    If a male is to be held fiscally responsible for support for the next eighteen years, I believe he should have an equal say.

    While I'm on my soapbox, with as effective as DNA is today, the mother must put the name of the father, who is then financially responsible. If "unknown" or she refuses, she is then ineligible for additional benefits. If "unknown" DNA test can be done on the potential father and they then become financially responsible for the next 18 years.

    Or, the New York Times, The Nation, MediaMatters, NPR, PBS, and many, many others.

    For example. The New York Times printed a story with Nikki Haley in the headline as ordering $52,000 in drapes. Even in the story, Nikki Haley had nothing to do with it and should never have even been mentioned. The drapes were ordered by...ta da...the Obama administration.

    New York Times admits creating 'unfair impression' about Nikki Haley's $53G curtains that were OK'd by Obama administration

    By Brian Flood | Fox News

    The New York Times has added an editor’s note and changed the headline on a story that was widely criticized for reporting U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley has extravagant curtains in her official residence costing nearly $53,000, because the purchase was actually approved in 2016, under the Obama administration.

    “An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question. While Nikki R. Haley is the current ambassador to the United Nations, the decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration, according to current and former officials,” the editor’s note states.

    "The decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration."

    - New York Times
    “The article should not have focused on Ms. Haley, nor should a picture of her have been used. The article and headline have now been edited to reflect those concerns, and the picture has been removed.”

    Whats the deal:


    Well In addition to the curtains, the tweet Lieu quoted also claimed that Haley’s NYC residence costs the State Department $58,000 monthly. But what it leaves out is the fact that Haley’s residence is far less costly — by the State Dept.’s own admission — than condos occupied by previous U.N. ambassadors such as Samantha Power, Susan Rice and John Bolton.

    A Mission spokesperson told The New York Post in January, “The U.S. Mission [to the U.N.] leases Ambassador Haley’s residence at a considerable costs savings from our prior residence at the Waldorf-Astoria.”

    Haley currently occupies a full-floor penthouse at 50 U.N. Plaza, just blocks from the U.N., where she is often expected to entertain other U.N. delegates and foreign dignitaries. The penthouse was leased by the Obama administration with an option to buy.

    So who bought the curtains, did you see the windows in that penthouse apt. She lives in luxury. Drapes and curtains probably cost that much for wall those windows, so it matters not who bought them really.
