Hmmm. I posted the first few lines from a story, but not very much. Did that get zapped, or did I hit the wrong button? I posted part of the AP story because the Earthlink URL wasn't a stable one to link to. But here is the Google News page with Elizabeth Smart stories galore. I don't know if this is a stable URL either, but it should last for a couple of days at least.

The media had a 'kidnapping of the week' assembly line running back when she disappeared. And now it becomes obvious why. Her family is demanding a nationwide 'Amber Alert' system...'for the children', of course. What crap. Read some of the stories at the link below and then reflect on how you're being manipulated by the media into accepting more govt control over your life. Why doesn't the media focus on the stories at the link below?...because you have to feel 'close' to a 'victim' so they can go nationwide with a surveillance system. Your televisions are brain control devices, and you are being manipulated. Wake up:

Millions of Liz Smarts you never hear about

And don't forget what's waiting in the wings...just waiting for the right moment to become law:

Senate Bill 89

"To provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES..."

When the Bush/CIA monster starts killing Americans again, your daughters and grandaughters, and even you, lady, will be called upon to serve your country 'for other purposes'. Legalized prostitution. And while your grandaughter is laid out on her back serving her country, you'll be under the watchful eye of FEMA's Amber Alert system because...well, Liz Smart DESERVES it, dammit.

Liz Smart's legacy:

The Amber Alert system will be installed throughout America 'for kidnapped children', but then it will 'dawn' on govt officials that it could be used for other purposes. The system as it is now designed will allow FEMA to take over all television and radio stations and direct 'urgent' messages at you. 'Terrorist Alerts' will become commonplace. All TV's less than 5 years old also contain transmitting ability, so if you turn your TV off during an Amber Alert, you will be visited by police wanting to know why. Telephones will be assigned certain ring patterns, and if you fail to answer or hang up on the govts pre-recorded messages, you will receive a visit from the police or your neighborhood Homeland Security chief wanting to know why.

This technology is already here, folks. Just waiting to be utilized. For the past ten years the US govt has been trying to force the issue, and now they're using a kid to try to set up a total propaganda network. And they're serious about voting on it now, since Liz was found on cue. You'd better get in touch with congress or you'll be getting Big Brother messages at 2AM before long.

And you thought this 'kidnapping' was all about some hairy guy...'don't know yet if he raped her'. Geez. Some of you are gonna make first-rate 'neighborhood watch' commandants. Especially you, Spew. Go look at how DynCorp trades in child sex slaves.

I'm happy that Elizabeth Smart and her family are reunited. Now, let's drop it. Our society is manipulated into demanding every last scrap and tidbit of salacious detail. It's not easy to be a parent, it's not easy to be 14 years old, life itself is not easy. Surely we are willing now to call off the media and let that family get on with their lives, which, thankfully, they have another chance at.

Damn, they got their hooks into you, Ebbie. Get the suds out of your brains. The girl is acting as goofy as the brainwashed Tim McVeigh did. Someone screwed with her brain, and now the govt is trying to use her as a posterchild to initiate a national grid of 'alerts'. It's a set-up. Did you read about the thousands that DynCorp whores out around the world? You want to drop that, too? It's not easy being human, so let's just let the pimpdaddygovt take care of us. Boo hoo hoo. Sure they plan to track my every move with high-technology, but at least Liz Smart is safe. Goofy as hell from the govt brainwashing, but she's safe, so bring on the tracking grid and hand me another tissue.

I think the news media by itself did a pretty good job of issuing a "national alert."

And now they'll milk it for every scrap of drama they possibly can. I imagine there will be a movie and/or a book in the works pretty soon.

Something I thought was interesting... they interviewed the people who made the 911 call. Now, I suppose that's not really weird in and of itself, but had I been the person who made the call, I would have refused the interview, on the grounds that I had done nothing heroic, only what was right. That's just me, though. Others may feel differently.

The news media ("News" is often in the "Entertainment" division these days) does whatever it takes to sell ads, and if they can do a good service along the way more power to them. For real news, the News Hour on PBS is pretty good, and Nightline.

Ms. Smart is unfortunately now a Public Figure of sorts, made that way as a consequence of her family's desperate search. Until she's 18 the media won't be able to touch her too much, but after that, she's on her own. Enquirer and Penthouse will be knocking on her door and pawing through her trash.

What she said to the police when they first found her ("you think I'm the girl who ran away") sounds like she was working her way through the verbage put in place for her to use by her abductors. Did they convince her that she really was a runaway? And she had a better family now? I don't give any credibility to that remark--it is probably like the silly stuff one says when waking from a nightmare. (She's from a staunch and well-to-do Mormon family--they'll manage to reverse that brainwashing quickly, we can be sure of that.)

The Amber Alert started here in the Dallas Fort Worth area in Arlington, Texas, when Amber Hagerman was seen snatched from her bike, and found dead a few days later. The thought was that if an alert had gone out at the beginning, the truck would have been spotted and perhaps she could have been rescued. They have been issued occasionally since then, and have been proven to work. No one has been arrested in Hagerman's murder, as I recall.

With all the assorted folks the media can drag up, once in awhile they can do something that actually is enlightening. On the "Today" program this morning, they interviewed one of the few people who could speak directly to the issues of Elizabeth Smart......Patty Hearst.....and she did a fine job.

Spaw, it's funny you should mention Patty Hearst. I just said to Mister last night, Elizabeth Smart is going to be the Patty Hearst of 2003.

It seems to me that this man deliberately targeted a sheltered little girl with no street smarts, a sweet, trusting child who probably wouldn't fight back or give him any trouble. There's no telling what he told her, that kept her from trying to get back home.

38 states required thumbprints for drivers licenses and Dept of Motor Vehicles I.D. cards before Sept 11, now the other 12 are signing on. Oklahoma just passed the legislation. Soon, all of you will have your thumbprints mixed in with the only other major group being thumbprinted...criminals who have gone through booking. Then it'll be Iris scans, DNA, etc.

In Austin, now, your application to be a city cop is automatically trashed if your I.Q. is over 100. And they are encouraging gang members to join the force...as a beneficial way of putting their 'energies' to use. The cops of the future.

So let me get this straight...you women want to put a gridwork into place where any cop who sees you driving your kid or grandkid and feels an 'urge' could go to motor vehicles and run a license plate number, come up with some names, pick the kid from the I.D. photo, and then drop by the kid's school and pull her or him out of class for some coffebreak recreation? It is ALMOST as simple as that right now, and the cops being hired WILL use the technology that way. You know that as well as I do. They'll get busted now and then, but they were on their way to jail anyway as gang members.

New license plates are burned with a bar code so cameras on interstates can scan and register your car as you drive. And GPS boxes in cars can be tracked, and if you'll recall there was a move not long ago to implant everyone with microchips (a move which will be resurrected, don't worry). But for now it's just the 'Amber Alert'. No. When you feel you support the Amber Alert legislation, just imagine that gang member telling your grandkid to do it 'one more time, bitch'.

And hell no Amber Hagerman hasn't been found...it would interfere with the NEED to look for her if she was found. They built a whole new technology around her name, so do you really think she'll EVER turn up?

Dear Disturbed Guest, I've found and read a great many of the articles and websites that give the same information you are so frantically giving us. You know what? They are not convincing, just as you are not convincing. And you know why? They, like you, take a bit of information, twist it to fit into their own biases then inflate it until the original nugget is all but unrecognizable.

One of the points these websites make is: Follow the money trail. That's what I'd like to tell you: Follow the money trail- these people who are disseminating 'information' are making money.

    In January 1996, nine-year-old Amber Hagerman was riding her bicycle on a warm Saturday afternoon when a neighbor heard the girl scream. The neighbor saw a man pull Amber off her bike, throw her into the front seat of his pickup truck, and drive away at a high speed.

    The neighbor called police and provided a description of the suspect and his vehicle, but couldn't recall much else. Arlington Police and the FBI interviewed other neighbors and searched for the suspect and vehicle. Local radio and TV stations covered the story in their regular newscasts.

    Four days later, Amber's body was found in a drainage ditch four miles away. Her throat had been cut. Her kidnapping and murder remain unsolved.

OK, it was over the top, and I knew better, but I wanted to make a point. Amber Hagerman is dead, but what about the ones below?:

Fla. can't find 1,000 kids in state custody

That number is way, way off, too. The number of missing had climbed to over 3,000 before they just stopped counting. Wasn't good for the Democrats OR the Republicans OR the cause of Big Government. And if you think the technology isn't there to facilitate this kind of thing, what about this?:

Head of agency's data-security team is on state list of sexual predators

Sage reacted reasonably by pointing out the mis-statement in my last post, and the rest of you largely took the opportunity to chew on me. That's fine. Bite me. But it is disgusting how people ignore the scope of a problem and can be duped by a single 'example'. the Amber Alert system WILL mutate into the system I described. All FEMA boxes are now in place in all FAA-controlled TV and radio stations, so those could be tied into the Amber Alert system within an hour. Just sign an executive order and issue instructions to the technicians. And the system will catch an occasional killer, but primarily it'll be used to terrorize us. We'll be sent on hysterical daily chases looking for 'white vans', while the people in charge of the system abuse it.
