    • On September 29, 2010, by LeonardH - American Family Rights Association has LONG OPPOSED CAPTA. Passed originally in 1974, CAPTA is what started this insane fascist nightmare of government intervention in families. Whether we want S. 3817 passed or not is really the choice between a minute repair to an utterly horrendous law- or our preference to get rid of it entirely. -OF NOTE- CAPTA expired October 1, 2008 and the criminally fraudulent CPS has been operating with NO AUTHORIZATION since. But government is so far out of control, nobody noticed. "Don't Amend it- Just END IT" But if that isn't going to be a choice, then yes, let's at the very least kick funds towards HELPING FAMILIES instead of kidnapping the kids, doping them out of their heads in state custody, and putting them in the Kiddie Pound for sale.

    • On December 01, 2010, by tigntink - Keeping families together bullshit kept me with an abusive father and mother for a full 18 years of my life. Some people shouldn't ever be parents and the children should be removed.
