Placeholder It's Your Call

In agreement

You could walk into any restaurant, or bar, or place of business, or even probably a church, ask a question, and you would get four or five different answers to that question if you asked 15 to 20 people. But it’s odd that every time some vote comes up in the City Council or the school district’s Board of Education, it’s very strange they always have a unanimous vote. That’s not possible. You’ll get somebody once in awhile who might vote no against something, but it’s very rare. The thing is that out in the public life, it doesn’t work that way.

Truth in advertising

I think the Made With Uncommon Character program is successful in St. Joe. I’ve been driving for Lyft and Grubhub for the last two years and every time I come down Eighth Street or Frederick Avenue, I see a lot of uncommon characters. Keep up the good work, everybody.

Time for limits

I noticed in the paper that Stan Herzog had passed away. And I had met Stan over the years and he was a very nice guy, and his family was very nice, also. But I also noticed in the article it said that he was a major donor with the Republican Party. And I couldn’t help but think that’s part of what’s wrong with the political system right now. You have these donors who give millions of dollars, and when they give these millions of dollars, they expect something back; and they usually get back more than what they gave. Until we have some kind of limits on what people can give, or give through these PACs that they start, the country’s going to suffer because there’s way too much money in politics. Whether it’s money that goes to Republicans or Democrats, they both take way too much money.

So obvious

Other countries have video games and people with mental illness. What these other countries don’t have is mass shootings. Stop deflecting the blame. The United States has 4 percent of the world’s population, yet we possess 80 percent of its weapons. The problem is obvious, and it has us in its cross hairs.

Smaller and smaller

Saw on the news that the school board is thinking about consolidating facilities. Before it’s over with, they’ll close some more schools. At least our taxes might go down instead of going up this time.

Good old lyin sleepy Joe. He's the gift that keeps on giving. Vaj can't say this one is a slip of the tongue. https://ijr.com/joe-biden-parkland-shooting-gaffe/?fbclid=IwAR3v1l9UFwK2nhhylrc8VR3gWuGPPeZ9IX_OsDWpYpQ7T_jgkaDwtJ6ktKM

Sociallyunacceptable

Vaj it's a known fact that starting with Columbine, the vast majority of young shooters are on anti depressants. The very same drugs your "profession" pushes on parents that either can't or won't deal with their children.

aj0201

My profession doesn’t push meds at all. I rarely make a recommendation for psychotropic drugs. But mass shootings predate Columbine. Also, all kinds of people take psychotropic drugs who DONT commit mass murder. In fact, the vast vast vast majority don’t. But, you’re thinking of a different profession than mine.

Sociallyunacceptable

The vast majority of people taking psychotropic drugs might not commit mass murder but the overwhelming majority of youths who commit mass murder do. And while not all mass shootings in the past involved drugs, it increased ten fold with the advent of them.

B4

Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it's not the weapons used.

https://www.ammoland.com/2013/04/every-mass-shooting-in-the-last-20-years-shares-psychotropic-drugs/?fbclid=IwAR36GJRyvLw9kRjJYNegQnDiXmCczpc1SeYp9zzrT4CU3F4sSDclKoJufLo#ixzz5vanIKJxr

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.



Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain pharmaceutical companies that suppressed the information, show that SSRI drugs ( Selective Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors ) have well known, but unreported side effects, including but not limited to suicide and other violent behavior.

aj0201

No

Psychiatrists can prescribe meds. I believe Psychologists & Counselors cannot. Psychos run for Democrat office & are end-users of such psychotropic medications. [whistling]

Joe Biden vows to increase the number of immigrants in the US



Democratic hopeful Joe Biden promises Iowa voters that if he's elected there will be a flood of immigrants into the U.S.

Are you anti immigrant?

Sociallyunacceptable

While he might not be an immigrant, society is changing for the worse with the increasing numbers of them coming here.

Sociallyunacceptable

I misread but I will still answer your bs question. Nobody is anti immigrant but they should come here legally like the ones before them. I work with several Mexicans that are very resentful that their families took the time to come here legally versus the exodus of illegals that are here now.

He might as well have. He was sounding a 'dog-whistle' to Liberal voters who want open borders... [huh]

There's been a study and it says that people who have had dealings with the Clintons are 800% more likely to die of "suicide"

It sure seems odd that Epstein was taken off that suicide watch just as documents were being released. It's also odd that they kept Manafort on very close watch because they thought they could squeeze him like a lemon but you watch. He'll be dead within a month of being sentenced because he didn't give the democrats what they wanted.

They harm far more people than occur in mass shootings. The guns that segment uses are mostly purchased on the underground market and unregistered. 99.9% of gunowners legally register their guns and do not harm anyone
