Divorce, American Style: it’s the new episode of the Glenn and Helen Show including all you want to know about that great American pastime from family/divorce lawyer Lauren Strange-Boston – ready for you to listen or download.
Statistics indicate that the a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divorce”divorce rate is high/a–some say up to fifty percent of marriages in the US end in divorce while others say it is lower, but still high. Are you about to become one of these statistics or know someone who is? Then you have to listen to our dicussion with divorce attorney, Lauren Strange-Boston, who joins us in our studio today to discuss how men and women differ when it comes to negotiating the terms of divorce. We will focus first on what to look for in a spouse in order to avoid divorce, how to find a good divorce attorney if the worst happens and you need one, how to manage your feelings in the most effective way (hint: anger and/or manipulation may not win your case), and what to do if your soon-to-be ex decides to bring charges against you for sexual abuse or other serious allegations.br /br /You can listen to the podcast by a href=”http://podcasts.instapundit.com/StrangeBoston.mp3″clicking here/a (no iPod necessary) or you can a href=”http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=116559643s=143441″subscribe via iTunes here./a Here is a link to our podcast archive if you want to listen to previous podcasts a href=”http://instapundit.com/archives/cat_podcasts.php”here/a.

Apparently, yesterday was declared a href=”http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=2051172CMP=OTC-RSSFeeds0312″Women’s Confidence Day /aby Queen Latifah and other women who feel the need to continue the tired program of promoting women’s self-esteem (Thanks Allah Pundit). Haven’t we drilled into most women’s heads enough self-esteem already? Has anyone ever asked whether or not this “self-esteem” is helpful to women and society or not? Pumping women up with fake programs and phony self-esteem seems to do more harm than good–hence the need for books like a href=”http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=as2path=ASIN/1594200750tag=wwwviolentkicomcamp=1789creative=9325″See Jane Hit : Why Girls Are Growing More Violent and What We Can Do About It./aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=1594200750″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / It seems that we would spend our time more wisely by teaching women how to actually master real skills such as mathematics, science and engineering then promoting programs that provide a fake, but worthless sense of self. “Radiating confidence” can never substitute for real knowledge and plain hard work.
Dave at the Crisper has a href=”http://thecrisper.com/index.php/2006/06/07/a-fat-tax/”an interesting post /aon the possibility of taxing those with a high BMI (Body Mass Index). Should we also consider a tax on crappy genetics or how about just plain bad luck? Because hey, my a href=”http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4205527.stm”BMI /ais 20 and I’m not doing so good in the health department. Could it just be that some people find fat people offensive? I wonder how far the food Nazis are willing to go so that they do not have to bear the unsightliness of the overweight?

Is marriage in the US a href=”http://www.upi.com/NewsTrack/view.php?StoryID=20060530-051130-3149r”on the rocks/a like it is in Britain? Apparently, the changing views on marriage are not going to stop the British legal system from stepping in to a href=”http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,,1786321,00.html?gusrc=rss”further control interpersonal behavior/a as those who are living together will now be subject to similar “rights” of those who are married–and finally, now gay couples will be included in the screw job–I mean rights–that we heterosexuals have suffered with–I mean “benefited” from, for years. (Hat Tip: a href=”http://hotair.com/archives/the-blog/2006/05/31/sex-and-marriage-man-proves-fidelity-by-cutting-off-his-schwanz/”Hot Air/a) br /br /BTW, I am not talking about the interpersonal relationship of marriage as a “screw job”–a wonderful relationship is the ultimate reason for marriage, I merely mean that unfair laws regarding marriage can sometimes be a “screw-job.”
