Military And Veteran Suicides Rise Despite Aggressive Prevention Efforts

Military And Veteran Suicides Rise Despite Aggressive Prevention Efforts

Commented Sep 2, 2013 at 20:26:13 in Impact

“Let's face it, a lot of people have done things over there that are incommensurate with living a guilt-free life afterward. This part of the problem is never addressed. I have no job and no prospects and very little to look forward to, but I've never shot at civilians either (or anyone else).”

elitepoms on Sep 2, 2013 at 22:35:59

“It doesn't matter what was done over there. You were there for our country. That's all we civilians who live peacefully in America need to know.”

“But given a battlefield order to shoot at said targets is the tragedy here. It's not as though the guys assembling IEDs are wearing the same uniforms.”

DrinkerOfTheRye on Sep 2, 2013 at 21:13:36

“Probably never had civilians shoot at you or plant roadside bombs to target you either.”

“Yeah? And real men don't shirk their responsibilities. If he wants to poke around, fine, but not as CIA director.

I once had a high security clearance. I was amazed at the things they dug up - people and places I had long forgotten. I asked the man what they were really looking for - his answer: "Hanging out with communists, and doing something that can put you in a position to be bribed or blackmailed." Petraeus did just that, as HEAD of the CIA. The man is a complete bastard and an utter incompetent.

“This is why people hate snarky liberals (I'm a standard issue sarcastic liberal low on snark). Yes, it was stupid comment. But she went on and on making fun of a man who nearly lost his wife in a plane crash. Maddow is repellent - a smug loudmouth who, given her voice timbre, would be advised to tone it down. She's no better than Limbaugh and in some ways, even worse.”

“GOOD GRIEF....

at NO TIME was MS Romney in ANY danger ....

and Dr Maddow deals in FACTS not hysterics ..... or outright lies

and if you WATCH THE VIDEO - he was not making any sort of joke....
he said that not having the ability to open the windows was a SERIOUS problem”

“You think this is unusual? Most military people would be comfortable with fascism. It's their life. Veneration for troops as an abstract thing is the absolute certain way to land yourself in tyranny. Jefferson was opposed even to having a standing army! The American tradition was one of citizen soldiers in time of necessity. Not any more. Wake up!”

“What a pile of idiocy. Separation of church and state was introduced into American life by Thomas Jefferson and supported by James Madison and is enshrined in Amendment 1 for a damn good reason - they both realized that precisely people like you would attempt to force their views on other people and thereby subvert freedom for all. Here's the text of it - "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Do Olympic Swimmers Pee In The Pool? 'Nearly 100 Percent' Do, Says Former U.S. National Team Member

Commented Aug 2, 2012 at 08:18:40 in Sports

“As usual in our math-averse world, a little common sense and arithmetic calms all fears.

An Olympic-sized pool holds 660,000 gallons of water. Let's say the average volume of pee is 1/2 pint. No let's be generous, 1 pint. That's 1/8th of a gallon. So you would have to pee 5 million times to fill up a pool. Seen another way, a single episode is diluted to the tune of 1 part urine in 5 million of water. I guarantee you, the density of bug parts in your morning cereal is higher than this. And, the water is continuously recycled and chemically treated.”

“Naturally the simplistic answer is the favored one. Well, I say you repeal the 2nd amd. if this is what you want. But of course, the real problem is a narcissistic society wired together with drugs, fatburgers, celebrity, and violent entertainment, and how do you propose to change THAT?

Guns aren't the problem. Canada has as many guns per capita as we do. Insanity, American insanity, the mind-warping, artificial, venal culture we created, is the problem.”

There is a lot of false drama in this video because you can't compare lateral and longitudinal motion due to foreshortening. The main interest is that the Boeing wing is much more stable than the Airbus wing in a crosswind.”
