“(God bless gay marriage, by the way—maybe FINALLY someone will bring some taste and style to the costuming of this silly ritual).”

From one of her other blog posts. This chick is more messed up than her kid.

Nice of WP to pick some obscure blog to divert attention and add to the confusion.

There are evil people in this world.

Some of them are very young.

It would be wise to defend yourself against them by arming and preparing for their inevitable assault.

It would not be wise to disarm.

Americans are under no obligation whatsoever to disarm.

Does she realize what she is doing to her other children by having him in the house?

Which begs the question how do we fund them, Federal or State or Both, and how in G_d’s name do we start it with the dysfunctionality in Washington unwilling to re-invent any program, merge, cut or outright eliminate them? Especially Medicare, Medicaid, “Part D” SSI and or any other Department or Function?

Other, wiser ones than myself, have noted that mass killings were non-existent prior to the closing of the asylums.

Several weeks ago, The New York Times Magazine section ran a brilliant article on child psychopaths/sociopaths and the research that scientists, doctors and psychoanalysts are doing on them. They are trying to help them when they are very, very young to curb them from a life of violence.

In the article, there was no one mention of guns. But in today's NYTs, it's all about guns, guns, guns. Major disconnect at that newspaper.

Why would you appoint Bill Clinton (who arguably has his own mental health issues) Czar of Mental Health? That’s just about the most worthless suggestion I’ve heard in this whold debacle.

Can’t we just pass a law that bans mental illness?

Going to have to institutionalize some people. I know of a woman in Austin who called me about business on the phone. It became apparent very quickly that she was unstable to the max. Ended up in a three-way on the phone with the woman, her mom and myself. She told her mom that she the daugher) was"...God, you're not God." and some other things which I will not detail here, but would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up if you heard her say it the way she said it.

Told me her name was which was one name and after she removed herself from the call, her mom told me her real name was something else and that was just one personality she had adopted recently. Mom's tried to get her committed, but can't because the daughter is adult age and has to commit herself.

She is living in the general population, is a severe drug addict according to mom and is going to hurt/kill someone or herself before too long and the police department where she lives, although notified, can do nothing about it. Welcome to the United States of Stupid America.

In the olden days (when I was a kid) a youn boy who acted like this would be spanked in public by any nearest parent

And most of the times I learned my lesson - and stopped doing it

A few weeks ago, Michael pulled a knife and threatened to kill me and then himself after I asked him to return his overdue library books.

There was a good reason our ancestors built their houses with secure attic or basement rooms.

Yeah, that was my thought too. I really feel for this woman. Commiting a loved one is a horrifying decision to make, kind of like “Sophie’s Choice”, but sometimes it has to be done. The alternative is that everyone loses.
