How many women do you know pay child support? I’ll tell you, probably a few but not many. The rest are off spending the hard earned money of some poor guy who works two jobs just to be broke. Yeah two jobs, and in some cases three; why because some cold hearted Circuit Court Judge ordered him to pay an outrageous amount of money for his child. I personally believe both men and women should be court ordered to pay child support. Kentucky Child Support guidelines states that child support will be based upon gross income. Gross income can be from any source, to include SSI benefits and welfare payments.

for other children; the support or alimony he pays is deducted from the overall calculation. It's only fair women want to be treated as equals and I personally believe both men and women should be court ordered to pay child support. Bureaucrats have tainted women into believing it takes a certain amount of money to provide for a child. If my memory serves me correctly it takes two to make a child, but yet these government bureaucrats feel they must do something about all these deadbeat daddies running around. Yeah child support sounds good doesn't it The court orders the father to pay a certain amount based on state guidelines that they believe should be spent on the child. Does anyone remember the Women's Rights Movement Of course you do in 1848 Seneca Falls, New York sixty-two women and thirty-two men gathered to sign the Declaration of Sentiments, this document kick off the American Women's Rights Movement. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; these two women ultimately spearhead the movement into the nineteenth century which resulted into the Nineteenth Amendment being ratified to the Constitution of the United States, which gave women the right to vote. They'll quit there jobs just get more child support out of the father, never mind if he can afford it. It's nice to see the Government is so concerned about the children; it took a damn bureaucrat to tell us how much to spend on our children. We as men are the victims of Child support agencies and federal legislation. And let's not forget the first National Women's Rights Convention which took place in Worcester, Mass, attracting more than 1,000 participants.
