected official she is to represent ALL the people not just women. Also notice how she kicked the male lawmakers who were Republicans out while she spewed her misandric hate,the mark of a coward.

Shortly after last week's Ft. Hood shooting massacre, Sgt. Kimberly Munley of the Killeen, TX, police department was widely credited as the heroic cop who brought Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's rampage to an end by shooting him four times while being wounded by gunfire herself. A Ft. Hood official told the media that the diminutive Munley, who was shot in both legs and one of her wrists, fired on Hasan twice, which then drew his attention to her, and then fired again while she was on the ground. But now it appears as though that account was inaccurate and that another Killeen police officer, Sgt. Mark Todd, was actually the person who fired the shots that brought down Hasan.
The widespread belief that Munley was the one who brought down Hasan, who survived but may be paralyzed according to his lawyer, began to unravel earlier in the week when an anonymous witness told the New York Times that he saw Todd, not Munley, bring down the Army psychiatrist as he attempted to reload his weapon. The witness said that Hasan shot Munley as she rounded a corner, knocking her to the ground. Hasan then turned his back to Munley as he attempted to put another magazine into his pistol, and it was then that Todd saw Hasan fumbling with the weapon and shot him, according to the witness.
Sgts. Munley and Todd, along with Ft. Hood officials, all declined to comment about the specifics of what happened , nor did Munley or Todd go into detail about them during a joint appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show. But Todd's wife, Lisa, told the paper that her husband had specifically requested that the Army leave his name out of any reports on the shooting, not wanting to draw media attention to himself as the sole hero of the day because "they were both in this together." Todd's mother, Mary, also weighed in, expressing dismay that the media was "giving this woman all this credit," adding "I don't want to diminish what she did, I just hope they give him credit too."
Though the official version of events won't be available until the military releases the results of its investigation, Todd told the New York Times in an interview Thursday that it was indeed he who fired the shots that brought down Hasan. He said that he and Munley both pulled up to the scene at the same time and, after receiving fire from Hasan when they ordered him to drop his weapon, each broke in different directions. After aborting an attempt to circle the building, Todd said he headed back to the front of the building where he saw Munley wounded on the ground. He said that he then ordered Hasan to drop his weapon a second time, which again prompted the gunman to fire upon him. It was at this point that Todd told the Times that he "neutralized him and secured him."
In the aftermath of the week-long confusion over who brought down Hasan, some are not holding back in criticizing the media and the military for their roles in the chaos -- the media for not not digging deeper and thus performing their jobs properly, and the military for being too secretive. Some have even questioned whether or not there might have been a racial component involved with crediting a white woman over a black man as the day's hero. But this fact remains unchallenged: On November 5, 2009, Sgt. Kimberly Munley and Sgt. Mark Todd both risked their lives in the line of duty to try to stop an armed man in the midst a homicidal rampage, so shouldn't they both be hailed equally as heroes for doing so?
-- Brett Michael Dykes is a contributor to the Yahoo! News Blog
Didn't the media go all gaga over the injured female who was creditted like she was the one who saved the day. I'm sure right wing feminists wet themselves thinking she was a Zena warrior princess and other things about strong women in the military and to keep the feminist in chief happy as well. This should prove that in the war on manhood truth is the first casualty.

Thanks to Markymark for posting this on his blog I thought it was so cool that I would repost it here. I for one am fucking fed up with women's shit and don't blame this man at all for the action he took. Instead of being a mangina and taking her shit he stood up to her and knocked her shit out like a real man would. I hope he prevails in this case.

BOYS face compulsory feminism programs in state schools across Victoria in a major push to prevent violence against females.
Possible classroom activities include students acting out scenes of sexual coercion after which students would suggest more appropriate behaviour.
A VicHealth report for the state Education Department calls for teachers to be trained in gender, violence and sexual health issues so they would be comfortable discussing "taboo" issues.
But it would help if teachers could "make the program fun", the authors said.
The report says programs for all students should start at primary level and be reinforced across all year levels in subjects including drama, English, science and sport.
They would combat common attitudes among boys such as young women are either "good girls or sluts", the report said.
It said feminist theories were best at explaining the link between gender power relations and violence against women, and must underpin the programs.
But the authors of the "Respectful Relationships Education" report admitted there was considerable community hostility to feminism, even among teachers and students.
"However, a feminist conceptual framework is essential both to reflect research on violence in relationships and families and to anchor the political commitments of the program," they said.
Australian Family Association spokesman John Morrissey said boys were already getting feminised education due to the falling number of male teachers in schools. "I'm sceptical if boys will respond to it if it is dressed up in feminist language and ideology," he said.
"Strident feminist propaganda won't wash with boys."
Report author Dr Michael Flood admitted there was always the risk of a backlash, but said it was crucial that students were taught that sexist attitudes and unequal relationships between the sexes were central to explaining violence.
"We need to do that in ways that are careful and respectful and don't make boys in particular feel blamed and demonised for the problem," he said.
"Not by shoving capital 'F' feminism down their throats."
Education Minister Bronwyn Pike said four schools would run anti-violence pilot programs from early next year.
Anyone who has heard of Michael Flood knows what a big eunuch he is with his pro-feminist stance.

1. Read the proposed legislation.
2. Read the news article.
3. Email everyone of the sponsors of this bill and thank them for proposing this bill. It takes guts to stand up to the rape cottage industry and they need to know that there is support out there for this legislation. Email them regardless of where you live. If this is successful in Pennsylvania it could spread to other areas including your own. The ass you keep out of prison maybe your own.

Wife 'lured husband to woods for drug-fuelled sex... then slit his throat so she could meet internet lover for first time'By Luke Salkeld
Last updated at 10:46 PM on 13th October 2009
A poet lured her husband into woodland for a drug-fuelled sex session and then slit his throat, a court was told yesterday.
Joanne Hale, 39, left him for dead so she could see a man she had met on the internet, a jury heard.
Hale gave her 43-year-old husband Peter a dose of a natural aphrodisiac called 'horny goat weed' before she blindfolded him and led him into local woods to act out her fantasy, it was alleged.
The couple kissed and 'rolled about on the leaves' as part of a 'playful game'.
Then Hale sat astride her husband as he lay face- down on the ground and slit his throat with a knife, before plunging it into his neck and chest several times, a jury was told.
It is alleged that she abandoned his bleeding body when she was disturbed by a passer-by, and drove to a nearby railway station for her first meeting with a man she had befriended on the internet. But police arrested her when she returned home.
She denies attempted murder and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
Hale publishes her poetry on the internet and, according to her website, likes to write verse about 'people, animals, love and everything that people care about'.
The couple, who married in February 2000, were watching television on December 27 when Mrs Hale suggested her husband take 'horny goat weed'.
Made using extracts from a leafy wild plant, the herbal drug is legal and is widely available to buy in capsule form.
It is used to treat erectile dysfunction and increase sexual desire.
Legend has it that its qualities were first noticed by a Chinese shepherd who observed an increase in promiscuous behaviour among his goats after they ate the plant.
Horny Goat Weed: Said to be named by goat herder 100s of years ago who noticed constant sexual behavior in his goats whenever they ate a certain weed
It is said to have been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
Mr Hale told the jury that he and his wife discussed how to prepare the drug - and that a mask used to relieve headaches was put over his face.
'Jo said it was quite unpalatable and I said I would like a drink with it,' he said.
At 6pm they left their home in Stapleton, Bristol, and walked to Stoke Park in the dark.
'I think, probably, a migraine cap was put on my head,' said Mr Hale.
'It was just a kind of sexual game. I enjoyed the game but I lifted it up because I wanted to see.'
He said he believed a sexual act was about to take place because it was his wife's fantasy which they had never acted out.
'We had a cuddle and a bit of rolling about in the leaves,' he said. 'I was happy at that point.'
He said his memory was 'hazy' from this point onwards but he remembered seeing his wife and a man before waking up in hospital.
The court heard that after slashing and stabbing her husband, Hale, was disturbed by a passing motorist.
Timothy Walker spotted two figures in his headlights - 'one on the ground, and one standing over'.
Hale is alleged to have fled the scene seconds later.
She is said to have then driven to Bristol Parkway railway-station where she had arranged to pick up postal worker Philip Sudol.
Hale allegedly told Mr Sudol, whom she was meeting in person for the first time, that she was separated, but that her husband had injured himself and she would get the blame.
Mr Hale had 'lifethreatening injuries' and was taken to hospital, the court was told.
The Hales were said to have been affected by stress after Mr Hale 'totally messed up' his PhD studies. He was also due to be made redundant. The trial continues.

I have been waiting for outrage over the decision by District Attorney Kathleen Rice (Nassau, N.Y.) not to file so much as one criminal charge against Danmel Ndonye – the Hofstra student who falsely accused five men of gang-raping her. Four young men were arrested on $500,000 bail, jailed for days, publicly IDed and villified. A fifth man was being sought by police when a videotape appeared and confirmed the consensual nature of the sex act in question. Ndonye recanted immediately.
What did Ndonye receive? She was sentenced to undergo mental health counseling and to perform 250 hours of community service. Rice explained ‘the walk’, “This agreement is the only way we guarantee that this woman gets the help that she needs and is held publicly accountable for what she’s done to our community." This is the same D.A.’s office that rushed to judgment about ruining the lives of 4 young men, hardly pausing for due process. As one of the men commented, "I think they should have gathered more evidence . . . looked at camera footage and tried to match up times and things like that before throwing us in and letting the wolves get us." Now the D.A.’s office is oh-so concerned about helping a "troubled" perjurer whose lies could have sent 4 innocent men to prison for decades, where they would have been raped, brutalized and then, afterward, forced to register as sex offenders in perpetuity.
My read on the situation? With elections for D.A. looming in November, Rice (a Democrat) was trying to avoid the explosion of racial politics that would have likely surrounded the prosecution of a black woman for accusing five Latino men of rape. In this, Rice may have miscalculated. Her main opponent Joy Watson (a Republican) is using the ‘free pass’ given to Ndonye against Rice. Watson told Newsweek that “Rice ‘avoided the judicial process’ in deciding not to prosecute the woman who falsely reported she was gang-raped at Hofstra University two weeks ago.”
It will be interesting to watch an election spin out which is based largely on whether or not to prosecute false rape accusers. I hope the outrage I've been waiting for arrives in the form of a voter backlash against Rice and her ass lands on the cold, hard N.Y. pavement.
Kathleen Rice is Mike Nifong in drag. I think racism is a flimsy excuse not to prosecute but apparently it exists everywhere prosecutors don't prosecute perjurers. It shows that women,particulary black women can falsely accuse someone of rape. First it was a black stripper at Duke that accused 3 white men of rape and now a black female student accuses 4 latinos of rape. But I guess as long as she don't accuse any "brothas" of rape the black community will still accept her. Where was Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on this one?

By Kimball Perry • THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER • October 2, 2009
CINCINNATI -- A woman who was fired from a previous teaching job for having sex with a student and who pleaded guilty last month to a sex crime with a minor is now employed at an all-boys Christian school.
Mary Ems, 44, of Springfield Township, is working at the Union Christian Post Graduate Academy, an uncertified school for males at least age 17.
“I have no comment and I will be contacting my attorney,” Ems said Thursday when The Enquirer called her for comment.
Calls to the school and the person believed to be its founder, Phillip “P.J.” Wilson, weren't returned.
Ems was a special education teacher at Winton Woods High School when she had sex with a student.
She pleaded guilty last month in a plea deal to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. She initially was charged with sexual battery, a felony that would have required her to register as a sex offender and could have sent her to prison. But because her victim refused to cooperate with authorities, prosecutors allowed a plea deal to a misdemeanor that, the judge indicated last month, likely will allow her to escape time behind bars and get probation.
That plea deal also required Ems to give up her certificate to teach in Ohio.
Despite that, Ems is working as a teacher at the all-boys school.
“We will certainly bring that to the court's attention at the time of sentencing,” said Julie Wilson, spokesman for the Hamilton County Prosecutor.
“We wanted to make sure she didn't have her teaching certificate because of that (conviction).”
The school is not certified by the Ohio Department of Education because it accepts students who are college age and isn't a public high school.
The school identifies itself on its Web site as having “outstanding faculty and staff, prides itself in developing young men into ‘Champions in Christ.“’
The Web site doesn't list a street address for the school, noting only that it is “located in suburban Cincinnati.”
Ems is to be sentenced Oct. 29 before Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Melba Marsh. She faces up to six months in jail but the judge indicated she'd impose probation.
Contrast that to this:
McAllen teacher gets 15 years in student sex case News
By Katie Lopez
Friday, October 02, 2009 at 6:44 p.m.
A state district judge from Hidalgo County sentenced a McAllen teacher to 15 years in prison in a student sex case during a Friday morning decision.
Former IDEA Academy teacher Ricardo Garcia, Jr. was first accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old female student back in May.
On Thursday, a jury found him guilty on three counts of having an improper relationship between an educator and a student and three counts of sexual assault of a child.
Garcia was acquitted of six other charges: three counts of aggravated sexual assault of child and three counts of improper relationship with a student.
“You have children and teachers...that's such an explosive emotional issue,” said defense attorney Jesus Villalobos. “These types of cases are different from other cases you'll see."
Garcia waived his right to have the jury decide his sentence
State district Judge Noe Gonzalez sentenced Garcia to 15 years in prison.
Garcia accepted the sentence and waived his right to appeal the guilty verdict.
"At this point, I think it brings closure to the case,” said Villalobos. “By accepting responsibility and accepting 15 years in prison--it'll bring closure to the family and close this matter out."
Villalobos said this type of case is hard on everyone because of that trust factor students should have with teachers.
"Anyone out there…administrators… school teacher… having thoughts such as that (sexual in nature toward a student) need to think twice about it,” he said.
As the final piece of this case is put to a close, families on both sides can start to rebuild their lives.
Garcia will have will to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
Notice the two tier justice system in this country,one for him and one for her.

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — A prosecutor has decided not to file criminal charges against a Hofstra University freshman who falsely said that she was gang-raped in a dormitory bathroom.
The prosecutor, District Attorney Kathleen Rice of Nassau County, said on Friday that the freshman, Danmel Ndonye, 18, must undergo mental health treatment and community service in exchange for not being prosecuted.
Ms. Ndonye, previously described by the prosecutor as ”a deeply troubled woman,” had claimed she was attacked after a dance party at a Long Island nightclub. Four men were arrested and a fifth was being sought when she recanted the story three days after making the charges.
The turning point in the case came when the woman was confronted with a videotape of the encounter, which indicated the sex had been consensual.
The four men in custody were released two hours after the woman changed her story.
Female prosecutor and female defendent. She just has to play down what Danmel Ndonye did. She probably just thought that men are expendable. Beside she prosecutes Ndonye to the full extent of the law then that would piss off the sisterhood and we can't have that. It's prosecutors like this that give men a raw deal in this society.

Let's turn this arguement around. What if Roman Polanski were a woman. After 32 years has passed would anyone want her blood? The manginas and feminists that condemn Polanski the man would probably excuse Polanksi the woman. How often have we seen female teachers given light sentences or turn it around and accuse their victims of rape? A lot and it is working. What is not working is the Constitution's Equality Clause,in fact that is being trampled. The media that condemns the man is the same one that excuses the woman. The same court that sentences the man to 10 years gives the woman probation for the same crime. If Polanski is successfully extradicted to the United States then he will be further cannon fodder for the rape hysteria machine.

By ERNST E. ABEGG and BRADLEY S. KLAPPER, Associated Press Writers Ernst E. Abegg And Bradley S. Klapper, Associated Press Writers – 2 mins ago
ZURICH – Director Roman Polanski was arrested by Swiss police as he flew in for the Zurich Film Festival and faces possible extradition to the United States for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl, authorities said Sunday.
Polanski was scheduled to receive an honorary award at the festival when he was apprehended Saturday at the airport, the Swiss Justice Ministry said in a statement. It said U.S. authorities have sought the arrest of the 76-year-old director around the world since 2005.
"There was a valid arrest request and we knew when he was coming," ministry spokesman Guido Balmer told The Associated Press. "That's why he was taken into custody."
Polanski, the director of such classic films as "Chinatown," "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Pianist," fled the U.S. in 1978, a year after pleading guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with the underage girl.
Polanski has asked a U.S. appeals court in California to overturn a judges' refusal to throw out his case. He claims misconduct by the now-deceased judge who had arranged a plea bargain and then reneged on it.
His victim, Samantha Geimer, who long ago identified herself publicly, has joined in Polanski's bid for dismissal, saying she wants the case to be over. She sued Polanski and reached an undisclosed settlement.
Balmer, the Swiss spokesman, said the U.S. would now have to make a formal extradition request. A U.S. Justice Department spokeswoman in Washington declined to comment on the case Sunday.
Polanski's French lawyer, Georges Kiejman, told France-Inter radio that it was "too early to know" if Polanski would be extradited.
"The proceedings must take their course," he said Sunday. "For now we are trying to have the arrest warrant lifted in Zurich."
Kiejman later told The Associated Press that France does not extradite its citizens and that U.S. authorities had never asked France to prosecute Polanski at home.
Balmer declined to explain why Polanski was never previously arrested in Switzerland, where he has often traveled or stayed. A 1996 interview with Canada's Menz magazine describes Polanski's visits to the luxury resort of Gstaad, where he regularly came to ski, attend festivals or escape from media pressure.
Earlier this year, Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza in Los Angeles dismissed Polanski's bid to throw out the case because the director failed to appear in court to press his request, but said there was "substantial misconduct" in the handling of the original case.
In his ruling, Espinoza said he reviewed not only legal documents, but also watched the HBO documentary, "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired," which suggests there was behind-the-scenes manipulations by a now-retired prosecutor who was not assigned to the case.
The Swiss statement said Polanski was in "provisional detention for extradition," but added he would not be transferred to U.S. authorities until all proceedings are completed. Polanski can contest his detention and any extradition decision in the Swiss courts, it said.
Polanski has lived for the past three decades in France, where his career has continued to flourish, and he received a directing Oscar in absentia for the 2002 movie "The Pianist." He is married to French actress Emanuelle Seigner, with whom he has two children.
He has avoided traveling to countries likely to extradite him. For instance, he testified by video link from Paris in a 2005 libel trial in London against Vanity Fair magazine. He did not want to enter Britain for fear of being arrested.
Rolf Haferkamp, a spokesman for prosecutors in Duisburg, Germany, declined to comment on why Polanski was not detained or arrested in Germany when he visited in 2008.
In Paris, Culture Minister Frederic Mitterrand said he was "dumbfounded" by Polanski's arrest, adding that he "strongly regrets that a new ordeal is being inflicted on someone who has already experienced so many of them."
Those comments referred to the fact that Polanski, a native of France who was taken to Poland by his parents, escaped Krakow's Jewish ghetto as a child during World War II and lived off the charity of strangers. His mother died at the Nazis' Auschwitz death camp.
Mitterrand's office said Sunday that he was in contact with French President Nicolas Sarkozy "who is following the case with great attention and shares the minister's hope that the situation can be quickly resolved."
Polanski worked his way into filmmaking in Poland, gaining an Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film in 1964 for his "Knife in the Water." Offered entry to Hollywood, he directed the classic "Rosemary's Baby" in 1968.
But his life was shattered again in 1969 when his wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four other people were gruesomely murdered in Los Angeles by followers of cult figure Charles Manson. Tate was eight months pregnant at the time.
Polanski went on to make another American classic, "Chinatown," released in 1974.
In 1977, he was accused of raping the teenager while photographing her during a modeling session. The girl said Polanski plied her with champagne and part of a Quaalude pill at Jack Nicholson's house while the actor was away. She said that, despite her protests, he performed oral sex, intercourse and sodomy on her.
Polanski was allowed to plead guilty to one of six charges, unlawful sexual intercourse, and was sent to prison for 42 days of evaluation.
Lawyers agreed that would be his full sentence, but the judge tried to renege on the plea bargain. Aware the judge would sentence him to more prison time and require his voluntary deportation, Polanski fled to France.
Zurich Film Festival organizers said Polanski's detention had caused "shock and dismay," but said they would go ahead with Sunday's planned retrospective of the director's work, including "Knife in the Water," "Chinatown" and "The Pianist." The festival runs from Sept. 24 to Oct. 4.
The Swiss Directors Association sharply criticized authorities for what it deemed "not only a grotesque farce of justice, but also an immense cultural scandal."
Klapper contributed from Geneva.
When courts are regulary dismiss or discounting charges against female teachers who abuse boys they sure are making a lot out of Polanski. If he is brought to the U.S. for trial and found guilty and given prison time then that is the most harsh punishment considering the average female rapist gets little time and most likely probation or charges dismissed.

Hofstra Student Could Face Criminal Charges for Rape Allegations
Friday, September 18, 2009
Hofstra University freshman Danmell Ndonye could face criminal charges after lying to police about being tied up and gang raped in a dormitory bathroom during a fraternity party.
Ndonye's allegations led to the arrest of four men whose names and pictures were widely circulated following her accusations.
Investigators said that a video of the sexual encounter shows Ndonye consenting to the sex romp. Ndonye later recanted her allegations of rape, confessing to police that she had made up the charges because she had been afraid to tell her boyfriend about the illicit bathroom encounter.
Ndonye has been suspended from school pending a disciplinary hearing, said Hofstra spokeswoman Melissa Connolly.
The spokeswoman also said that a suspension against Rondell Bedward — the only Hofstra student among the five men implicated — had been lifted.
The attorney for another of the accused men, 20-year-old Kevin Taveras, said that the video of the sexual encounter confirms reports that the victim was not forcibly attacked.
"It looks more like a porn movie," Victor Daly-Rivera said. "It showed just the opposite of what the allegations were. There was no tying up, there was no bruising, there was no screaming."

HB 252, presently before the Ohio legislature, would prevent a woman from having
an abortion without written permission of the fetus' father. If the father is
unknown, possible fathers must be provided to the doctor and prenatal paternity
testing is required. If the father refuses testing, the abortion is denied.

It's no secret that men have been hit hard by the recession. From November 2007 to November 2008, the U.S. economy lost over 2 million jobs — 82% of those losses were male jobs and only 18% female jobs. The reason is because men are concentrated in the sectors devastated by the downturn: manufacturing and construction.
This employment gap prompted University of Michigan economist Mark Perry to dub the downturn a "man-cession in the lipstick economy."
So in his Inauguration speech, Barack Obama glowingly promised, "We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together."
Within days, the newly-installed president unveiled his stimulus proposal, vowing it would create millions of "shovel-ready" jobs. And on February 17, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
That would get men back on the job and ready to rebuild the nation's infrastructure, persons assumed. And if you visit the government's ARRA website — recovery.gov — you'll see upbeat pictures of hard-hatted carpenters, energy-efficient courthouses, and gleaming hospitals.
But following passage of ARRA, unemployment continued to rise and the gender gap worsened. By May of this year, 10.5% of men, compared to eight percent of women, filled the ranks of the unemployed. That's the worst gender gap reported since 1948.
So where did the $787 billion economic stimulus package go wrong?
Part of the problem is the crass influence of pay-back politics. According to a July 8 USA Today report, counties that supported Obama in the November election received $69 per person, compared to $34 per capita in counties that voted Republican.
Another reason is the hefty outlay of stimulus money to state governments at the expense of local groups. "You don't fertilize a tree from the top down," quipped Democratic senator Tom Harkin of Iowa. "Too much of this is going to the top."
But far worse is the fact that the Obama Administration sold out to the feminists. Christina Hoff Sommers' recent exposé, "No Country for Burly Men," offers a stunning account of the legislative transmogrification: click here
As soon as Obama released his stimulus proposal, the National Organization for Women and other feminist groups swung into action. They knew the head of Obama's Council of Economic Advisors, Lawrence Summers, would be a push-over following the putsch at Harvard University.
So following a flurry of closed-door meetings, emails, petitions, and op-ed columns that derided Obama's "Macho Stimulus Plan," the White House staff set out to revamp the proposal. They released a report assuring that 42% of all jobs would go for females, openly admitting the new approach "skews job creation somewhat towards women."
When the final bill was signed into law, the feminists were ecstatic. NOW president Kim Gandy exulted how the law contained many of the "very specific proposals that we had made" with price tags carrying "numbers that started with a 'B' (as in billion)." And $325 million was allocated for family-busting domestic violence programs.
Less than four months later the Associated Press would report, "Most of the roughly $300 billion coming directly to the states is being funneled through existing government programs for health care, education, unemployment benefits, food stamps and other social services." In Georgia, two-thirds of the state government's stimulus money would pay social programs. In Mississippi, only 13% of the stimulus money is projected to go for road construction, according to the AP.
"We talked about 'shovel-ready' since September and assumed it was a whole lot of paving and building when, in fact, that's not the case," complained Chris Whatley of the Council of State Governments.
The irony is the male vote was a decisive factor in Obama's improbable quest to reach the White House. During the primary campaign, the white male vote propelled Obama to victory in 10 out of 17 states: www.renewamerica.com/columns/roberts/080624 . And last Nov. 4, males again played a crucial role, with 49% of men casting their vote for Obama, compared to 48% siding with McCain.
Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly believes the goal of the reverse discrimination that lards Obama's stimulus plan is to "make men, husbands, and fathers irrelevant as family providers." According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 7.5 million American males are now listed on the unemployment rolls. That's a lot of irrelevant men.

Sexual abuse claims that appear out of nowhere 25 years after the alleged abuse supposedly occurred against rich and famous men are impossible to aver — usually monetarily motivated — and a favorite con feminists apply to quickly elicit loads of hush money.
But this is one rare case we see no reason to investigate or defend.
Dr. Phil is a male-feminist psychologist who built an illegitimate empire improperly blaming men for women's feelings, problems, and personality disorders.
Unfortunately for Dr. Phil, being a shark does not protect him from being eaten alive by other sharks possessing the physical gender advantages he pretends to assume. Feminist women do not care which rich men they blackmail.
The man is getting what he truly deserves — a large dose of his own poison patent medicine. Perhaps this will jolt him to reality? If not, let the shadenfreude roll!
"DR. PHIL SEXUALLY ABUSED ME!"
"Dr. Phil is a monster!" Those are the angry words of a former patient of Dr. Phil McGraw, who is revealing the shocking story of the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of the TV shrink!
Sara Morrison is speaking out in a world-exclusive ENQUIRER interview - divulging sickening details of how talk-show titan Oprah Winfrey's former protege repeatedly fondled her, sexually abusing her while she was being treated by him.
The 44-year-old mother of one also reveals authorities were called in to investigate the abuse, threatening Dr. Phil's career as a psychologist and his marriage to wife Robin, who was outraged by the charges.
"Not a single day has gone by when I haven't been affected by what Phil McGraw did to me," Sara told The ENQUIRER.
"He profoundly affected the course of my life. The world should know this man is a predator and a bully. He shouldn't be telling Americans how to live their lives, how to improve themselves."
Sara was a college sophomore home for the summer when she sought treatment from Dr. Phil in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1984.
"I suffered from low self-esteem, and Iwas depressed, lonely and suicidal," recalled Sara. "Phil was extremely insistent that I call him all the time, and he would call me.
"He wanted to see me three or four times a week - as a patient."
While treating her that summer, Dr. Phil did nothing improper, she says. But his attitude changed completely the following summer when, in a highly unethical move, he paid Sara to work as his intern, while charging her as a patient at the same time.
"The first day I showed up for work, Phil had his hands all over me," she recalled.
At the time, the then 34-year-old psychologist and his second wife Robin had been married for eight years, but that didn't stop his sexually aggressive behavior, Sara said.
"Phil would pull me down to sit in his lap while he talked on the phone to patients, other doctors, even his wife! He'd be running his hand up and down the inside of my thigh all the way up to my panties."

Women are more important than men and we are more expendable. They are smarter and they also are responsible for reproduction. We don't carry that burden. Notice how much better girls do in school now that their potential has been realized. If we don't wise up and realize they are better than us, then the so called men haters will never like us. Come to reality, women are better than men. Look at your daughter why is it she is so much smarter than your son?
See if a single woman disagrees. Only insecure men get angry and fight about it. That shows you something. I am a man that is willing to admit it. Too bad more aren't so willing. The world would be a better place.
Of course there's this:
Look at all the damage men have done to the world what is wrong with handing the power over to the better sex? Most men are not successful without a woman but a woman can succeed without a man despite the disadvantages they have. Why do girls score higher in school and are more likely to have a college degree? So tell me how women are no superior.
Let's rip apart his arguements:
Women are more important than men and we are more expendable. They are smarter and they also are responsible for reproduction. We don't carry that burden. Notice how much better girls do in school now that their potential has been realized. If we don't wise up and realize they are better than us, then the so called men haters will never like us.
How are women more important than men? It takes a supercomputer to put replace a man but only blow up plastic to replace a woman. Can women reproduce independently of a man? (sperm donations still require a man) Men carry the financial burden whether they want to or not. Manginas like you gave women all the power. They do better because of lies furthered by feminists and manginas,such as yourself. Man haters love men just as nazis love jews.
See if a single woman disagrees. Only insecure men get angry and fight about it.
Because it fits their "blame men for every damn thing" when in reality if it weren't for males,especially white males she would be fighting coyotes for her food. One of us is insecure and it's not me junior. I'm quite comfortable in my masculinity.I'll bet your not and must appease feminists at all costs.
So now, we are so close to having our cake and eating it. Here are just a few examples.
1) We can take you to the cleaners in divorce. No suggestion of equality there. We can have affairs and divorce you and we STILL get the house and maintenance for as long as we need. There is now absolutely no risk in a woman filing for divorce. You men don't even have the right to shag us any more. More and more women are making their husbands live celebate lives in marriage. Once we have that ring on our finger we rule! I am only 27. I have been married three times. Each one I stayed with for three years and then took for every penny I could get. You see, we only have to convince a judge of "irretreivable breakdown" of the relationship. And how is that determined? Easy. When ONE party does not wish the relationship to continue. My current husband needs another year I would say. The business he has built up is not quite where I need it to be yet. When it is, he will go the same way as the others. The house is already mine "for tazx reasons". At least thats what he thinks. I "allowed" my name to be put on the deeds, but he will find come the day that this just means the house is mine already. I tend to go for cash settlements with regard to maintenance which leaves me free to start again. Not that I need to now. By the time I have ditched this poor sap, I will have more than enough to live a very good lifestyle with for the rest of my life. Even if money starts to run short I can always do it again. It's not as if I have to have sex much either. I pick men who are on the way up building their buisnesses. The hours they put in mean they are usually too tired and if they have affairs with their secretaries, well, that just makes it easier for me.
2) We get far less severe prison sentences for the same crimes. We can even murder our new born children and it is written off as Post Natal Depression. Women's groups all over the world are working for the day when no woman will ever be sent to prison for any crime. ANd trust me, that day will come.
3) In the work place not only do we get paid for taking time off to have children, but now we even get pay rises while we are off, an absolute right in law to return to the job we left and in some cases now, we even get promoted while we are on leave. Employers have to invest in our training, but we are free to screw them over by taking all the training and qualifications we can get of of them and then leaving.
4) We now have senior politicians who advocate "positive descrimination" . In other words, if you are a white male, you are where you belong. At the bottom of the heap. Women are eased into top jobs and ministerial positions in Government. The Sisterhood is alive and well and working beautifully. The Labour Government, always breathtakingly stupid has actually gone as far as prohibiting the selection of male candidates in some wards. Fantastic.
And you poor men. What can one say? All you need is a little show of panty now and then and you are putty in our hands. You and you alone have allowed us to take this supremecy and you have done so without a whimper. When I joined the feminist movement, I didnt really buy into the more vitriolic mantras of "all men are pigs" and "the only good man is a doormat", but now I see you for what you are. A means of providing what I want.

The latest development in a matter we've reported on before is here (Kansas City.com, 7/7/09). The governor of Missouri has signed into law a bill that allows men two years after they've been adjudicated to be a child's father to contest the matter in court via genetic testing.
If a test proves the man is not the biological father, he would be excused from previous child-support debt and would have criminal nonsupport convictions removed from his record, under the new Missouri law that takes effect Aug. 28.
The law is obviously a step in the right direction. It gives men some actual control over obligations that courts so often place on them without their knowledge or consent. According to the article, paternity in Missouri was often established by a man's failure to respond to a paternity suit filed by a woman. As we've seen before, his failure to respond, whether due to his own negligence or the fact that he didn't receive notice of the suit, resulted in a default judgment being taken against him. That meant 18 years of child support for a child that may or may not have been his, with no opportunity to establish the truth.
That in turn meant that, if the child were not his, another man shirked his responsibility toward the child. It also encouraged mothers to lie about who the father was and where he was. Since lying by women in paternity or divorce cases about either or both of those matters is rarely punished, the law tended to encourage misrepresentation.
That has now changed in Missouri. It's a small step, but it gives men and putative fathers more power in family courts.

Sonia Sotomayor: Supreme Misandrist?
By Carey Roberts May 27, 2009
Does this remark make you want to head for the hills?
“I would hope that a wise Caucasian man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach better conclusion than a Latina woman who hasn’t lived that life.”
A male faculty member who made such a claim would be laughed off of any college campus. But a slightly-revised version of that remark actually was made at the University of California at Berkeley. This is what Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor had to say at a Law and Cultural Diversity lecture she gave in 2001:
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
Punctuating that loopy logic, she then opined,
“Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences,…our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.”
Physiological or cultural differences? Gender and national origins? Let’s come right out and proclaim it to the rooftops: Having female genitalia and being able to roll your R’s makes you a better judge!
Here’s another Sotomayor smoker: “I simply do not know exactly what the difference will be in my judging. But I accept there will be some based on my gender and my Latina heritage.”
That’s right, she’s admitting that unconscious biases may taint the impartiality of her legal opinions.
And again: “I further accept that our experiences as women and people of color affect our decisions. The aspiration to impartiality is just that — it’s an aspiration because it denies the fact that we are by our experiences making different choices than others.”
Am I losing it or what? Isn’t she saying because she’s a woman, impartiality is merely an “aspiration”?
Apparently that notion was ricocheting through her brain last year when she ruled in a reverse discrimination case involving 19 white firemen in New Haven. It seems that none of the Black firefighters were qualified to be promoted. Sotomayor’s decision? Not allow any of the male firemen to be promoted, either.
That’s right, if Kwame and Keisha can’t qualify for an ‘A’ in chemistry class, then Jacob and Jennifer will have to settle for a ‘C’ as well.
Now you can begin to understand why out of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor and later appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, three of them have already been reversed. And if the Supreme Court sides with the New Haven firemen, as many believes it will, her reversal scorecard will register a dismal four out of six.
So until the Supremes render their decision next month, let’s just cross our fingers and hope no three-alarm blazes break out in New Haven.

“It's turned into sort of a love story," Morris told the Associated Press. "I realize it had a sick twist at the beginning, but they're both adults now. They're both married by the state of Washington.”
If the genders had been reversed would everyone be welcoming a male rapist with open arms and a forgiving attitude? More likely it would vigilantes taking the law into their own hands and the police letting them get away with it. As far as Morris is concerned if this mangina would be anally raped I wouldn't be in such a rush to punish either considering he would probably wanted it that way. Let's see how much time Letourneau got: 6 years and the permission from the young man's mother. If this were a man he would still be in prison and if he kept in touch with the victim he would be looking at additional time,no sympathic mother or public and most likely Morris would not be throwing a theme party for him either.
It's like I said in the past; it's not about getting rapists it's about getting men,plain and simple.

wow... you people are sick! obviously if an order of protection was placed on the man then he did something that hurt the woman physically or threatened her physically, and if the order of protection is broken then obviously her life is in danger! If GPS tracking systems are the only way to keep her and or her children safe then i honestly dont see a problem with it... how would you like if your wife, girlfriend or mother was being stalked my some random man or an ex husband... you would feel the same way. Its very sad how many women and children get killed everyday because of things like this.
Anonymous you are wasting your time attempting to educate the uneducatable. It seems as though Masculist most likely has a history of DV or will in his future based on his rantings. He lacks insight into the real history and every day experiences of women and picks topics to fit his own diluted version of reality. From an individual who works in this area and knows the truth, this entire blog does nothing more than prove why women have had to fight for their rights and why they must continue doing so. Masculist and like-minded individuals will never have an army big enough to stop my from fight for equality for all human beings.
With endorsements such as these we must be doing something right. It's one thing when your friends endorse you but when your enemies do it it is something else. Like I said I must be doing something right.

Here's the latest--more of the same from another judge scared of the feminists. His 2 page opinion is attached.
April 24, 2009
Ruling in Favor of Columbia’s Women’s Studies
A Federal Judge dismissed a lawsuit challenging Columbia’s Women’s Studies Program for violating Title IX and the Constitution. The attorney and one of the plaintiffs, Roy Den Hollander responded, “When it comes to Men's Rights, judges act with an arrogance of power, ignorance of the law, and fear of the Feminists.”
Judge Lewis A. Kaplan mischaracterized the central claim of the case as a violation of the Establishment Clause which he called “frivolous… absurd and without merit.” Den Hollander, replied, “The only thing frivolous and absurd is men looking for justice in the courts of America. It’s time we find justice elsewhere.”
Judge Kaplan irrationally ruled, “Feminism is no more a religion than physics.” Den Hollander replied, “Feminism believes that the differences between the sexes are the result of social conditioning. Science, which includes physics, disagrees.” Den Hollander added, “Religion means an irrational belief system. What’s more irrational than believing sexual roles have nothing to do with genetics or evolution or that because of sex, one group is entitled to preferential treatment. The Judge obviously never studied science, but clearly believes in Feminism.”
“What do you think his decision would have been if a college offered only Men’s Studies but no Women’s Studies?” Den Hollander asked.
In accepting the Magistrate’s decisions, Kaplan concluded that the two plaintiff alums, attorney Roy Den Hollander and recent Columbia College graduate William A. Nosal, suffered no harm because they did not enroll in a Women Studies’ course or were denied admission to one.
“Judge Kaplan obviously ignored the equal protection and Title IX arguments to give us and the class of men the bum’s rush out of court,” said Den Hollander.

Here's the latest in the suit against Columbia University's Women's Studies program. It's an interim decision in favor of preferential treatment for girls--as expected from judges steeped in their arrogance of power and ignorance of the law.
April 15, 2009
Interim Ruling in Favor of Columbia’s Women’s Studies
A Federal Magistrate Judge recommends the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging Columbia’s Women’s Studies Program for violating Title IX and the Constitution.
Magistrate Kevin Nathaniel Fox, a Columbia graduate, concluded that the two plaintiff alums, attorney Roy Den Hollander and recent Columbia College graduate William A. Nosal, suffered no harm because they did not enroll in a Women Studies’ course or were denied admission to one.
“The Magistrate completely miss-read the complaint, or only read Columbia’s response,” said Den Hollander. “Under Title IX, it is the absence of an opportunity for an equal educational experience that is the injury.” “When a college only has a guys’ rugby team, the injury to girls who want to play rugby is that there is no girls’ team.” “Mr. Nosal and I told the Court we tried to take Men’s Studies’ courses at Columbia, but there were none—that’s the injury.” “Why this Judge thinks we had to enroll or try to enroll in Women’s Studies’ courses is beyond me.” “It’s not the law, and I like to think I’m not that masochistic.”
The Judge also found no equal protection injury, once again because the plaintiffs did not enroll in a Women’s Studies’ course or try to. The discriminatory harm is that Women Studies give females an advantage that prevents guys from competing on an equal footing in education, the work place, the courts, the culture, and society as a whole. Now you might disagree with that, but that is what the complaint alleges, and at this stage in a case, what the complaint says is considered true. “Obviously the Judge interjected his only factual and ideological beliefs in order to recommend dismissal,” said Den Hollander. “You’re not suppose to do that, but it happens all the time, especially when taking on the post-modern Feminists in a system where men just don’t count.”
Den Hollander continued, “The Judge considers the discrimination against the plaintiffs as insignificant, a ‘subjective chill—he calls it.’” The U.S. Supreme Court says differently: ““Discrimination itself, by perpetuating ‘archaic and stereotypic notions’ or by stigmatizing members of the disfavored group as ‘innately inferior’ and therefore as less worthy participants in the political community, … can cause serious noneconomic injuries to those persons who are personally denied equal treatment….” Heckler v. Mathews, 465 U.S. 728, 739-740 (1984).
“The Courts are suppose ‘to protect unpopular individuals … and their ideas from suppression—at the hand of an intolerant society,’ McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Com'n, 514 U.S. 334, 357, 115 S.Ct. 1511, 131 L.Ed.2d 426 (1995), but today in America they are essentially useless for protecting the rights of men—probably time for a different strategy,” remarked Den Hollander.
The Magistrate Judge’s recommendations go to Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, who will decide whether to accept, reject or modify them—bet he accepts them, and then there will be an appeal to the Second Circuit.

But in other ways I see the times they are a changing (Bob Dylan speak) I see advocates such as Marc Rudov,Glenn Sacks and Tom Leykis speaking out on our behalf. I'm confident Leykis will be back on the air again. I'm trying to look at the bright side of this and I've tried to for the last 16 years. This isn't a retirement it is a cleansing. Cleansing in that a lot of misconceptions had been washed away. Intially I thought that the majority of men hadn't heard about men's activism or men's rights but now I discover they don't care. But perhaps like I said things are changing. Let's see what the future brings.

Carey RobertsLadies, Want Job Security? Just Scream â€˜Abuse!â€™
2009-02-03 at 3:26 pm · Filed under Vox Populi
As lawmakers tediously debate the economic stimulus plan, Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard of California is pushing for change that we can really believe in. Itâ€™s called the Security and Financial Empowerment Act â€“ SAFE for short â€“ a bill that she and Rep. Ted Poe of Texas introduced in the Congress this past week.
The concept is so simple, itâ€™s amazing no one dreamed this up before.
Hereâ€™s how it works: All you have to do is trot down to the local courthouse and convince the judge your husband or boyfriend did something that caused â€œsubstantial emotional distress or psychological traumaâ€ â€“ those are the words from the SAFE bill: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-739
The bill never defines those words. So exactly what is emotional distress or trauma?
Remember during the Super Bowl when your heartthrob let loose a terrifying groan after Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner threw that boneheaded first-half interception? Or when he issued that blood-curdling whoop when the Steelers grabbed the lead in the final 35 seconds?
As we all know, watching professional football multiplies menâ€™s proclivity to domestic violence, and any strange utterance signifies he may be teetering on the brink. Of course you were frightened and traumatized, werenâ€™t you? Congratulations, you are now a victim of battering!
Donâ€™t want to be bothered with a trip to the courthouse? Then all you have to do is sign a sworn statement. Perjury is never prosecuted in these cases, so nothing to worry about here.
So youâ€™re a certified victim of domestic violence, youâ€™re coming unglued about the economic crisis, and you donâ€™t want to lose your job. Now what? Simple. Just tell the boss you were manhandled by your partner.
Now settle back and get ready for all the bennies! The list is pretty long, so you might want to take notes.
Most of all, you have lifelong job security — because the bill prohibits the employer from ever firing you! Maybe you think Iâ€™m exaggerating, but Iâ€™m not. Section 303 says: â€œAn employer shall notâ€¦dischargeâ€¦the individual [who is] a victim of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.â€
You donâ€™t even have to prove the domestic violence caused your job performance to lag. Just being a certified victim will do.
Thatâ€™s only for starters.
If passed, the bill will entitle you to take 30 days of emergency leave every year. That will allow you to obtain counseling, seek legal assistance, move to a new house, or, as explained by the bill, take â€œother actions to increase the safety of the employee.â€ Obviously a little vacation jaunt to Florida can do wonders to protect you from your abuser.
And what if you simply donâ€™t want to work? Again, Rep. Roybal-Allard offers hope! Because Title II of the bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to grant you a new entitlement to unemployment compensation.
Most lawmakers wonâ€™t read every word of the proposed bill, so they probably wonâ€™t notice that Rep. Roybal-Allard has pulled the wool over their eyes. Because near the end of the bill, she cleverly switches from â€œdomestic violence,â€ which implies physical harm, to â€œabuse,â€ which of course can mean anything. (Youâ€™ve heard about our national epidemic of plant abuse, right?)
So Roybal-Allard suitably calls Title IV of her bill the â€œVictims of Abuse Insurance Protection Act.â€
That part of the bill prohibits the insurance company from canceling the health insurance for any victim of abuse. But the guarantee doesnâ€™t just apply to persons who have already suffered abuse, the promise also extends to any person who â€œis, has been, or may be the subject of abuse.â€ Of course, â€œmay be the subject of abuseâ€ qualifies just about every living soul in the entire U.S. of A.
So there you have it, President Obamaâ€™s stealth plan for universal health coverage, neatly tucked away in Title IV of the Security and Financial Empowerment Act.
To top off the deal, any aggrieved person can sue the insurance company in state or federal court. She (or he) can be awarded compensation and punitive damages, based on the flimsiest â€œpreponderance of evidenceâ€ standard. It doesnâ€™t get any better than that.
So câ€™mon girls, what are we waiting for? As they like to say in south Texas, letâ€™s git while the gitting is good!
Looking to Make Good Money? Why not Abuse Shelters!
2009-02-16 at 4:54 pm · Filed under Vox Populi
In hard economic times, you have to be on the constant look-out for lucrative opportunities. So have you checked into the domestic violence industry?
This $4 billion-a-year industry has unlimited upside potential thanks to its irresistible message: â€œHelp us protect the victims of battering and abuse.â€ Domestic violence entrepreneurs have proved to be adept at broadening the definition of abuse so it now encompasses anything a man does that a woman doesnâ€™t like. Thatâ€™s what we call an unparalleled growth opportunity.
These programs are no longer the back-alley operations you once imagined. Some shelters now resemble an upscale hotel, complete with internet access, a childcare center, beauty salon, and pet care facilities.
Shelters enjoy a variety of profit centers. One of their favorites is to drive down to the local courthouse to get a restraining order. For $300 a pop, itâ€™s incredibly easy money. At the Bethany House of Northern Virginia, â€œWomen with almost no marital problems are declared abused and are coached by the staff to go to court and get a protective order against their husbands,â€ recounts a former shelter volunteer.
As a result, many shelters have become multi-million dollar operations. In Florida, the average shelter income exceeds $1.9 million each year. In Bridgeport, Conn. the Center for Women and Families takes in well over $3 million.
With all that loose change floating around, itâ€™s not surprising that shelter heads would want to cut loose every once in a while.
That got Florida shelter directors in trouble a few years ago when news leaked out of a retreat to be held on pricey Captiva Island where four-star resorts tout â€œbeds with triple sheeting and 300-thread-count linens.â€ According to the Miami Herald article, a state manager had â€œinstructed her staff last summer to â€˜manipulateâ€™ the agencyâ€™s contract with the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence to hide the costs of the retreat â€˜so no one would knowâ€™â€ that Florida taxpayers were footing the bill.
Another attractive feature of the abuse industry is the near absence of regulatory hassles and paperwork demands. When youâ€™ve dedicated your lifeâ€™s work to helping battered women, why should anyone have to fret about time cards and expense reports?
But if youâ€™re going to cut corners, just be sure you donâ€™t get caught.
At the YWCA abuse shelter in Knoxville, Tenn., managers got so busy helping victims that they forgot to fill out their tax and audit reports. Last summer the local United Way cut off funding because of the facilityâ€™s slip-shod accounting practices.
At the South Central Region Domestic Violence Coalition in Oklahoma, staffers Cindy Lou Shores, Wenona Barnett, and Angela Camp were caught red-handed taking federal grant monies from the groupâ€™s account at the Payne County Bank. Last March Shores was sentenced to 17 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $170,000 in restitution.
A number of shelter scams have been reported. My investment advice: Steer clear of these flim-flam operations.
Many shelters are involved in immigrant running operations. Like the SHIELD Foundation in Phoenix, Ariz., which coaches Russian women to file restraining orders, gets their husbands or boyfriends thrown into jail, and then strips his house of anything that can be hawked on the Black Market.
In Milwaukee, engineering professor Michael Wnuk found himself caught up in a Green Card hustle when his new Polish wife cleverly staged a public confrontation scene and then ran off to a local abuse shelter. According to the police report, there were â€œno injuries in the spot where she reported she was hit.â€
In Mountain View, Calif., a donate-your-car-for-a-worthy-cause operation started the Community Fellowship for Battered Women. In 2002, the donated cars were re-sold for $186,000, but only $10,000 went for program services. The shelter residents turned out to be drug addicts, not victims of battering. Women are welcomed with open arms â€œIf they just tell a good story and they are very persistent,â€ admits shelter owner/car dealer Gary Kegel.
Just down the road in Palo Alto, Calif., the North American Islamic Shelter for the Abused bills itself as the â€œfirst Bay Area domestic violence program sensitive to the needs of Muslims.â€ But the Atlas watchdog group has a different story to tell — the shelter is actually a â€œbogus Islamic charityâ€ that â€œhas no shelter and offers no services other than referral to government shelters.â€
There is no requirement that shelter workers take a vow of poverty, and many shelter directors are rewarded handsomely for their efforts. In Dallas, Family Place director Paige Flink lives the good life with $163,000 in salary and benefits.
In rural Lake City, Fla., Another Way head Donna Fagan receives $95,000 â€“ thatâ€™s a bigger haul than area bank presidents. And shelter managers routinely pilfer donated toys, jewelry, and entertainment tickets, former employees reveal.
So who says you canâ€™t do well by doing good?
