    Truth vs. Lies, Truth only need be told once, Lies depend on other Lies to hold them up.

    Ask your selfs who is changing there story and who has stood by their word, even when no one believed them.

    Another story, and another trial for Jeffs. How many times does this guy need to be called before we realize that there is a problem here?

    Shurtleff said he will have to rely on his memory of the 2002 meeting with FLDS representatives. The investigator who sat in on the meeting died, and notes of the meeting cannot be found. . .


    You have got to be kidding.

    We can take a lesson from Watergate and follow the money.

    We pay taxes. Some of that money goes to polygamist women and their children as welfare and food assistance. The FLDS takes 10% of these handouts and has built a fund worth millions. We also help fund shelters to assist the lost boys. The FLDS is sort of a passive-aggressive entity. By not supporting its women and children, it can drain us of our money, skim off the top and build up a fortune. Then, Shurtleff takes control of the fortune due to mismanagement. He transfers some of the assets that rightly belong to members and not the church. Still, a lot of money remains ripe for the picking by those who have been abused. Many of the abused are also maximizing their financial opportunities by writing books on their bizarre experiences. In all fairness, book writing is being done more for cathartic reasons and to alert the public to a problem. It is probably impossible for the public to retrieve its misappropriated welfare money, so giving it to victims is probably the best possible outcome and maybe even fair since we didn't put an end to abuse.
