Women and children. The two words go together like wine and cheese. Like babbling and brook. Like Micro and Soft (errr I’m thinking about Dr. Phil again, sorry).
Women have been with babies since the beginning of recorded history, and probably since before then. They make themselves useful by having babies, taking care of them until they know where to shit and when to eat. Then, hopefully, the men take charge and make men out of boys. That’s the way its always been, and that’s why a million government programs targeted at babies also end up feeding quite a few women in the process. WIC anyone?
Maybe its time to stop that. Maybe its time we gave out harsher punishments to women who abuse the implicit trust that society places in women wherever a baby is concerned.
Here we have a woman who cooked up a sob story about a missing baby that never existed in the first place, all for her own nefarious ends – to manipulate her ex into coming back to her.
MIAMI, Florida (CNN) — Meagan McCormic faced television cameras on Christmas Day to plead for the return of her missing 5-month-old son.
Meagan McCormic, 22, is charged with filing a false police report about a missing baby.

“I don’t even know if he’s dead or alive,” she said.
In fact, she knew that the child had never existed, police said.
McCormic was trying to lure an ex-boyfriend back when she invented a missing-child story that triggered a statewide search this week, police said Friday.
Investigators have charged the 22-year-old with filing a false police report. If convicted, they said, she may have to pay authorities for the cost of their search.
She was scheduled to appear in court Friday afternoon.
McCormic had described her infant son as having a mohawk, a single tooth and a fake tattoo. She told reporters his name was Riley Buchness and that she had left him with a nanny who had a French accent and a gap between her teeth.
She invented the story to lure back an ex-boyfriend by pretending he had fathered a child he did not know about, said Delrish Moss, a spokesman for the Miami Police Department. When the boyfriend showed up and asked to see the child, Moss said, McCormic told him the boy was missing.
“He finally decided to show up, and she created a story and he had no idea,” Moss said.
On Christmas Day, the estranged boyfriend attended a news conference with McCormic under the impression that he had a son who was missing.
“I don’t understand,” John Buchness, 26, said then, choking back tears. “It’s Christmas.”
McCormic told police she had left her son with a nanny named Camille.
“I don’t know if they’re in Florida,” she said. “I don’t know where they are.”
Authorities around Florida started looking for the boy and nanny, using the descriptions McCormic supplied, police said. She even gave police a picture of the boy, but Friday they said they believe she had downloaded the photo from the Internet.
Women lie and lie but no one does anything about it. No matter how many other lives are wasted, how many men get hurt, how much other people’s money gets spent. Meanwhile a man who posts anything about his ex on the internet is arrested at the first chance.
