In my experience, I find it's best when one person isn't stuck in one role. I find people who are generally more well-rounded in all aspects of life tend to be versatile.
Now when it comes down to the real housework, I think we both kind of gravitated towards what our chores were growing up as kids - I more often take out the trash, mow the lawn, and keep up after the dog. He more often cooks and fixes the cars LOL.
He fixes the car??? OmiGAWD! Where did you find him.. or her... whatever... he washes his hands though when he comes in from the garage, right?

<quoted text>Mental health professionals??? Hah__ROFLMAO!
Try thinking it through, include high school age kids and forward, consider rehab stays in one of the plethora of for profit centers such as Lakeside and consider that in many cases police officers will be making the initial observations.
Also consider that once a persons name is placed on a list__it lasts forever and in Florida is very often made public where future employers, organizations, bankers, neighbors etc can find it with ease.
The Virginia Tech and Aurora killers were both being treated by mental health professionals who were aware of their tendencies toward violence, but either could not or would not take any action.

People can lose their guns when their estranged wife gets a restraining order, but not if they are certifiably looneytunes.

Stop diverting to irrelevancies.

Names should be removed from such lists when qualified professionals certify that the person no longer poses a danger.

So, then you have a kid acting up in high school and the teacher wants him out of her class; she notifies the guidance counselor, principal and the kid gets railroaded into a facility.
That is incorrect for non-criminal actions unless the parents choose to ignore their rights to due process and agree to the transfer.

The neighbors lived on either side of him, he was single, they were married with children, his pine trees obstructed power lines and were cut down, guess that set him off. 3 people dead. Lovely.
That's the crux of the problem, you don't know who is close to the edge of snapping.
BTW, that nutjob on my street whose pittbull bit my daughters dog is trying to befriend us again, giving us peace signs and came over with a bag of bananas from his tree, I said, no thanks.
You should see this joker, looks like a total nutjob. I debated on telling him to pay the vet bill for the hole his dog put into her dogs face, but said, eff it. Rather not have anything to do with him.,
Pit bulls are worthless and all are dangerous. If you are afraid to shoot his dog, feed it poison.

Seriously, hire an attorney and sue him, or at least take him to small claims court. Make him share your pain.

LOL yes he grew up with four older brothers, so he tended to learn some of those kinds of things.

I was the oldest, so all I can do is change diapers and make kids laugh. And we don't have kids! Ack.

<quoted text>The frikken problem is easy access to guns because there are far too many available. Most of the crazies are not going to pursue an arsenal and the math says that most of the devious crazy like Holmes are gonna get them anyway.
Lanza didn't even own a weapon__that arsenal belonged to his gun freak mother.
The mental health angle is merely a deflection, the people who sell and trade in firearms need their foreskins snapped back big
time.
The gunshow loophole needs to go, frankly gunshows need to go as well so long as they consist of places for 2nd amendment freaks to gather up to hear the likes of Ted Nugent and then accidentally shoot one another.
Need to remove the yayhoo factor.
Lots of suppressed anger in your posts.

Sounds like you may have mental health issues and are trying to deflect the problem.

Just wait until homosexual married couples find out that in many circumstances their income tax liability will increase by virtue of being married.

Yes, yes, it's true. "The president is a traitor to our race!" Yawn... so, um, what're you wearin', beautiful, and what would it take to get it off of you?

True, I just come here to meet girls. Actually, I just do everything to meet girls. Actually, it's kind of addicting to meet conservative girls and convince them that purple and orange are attractive complementary colors.

Bullshyt, there are no universally qualified mental health experts and the suicide rate among that group is much higher than the nation at large.

After the fact doesn't count, the VA Tech shooter was on two lists and no one gave a sht__the Aurora shooter could have been preempted "if-if and if."

Mental health experts don't solve sht pal__never have!

As proof I offer Nidal Malik Hasan.

Well, kids, it's been real. I have to go stuff some peppers and keep an eye out for that BITCH, Betsy or whatever she is now. Leo, I love you, baby. I'll put a stuffed pepper aside for you just in case. The cherry blossoms are nearly out so I get to avoid the mall and them until their admirers go back to Iowa or wherever.
