Jailed for Defending Daughter From TSA

Defending your young daughter from molestation by government gropers comes at a price:

Andrea Fornella Abbott, 41, was arrested at Nashville airport after she went wild on Transportation Security Administration agents for trying to give her daughter a pat down search.

Nashville police said Abbot, from Clarksville, Tenn., shouted and swore at TSA agents, saying she didn’t want her young daughter to have her “crotch grabbed.” …

After Abbott refused to cool her heels — she allegedly attempted to try to shoot video of the agents with her cell phone — cops cuffed her and hauled her off to jail.

The age of the daughter is being kept secret, probably for the same reason the media is spinning this story to make Abbott look like a maniac — to avoid public outrage.

If anyone in a position of authority had the spine to admit that the threat comes not from children but from Muslims, this idiocy could be avoided.

Thai Cook Fries His Own Hands, Doesn’t Get Burned

A man can stick his hand into burning hot cooking oil and remove it unburned:
Kann “Superhands” Trichan got the cool nickname for his incredible ability of scooping pieces of chicken from burning-hot oil with his bare hands.

The 50-year-old Chiang Mai-based street cook can sink his fingers into 480 degrees hot grease without getting so much as a blister on his hands, and his amazing ability has won him international fame. People from all over the world come to his “Fried Chicken Iron Hands Man” food stall to see Kann use his hands to scoop out the chicken and he and his wife travel the globe showing off his gift. Superhands has no idea why he can do what he does, but he’s just happy it brings more and more customers for his business, every day.

Kann Trichan first discovered his unusual gift seven years ago, when he accidentally got hot oil splattered all over his body. While attending his giant woks, he noticed a squirrel eating a mango on a branch just above him. The squirrel dropped the big fruit right in the oil splattering it all over Kann’s body and head. A taxi took him home and when he got up the next day ready to go see a doctor, he took a look in the mirror only to see he had no burns. The redness was fading away and his skin was practically intact, so he just decided to go back to work, to the astonishment of his fellow street vendors.

Don’t Blame Speculators for Oil Price Hikes


 

The speculators are ripping us off! …..NOT!

“The skyrocketing price of gas and oil has nothing to do with the fundamentals of supply and demand, and has everything to do with Wall Street firms that are artificially jacking up the price of oil in the energy futures markets.

“The same Wall Street speculators that caused the worst financial crisis since the 1930s through their greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior are ripping off the American people again by gambling that the price of oil and gas will continue to go up.”

Here we go again. That quote was Sen. Bernie Sanders doing what some always do when the price of oil spikes: Complain about speculators.

Now, President Obama says he’ll investigate them: “We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain.”

I assume that his new Financial Fraud Enforcement Working Group, like its predecessors, will uncover nothing untoward.

In America, we don’t have a free market — we have a government-saturated economy in which oil companies and other corporations have a cozy relationship with politicians and bureaucrats. That’s wrong, but even that can’t explain the recent run-up in prices.

Oil companies today are no more greedy or clever than they have been all along.

We have to look for a better explanation — and it isn’t hard to find. Demand for oil rises with the growth of China, India, and other developing countries. When poor people get a little richer, they buy cars, computers, and refrigerators. They burn more fuel to make them and to run them. Rising demand, other things being equal, increases prices.

And other things have not been equal. Japan’s nuclear plants are out of commission, and Libya, which accounts for about 2 percent of world oil production, is wracked by civil war. This is small compared to previous disruptions in the region, but it still affects the price.

The evil oil-speculator theory also runs up against the fact that the Federal Reserve’s inflationary policies (QE2) and other factors have continued the dollar’s slide against foreign currencies — to a three-year low.

As the dollar loses value, oil sellers demand more for their product. “Commodities, along with most traded goods globally, are priced in dollars,” former Federal Reserve official Gerald P. O’Driscoll of the Cato Institute writes. “It is the old story of too much money chasing too few goods.”

If Sanders and other economic illiterates get their way, we’ll have new laws banning “speculation.” That will raise prices further.

Don’t believe me? Think back to a previous time when a Senate committee said that “speculative activity causes severe and unwarranted fluctuations in the price.” That was in 1958, when people got upset about the price of onions.

Fools in Congress addressed that problem by banning speculation on onion prices.

The result? A Financial Times analysis found that the ban made prices less stable. This year, the retail price of onions rose more than the price of gasoline — 36 versus 24 percent. Most years, the price of onions fluctuates more than other goods. No mystery there.

Speculators help keep prices stable. When they foresee a future oil shortage — that is, when prices are lower than anticipated in the future — speculators buy lots of it, store it, and then sell it when the shortage hits.

They know they can charge more when there’s relatively little oil on the market. But their selling during the shortage brings prices down from what they would have been had speculators not acted.

Speculators are like the ants in Aesop’s “Ants and the Grasshopper” fable: They save resources for lean times. Everyone benefits because everyone has a chance to buy from them in those lean times.

Speculators don’t “artificially jack up the price of oil” — they take risks. Those who guess wrong lose a lot of money.

Historically, speculators have been convenient scapegoats, and they have suffered greatly for it. So have the rest of us.

While government should never create political opportunities for speculation, it should also stop interfering with its legitimate economic function.

NOT GUILTY!… SEIU Thugs Cleared in Brutal Gladney Beatdown! …Update: Gladney Reaction (Video) SICK SICK SICK!!

WHAT!!!!……ANOTHER CASEY ANTHONY JURY???????? Look up the meaning of “JURY NULLIFICATION”…..Papa Mike

NOT GUILTY- SEIU GOONS CLEARED IN GLADNEY BEATING!

This is what Kenneth Gladney and his wife said outside the courtroom. Here is their first reaction—
“I couldn’t beat them; I didn’t have the resources they had. They had all the money in the world and the backing… I’m just an average man.”

 

Video of first reaction after the verdict:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVI1qt8GrtQ[/youtube]

** It was the prosecutor’s first jury trial.

The Kenneth Gladney beatdown case continued this morning in St. Louis County Court.
After a health care town hall meeting in August 2009 St. Louis native Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Rep. Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters. Gladney spent the night in the hospital after the beating.

 

 

 

Kenneth Gladney attended a protest against SEIU violence following his beatdown in St. Louis.

Accused SEIU thug Perry Molens who beat Gladney told the jury this morning that he saw Gladney selling Obama-in-white-face swag outside the town hall…
So then he beat his a$$ on the pavement.

 


Below is the video how all this began…It shows Ken was beaten by these SEIU union thugs!!  CAUGHT ON TAPE!

OBAMA TRYING TO SCARE OLDER AMERICANS; THREATENS SOCIAL SECUIRTY CHECKS

What do you want to bet Obama’s Kept-Whores in the media will try and blame republicans for not reaching a debt ceiling deal which then resulted in Americans not getting their social security checks?

Because Obama has threatened to withhold just those checks.
If Obama were a man of principle, he WOULD have said that if there is not debt deal, all non-essential personnel would be laid off. Or he might have said that all pay checks to all employees would be reduced by 10%.

Or he could just admit he’s a total fuckup and give republicans the ability to slash government spending and nipping in the bud any talk of default.

But, no.
He goes after the old folks. He scares them. He frightens them.
He’s a bully.
He’s a piece of shit.
He’s not worthy of being called president.
Remember, we’re in this mess because for over 2 years democrats never passed a budget.
Nor, at any time in the past, have we had to raise taxes to raise the debt ceiling. NEVER.
So why now?
Easy. To them it’s all about politics. Never principled action.
President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.
The Obama administration and many economists have warned of economic catastrophe if the United States does not raise the amount it is legally allowed to borrow by August 2.
Lawmakers from both parties want to use the threat of that deadline to work out a broader package on long-term deficit reduction, with Republicans looking to cut trillions of dollars in federal spending, while Democrats are pushing for a more “balanced approach,” which would include both spending cuts and increased revenue through taxes.

Texas Heat (also could be the Kansas City area the last several days!! )

This year is no exception!!

Just moved to Texas.  Now this is a state that knows how to live!!!  Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings…it is beautiful!!!  I’ve finally found my home.  I love it here!!!

June 14th:
Really heating up.  Got to 100 today.  Not a problem.  Live in an air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car.  What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this.  I’m turning into a sun worshipper.

June 30th:
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today.  Lots of cactus and rocks.  What a breeze to maintain.  No more mowing the lawn for me.  Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

July 10th:
The temperature hasn’t been below 100 all week.  How do people get used to this kind of heat?  At least, it’s kind of windy though.  But getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected.

July 15th:
Fell asleep by the community pool.  (Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body).  Missed 3 days of work.  What a dumb thing to do.  I learned my lesson though.  Got to respect the ol’ sun in a climate like this.

July 20th:
I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning.  By the time I got to the hot car at noon, Lomita had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag, then popped like a water balloon.  The car now smells like Kibbles and Shits..  I learned my lesson though.  No more pets in this heat.  Good ol’ Mr. Sun strikes again.

July 25th:
The wind sucks.  It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer!!!  And it’s hot as hell.  The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the A/C repairman charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order parts.

July 30th:
Been sleeping outside on the patio for 3 nights now, $225,000 house and I can’t even go insi! de.  Lomita is the lucky one.  Why did I ever come here?

Aug. 4th:
It’s 115 degrees.  Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today.  It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85.  I hate this stupid state.

Aug. 8th:
If another wise ass cracks, “Hot enough for you today?”  I’m going to strangle him.  Damn heat.  By the time I get to work, the radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like baked cat!!!

Aug. 9th:
Tried to run some errands after work.  Wore shorts, and when sat on the seats in the car, I thought my ass was on fire.  My skin melted to the seat.  I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and ass.  Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried ass and baked cat.

Aug. 10th:
The weather report might as well be a damn recording.  Hot and sunny.  Hot and sunny.  Hot and sunny.  It’s been too hot to do shit for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.  Doesn’t it ever rain in this damn state?  Water rationing will be next, so my $1700 worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over.  Even the cactus can’t live in this damn heat.

Aug. 14th:
Welcome to HELL! Temperature got to 115 today.  Cactus are dead.  Forgot to crack the window and blew the damn windshield out of the car.  The installer came to fix it and guess what he asked me???  “Hot enough for you today?”  My sister had to spend $1,500 to bail me out of jail.  Freaking Texas.  What kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here?!?!?!?

Will write later to let you know how the trial goes.

How Many Members Of The U.S. Congress Are Self-Declared Socialists?

 

Updated for the 111th Congress

The following FAQ will help clarify a few facts:

Q: What is the Socialist International?

A:  It is the worldwide organization of socialist, social democratic and labor parties. It currently brings together 131 political parties and organizations from all continents. Its origins go back to the early international organizations of the labor movement of the last century.* It has existed in its present form since 1951, when it was re-established at the Frankfurt Congress. They are now headquartered in London, England.

* In 1864, representatives of English and French industrial workers founded the International Workingmen’s Association in London. Karl Marx, who was living in London at the time, became the First International’s dominant figure. Marx’s doctrines were revived in the 20th century by Russian revolutionary Vladimir Ilich Lenin, who developed and applied them – and we all know that what was started as a labor movement ended up as the biggest totalitarian/communist state, i.e., the USSR.

Q: What is the Democratic Socialists of America [DSA]?

A: It is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. Their website is http://www.dsausa.org/dsa.html

Q: What are seven principles behind what the DSA’s calls it’s “Progressive Challenge?”

Dignified Work
Environmental Justice
Economic Redistribution
Democratic Participation
Community Empowerment
Global Non-Violence
Social Justice.

Never mind their soothing-sounding leftist doublespeak like ‘Environmental Justice’ (whatever that is supposed to mean) or the soft & fuzzy ‘Global Non-Violence’ (a euphemism for unilateral disarmament) — the DSA’s self-declared principle of ‘Economic Redistribution’ clearly shows where these folks are coming from and exactly where they plan to take America.

Q: How many members of the U.S. Congress are also members of the DSA?

A: Seventy!

Q: How many of the DSA members sit on the Judiciary Committee?

A: Eleven: John Conyers [Chairman of the Judiciary Committee], Tammy Baldwin, Jerrold Nadler, Luis Gutierrez, Melvin Watt, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Steve Cohen, Barbara Lee, Robert Wexler, Linda Sanchez [there are 23 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee of which eleven, almost half, are now members of the DSA].

UN STICKS NOSE WHERE IT DOESN’T BELONG

Some bleeding heart, criminal defending asswipe at the UN is trying to say that Texas broke some international law.

A top United Nations’ rights official said the United States was in breach of international law over the execution of a 38-year-old Mexican citizen in Texas.
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said Friday the Texas execution of Humberto Garcia Leal “raises particular legal concerns,” including whether he had access to consular services and a fair trial

Pillay also cited a 2004 International Court of Justice ruling saying the U.S. must review and reconsider the cases of 51 Mexican nationals sentenced to death, including Leal’s — but, she said, that never happened.

Texas executed Leal Thursday over objections from President Barack Obama’s administration that the action would violate international treaty obligations and put U.S. citizens abroad at risk.
But what Texas did also “places the U.S. in breach of international law,” said Pillay, who visited Mexico this week. “What the state of Texas has done in this case is imputable in law to the U.S. and engages the United States’ international responsibility.”

I got two three things to say to this pansy-assed POS:
1. bet you would not feel the same if some rapist did your daughter or wife
2. last time I checked we have our own laws. The UN does not dictate our laws to us

Allen West Says What We Are All Thinking, “The President Needs To Realize That Eric Holder Needs To Be Removed”

Allen West today said that a special prosecutor needs to review the actions of Attorney General Eric Holder regarding the “Fast and Furious” gun scandal where weapons were sold to carriers known to supply Mexican drug lords, and the circumstances make it appear that President Obama could have dirty hands in the deal.

During an appearance on the Steve Gill Show, U.S. Rep. Allen West said the roads that appear to lead to those responsible for the botched program that was supposed to trace guns to high-ranking drug lords are alarming.

“This is just another sad chapter in the Eric Holder book of ineptness and incompetence,” West said. “Eric Holder needs to be brought before an investigative committee and if those charges are warranted he needs to be held accountable.

“At least the president needs to realize that Eric Holder needs to be removed from the Department of Justice . . . or else it appears President Obama is complicit and in approval of the actions of his attorney general,” he said.

Planned Parenthood now teaching girls how to hide self-medicated abortions from their parents

 

Your tax dollars hard at work.

In advance of the UN youth conference later this month, the International Planned Parenthood Federation has released two new publications on abortion and sexual rights for youth. The new documents are the latest part of the organization’s larger campaign targeted at teenagers and older children.

The sexual rights guide “Exclaim!” calls for a cornucopia of sexuality and gender protections and entitlements under the guise of international law. “Governments must respect, protect and fulfill all sexual rights for young people,” the publication states.

The guide is designed as a tool to help young people become sex advocates.

AN EAGLE KISSED BY GOD

This is the kind of story you need when it seems like your world is spiraling out of control and you think there is NO HOPE….I have probably read thousands of emails, but NONE have touched me like this one and I know if you take the few minutes to read this you will totally agree……Mike

 

Freedom and Jeff
Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer.
She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken
wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way
even after surgery, it was broken in 4
places.  She’s my baby.

When Freedom came in she could not stand
and both wings were broken. She was
emaciated and covered in lice. We made the
decision to give her a chance at life, so I took
her to the vets office.  From then
on, I was always around her. We had her in a
huge dog carrier with the top off,  and it
was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to
lay in.  I used to sit and talk to her,
urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay
there looking at me with those big brown eyes.
We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still
couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the
decision was made to euthanize her if she
couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t
want to cross that line between torture and
rehab, and it looked like death was
winning.  She was going to be put
down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in
on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go
to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t
bear the thought of her being euthanized;
but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone
was grinning from ear to ear. I went
immediately back to her cage; and there she was,
standing on her own, a big beautiful
eagle.  She was ready to live.  I was
just about in tears by then.  That
was a very good day.

We knew she could never fly,  so the director
asked me to glove train her. I got her used to
the glove, and then to jesses,  and we
started doing education programs for schools in
western Washington ..
We wound up in the newspapers,
radio (believe it or not) and some
TV.   Miracle Pets even did a show
about us.

In the spring of 2000, I was diagnosed with
non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I had stage 3,
which is not good (one major organ plus
everywhere), so I wound up doing 8 months of
chemo.  Lost the hair – the whole
bit.  I missed a lot of work. When I
felt good enough, I would go to Sarvey
and take Freedom out for walks. Freedom would
also come to me in my dreams and help me fight
the cancer. This happened time and time again.

Fast forward to November 2000, the day after
Thanksgiving.  I went in for my last
checkup. I was told that if the cancer was not
all gone after 8 rounds of chemo, then my last
option was a stem cell transplant. Anyway, they
did the tests; and I had to come back Monday for
the results.  I went in Monday, and I was
told that all the cancer was gone.

So the first thing I did was get up to Sarvey and
take the big girl out for a walk. It was misty
and cold. I went to her flight and jessed her
up, and we went out front to the top of the
hill.  I hadn’t said a word to
Freedom, but somehow she knew. She looked at me
and wrapped both her wings around me to where I
could feel them pressing in on my back
(I was engulfed in eagle wings), and she
touched my nose with her beak and stared into my
eyes, and we just stood there like that
for I don’t know how long ..  That was a
magic moment.  We have been soul mates ever
since she came in.  This is a very special bird.

On a side note:  I have had people who
were sick come up to us when we are out, and
Freedom has some kind of hold on
them.  I once had a guy who was
terminal come up to us and I let him hold
her.  His knees just about buckled and he
swore he could feel her power course through his
body. I have so many stories like that..

I never forget the honor I have of being so close
to such a magnificent spirit as
Freedom.

Finding The Real Killers

I didn’t pay any attention to the Casey Anthony trial, so I don’t know much about the particulars except she got off and most people think she was guilty. The jury didn’t. Just like the O.J. Simpson trial.

Maybe when OJ gets out of jail, she and Casey can join up and search for the “real killers” of his wife and Casey’s daughter. Wonder if she plays golf? OJ spent most of his time searching for the “real killer” on the golf course.

Look! There he is! Behind that tree! With Elvis!

Actual comments made by Southern Troopers that were taken off their car videos:

1. “You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.”

2. “Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them awhile.”

3. “If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.”

4. “If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.”

5. “Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.” (LOVE IT)

6. “You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?”

7. “Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I’m the shift supervisor?”

8. “Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I’m warning you not to do that again or I’ll give you another ticket.”

9. “The answer to this last question will determine whether yo u are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?”

10. “Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop.”

11. “Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.”

12. “In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC.” (National Crime Information Center)

13. “Just how big were those ‘two beers’ you say you had?”

14. “No, sir, we don’t have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we can.”

15. “I’m glad to hear that the Chief of Police is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.”

AND THE WINNER IS….
16. “You didn’t think we gave pretty women tickets? You’re right, we don’t. Sign here.” (OUCH!)

AWESOME Just Simply AWESOME!

I wish I had this guy’s talent!

An amateur astronomer from Australia created this stunning time-lapse video of the night sky over the ocean. It shows clouds streaming across the sky, star-spangled heavens and the oscillations of the tide. It took Alex Cherney of Victoria, Australia a year to compile the 30 hours of exposure. In May Cherney took the overall prize at the STARMUS astrophotography competition for this video.

CALIFORNIA SCHOOLS TO TEACH “FAGGOTS IN HISTORY!!”

California is suffering from a huge economic problem. Many public employees make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year and retire with million dollar pensions.

Hell, the state’s “prison psychiatrist” made over $800,000 last year!!!

A chief psychiatrist for California’s overcrowded prison system was paid more than any other state employee in 2010, according to payroll figures released today.

The doctor, whose name wasn’t released, had a salary range of $261,408 to $308,640 and collected a total of $838,706, according to data released by Controller John Chiang. The total includes bonuses or payout of unused vacation time or sick days, according to the controller’s office. Chiang’s office later issued a statement saying the figure was wrong and would be corrected, without elaborating.

So with all that they should be concerned with, what do Californicating state legislators work on?

Mandating “faggots in history.”

The bill, passed on a party-line vote, adds lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people as well as people with disabilities to the list of groups that schools must include in the lessons. It also would prohibit material that reflects adversely on gays.

Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco says SB48 is crucial because of the bullying that happens to gay students. Republicans called it a well-intentioned but ill-conceived bill and raised concerns that it would indoctrinate children to accept homosexuality.

“This bill will require California schools to present a more accurate and nuanced view of American history in our social science curriculum by recognizing the accomplishments of groups that are not often recognized,” said Assembly Speaker John Perez, the first openly gay speaker of the California Assembly.

The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, who has not said whether he would sign it. Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed a similar bill in 2006. Bloomberg has more about Brown and the possible impact this decision could have on the state’s — and the nation’s – textbook production and sales:

Brown, a 73-year-old Democrat, has 12 days to sign or veto the measure. His decision will affect not only the state’s 6.2 million students in public school. California is the largest textbook buyer in the U.S., representing almost 13 percent of the $3.4 billion market in 2009, according to the Association of American Publishers. School publishers typically try to sell California-approved texts to other states.

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, a Republican from Twin Peaks, said he was offended as a Christian that the bill was being used to promote a “homosexual agenda” in public schools.

“I think it’s one thing to say that we should be tolerant,” Donnelly said. “It is something else altogether to say that my children are going to be taught that this lifestyle is good.”

So, rather than teach history and focus on social studies so our kids understand the importance of how we became the greatest and freest country EVER in history, they’re going to teach Liberace and Elton John? Maybe the contributions of Freddie Mercury?

These are the same kind of schools graduating Americans who have no clue what the 4th of July was about.

……..thousands of people have been found “GUILTY” with “circumstantial evidence”, BUT these 12 jurors refused to do it,  AND “NOT GUILTY” Does NOT Mean Your Innocent!. When told by 2 FBI evidence professionals that there was a decomposed piece of hair and the smell of ‘chloroform’ in Casey’s car trunk they didn’t believe them….Papa Mike

Casey Anthony juror Jennifer Ford said that she and the other jurors cried and were “sick to our stomachs” after voting to acquit Casey Anthony of charges that she killed her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

“I did not say she was innocent,” said Ford, who had previously only been identified as juror No. 3. “I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, you cannot determine what the punishment should be.”

CASEY ANTHONY: SINGLE MOM OF THE YEAR!….

How many months of man-hours did Florida police spend searching for little Caylee Anthony back in 2008, while her mother, Casey Anthony, knew exactly where the child’s body was?

If you were the victim of a crime in Orlando, Fla., between July and December 2008, you should be enraged that the police couldn’t prevent or investigate your crime because they were too busy looking for a missing child whose mother already knew the kid was dead.
