Don't matter if your Democrat...
Crazy is as crazy does.
Schizophrenia and psychosis have no party affiliation. These conditions are equal party offenders.Now if someone could just alert the media and our elected officials.
I have watched with much sadness these past few days the unfolding of the unspeakable tragedy that happened in Arizona. The fact that it happened at all was sad enough--but the actions of our media and the comments of our elected officials (on both sides of the aisle) have been atrocious. How does one make this political?
Jared Loughlan is, by all appearances, a very mentally disturbed young man. I don't know a lot but I know what crazy is. As a matter of fact, I specialize in it! Mental illness does not excuse one of the consquences of their actions by any means.
If we're going to debate or fight over anything, let's start with the sad state of mental health care in this country. Have you ever noticed on your health insurance policy (and that's IF your lucky enough to have one) how much it covers for mental health care? You'll probably notice it is much less and limited than routine medical coverage. And for most people it's not really a problem, unless, of course, you or a loved one are unfortunate enough to be stricken with mental illness. But, I guess, that is a rant for a different day.
I guess what I'm trying to say here is that in the face of tragedy, it would be nice, if for just once in a while, we could pull together as a country--as Americans.
Because after all, that is who and what we are.
In my own humble opinion...
Blessings of peace & all that is good,
"If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men" Romans 12:18
