Single Mom

I noticed that. Single parents are a reality, they just are and always will be. That's life, the human condition.

But there is no doubt in my mind that a male and female presence are needed. At age 13 I could lift my mother off the floor. At that age when you are becoming strong, feeling the testosterone and totally fearless "stuff" happens.

This woman is telling the truth in public. Instead of banning guns or knives or baseball bats or any other potential weapon let's get to the heart of the problem. That's a discussion the public doesn't want to have. Drugs are not the answer.

Progressive Agenda/Single Parents - 300% Increase

You say "That's life, the human condition," but that's not really the case. Yes, there were always a certain amount of single parents who'd been widowed. THAT is just life. The situation since the 60's, however, is a result of both *divorce* and *unwed motherhood* having been *normalized*.

"Since the 1960s, there has been a marked increase in the number of children living with a single parent. The 1960 United States Census reported that 9% of children were dependent on a single parent, a number that has increased to 28% by the 2000 US Census.

Reminds me of this. Did you see the film "Agenda" by former Congressman Bowers? That's when I first learned of the *published* goals of the communists - to basically take down America "from withing." Among 45 declared goals: "40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce."

I agree with you mostly

The normalization - no question. Also that people don;t see family as the commitment the way we did in generations past. Big problem.

The reason I say I mostly agree is that unfortunately the genie is out of the bottle. It is the new normal and is not going to go away. I also believe that the economic base that is required for strong families is disappearing.

Being pro-healthy economy means being pro-healthy family IMO.

Thanks for the links. I will definitely check it out. I always learn something on the Daily Paul !

"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo

Re divorce/unwed mothers,

yes, the genie is out of the bottle. The only solution is the "uncooling" of such lifestyles. Marketers/advertisers do it all the time: make certain things "cool" so you'll want to buy their products. Unfortunately, the only "products" here are "children who are not disadvantaged in terms of their academic success and emotional well being."

That link was just a source for the statistics. But here is a link to the movie Agenda. I saw it in a library, shown by our local tea party, but it's now on line. (Here is the documentary's website, too. Also a link to my comment on another thread, why "defining deviance down" happened to be top of mind. I hear you about learning things here at the Daily Paul!

It's not just psychiatrists

Any medical doctor can prescribe a psychotropic drug and justify it. I'm not saying this is a problem... I think the development of these new cure-alls are the problem. The ones that have been thoroughly tested have been said to be overprescribed due to their addictive nature... Well maybe they're addictive because they work! Holy crap... I'm a former psych student.

I was prescribed Prozac by a PA

Note clearly, PA is "Physicians Assistant" and is not a PhD. So it's not even "any medical doctor", it's also less-than-doctors that prescribe these poisons.

Are particularly unnevering... but valium? A benzo is something you'd take to calm yourself down before you do your premeditated act. The newer class of drugs (SSRI and SSNI) do not have long enough test studies for clinical research. The traditional ones that actually work "like Xanax or Klonopin" or even Hydrocodone is just derivative of the WW2 painkillers and tranquilizers. Zoloft, a SSRI, is known to be extremely dangerous. Imagine if you knew a million people had been given a bad script. 10 million? Hmm...

Amazing stuff, wow!

thanks for the work of this video, very hard hitting, wow, I've shared it everywhere.

kind people rock

If you have problems

Smoke some weed simple as that.

Name one person who died, got sick or physically addicted to the drug marijuana - you can't

If its not your thing then that's ok, just know my "drug" comes from the ground while yours come from the lab.

*Important* I will note that people who have a history of mental health disorders in their family shouldn't smoke weed; I'm talking psychofrenia and bipolar syndromes. I have personally experienced a friend of mine become bipolar from what I believe smoking weed; but by saying this his own father and uncle suffer from the same disease, as well as his family is riddled with. If I am wrong I will continue to look for other possible explanations.

Yep, I experienced this directly...

with my ex. First he's on Xanex for anxiety. Then he REALLY started to go crazy when they prescribed him Adderall on top of that. His family approaches the doctor, desperately trying to be heard (His mom called him 'unrecognizable') & all the doc does is add Seroquil to the list. He went to a $1000/day rehab after a violent episode & they put him on so many MORE pills, he couldn't keep track of all he had to take. Today he lives a sad life & his doctor just keeps supporting the habit. What a racket. This is my daughter's dad. She doesn't even want to see him anymore.

One bad thing about drugs,

One bad thing about drugs, they become depended on by the user. God created the body to heal itself and most often the cure is to remove the sources of sickness, not just physical but emotional, psychological, social, economic, and spiritual. For example, bullying is a stressor, smoking a stressor to body and mind, alcohol a stressor to body and mind, any drug that has side effects is a stressor to body and mind. Drugs attach to receptors and these receptors force that cell to do something unnatural because the body did not command the action. Drugs can "help" but they can also damage. The worst is the dependency. Yes you can be emotional addicted to government and cannot see for the propaganda that has blinded you and this too is a cause for disease. Actually life experiences can either be a cause for disease (bad) or a cause for health (good) and although the body is resistant it can break down. That said, I think the drugs are not the cause but a cause and are merely a good indicator that if a person is dependent on drugs (or other things) this is not good. The only natural dependency is on God because he is perfect and does not encourage addiction but responsibility and faith.

thanks for clearing that up.

much obliged.

and all this time, I thought they were just for fun....darn.
if I view my brain as an electro-chemical soup... with very limited sensors.... is that a bad thing?

Correlation does not prove causality.

Not saying the meds dont cause people to do these things, but I dont think the fact that all these killers were are meds is sufficient evidence to show that meds are the cause. Unstable people are usually put on meds so its not really surprising that people who kill are on meds.

I love this movement. But sometimes we anti-government folks jump to way too many conclusions too quickly. We need to better practice healthy skepticism.

If only "unstable" people were put on them you might be right

While these drugs were still in clinical trials, the CONTROL subjects - no history of mental illness and having been pre-screend for the trial - committed suicide.
People get put on these with NO test to prove there is a real "chemical imbalance." Ah, do some research and learn the truth. Or keep spewing nonsense. Those of us who lived through this hell know what we know.
PS - I did clinical research for Ely Lily for a while. The trials of all medication are based on a flawed model, the entire Pharma industry is set up to get life-long addicts to prescription drugs.

You took the words right out of my fingers. I bumped your comment to the top.

: )

good post


I have noticed over the years that so many of these atrocities occur when the killer is on drugs, legal or illegal. It seems like more prescription than otherwise lately, though.

I was on Prozac for a while in my 20s. I stopped having suicidal ideations after it kicked in, but what happened instead was that I would just do whatever I thought to do. In other words, before I was nearly paralyzed with inaction when I was deeply depressed, but on Prozac I would just magically get up and do whatever (shower, cleaning house, going to work, etc.) with no effort whatever. Now I never felt like killing myself or others, so I don't completely buy that these drugs will make just anyone go nuts. However, I think becoming practically a robot under one's own command could be bad with some people with lingering bad thoughts. Prozac worked for me, temporarily, but I also spent a lot of time learning to talk to myself differently, and developing a whole host of coping behaviors that have helped me ever since I went off the Prozac.

I think as a society we are leaning on these drugs way too much. They have their place IMO, but I have to think that loads of people are taking drugs they really shouldn't.

Look up the chemical symbol for Prozac...

It contains Fluorine.

"Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher"

Here are two videos on the subject. The first is by a former pharmaceutical rep who had an epiphany after her own experience with antidepressants (prescribed when she was going through a divorce). She eventually quit her job, devoting herself to educating others on the side effects of drugs and her conclusions re the industry after 15 years as an insider. (Her book: "Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher."

The second is a physician who explains some of the side effects of different drugs (listed on the labels). Of note: they don't even know *how* these drugs actually work.

P.S. This info is equally relevant to another forum topic here:
"Psychiatry goes insane: Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric manual DSM-5"

Holy crap

watched this clip and realized years ago I'd been prescribed Paxil during marital difficulties. Shitfire Luther...dodged a bullet there, so to speak. Later on 'woke up', pitched the meds, and got out of that marriage.

Praise Jesus Lordy be there is a God.

Re: Rx Drug Pusher - I found it chilling.

She knew what would happen if and when she would be committed to a mental institution. She'd be powerless over what ELSE they could give her. I can't help but think of Brandon Raub. This is why the new "psychiatrist's bible" is so dangerous (did you see that other post?) - with normal behavior being defined as deviant AND with it being so easy, apparently, to *have* someone committed for three days "for observation." If you're belligerent, which would only be NORMAL, they can put you on meds - and they did threaten Raub with that. And then, if they put you on meds and you had a reaction, that could end up being the justification to... keep you involuntarily confined.

Now not everyone who takes SSRI's has severe side effects. BUT, everyone is affected in some way. (In the second clip, the MD said that the drug mfg'ers admit they don't actually know *how* these chemicals affect the brain.) Okay, so not everyone ends up violent towards others or suicidal, BUT *those* are the only stories that MAKE THE NEWS. I wonder how many there are, out there, who are on the brink or "just" suffering.

It is even darker than that

The 3 days thing gets you in, then they start telling you crap to TRY to make you freak out. I was told I might never get out. I went for grief counseling. Because of my history of suicide attempts (from taking SSRIs) I was immediately nabbed, locked up and tormented. They kept me 5 days, tormenting me the entire time. Honest to God, I doubt most people on this forum would have gotten out. I was distraught with grief, but had to pull everything together on the spot and fight for my life. Smile for the staff, lay there and pretend I was sleeping, force feed myself even though I was so scared I could not make spit, and of course, admit that I was crazy and take the pill and thank the nice doctor for helping me... I could tell you more, but you would not believe me. It was just too bizarre.
And they get away with it because MOST people react with suicidality, and when they succumb the "mental illness" is blamed, not the drug. WHEN this mass murder is finally exposed, there will not be one family in America that is not touched by this.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk

I'm SO SORRY you had that experience, fishyculture :(

I don't understand some of the people here saying things like, well, there's only anecdotal evidence... or, there might be a correlation but no proven causality... Use your HEAD! So meanwhile, we have normal people who smoked pot (instead of, say, going to a bar and having a few drinks) IN PRISONS, and we have normal people going through a tough time (re divorce, re death of a loved one, re war, etc.) who were prescribed SSRI's IN MENTAL INSTITUTIONS... What a nightmare!

people don't commit suicide

people don't commit suicide when they're at their lowest, they usually do it when they start coming out of depression. it stands to reason that people who take anti-depressants, which bring people out of depression, would correlate with more suicides/violence.

deacon's picture

and then,

there's the ones who have a fight from within themselves
maybe it is days,months,or years,they have fight,a constant
disagreement within their own mind,a like there might
actually 2 minds fighting over the the same territory
that territory being the their own bodies
one part keeps repeating over and over with increasing
authority"you need to are worthless,you are causing
your loved ones great pain,you need to die.
and the self preservation,the other part is screaming non stop
and ever increasing fervor and volume "you are just as important"
"do not do this""your life has meaning""it has purpose"
now mind you,this might have been going on for quite a while
one side has to win,if only to shut to the other side up
this also might explain the murder/suicides,that unending voice
has been quieted,and then they realize what they did as wrong
and can't deal with they did

Leave an indelible mark on all of those that you meet.
OH... have fun day :)

According to Jefferson College, PA and Hamburg University

research SSRIs cause programmed cell death of the cells of the frontal lobe, the thinking part of the brain. Essentially, these drugs, notably Paxil and Effexor, as well as Xanax, etc., destroy the neurons.

There is loss of the mass in this part of the brain. The axons become corroded and kinked. Deadly, deadly drugs for the takers and, often, anyone their paths.

henry9's picture

This is becoming absurd!

Did you even stop to think these guys where on meds because they had been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder?

Get real! There are a lot of crazy people who live normal lives and do not hurt themselves or others because of proper treatment.

deacon's picture

do you ever stop to think

then forget to restart?
there are countless kids put on this crap.
their counselors at school help in this
thousands upon thousands,millions upon millions
on these types of drugs,with a few things in common
they are bored and antsy in school(they learn nothing
of importance,hence the boredom)
the school system does not want or like free thinkers
(ones who can and do, think for themselves)
they think out side the box,coupled with the fed gov mandated
lack of education,this helps breeds the need for more and
more prescribed this crap
and maybe just maybe the state steps in(at gun point,they have no problem in this area)and force their will upon the parents of these kids
your comment,
"There are a lot of crazy people who live normal lives and do not hurt themselves or others because of proper treatment."
question,what happens to normal,bored kids,ones who have not even figured out themselves, let alone life are put on these drugs?

Leave an indelible mark on all of those that you meet.
OH... have fun day :)

Did you ever stop to think

that these drugs send otherwise functional people over the edge?
Have you looked into this? Or are you just using commonly accepted knowledge to support your arguement?
This is a sincere, non-hostile question: Did you get your flu shot?

There are a lot of people who smoke, yet don't get lung cancer.

Yet the gov't requires the label "Smoking Causes Cancer" to be placed on each pack. Why the double standard in the case of these drugs? Shouldn't they also have the warning "This drug causes homicide and suicide"? I mean if for no other reason, just to be "Fair and Balanced".

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
