To Tweet or Not to Tweet – The Twitter Dilemma

30 May

Well I finally broke down and joined Twitter.

I’ve always been the type of person to resist new technology, to resist change, to try and keep my life in a nice neat little envelope. Afterall my cassette player works just fine. Why would I want a CD player. My Myspace page was just fine, why do I need to join Facebook?

And here I am again, life, technology, social networking has now advanced once again and I’m faced with the dilemma to advance with it or stay in my nice little nest. It comes in the name of Twitter!

Twitter is a website, where you can “follow” other people’s lives where in brief “tweets” they post about what they are doing, thoughts and snip-its about their lives. A little like Facebook, but more in real time, little bursts or snapshots of life.

Today is my second day and so far I have to say I like it. The problem with Facebook is that it is geared pretty much for only your friends and family. But with Twitter you can follow anybody! I find this incredibly interesting. When I lived in New York City, one of my very favorite things to do would be to sit on the pillar wall outside the GM Building where the Apple store now is, across from the Plaza Hotel, which was on 5’th Ave and Central Park South. This spot is in my opinion the center of the universe. Lots of people walking by. Tourists, business people, shoppers, and every life form known to man passed this location. I’d sit on the wall and “observe”. Like a fly on the wall, I’d watch the people walking by, listen to their conversations, and try to figure out what the person was all about in the 10 seconds it took for them to enter the viewing zone, pass in front of me, and then exit the viewing zone. I found it fascinating!

So far Twitter is providing me the same thrill. I am “following” about 40 people so far. Mostly professional track & field stars who are traveling around the world. Okay, I’ll admit it, female track stars. Not sure how my fascination with track people came about. Perhaps because they all are in very good shape and have hot bodies. ha ha! I’m sure I will move into other areas like fashion models shortly too. I don’t think I will follow movie stars. I’ve never been impressed with actors as I don’t think what they do is anything special. They pretend to be someone else and this to me is nothing extraordinary. Track & Field athletes however in my opinion do, do something special. They hone their bodies into finely tuned machines that perform incredible actions that very few can duplicate. I’m impressed with their determination, training, mental mindsets. As a former athlete in college (Baseball), I have respect for what it takes to be great in track.

So, at least for now, I am officially Tweeting on Twitter and liking it. No-one is following me yet, but I don’t have much to say anyway. Ha! Okay, maybe I do, but it would come across as arrogant to admit it.

Happy Tweeting!

“SMOTHERED” THE PROSECUTION SAYS? DUCT TAPE OVER MOUTH AND NOSE? Casey Anthony Trial

28 May

How can this be? There was no skin left on the body. The tape would have been attached to the skin and when the skin is gone it just falls.

I think the duct tape was just on the ground. Perhaps to hold the bag shut from the outside so animals don’t get in it. Yes, there was a heart on it because George and Casey did it together after the accident and said a prayer for Caylee.

Another Prosecution and Medical Examiner stretching, reaching for some sort of explanation on their Witch Hunt!

I leave you with this: If Caylee was “murdered”, “smothered”! Why just 3 pieces? Why not wrap it and wrap it and wrap it?

If Casey is cold blooded murderer, why not do the job right! Because she didn’t!

“Maggots” key to Casey Anthony Trial – Maggots Don’t Eat Pizza!

27 May

If the Defense picks up on it, THE SMELL IN THE CAR has been just explained by George Anthony and he didn’t even know it!

Maggots!

George Anthony said, “I opened the trash bag in the trunk, and saw maggots”!

Well, maggots don’t eat or live in Pizza! Maggots are found in meat, flesh of something. Such as a chicken that could have been in the trash bag. How about a dead mouse? Have you ever smelled a dead mouse….they stink! I’m sure the auto yard has lots of mice around. Perhaps one smelled the pizza, ate the baking soda and died, then rotted and stunk the car up!

The existence of maggots in the trash bag proves that their was rotten meat in the trash bag.

Was there a child in the trash bag? No! But there were maggots!

This proves there was meat rotting in the trash bag!

It was George Anthony who looked in the trash bag. The yard manager did not see any maggots in the trunk. They were in the bag where George looked, and this is where the rotting meat was.

This completely explains the smell in the trunk.

Maggots to the rescue!

Another area of questioning the defense might hammer on, is that NO normal person would know to bring Gas unless he knew the car had no gas! He had to know ahead of time! I guess George is just psychic! Who knew!

They need to ask George, “are you a psychic?”, “do you have special powers to see the future?”. Then finish, “you knew the car had run out of gas, and you knew this because Casey told you!”. “You are part of the cover up of your granddaughters accidental death, aren’t you”!

“Reasonable Doubt” – Casey Anthony Trial – Day 3

26 May

Proven Facts all leading to reasonable doubt:

* No way of determining cause of death to a certainty

* Bizarre actions by George Anthony in reporting gas cans to police when he knows his daughter uses the gas when she runs out

* No smell from car

* No attempt to keep people away from trunk of car

* Casey completely blocked the death from her mind in public afterwords leads a person to believe she has years of some sort of mental trauma and can compartmentalize things in her mind

* Meter Reader bizarre obsession

* All accounts say Casey was great loving mom and kind person

* The prosecutions burden of proof has not been met. The only thing they proved is the child died and there was a cover-up. Murder was not proved. Casey Anthony was only proved responsible for a cover-up of something. Could be an accident, could be murder. We do not know! None of the charges are for cover-up of something we do not know.

Closing Statement by the Defense:

This is the law. The law that you the jury must render your decision based on. Whether you like me, or like the prosecution attorneys, you must follow the law. And the law calls for complete knowledge of what happened. No reasonable doubt. That is the law. Nothing to do with me, the prosecution, the judge, our side bars, or anything. The prosecution wants so badly to answer for you to believe…….(fill it in)….but they can’t…..(fill it in)…

“REASONABLE DOUBT”…….we have given you 20? different reasonable doubt facts, Undisputed. Cont…..

All of this uncertainty leads to Not Guilty!

Injustice is such a horrible thing in life for people! Casey Anthony Trial, Defense Strategy

25 May

Today is day 2….

* On my my my, the boyfriend wants to say Casey Told him George raped, incest, admission! Why did the defense back off on this? Key! Will you bring it in on the Defense part of the trial? The prosecution brought “Secrets” up. Say to the boyfriend, don’t tell us the secret but did Casey tell you her secret? He already admitted it that she did and you, under restrained, moved on. Bring it back up! He is a hostile witness…but bring him around.

* 2 feet distace from the car with no smell….No, George was much further away. Why is this boyfriend a hostile witness? Because his “love” which he will not claim, is a woman with deep secrets, which she told to him…..yet he was not man enough to Not Be Part Of This! Sorry Pal, you were in love with girl with mentally disturbing secrets! This is why you didn’t speak to the defense! But be careful because this guy fudges the truth and can’t remember anything!

* Shovel guy…bring up the forensics on the shovel…nothing. You should have asked him if he knew the forensics proved nothing. No DNA, not Soil. Why is these even evidence?

* George….need to work on this as He is a Detective and knows how to be Cool and Jury brainwshing trained. Did he have jury training in Cop School? I’m sure he did. You did not talk about how he is schooled in how to according to the judge orders to be “no expression” which he is cop. Cops know how to how to..how to….Cops know how to everything! Boyfriend……my dad is taking care of this! Cop dad is taking care of this. He knows how. .

” Shot girls…Casie is really, really nice girl all shot girls say. Not bad mother. Amazing protector.

* Car Car Car Smell Smell Smell……fake claim by the prosecution! Keep keep proving this. Pin down the boyfriend over and over. 2 feet, F U dude…what 4 feet…previous testimony you can’t remember jack crap! Defense has to remind you of Everything! Look, lean your head back and envision a shovel, no a crime, no a gas can…..Can’t trust most but you can trust where he was and what he saw. This guy is your KEY TO INNOCENCE! He is the only one “THAT WAS THERE”! This guy is “fronting” his own pride of that he dated and loved ……..

* Call Incest lawyers to tell about the trauma….some on the news media pun-dents agree with you…

On the right course defense,,, but need to clean it up.

Hope this helps.

Casey is not guilty. Another society that we live in, media driven, injustice. But don’t say this to the jury.

Watching Casey Anthony Trial as though it were a TV Show! I’m a Peeping Tom!

25 May

It’s bizarre. Or should I say I’m bizarre?

I have watched the first 2 days of “The Casey Anthony Trial” as though I’m watching a TV show! I thought about this today, in how in Florida there is a girl, a young woman who is real and in real time, I am seeing her on TV like I’d be watching a TV show.

I can turn it off. I can go back to my “real life”. She can not. This is not a TV show. She is not able to take a phone call, do some work, go to the grocery store. This is her real life, yet, I assume millions just like me watch her as though she is the best episode of Seinfeld or Hawaii 5 O!

What does this say about our culture, our media, and myself as a person?

She is going to live or die. Wow! And I’m sitting here in/on my comfy chair watching this entire thing unfold! I watch with no comprehension of the emotion that she is going through. I go to sleep every night in a home. After InSession TV signs off it’s coverage, and the court adjourns for the the day, she goes back to a cell with bars, one little toilet, and only enough room to walk a few paces.

What right do I have to “intrude” upon her life? What right do I have to think I am in some way part of being able to judge her? What right do I have to think I know her?

I don’t! Suddenly I feel a bit dirty. I’m a “Peeping Tom” who is seeing things I have no right to see!

Casey Anthony Defense Strategy Preview – Or at least what it should be!

23 May


UPDATED STRATEGY
9:20pm, May 23’rd
____________________________

Admit it! Admit it all!

The strategy that the Casey Anthony defense should take should be as follows in opening statements:

1. The child died in an accident
2. The child was placed in the trunk, with tape to make it look like a kidnapping
3. The child was dumped in the woods
4. Casey tried to hide that an accident happened.

So what! It is not a crime.

Call no witnesses. Tell the jury you will not cross examine any of the prosecution witnesses because you concede it happened and is all true.

The only “evidence” that the prosecution has is that a child died.
Yes, she died.
Yes, she was put in the trunk
Yes, she was put in the woods
Yes, Casey tried to hide it
Agree with the prosecution, point by point, item by item. Yes, she did this, Yes she did that. Yes, yes, yes, yes, we agree with the prosecution. EXCEPT, they have it wrong in how Caylee died. She died like this, and it was an accident. Every time the prosecution calls a witness, stipulate that the defense agrees with why the witness was called and never let them testify! When the prosecution tries to show photos of the child’s body, find some way to agree, she’s dead. Take all of the prosecutions sensationalism away. No emotion for the jury. Calm, matter of fact, this is what happened approach. Make it a quick trial. So much has been beaten into the jury’s head about 8 weeks and their suffering, make it a 1 week trial. Agree, and stipulate prosecution witness testimony is agreed and never let any of them testify. Then depending on where you are, call 1 or 2, or none witnesses. The prosecution, and jury will be buckled! Everyone wants you to argue, if you argue, you lose!

Say, there is only 1 person in this world which knows with certainty, beyond a reason of any doubt, what happened! The prosecution doesn’t know. The media doesn’t know. Only Casey knows, and I am telling you in her words what happened.

The jury wants to hear what happened. Give it to them. Tell them. If the forensics can back up what you say happened, tell them. The prosecution will then shift gears and try to rebut how you say it happened, so be ready for this.

Give the jury a timeline. Use story boards like they did in the OJ case like “Vanaders Big Lies” board. Give the jury every blow by blow detail of the days leading up to the accident, how the accident happened, minute by minute details of the day the child died and how, time line of how she covered it up, her thoughts, fears, time line of every part of the time period! The jury will have no choice but to agree that it was a tragic accident! If you just leave it up for them to decide and take your word for it, then you lose or get hung jury. If you want innocence, you have to give them all the details. You can’t put her on the stand. But you can tell the jury yourself on her behalf.

The only thing Casey Anthony is guilty of, is trying to hide that her daughter died of an accident. With the time served already for the minor charges she will be free.

Remind the jury that the defendant doesn’t have to take the stand or even put on a defense. Tell them you are speaking on Casey’s behalf and she wants you to know what happened. She wants everyone to know what happened. Explain to them how crazy the media was and is. Explain to them why she covered it up (see my other blog below for this). Make everything matter of fact, no big deal. The prosecution is going to try and sensationalize their version. Make your version low key, no big deal, and simple matter of fact.

It’s brilliant! Take away the entire prosecutions case! Trial over in 1 week….Not Guilty!

Simple as that. The prosecution has no case other than a child is dead. Concede it. Not guilty!

I Was Once A Great Warrior! Superhero and Problem Solver to All!

21 May

I was once a great warrior! The problem with taking a warrior out of the war is that he is lost.

For as long as I can remember I was great in intense situations. Always the one who stepped up to take on the crises, the danger, the bully, the out of body situation, with a clear head and decisive action! I was good! I was the soldier, the leader who could identify “in slow motion” what was needed and decisively direct others and act myself in a swift way to a positive calm outcome!

I was a warrior! Superhero!

And with the few of us in life who have that metal edge, when moments of being not needed to save the world, called into action, “downtime”!…….we lose our edge! We fall into depression and self destruction. We isolate ourselves, for our former warrior lifestyle was fed by directing others to solve the task at hand, the crisis.

Without the crisis we are very disappointed in humanity. People are weak. People suck.

‘Rambo First Blood’ was all about this. “Back there I used to be responsible for dozens of the best men, and million dollar machinery, back here I am nothing”!

‘Apocalypse Now’, when Martin Sheen was drunk in his dirty little bedroom, and his higher ups came to find him is another good example of a warrior in down time!

‘Patton’, when George C. Scott said, “I’d be proud to lead you guys in battle, anytime, anywhere”!

I don’t have any “larger than life” media type credentials in my past which would distinguish me to someone who does not know me as a warrior, and someone who has “the edge” in life. Other than those that knew me and relied on me to solve their life problems. I was an athlete in High School and College and always won the game with a winning home run or winning sack of the quarterback. I was the one who people pulled into the bathroom at parties for me to solve some issue. I was the one when fights were about to break out would step in and take on or diffuse the aggressor no matter his size or the situation. After college I entered the business world, and I was always the one to tackle the largest, most stressful crisis or most difficult customer. I did the dirty work that no one else wanted to do. In life, I have been the one given the task to tell others their family member died. I have been the one to tell girlfriends and boyfriends, husbands and wives, their significant other doesn’t want them anymore. I have called CEO’s out of the blue and crashed Presidential candidate meetings and had discussions with world leaders and policy advisers of Israel and other middle eastern countries leaders. I have dated super-models, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition models, Ambassadors daughters, Kings granddaughters, Senators daughters, Professional sports legends daughters, and have lived life like few others!

It has been some time since I was in the “war”, and able to be me! Not a military war, but the war of life. It is like I was captured by the enemy and the enemy has kept me in solitary confinement!

There is no conclusion to the blog post as the journey is not over which only comes in death. Maybe a “war” will rear it’s ugly head and I’ll be called back in action! I can only wish not! For, I believe in the good. The good in people and all humanity. But, I know differently. People are bad for the most part. I wish it were different. Those that have, want more. Those that have not, want more. It is a very ugly want, take, want, take world. I don’t want to be part of it. But I am!

Casey Anthony Trial – I’M NOT GUILTY! In her own words!

20 May

“My name is Casey Anthony. I am writing this from jail without the knowledge of my attorneys. Today is the weekend of of May 21’st, 2011. My trial is in the middle of jury selection and my trial is scheduled to start next week.”

“It is extremely painful for me to write this true account of what happened to my dear Caylee but I feel I must set the record straight as only I can do! It is time that the truth be known and the world know what happened. I am not a murderer, a monster, a psychopath, as most in the media, law enforcement, and our legal system has tried to portrait me!”

THE FOLLOWING AND ABOVE IS AN ACCOUNT OF ONE POSSIBLE VERSION OF WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED IN THE CASEY ANTHONY TRIAL OF THE DEATH OF HER 2 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CAYLEE ANTHONY!

THIS ACCOUNT IS PURELY FICTIONAL AND WRITTEN ONLY TO CREATE DIALOGUE IN THE HOPE OF FINDING THE TRUTH OF WHAT HAPPENED!

I HAVE WRITTEN THIS BLOG POST IN, FIRST PERSON NARRATIVE, IN CASEY ANTHONY’S VOICE, AS I SEE WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED, IN HER OWN WORDS!
________________________

Hi Everyone,

My name is Casey Anthony. I am writing this from jail without the knowledge of my attorneys. Today is the weekend of of May 21’st, 2011. My trial is in the middle of jury selection and my trial is scheduled to start next week.

I am accused of killing my 2 year old daughter, the love of my life and my everything.

It is extremely painful for me to write this true account of what happened to my dear Caylee but I feel I must set the record straight as only I can do! It is time that the truth be known and the world know what happened. I am not a murderer, a monster, a psychopath, as most in the media, law enforcement, and our legal system has tried to portrait me!

I am the victim of abusive parents resulting in very, very poor judgment on my part.

So, first off, I am very very sorry for everyone that I have caused hurt to effecting their lives. Oh god, if I could go back and and make better decisions at that time, I would! Believe me, I am not afraid to be sentenced to death if only to make up for hurting others. I did not kill my child. However, I did kill all those I love by my poor choices, my family, my friends, and so many others in that have come into my life in the last few years, and recently that I owe so much gratitude and sorriness too! I am sorry!

Ok, where to start…….I did not kill my daughter, Caylee Anthony! I loved my daughter more than anything in the world and would never hurt her in any way! I was her momma! Her protector! She was my everything, regardless of how the media has portrayed me……..it is not true! I love, and loved my daughter, (god rest her soul)!

I grew up in a very suffocating home environment. From my earliest memories my mother always was there to be the amazing mom and family leader. She took care of everything in the home. A rock. A pillar of strength and someone that I so wanted to be like when I grew up. My mom is my hero! If only in life I could have grown up with her wisdom, knowing what to do, her strength, 6’th sense and intuition. But I did not. Mom always had a way of knowing what to do. Mom always had and has some sort of mystic powers to always come out on top! I am not her. This pains me greatly for, for all of my life I have tried to make her proud of me! Every child in life wants nothing else but to make their parents proud of them. Especially the dominant parent! I love my mom. I love my mom! But, in her love for our family she suffocated me in my developmental process! I never was given the chance to fail! Everything was done for me! A moms love which I so love her for, but it did not give me the mental, growing, maturity that most have in life. I was protected, decisions made for me, and never allowed to grow into my own person!

People say, I am a 20 something adult , but I am not! I am still the 16 year old girl wanting desperately to find my own self! However, I can not! My mother has controlled my entire life, and she will continue to control my entire life as I will always seek her approval. Even from jail.. I was never given the chance to develop into my own self! I am a prisoner to my mom!

So, now I have committed some crime they say! No, I did not! I loved my daughter! This hurts me so much, and to talk to my mom about what happened was impossible for me to do! Telling her what happened would hurt me so much and this is why I could not do it and so I tried to hide Caylee’s death! I just couldn’t deal with it! The shame of failing, again, in my mothers eyes! Oh the shame and disappointment in her eyes…again!

I am not going to say how my dear Caylee died, my love and daughter as we are in trial, but will say it was an accident. She died of an accident! Things happen to kids that are out of our control. How many kids run behind the car and get hit! How many kids get under the sink and drink something they should not! How many kids drown in the pool, a bucket, or even suffocate on a bag or somehow get entangled in a cord. Why does everyone automatically assume I killed my child! I did not! It was an accident that yes, as a mother I should have been there to keep her safe, but I was not. All mothers know that you can’t 100% of the time have your kids in your arms! Kids will be kids and run around. My dear Caylee died from a very common household accident that occur almost daily to all mothers and fathers. The exact manner of her death doesn’t matter. She is dead!

When I found Caylee dead, I was in shock! My baby was dead and I didn’t know what to do! The pain was unbearable to me. No one understands this. Mom doesn’t understand as I could not tell her what happened. It was an accident but she’d blame me! Once again! So, I just sat there and cried. Everyone will blame me for this, I thought to myself, so I did nothing.

I wrapped Caylee’s body up in a blanket and for a few days I did not leave the apartment, holding her, and crying. I was beside myself and not thinking clearly. What was I going to do? Oh god, help me!

Over the next month I tried to live life as though nothing happened. I had to go out in public and act as though everything was normal. At a certain point deterioration of Caylee’s body started and I had to move her to the truck of my car. I had no where else to put her as the smell was getting strong. My plan was to find a pretty place to bury her, but as people started to notice that Caylee was not around I decided that I would have to fake a kidnapping. This is the point where everything started happening so quick that I couldn’t keep track of what I told to who. I could see this was going to be a problem. So, I took some tape and make it look like a kidnapping. I put her in a trash bag and dumped her in the woods to appear like someone took her. I do not know how the meter reader gentleman, Roy Kronk, knew where she was. He must have seen me because it is not a coincidence that he knew where Caylee’s body was.

I am very sorry for just not telling everyone that she died of an accident but I could not face my mother’s disappointment in me.

George is abusive to my mom Cindy, especially when it comes to me! He resents that he had to be a part of Caylee’s life. But my mom defends me with him, as she is my mom and will always be on my side. George is an alcoholic. Former law enforcement officer. Mom is strong but with him is weak. So she gets pressure from him about me and she can be mean to me. I understand this now in hind-site. George was giving my mom sh*t about them taking care of Caylee and me being irresponsible in his opinion. He never did really like me. I never really did like him. So mom was in the middle! I needed help from mom with baby care things as I could not afford myself and Caylee. Our apartment had rent due each month, food, and all that goes into being an independent woman and mother.

So that is the background of my life and what happened. I never really got a chance to develop into a woman or person to make my own decisions. My mom married a very controlling person, which gave her constant grief in her relationship with me. He said, I should be cut off, but mom loved me. Mom and my relationship was always very stressed as I was never good enough in her eyes.

I am crying as I write this now, because I tried so hard to be a great mother to Caylee. I was a great mother to Caylee! So, to all of you who listen to all the news media that I abandoned my daughter, I am not a bad mother! My mom was so critical of me. Everything I did was wrong. I was a bad mother, no matter what in my mom’s eyes. No matter what I did was wrong in her eyes. I think this is the greatest factor in what happened after Caylee’s death.

George tried to kill himself. I want to feel responsible for this but can not. I love my mom. I support my mom even though her love figures into this. But this whole awfulness is my responsibility. I have accepted this.

So, no more words, my lawyers will hate me for this post…but I needed to say what happened!

I know I will be in jail forever, but I should not be. It was an accident. My Caylee is gone and so I give up. My family is gone. Everyone hates me. It is okay, I am numb!

Sincerely,

Casey

Usama bin Laden Captured Alive, Not Dead!

3 May

I’m not buying the BS that the US government is spewing out about the so called killing of Usama Bin Laden. And the news media is doing their best to get a great story! Anderson Cooper, CNN, just gave a very detailed account repeating the government misinformation.

Usama had a gun.
Usama used a woman as a shield.
A woman charged the Seals.
Usama reached for a gun.
There was a firefight but no bullet holes anywhere.
A woman was killed.
A woman was shot in the leg.

Come on guys, get your story straight beforehand!

Think about it. The Navy Seals, arrive inside the house, no guards, nobody shooting at them. 24, Seal Team 6, storm the house in the middle of the night. Usama and family are asleep, no shoes, no clothes, children around, and suddenly they are surrounded by heavily armed US armed forces pointing Ooozies at them!

Do you really think they put a slug in Usama’s head? Not a chance! They put a black bag over his head and wisked him into the helicopter!

Usama is now soaking up the sun at Guantanamo Bay prison where they are preparing the waterboarding table! The US is going to extract as much information out of him as they can for years and years!

The US government can not tell the world Usama bin Laden is alive. The American public would demand a trial. Foreign governments would claim jurisdiction and want him back. There would be terrorists attacks for years and years each and every time something happens in a Usama trial. Where would you try him? The US public would want him tried in New York City. He’d be entitled to defend himself in a trial if he wanted. He’d be sentenced to death and then where do you bury him? It would be a complete mess!

So, what do you do? You tell the world he was shot in the face and they can’t show the photo. You tell the world his body was dumped into the ocean never to be found! You tell the world you have eliminated Usama bin Laden!

Well, I’m not buying it! Usama bin Laden is alive and well in US custody!
