People who do not understand why Casey Anthony is a free woman do not understand the economy.
Let’s face it. The economy stinks. Currently there are 14 million unemployed Americans. That’s just the ones we can count. Economists think a more accurate figure is around 30 million. 30 million is a lot of people, that is equal to one line at Disney World.
Americans go back to work when the “next big thing comes along.” Think of how many jobs the cell phone and computer industry created.
In Washington, they hold a prayer meeting every evening in the oval office, praying for “the next big thing” to arrive, hopefully before the 2012 election, so Obama can brag about how his administration created jobs.
Then one night Obama was watching the Casey Anthony trial and it hit him. Here was the ” next big thing”.
I don’t want to divulge any CIA secrets, but let’s just say a few strings were pulled, a few jurors were guaranteed they would never have to pay income tax ever again, and Casey was a free woman.
Bingo ! The ” next big thing” had arrived. Happy Days are here again , and unemployment is expected to dip below five percent , just in time for the next election!
Don’t you see? By freeing Casey, a whole new industry has been formed.
The Casey Anthony Industry. All the recent graduates of Pundit College will be hired by TV stations to go on air, look very serious and analyze the “Anthony Case.” Thousands of magazines will be sold with story after story about the “Anthony Case”. Millions will watch TV fascinated by the “Anthony Case.” New internet sites will be launched about the “Anthony Case.” Of course, all these media outlets will sell advertising and ad agencies will have to hire more people.
And as a quick aside, the crime rate is expected to drop rapidly as crimanals stay home fascinated by Ms. Anthony’s audacious verdict .
Back to the economy.
Bus after bus will be hired to take people to the courthouse to protest the “Anthony Case’. This means more bus drivers will be hired, more gas will be sold, more new buses will be built. Millions of protest signs will be needed, increasing the need for paper and hiring at paper mills will double, even triple. People will start reading newspapers again, even collecting special newspaper editions about the “Anthony Case”. More reporters will be hired, more editors, more people to print and deliver the papers.
And of course there will be convention after convention held in major cities analyzing the “Anthony Case.” This will mean more airplane tickets, more hotel rooms, more food will be sold.
And think how Hollywood will prosper making movie after movie about the “Anthony Case.” And of course a whole new conspiracy industry will spring up around the “Anthony Case.”
I have only touched upon some of the ways that the “Anthony Case” will ripple through the economy hiring person after person. The economic impact is so mind boggling, it is almost impossible to calculate.
Oh it is a wonderful thing ” The Anthony Case.” If you sent her to jail, how does that help the economy? But by letting her go, what a shot in the arm for the economy. And right now Obama is leaning back in his chair , in the Oval Office, dreaming of five percent unemployment and reelection. Rumors persist that he might make Ms. Anthony his next vice president. Heck, she already is an expert on vice.
