Survived by his wife

Last updated 2018 10 01 Survived by his wife is the topic of a video by comedian Alan King. You may wish to skip all of this commentary.  Nevertheless, do yourself the favour of getting a good belly laugh by watching comedian Alan King’s Survived by his wife (thanks to Allan Chinnery for that link). Last Saturday Ruth and I went to the celebration of her aunt Jenny’s 100th birthday.  Aunt Jenny survived her husband by 33 years.  He had passed away in 1977, at age 71. All of that anecdotal evidence would not stand up in a court of law, but the following excerpt from the website of Fathers … Continue reading

Response to a fatherhood survey

Updated 2018 04 05 Response to a fatherhood survey (Note 2018 04 05: The survey is apparently finished, and I have no idea what was done with the results of it. Having children specify how they should be raised is putting the cart before the horse.) You are encouraged to provide your own responses to: Fatherhood Survey We’re gathering evidence from a range of children, professionals and the general public in order to present a child-centred case demonstrating the importance of fatherhood. The hope for the project is that we’ll be able to identify, understand and raise awareness of the barriers to father-child relationships and to produce a set of … Continue reading

Goal Posts for Thompsons have been moved again

Goal Posts for Thompsons have been moved again JoNova Thompsons part 4: Every slope is a watercourse When Matt and Janet first came to Western Australia they were told they could run a feedlot without regular licenses as long as they were not within 100m of a watercourse. It makes a big difference. If a farm is a category 68, it can run thousands of cattle (and many dairy farms do) without being licensed. This is the ongoing saga of how Big-Government can use complexity to play Kingmaker. I didn’t think I’d ever find agricultural codes interesting, but by paying attention to the detail we can see just how powerful … Continue reading

URGENT — A call to action for the WUWT community

URGENT —A call to action for the WUWT community –  This is an archived article. Posted on September 18, 2010 by Anthony Watts I need your help, they need your help. Please read this whole story and consider if you can help. WUWT readers may recall this story: Death of a Feedlot Operator In which the anal-retentive government of West Australia has ‘licensed’ a family farm out of operation due to some shonky science and arbitrary application of the ‘sniff test’. Yes that’s right, cattle farms smell, so do pig farms, as does any farm. But now it’s reason to shut one out due to baseless complaints from the local greens. … Continue reading

A letter of thanks

A few days ago I sent out a list of links to recent posts at Dads & Things, and then I received a letter of thanks. On 15/09/2010 11:15 AM, Samuel M. Polhamus wrote back and stated: Dear Walter, Thank you for sending these articles out. I still am, and always will be, forever indebted to the contributions you’ve made for fathers and the rights of them and their children. Yes, as a political force to be reasoned with, we’re still fragmented and ineffectual. Yes, I agree, what our government does with our children once they are able to get their hands on them through the family courts is as … Continue reading

Four homosexual parents for one boy

Four homosexual parents for one boy Today I came across a story about an Australian judge having awarded child-visitation rights to two gay men who took turns donating sperm to two lesbians. The story appeared on the German-language blog http://www.in-australien.com, apparently a gay-rights-oriented blog, at http://www.in-australien.com/baby-mit-4-homosexuellen-eltern-das-gericht-fallt-ein-urteil_103692 The story is dated Sept. 15, 2010 and mentions that the court decision involves a lesbian couple in Melbourne, with no identification of where the two gay men hail from.  The judge in the case is ostensibly Linda Dessau, but I have no clue as to which court she resides at. Although I spent a considerable amount of time searching for English-language verification of … Continue reading

Defining the Purpose of Boys

Last updated 2018 10 02 Men’s News Daily, Friday, September 10, 2010 By J. Steven Svoboda On Defining the Purpose of Boys — Why has Michael Gurian, author of over twenty books mostly relating to children and/or gender, devoted a book to boys and purpose? In answer to that natural question, the author lists “some of the core issues of male purposelessness”, including schools not trained in caring for and motivating boys; media “attack[ing] males as defective and dangerous (and, quite often, just plain stupid) without also providing a variety of strong role models”; families lacking male role models or not understanding their critical importance; and “workplaces helping young women secure … Continue reading
