Dear Thomas A.
My first question relating to this "join" is whether
this will place emails from your organization into our email box, or whether
your intent is to place our mailings on your posts to the members in your
organization? The reason I ask is because we quite commonly receive the same
requests from numerous other organizations, and you could imagine what would be
the result of accepting each and all of them.
Please understand that while J.A.I.L. is concerned
about the abuses father's suffer, and desires to see a soon remedy available to
them, we also seek the same for women and mothers. We look at the
problem not as a gender matter, but as a judicial accountability matter.
J.A.I.L. has leaders from both men and women's organizations around the country,
and we have a policy that J.A.I.L. will labor on behalf of both genders against
a common arbitrary judicial system that affects us all.
J.A.I.L. is the uniting of all organizations, all
political parties, all causes, and both genders, and avoids conflicts of the
same. It is in this vain that I say I am interested in your issues.
Now you say, "We really need the help of
someone who can draft up legal proposals!" I respect this,
and if you will receive it in the spirit of which it is intended, J.A.I.L. is
that "legal proposal" you are seeking. Any other legal proposal or objective, no
matter how otherwise good and appropriate, is but hacking at the limbs of the
tree of evil. Remember, there are a thousand good causes we all could spend time
and money in seeking a cure, but there can be but only one paramount single
ultimate priority cause. Judicial accountability is that one and only paramount
cause! J.A.I.L. is the cornerstone of freedom and liberty for America, and
without it there shall be neither!
Here is my recommendation, Thomas. Do yourself and all
the fathers within the Father's Rights Movement across America a favor. Join in
the effort to focus your attention on the passage of J.A.I.L. in your state,
and every state throughout this country. Once J.A.I.L. is passed, then
you can focus your organization, and all other Father's Rights Organization's
attention, on whatever cause fancies you that you see lacking. With
passage of J.A.I.L. all organizations will win, and conversely, without
J.A.I.L., all organizations will suffer judicial blows and defeats to their
Conclusion: Post J.A.I.L. on your websites, talk
about J.A.I.L. at your meetings, invite J.A.I.L. speakers to your seminars and
events, place up billboards that draw attention to J.A.I.L., make up J.A.I.L.
bumper stickers to place on your cars, get on the radio and talk up
J.A.I.L., etc. "United We Stand" must be more than words, for if we have not
that single paramount cause upon which we all unite. We can yell,
"United We Stand," and "God bless America," and waive our flags till
the cows come home, but God will start blessing America when they start
supporting judicial accountability. Otherwise we shall all continue to
be whittled away down the slop of descent by our common enemy. Please,
please hear what I say and respond to me on what I have just proposed to

Mr. Ron Branson:
My name is Thomas A. Lessman and I am
the Chairman of an organization called The Million Dads March Inc. We
are working to set up a series of events designed to bring attention to
Fathering Issues, such as education for fathers, fathers rights, legal aid for
I can see that we go for many of the same goals,
especially in regards to the "family" courts and legal system in respect to
fathers in divorce/custody situations. The legal drafts you've written
and have posted on your website are excellent. The more people that know
about them, the better their chance of getting passed into law.
On the MDM website (www.milliondadsmarch.org) I will
soon have a page called "Legal Proposals". On this page I want to put
proposals that have been written in order to help fathers and children.
Since many of your proposals would help us, I would like to put them on this
page. I will happily give Jail4Judges and the author of the proposal any
