What happened to Caylee Anthony?

The trial is over, a success for the defense, an the media fed outrage has started. Of course it won't last long but the mob mentality is interesting to observe. Yes, there are certainly more questions than answers, the main one being if not guilty what happened to Caylee.

The prosecution and the police have much to answer. The Anthony family appears to be a degraded one, this is especially true if the child's death was accidental. The simplest solution would have been to call 911 and report it. The situation was allowed to spiral out of control (maybe) and subject the father and brother of Casey Anthony to the most disgusting accusations. Accusations which the defense never offered any evidence nor is it expected to do so. The body or remains thereof were identified within reason. How did they get to the place of discovery? Why was an accidental death distorted by a cover up? Why the charade about searching for the child in hopes of finding her alive?

Without doubt the truth will emerge over the years, perhaps quite soon as Casey cannot be retried for the crime if there was one. There are a few lessons to be learned or relearned. Usually a family murder is committed by a family member. Police investigators are often not capable of a real investigation, particularly if the case becomes complicated. The compulsion by authorities to clear a case put someone, anyone on death row is a force not to be under estimated.

Trial should not be televised or transmitted over the radio. There is too much temptation for the actors to become just that. The emotional bias of broadcast events detracts from a real examination of evidence. There was little enough of that on offer. The public is generally incapable of resisting media manipulation; this much is obvious from the anger about the acquittal. It is also why political life in the US in agonizing.

When the next "Trial of the Century" rolls around, turn off the television.

We're All Socialists Now

It seems that the editors of Time Magazine and their Sorosian supporters are willing to give up our liberty and freedom so that they may enjoy dominating the rest of us. Today, Independence from Britain day, is the one event in our history that should be celebrated and held sacred. Without it no doubt there would have been more than two civil wars.

Liberals have no idea about the meaning of freedom or liberty. Conservatives are not willing to fight for either  principle. This brings us to our situation of confusion, self-doubt, and various hate(fear) based behaviors on a national scale.  Apparently many citizens will give up freedom for the chance of being protected by the government. These people vote away their freedom of choice. At the moment the United  States is a mini-Orwellian culture. Almost everything the government postulates as truth is in fact the opposite.  Their is very little evidence of the fourth estate, the media, doing its job. Rather these journalism school graduates are parrots for the rulers.

In the United States the citizens are not ruled they are represented; at least that was the idea. European Progressive Ideas, introduced to the US in the mid-19th century have corrupted the constitutional basis of American freedom. The tremendous influx of middle and southern Europeans during this period provided a malleable voting base for progressives. Slowly the welfare state emerged and with it freedom and liberty made their exit.

Because the constitution is denigrated, not explained to youngsters, and fake socialism embraced by the "leaders", the USA finds itself adrift in a sea of slogans without basis. The government is going to created jobs. This is impossible. Jobs are created by a free people innovating to produce goods and services other free people want and are willing to pay for. This will not happen in the USA again for quite awhile.

Independence Day should be a day of contemplation; unfortunately that requires the ability to think . Thinking is a faculty that has mostly been lost among the emotional response to life problems.

I urge everyone to strive for independence. It is not an easy thing to attain, but is easily lost.

Independence Day

I just heard a news report that the liberal side of America is calling July 4th a Republican propaganda holiday. This idea shows just how far we, as a people, have fallen. It is difficult to get excited about being separated from an oppressive English government as most US citizens are happy with an oppressive US government. A large percentage of Americans can not remember freedom and liberty for all. A big portion of society thinks that human nature can be improved and that the Constitution of the United States is antiquated.  How can such people be expected to celebrate the hard won freedom they are discarding at every turn?

The United States is based on the idea that each person has God given rights to Freedom, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. All these concepts have been corrupted by 19th century European anti-monarchism. The founders of the USA were the first serious anti-monarchists and realized that the tendency of those trusted to govern would be a corruption dictated by human nature. So called European thinkers denied this from the mid n 19th century on (if not sooner). They were and are wrong.

The United States is based on freedom from government. That basis appears to be disappearing. Human nature tends to laziness, and oppression. The siren song that government can cure all ills is obviously a delusion embraced by many. It is interesting that most so called activists have never had a job but live by donations from agenda driven wealthy dominators. It is amazing how self righteous these parasites are when spending other people's money.

It is time for a new independence movement which encourages a return to the idea of personal responsibility for one's life and actions. This includes the responsibility to life a moral life: no stealing, no murder, no assault, and an exhibition of courteous behavior. Alas, this seems to be a pipe dream.

Most Americans, and other populations as well, are so poorly educated that they cannot think for themselves. It is a pitiful state of affairs and one that will not get better until it gets much worse.

What to expect next

News junkies are in heaven these days, unfortunately there is little news and a lot of gossip. You folks can expect more of the same. Is it possible to be informed in today's super heated political climate? It is difficult but not impossible. One must carefully peruse news sites, blogs, television, and magazines and then use one's critical thinking capacity to decide what is true and what isn't.

The tough thing about such activities is that most people seem bereft of thinking ability. Much of what is read is simply based on emotions, wishes, and misinformation twice digested. Such is the state of affairs that many people seem to live their lives in a permanent state of rage. Why should this be the case?

Liberals are rabid because they are poorly educated and leave the thinking to their leaders. Conservatives are passionate but passive; they have good manners. It is very likely that any violence perpetrated upon society will be based on liberal tenets and performed by masked liberals pretending to be intellectual firebombers. One only has to look at the videos of any WTO conclave city.
Liberal thinking is adolescent. Anyone watching and listening to Bill Maher, Barack Obama, Charles Schumer, et al must wonder how long it will be before these folks complete their high school life. What passes for humor or thought in this group is worthy of 10th graders.

Take note that anyone that disagrees with a liberal is simply howled down. There can be no exchange of ideas or civil discourse. In fact if one wants to understand liberal thinking and therefore forecast liberal behavior simply listen to what is said and reverse it. Whatever liberals accuse conservatives of planning or doing is actually what liberals are planning or doing.

The famous accusations against Bush, name any, are now being realized under Obama. There is much less liberty in the USA now than ever in its history. It is going to get worse. Liberals feel not think. So what can we expect in the near future?

There will be more attenuation of personal liberty and revocation of rights based on the idea that the government knows best. There will be increased surveillance of dissidents on the basis of public safety. There will be less economic freedom and more economic hardship. The government cannot create real jobs.

Only private enterprise can create jobs that are the result of wealth creation Government jobs are ancillary to real work. The government of the United States has become extortionate in its redistribution of private wealth; the net result in the long term will be national poverty. With less than 60 % of the population paying taxes it is left to the productive portion of the private economy to carry the rest of the people. This can not last. Yet liberals seem to think this is ideal.
