I sometimes wonder what the other players in the Jackson trial would look like if you could see into their souls, and my strong hunch is they'd make Jackson look a lot less "freaky" by comparison.
For example, all these witnesses are now testifying they either saw Jackson molest small boys, or they saw or heard evidence of such an act. The most basic moral problem is that none of these people went to the police with what they witnessed at the time of the alleged incidents. Forget the legality of the matter: These were small, defenseless boys, and these otherwise normal-looking people taking the stand in the Jackson trial are admitting they didn't do anything about it at the time the crimes were witnessed. Why?
Well, as is true with most U.S. citizens today, these scum-of-the-earth cowards didn't want to jeopardize their employment with the golden egg-laying Michael Jackson at the time, so they remained silent while these alleged molestations repeatedly occurred to those defenseless boys. Some claimed nobody would take their testimony seriously where a big pop-star like Michael Jackson was concerned, but that's not a credible excuse, especially after it was widely reported ten years ago that Jackson paid off the family of another molestee to the tune of $20 million dollars, and even earlier than that he had parted with $2.1 million dollars to yet another alleged victim.
Oh, and the parents who now seem so distraught that their boys were sexually victimized by Jackson? -- now there's a performance you need to see. Look, it doesn't take a genius to understand what they did and why they did it. They knew about the stories! Who didn't? What made Jackson different from all the other homosexual molesters out there is that he's rich. He's not just comfy: Jackson is or was rich beyond most people's imagination. If Jackson is a homosexual pedophile, then he has a sexual compulsion that is extremely difficult to suppress and very, very illegal. What other person could make a better target? How about Kobe Bryant?? Jackson may be a molester of small boys for whatever the reason, but when you look past his weakness to the parents who quite literally sacrificed their own little boys to Molech in return for a little bit of money, who should really be on trial here?
If I know you're a wealthy alcoholic and I can get several million dollars of yours if I can get you to take just one little drink, I'm going to make alcohol available to you. In fact. I'm going to make you think you're completely safe when you sneak that little drink. These parents actually took their little boys to see Michael Jackson and let them stay overnight with him! All this talk about how Michael was so good to their little boys and how he lured them and how he set out to seduce them with pleasure, games and booze just doesn't complete the picture. It's like today's parents moaning that their 16 year-old daughter got pregnant, when they didn't have a clue where their daughter was or what she was doing most of the time! Well in this case, the equivalent would be acting as your daughter's pimp on Grand Avenue, but the return on investment is better.
What is most horrifying is that all these corrupted and cowardly players represent an accurate cross-section of America today.
I just watched, "Waco: The Rules of Engagement" on television. Every evil act leading to that avoidable tragedy was committed by employees of the federal government, yet the craven cowards among us still nance around and insist the Branch Davidians should not have shot back when attacked. Our elected representatives asked great questions and made good speeches, but when it came time to stand up and make the guilty accountable, there wasn't a straight backbone in all of Congress. So why did so many Americans vote to keep those cowards in office? Obviously, 80 barbecued members of a church congregation, including 20 little children, was not enough to outweigh the pork and other favors those same representatives bestowed annually on their constituents.
Then there is Michael New, who was illegally ordered to wear a U.N. uniform while serving in our armed forces. He was the only soldier to refuse, and he was convicted in a kangaroo court-martial and thrown out of the Army with a dishonorable discharge. His case is still wending its way through our judicial system. Not one of his fellow soldiers stood with him on an issue they all knew or should have known was illegal.
But what I've learned from our "Volunteer Army" recruits and officers is two-fold: They will follow any illegal order out of cowardice and then blame the person who gave the order; and they don't have a clue what is written in the Constitution or what it means. They don't have 1/10th the character or integrity of our citizens who fought in WWII, and that explains why we are seeing and hearing so many reports of torture, brutality and murder committed by our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. The perps know the general cowardice of the other soldiers will serve to hide their crimes, so it can be safely estimated that for every report made, hundreds go unreported. You have to be more than a little naive to believe a "First Time Offender" means that is the first time the criminal committed a crime. No, it just means it's the first time he got caught. The same principle applies to the reports coming out of Abu Ghraib and elsewhere, and I just can't wait to see what these servicemen are going to do when they return to the streets of America. You ain't seen nothin' yet!
The average military recruit of today takes the oath for that little bit of money and promise of future advantage, but he or she doesn't know what branch of government is authorized to declare war, even though they might end up fighting one! They have no understanding that they are swearing an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and not necessarily to the government of the United States. That's how pathetic the average military recruit of today is, and that is why I am absolutely confident that those same soldiers will fire on American citizens if they are told the citizens are "Domestic Enemies" of the United States. It won't matter that those "Domestic Enemies" are trying to restore constitutional compliance or what the reason is. These American soldiers will kill their fellow citizens when the order is given, because they are too cowardly to refuse to obey any order, whether it might be illegal or not.
We might have a mighty army and a strong government for now, but the moral backbone of this nation has turned to jelly. A guy just wrote to me today to say I'm in agony and angry over the Terri Schiavo slow starvation, dehydration and murder, and since Terri is "gone", I'm just doing myself harm thinking about it. The man is a cold-blooded sociopath, lacking all the normal human qualities of compassion and empathy, so he didn't and couldn't understand that my first reaction to what was done to Terri Schiavo was pure fear and horror of what a growing segment of our society is now emotionally capable of. Today's America is like living a version of the "Body Snatchers", the movie where aliens were taking over the world by taking over human bodies, and the remaining humans had to hide their humanity from the others because nobody knew for sure who was still human or not. These monsters among us don't even resemble the image of God; in fact they manifest themselves as exactly the opposite.
Many years ago, a college research experiment was conducted very slyly indeed. A "volunteer" was asked to sit behind a one-way mirror and push a button every time the "subject", who was strapped to the chair on the other side of the mirror, gave an incorrect answer to questions given him or her. Pushing the button gave the "subject" an electrical shock, the "volunteer" was told, and the experiment would reveal whether such "conditioning" would make the "subject" answer the questions more carefully.
In fact, the "volunteers" were the subjects. The alleged "subject" heard a buzzer go off everytime the "volunteer" pushed the button and began to writhe in the chair as if in excruciating pain. Some of those "volunteers" really got into it and pushed the button unnecessarily or excessively time after time, but their numbers back 30-40 years ago were still very suppressed. Based upon the overall reaction to the Terri Schiavo torture, including those who blindly insisted Terri had mush for brains and couldn't feel it anyway, I'll bet if the same research study were conducted today, close to 50% of all Americans have devolved into at least some level of sociopath thinking and behavior.
Just look at how many self-described "Christian" people voted for Bush when it was more than obvious his lies and leadership had caused us to unnecessarily kill -- KILL! -- 100,000 non-combatant Iraqis -- and counting. If you get into their heads, you'll learn they don't truly consider "Iraqis" the same species as they are, just as the German people were conditioned to believe Jews were subhuman and therefore perfectly legal to exterminate.
So don't worry about the freak sitting at the defense table; those who are the most destructive to our once great and moral nation are many of the ones testifying against him. Good or bad, the problem is they all look alike, but today there are a lot more of them.
