After listening to Randi Rhodes today, I turned on CNN to see
if they were interviewing deadbeat dad, Randall "Operation Rescue Everyone But My Kids" Terry. I wanted to see what the swindling psycho looked like. I saw Andersen Cooper sitting at his desk announcing a two hour emoting gag-fest tonight. Then he said something like here is crowd in front of the hospital. (It looked like maybe 50 or so.) At times, he continued, there have been hundreds here.

Hundreds, HUNDREDS. There were thousands that marched on March 19th. NATION-WIDE. TO STOP THE KILLING. And TeeVee couldn't report it? But they mobilize for hundreds.

They have turned everything, including this list, into the Shiavo affair.

I am very sorry for the family, but it is time to quit playing TeeVee's game.

1. I love Randi Rhodes! She gets to the point of the matter.
Randall Terry is a deadbeat dad?

3. Holy crap, yes.
I had no idea that he was so evil.

Two straight hours of Terry stuff. Despicable SoB.

7. Yes, he is. The refusal by Republicans to provide a clause in the
Bankruptcy Bill that would make it so fines for interfering with abortion clinics could not be discharged via Bankruptcy was done with Randall Terry in mind. After his divorce and loss of a civil suit brought by NOW, he declared bankruptcy to avoid paying NOW and child support. (I may have some of that out of order chronologically, but he did file bankruptcy to avoid paying NOW).

reduced or eliminated thru bankruptcy

What I found out about bankruptcy and child support

Advantages of Family Claimants in Bankruptcy

When bankruptcy and divorce collide (as they often do), Congress has given family claimants several advantages over other creditors. Here's a quick rundown.

* Exception from the automatic stay for efforts to establish orders for paternity, child support, or alimony. 11 U.S.C. 362(b)(2)(A).
* Exception from the automatic stay for collection of child support or alimony. 11 U.S.C. 362(b)(2)(B).
* Priority for unsecured claims of the debtor's spouse, former spouse, or child for alimony or support. 11 U.S.C. 503(b)(7).
* Priority of a judicial lien for support over the exemptions otherwise available to a debtor in bankruptcy. 11 U.S.C. 522(f)(1)(A).
* Nondischargeability of obligations for support owed to children, spouses, and former spouses. 11 U.S.C. 523(a)(5).
* Possible nondischargeability of obligations for property settlement claims owed to children, spouses, and former spouses. 11 U.S.C. 523(a)(15).

19. It shouldn't...
They want creditors to be paid under the new law. Child Support is an obligation.

Under old law: Those filing could erase consumer debt to others but child support could not eliminated.

Under new law: It is more difficult to erase consumer debts
I could find nothing regarding child support under impending new law.

4. I totally agree with you. I made this point in a post a few days ago.
Damn media covers one PVS woman like she's the next coming of Christ, and totally ignores the thousands and thousands who protested the Iraq war last weekend. I've said it before and I'll say it again, anyone who believes the media isn't bought and paid for by the Repukes is a fool.

13. Yeah, once you get past that voice, she's amazing...so well-researched.
I started out feeling neutral about her show. Now I'm a "convert." Sure missed it when she was out sick.

I just wish they'd move her to the Noon-3 timeslot on AAR's channel in Los Angeles. Instead they give us Ed Shultz...

9. ABC Nightly News...........
Edited on Fri Mar-25-05 10:07 PM by kevinmc
I just saw ABC Nightly News Blatantly Lie tonight. First they said that tape that was secretly taken of Hot Tub Tom last Friday was at a Press Conference, which is a Lie, no press were allowed there. Second ABC chopped the tape to make it sound like it was done this week and was a response from Delay on what has happened this week in court. Sean Hannity would have been proud.

17. the tape came from the Center
for separation of church and state, not sure of that name. It was played over and over at Morning Sedition . You might check there for the tapes origin. Morning Sedition is part of Air America.
