Child Support is not the FED's calling and is an abuse of authority
by Richard Covington
In my book there's no such thing as a deadbeat father or deadbeat mother. This whole barbaric medieval era minded system that the Clinton Administration created is an extension of the women's movement. This system from hell garnishes the wages, tax refund checks and economical stimulus checks of below poverty non-custodial parents. This has been going on way before the double dip recession came into effect. Parents who owe child support can't obtain a passport, can have their credit rating admonished, can be incarcerated and have their drivers license suspended. "WHO IN THE HELL DO THE FEDS THINK THEY ARE" Parents are not criminals and should not be held hostage for money.
Damaging our credit rating and suspending our drivers license will only further decrease our marketability for employment. What's more, is that this system has created an atmosphere of DIMINISHED AUTONOMY, POVERTY, LOW SELF ESTEEM, HOMELESSNESS, DESTITUTION, CRIME, RECIDIVISM, SUICIDE and INCREASED TAXES. A lot of fathers can't afford to pay child support! We don't need the freaking FED's to manage our money. Managing our money is managing our lives for life aint about nothing but money! GIVE US BACK OUR AUTONOMY.
The very entity that we look onto for leadership executes abuses of power on its constituents. Child support enforcement is not the FED's calling! Free us from your bondage immediately for what is there to live for anymore. I'm a functional homeless man age 52 who is a veteran and college grad living on the streets of Miami. I'm homeless for a variety of reasons, i.e. can't find a job, wage garnishment, Hispanic dominated job market, employment discrimination, bad economy, an era where stubborn employers will not hire and train the college grads and most of all a DYSFUNCTIONAL GOVERNMENT IN WASHINGTON.
What about the taxes we pay in the sum of 30k to 60k per annum to incarcerate an inmate? More than 2 thirds of every state's fiscal budget is attributed towards corrections. It's no doubt that corrections is much more of a burden on tax payers than any so called deadbeat parent could ever be! There should have been a million man march to help stop the implementation of this system from hell. I was only able to earn $550 last year. I was due an income tax refund of $1100 but it was intercepted by the IRS and given to child support enforcement officials. I had zero income at that time and you mean that they could have at least given me half? I know you mothers are laughing but this is far from funny?
