It is what it is

I have walked every pothole-riddled step of this road and I can attest that this is true. It isn't JUST, but that's the way the system works and a smart woman knows how to take advantage of it. This article is full of horror stories.
Steve Barreras paid $20,000 to support his daughter, a girl he had never met. In fact, she didn�t even exist. His ex-wife Viola Trevino took another family's daughter to court and claimed the child as hers. New Mexico governor Bill Richardson has now ordered an investigation.
I've ranted before what a stacked deck this is.
The voice of justice and outrage asks, How could this happen in America?
A goat to scape. A stereotype. A whipping boy. I love the way America has outgrown that kind of behavior.
Of course, it�s divorce that triggers the monstrous child support machinery to lurch into motion. The rise of no-fault, unilateral divorce does not trouble the Sisterhood. In fact, they welcome it.
Divas, my ass.
