Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is undergoing a fundamental transformation that much everyone knows.
But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer stress of living in todays America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression and self-destruction. Consider the following trends:
Suicide has surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of injury death for Americans. Even more disturbing, in the worlds greatest military, more U.S. soldiers died last year by suicide than in combat;
Fully one-third of the nations employees suffer chronic debilitating stress, and more than half of all millennials (18 to 33 year olds) experience a level of stress that keeps them awake at night, including large numbers diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorder.
Shocking new research from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that one in five of all high-school-aged children in the United States has been diagnosed with ADHD, and likewise a large new study of New York City residents shows, sadly, that one in five preteens children aged six to 12 have been medically diagnosed with either ADHD, anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder;
New research concludes that stress renders people susceptible to serious illness, and a growing number of studies now confirm that chronic stress plays a major role in the progression of cancer, the nations second-biggest killer. The biggest killer of all, heart disease, which causes one in four deaths in the U.S., is also known to have a huge stress component;
Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are currently taking SSRI antidepressants those highly controversial, mood-altering psychiatric drugs with the FDAs suicidality warning label and alarming correlation with school shooters.

Top radio talker Rush Limbaugh recently picked up on this normally unspoken aspect of Obamas modus operandi: I think he wants people to snap, opined Rush. I think Obama is challenging everybodys sanity. Obama [is] literally pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country.
Obama is powerless to affect me in any meaningful way.
All part of the plan to keep us disoriented
Barry and the ‘RATS’ plan is working just as planned. The phony, banana republic style “election” we had last November really screwed a lot of people up in the head. A lot of people in this country are really depressed.
Yet in 2012, only 6-7 people became mass killers. The FBI defines a mass killing as any single event where 4 or more die, excluding the perp.
Hang in there— the devil ALWAYS overplays his hand. The pendulum swings to the opposite direction too. The roots of deceit can never last.
Passive aggressive people will make people snap.
Not me. I’m becoming more... focused.
“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for everything” and I’d say Obama’s plan for “Fundamental Change” is working well for him.
That's not a "snap" it is surrender.
I know people like this.
As a culture, we have thrown out the living God. As a result, we are without shelter and meaning.
At any time, we may freely repent and return, and God can heal us. If we don’t, expect more confusion.
Has anyone looked at the relationship of the huge increase in the prescribing of psychotropic drugs (Ritalin, Effexor, Xanax, etc) and the increase in the suicide rate of people taking them?
I must be pretty tough, been pissed off for over 50 years and haven’t snapped yet.
“...Suicide has surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of injury death for Americans...”
Of course car crashes are down because the Baraqqi Depression has greatly reduced miles driven.
Maybe it’s time to offer free handguns for self extermination!!
Lets face it. Collectively, we’re pu$$ies. Life is risky. Life has always been risky. And right now, life is the least risky its ever been.
I seriously wonder sometimes what the people who conquered the west, moving to unknown places with nothing more than a wagon, their meager possession, and a hope for a better future, would think if they could see us. Probably disgust and amazement at how we’re afraid of our own shadows.
