Man sits in jail while
unable to pay alimony
that exceeds his income

Hunterdon County Democrat, by Lillian Shupe

Flemington, N.J — For nearly seven weeks, John Waldorf has been in the county jail on a “non-support” charge for allegedly failing to pay alimony. He claims he is a victim of New Jersey’s "antiquated" alimony system and many people agree with him. In late October a small protest was held outside the courthouse.(Snip) Waldorf, who divorced his wife of 11 years in 2011, was ordered to pay $2,000 a week in alimony to his ex. That amounts to $104,000 a year. In addition he was ordered to pay $3,300 in child support. The problem is that Waldorf has only been

Then again, he´s a man. Can´t they burn him at the stake or throw him in a bear pit?

if the facts in the case are correct and as the story is told in this article, how does the court expect this man to either address or remedy the situation from jail? On top of everything else, he is now unemployed because of the jailing. This is helpful how??

His alimony exceeds his income, he now has no income, his x-wife is apparently receiving some kind of assistance and the city/county/state/whoever is supporting him with 3 hots and a cot. Sounds to me like the judge overreacted or over punished (or both) and has now ensured that everyone in the family is being supported by taxpayers.

good move...

There was a case several years ago where an Army soldier was held captive by the enemy for a long time. When he was finally released and he returned to US soil, he was promptly arrested for failure to make child support payments during that time. State of California I think. So there ya go - rules are rules.

This judge, Mawla, should be removed from the bench, disbarred and disgraced. He is an absolute abomination to the justice system and his obvious prejudice should prevent him from even hearing divorce cases. This is absolutely insane.

Obama could make payments of $104k for alimony and $40k for child support with a 90k take home.

Sheesh.

From nj.com - "Family Court Judge Hany Mawla first made headlines in 2010 when then-Gov. Jon S. Corzine made him the first Muslim-American appointed to state Superior Court."

I believe the "judge" is waging jihad against decent Americans or he´s so incredibly stupid he can´t do basic math or maybe a mix of both.

Just asking. Is this a white gentleman? I just don´t wish to jump to conclusions. But if he is I would hazard a guess that 40 is the new 20 and whites are the new blacks. And nobody can add, subtract or multiply.

As someone who was financially devastated by his divorce I really feel for this guy. My ex dragged me to court when I missed ONE payment and attached my wages to the point where I could not pay rent on my fleabag apartment for months. Even though my payments are now over I ended up so far in the hole that I am still looking at possible eviction and homelessness.

My ex? living comfortably in another state with her new husband who makes twice my income!

Why get married? Given the exalted status of "single moms" brought to us by the FemiNazis, and the confiscatory community property, alimony and child support rates any man who marries needs his head examined.

Sure she seems sweet and responsible and promises she´ll never drag you through the courts, but when she sees the rainbow over the horizon kiss goodbye to your income and assets, even if you´ve got a PreNup.

I´m sure there are women who don´t fit this profile, and congrats to the men who have found one, but they are getting few and far between.

I have two college educated sons with decent, in one case, spectacular jobs.

And their women friends wonder why they won´t commit to a long term relationship.

They insist on no cohabitation, either. The ladies think they´re old fashioned.

Naw; they´re aware and self-protective.

My state, Florida, suspends driver´s licenses for men unable to pay on time or the amount, no matter what the reason. When the man can´t go to work, due to lack of transportation, he can´t pay either.

Now that women are equal and everything, the divorce and alimony laws need updating.

I don´t know about NJ, but #3, in California, the soldier should have appealed the decision. I had a friend who was incarcerated years ago and when he got out was told he owed "child support" (which is worse than alimony). He appealed it and got a deal. Unfortunately, because the judge didn´t specify there would be no interest, they came after my friend decades later for interest on the original $2000 settlement. So far, he has paid them over $8K since but because he has had slow business and can´t find a job, he hasn´t been able to pay it all off and it keeps doubling interest on the interest on the interest. Oh well... Our government is way out of control. We need to clean it up from top to bottom. Will we ever?

Binding pre-nuptial agreements. Use protection. Pre-marital agreements prior to children. So much men and women can do before they marry to minimize the post break up pain. But lessons will need to be learned the hard way.

Well, this certainly explains the poll last week, that showed contrary to the past, more women than men want to get married.

And women are confused? If we, as women, are going to demand equality, that means supporting ourselves when a marriage doesn´t work, or living within our means, the same way we would have to if married.

The revenge mentality that has taken over our culture is a sure sign that as a country, we have a fatal disease.

State schools isolate non-Muslims
Telegraph [UK], by Andrew Gilligan    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 4/18/2014 11:46:16 PM     Post Reply
Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

Roughly 25 Muslim drivers dispatched to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are refusing to drive cabs adorned with advertising for the region’s upcoming Gay Games, citing religious reasons. Two of the three companies operating at Ohio´s largest airport were informed by the drivers — one-third of the airport’s total fleet — last week that they will no longer participate in the airport’s dedicated taxicab program. The companies, Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab, were told by the drivers that their decision was based on religious reasons, airport spokeswoman Jacqueline Mayo told FoxNews.com.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
