Ridiculous

"PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A Hispanic man who spoke to his 5-year-old daughter in Spanish has been ordered to use primarily English around the girl as a condition of his visitation rights .

Sarpy County Judge Ronald E. Reagan said the child does not understand Spanish, and her father should speak to her in the language she knows. "

quite ridiculous nonetheless, especially considering that the reason he hasn't seen her in 5 years and requires permission from the courts to see his own daughter now that he is a free man is because he's been locked up as a drug war prisoner).

oh i'm not saying that it isn't absurd. i just wanted to clarify a few things for those that may not read the story. the title of the post makes it seem a little worse than it already is.

take it or leave it for what it is... i still think it's ridiculous.

I can definately agree with you on that, but how is the title not factual?

Hell, I dunno if words can convey how really shitty and repressive that must be.

I was required to keep my boy in the same school district until graduation even though I had custody and his mother was screwing her way across the USA.I had to turn down jobs and many opportunities which would have greatly benefited my son .Instead my son's mother made sure we lived in a crappy little trailer house and that I was stuck working for the only place that even came close to paying a wage(a lousy 12$/hr and I have a masters in organic chem).Her revenge for me saying I would go homeless and dissappear before she got the alimony she was asking for BTW she thru me and the boy out when I confronted her about her infidelity and spending my paycheck on weekends with the same piece of shit who tried to molest my son on a visitation.So having a judge only make daddy talk english, while incredibly stupid and limiting to the boy,is absolutly NO suprise.
This is one area of discrimination, which while progress has been made,men are getting the shaft for wanting to be a father.Not to discount the deadbeat sperm donors out there but I have met some women who were literaly Cuckoo(The Cuckoo leaves it's eggs in a strangers nest for another bird to hatch and raise)My ex-wife is one.
Having the courts "solve" these problems does not seem to solve them.
WR:rasta:
PS Thank god almighty for my "real" wife who took us fucked up and bitter males and taught us of true love and devotion.Her love of ryan has healed SOOO much of the damage his mothers constant betrayal caused...for that alone I would devote myself to her,but she also loves me :blush:

whiterasta, I am glad you and your son have found some kind lady to help you heal.

I understand what you are saying. My future brother in law has 2 children by a woman I consider justifiably insane. He is a good father and she makes his life hell. It is a constant struggle for our family. Courts cant legislate love or being a decent human being and are often used for very sinister purposes. To give you some hope, in the BIL's situation, he has finally got to a judge that has basically told his ex that this is not the way you use the legal system and the tide is turning for him.

I wish you similar experiences.

it's not a question of factuality.

more the (un)intended result of your semantics.

My son is a grown man of 24 now and I could not be more proud of the man he has become,thanks in no small part to the consistant love of MA(his name for the "stepmother") We are half way through our own two unexpected miracles and big bro is a huge part of the youngun's lives.
MY GOD! I have been a dad for over half my life and still have a decade of it left,I hope I am good at it cause I sure will have spent alot of time practicing :lol:
