The problem is, Spaid infers that the child support is all about the mother. It's not - it's about the child. Where are all these case where mothers are getting independently wealthy because of the chid support they receive? Where are all these mothers are living the wealthy life while their children are in rags? They are overwhelming overshadowed by the stories of mothers struggling to cover basic needs because the support they receive is far too little, if they receive it at all. They are overshadowed by stories of men who, like Spaid, apparently, under-report their income or claim no income at all in order to get out from under their obligations to feed, clothe, and educate children they are responsible for.

Where is his anger directed? At his wife, and at this child. Where should his anger be directed? At the man who, most likely, knowingly slept with and fathered a child by another man's wife. And who should have been taking responsiblity for his actions.

That's the person Spaid should be going after - and he should be getting every penny of the child support he paid back from the man whose obligation is was to be paying it. So why isn't Spaid angry at him?
