The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
The Violence Against Women Act
Please note that although the feminist claim the VAWA is gender neutral, I urge you to read for yourself and decide for yourself if it is indeed gender neutral
Also please note who had a major part in writing this act:
Senator Joseph Biden, the Delaware Democrat who once chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee, first proposed the VAWA in 1990. The bill was a collaborative effort, with key roles played by Victoria Nourse, then Senate Judiciary Committee counsel, and Sally Goldfarb, then NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund (NOW LDEF) staff attorney. A broad range of feminist groups offered input and support, and NOW LDEF's Pat Reuss lent lobbying expertise.
Radical feminist wrote this act. Would not this be like asking the klu klux klan to write laws concerning racial relations?
I ask you to substitute the word "women" in any of this with Black, Asians, or any other group. Would it be fair? Would it be Just? Would it stand the test of the Equal protection clause of the
CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES
These are only a few things that this Unconstitutional act brings us:
The Office on Violence Against Women administers the Department of Justice's formula and discretionary grant programs authorized by the Violence Against Women Act of 1994. The program assists the nation's criminal justice system in responding to the needs and concerns of women who have been, or potentially could be, victimized by violence. Grant programs emphasize enhanced delivery of services to women victimized by violence; strengthen outreach efforts to minorities and disabled women; and provide Indian tribal governments with funds to develop and strengthen the tribal justice system's response to violent crimes committed against Native American women through a discretionary grant program. In addition, the office provides technical assistance to state and tribal government officials in planning innovative and effective criminal justice responses to violent crimes committed against women.

This list can be repeated for each state (see map above) Although we are told it is gender neutral, tell me one place where MEN can be helped? In fact, I personally got an e-mail from the Department of Justice to tell me there is not one dime to help men. There are some abuse shelters that do reach out to help men on their own but it is my understanding that they risk losing federal VAWA funding in order to do so to make sure not one man gets help. Yet, if a man is battered long enough, he WILL strike back and he will not stop with just one blow. THIS is when many of these women get seriously hurt but we can not tell these feminist that. We can not talk common sense to someone that is only looking for money and power. I do not know of even ONE Father's rights or men's rights groups that get one dime of tax payer money although we are accused of it.
As a result of this, this is what a Battered Woman can obtain. Click HERE
This is the future for a battered man. Click HERE
THIS web site is not free, but I do not get a dime of money from anyone other then myself and I am not complaining...I do it willingly to help those who have no other source for help. My point is that these women shelters get tens of thousands of federal dollars In fact, the tax payers support much of the feminist agenda. NOW gets a lot of tax dollars for a membership that is only a fraction of what they claim. I challenge NOW to open their records. PROVE how many members you really have and prove what you are doing with our tax money other then to demonize fathers and men in general!
IS YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND?

Who do you think made this statement?
It may surprise you when you find out.
"In my house, being raised with a sister and three brothers, there
was an absolute – it was a nuclear sanction, if under any
circumstances, for any reason, no matter how justified, even self-
defense – if you ever touched your sister, not figuratively,
literally. My sister, who is my best friend, my campaign manager, my
confidante, grew up with absolute impunity in our household. And I
have the bruises to prove it. I mean that sincerely. I am not
exaggerating when I say that."
"And I have the bruises to prove it."
The author? None other then Senator Joe Biden...the originator of
the Violence Against Women Act. Umm wouldn't ya think he would
know better then most that women can be violent too???
