Some Anti-Russian Pro-Child Welfare Propaganda For You

Russia Screws Its Orphans to Hurt the U.S.


Last Friday Russia’s president Putin signed a controversial anti-U.S. adoption bill. The bill prohibits  American families from adopting Russian children and is largely seen as an attempt to respond to the United States’ unfriendly political move, known as Magnitsky Law, which is meant to stand up against the abuse of human rights in Russia. Meaning to hurt the US, the move harms the lives of many already unfortunate children from Russian orphanages who could have found homes and much needed care.

Katt Williams arrested for child endangerment, slapped with $4 million tax lien

Some people didn't make it out of 2012 without experiencing some type of personal catastrophic event (or, more accurately in this case, cascading series of events). Such is the case with comedian Katt Williams, who was arrested (again) on Friday, charged with suspicion of child endangerment. As TMZ reported, the arrest occurred just hours after media outlets reported that the "Kattpacalypse" star had been notified that the IRS had issued tax liens against the comic for over $4 million.

My adoption story as an Indian child starts at the old Grace Hospital in Winnipeg in 1968. That's the year I was legally adopted by a white, middle-class family. Like 20,000 other aboriginal children taken from their families in the 1960s, '70s and early '80s, I have been on a life-long journey to reconnect with my family and culture and to figure out how to fit into both of these worlds.

How New York City is Making Foster Care Safer

How New York City is Making Foster Care Safer


According to New York State’s Office of Children and Family Services, over 25,000 children are currently living in foster care. While this number may seem staggering, it is through the hard work of thousands of people who are dedicated to helping children that so many of them in the foster care system are provided with safe and supportive homes. To continue this cycle of support, New York has dedicated a large portion of their community services to help make foster care even safer for the children who depend upon the adults in every part of the foster care system.

Note: Logically speaking, if New York's foster care system needs to be made safer, one could reasonably conclude that New York's foster care system was not entirely safe to begin with.

The US State Departments Statement on Russia's Yakovlev Act

The US State Departments Statement on Russia's Yakovlev Act  


We deeply regret Russia’s passage of a law ending inter-country adoptions between the United States and Russia and restricting Russian civil society organizations that work with American partners. American families have adopted over 60,000 Russian children over the past 20 years, and the vast majority of these children are now thriving thanks to their parents’ loving support. The Russian government’s politically motivated decision will reduce adoption possibilities for children who are now under institutional care. We regret that the Russian government has taken this step rather than seek to implement the bilateral adoption agreement that entered into force in November. We are further concerned about statements that adoptions already underway may be stopped and hope that the Russian government would allow those children who have already met and bonded with their future parents to finish the necessary legal procedures so that they can join their families.

Obesity declining in young, poorer kids

After decades of increases, childhood obesity drops in several cities


When junk food, fast food, sugary drinks and breakfast cereals that are 56 percent sugar by weight meet video games, televisions in bedrooms, and a walking-averse culture, the outcome shouldn’t be that surprising. About 17 percent of children between the ages of 2 and 19 in the United States are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s more than 12 million children, and triple the rate from one generation ago.

In this way of thinking you simply need to want something so badly that you can employ any means available to obtain/possess it.

Russian Children Sexually Abused, Suffocated by US Adoptive Parents – Russian Diplomat

Russian Children Sexually Abused, Suffocated by US Adoptive Parents – Russian Diplomat


Florida justice denied Russian diplomats a meeting with adopted Russian boy, Maxim Babaev, 6, who was abused by his American adoptive parents, despite US-Russian new agreement on adoption. Sergey Chumarev, Senior Legal Councillor of the Russian Embassy in the U.S., who tried to get consular access to Maxim, a bearer of Russian passport, told the Voice of Russia about the new details of this case. In the most shocking part, Mr. Chumarev refers to sheriff's report about sexual abuse of the child that was disregarded by a local judge, as well as to police report saying the adoptive father hit his head against the wall and his U.S. mother tried to suffocate him. The Russian diplomat also cites other examples when state or county authorities in various locations across the United States refused to fulfill US-Russian adoption agreement and prevent Russia to monitor cases of abuse of Russian kids in America. This story emerges on the backdrop of heated debate around U.S. adoption ban that was voted by the Russian Duma past Friday.

It's not uncommon that non-custodial parents fail to pay money in support owed to their children.

Money is automatically taken out of a parents paycheck and use to pay the court-ordered child support amount.

Why Has Moscow Passed a Bill to Ban U.S. Adoption of Russian Orphans?



Why Has Moscow Passed a Bill to Ban U.S. Adoption of Russian Orphans?


Passing a new bill in Russia has never presented much of a problem for President Vladimir Putin. With perpetual control of both houses of parliament and a couple of loyalist “opposition” parties to boot, legislation backed by Putin generally amounts to a Kremlin fiat. The hard part this week was in explaining his newest initiative to the public. Intended as a political strike against Washington, the bill does some shocking collateral damage. In effect, it will doom the chances of thousands of Russian orphans, many of them handicapped and emotionally scarred, from being adopted by families in the U.S. How do you justify that?

Should Parents Have Access to Information in Child Protective Services Records?


Should Parents Have Access to Information in Child Protective Services Records?

When a county Department of Social Services receives a report that a child may have been abused or neglected, may be dependent, or may have died as a result of maltreatment, the director has a duty to conduct either an investigative assessment or a family assessment. (Investigative assessments are required for reports of abuse or serious neglect. All other reports result in family assessments, which are less formal.) In the course of the assessment, the director or the director’s designee will gather a lot of information about the situation. The law is pretty clear that the child has a right to review much of the information gathered by the Department in the course of the assessment. The more difficult legal question is whether the child’s parent has a right to review the information as well. While I do not have a crystal clear answer to this question, I thought it would still be useful to ask the question and walk through some of the applicable statutes and regulations.

While guns have been a common denominator in mass slayings at schools by teens, there’s another familiar element that seems increasingly to be minimized.

Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, such health insurance concerns may become a thing of the past. Under the new law, children may be able to remain on their parents' health insurance policies until they reach the age of 26, regardless of whether they are eligible to be covered by another health insurance plan. In addition, a child's eligibility for coverage under a parent's policy will likely be unaffected -- and continue -- despite such factors as whether he or she still lives at home, is married or single, or is still in school.

LK Announcement

This is just a heads up.

Due to my being fed up with my current internet service provider, Time Warner Cable, which has not only added new fees over the last couple months and implemented new policy changes without notifying customers ahead of time this month, as well as the sheer arrogance of the bitch at the local office who mistakenly applied one of my recent payments to another account causing me a major headache that I had to deal with, my beautiful wife and I have decided to switch ISP's.  I have signed up for a reliable DSL service, which will give me the same internet speed that I have now at just above 1/3rd of the monthly price which is locked in for 4 years.  This new service will be active as of December 20th.

I am well aware that Cable is usually better than DSL, but for a savings of like almost $50 bucks a month, I'll deal with it.  And since 3 of my friends who I talked to have had no problem with this service, I'm sure everything will be okay.  However, I am considering taking a few days off to avoid any future payments to Time Warner Cable, who sucks to deal with.  I will take this time to spend with my family, go see the Hobbit, avoid getting even fatter than I already am since I am on like day 4 of quitting a 2+ pack a day chain smoking habit, etc.  So IF I disappear for a couple days, please do not worry.  I will be back, hopefully refreshed and healthier.

Peace, Love and Flowers

A CLINICAL ANALYSIS OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT PHOBIA


A CLINICAL ANALYSIS OF ANTI-GOVERNMENT PHOBIA


This study conclusively demonstrates that unfounded fear of government is a recognizable mental illness, closely related to paranoid schizophrenia. Anti-Government Phobia (AGP) differs from most mental illnesses, however, in that it is highly infectious and has an acute onset. Symptoms include extreme suspiciousness, conspiracy-mongering, delusional thought patterns, staunch "us against them" mentality, withdrawal from reality, and often religious fanaticism. Having the patient committed to a qualified mental health institution is the best option for family and loved ones. For this reason, all psychiatrists and family physicians should be provided with educational materials which will help them recognize the various symptoms and warning signs accompanying onset. Since comparatively little is known about Anti-Government Phobia at the present time, a government-funded health commission should be set up to oversee, and help focus, future research.


Note: CPS Victims know that they have every reason to fear the government.  Perhaps somebody should report the author of this study to the Child Abuse Hotline.  

That will make the SOB freak out every time the door bell rings, eh?
