After watching the Defense’s opening statement in the Casey Anthony case, What ever happened to Personal Responsibility? Too many people use excuses to try to get out of paying the price for their crimes or mistakes. Just because you had a bad childhood, were abused, your parents didn’t treat you right, or any other number or excuses, that’s no reason to not be punished. Just man up and admit your mistakes. Cover ups usually get you in more trouble then the original action. There are lots of people who have had bad things happen to them and don’t use it as a cruch!

With the arrest of now former IMF President Dominique Strauss-Kahn in New York this week on rape charges, it confirms the statement that no man is above the law. No matter how rich you are, what political position you hold, or what other station in life you hold, the law is the law! You do the crime, no amount of money or fame should make you immune from prosecution. On the flip side, just because you’re poor does not mean that you can’t have legal help if you’re accused of a crime.

This week begins the Casey Anthony trial. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this case, Casey Anthony is a Florida woman on trial for the 2008 murder of her 2 year old daughter Caylee. Casey has a lot of things going against her. First, she waited 1 month before she told anyone that Caylee was missing. Second, She is a total liar. She came up with this story that the Nanny was the kidnapper, and a lot of other falsehoods. Also, she is a thief, having swiped money from both her Grandmother and her best friend. And third, she has as a lawyer a guy who is only looking for publicity, not someone you want representing you in a death penalty case. But, he’ll be a miracle worker if he can pull it out. Even though she’s considered innocent until proven otherwise, if this isn’t a slam dunk case, what is? Though that’s what they said about OJ…..

You gotta give props to everyone involved in the operation to get Osama. From the President who authorized it, to the Intel agents who tracked him down and got confirmation that it was Bin Laden, to the Navy SEALS that carried out the strike. The 2 amazing things where that secrecy was totally maintained until after the deed was done, and that the only American loss was a copter. It’s good that Bin Laden is dead, but vigilance needs to be maintained. There are still terrorists out there gunning for us, and Al Quaida will be out for revenge because of the loss of their leader. We can’t let our guard down one bit!
