I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

Apology to a Sociology Student

Mike Adams

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Dear Dr. Adams:

I just wanted to thank you for making this  semester the best I've had yet at UNCW.  I loved not only the content of the class but also your teaching style, which is the most effective that I have sat under as a student.  But most importantly to me, I didn't find myself squirming in my seat, as I have in other classes when certain political comments are made attacking the minority conservative Christian population on our campus.  You are truly the best professor I have had to date, and likely the best I will ever have.  And for that, I wanted to extend my sincere thanks, and ask you to keep doing what you are doing.  I only wish that everyone could have a class with you.
Thank you so much, for everything,

(Name Withheld)

Dear (Name Withheld):

Thank you very much for your kind remarks. I also want to thank you for sending some of your favorite quotes preserved last semester in the notes from your Introduction to Sociology course. I have cut and pasted (below) some of the angry remarks. They are followed by my own (hopefully) humorous rebuttals. As conservatives, we must always respond to liberal anger with humor. I would suggest posting these remarks on www.CampusReform.org to warn other conservatives about what they will encounter in SOC 105:
“Everybody else (other countries) looks at us (USA) like we all own guns and   still live like ‘the wild west’ with people just always walking around with holsters. I guess so with all those concealed carry permits you can just go get.”

It is extremely important for you to understand why your sociology professor does not support laws allowing for the issuance of concealed weapons permits. These laws have been shown to lower violent crime rates including rape. Sociology professors are aware that there have been many – the exact number is fifteen – refereed studies showing that concealed weapons permits reduce violence towards both men and women. However, feminists (like your sociology professor) committed themselves to a radical Marxist ideology long before these studies were ever published. They did so because Marxism cannot succeed in an armed society.

When the data began to show that concealed weapons permits protect both men and women from violence she (your professor) had a decision to make: 1) Would she commit herself to protecting women from rape, or 2) Would she commit herself to protecting her ideology from criticism. She chose the latter. This shows what sociology is and is not. It is a morally bankrupt discipline. It is not a science.

          “I've been trying to get the term "freshman" changed to "first-year".     ‘freshman’ is such a gendered term.”

I believe there should be a new course called SOC 123 “The Sociology of Irrelevance.” This would be followed by an advanced course called SOC 456 “The Irrelevance of Sociology.” That feminist sociologists actually spend class time fighting against the use of terms such as “freshman,” “mankind,” and “manhole” mandates (woman-dates?) only one conclusion: There is nothing of real importance left for the feminist movement to accomplish in this country.

That conclusion is warranted because America is the best place in the world for a woman to live and work. If feminist sociologists wish to become relevant again they should turn their attention to important issues such as the abuse of women in the name of Islam. Unfortunately, most (nearly all) feminists lack the moral courage to do so.
          “The really right-wingers are afraid of ‘losing their country.’ What does that     mean? It means they're afraid of losing the white, Christian, conservative dominance.”
The bigotry of such a statement is very easy to dissect. In the 1960s, Christianity – the religion that was the basis for the abolition of slavery – was, once again, at the forefront of the civil rights movement. The idea that Christianity is somehow intertwined with white dominance can be rebutted effectively with the following observation: Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Christian.

Martin was not Jewish. He was not an atheist. He was not an agnostic. He was a member of the most liberating religion in our world’s history.

          ”It is sad that we subject little boys to running around playing with toy AK-     47's.”

Here, your professor shows her ignorance of firearms. Little boys in America generally run around playing with toy M-16s – the weapon used to combat Marxist regimes. AK-47s are the weapons used to advance her ideology of Marxism. They can be found on Russian playgrounds. They can also be found in the hands of little Muslims all across the world. But those aren’t toys in the hands of Muslim children. They are real. And they are meant to be used to kill Jews. A Jewish professor needs to be aware of these crucial distinctions.

          “Nowhere in the constitution does it say we're capitalist, just democratic.”

Nowhere in the constitution does it say “partial birth abortion” or “homosexual sodomy.” I would urge you to give her a copy of that important document as a “holiday” gift.
        “(Regarding a picture of her standing in front of the Marx Memorial) - I was      going to send it out as Christmas cards, but I thought it was a bit much.”
I disagree with your professor. I’m giving out NRA memberships this year as Christmas gifts. I want to know who all of my communist friends are. A picture of someone standing in front of a Marx Memorial lets me know she’s a communist and should be given a life membership in the NRA. I can think of no better way to fight communism this Christmas than signing Marxists up for the NRA against their will. After all, they have been trying all year to give us national health care memberships against our will.

          “Women should have to pay less tuition since their education pays out less in the end.”

Actually, the statistic saying women earn only 77% of what a man makes is misleading – oops!, I mean, MS-leading. That pay differential is accounted for by women who choose to stay out of the workforce to have children. Your professor is not angry about persistent sex discrimination in the workplace. That would be the same as hating unicorns. The object of her hatred simply does not exist. She is angry at women who choose to stay at home and have children.

If anything, white, Christian conservatives should have to pay less in tuition when they take classes from angry sociologists. Based upon your experience, you deserve a full refund.

The "War on Christmas" is basically over ~ but the war on dads continues unabated

Some observations I made on the Politically Correct of the left "War on Christmas" column in the National Post.

Christopher Beam: The "War on Christmas" is basically over
Posted: December 22, 2009, 2:30 PM by NP Editor

While U.S. President Barack Obama has decided to send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan, he has overseen a precipitous de-escalation on another front: the war on Christmas.

The debates that have raged in years past — “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”? “Christmas tree” or “holiday tree”? — have largely quieted down in 2009. While it’s impossible to quantify, there are plenty of pseudo scientific indicators to suggest that, yes, the war on Christmas, with or without quotation marks, is over. Or at least in ceasefire...

Political Correctness (PC) would have us dab all truth with a cotton ball of opaque misery rendering it to obscurity. 

I am an agnostic. 

I hold all religions with an equal mix of peculiar  bewilderment and scorn for their patently absurd claims of being the only way to whatever version of Nirvana  lies at the end of life as we know it.  The latter is the probable cause of a vast amount of discord in the world throughout history.

Worst of all, however, is the dogma  of PC. It is a scourge created by the left to cover their inability to face challenges and search for blandness in the futile effort to have every body feel inclusive and get along.

Having said that I was raised in a country of nominal secularity that has as its foundation a belief in the birth of their God child, Jesus. It is a large part of the culture of this nation and for me it is not a celebration of a particular God but one that comprises a spirit of giving. In other words the meaning transcends a particular religion and becomes part of what we should ascribe to as humans.  When you have children to share this spirit with you know exactly what I am saying. 

Santa Claus is a pretty secular icon that descended from Christianity. He is actually, to paraphrase John Lennon who discussed the Beatles celebrity, more popular than the Christian God, at least amongst children and marketers.

I was blessed by having children who, like me as a child, got very excited over Christmas and what Santa might bring. I recall the mornings before 6 AM when I could hear their excited whispers emanating from the living room at the carefully wrapped gifts lying under the tree. 

These were precious memories and led to teachable moments about gift giving and how it was often better to give than receive. They may not realize that lesson until they have children or have an event that coincides with what was taught to reinforce the notion but it does add value to being human in a non-religious way that is consistent with some of the more benevolent teachings of many religions.

Christmas is a time to celebrate our culture and heritage in addition to a major religious grouping called Christianity. It is a wonderful period that should be celebrated for its spirit and for those of that religious group its religious beginnings. There is nothing wrong with the spirit it represents.

There is everything right with Christmas as a time for reflection and family, the latter the greatest gift of all. Family is our genetic heritage, which we created ourselves. We live on for eternity through them even when we pass away. Perhaps that is our metaphoric eternal life.

Family Courts, however, a part of our government, practice another form of political correctness by marginalizing a parent, in most cases the dad, having them become a visitor in their children's lives. This is done for a variety of reasons most of which have nothing to do with reality but everything to do with social engineering and a new form of patriarchy where the government (nanny state) becomes the new parent and guardian of the mom to satisfy the will of a form of victim feminism,  a scourge that puts fathers in the category of drone, whose only role is apparently the person who has the ability to provide economic support.
