Here’s a Feedback Form (and a LONG rant about DV agencies)

with 2 comments

A Feedback Form. Make thoughts known, seek support/comprehension of this system from another point of view.  Or, debate me on the one I hold.  Regarding any post, or subject herein and if it’s re: a post, please include the link and/or post title.  Thanks!

For now, this is a “sticky” post, i.e., stays near the top of the blog. Form is repeated at the bottom of the post.

(Note: The “Check if You Are Willing To” item has a drop-down menu. It’s extending past the right margin, even past the blogroll, but is otherwise functional — just click on the drop-down arrow at the far, far right of that blank field. If I find out how to fix it, I will.)

Top Ten Plus One of Almost 600 published (Minus Most of the Table Talk)

leave a comment »

[I’m “unsticking” ten posts formerly held near the top of blog, a.k.a., redecorating..for functionality  ..and out of boredom looking at the same thing every day..This post is “sticky” and stays on top.  New posts are beneath the ones marked “This post is sticky.” Also note, I often revise or expand (alas) after (at times long after) publishing. WYSIWYG..]

Below, I chose 10 formerly “sticky” posts to Unstick them, and put actual new posts closer to the top of the blog.  Plus One.  A similar but not identical post (just published) had abstracts.  Do read — but this is just the list.  And almost nothing BUT the list!  To my patient readers….    First, the “Plus One.”  Regarding biotech, pharmaceutical, and gene-tinkering disruptive technology corporations — don’t mistakenly think they have nothing to do with the family courts, or kids in foster care and other vulnerable populations.  SOMEbody has to fund studies, and someone has to become the subject matter of them; we are all interrelated — in our various assigned sectors.

The Plus-One:

Genzyme, BioEnvision, ImPath, Sanofi – New Strains of Fish in the Ocean of Commerce [2013, 07/17]

Yes, it’s disheartening reporting (from the front lines as well) what makes people broke and drives them homeless or close to it (particularly, federal policy and welfare reform with its diversions into Designer Family Curricula)….This is at least an inspiring change of pace researching the corporations that backed the foundations that set policy that came up with the idea of domesticating  and exercising breeding and population control on the rest of us.  Disguised under utopian ideas, like public welfare and benefit, ending poverty, etc.  Disruptive technologies and serial entrepreneurs, mergers and acquisitions, and why Rx needs Gov’t needs people (subject matter) to prosper..  Maybe…..

1.  Look and See, Show and Tell! (Selected Media/Library Exhibits to this blog) [2013, 11/11]

2. My Media/Library Uploads Retrospective– but First, The Context!  [2013, 11/11]

3. Gravatar, Cont’d…. (2013 Oct)  – [2013, 10/27]

4. NAMES: “Center, Council, Judicial, Legislative, Institute…” But WHO they are, and how legit, is in the LABEL – [2013, 08/30]

5. A Testimony for these Times … (hypothetically before an Appropriations Hearing) – [2013, 07/04]

The House Ways and Means Committee should quit funding Welfare Diversions (or child support demonstration programs) to promote “marriage and fatherhood” as an antidote to poverty, when we by now know that’s not its real purpose — at all.     (That’s a link to the CRS [Congressional Research Service) Feb. 2012 on “Fatherhood Initiatives:  Connecting Fathers to their Children.”  (RL31025)

6. Join or Start a Conversation on Family Court Matters. Jump in Somewhere! [2013, 05/16 [had been “pending” recently re-published]

7. A Stunning Validation by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson: The Assault on Truth, The Origins of Psychoanalysis [2013, 03/05]  [this one remains a “sticky” post]

This is a must-read, in my opinion.  Whatever kind of person this author was, or wasn’t, I’m with him on this one.

In writing this post, I looked up some personnel. One of them (below), a 2012 AFCC Stanley Cohen awardee, had participated in “The Kinsey Institute.” I looked up one of the other investigators and in a book list ran across: Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson: “Against Therapy: Emotional Tyranny and the Myth of Psychological Healing.” (2012):   From this author’s “JeffreyMasson.com” site, this is how it goes:

In this ground-breaking and highly controversial book, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson attacks the very foundations of modern psychotherapy from Freud to Jung, from Fritz Perls to Carl Rodgers. With passion and clarity, Against Therapy addresses the profession’s core weaknesses, contending that, since therapy’s aim is to change people, and this is achieved according to therapist’s own notions and prejudices, the psychological process is necessarily corrupt. With a foreword by the eminent British psychologist Dorothy Rowe, this cogent and convincing book has shattering implications.

8. Exposing and Prosecuting Judicial Corruption through Common Law Discovery (1997 Interview) [2013, 01/24] [remains a “sticky” post]

File this Article under “What a Difference One Person can Make, if that person:  Has Guts, Will Obtain Evidence, Look at Evidence, Come to Logical Conclusion regarding Evidence Obtained AND Publicize It! Can you read 7 pages “for the cause”? And think about it? If given a brief pop-quiz of about 10th grade level on what it’s talking about, how much of the vocabulary or ideas could you remember?
