“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” —Dr. Seuss I got an email from ThePetitionSite.com the other day. Someone wanted to know how to sign a petition I put up there. The procedure’s pretty straightforward. Signers can choose whether to have their names displayed and […]

I posted a short rhetorical analysis of MSNBC’s coverage of the first annual International Conference on Men’s Issues a while ago because its prejudices were offensively unapologetic. Yesterday I came across a blog post titled, “If You’re Not a Feminist, You’re Ignorant.” Albeit inadvertently, it exposes the origins of these prejudices, which are ones everybody […]

“A judge is not the court.” —People v. Zajic, 88 Ill.App.3d 477, 410 N.E.2d 626 (1980). “A judge should expect to be the subject of public scrutiny.” —The Arizona Code of Judicial Ethics (Rule 1.2, Comment 2) A judge in my home county is the subject of a website that features a photograph of what’s reportedly […]

I’ve posted before about how to file a complaint against a judge and noted that unless you can persuasively demonstrate that s/he was derelict in his or her ethical duties, or otherwise acted out of line, it’s unlikely the complaint will work an effect. Something I recently discovered about my own state’s procedure, however, is […]

Rereading MSNBC’s article on the first annual International Conference on Men’s Issues, I have to marvel that so firmly has feminism taken hold that even reporters (whose watchword is objectivity) may respond with Pavlovian menace to an act of civil disobedience—which challenging feminism is. Consider that feminism originates with the 19th-century suffrage movement, that is, with some […]

Apparently the first annual International Conference on Men’s Issues was held in Michigan recently. I read this fact on the MSNBC website in an article that disdained even to capitalize the title of the conference and which, for more reasons than just that one, reminded me of the days when I edited my high school […]

It’s not without regret for how they may affect victims of sexual violence that a number of journalistic reports that expose false rape allegations have been included in this blog’s marginal bibliography. Although the blog’s focus is restraining order abuse, the potency of restraining orders and the laxity applied to the allegations they’re based on […]
See this post, especially, which summarizes much of what these topical editorials concern and may be of value to anyone desperate to explain to a family member, friend, significant other, teacher, spiritual adviser, counselor, employer, attorney, or journalist how s/he’s been wrongly represented and injured. Few people who haven't been abused by them know restraining orders are abused; fewer still how they’re abused or why.
Those with restraining order cases pending are prompted to consult the blog’s Q & A page. Corrections to its author’s interpretations and grudging knowledge, incidentally, are always welcomed.
Since laws concerning restraining orders, their implementation and customs, and different means to combat them can vary from state to state, visitors are also urged to investigate and familiarize themselves with the rules that obtain in their home jurisdictions.
They’re further urged to secure the counsel of a qualified, reliable, and ethical attorney if at all within their means (some do exist).
The restraining order racket is a rigged game that tends to reward inveterate liars and their invertebrate minions.
The truth won’t set you free.
It shouldn't be this easy to make a judge your bully.
