Fatherless Shooters

Every now and again an article is written that just has to be reprinted in full. Professor Paul Kengor has written a brilliant expose called “Fatherless Shooters … as Liberals Push for Fatherless Families” on the tragic outworking on of the Boy crisis. Of course, as broken men we must share part of the blame as all these things have ...

Heroes & Mentors

The great writer Ernest Hemingway said, “As you get older it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary”. I have found that to be true. Age does not diminish the need for heroes, they just become harder to find, but they are still necessary. Our children, especially when they are younger, look up to us as ...

Hard to Be Humble

This week’s newsletter is called ‘Hard to be Humble’. I had suggested ‘Father Eats Humble Pie’ or ‘Bossy Boots Bites the Dust’ but I was over-ruled so I accepted the sanitized ‘Hard to be Humble’. Let me explain: Many years ago one of our former board members, Phil Latz had the bright idea of organising a fundraising 40km bike ride ...

My Hidden Secret

  I don’t know about your Christmas, but our family had a very enjoyable family gathering. Our whole family gets together immediately before Christmas to allow our family members to meet with their own or extended family on Christmas Day. We started this custom some years ago and it works for us. The good news is that we get to ...

Hollywood Hypocrisy

I have watched the continuing current expose of Hollywood’s culture of sexual depravity with breathless be-wonderment. Its been a long time coming and long overdue!  Mike Powell has written and excellent article in the Spectator about the subject called ‘Hollywood Hypocrisy’. “Mike Pence, the current Vice President of the United States, has been mocked and ridiculed for following the revelation ...

Destruction of Marriage & Gender – a Sad Day for Australia’s children.

  The people of Australia have spoken. They don’t want to keep marriage as it is and has always been for thousands of years, through countless cultures, from time immemorial. They want to redefine marriage. How sad! The Postal Survey was mailed out to 16,006,180 Australians. Of these, 7,817,247 voted ‘Yes’. That is less than 50% (in fact it is ...

Marriage Week

Someone said, “Love is a many-splendored thing”. This week is Marriage Week, 10-16 September 2017. Whilst many of us would agree with Shakespeare, it seems that many would also agree with Eric Clapton when he sings, “Why does love got to be so sad?” Several years ago my wife and I looked through the photos taken of our friends at ...

Father Jailed for Trying to Protect his Children

David Parker simply asked his school, that he be notified when the teachers discussed homosexuality and transgenderism with his 5-year-old son in kindergarten. David Parker then calmly refused to leave the school premises until he received an answer to his reasonable request. All he wanted was to allow his children to ‘opt out’ of such politically correct nonsense. For his ...

The Quest for Adventure

‘The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure’. These are the words of Christopher McCandless, an adventurer par excellence. Maybe the cryptic words of ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody about his father, sum up our quest for adventure as men better than anything else: ‘But the love for adventure was in my father’s blood’. As men, ...

Investing in Love

I remember the day, many years ago, the door closed on our last meeting with the insolvency accountant. The sort of meeting you don’t really want to have if you can avoid it. We had just lost everything we had ever worked for, except for a few personal goods that we were allowed to keep, after a Part Ten Arrangement ...

Children Feel the Pain of Marital Conflict & Divorce

Editors Note: It is not often I include a guest post on the Justaman blog but Tony Palombi is a great man with a great story and a great family. He shares the pain of growing up in a broken home and the hope within him. Divorce hurts our children. Lets not go there! Children Feel the Pain of Marital ...

Ban Divorce

'What Children Want Most is a Ban on Divorce, Says Poll' was a headline in a major UK paper several years ago. The poll question was: "What rules would you make if you ruled the world as King or Queen?" #BanDivorce was the number one request. Nationwide research of children under 10 years of age was carried out by Luton ...

Valentines Day and the Key to a Woman’s Heart

I have heard so many men complain to me, “My wife is very high maintenance”. In most cases this statement shows a distinct lack of understanding of the fairer sex. The truth of the matter, from a man’s point of view, is all women are high maintenance. A man’s needs are very simple: food, s*x, sleep. OK, that’s a huge ...

Can”t Buy Love

When you Google 'Can't Buy Me Love', the famous song by Paul McCartney, first performed by the Beatles, way back in the sixties, 35 million references come up.  That just shows how influential the Beatles still are today, some 5 decades down the track. I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend, If it makes you feel alright. I'll get ...

Visit From the Marriage Auditor

VISIT FROM THE MARRIAGE AUDITOR Imagine you received a phone call that went something like this:  "Mr & Mrs Herald, we need to make an appointment with you to do a 'Marriage Audit'.  Can we make it 8.00pm tonight?  Thank you.  See you at 8.00pm." Marriage Audit?  I've heard of a tax audit, but what on earth is a 'Marriage ...

The Mystery of the Basket

What is it about us men? But maybe I am just talking to myself here. So sorry for bringing you into it. I have always had this attitude. It’s called ‘separation of duties’. Sort of like saying to my wife, “You do your job and I will do mine”. My wife only worked for the first three years of our ...

Marriage Matters

Many years ago I made a speech with my wife at a function in Parliament House, Canberra on the importance of mothers and fathers. Our goal was to encourage both the Liberal and Labor parties to value equally mothers and fathers after divorce, and not to follow the politically correct line that devalues fathers because of anti-male feminist ideology. The ...

Passionate for Marriage

Alison and I have always been passionate about having a good marriage and supporting and encouraging marriages everywhere. That passion is not getting weaker but it is getting stronger as we get older. Maybe my main motivation is the pain I experienced from growing up in a divided home: when Mum went her way for many years and Dad went ...

How to Love a Woman

People have said to me, “Warwick, if you could write a book about ‘How to Love a Woman’, you would be a millionaire overnight.” My problem is that every time I think I have learnt something about the art of loving a woman, and it is an art rather that a science, she changes, I change, the world changes and ...

Business Time

Humour is usually the intersection of reality with the ridiculous. This can take many shapes and forms, but what I have noticed is that really good comedians are usually very good social commentators. I should have realised this the night I was doing a Fatherhood Seminar in Launceston. The title was ‘The Seven Secrets for Success”. I use the acrostic ...

Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife

Some time ago I came across a Tim Hawkins’ video on YouTube. Tim Hawkins is a musical comedian with a difference. He made up some very interesting new words to the Green Day song, “Time of Your Life” and renamed it ‘Things You Don’t Say to Your Wife.’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK2OakMoW_c&feature=related&safe=active The second verse goes like this: I planned a hunting trip ...

Keeping Love Alive

Some time ago I received a request to speak at a Fair Divorce Forum at a local Leagues Club in Wollongong. When I first received this invitation, my inclination was to 'not accept' because I don't believe that divorce can be fair. Life is not fair and neither is love. My good friend Jeff Dakers prevailed upon me to reconsider, ...

Men and Women are DIfferent

When we were bringing up our boys in the eighties it was the vogue to suggest that boys and girls are trained to be the sex they represent by people’s expectations and gender manipulations. Almost anyone my age believed it. I carefully watched my own children’s behaviours and realised that I and my generation had believed a lie. I was ...
