    Seismologist on trial in Italy

    Right now - there is a seismologist on trial in Italy for not PREDICTING an earthquake.

    It SURE makes me wonder about Amanda Knox..... (cough - I thought she was innocent all along!)

    Have the italians been eating baguettes? WTH is up with this?

    Is Berlusconi THAT desperate for a deflection of attention?

    Honestly, I don't undertand.

    That is absurd, I guess someone has to be accountable! As long as it makes people look the other way! I feel that Knox may have been railroaded to hide the inadequacy of the Italian government!
    I hope all is well Marc! Hope we see many more of your posts!
    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    Well Miss Knox has been set free! It would be nice to see many truths coming out!

    Yay! I hear the Italian prosecutors will appeal. America will NEVER extradite her imho.

    The next person that needs to be set free is Schapelle Corby.... before she DIES in this living hell.

    The Australian Government and ALL OTHER WORLD POWERS should be ashamed.

    Bring on global warming - Indonesia deserves it.
