    I’ve had two incredibly personal stories involving people were on SSRI’s starting at a young age for ADD that grew into adulthood, and I’m telling you, if you had been there to see how they felt about them, to hear their story and read the last letter one of them ever wrote, you would recognize that it really is an incredibly dangerous cocktail.

    I had a coworker that kicked them in his thirties after being on them his entire life because he was a Ritalin kid.

    He said during that process he could understand why people snap. That if he hadn’t been warned by his doctors, and understood exactly what they were saying, he would have snapped. He was not shy and was very open about it because he knew he had to be. During his weening process he described how anything could set him off into a fit where he would plot and plan in uncontrollable rage. He went into details openly as part of his therapy, and his honesty wasn’t a pretty picture of the drug. He’s convinced the drug is dangerous and he had been on them since he was 12.

    Think about it. These drugs are hooking people on pharmaceutical grade speed. Nancy Reagan told us to Just Say No to that; and I assure you, no Reagan, Bush, Kennedy, Clinton, or Carter ever put their kids on these drugs. No, they think those drugs are for us and raise their families to avoid them. We should too…

    And if you want Orwellian, read what the mainstream says about the side effects:
    http://www.webmd.com/depression/ssris-myths-and-facts-about-antidepressants?page=2#1

    ***
    It’s true that taking an SSRI changes the chemistry inside your brain. This causes subtle changes in the way you feel, act, and behave.

    But you just might like the new you. In one of the few studies measuring personality changes in response to antidepressants, those taking SSRIs felt more emotionally stable, outgoing, trusting, and assertive, and less hostile.

    Bottom Line: Treating depression with SSRIs may improve your mood, outlook and behavior so that you no longer feel depressed or anxious. This may reveal your true self and not your depressed or anxious self.
    ****

    SSRI Myth or Fact: SSRIs Are Addictive.
    SSRIs do not cause addiction in the way cocaine, tobacco, or heroin do. After a period of exposure to SSRIs, however, the brain does adapt and get “used to” the medicine. For this reason, you shouldn’t stop taking an SSRI suddenly without talking to your doctor. After completing treatment, most SSRIs are tapered before stopping, and the brain readjusts,

    This is true, but for some the drugs tilt them further over the edge. Just read the side effects:

    http://chriskresser.com/the-dark-side-of-antidepressants

    Although these drugs are generally considered to be safe by the media and amongst medical professionals and patients, a close look at the evidence suggests otherwise. Antidepressants have serious and potentially fatal adverse effects, cause potentially permanent brain damage, increase the risk of suicide and violent behavior in both children and adults, and increase the frequency and chronicity of depression.

    It is well-known that Prozac produces anxiety and agitation, so physicians often prescribe a sedative (typically a benzodiazapene) along with it. Since recent studies have shown that antidepressants cause gastrointestinal bleeding, doctors are starting to prescribe acid-inhibiting drugs such as Nexium to prevent this side effect. These drugs also inevitably cause side effects, which may lead to the prescription of even more drugs.

    Perhaps the best known psychological side effect of SSRIs is “amotivational syndrome”, a condition with symptoms that are clinically similar to those that develop when the frontal lobes of the brain are damaged. The syndrome is characterized by apathy, disinhibited behavior, demotivation and a personality change similar to the effects of lobotomy. All psychoactive drugs, including antidepressants, are known to blunt our emotional responses to some extent.

    “I do mind giving my life for a food fight for political reasons between two groups of people who should be able to work it out like adults.”

    Sir, I’m sorry, but in America today, we call this progress.

    It’s sad, I know. Good luck, and remember, we’re all in this life boat together. It’s not just your life that progress is threatening, it’s ours too.

    Monk, I assure you, this won’t matter one tidbit to the iZombies. I’m already placing bets a few burn some flags out of iPatronage to the forbidden fruit. The mark of the beast has never changed, and it doesn’t even hide behind a logo. The Apple fanboyism represents everything wrong with America. The same people who hang out in coffee shops with iPads are the same people who bitch and moan about drones killing kids in a war over cheap oil; they read all about it from their favorite iToy manufactured with plastic, a cheap oil product, by twelve year olds in a sweat shop that are constantly hearing the thud of fellow laborers and bunk mates leaping to their death.

    If they don’t care enough about that to drop Apple, I don’t think they will care enough about a burning flag.

    Fanboyism is the worst thing that ever happened to this country, and now it has an apple as its logo leading the charge of the iZombies.

    “At that point in time, you and he/her are not equal under the law.”

    Stalin would be very proud of you comrade.

    Awesome! http://goicerays.pointstreaksites.com/view/goicerays

    Go Ice Rays!

    Maybe I can move after all!

    “Texas students shouldn’t lose instruction time for holding gun-shaped Pop-Tart snacks at school,” Guillen told the Houston Chronicle. “This bill will fix this.”

    GTFO Mr. Guillen, you have a stupid bill that will fix stupidity???

    I got a lesson for you, Mr Guillen. Using stupidity to fix stupidity is in fact stupidity. That also means I’m saying you are stupid, now GTFO of Texas Mr. Guillen, she’ll be better off with out you.

    I really need to move but I really love Florida. The Corpus Christi area is similar right? They have any sort of hockey there?

    Also, the DC Beltway snipers. Look it up people and start weening your spawn off these meds. Never forget that these drugs were originally designed to be given in a sealed mental institution to simulate chemically what electro shock therapy does physically. Research it and you’ll see.

    Yep, check my posts on Aurora and Newtown, I’ve been saying the same thing for years. From Columbine to Fort Hood, from Aurora to Newtown…every time some form of SSRI’s and MAOI’s have been involved. Media will report on the brand of gun, the caliber of bullets, and the store where the guns were purchased; but in order to find the type of meds, their dosages, and the doctors that prescribed them or the current cycle or changes in cycle you have to really dig to find that information. But in every case these meds have been involved. Don’t expect the up votes this post deserves. These drugs are seen as far too convenient for parents of children getting C’s in math for people to actually open their eyes to the dark side effects and dependency these drugs can cause.

    What if I’m on high alert to any form of touching?

    I mean, if we are all equal before the law, and tapping an officer on the shoulder to get his attention gives the officer the right to tackle and subdue someone don’t I have the same right?

    By those standers we’d all be subduing each other constantly. Unless of course the law is applied unequally, then I guess it would be okay for some and not for others. I wonder how that amendment to the constitution would read? Mind telling us RabidPatriot?

    And state legislatures should appoint their federal senate representatives; other wise the federal senate is just the federal house version 1.1.
    If our federal government were analogous to the gizmo industry, currently the house would be the iPhone 4 and the senate the iPhone 4s; when the founders intended the senate to be an android tablet.
    That’s why there’s no term limits in the senate… If a state legislature wanted term limits on the federal senate each state could do that on it’s own. In fact, I would think that a state could amend it’s own constitution on a ballot to makes it’s own term limits on its own federal senate representatives; and to hell with what other states do…

    A molotov cocktail and a mazel tov cocktail are two very different things; but both involve broken bottles when used at weddings so I can see why he got’em mixed up.

    Shut it down. Please, God, shut it down. Nothing would be better than a federal gubmint shutdown.

    If this happened, I would name the failed bill the “Santa Clause”, because it’s what I asked for Christmas -a federal government that finally collapses as a result of it’s own greed.

    By Glenn’s definition, the Gruber fella should be the person of the year.

    “The American voter is stupid” tells the story of 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008.

    Maybe he should be the man of the decade.

    My take:

    His wife or girlfriend demanded he attend a soiree because they never do anything she likes.

    They go, he gets asked a question and figures that since he’s a famous Toronto athlete the subject must be a famous athlete of some sort so he makes stuff up. Seems about right.

    Yes, JRook, the guy that lambastes religion but is the first to define what sin means in his narrow world. I’d be a miserable broken man if I lived with the paradoxical philosophy you spout on here, JRook.

    Seriously, you’re warped; can you see that?

    “There are TWO types of hunters: the ones who hunt for food and actually eat it and use all they can from the animal, and the barbaric, blood thirsty gun lovers that only want to shoot a beautiful animal to get a picture and a trophy,”

    Wow, I thought the left hated such stereotypes. I mean, isn’t the above quote like saying, “There’s two types of Muslims, those that want to live peacefully in harmony with their prophet and deity, and those that want to behead and take their picture next to the dead carcass of an infidel. So Obama’s thoughts of Muslims were only half wrong.”

    It seems the left’s love of hypocrisy trumps their aversion to stereotypes.

    “They didn’t have a choice once they were called to the scene.”

    Famous words of a lot of dead and guilty Germans.

    Just saying…

    In the end, just like a generation of Germans, the officers did have a choice, and so do we, and those officers chose to side with the gestapo rulers.

    They could have taken Glenn’s advice.

    Do not comply.

    We are no longer in the Weimar stretch, welcome to the machine. It seems the Fourth Reich has risen, and it is us.

    We see a man strangled in front of the world for not paying tobacco taxes and we allow ourselves to formulate reasons as to why it was justified and allowed by our law. I’m sorry, I do not believe that is justice, and if our laws say it is just, that there’s no culpability for this man’s death, which the law just did, then our laws are flawed beyond decent morality before man and God. I can not find it in my soul to reason with this. The fact so many Americans can is how I know we are not the glimmering city on the top of the hill, we are Babylon and surely the fires of God are coming because, unlike our laws, God is just.

    Revelation 17 comes to mind at times like this.

    We got Ferguson right, this one, not so much I’m afraid.
