Wow, interesting movie!
I just posted the following on the Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. This is why American is going down hard and perhaps explains why libs are so bent on self destruction.
Why do People Hurt Themselves? New Insights Into the Nature and Functions of Self-Injury
Many theoretical models of NSSI have been proposed. Psychodynamic theorists suggest that NSSI is performed as a way of gaining control over urges for sex or death. Folk explanations invoke concepts like manipulation of other people, impulsiveness, and low self-esteem. Empirical work on NSSI has aimed at identifying correlates of this behavior, with childhood abuse and psychiatric disorders emerging most consistently in the literature. The strong relation between psychiatric disorders and NSSI has led many to conceptualize NSSI as a symptom of a psychiatric disorder. However, such a perspective is unsatisfying given that NSSI occurs across many disorders and is not symptomatic of any one disorder (Nock et al., 2006). Moreover, suggesting that people engage in NSSI because it is a symptom of a disorder provides little explanatory power.

What Factors Increase the Risk of NSSI?
The proposed model suggests that some people develop intra- or interpersonal vulnerabilities that predispose them to respond to challenging or stressful events with affective or social dysregulation, creating a need to use NSSI or some other extreme behavior to modulate their experience. Preliminary evidence for such vulnerabilities comes from laboratory-based studies.

Why libs are so into alcohol and drugs, and live for the left wing media mothership!
There are many noninjurious ways to regulate emotions (e.g., exercise, alcohol) or communicate with others (e.g., talking, gesturing). So why use NSSI? Below I present several specific processes proposed to increase the likelihood that a person will use NSSI to serve these functions. These hypothesized processes each have preliminary empirical support and represent some of the most intriguing current directions for NSSI research.
Social Learning Hypothesis
The decision to engage in NSSI undoubtedly is influenced by observing the behavior being used by others. Indeed, most self-injurers report first learning about the behavior from friends, family, and the media. Interestingly, there has been a sharp increase in references to NSSI in movies, songs, print media, and the Internet over the past decade (Whitlock, Purington, & Gershkovich, 2009), which may help explain the apparent increase in this behavior over the same period.
Self-punishment or self-deprecation also may motivate NSSI, with NSSI representing a form of self-directed abuse learned via repeated abuse or criticism by others. This would explain further how and why childhood abuse is associated with the behavior. Recent research supports this hypothesis, by showing that the relation between childhood abuse and NSSI is mediated by adolescent self-criticism (Glassman, Weierich, Hooley, Deliberto, & Nock, 2007). Moreover, many self-injurers endorse self-punishment as a primary motivator for NSSI (Nock & Prinstein, 2004).
Social Signaling Hypothesis
NSSI can be especially effective as a means of social communication and influence precisely because it is a harmful, and thus costly, behavior (Hagen, Watson, & Hammerstein, 2008; Nock, 2008). As demonstrated in research on animal communication, signaling behaviors that are costly to perform are more likely to be believed by other animals because otherwise producing them would not pay off (Hauser, 1996). Translating this principle to humans, high-intensity or high-cost behaviors (e.g., aggressive gestures, NSSI) are more likely to elicit desired responses from others than are low-intensity or low-cost behaviors (e.g., verbal requests). NSSI may be especially likely when other communication strategies have failed due to poor quality or clarity, or when less costly behaviors have not produced the desired effect due to an unresponsive or invalidating environment (Wedig & Nock, 2007).

I know I have paid health and car insurance for the last 40 plus years and I have never had either one to go down, no matter who was the President of the United States, go figure.
#67548 Dec 8, 2012
That's nice. It has nothing at all to do with what I posted earlier, though. So how about we try something a little more difficult for you to tap dance around...a direct question. What does the following phrase mean to you?
"A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State;"
Does it stand on its own? Does it modify what comes after? Does it serve to provide context, clarification, or exposition? Does it mean anything at all, and if not, why was it included?
#67549 Dec 8, 2012
Sorry you can't figure those out on your own :)
#67550 Dec 8, 2012
Hi Jay :)
Hope you're doing well also :)
Also Michigan too :)
#67552 Dec 8, 2012
Obviously you don't know how to respond when someone asks what something means to *you*. Or else, you're an idiot who thinks they're being clever. Either way.

Liberalism is a Mental Disorder!
Detroit slashes jobs as bankruptcy rumors build
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing announced at a press conference Friday afternoon that the city would lay off 400-500 workers over the next few months. The city is struggling to fix its troubled finances and stave off a possible Chapter 9 bankruptcy, even as the mayor and city council clash over how to solve the problem.
If Detroit can't get its financial house in order, it could become the largest U.S. city -- at a population of 700,000 -- to file for bankruptcy protection. Earlier this year, two mid-sized California cities -- Stockton and San Bernardino -- filed for bankruptcy.

Hey there AL.
I've been looking at a website that shows you exactly where certain people live; their names and the satellite view of their home. Actually I was looking at mine. All you need is an address. Interesting enough you can span the neighborhood also, and the names of the people in the neighborhood also appear. If they have a phone that is listed, you also get the phone number. As you pan through this, you can tell exactly how many live in the household and all their names.
What might be of concern to people with young girls is who may be stalking your daughter or wife maybe - or just wanting to know where you live. It can be used in nefarious ways also, by anyone who has ulterior motives or who might be casing your neighborhood. Maybe they just want to watch your home so they can steal the trailer behind your shed.....LOL!
Anyway, I liked it better when all we had was a phone book.

Hey libs, watch this video about 3,000 times and maybe you will start to understand why 2013 is going to be a great year economically, NOT!
