Our Grand Children are victims of;

"Protect the "system" at all costs. The "system" is the only ultimate sacred cow - not any particular law or constitution, but only "the system." Because, ultimately, it is the system which makes certain that the individuals functioning within it - from judges to lawyers, to prosecutors, to politicians, to businessmen - have their places and positions, and opportunities and pecking order, and future."

In 1696, England first used the legal principle of parens patriae, which gave the royal crown care of "charities, infants, idiots, and lunatics returned to the chancery." This principal of parens patriae has been identified as the statutory basis for U.S. governmental intervention in families' child rearing practices.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Preamble of the original "organic" Constitution

"We hold these truths to be self-evident. That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."

Visit with the kids 10/14

From Mary Ann's notes:

[M] and [A] ate up the apples we brought in like there was no tomorrow. They drank their juice like they hadn't had any for awhile. When [M] and [A] slowed down on eating their apples, that was when [L] ate her apples.
[L's] eyes seemed dilated and she seemed kind of out of it when we first arrived. When they all left, Uncle Bob (foster care) told them to all hold hands. Amy (social worker) said they all grabbed her hand.
None of them seemed to have gained any weight back since they were taken from us. [L] has put up a wall around herself. She is not the same little girl who left us. [M] and [A] seemed a little resigned, but were a little more responsive than the last visit.
The spirit of these children have been smashed and shattered.


[M] was happy with the juice. [L] playing patty cake with gramma.

[L] is sad. She wants to come home.

We got them to horse around.

[A] would not let go of the pictures we gave her.

[M] had a picture. She wanted it back.

Drinking [L's] juice too.
