Something has always bothered me about the O.J. Simpson murder trial. He asserted his Fifth Amendment Right against self-incrimination and refused to take the stand. If a defendant does not “take the Fifth” he is open to cross examination. When Simpson’s attorneys asked him stand up before the jury and try on the gloves he mugged and acted as though he was struggling. Is seems to me that even though no words were spoken by Simpson and he was not physically “on the stand” his actions amounted to testimony. I believe that when Simpson left his seat at the defendants table and “tried on” the gloves he effectively waived his Fifth Amendment right. The Prosecution should have been all over that especially since the verdict was based on “if the glove don’t fit you must acquit.” Tsk tsk Marsha Clark.

Obama’s first term is headed toward the final lap. What is remarkable is how little he has been able to get done while in the White House. He was elected with great hopes of change. He entered office with a list of promises to fix what was broken. Unfortunately the list has not gotten shorter. The unpopular war continues and the bad economy gets worse. The main reason he has failed is that he cannot get the congress to back him on his agenda. When it comes to congress Obama is like the mom who wants to be the Popular Mom and it hasn’t been working. Maybe he should be more like the Tiger Mom.
Standard and Poor’s is at it again, reeking chaos on the level of Thing One and Thing Two. They have lowered the credit rating of the United States. According to the Washington Post, the effect of the downgrade “…could push up borrowing costs for the U.S. government, costing taxpayers tens of billions of dollars a year. It could also drive up interest rates for consumers and companies seeking mortgages, credit cards and business loans. “
The people of our nation have struggled long enough with an economy that is on the brink. Curious thing though, the economy was put on the brink in part by overvalued sub-prime mortgage-backed securities. And who was responsible for the overrating these mortgage-backed securities…that’s right Standard and Poor’s.

Casey Anthony…Nancy Grace…they are the same creature. Both have voluntarily taken on responsibility and both were disastrous failures. Casey gave birth to a daughter. As a mom her responsibility was to make sure that her daughter is always under a watchful eye. Even if we believe her defense team’s explanation that the cause of death was an accidental drowning while Casey sat in the house with her father…Casey is still responsible. Her daughter was left unattended with fatal results.
Nancy Grace holds herself out as a news reporter. But what she reports is not even close to news. Nancy Grace covered the trial gavel to gavel and her message to her viewership even before any evidence was heard was that Casey Anthony was guilty of murder and should get the death penalty. Her commentary was calculated to incite the crowd. The result was a horde of Casey Anthony haters delivering death threats, and now Casey Anthony life is in jeopardy.
Casey Anthony put her daughter’s life in jeopardy by leaving her unattended in a yard with a swimming pool and Nancy Grace put Casey Anthony’s life in jeopardy by creating a mob of people who have made serious and credible threats to kill Ms. Anthony. Nancy Grace and Casey Anthony are very much alike

Women beware if you hire Gloria Allred as your attorney she will portray you as the helpless victim. So, women, think twice before you hire Ms. Allred as you will be abandoning the feminist movement and joining Ms. Allred’s Special Victims Unit.
I know that it is a children’s book only a few dozen pages and illustrated, but in these times when the country is struggling with massive unemployment, a scary weak economy, rising health costs, rising education costs, not to mention a war half way around the world still claiming the lives of our sons and daughters couldn’t you have waited until you finished your job before you retired to the typewriter?
Please turn around and look out your window.
