  1. I am the first to admit that I am spoiled beyond belief - but at least I admit it. I'll just bet you have it pretty cushy too . .
  2. The crabster is just being stupid on purpose - that is his MO Nobody ever said that PTSD was only combat related. He might feel guilt about wasting our time if he were capable of that emotion . . . . . . which I and the Miracles will second . .
  3. One of our local candidates declined to answer the question, and I told him to remove the sign he had in our yard. He did so - I'll give him that much credit . . . Seriously ASK THAT QUESTION
  4. Fortunately for us, you are not among that august group. We include a large number of great souls . . https://www.veteransforpeace.org/who-we-are/vfp-advisory-board You are not fit to shine their shoes
  5. You may wish to vote for fascists - I will not do that.
  6. You don't know what you are talking/writing about . . . and have a very strange idea of what constitutes "healthy". It is a fact, whether either of us agrees with it or not, that post-combat troops (especially those who have harmed civilians, opposing troops, or troops on their own side) have extremely high rates of PTSD. Just because YOU do not feel it, does not mean that sane people do not. It is a FACT that guilt plagues many veterans . . https://jmvh.org/article/post-traumatic-stress-disorder-and-killing-in-combat-a-review-of-existing-literature/ Here is a no
  7. I guess I could have been more clear: In our town city commission candidates are "non-partisan". They do not run under a party label. I'm trying to help ferret out the stealth extremists. And lots of people would consider voting for GOPPERS, but not extremists who subscribe to the Big Lie.
  8. Just posted this on a candidates' info site. Feel free to pass it on . . (I'll let you know how it works out . . ) S______town voters have a right to know about the commission candidates' ability to discern truth from fiction, and whether or not they are extremists. One question for all of them: Did D. Trump legitimately lose the 2020 election ? I will not vote for ANY candidate who refuses to answer this question.
  9. Mentally healthy folks experience guilt . . those who do not are often monsters.
  10. The CDC screwed up Covid testing royally, and caved to Drumph way too much. This is per Michael Lewis's Pandemic which I just finished
  11. It has been shown that psychopaths, feeling no guilt, don't have much trouble with PTSD. Looks like you have little exposure to Irish or Jewish mums.
  12. But how do you tell who the R-words are ?? They often go stealth mode. So I just now tried this for our city commission election . . . I'll let you know how it goes. Sandusky voters have a right to know about the commission candidates' ability to discern truth from fiction, and whether or not they are extremists. One question for all of them: Did D. Trump legitimately lose the 2020 election ? I will not vote for ANY candidate who refuses to answer this question.
  13. I'll try to ignore that Tom . . . In my experience, Notre Dame was a place of tolerance and open discussion - I used to take students there for an excellent undergrad conference. The Kellogg Center and the campus as a whole were very gracious hosts. Clearly, something is amiss at ND
  14. We welcome them as long as they don't pull a Sinema . . . she campaigned on issues that she now opposes - like single payer
  15. Guess that I should add that, though the Colonel was right, he chose to use intemperate language that was not going to accomplish anything. He also exhibited a strain of grandiosity which didn't help either. As I wrote above, lots of us in Vets For Peace are pretty tightly wound and/or wrestle with PTSD. In fact, a lot of us use our VFP activism as therapy - a way of partially dealing with our guilt.
  16. Yeah, thanks for doing that . . But you still have not answered why THAT PARTICULAR instance of school misfeasance was worth posting . . ???????????????????????? And how do you know what the motive was ?? Answer: You don't
  17. Interesting article - thanks for the post. Comments are good too. Not too much sympathy for Willis
  18. Right now I'm reading Michael Lewis's "The Premonition" about the Covid Cassandras . . They are very tough on the CDC, Drumph, and for-profit health care. Lewis spins a good yarn
  19. Knowledge of history is essential - if you doubt me, just ask George Orwell.
  20. I also never knew until I was well into adulthood that the word "slave" is derived from Slav . . and refers to the massive number of Eastern Europeans captured by Vikings and sold down the river as slaves around the Mediterranean. A lot of US black folks don't know this either. Slavery has been by no means always connected to race.
