Kindergartner's Psych Evaluation: The New Norm Under Obama's "Mental Health Parity?"Submitted by McWilly on Tue, 01/22/2013 - 14:15
It begins! ABC News has a story up about a 5 year old girl who was suspended from her class for 10 days and ordered to have a psychological evaluation because she brought a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun to school and wanted to have her and a friend shoot each other with bubbles. The school says it was a “Terrorist Threat.” Let me type that again. Suspended for 10 days and ordered to have a psych evaluation…for paying with a toy the way it was intended to be played with. Psychological. Evaluation. Terrorist threat.
It would be easy enough to write about the absurdity of America and the culture of fear we now live in, where this could somehow be considered a threat. The fact that a teacher reported this, then an administrator in the Mount Carmel School District were mentally incompetent enough to order a suspension and for a little girl to be psychologically evaluated merits its own lengthy post. However in light of Obama’s recent Executive Orders (EOs) this story takes on added weight.
As I wrote previously, Obama’s 23 Executive Orders held within them a very pertinent theme: the hijacking of the mental health industry through Obamacare, with Doctors turning into stoolies and the government now in control of what the definition of sanity is. I’m not saying that this story is an immediate example of these EOs being put into place, but it certainly is an indicator of where the wind is blowing.
