I don't know much about Alec Baldwin, or his divorce problems, but his closing statements about "acting" are right on the mark; no one is really who they advertise themselves to be, and most of our institutions are little more than a nicely painted cardboard stage, with no real substance behind the curtains. As for the corruption in the legal system: we've known that forever, so no great revelation there. If at all possible, try to settle out of court.

I find it amusing how Mr. Baldwin didn't really answer any of the questions he was asked by Dr. Wade during the Q&A session. I'm also amazed how parents spend the vast majority of their "mulligan marriage" being absent to their spouse and children, spending as little time as possible with them. However, when the other spouse gets tired of practically being a single parent with a live-in roommate, all of a sudden everybody is out to get them. They come up with phrases like "Parental Alienation Syndrome" and can't get it thru their heads that it was their OWN DOING that got them in this situation to begin with. If you cheat, if you berate, if you abuse, if you abandon, you are the one doing the alienating yourself. And now it's someone else's fault that your kids don't want to spend time with you? C'mon! Love your spouse. Love your children. And don't just love them... let them know they are loved. Then you'll never have to worry about how the courts treat divorce and "PAS".

This court system,is geard for states and layers to make money,and use the system to continue to get money for as long as posable.And yes the mother uses the system and children to punish and persecute the father.and the courts are totally bias, in favor of the mother period.The only way to stop this courupt bias system is to stop funding it period.

Alec Baldwin's problem was his tenacious will to see things go his way. No wonder his marriage didn't work out. He can't see reality as it is but rather sees it parsed through words that he holds more dear. Why fight for "joint" custody? He could have given his ex "full" custody but still be part of his daughter's life instead of dragging a case, and his child, throught the pain of his battle. There is no court that is going to refuse his rights to visitation. He wanted it his way. His ego is big so it took years and hundreds of thousands of dollars to see that a woman is entitled to her children.

Hardly solely a liberal trait.

Liberals suffering the consequences of their own ideology makes for great entertainment. But still, they seldom learn.
