Instead of "government," howbout the constant spamming by
oftentimes promiscuous women about so-called "dead-beat" fathers so
as to be surrogate fathers with the so-called "dead-beat" fathers
separte but added incomes?

While "moving onto other woman" may be the "smart strategy in the
'biological' sense," when will it become the "smart strategy" in the
"financial" sense. That is: when the "dead-beat" father can take at
least his wallet with him?
