It would explain a lot, but she's such a pathological liar it's very difficult to prove.
...But the most fascinating question has nothing to do with Scientology’s beliefs: Why is Scientology tax exempt? (And should it, perhaps, not be?)
The best way to begin answering this is to first puncture a popular misconception. People often conflate recognition as a religion and recognition as a tax exempt § 501(c)(3) entity as being effectively the same thing. But the IRS does not make determinations of an entity’s religiosity. In fact, the IRS is constitutionally prohibited from even entertaining the question. Whether Scientology is or is not a religion is thus a red herring–a philosophical as opposed to legal question, far outside the scope of the tax exemption question....

As much as I respect JA, one of my take-aways from his book was that he seemed not very emotionally astute, as in, I think he pretty frequently misread/didn't get emotional dynamics.
Even if his take on the Ants was accurate (which I doubt), what would be the surprise? One of the hallmarks of sociopathy is precisely the ability to seem normal and pleasant, to even seem exceptionally charming, and families circling the wagons have a huge investment in putting a mask of normalcy on, to disguise what is anything but.
I've said here before that I think CA abused FCA emotionally. It is clear to me, anyway, that FCA returned that abuse in equal or greater measure, certainly by the time Caylee came into the world.
Too much chicken and egg in that mother-daughter dynamic to ever figure out who triggered what when, IMO, much less to tease out what if any neurological defects FCA started out with from birth.
With all due respect to you, Bayou, I guess I don't understand why you think George abused FCA. I can understand wanting to believe that, because then FCA's actions can at least be understood, if not excused. I believed that the abuse must be so myself when I first began following the case, but many hours into reading the evidence completely changed my mind. Hopefully it is not too off-topic to ask you-- what in the evidence makes you think it so?
My opinion is that it is highly likely he abused her. Why do I feel this way? Well, primarily because of his deceitful nature, just like hers, his sexual promiscuity, just like hers, his conversations with her that seem more like a lover, than a father, (hello beautiful), his not having many or any adult male friends. A laundry list of things I observed (body language).
Anyone and everyone can disagree, and I freely admit that this is just my simple gut feeling and opinion, nevertheless, there it is. It proves nothing and is not meant to do so.
If anyone is offended, I apologize. That was not my intent.
Whatever happened in the past, that's their problem-I still want an explaination on what exactly happened to Caylee.
You know, it finally dawned on me why this book is being promoted. FCA needs money, I believe she's going to get a % of something, especially if there are photos of Caylee and her in there, she may have been writing some book on her own, but realize she won't be able to release anything until all these lawsuits are over and done with-Wouldn't her 5th's fall by the wayside if her book came out now or at anytime prior to any of these lawsuits? Yep, I sure think so! Good, no book or interviews for YEARS.

For what it's worth, I agree with how Bayouland feels about FCA- no facts just my gut instincts and intuition. I have mulled this over for years now! Ugh!
For some reason, I would believe Lee abused/sexually Casey more than I would believe George would? Lee has always given me the creeps and he sure felt guilty about something during the memorial, IMO. We all know he wasn't talking about Caylee when he said CMA! He was talking about Casey!
Justice for Trayvon
I think this pool story is all he has and I just bet he decided to go with it just about the same time CA had the 'realization' that weeks prior , there was no nanny as she stated in court.
Imo, by him stating this, not only 'helped' his client set the stage for the most plausable excuse, but it also 'helped' her parents. Still the Question-Why isn't there any law as to how and where Caylee was found? Yes, she was abandoned in the most henous way possible.
Off topic, but yesterday I walked in and DH was watching one of those 'talk/shock' shows and they had a family on where the father was/is having supposed incestual relations with his own daughter and has for years. Now I know those shows are somewhat staged, but still...it was sickening to think that somebody can get on tv, proud as can be and state there's nothing wrong with doing this-OMG! I was waiting for the police to haul away the entire family or at least have an update as to what happened afterwards. Even if it was just done for show, it was deplorable. People just can't get away with doing these things, can they? Or is there some new rule that as long as they consent, nothing can be done to punish? I don't think so.
Thread is now WAY off topic. Locking for clean up later. Will reopen when the book is released.
Never interrupt your opponent when they are making a mistake.
