[Published June 29, 2014; Post in edit mode late July-Aug. 2014; expanded to almost double the size,nearly 24,000 words; with background info….In most posts, a lot of the length is simply quotes, my style is not just tell, but “show and tell.”]
This page will be updated as I can. I realized I am repeating by phone (and sometimes in post) information already blogged. Hopefully these are good browsing, a list of subject matter in addition to the links on the sidebar, pages, and sidebar widgets with some chronological narratives. This represents four-plus years of consistent research driven by an insatiable (so far) desire to know “How could these things be?” and “What are the alternatives?” Please feed the blogger; you will NOT find this information assembled elsewhere, and it should’ve been.
One of the questions I ask on this page (middle) is also, “What alternatives do you, plural, want? Is this really what you want done with your tax dollars?” With some visuals.

BELOW, in REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL TABLE FORM, picking up from the Dec. 24, 2013 one above:
A table of post titles going so far back to December 2012 (blog dates from 2009), in reverse chrono order, being assembled as of February 2014. I’ll add links as I can, however this has to be done from the Admin. site one post, one paste, one row/hyperlink at a time. Meanwhile, you can look up any post by its date through “Archives” til then. The titles are statements in themselves of a developing understanding of the field.
“Please Feed the Blogger” Notice:
Also, “please feed the blogger.” Any idea how much time it takes to research and put up a post?
Below is a section from the sidebar explaining why this blog, and that I’ve been exploring pretty much new and original material/territory* — including what has happened since those who first “dropped the ball” on reporting the HHS grants factor (around 1999-2002) as it affects the courts, and who, specifically dropped it. This blog is far from book format or indexed, but it’s a very good set of footprints, and with basic commonsense tools plus “show and tell” on lookups, involved. The information has been picked up and is being brought up, from what I can tell, in re: mid-term Congressional election platforms in two different states.
* (with exception of the CAFR material, which has good teachers already explaining it well, although I also blogged and continue to tie its huge significance into the family court matters. CAFRs speak to who is government. Courts are part of government).
I am also seeking to get some specific “consciousness-raising” funds eliminated in my own state of California, after having seen just what programs they go to, and having been an eyewitness long term of what “help” consists of (i.e., PR campaigns, technical assistance and training, website constructions, and tax writeoffs, etc.) This is definitely a real “public interest blog”
These tasks are guaranteed not to make one friends in high places, or among those in authority over the various programs I believe should be defunded. Much of my blog is politically incorrect, including among the arrogant (in my opinion) “save the world” Baby Boomers expert at promoting world utopia (along with “Pay no attention to our operating structures” which I do anyhow, and report on). Some of these, it seems, learned in the 1960s, somehow, that being able to change laws then, they are apparently beyond and above the law now. I disagree, and talk about the consequences of being distracted by “cause” rhetoric.
The same people and their multi-faceted, not-quite-filing nonprofit groups already have their eyes on desired system changes, and the parts slated for elimination are THE parts protecting due process, fiscal accountability to government, and despite all the talks of equality, simply fair play, financially. All people should learn how to understand the basic operating systems of (1) government and (2) self-appointed systems change agent and figure out how these are funded.
Pls. Feed the Blogger in re: About to go Public notice
FYI, I’m about to go public (not on this forum) with my case, naming names, putting it in chronological order, for protection of certain family members, because I am not in safe situation currently. I am in solidarity with anyone who has been put homeless, or nearly homeless year after year by this system WITHOUT having abused others or perpetrated crimes on others, and with people who have lost their children (but not their minds) through the courts, without due process and without legitimate cause. (Obviously, there are still legitimate reasons for being prevented from contact with one’s children. Unfortunately the most obvious ones in human terms don’t seem to hold much weight in “conciliation” courts with a mind of their own and purposes of their own, like ordering services and centralizing operations).
How NY’s OTDA [social services agency] runs even more fatherhood (and DV) funding through FFFS alternate circuitry
From a pre-Thanksgiving draft (and in not much beyond draft shape) I simply want to illustrate how “Follow the money” is almost impossible when it comes to the entrenched systems of Fatherhood, yes, also Domestic Violence prevention categories.
Some things you can’t see without even reading some detailed Administrative Memorandum offering more perks through, as in this example, “Flexible Funds for Family Services.” [FFFS]. I provided about half a post’s worth of intro, so if you want the original (and more picturesque part) please do scroll down at least to the first set of quotes, in tables with a rich brown background. This post relates to the “fatherhood.gov” a.k.a. “the National Responsible Fatherhood Resource Center and an Albany, New York street address on the contact page? and who that relates to. This field and the supposedly contrary field (domestic violence) since 1996 have been funded through the federal government. I did the best I could with formatting and hope the post further enlightens us ALL to (wake up and smell the coffee)….and make a New Year’s Resolution to start better comprehending “government” and how it’s funded. While I’m not the expert, I do have access to some tools which are NOT taught in most schools or reported in the local mainstream media. The tools aren’t to drown anyone with details, but the exhibit certain concepts — and from there, make a more informed decision of where you stand regarding (well, what’s to be done with your future TIME and LIFE).

For a generic overview of what, exactly, business is the Johnson & Johnson company in NOW, see Reuters.com Overview (viewed on Christmas Day, 12/25/2013). You may recognize the signature from many of the consumer products:

These images of: just a fragment of the Johnson & Johnson project lines; a book about their family, and of Casey Johnson, the young woman (to left) was found tragically dead in 2010, at only age 30 after several days, and in squalid conditions in a Los Angeles apartment,
have far more to do with the Family Courts having been transformed into Substance Abuse Treatment Centers for (ideally) the entire family than I realized.
See last post….ByPassing the Legal Process: How and for WHOM Maryland got its Family Divisions in 1998 to understand it wasn’t JUST a handful of advocates cutting a deal with a well-known Judge to administer into existence what they couldn’t, even in the mid-1990s, get legislated into reality, after many tries.
After reading about the background of Johnson & Johnson founders and their offspring, I am thinking seriously that all the pain and grief we are going through (including at holiday times) around the issue of “FAMILY” has more to do with the habits of this Johnson & Johnson family line — which obviously are in need of some of their own family and substance abuse therapy, family reunification, and quite a few other services — like hearing relationships, or staying married, and not abandoning their sons, daughters (biological or adopted). Something seems missing in the ethical category, including at times the work ethic — who needs to work with the size of those trust funds! Check out some of the footnotes on the other Johnson Brother (and descendants) J. Seward Johnson (sample from 1987, as a 12-year battle of children wife #3: Family Fortune, a Tangled Tale)
It’s a real wake-up call for a massive change of the status quo, and why attempting to reason with attorneys as a class (or, training judges) about the courts isn’t going to get far. They are listening as a class (cf. RWJF paying the ABA to promote UFCs) to their funders.
Bypassing the Legal Process in Baltimore: HOW and for WHOM Maryland got its “Family Divisions” in 1998.
This blog is published as-is, both formatting and editing. In my own defense (from its embarrassing look) — I have to type in half HTML, half “Visual” mode, with frequent “Preview” mode to check and correct… WordPress “Visual” mode is NOTHING like actual — as to paragraph breaks, spacing, and even font and line-height, unless I manually (copy & paste, or type in) controlling HTML style codes.
Meanwhile, I am engrossed in the subject matter, and this work is neither contracted nor hourly. It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m posting anyhow.
Major lesson? Want justice? It has to be economic justice, and through self-education (that means, put one’s time into something else), unless the country gets out of the business of war, which basically causes business contracting with the US Government to wage it, which then with this wealth (and while soldiers die on both side, and landscapes are blown up, new drugs are used for warfare and then to repair the injuries and trauma from war) foundations enable the wealth from war to be used for PR and — as it actually turned out, probably, in this case — a certain foundation wants the nation to function differently, which it has been. (Oh, the benefits of Billionaire BIG).
Also whatever illness one of the fortune-family’s kids have, that’s the disease that gets the research for the cure (how about healthier lifestyles and less poisoned food supplies, and fewer drugs for us all?)
Generation IV of the exact same heir’s name, ALL of them knowing they have enough wealth to throw it around and make the rules, is behaving badly, pays off the ABA to set up a center to create Unified Family Courts (including this one in Baltimore), the ABA keeps up the good work, and eventually a judge concedes. [Read the whole article for another take on how wealth is acquired; the word “strangulation” was used in this one, coercion, under duress signing over businesses one helped develop, etc.] Bullies into Healthcare, Health Research and Family Justice….
The wealth has also probably affected the family line, which contains a number of high-profile (that’s the level they exist at) celebrity disasters, reported in 2010 when one of the daughters died of drug overdose in squalid conditions. Family members cut themselves in or out of the business, or wealth, affecting future generations of their own, only larger-league.
The courts also order families into therapy they don’t need; sometimes involving drugs (i.e. anti-psychotics). The foundation just so happened to be a major pharmaceutical, one of the world’s largest. And from 1988ff a major contributor to Republican party, causes, and candidates, particularly future President Bush.
And we expect JUSTICE from this model?…Merry Christmas indeed, and for my NEXT Christmas, I’d like a website with an embedded style chart I don’t have to do manually, my children to understand some of these truths, AND I’d like to see them again too, would be nice…. might even re-instated the practice of observing or participating in holidays, MAYBE. If you’re not up for the narratives, just look at the links….
