    Im starting to wonder if the Anthony trial is ever going to begin. Three years of legal wrangling and still we wait.They only lacked 3 jurors on Monday. If she had any sense she would take a plea rather than take her chances with the death penalty. Then again, no one has ever accused Casey Anthony of being a smart girl.

    @Riff Raff, don't talk like that about Casey. She's a wonderful girl and I love her. Doesn't matter if she's a murderer, I still think she's gorgeous.

    I wrote to the "Justiceforcaylee" website asking them if they were a nonprofit and if so how much of a percentage did they give to charity. I also said that I would gladly donate money if they were not trying to make money off a dead girl. I have yet to get a response, not that I expect one.

    Without a just and equitable resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict , any rhetoric reg Middle East is meaning less.
    To speak of the rights of people, human dignity and freedom in the Middle East and not speak about the legitimate rights of the oppressed people of Palestine is bigotry and hollow.

    The myth about our concerns for Israel's security has to be revisited.
    With 200 nuclear war heads, more than that of a world super power Britian, cruise missile equipped submarines, 100 land based missile launchers, 200 cruise missiles, Iron Dome Mobile Missile Defence System, the fiirst country to get our state of the art combat F-35s and one of the deadliest spy agencies in the world, Israel is the super power in that region. What other security do that need.

    We're on the edge of a budget crisis and we're giving 16 billion in aid to the Pakistani's and a billion debt forgiveness to the Egyptians. Something really smells.

    Not entirely correct @txkboy
    Under Kruger- Luger-Berman law 7.5 billion in aid was approved for Pakistan over 5 years. They have hardly received $ 300 million.
    The aid to Egypt to keep the regime of the dictator Mubarak propped up was 1 billion dollars a year.
    We are however doling out $ 6 billion every year to Israel which is just the announced part of the aid. According to the Washigton Report on Middle East, so far we have given 116 billion dollars to Israel. The hidden aid in billions is extra.

    People wake up....O'Bama is destroying the world, yes, the world as we knew it. He's throwing our allies under the bus. He, in his speech today has in essence given his backing to the radical mideast factions that want to destroy the Jews and Christians. If he is such an avid supporter of such beliefs, then let him pack up and go be their leader. This man is insane. Let's make sure he doesn't get re-elected.God save America.

      Trish, We must have listened to 2 different President Barack Obama'. I think the sky is falling tea Party people do not even believe your hyp anymore. He never said any such thing about backing radicals.He said back the people on the govenment they want to have. You cannot force democracy, but let it come to the people who want it and we will support them, it may not always be what we want and how we want it, but the people who desire it will get our help. I will not call on God but my fellow americans to at least listen and make fair assessments on truth and not fiction.

      Trish: Stop your silliness and fear mongering. You’re being toooooooo itchy. When was the last time you had your yeast infestation checked? Yea right, Pres. Obama is still hiding his Muslim Birth certificate; yea right, that didn't work. Pres. Obama is a hidden terrorist in the White House; yea right, that didn't work. He took out the most evil human being on earth aka, Osama bin Laden to the bottom of the deepest ocean. Now what? Get your stinky maggot infestation checked. It's over powering.
      Whew! Some stench!
