    SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - This year’s election season has been very intense and has taken a mental toll on many. According to the American Psychological Association, 68% of Americans say that the 2020 presidential election has added significant stress to their life. The APA says this is a large increase from the 2016 presidential election, only 52% said the same thing. Dr. Chippy Ajithan, the Mindful Cardiologist, says when you feel yourself becoming stressed, you can do breathing exercises to help. “The breathing technique does it takes our sympathetic nervous system ...our brains are spinning. It brings it down and...

    Democrats’ response to the continuing round of urban disturbances makes one think that, yet again, they will snatch electoral defeat from the jaws of victory... Many of Mr. Trump’s policies deserve criticism, but this isn’t one of them. Democrats are presenting a pro-chaos caricature of themselves, which will discredit them with the public if they maintain it. Especially at the local level, elected officials must recognize that a majority of Americans want to live normal lives without threat of violence or harm.

    Tolerance for criminality and political sabotage has led America into one of it's darkest moments in decades. Do we have the will to unite once more? Are we at war? Did we pass that invisible line beyond which the country cannot hold? After everything the Democrats and the media have put us through since the election of Donald Trump, is it even possible to imagine peaceful reconciliation and common national purpose?For a majority of Americans, the answers to those three questions are as obvious as they are dispiriting. That so many believe the country has fallen, is falling, or will...

    Subtitle: Machiavelli on the Greatest Sedition - Whisper Campaigns As opposed to formal charges from a prosecutor, in which the accused has constitutional protections at his disposal, the accused in whisper campaigns typically finds little relief. High school girls are notorious for their vicious whisper campaigns against other girls. Long before social media, these terrible women, terribilis mulieres, made life so awful for their victims that even in old age, few forget the misery.

    Pope Francis: Church Must Learn to Abandon Old ‘Traditions’ It is a mistake for the Church to try to hold onto old traditions or to have clear answers for everything, Pope Francis said Thursday. Jesus intentionally omitted telling his disciples many things so that the Church would learn to renounce the desire for clarity and order, the pope told participants in the 21st general assembly of Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s global charitable outreach.

I am sick at heart watching my country descend into a sort of hellish, and mindless agitation and turmoil.

    October 26, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – Apple CEO, Tim Cook, said in a CNN interview this week that being gay “is God’s greatest gift to me.” While mainstream and gay media are greeting Cook’s statement as breaking news, the Apple CEO made precisely the same declaration exactly four years ago when he penned a ‘coming out’ article for Bloomberg Technology on October 30, 2014, saying: So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.Steering away from controversy, Cook avoided answering interviewer Christiane Amanpour’s question about the level...

    As Hillary Clinton makes the rounds to sell her book on any television program or venue that will have her, it becomes clearer and clearer that by electing Donald Trump, the country saved itself from certain disaster. So, why is no one saying what is patently obvious? Mrs. Clinton is a classic narcissist. She has narcissistic personality disorder. ThereÂ’s a reason narcissists donÂ’t learn from mistakes and thatÂ’s because they never get past the first step which is admitting that they made one. ItÂ’s always an assistantÂ’s fault, an adviserÂ’s fault, a lawyerÂ’s fault. Ask them to account for a...

    The 2020s could be a “decade of disorder” for the oil markets as the lack of drilling today leads to a shortfall of supply. Demand will continue to grow, year after year, and shale will not be able to keep up. It may be hard to envision today, with an oil market suffering from low prices and a glut of supply. Falling breakeven prices have drillers still churning out huge volumes of shale oil, with production in the U.S. already rebounding and rising on a weekly basis. The tidal wave of shale, however, is the direct result of extreme market...

    PHILADELPHIA — Protests outside of the Democratic National Convention turned chaotic and veered into violence Tuesday night in Philadelphia, with at least one fistfight breaking out... Vincent McGrath, a 56-year-old retiree and Hillary Clinton supporter, was sitting on top of a Camaro convertible holding "Blue Lives Matter" and Clinton signs. Several protesters went right up to him, middle fingers extended, and hurled insults. "Get a job," McGrath responded... A Philadelphia police officer on the scene, and one of the protesters' legal advisers, both said at least four arrests had been made by nearly 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, though the Philadelphia...

    Yesterday we discussed the new disorder plaguing white middle class Americans: Empathy Deficit Disorder (EDD). Today I thought I would pursue one of the root causes: Snowflake Syndrome (ϟϟ). The latest outbreak of ϟϟ - at Seattle University, Matteo Ricci College School of Humanities - has been documented by the Daily Caller and, as the saying goes, requires a special kind of stupid. A brief summary: students at the Matteo Ricci School of Humanities took over the Dean’s office and demanded that the Dean be fired and all of their demands (which are ample) be met. Chief among their demands is an order...

    For most people becoming blind would be a living nightmare - but for Jewel Shuping it was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled. Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself - by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes. According to Jewel, her fascination with blindness began early in childhood. She said: "When I was young my mother would find me walking in the halls at night,...

    The former psychiatrist in chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital is pouring rain on the Bruce Jenner “Call Me Caitlyn” parade that’s sure to have the former Olympic athlete’s cheerleaders steaming. Not only does Dr. Paul R. McHugh consider changing sexes “biologically impossible,” he thinks being what is popularly called “transgender” these days is actually a “mental disorder.” McHugh, who has authored six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles, made the statements in a piece he penned for the Wall Street Journal that argued surgery is not the solution for patients who want to live life as the...

    Pope Francis has admitted that he has "some nerve problems" which require treatment as well as various neuroses. See here. A neuroses is defined as, "A relatively mild mental illness that is not caused by organic disease, involving symptoms of stress such as depression, anxiety, obsessive behavior and hypochondria." Now, I would never make light of another person's mental illness or disorder. There but for the grace of God go I as Saint Philip Neri once said.

    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) contended that claims that police brutality protesters chanted "we want dead cops" are "a slander against Black people." This is despite video and audio evidence that appears to verify the claim. "To my ears, these protesters are saying 'we want dread cops,'" Rangel maintained. "Some of us may not have the strongest skills with the English language or be very good with our elocution, but in my heart I can't believe that my people would call for bloodshed." In Rangel's view it makes more sense that the demonstrators were calling for "dread cops, because dreads are...

    American society is currently in a dysfunctional state, and like all things dysfunctional, it will implode if not addressed very soon. We live in a world that contains a vast amount of knowledge, but little understanding. The United States has not experienced extreme tyranny, but it is headed in that direction. The shift of authority from private sector to public sector has created a serious imbalance. As a country, there is great arrogance. We take for granted that we will always be the land of the free. Like all civilizations prior, we’re moving from liberty to totalitarianism and it’s...

    Gene Robinson, recognized as the first openly gay bishop in a major Protestant denomination, has called on Pope Francis to change the Roman Catholic Church's official doctrine that defines homosexuality as a disorder, arguing that such a teaching is "the basis for discrimination, rejection and violence the world over." The Vatican has repeatedly said that Pope Francis is not seeking to make doctrine changes, however. "If Pope Francis is to be believed in all the kindly pronouncements of his first year (and I do), his good tone should be followed by the tough work of changing the systems of belief,...
