[Note: This is a start and escalation of states assaulting the poorest of the poor, which will ultimately create many non-custodial parents to be jailed.........thus increasing incarceration grants for states along with revenue from child support collections for states to generate income because of losses that they are having due to the down-turned economy. States are beginning to make adjustments in their operations folks during this slow economy to make up for losses and they are implementing a full force attack towards and on us citizens. This is the beginning of the end I fear and things will get very bad and worse than they have been concerning the WAR ON FAMILYS........they have to maintain their profiteering and federal incentive monies somehow!, this is just one way.

There is only one way for these crooks to maintain revenue and that is to further drain the people of the United States........us folks!]
