Depression

There is No Help Unless You Have Money

My severely depressed son just returned from a "low-cost " mental health treatment office. They can't get him into a doctor (hence no medication) until late November. If he wasn't struggling with depression/anxiety maybe he could get a job with insurance benefits or afford private insurance. THEN he could see a private doctor and get cared for right away. Until then it's sit and wait and be sick and miserable. If he was rich or had insurance his illness wouldn't be put off. He'd be treated right away. So, there's the gist. There is no REAL help if you aren't lucky enough to afford it.  (Sep 28, 2012 | post #1)

New video shows Romney saying Palestinians don't want peace

And what's funny is, on any other occasion, you nutballs don't give a damn what happens to Israel, and you've probably been complaining about Jews for years.  (Sep 19, 2012 | post #25)

New video shows Romney saying Palestinians don't want peace

What Romney said was he hoped things would work out. What?!?! What kind of statement is that from someone who wants to be a world leader. He hopes things work out? Would that be his pat answer for everything? "Mr. President, Iran just bombed Texas out of existence!" "Well, I do hope things work out."  (Sep 19, 2012 | post #24)

Sheriff Joe: Birthers are right

Investigative journalism is for reporting that is factual and worthwhile. Why would any media outlet waste their time on stories that are baseless? Sheriff Joe either needs to get to work being the town's sheriff or stop wasting the tax payer's money chasing ghosts. Too much tax payer money has been wasted on this stupidity already.  (Jul 18, 2012 | post #91)

Sheriff Joe: Birthers are right

Mitt Romney's father is Mexican. George Romney was born in 1907 in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. This could could make his son, Mitt, today's favorite to be the GOP presidential candidate, a potential Mexican citizen. In fact, the GOP front runner has deep roots in Mexico, including his second cousin Leighton Romney, and about 40 other relatives descended from religious pioneers who first traveled to Mexico 125 years ago, according to report airing tonight on NBC's "Rock Center with Brian Williams." The Romneys of Mexico live in Colonia Juarez and Colonia Dublan, two remaining settlements just 175 miles south of the border.  (Jul 18, 2012 | post #46)

Trayvon Martin case: use of Stand Your Ground law or purs...

Stand your ground laws are frequently criticized and called "shoot first" laws by critics. In Florida, the law has resulted in self-defense claims TRIPLING, with all but one of those killed unarmed. The law's critics argue that Florida's law makes it very difficult to prosecute cases against people who shoot others and then claim self-defense. The shooter can argue they felt threatened, and in most cases, the only witness who could have argued otherwise is the victim who was shot and killed. The Florida law has been used to excuse neighborhood brawls, bar fights, road range, and even street gang violence. The Trayvon Martin case brought a large amount of criticism to the law. While the shooter, George Zimmerman, claimed self-defense, evidence indicated that he actually pursued Trayvon Martin despite 911 operators instructing that they did not require him to do so. Legal experts expect that Zimmerman will likely be charged with manslaughter, or possible the greater charge of second degree murder. However, they are split as to whether he will be able to get charges dropped under Florida's stand-your-ground law. The law allows Zimmerman to argue to a judge that the charges should be dropped before trial even begins, but experts are split as to whether Zimmerman's  (Mar 22, 2012 | post #36)

Romney would rank among richest presidents ever

So what? WTF is it in this country these days that has everyone so obsessed with money? Someone could be the crookedest, most corrupt, lying, conniving piece of untrustworthy sh*t to land on the planet, but as long as he has $$$$$ he's fit to be the president (and yes, we've had a few of those presidents). And if he made his money "honestly " then he sits at the right hand side of God. Is that all there is to someone? His bank account? NO ONE makes bundles of money innocently. PERIOD. Doesn't happen. Somewhere, somehow along the way someone has gotten cheated, lied to, manipulated, hurt, or wronged. Romney claims he created jobs through Staples. How many other people lost jobs through his buying and selling? How many people were hurt while HE profitted? I don't care how much money someone has, just don't try to look all sweet and innocent about it. Money manipulation is a game where the rich and powerful can become even more rich and powerful while everyone else gets shortchanged.  (Jan 30, 2012 | post #81)

Congress tries to police itself on insider trading

I think more people than ever are attuned to the political arena. It's not US, it's THEM. Look at the caliber of candidates up for election. Seriously. NONE of them are qualified to be the president of the United States. But that's what we get to choose from. It wouldn't matter if we kicked every single politician out of Washington today and replaced them. The replacements would be exactly the same as what we got rid of. The system is broken and it allows for corruption of even the most upstanding political leader. Until the system is fixed it's not going to matter who we elect.  (Jan 30, 2012 | post #14)
