America's Real Deficit Crisis

Commented May 3, 2013 at 08:17:12 in Healthy Living

“Wonderful, wonderful post. The crazy thing is that people under stress are the first to cancel their therapy appointments because they are going to run late. I'm always telling them that if they can''t have more time in their lives, they will always need therapy. But it is easier said than done, and rather than curl up in a ball when exhausted at the end of the day, second shifters have to do the dishes. Because nobody else will. I didn't wear a watch either, until I started doing this thing, and am 30 years into it. But I'm still time affluent. It is in the head.”

“No one in their right mind would cancel a therapy appointment. Oh, wait...

I'd never cancel my appointment. It's the best time I spend all week.”
How We Can Prevent Another Steubenville

How We Can Prevent Another Steubenville

“Fact is, sexual assault prevention educators are on most major campuses and they do rail against drinking, and they don't blame the victim. What parents need to do, before sending Jane and Eddie off to college, is make it incumbent upon them to attend the awesome orientation presentations that so many of the universities and colleges in this country have to offer-- rather than go to the bar that day. In fact, make them report back on what they learned. Or what? Second year's tuition, that's what. We'll put it to a better cause.”
The Pursuit of Happiness

The Pursuit of Happiness

Commented Mar 4, 2013 at 21:30:10 in Parents

“But what about that saying, You're only as happy as your saddest child? Does that mean you only have as much meaning as your most meaningless child? I sure hope not!”

Democratic Scorecard: The Lizard Brain Wins Again!

Commented Mar 12, 2008 at 15:07:24 in Politics

“I think it's disgusting when candidates do this (play the negative emotions). Like we don't have enough to worry about.”
Police Investigate NIU Shooter's 2 Sides

Police Investigate NIU Shooter's 2 Sides

“I'm really surprised how little people really know about schizophrenia, an illness that hides until it can no longer stay inside. This poor young man had a lot of pride, but you can be sure, he heard voices and the voices said, Buy guns, shoot them all, they're all scum, and you are too, shoot them, then shoot yourself.”

Where is Diogenes When We Need Him?

Commented Sep 20, 2007 at 08:18:45 in Media

“Really decent liars have no problem with the polygraph, they don't express the arousal. But maybe this voice tremor thing. We're always on the look-out for that in therapy. But again, it doesn't mean a person's lying necessarily.”

What Can Brown Do for You?

Commented Aug 30, 2007 at 07:45:51 in Media

“It's amazing, the networks like this, failure idea, brown or not, the truly boring-can't read-anchors. Witness CBS early show in Chicago, with a fabulous reporter, truly animated with personality, who anchors only on Sundays if we're lucky, and wooden trees the rest of the week who could really use another Starbucks.”

Tricky Currents' Greet the Women of Business

“What a great piece.

Isn't it true that some kids just love to gamble with family relationships? And some parents get right into the game.”

“As long as we're talking mental health, Sunday/Monday night football tends to take it out of you and doesn't do much for marriage, either.”

Anorexia: Wired Like Asperger's?

Commented Aug 24, 2007 at 08:07:27 in Healthy Living

“Absolutely fascinating stuff, and I'm sure now we'll see a plethora of new dissertations linking disorders to genetics based upon the very template the APA suggests.

The future portends patients demanding money squandered under the microscope and traditional individual and family therapies will be eschewed as children/women gets even MORE out of their systems.

Munchausen-esque, I feel. The likelihood we'll lose a few in the process is my running hypothesis.”

How Would America React to Another Depression?

Commented Aug 22, 2007 at 08:31:24 in Politics

“We're American. We can handle it. Maybe it would be good for our children, I know that's a crazy thought.

But people come in with their kids for therapy and they complain, "All he/she wants is an I-phone, a this, a that, nothing else matters but THINGS."”

ImmanuelGoldstein on Aug 22, 2007 at 12:41:43

“You sound like those people who think abusive 'brat camps' are where we should be shipping uppitty kids. I don't think a real depression would be 'good' for anybody, and would be worst of all for America's kids.”

Blaming All Americans for Bush's Debacle in Iraq?

Commented Aug 21, 2007 at 08:46:39 in Politics

“We're all feeling guilty, hypnotized by fear, and wish we could have simply voted Bush out by referendum. A recall, of sorts. The is it 2008 poster's day is near, and what have we?”

Learning to Loathe Yourself: Peggy Noonan and How To Be a Conservative Pundit

Commented Aug 21, 2007 at 08:20:04 in Media

“EASY to criticize, but her voice and her writing, her emotional hook, is very seductive. It's the first thing I read in the Weekend Journal, and probably the first thing most people read in the Weekend Journal (if they're female).

We love how she speaks. I personally hated her last post, thought that although the point (parents are the original hypnotists) is correct, the leap to there's a new wave of terrorists and you better watch out, basically, WE'RE DOOMED, did nothing for my need for hope and optimism.”
