The Anthony's are crass carpet baggers compared to those folks.
I don't like the Anthony's but the did pay into their SS and if they are Seniors they are entitled to it!

I'm really baffled as to what they are trying to accomplish here (besides making money). How would grandparents rights have helped Caylee one bit?

Most people who start foundations lobby for things that would help children in the same situation. I fail to see how grandparents rights would have helped at all here. Would Caylee still be alive if George and Cindy had had the rights they lobby for? I really don't see this as a foundation to do anything productive.

I thought that they were on SSDI, which is different from regular social security. I don't think Cindy is 62 yet. So, she is on SSDI, which means she stated she was too disabled to work...I say, "BS" to that...

Yeah, Boycott Dr. Phil!!! Forget about anyone who interviews the Anthony's, they are old news. Who just want publicity, and fame now...publicity junkies...don't feed the trolls!

It is not a 'foundation' as they stated ... they have incorporated so it will be a Not For Profit Corporation as opposed to Non-Profit foundation. The only name associated so far is Mark Lippman the A's attorney.

I have much compassion for George and Cindy. I cannot even begin to imagine their pain. Blame their parenting skills and their courtroom behavior all you want. Consider them accomplices who were "in on it" if that's what you believe. I don't. Hopefully no one here will ever have to walk in similar shoes. They are victims, too. I wouldn't wish what they have been through on anyone.

I don't think they were in on it either but I think starting a fund is the wrong thing. No amount of grandparents rights would have stopped what happened to Caylee. The only thing that might have been different is she would have been reported missing earlier if they'd had visitation rights and Casey wasn't delivering her for visitation but they wouldn't have had visitation rights because there was no need to get them when she was living with them and no time to get them afterwards, in this case.

I do think the fund is for attention and I think it will benefit the Anthony's not children in similar situations. So, I'm not contributing.

Are you sure? When did THAT happen?

Remember in the courtroom it was proven that she was actually logged in at WORK when she tried to take the blame for searching for "chloroform" on their home computer.

Dr. Phil is getting an email from me about his choice of guests ...

They should not be out trying to gain fame and make money off their dead grandchild. Anyone normal and decent would not be doing this. They would actually grieve.
