Americans 'Snapping' by the Millions
World Net Daily ^ | 4/21/13 | David Kupelian

Posted on 04/22/2013 4:16:08 PM PDT by anymouse

Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is undergoing a “fundamental transformation” – that much everyone knows.

But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer stress of living in today’s America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression and self-destruction. Consider the following trends:

(snip)

Commenting on Obama’s sudden obsession with employing every means possible to deny law-abiding Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, Limbaugh exclaimed: “All of this is so in our face. Everything that people hold dear is under assault. Deliberately making people upset! This is not what presidents do.”

Another day in the bipartisan, socialist, hysterical debt regime. So what's bringing the end of the world today, and who's going to survive it?

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Hysteria \Hys*te"ri*a\, n. [NL.: cf. F. hyst['e]rie. See
     Hysteric.] (Med.)
     A nervous affection, occurring almost exclusively in women,
     in which the emotional and reflex excitability is
     exaggerated, and the will power correspondingly diminished,
     so that the patient loses control over the emotions, becomes
     the victim of imaginary sensations, and often falls into
     paroxism or fits.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The chief symptoms are convulsive, tossing movements of
           the limbs and head, uncontrollable crying and laughing,
           and a choking sensation as if a ball were lodged in the
           throat. The affection presents the most varied
           symptoms, often simulating those of the gravest
           diseases, but generally curable by mental treatment
           alone. Hysteric




How Dramatically Did Women's Suffrage Change the Size and Scope of Government?

JOHN R. LOTT Jr.
American Enterprise Institute (AEI) (download links for whole document at bottom of page)

September 1998

University of Chicago Law School, John M. Olin Law & Economics Working Paper No. 60
Journal of Political Economy, Vol. 107, Number 6, Part 1, pp. 1163-1198, December 1999

Abstract:
This paper examines the growth of government during this century as a result of giving women the right to vote. Using cross-sectional time-series data for 1870 to 1940, we examine state government expenditures and revenue as well as voting by U.S. House and Senate state delegations and the passage of a wide range of different state laws. Suffrage coincided with immediate increases in state government expenditures and revenue and more liberal voting patterns for federal representatives, and these effects continued growing over time as more women took advantage of the franchise. Contrary to many recent suggestions, the gender gap is not something that has arisen since the 1970s, and it helps explain why American government started growing when it did.

O has divided this country as no one has previously. His goal to make whites pay for all of his perceived ills will lower the entire country to the lowest common denominator.

We are so screwed.

People "snapping" by the 1000's all over the country is a "great" way to start conditioning people to martial law. Except I don't think zero and his minions will call it that. Even a lot of libs will be caught off guard when we all suddenly realize we are living in martial law without it being declared.

Obama is a very evil person, and he has a lot of evil people working for him.

Police perform house-to-house raids in Watertown MA ripping innocent families from their homes. This definitely isn’t the kind of America that the Founders had in mind. Perhaps the terrorists are to be feared less than the Feds.
But where is Congress?

Well no kidding? Is this breaking news?

The government looted social security, spent the American treasure on compassionate wars and reckless foreign policies, they made American citizenship all but pointless, our borders are and endless conga-line of people who spit on our laws/rules, they imported hundreds of thousands of Muslims and government's desire to control, tax, regulate and create endless new laws........Well..

Lets just say this isn't your parents America anymore.

I don’t think ‘bama thinks of it that way. Your typical Chicago street punk USES other people to make money. That’s what he is. They are usually quite sociopathic which means they don’t particularly care about anything at all.

You might be intersted in this WND article. Roy Masters is featured, starting about aquarter of the way down.

“Cure stress’

“Be Still and Know” was developed by Roy Masters, who at 85 is the patriarch of stress experts, having taught this method since 1960 to millions, his fans including everyone from movie star John Wayne to Internet journalist Matt Drudge. He also hosts talk radio’s longest-running counseling show, “Advice Line,” on Talk Radio Network. The author of 18 books, Masters was featured on the Sean Hannity Show to discuss his newest book, “Hypnotic States of Americans.”

I know that his disastrous economic policies are causing a lot of people to take their own lives. I personally know of six people under the age of 45 who committed suicide over the past 2 years. I’ve never seen it so bad before. It’s a shame that so many people feel so hopeless that they take their own lives.

He has reduced many whites (and others) to the state of the permanent urban underclass; this just seemed to encourage many to vote for him again. Dey gettin’ paid!

“This definitely isn’t the kind of America that the founders had in mind.”

The Founders took up arms against a king who behaved this way. Today’s Massachusetts citizens meekly accepted searches without warrants and lockdowns in their homes (incarceration without due process of law).

Will Mr. John Adams, Mr. Samuel Adams, and Mr. Paul Revere please pick up the phone?
