Why are our kids forced by this gov to go to school? What right did the Gov have to get so involved with our lives? Where did they get the permission to take over the damned planet? Our kids would not be subjected to bullies or any other evil if it were not for the fact that they are forced to go to state run schools. How many of you have figured out that this is far from being a free society. We are already under communism. I would rather rely on the God of Heaven than a bunch of super foolish God denying and God defying creeps that own and operate the US gov.

Because without public education some kids would believe masturbation makes them go blind, or that girls bodies can magically stop a pregnancy after a rape. If parents didn't raise their children to believe they were God's gift to the earth and everyone else sucked, there wouldn't be a bullying problem.

You can rely on God and heaven to punish or reward after death but while I'm alive it's up to me to pay taxes for schools and roads, law enforcement and things that keep us a global economic player and not a third world country ran by religious zealots or militant isolationists. Most in the bible belt seem to be pushing for the third world status by our low health care standards and low state education ratings. Without well educated college graduates our economy will stay stagnant with nothing but non skilled minimum wage jobs.

What did I learn at school,nothing but being beaten physicaly and verbaly by students and teachers and social ostracism.Im not a dumb person or weak but I am a completely wellfare dependant bitter failure.I wonder if things would have been different for me if the place that was supposed to educate me wasnt my personal definition of hell on Earth.

I wonder what the next mental disorder will be?

We have had ADD/ADHD then the PTSD followed by the Bi polar disorder and the a whole DMS book of horse manure written to erode parental authority and collapse the democracy and create an unstable society for the New World Order.

The mental health and pharmacutical industries have increased homosexuality with the mind drugs forcing the society (church and military) to except the changes so that the sales of mind drugs wouldnt effect the stock market.

We have listened to their stories of multi personality and witnessed the millions of violent acts and murders created by the mind drugs that altered the personality of people who didn't mean to do what they did except they were on the mind drugs and addicted to the monthly prescription for the profit of returned business.. we let babies be murdered in Conn and aircraft flown into mountains and then blamed the happening on the new (made to order) mental diseases and illnesses.

Ever known anyone who truly has ADD/ADHD or PTSD? Maybe you need to know something about what you are judging.

It's mainly kids who don't stick up for themselves, depressed or not..

I can't imagine a 300 pound depressed bodybuilder being bullied too much.

Apparently you lack knowledge on the subject.

Let's start. There is no science to psychiatry. No medical model. No evidence based medicine and there never was a test for chemical imbalance of the brain which was an essential part of diagnosing ADD / ADHD and bi polar disorder. See next post.

From the horses mouth:

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.

Pasted from < http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/12/ff_dsmv... ;


There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.
