Does anybody else notice this stuff? The little 5 year old girl who was kidnapped yesterday. The police found a body today. Her mother was on TV pleading for her child. There was no husband with her. At the time the child disappeared the mother was working and had dumped the girl at her grandma's who had left the girl on the street alone. If the mom had of been watching over her own child she would be ok now. A typical modern-day family? The seven year old girl who was kidnapped while home alone and murdered while her adulterous wife-swapping parents were out partying at a local bar. I can't remember her name but the suspect is on trial now on Court TV. A typical modern-day family? John "Walker-Lindh". His dad decided that he liked corn-holing other men so he divorced his wife and left the family. A young male uses his father for a role model. I imagine he lost his identity when his father perved out on him and his whole world collapsed, so what does he do? He goes out looking for an identity, trying to figure out who he is and be a man, or at least to figure out what a man is, he's not so sure anymore, and ends up with Al Keida. The father was on TV tonight and compared his son to Nelson Mandella and said the family was proud of their son and that if he was the Bushes son that they would be proud of him too. On the show one of your typical California lawyers was arguing that she thought the family was a GOOD family and reasonable with their comments but she was VERY disappointed that John only got 20 years. She thought he should have gotten life. A typical modern-day family? The thirteen year old girl who's mother divorced her father and then abandoned her. She ended up living with her aunt. Did she lose her bearings too? She became sexually promiscuous, hooked up with some guy on the internet (to replace daddy?), and was murdered by him during sex (while being strangled to increase her orgasm). So, so sad . Her body was found a while back and the guy was recently convicted of manslaughter. It was on the news today. All of these families appear to be smart, well educated, and have money, so they are not even under the stress of deprivation, their lifestyles are "simply" choices they've made. Unless things change in this country we're F%#cked. Our enemies are strong and we are wishy washy, morally relative, and weak.
