Before everyone goes and falls in love with the “mental health” aspect of gun control, consider that it will be the State who is in charge of determining who is mentally healthy
Florida House and Senate budget leaders have awarded Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw $1 million for a new violence prevention unit aimed at preventing tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., from occurring on his turf.
Bradshaw plans to use the extra $1 million to launch “prevention intervention” units featuring specially trained deputies, mental health professionals and caseworkers. The teams will respond to citizen phone calls to a 24-hour hotline with a knock on the door and a referral to services, if needed.
“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’ ”
In other words, American spying on other Americans, and alerting the State if someone strays from what they are supposed to say.

Hate to hear this news. A life wasted
Just got some bad news about a former friend, one who at time was my closest friend. But, that was 20 years ago, still though, still I miss what we had, and wonder where the person I was once so close to went. News like this makes you think, well, news like this makes me ponder life anyway. Nope, no details, this is personal, and even though this friend and I are no longer speaking, the news still upset me, and made me wish things had gone differently. Maybe I still love this person, maybe I am just wondering how relationships go from close and caring to non-existent. Maybe I am wondering how some people long for friendship while others cast away true friends that love them. So, time for reflection for me. And one of the best ways for me to reflect is to write on this blog. So, I guess I should write, see where it takes me
The Left wraps many things they do in the “It is for the Children” flag. But, the ugly truth is that many times the Left’s war on individualism and liberty is nothing but child abuse
PRIMARY school children are being terrified by lessons claiming climate change will bring “death, injury and destruction” to the world unless they take action.
On the eve of Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s carbon tax package announcement, psychologists and scientists said the lessons were alarmist, created unneeded anxiety among school children and endangered their mental health.
Climate change as a “Doomsday scenario” is being taught in classrooms across Australia.
Resource material produced by the Gillard government for primary school teachers and students states climate change will cause “devastating disasters”.
Australian National University’s Centre for the Public Awareness of Science director Dr Sue Stocklmayer said climate change had been portrayed as “Doomsday scenarios with no way out”.
Dr Stocklmayer said she was not a climate-change sceptic but worried that “too much time was spent presenting scary scenarios, especially to young people”.
“(Children) feel incredibly despondent and helpless in the face of all this negative information,” she said. “To put all of this before our children … is one of the most appalling things we can do to (them).
Child psychologist Kimberley O’Brien also said the language of climate change should be “toned down”.
“(Educators) should stick to the facts,” she said.
The truth is the Left is an ideology that believes that the end justifies the means. and if that means traumatizing kids or lying, or creating facts that do not exist, or intimidating people who they disagree with, then the Left is OK with it.
