An unfortunate set of circumstances

Sun 29th October 2006:

I just read an article on young men in our mental health services, written by a young mans mum. Brilliant, best article in ages! It rang bells for me of countless tales I hear in a supporting role for men of all ages. There has for so long been a movement to turn our men […]

Mental health and our Teenage boys

Jim Bagnall – Family Court should follow Australia

Thu 26th October 2006:

On Newstalk 1ZB: Children’s best interests should be central Great to see a positive message getting reported straight, I hope the reporter’s job is safe. A pity they didn’t get the Father’s Coalition name correct! “…it is time to stop picking sides in custody battles and find what is best for the child.” His comments […]

Children Banned From Playing Tag in New England

Dateline: US From: Honor Network Author: Pit Bull That’s right, certain schools have now banned the Game of “Tag” by stopping it in its tracks in area schools in the New England region of the US. With all that’s wrong with the world, the PC types are after the little things in our kids’ lives […]

Child Support Forum.

Link to Scoop Project Re-Union Press Release. We have been cutting fathers off at the knees for the past 20 years, we are paying the price socially and politicians are still not prepared to front up to the legislation that is the driving force behind social decay.

To be a feminist or not?

Let’s have some fun. Do you want to know what the feminist are doing with the tax-payers money? Hmmm… Let’s see. Firstly, I need to point out that I have not spent tax payers money on researching this so I don’t have all the credibility (shite) to go with it although I would love to […]

Nobody’s Child.

The commission’s founding father, Mr Dunne, admits he had hoped the commission would be more vocal on family issues. Stuff Article. But he does not agree it has been given too wide-a-brief, or is replicating work. “We worked very hard on the definition . . . It’s important — it seems to me — for […]

Streets of Shame – John Hudson.

Tue 24th October 2006:

TVNZ 1’s program ‘Sunday’ just keeps on bringing out the truth for New Zealanders. We spend some nights on the mean and violent streets of south Auckland. Teenagers out of control and it’s a big problem for law enforcement. Why is it happening? What are the police and the local community doing about it? We […]

Dissing Men

From: Australia Author: Jim Macnamara at Online Opinion Commentary: Intrepid Via: Honor Network Stats to Back Up What We Already Know From Experience (Use these for Reference with those in Denial) Here is a piece by a Aussie columnist showing that men’s activism has more behind it than just passion for the cause, by relating […]

Carnivorous Collins out for blood.

Sun 22nd October 2006:

I wasn’t impressed with the Herald of Sunday article on child support. Judith Collins has obviously enlisted the help of some of our lame journalists, to promote her cause. Any journalist with an ounce of credibility would have had opposing views in their article. Perhaps the suggestion here is that there is no opposing point […]

Hearld / Judith Collins attack dads

? The Sunday Hearld and Auntie Judith? a at it again. So lets look at the quality of Journalism that the Sunday Herald provides in this article. Stephen Cook showcases how lamentable the quality of journalism on Child Support Tax debt actually is. —— 1) Focusing on “387 fathers” who are alleged to owe “6.3 […]

Violence and our teenagers

Fri 20th October 2006:

So, while we sit back and watch our country turn into a COMPLETE frenzy over women being safe from even a hard word, we need to ask ourselves “Do our youth have a hope for a future?” My 2 eyes and ears have been watching and hearing some really disturbing facts. Over the last week […]

The document suggests rewarding volunteers for their time by setting a nominal hourly rate which they could use to claim a tax rebate. Link:

Family Violence Courts.

Link to Bad News. Hit the link, scroll down to legal issues, listen, pray, then imagine the goal posts fading into the distance. Yes they have done it again, the girls have changed the rules.

Above the bottom line.

Wed 18th October 2006:

For some reason I can’t make comments on Menz, so I will post this, because I it is important to teach society what the individual reality is. It was intended as a comment to the bottom line. I remember writing a comment a while back to this effect. When you look at what a person […]

Men’s rights sites blocked

Tue 17th October 2006:

If you ever get a chance to use any of the public library’s computers around New Zealand that are free for public use you will notice that you can research anything on women’s rights and have access to any site but men’s right’s sites are being blocked as inappropriate. I wonder where else this is […]

Dalziel and Women’s Refuge

Mon 16th October 2006:

Scoop article quoting Dalziel I understand that you are also very close to concluding (or recently have concluded) a two-year contract with the Ministry of Social Development, which will give you certainty about ongoing core funding. The challenge though is to ensure that funding levels remain realistic over time. It wasn’t the justification I was […]
