I was forced to raise my
kids in Texas for 14 years

New York Post, by Pamela Gwyn Kripke

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/24/2017 6:13:17 AM

‘Look!” shouted my older daughter, Daphne, then 2 and a half , as she pointed to a cow. “Mooooooo.” “Moo is right,” I said, squeezed between car seats on the way to our new home. “And goats, too. So many goats.” “No, Mama. Sheep,” Daphne corrected me, her pigtails snapping side to side. She could differentiate farm animals better than I, a native New Yorker dropped from the clouds onto Texas soil. I had agreed to leave the Northeast and move to Dallas for my husband’s advertising career, an enterprise that was more profitable than my writing — alas, the greater good. The

This is the featured article in this morning´s New York Post. My question is why?

Just think her daughters could have turned out to be pompous, elitist snobs like her if she had been allowed to move them to NYC.

The Post appears to intentionally leave out certain facts to promote their slant in this article. Texas is NOT unusual in having laws that prevent spouses from leaving the immediate environs when there are children in divorce. But the Post only shared the laws in New York and in New Jersey. There are 50 states. A good journalist would have provided more perspective. But of course there are few good journalists these days. We are certainly used to that.

What an evil witch. Had she been allowed to she would have taken the kids to Boston and still have gotten $1600/month for free. The kid´s father would have rarely seen his children. Yet he would still be a slave to his ex-wife for 15 years.
The man was smart to divorce her in Texas. And the kids got to keep their father.

FTA: "It is that way, I suppose, when a legal document restrains your freedom because you married the wrong man when you didn’t know how to pick the right one, when you didn’t know that there were residential restrictions in Texas divorce decrees or that there were even decrees."

My guess is that, when she married him, no amount of talking would have changed her mind. She just had to have him. And now, she´s a victim. The greater good, indeed.

Her ugly attitude is very common among women today. Recognize it early and walk away. So very corrosive.

See ya´, biznotch.

I guess Ms. Kripke is trying to make, is to let evryone know what a Saint she is for giving up her life for her Children. How her life of misery was what she had to endure to be able to raise her children. I have news for her...there are millions of Women in this country who sacrifice for their children. Millions who live the way she did. Millions who married the wrong man. I guess I don´t know why the NY Post thought this article was worthy of publication. Maybe she should go to a Women´s Shelter sometime and see what it´s like to REALLY struggle to raise children! Whiner!

I have what is basically a ´gimme´ question on my Family Law final each semester, the shortened version of which goes something like ´In a divorce where there are children of the divorcing couple, what is the court´s primary concern in determining custodial rights, visitation rights and child support?´ The only answer (straight out of the Family Code) is that the Court´s primary concern is what is in the best interests of the children.´

Look, if you´re so East Coast centric and unremittingly liberal you can´t enjoy yourself in Dallas, the ninth most populous city in the US (and the DFW metroplex is the fourth-largest), there is something seriously wrong with you. Even worse, if you feel "trapped" in such an environment, then your prejudice is overwhelming.

What an odious human being.

She was not "forced" to stay in Texas. She could have moved back to her beloved cesspool New York any time she wished. She chose to remain in Texas so that she could attempt to poison her children´s minds against their father and their home.

I understand why she would feel aggrieved at being geographically restricted, even though the courts and the law considered that in the best interest of her children. I don´t understand why, instead of making the best of it, she chose to carefully nurse and cultivate a grudge for 14 years instead of adapting and enjoying life as millions of Texans do. She must have enjoyed her self-inflicted pain.

I also wonder if she ever learned the difference between a sheep and a goat and why the Post published this whiny piece of tripe.

It sounds to me like Texas did her a favor. She raised her daughters near their father, and the people of Texas made sure her daughters grew up to be mature, responsible, sane adults - unlike her mother, the whiny self-centered liberal nutcase.

If Texas couldn´t make her see the error of her ways, it just proves that liberalism is a mental disorder.

The kids at least had a chance in Texas. With a horse´s hind end arrogant NYC leftist puke for a mother, they started out with a genetic deficit. I hope that they learned some Texas values to offset the hateful NYC values that their obnoxious mother has.

I love my husbands family that are still in NYC. They may be liberals, I don´t know, we don´t discuss politics. But I do love them and they love me and that´s all that counts. I wasn´t born in Texas, but I claim Texas. Of all the places we lived, I loved Texas the most. My sister and brother still live there, but I live where my husband put down roots. My point is that it´s the person, not the place. I love New Yorkers as well as Texans.

What a pitiful, annoying twit. Glad that the kids appear to have turned out less self-absorbed than the mother, probably due to their TX upbringing. The point lost in this drivel is that no one, absolutely no one "forced" her to raise her kids in TX; by her own admission, she had lived in several places before that. She was the one to choose living in TX when she married the wrong man who took her there. The kids could have done far worse: Baltimore, Chicago, NYC school systems. Good riddance -- don´t let the longhorn kick your rear on your way out of the pen. As they would say in GA, if you don´t like the peaches, don´t shake the tree.

On his first day as Secretary of the Interior, last March, Ryan Zinke rode through downtown Washington, D.C., on a roan named Tonto. When the Secretary is working at the department’s main office, on C Street, a staff member climbs up to the roof of the building and hoists a special flag, which comes down when Zinke goes home for the day. To provide entertainment for his employees, the Secretary had an arcade game called Big Buck Hunter installed in the cafeteria. The game comes with plastic rifles, which players aim at animated deer.

On the Friday before Christmas, Fox News confirmed that its chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen, had left the network. He had worked there for 18 years and become something of a legend. The U.S. Justice Department under the Obama administration was so frustrated by his reporting on U.S. intelligence about North Korea that it conducted a leak investigation into his sources. The network cited no reason for Rosen´s exit and did not announce it on the air. According to Rosen´s former colleagues, however, he had an established pattern of flirting aggressively with many peers and had made sexual advances toward three

In the minds of today’s political activists, the objects of their fixations represent an existential threat. This is how opposition to an arcane, bureaucratic decision by the Federal Communications Commission transformed from a liberal cause into an obsession. This is also how the FCC’s chairman, Ajit Pai, became the subject of almost daily persecution. The source of great consternation on the left is the FCC’s decision to scrap an Obama-era rule implemented in 2015 deemed “net neutrality.” The end of net neutrality will allow internet service providers to, if they choose, privilege the content of providers that they own or support.

Republicans’ first victory of 2018 will likely be Judge Timothy J. Kelly’s denial of the plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction in English v. Trump following a hearing on the Friday before Christmas. The case began over Thanksgiving weekend when Richard Cordray, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s first director, promoted his chief of staff Leandra English to deputy director. The soon-to-be Ohio gubernatorial candidate then announced his resignation would take effect at the end of the day and declared English acting director until the Senate confirmed a new one. Two hours later, President Trump ignored Cordray’s self-serving misinterpretation of the Federal

My hometown, Portland, Oregon, voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but the Democratic Party lost almost everywhere else in the state, including in every county east of the Cascade Mountains. Except for in Vermont and Massachusetts, the same urban/rural divide in American politics exists around the country. A county-by-county map of the election looks like a Clinton archipelago in a vast Trump ocean. Lots of journalists have ventured into the rust belt to find out why so many working-class voters abandoned the Democrats for Donald Trump, but hardly anyone is asking why blue-collar voters in the rural West have

Save for the occasional stains left by waters that rose roughly three feet high, the outside of the brick ranch-style homes along Lucian Lane looked mostly untouched. The grim evidence of Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented flooding was instead marked by piles of debris lining the streets: crumbling Sheetrock, warped dressers, soggy mattresses, faded photos in shattered frames, an elliptical trainer that looked like a mangled grasshopper. Members of Team Rubicon, an emergency response outfit run by military veterans, had already scoured this neighborhood in Friendswood, a middle-class suburb southeast of Houston, gutting the houses and hauling the storm’s detritus to the

It had been two days since Hurricane Harvey made landfall, and the wind and rain continued to lash a wide swath of Texas, leveling houses, flooding cars, and leaving millions without power, clean water, or food. The news reports had gone from bad to catastrophic, with the National Weather Service declaring, “This event is unprecedented and all impacts are unknown.” And Beto O’Rourke was headed toward the storm. When Harvey hit, O’Rourke, a three-term congressman from El Paso, had been in the midst of his month-long “Town Haulin’ Across Texas” tour, introducing himself to voters during the House’s August recess

Congress’ successful passage of tax reform has given members of both the Republican party and the Trump administration a moment to take an end-of-year victory lap. Some very emotional speeches were made at both the White House and on the Hill, but there were still some members of the Trump cabinet who were not in attendance who celebrated on social media. One of them was the proud, outspoken Texan Rick Perry. Perry serves as the chairman of the Department of Energy and was the former governor of Texas.

At some time or another, every historian of Rome has been asked to say where we are, today, on Rome’s cycle of decline. Historians might squirm at such attempts to use the past but, even if history does not repeat itself, nor come packaged into moral lessons, it can deepen our sense of what it means to be human and how fragile our societies are. In the middle of the second century, the Romans controlled a huge, geographically diverse part of the globe, from northern Britain to the edges of the Sahara, from the Atlantic to Mesopotamia.

We should not be surprised by the news that “at least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment.” One can’t help but notice that 11 days have passed since Al Franken declared, “in the coming weeks I will be resigning as member of the United States Senate.” Not only has Franken not resigned yet, he has not publicly declared a date of resignation.

The Senate GOP is now united in support of the party’s tax plan. Senators Rubio (R-FL) and Scott (R-SC) announced their support after securing an increase in child tax credit refundability, which they have been pushing for throughout the bill’s finalization process. This was followed by a surprise announcement from Senator Corker – the sole Republican senator to vote against the previous bill — that he would support the final product, even though it still contains the deficit effects that he opposes. If no senators change their minds between now and the day of the vote, GOP leadership can pass

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—

Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month. (snip) “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
