CASEY ANTHONY: SINGLE MOM OF THE YEAR!July 6, 2011How many months of man-hours did Florida police spend searching for little Caylee Anthony back in 2008, while her mother, Casey Anthony, knew exactly where the child's body was?
If you were the victim of a crime in Orlando, Fla., between July and December 2008, you should be enraged that the police couldn't prevent or investigate your crime because they were too busy looking for a missing child whose mother already knew the kid was dead.
It's a zero-sum game with police resources. Cops combing through the woods searching for a missing child are not going to be patrolling your street or arresting suspects.
From repeat domestic violence calls to Los Angeles car chases, hit-and-run drivers and the balloon-boy hoax, worthless louts consume vastly more law enforcement resources than the rest of us. Cops in any town will tell you all the domestic violence calls come from the exact same homes, over and over again.
As long as we're looking for new revenue streams, how about billing these white trash low-lifes for their massive consumption of police resources? The dregs of society need to be assessed a fee for their abuse of government services and thrown in debtors prison in the unlikely event that they can't pay.
As I described in my last book, "Guilty," the leading cause of all social pathologies is single motherhood. One way or another, Casey Anthony's refusal to give up Caylee for adoption was going to cost society -- and cost Caylee.
The statistics are so jaw-dropping that not giving up an illegitimate child for adoption ought to be considered child abuse.
Various studies have shown that children raised by a single mother comprise about 70 percent of juvenile murderers, delinquents, teenaged mothers, drug abusers, dropouts, suicides and runaways. Imagine an America with 70 percent fewer of these social disorders and you will see what liberals' destruction of marriage has wrought.
The mainstream media and Hollywood studios are constantly issuing propaganda about the joys and triumphs of single mothers.Read the rest at AnnCoulter.com
Thus, for example, the noted scientific periodical Us Weekly celebrated single motherhood with an article titled "The New Single Moms and How They Do It," which delusionally proclaimed that the "sisters are doing it for themselves."
No, they're not. They're "doing it" at an enormous and unasked-for cost to every man, woman and child in America. They're doing it at incalculable cost to the children themselves, such as helpless, innocent Caylee.
Coulter joins the Mob.

Where are the pictures?
It’s your turn this week!
Amen.Ann...You lost me on Neo Yankee...love for Thurgood but you got me back on this frank diatribe on single mommydom
Base hit...ground rule double
The liberaltarians on FR won’t like this.
Ann says the mother knew where the body was. When was that proven?
Sounds like she’s all for the government running roughshod over people SHE thinks are guilty.
And this is the last post I’ll make on Anthony. Most people think she’s guilty because of all the “evidence” presented by Nancy Grace and Bill egO.
Well, sort of. The problem is not "single mothers," because historically, there have always been a lot of them, either because Daddy got killed in the wars, Daddy was just a passing fancy, or for other reasons totally beyond anybody's control. And many of those mothers did a great job.
The problem is that society has now adopted a model where the child is the woman's "problem," and Daddy is just the sperm donor. Some women are up to dealing with this, but most are not. And even men, who thought it was going to be really cool to go where the wild geese go, be totally free and untethered, not have to worry about bothersome women and their bothersome pregnancies and relationships, are suddenly finding that their lives are totally screwed up.
So don't blame the women. Blame a society that has totally dumped the idea of male responsibility, female stability, family bonds and anybody giving a darn about the child.
Makes you wonder about these mass media entities.
As a once upon a time single teenaged Mom who never once asked for one single penny in a handout, I find this offensive. I sure hope this quote is taken completely out of context.
Amen. Ann is right.
Be that as it may, her statements about single mothers are spot on. Black illegitimacy rates are 70%. 90+% of gang members are from single mother homes. Kids get murdered, raped, etc by the boyfriends of single moms.
“As long as we’re looking for new revenue streams, how about billing these white trash low-lifes for their massive consumption of police resources?”
Surely you are aware that single motherhood has changed since the time you struggled with it to raise your child.
Handouts are de rigeur nowadays, the state and fedgov have become the fount of every blessing, at taxpayer expense. The rate of single teen pregnancy is very very high, compared with what it used to be.
You are to be commended for being responsible. Very few are.
This is so absolutely true, but it's becoming difficult to mention it even in "conservative" circles because single motherhood is fast becoming the norm. The truth is that this is sinking the country--to the point where I doubt it can survive for another generation.
You are part of the 30%, bless you surrounded!
I am a libertarian and I like this article a lot.
And YOU join the IDIOT jurors.
Well, I believe you joined ‘em yesterday, IDIOT.
A point of disagreement with her, that adoptive children are disinterested in their birth parents. I have helped some adopted children find their birth parents, admitted with mixed results, but in all cases, it was an intense desire to “know” about their birth parents.
I came up with a technique, that when I had a lead on a possible birth parent, to notify them in a non-threatening manner, which would give them the option to follow up or not. A simple postcard, that said that the adopted person *might* be their child, and would like to contact them for “medical reasons”; and if they were interested, they could contact the adopted person at a phone number. If not, do nothing.
The least successful case was interesting, in that the birth father did contact the adopted son, oddly and honorably enough, to let him know that his father was a worthless reprobate, who would have been a truly rotten father. He even met with his son, and convinced him that he was far better off with his adoptive parents. After the meeting, the son thanked him for his honesty, and agreed with him.
The most successful case was of an adopted girl living far away from home, and horribly depressed to the point of committing suicide. She knew her birth mother lived near her adoptive family, and after her friends had taken up a collection for a bus ticket home, literally as she was getting on the bus, I handed her the name and address of her birth mother.
Once she was home, with her adoptive parents, she contacted her birth mother, and her world was changed. As it turned out, her birth mother was only 16 when she had her, and was *forced* to give her up for adoption, and had suffered about her lost daughter ever since.
She had married, and had two more children, now both adults, yet had always pined for her lost daughter. Reunited, the adopted daughter said that she now had two mothers, as well as a new brother and sister, and in the course of a few months had gone from Hell to Heaven, and met her mother there.
Her adoptive parents were thrilled for her, and she and her birth mother would spend hours hugging each other, at first through tears, but then as two souls reunited.
As I lean more and more from Conservative to libertarian in my old age, I find your comment most perplexing. In full disclosure, I when I disagree with librarians I usually find their economics is wrong, not there libatarian values.
A pure libertarian would say that the problem with single moms being a burden on society is that government offers assistance it shouldn't. So the problem is not Single motherhood, it is socialism. If you want to keep your illegitimate baby out of a twisted sense of self worth- fine, but don't expect others to pay. I bet the illegitimate rate would drop pretty fast.
So you are telling me that she knew that the kid drowned and that she was dead, but had absolutely no idea how the body ended up in an area where she would dispose of her dead pets. She was willing to tell some of her “story” (the drowning), but she she did not want to finish it.
She is a compulsive liar(and proud that she could lie so well according to her boyfriend) and decided to tell the truth in court when her life truly depended on it? Don't think so.
I don't doubt that her parents are liars too(she learned it from somewhere) and that they are the biggest enablers on the planet of all of her idiotic and immature behaviors. However, I do not believe that they had anything to do with Caylee’s death. Caysey owns this crime. Nothing, and I mean nothing that has come out of her mouth is the truth. She lied to her parents and friends for years about her supposed job at Universal studios. She is diabolical.
I didn't need to listen to the talking heads on T.V. to make me feel this way. Just my common sense. Just for the record, I never watched any of the shows about this. Never!
But you are not a liberaltarian. :)
Yes I do. And if anyone goes after them if it is in my power they will have to go through me first.
Excellent article by Ann Coulter.
Single mothers are the result of society condoning sin and praising single motherhood.
It's Society as you say, and the agenda that the leftists are pushing in order to destroy all that is good and right.
I worked in the juvy court system for 5.5 years and noticed an awful lot of those kids came from never-married couples. Ann’s right.
More evidence than that. Dead smell in the car, partying like no tomorrow, including getting tatoos, failure to report a missing child. She is guilty and the jury needs to have their heads examined. The mother admitted to knowing the child drowned, if that is the case than she did know where Caylee was lying dead. This murderous mother should be awarded the liar of the century medal.
Now that Casey is free she can get a book deal, earn some money, and hire an army of private detectives to find the REAL KILLERS!
After all that strategy worked so well for OJ.
There is a difference between a libertarian and a liberaltarian.
A liberaltarian wants a life of immoral decadence and is generally opposed to traditional values. But they also want tax cuts.
You know something? You are spot on! My child is “only” 13, and to me, that seems like a blink, but a lot does happen in those years. In this State that both Coulter and I share, it seems that single mothers on handouts with multiple “baby daddies” or abortion, is just more accepted.
I thank all for the kind words, and, for making me realize just how old I am now! :)
“Single mothers are the result of society condoning sin and praising single motherhood.”
Remember Dan Quayle and Murphy Brown? Murphy wasn’t some girl from the inner cities waiting for her welfare check. Pop culture and secular elitism leads and welfare follows.
The liberal jury gets credit for a twofer: (1) A vote against the death penalty and (2) Support for late term abortions.
It was, after all, just a “very” late term abortion.
It was, after all, just a “very” late term abortion.
this evil creature had a missing 2 year old for 30 days and did not call the cops ?
her family called the police after she stalled them for a month ?
She went on a cruise while her baby was missing and made up some story about a phony person taking her kid ?
And you think this evil thing is a victim ?
livius: “The problem is not “single mothers,” because historically, there have always been a lot of them, either because Daddy got killed in the wars, Daddy was just a passing fancy, or for other reasons totally beyond anybody’s control.”
It’s all a matter of degree. If you’re making the point that single mothers made up a significant portion of the population historically, I have to disagree. Yes. There were men killed in wars, but the number of males killed versus those not killed was relatively insignificant (at least in America).
The US in WWII had about 130 million souls, but it only lost a bit more than 400 thousand killed. I’m not making light of the men killed, but compared to roughly 65 million men in the population at that time, you’re talking about a very tiny percent killed. That’s hardly “a lot” of single mothers.
I submit that nothing in American history comes even remotely close to the single motherhood rates (or attitudes) of today. In the past, I bet single mothers usually remarried fairly quickly, and having a child out of wedlock was (rightly) considered a bad thing. For the relatively small numbers of widows who didn’t remarry, society was generally supportive. Being a widow didn’t bear the same negative connotation as being an unmarried mother.
However, you’re right that nowadays most folks see nothing wrong with sex outside of marriage. Spiritually, the rules are the same as always, so fornicators and adulterers are still destined to Hell if they don’t repent. Unfortunately, that message no longer resonates with many people who think that being “non judgmental” is the greatest moral attribute one can have.
I too never watched any of the mountains of trash TV and wasted journalism dissecting this case. If they were not all bought and paid for then the hidden truths [in desparate need of full exposure] would totally change the collective reality we find our country in
Honestly the press is simply a bunch of copycat puppets glomming onto the next big story ever in search of ratings no matter how much deeper they go into the gutter for the next and the next and ho humm....
What the hell is wrong with you, Ann? That's not satire.
You take an enormous number of great points, and summarize them into idiotic conclusions that do nothing but bait social warfare explosions. Thanks a heap.
Stop being such a jerk. It's making you lose your touch. You research hits way hard enough without needing you to take potshots at your stunned targets.
Let your facts do your hitting.
Sounds like you didn’t bother to read the fine article (RTFA).
She spent it talking about the high cost to all of unwed motherhood.
I agree with Ann that single-motherdom is one of the chief problems in America.
I agree with you that the media convicted her before she had her day in court.
Twelve jurors sat across the room from her, took measure of her, observed her, heard the states evidence IN PERSON, and decided they weren’t convinced beyond a reasonable doubt to convict her of murder.
Why anyone would suddenly trust the MSM on this story is beyond me.
Great points. Insightful...
I certainly didn’t want to make you feel old! But truthfully, you are an exceptional mother, and your child is very blessed to have you. ((hugs)) and prayers to you.
