Murders, mental illness linked

April 28, 2013

A clear link exists between mental illness and many mass murders. Adam Lanza, the young man who massacred children and educators in Newtown, Conn., was known to have had some mental health problem....

Their are two versions and definitions of socialisms here. The correct version which you two fail to understand and the right wing version which is twisted to fit your opinions. Good luck with that. You have tried it before and it failed. Why not uses facts for a change. I don't believe you have ever been in the real world, dusty. You are full of your biased opinions and void of everthing else, especially facts.

Unless you wingers have come up with a new definition for socialism, you premise does not add up. Oh, that is right, you make it fit anything you want to justify your comments.

DustOff, I'll just take your line and say "free speech" all the way.

It seems elementary to me that if a gov't owns shares or stock in a company, that means it has some leverage in that company, like the other stockholders.

In addition to its stock ownership power, the gov't could bring to bear all its own resources to benefit that company it's made an investment in, including regulatory or legislative benefits.

Some might call that crony capitalism, but a purist would perhaps pessimistically label it "incremental nationalism."

I think I just coined a phrase...

From michiganradio . org...

"The U.S. Treasury held a 22 percent stake in GM on December 19, 2012.

"Since January, the agency has sold 58,392,078 shares of GM stock at an average price of $28.04 each, reducing its GM ownership to 18 percent.

"The Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), the federal agency created to oversee the TARP bailout program, estimates that the U.S. Treasury's remaining shares would have to be sold for $82.21 apiece to break even on the GM investment. That would be a staggering increase from the average $28.04 per share in the first quarter of this year."

After reading your blog trying to define social programs from Obama, it is no wonder you write your crap. Amazingly stupid. The auto industry was not nationalized. Good lord, don't you understand anything? Lehman brothers??? Guess it does not make any difference to you that Lehman's bankruptcy, etc occurred under Bush. AIG??? Have they not paid back their "Loans". United Airlines bankruptcy did not hurt anyone??? what about the Creditors who were not paid. Not one of your examples are even close to factual.. You are such a liar.

Could you please expand on these socialist policies that Obama has brought forth that you foam at the mouth about. I believe that all the social programs you talk about have been in existence throughout both Republican and Democratic administrations... But, you live in your dream world and tell us again how you don't watch fox ,hannity, Oreily, or listen to rush, glenn and such. I love to hear you bloviate about it.

I do believe the republican party is running scared over this gun control issue. Nine out of ten Americans have spoken. Now those who oppose are beginning to feel the backlash,the NRA is spending millions trying to defend its rhetoric, the people have had enough!! Who are these senators representing?? This will not be forgotten..

Billdoesnteverknownothing, is your last blog about the issues or is it about you? You really think that foreign countries are listening to me???? I thought they were following you so that they could have some laughs. Do you think that I just gave up government secrets??? Boy, I just looked them up on the internet... So, according to your thoughts,(hahahaah) the other countries did not know about this... Hmmmm. Maybe it was like Bush I and his secretary of state, Baker, who advised Bush II not to invade a soverign nation without provocation because there was NO exit out of the country. But the Republican war machine wanted to kill people for the good of their financial benefactors, the war machine manufacturers. You present no factual evidence for your mental wanderings. Get back on your meds and take care of yourself. We don't want to lose any of you(dusty,loco, or billwillnever). You three are the best laughs on the net.

One thing Veritas forgot to cover...

Wikipedia sez "Egocentrism is characterized by preoccupation with one's own internal world. Egocentrics regard themselves and their own opinions or interests as being the most important or valid. Self-relevant information is seen to be more important in shaping one’s judgments than do thoughts about others and other-relevant information. Egocentric people are unable to fully understand or to cope with other people's opinions and the fact that reality can be different from what they are ready to accept."

My guess is that many online posters suffer from this malady, perhaps more than would be willing to admit or accept it.

Billreallyreallydoesntgetitoreverwill has no clue on this. Is it because you listen to the usual haters and your hatred abounds. Anyone who has researched the data knows that the Russians have put in sophisticated anti-aircraft deterrents and so an aerial assault would be costly. We don't want to put boots on the ground so there is another option. But, we could be Bush supporters like you and say they need to be invaded. After all, we have a precedent for invading sovereign nations, don't we. You know nothing. Responsible people are tired of Republican war mongering for the benefit of the war machine corporate landscape. Oh, and people are tired of your hate and lies.

Dusty, calm down, you will have a heart attack and your medicare will have to kick in. After all you have ONLY posted 40 times out of 71. And goodness, the anger you are displaying is bad for your health. We don't want to lose you on the blog. You provide entertainment for everyone. Keep on ranting but please take your pills.

Veritas, I didn't realize that you were talking about Nancy Lanza. I thought you were just talking....

My point stays relevant. The gun didn't shoot her. Her son pulled the trigger to shoot her.

What about the help that Nancy Lanza needed for her son? Is it any easier now for parents to admit their disturbed children for treatment?

Veritas, I liked DustOff's expansion of your screenplay.

:-)

Here's mine...

Nancy, the imaginary ******e, sounds like a girl who cares. It is too bad that a trigger was pulled on the gun that shot the .22 caliber bullet that took her life.

Now, for clarity's sake, is someone going to name that person who pulled the gun's trigger? Or is the gun (in reality, an inanimate object) supposed to take the lead in this play and shoot itself?

Veritas, lunacy, as well as beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

At least I haven't told people to shut up.
