Oh, yeah, AND she's full of crap too. As if the cow has any clue when the first human actually suffered from PTSD.
while PTSD is not new, we are seeing record number of cases of it, due in large part because of the number of combat tours we have asked our military serve. Some troops have seen 5 and 6 combat tours.

The suicide rate for our vets is 66 PER DAY.

Doesn't that tell you something?

If not just for the protecting our vets from themselves, background checks are a step in stemming that.

But I suppose approximately 24,065 vets offing themselves a year doesn't bother you

Obama should take a stand based on principle.
I agree, but then I also had the same opinion when Bush increased them.

My only question to you is, did you have the same opinion back then?

Really, PTSD is not "mentally debilitating"

such a statement tells me quite a bit about you.

1. You never seen combat, heck I'd be willing to bet you never served a day in the military.
2. You don't know anyone who has seen combat.
3. You probably don't know any vets.
4. Your extent of supporting our troops is a bumper sticker that says
"Support our Troops" or "Support our Vets"

Martin was clearly browner than Zimmerman therefore Martin bears the bulk of the guilt.

<quoted text> Only in the right-wing blogosphere is George Zimmerman portrayed as a "victim" Pleading self-defense doesn't make you the "victim" , it only shows that you believe that you did not commit premeditated murder. Trayvon Martin IS the victim because that's who was killed.
If being the armed adult facing an unarmed teen doesn't make you a victim I just don't know what does.

Let's say here that efficiency = MPG

A gallon of Ethanol = 28 megajoules of Energy
A gallon of gasoline = 45 megajoules of Energy

How could Ethanol possibly outdo Gasoline?

Well, if you gave the Ethanol Engine a Turbocharger and the Gasoline Engine *NOT* then that would be an unfair comparison.

And the House Repugnants will accuse him of increasing our reliance on OPEC oil. DUH

You really think the House Repugnants from the Corn Belt (nearly 100% R) will end the ethanol fiasco??

If so, you're dumber than a stump.

The latest wild azz guess for "military veterans" is about 25 suicides per day. That's "all" veterans and active duty___certainly many of those suicides are not related their service to county.

Still it's too many.

The suicide rate among active duty military
