Your Cheatin’ Heart



Lies from the other side
by Robert A. Waters

Here’s my idea of what a psychic (if there really were such people) should do.

Let’s say there’s a teenage girl missing from Cleveland, Ohio.  Her mother goes on national television to ask the psychic for help.  A real clairvoyant would say: “Your daughter is being held in a house just blocks from where you live.  Send the cops down to 2207 Seymour Avenue Street and they’ll find your daughter—still alive—along with two other kidnapped women.”

Instead, self-proclaimed psychic Sylvia Browne informed Amanda Berry’s mother that her daughter was dead.  Years later, Amanda escaped her captor and led the others to safety, proving Browne dead-wrong. 

Or let’s say an eleven-year-old boy is kidnapped from Richwoods, Missouri.  Here’s what a real psychic would have told his grieving parents: “A big fat pervert kidnapped your boy and is holding him in an apartment in Kirkwood.  Tell police to search in the 400 block of South Holmes Street for a guy who works at a pizza shop.”

Instead, Sylvia Browne advised Shawn Hornbeck’s parents that he’d been kidnapped and murdered. By a tall, thin, “dark-skinned” man, no less.  Four years later, 300-pound, light-skinned Michael Devlin abducted Ben Ownby.  It was only because an eyewitness described his truck to police that Devlin was captured.  Cops rescued Onwby, along with Hornbeck, who'd been held alive for four years.

If a so-called psychic can be so wrong, how in the world can anyone trust her?

Don't gimme that garbage about Browne being right most of the time.  I just don't believe it.  I think she fishes for information and plays the law of averages when making predictions.

For some reason, while penning this blog, the following song kept wigging my mind.

When Sylvia first hit the tv stations she really sounded good because she was good....at reading people. But, she got greedy, teamed up with Montel and between them they made a fortune. She brought his ratings up and she promoted his show, he in turn talked non stop about Sylvia and had everyone waiting to meet her. Then she started they big trips and "invited" the public to join here. If you go to her site and she the prices for the trip you will see she made another fortune. Then she started her own religion and again made another and i stopped even looking at it that that point. She was so good when she first came on tv that people believed everything she told them. Last i heard she had her son and granddaughter working with her. Glad to see you put this on your blog because i believe she had hurt many people and taken a lot of money from people. I watched her trip from the first time on tv up until about 6 years ago. I saw her rise to the top and back down to where i doubt she can sell a book.

She told little Opal Jennings grandmother that Opal had been kidnapped by a white slavery ring and was still alive. It took years before her body was found but it was not far from where she was taken and not in another state like Sylvia told her. Opal’s killer was caught and he acted alone, he killed Opal almost immediately after he raped her. In my opinion Sylvia Browne is the worst type of predator, she preys on gullible desperate people in exchange for money and fame.
