Did Thelma and Louise count as suicides or car crashes?

Republicans take note.

If this demographic is rising, they invariably vote 'rat almost exclusively.

Give a man a ride to the polls, and he'll vote demoncrat for a day.

Give him a ride in a hearse, and he'll vote demoncrat for eternity.

Suicide is increasing in the Obama nation? Considering that Obama is as the angel of death, a demon of desolation...
He's the ideal head of the RAT party, a veritable Satan's workshop of plague, perversion, and profanation.

"'Prevention strategies can focus on individuals, families, neighborhoods or entire communities to reduce risk factors.'"

A good first step in prevention would be to vote Obama out in November. That would have a more dramatic effect on these numbers than any combination of individual strategies.

My understanding has always been that there is a direct correlation between the price of gas and the traffic fatality rate.

You all laugh when the military is having an epidemic of suicides. If anything, suicide is under-reported. Especially among the elderly.

I love sarcasm, but just can’t do it in regards to despair, Satan’s most prized weapon.

There’s no rationale for known suicides to be up only 15%, but greater increases in things like poisoning (from increasingly bizarre drug use?) and falls (more elderly, more drug use, etc.) to be attributable to suicides.

Poisoning and falls are a separate category of accidental or unintentional deaths, not suicides. Probably due to an aging population, greater use of prescription medications, maybe more older folks living alone etc.

I prefer to call it “obamacide”. That is basically what voters will be doing if they put “him” in for another 4 years. “Nobody sees the wizard. No way, no how.”

Obviously suicide. The victim repeatedly stabbed himself in the back before jumping off the bridge.

U.S. traffic fatalities soar 13.5 percent in first quarter of 2012

They won't say why, but it's partly because of leftists, motivated by size envy, have forced more Americans into smaller cars.

‘Suicides are terribly under-counted,’

I often wonder what the real story is when I read an obit in the local paper like this...

“John Doe, age 40, died at his home this week...”

***There’s only one rational solution: Outlaw Suicide! /sarc ***

Reminds me of a line in the movie A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM with ZERO MOSTEL.

A young man tries to commit suicide and is warned by Zero...”It’s against the law in ROME to commit suicide! The penalty is death!”

Wow it took 25 comments before someone didn’t treat this as a joke. Both my Mother and my Uncle commited suicide but neither was recorded as such, so yes I think suicides are underreported.
