You may not think the two are in “common” with one another but let’s have a quick look. Do you remember when Obama made an executive order to study guns and gun violence as a disease? No? It is nothing new and many Presidents have tried to politicize the CDC and its findings. Read this to refresh your memory. Now do you remember? Okay, let’s move on. Creigh Deeds, a Virginia state Senator, had a mentally unstable son who was getting help from the state. His son was released because they couldn’t find a bed for him. His son stabbed him the next day and then shot himself. Deeds is a Democrat and pro gun. Deeds is sueing the state. Deeds is not touting gun violence. He is touting a failed mental health system and incompetent evaluators. Too many mental health facilities have been closed because crazy people have rights too. Well, if crazy people have rights and are left roaming the streets unmonitored, why are politicians (read “hacks”) trying to make gun owners as mentally ill? Oh, stop your ignorance. You know exactly that has been another one of their game plans. “No one is trying to take people’s guns”. Yeah, right.
Now with that prelude, you will understand my skepticism on the matter I am about to relay. As I have repeatedly told you, I don’t believe in coincidence and with the current “urging” for more gun control and the links I have relayed above, this is another one of those faux coincidences. I went to the doctor 2 days ago for my yearly physical. After the start of the new year, I always have to confirm that all related information on my residence, billing, and medical provider have not changed. So the first pre-printed sheet I perused to make sure all data was correct and I signed it. The second sheet told me that I was accountable for any charges not covered or paid by Medicare or my health provider. I signed that one too. The third sheet told me of the HIPA practice and receiving my sheet of information. I signed that. The fourth sheet threw me for a loop. It was 16 questions that had no bearing on the other pages. It was a questionnaire that was completely focused on one issue. Here are some of those questions:
1. Do you have a difficult time going to sleep or staying asleep?
2. Do you frequently wake up in the middle of the night?
3. Do you have bad dreams?
4. Do you not want to get out of bed in the morning?
5. Are you depressed?
6. Have you before or do you want to hurt yourself?
7. Do you want to hurt others?
8. Do you get mad easily?
9. Do you yell a lot?
10. Do you throw things when you are angry?
Are you getting the picture yet? They don’t need to ask if you own guns (yet) until they established you are mentally unbalanced. There were two fluff questions that appear to be innocuous but I’m sure that there is some bizarre correlation. The questions were:
11. Do you take aspirin? (I guess that is for all the little voices you are hearing and it making your head hurt)
12. Do you have allergies to anything? (Yes, liberals!)
This starts the process. Who doesn’t raise their voice at times when frustrated? Who doesn’t have difficulty falling asleep if something pressing like a recent death or a nagging problem unsolved, disagreement with a spouse or possibly a flight or procedure to be done? Many things keep people from falling asleep at times, as well causing them to wake. Some people’s bladders won’t hold all night. Sometimes you wake trying to remember if you locked the front door, turned off something or left food out. Shoot, I can think of innocent counters to most of these questions. It appears that we are trying to see have far and how much mental illness has transpired. Sure makes it easy for grabbing guns, don’t you think?
If we are serious on taking care of mental health then we need to be serious about taking these people off the street and re-opening and building new mental health facilities (and that would mean LOTS of facilities, especially for all the whack liberals running loose). Who am I kidding. These assholes aren’t worried about taking care of a mental health problem, which is REAL. They are only worried about a gun problem (which doesn’t exist). Remember, guns don’t commit crimes; liberals do.
