“While I agree the original comment was odd (she can't exactly help being born to her parents), getting rich and living in a mansion takes more than intelligence and hard work. There is a little luck involved.”

“Not to add to the speculation, but the first thing I thought in this video was that she looks like she is on ecstasy. The movements, the rapid chewing of gum, her eyes keep going up to the ceiling. It was the first thing that came to mind... I've been around that scene and there are some distinct behaviors that you spot.”

“How about we all take a little responsibility for this situation.

I think people put entirely TOO much stock into the position of the presidency. I don't care what side of the political fence you're on, there are too many players in corporate America and Washington for everything to be boiled down so simply as "the president's fault." VAST oversimplification and shows me how little people know about the way things really work in this country.”

“"There is some data that suggests that the American people are sensing the nation's economic trouble. As of June 30th, Gallup's economic confidence of Americans index was pegged at -32, down from its Recovery high of -16 in February"

Are people really this... to put it lightly, blindly optimistic? I hope it's just the wording and interpretation of this article an the poll, but I honestly don't understand how someone could see what has been going on for YEARS as anything but a very serious and scary situation. I guess not all people are reading gloom and doom news all day, but still... how do most people not know what kind of situation we're in?! That alone speaks volumes!”

“No worries, I took it as such :)

Re: income sensitive repayment.

Did that.

Still can't pay all my bills AND my rent. I have to pick and choose, and my credit goes down the drain in the meantime. 3 part-time jobs (NO one, and I mean NO ONE will hire full-time anymore) and I'm toying with getting a 4th and giving up sleep altogether in exchange.”

“I think a story about a dad falling to his death in front of his son is enough of a powerful reminder. Maybe it's just me, but I think photographing someone's last moment alive and putting it up for public consumption is just disrespectful. For some reason, this especially bothers me.”

pammiethekid on Jul 9, 2011 at 11:53:22

“A story should be enough of a reminder, but for whatever reason, a picture is still worth a thousand words. I hear you though. I often think news becomes creepy when it seems to be other people's death as entertainment.”

“Can I also add, it seems to me that with it being a "buyer's market", for the younger demographic it's less about intelligence and qualifications and more about who you know and what you look like, especially as a female.”

“It is ALL about where you went to school. Many companies won't even look at your resume if theydon't recognize the school (and there are 3000+ colleges in the U.S. hundreds of good ones where you can get an equal level of education, and only 30 or so that everyone knows)”

“Casey is a sociopath. She has learned nothing from this other than she's a good liar and what she did worked. I would not be the least bit surprised to see her continue to have run-ins with the law or even commit another homicide one day. People like this don't learn their lesson. She isn't attributing this verdict to dumb luck, she considers herself above the law. She'll get hers one day. Look at OJ, you'd think after what he went through he'd stay far away from any shady activities. Van de Sloot (Natalee Holloway)... look at him now, sitting in jail for ANOTHER girl's murder. Let people with no souls get away with what they have done and they will strike again. Bet on it.”

“I completely agree. F + F. Call me a snob, an elitist, what have you, I have lost nearly ALL faith in the general American public. Just take a look at the general state of everything to get an idea the average IQ. If a lawyer needs a JD and license to represent someone, then a jury should have similar qualifications.”

lilipilicious on Jul 8, 2011 at 22:16:42

“I agree with you. I am tired of apologizing for holding education and professionalism in high regard and for letting experts and pros take care of things instead of the stupid public. Seriously. I mean really, people wouldnt let a layman represent them as attorney, why should they let unprofessional, unknowing uneducated people who know nothing of the matter make a DECISION? It is bizarre. No one ever stops to question this very rule and thinks it is the best in the world, but really, it isnt. There is nothing great about letting non professionals who know nothing make life and death decisions.”

IamYourDrillThrall on Jul 8, 2011 at 21:44:17

“The average I.Q is 100. Do you have any idea how STUPID one has to be to score 100 on an I.Q test? (Hint: Pretty darned stupid.)

I don't know enough about the jury system to make a broadbased comment, but it does seem as this one really missed the mark. I would have more respect for their decision to acquit if they had taken, say, a week, to go over the evidence. Maybe even ask to have some of the testimony read back to them. Ask a question or two. But...10 hours? Seriously?

I sat on a grand jury 25 years ago...an open and shut case of rape and attempted murder. This is before DNA was used in courtrooms....but the evidence was overwhelming, and we took 5 full days to reach a guilty verdict.

Caylee deserved more than 10 hours of deliberation.”

“Tactless and unnecessary would be a photo of him bleeding on the ground. But this photo of his over-reach and his fall might be powerful incentive to all who see it to never make the same mistake.”
