There lifestyle actually makes them look younger then they are. But, its all beside the point. the Texas appeals court has ordered their return they were all illegally removed by criminal trash masquerading as government officials. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and the Children's rights were violated.

Only Texas would allow people to abuse 400 plus children under cover of government. Texas should be abolished or given back to Mexico. Mexico however may not take them. Mexico is the most currupt nation on earth, if Texas was a country, Mexico could only claim second place.

I praise the courts in Texas for bringing an end to this abuse of Family Rights. It has been a long time that I have been able to say something like that of a US court.

The family is the strength of this coutry and it is for family and coutry that our soldiers give their lives.

Finally, a good story to watch on tv.

This didn't apply to all of them, stork.
Are you a vet?
I think they should take custody of all the men and send their butts to Iraq. Let them see what freedom really is.

No joy I'm not a vet.

Are you vet? Should all men and women fight in a war to understand freedom?

Is it freedom for a father/mother to loose their children to a divorce that they don't want? No, but it's the times we live in, to a great extent, because of the way things are in this country.

Freedom does not mean hurting others is okay. And while there are many allegations against the FLDS there has to be proof or we are all in deep trouble.

This country is on the brink of loosing it's freedoms in whole, or, restoring the freedoms that have already been breached. How it turns out will depend greatly on it's people undstanding what those freedoms really mean to all of us, and how the loss of them will adversely affect each of us.

Unfortuately, too often, unless someone is directly effected by something, they are either neutral (don't care), intelectually titillated, or take an offensive position, especially with the propaganda that gets displayed in all the media outlets.

Freedom is never free.

While it is a larger scale in Texas right now Frank it happens every where in the USA due to the CAPTA law. It is a revenue stream that most states can't ignore. It is also interesting that when it passed Social Security and medicare were both soon in trouble as both provide funding to CPS and many more children were placed in the system. In LA county it was proven that 97% of the kids in foster care where removed with out cause a few years ago. Many could not go home however as CPS's investigation had destroyed their families.
