Alert! Divorce hurts men worse then women!

This may come as startling news to a public that has been led to believe that women are the ones who suffer financially postdivorce, not men. But the data show otherwise, according to an exhaustive study of the subject by Sanford L. Braver, a professor of psychology at Arizona State University and author of Divorced Dads: Shattering the Myths. “The man is in a lot poorer condition than the popular media portray,” he says. “This idea of the swinging, happy-go-lucky, no-worries single guy in a bar…that’s just not it at all.” The misconception was fueled by Harvard professor Lenore Weitzman’s widely cited book, The Divorce Revolution: The Unexpected Social and Economic Consequences for Women and Children in America.

Weitzman’s 1985 tome claimed that postdivorce women and children suffer on average a 73 percent drop in their standard of living, while the divorced men’s standard of living increased by 42 percent. Years later, Weitzman acknowledged a math error; the actual difference was 27 percent and 10 percent, respectively. But Braver says even that figure is based on severely flawed calculations. Weitzman and other social scientists ignored men’s expenses—the tab for replacing everything from the bed to the TV to the house—as well as the routine costs of helping to raise the children, beyond child support. Even the tax code favors women: Not only is child support not tax deductible for fathers, but a custodial mother can take a $1,000 per child tax credit; the father cannot, even if he’s paying. As “head of the household,” the mother gets a lower tax rate and can claim the children as exemptions. If the ex-wife remarries, she is still entitled to child support, even if she marries a billionaire. Indeed, every year men are actually thrown in jail for failing to meet their child-support obligations. In the state of Michigan alone, nearly 3,000 men were locked up for that offense in 2005.

Northwest Wisconsin's Online Newspaper!

When the first 16-page issue of the Inter-County Leader rolled off the presses in the early morning hours of November 2, 1933, the headlines across the front page read "Farmers' Strike Called Off Temporarily." Those words were very significant of the times in which the paper came into being, and perhaps of the background for organizational efforts to produce this new newspaper.

The fact that farmers were organizing a nationwide strike to hold all farm produce off the market was some indication of troublesome times which were common throughout the nation during the Great Depression.

By November 1933 - with help from $5 from each interested farmer - the Leader was born.

Some of the original organizers were members of the Polk County Farmers Holiday Association, the principal promoter for the farm strike called in the fall of 1933. Included were D.D. Kennedy, president of the Polk County Holiday Association; George An Nelson of Milltown; Herb Mittelsdorf of Farmington; J.W. Hanson of Luck; J.W. Bosley of Beaver; F.W. Wiese of Eureka; Ed McKenzie of Balsam Lake; and Marius Dueholm of Bone Lake.

Many Farmers Union members were also involved in both the Farm Holiday movement and the development of the Leader.

The Inter-County Leader is a weekly newspaper published each Wednesday at Frederic, Wis. It is a cooperative-owned newspaper operated by the Inter-County Cooperative Publishing Association

I don't want America to end up like Nazi Germany!

A report in the New York Times reveals that the FCC is moving forward with a secret timeline to vote on sweeping changes to media ownership rules. This is just the most recent in a long series of FCC moves to avoid public scrutiny.

I strongly urge you to call for Congressional oversight hearings on media ownership. Media is a life-and-death issue for me and my community, and the FCC has not done enough to study the impact that more consolidation would have on diversity, localism, and competition. The FCC is poised to make the same mistake it made in 2003, when it ignored unprecedented public outcry, and had to be reined in by the courts.

Help hold the FCC accountable. Please call immediately for oversight hearings on media ownership.
