Lara Logan: I Have PTSD From Sexual Assault In Egypt

Lara Logan: I Have PTSD From Sexual Assault In Egypt

Commented Jan 24, 2012 at 05:55:01 in Media

“Kind of like, she shouldn't have been wearing that outfit. How are men supposed to control themselves when American women have the audacity to walk down the street. If they are attractive, they are asking for it, right? There has been a blatant downplaying of sexual assault going on recently. Most women are encouraged by police to go home and keep their mouths shut; surely they don't want to have to defend themselves against a man in a suit and tie blaming them in a courtroom. This stigma being placed on the victims is disgusting and needs to be stopped.”

“Thank you Senator McConnell for your smart @ssedness. You just inspired me to write President Obama, again. This time I was sure to tell him that I am tired of the Republicans questioning the intelligence of, not only the American people, but of my President, with their ridiculous pandering. I also asked him to remind you who the adult in the room is. I'm sure I wasn't the only one.”

“If Perry gets the nomination, he will just outright refuse to debate President Obama. He did it against Bill White this last election cycle. He also refused to disclose the amount that our budget was estimated to be short for this current year, so from the outside our budget looked great (to those who refused to know any better). He also enjoys using our National Guard troops for political reasons, deploying and pulling them back of the border when election cycles come around, so that he appears tough on immigration. I could go on...”

“I find it quite interesting that the screams stopped immediately after the gunshot...immediately. Also, how could Zimmerman scream that loud if Martin was covering his mouth and nose with his nonbloody hands?”

“Yeah the whole covering his mouth thing has been proved false I believe. Zimmerman is not that credible of a source apparently.”

“Him being cleared to deploy means nothing. My sister in law is in the Army, having served one tour in Iraq. Since her return from Iraq, she has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and was being properly medicated by her non-military psychiatrist. When the question of her being cleared to delpoy came up, the military sent her to a VA psychiatrist to place her onto medication that she will allow her to be cleared for deployment. Since this occured, her bi-polar disorder has become completely unmanaged, as the new prescription drugs are not the proper mix to regulate her disorder. Even with her being a complete mess every couple of weeks, she will be cleared to deploy when the time comes, because her meds are approved. My family finds this outrageous. I don't see why it is a good idea to send people who are obviously mentally unstable into a war zone, to pose a risk to not only themselves, but everyone around them.”

“I live in rural Texas, and understand that laws are definately in favor of hunters. I have had bird shot go off over my head, hit the trees above me, and rain down to the ground around me, when I was no more than 20 feet from my home. The above wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. Some hunters believe it is their right to shoot whatever animal they come across, no matter if it endangers humans or not. During the housing boom, they began surrounding fields with neighborhoods, but kept laws in place that would allow hunting to continue (in the least dove hunting) in the fields just behind people's homes. You remember those vacant fields near your neighborhood that the kids always used for sandlot football games? Instead of the kids playing football, imagine hunters shooting into the sky.”

“As a Texan, when I heard this news, my initial thought was, "Oh, how convenient. I suppose he won't be able to participate in this Wednesday's debate either." For those who don't know, he has never participated in a debate. I imagine his stupidity would be hard to contain in a debate format. If he gets the Republican nomination I foresee him demanding President Obama's birth certificate before he will agree to a debate, and then be unsatisfied with the copies that have already been provided.
On another note? Why does the media refuse to follow up their mention of the Texas jobs "success" with the facts? The majority of those jobs are low wage and offer no benefits. Texas has the highest rate of uninsured citizens in the nation, and one the poorest education systems. After many years of being told that the tax dollars earned from the sale of lottery tickets would go to education, he went back on it and put all of the money into a "rainy day fund." Then refused to allow access to it this past legislative session when our education system was in dire need of financing.”

“DMN has been doing a terrible job lately. Last week I noticed these 2 awkward front page issues. The day after the Norway attacks, the front page was an article praising a local preacher (that could very easily fit right into that Christian extremist category) for bringing congregants back to the church by adopting a more extreme worldview when he took over; the next day was the story of the shooting at the local Skating Rink. The accompanying picture? A crime scene clean up employee with a smile on his face, right in front of the poor 11 year old's Happy Birthday sign. Lack of sensitivity, or dense?”

“I believe I have recently stumbled upon this answer in my shopping around for cable/ satellite service. I live in a rural area, and only have a couple of cable providers to choose from. All providers include Fox News on their base plans, but not MSNBC. In order to get MSNBC, I would have to order one of the top 2 tiers of service options. So, Fox News is literally available to far more people than MSNBC.”

“One the reasons for msnbc not getting as many viewers as Fox, is very simple. Fox News is, unfortunately, made available to far more people. I was recently shopping around for cable and satellite companies, and every company's basic plan offers Fox News. You only get msnbc if you pay for one of the top 2 tiers of service plans, if the company offers it at all.”

Perhaps he does not realize that these people are all of voting age. When people are told their opinions do not matter, it tends to push them to speak to someone to which their opinion does matter.
