Hes a Grand olde party, AR15 owning republican to the core but had no problem pointing out that Reagan's dismantling of the mental ill infrastructure for a good portion of our societies criminal problems.
And while off topic, how sane is a guy suggesting that insurance companies provide care for mentally ill people. I mean, call me crazy, but how the f*ck is a crazy person who needs treatment, going to get a job to pay for insurance, to get treatment so he can get a job so he can get insurance to pay for treatment so he can get a job.
Its not so much crazy, as utterly fucking stupid....or in that case, callous, uncaring, and by definition un-Christian.
That's just half the problem, the other half is how many people we call crazy these days. We've upped the sales pitch on insanity. We now make it so easy to be insane, and profitable. I had an Indian friend in uni in Kansas, he came back with ADD and a prescription that cost $150 a month in Kansas. My sister never took drugs and now they have her hooked on some pill. To see people comparing their pills in the states might be like how people compare fighting cocks in Thailand. I've seen all kinds of drug addicts and those pill poppers are on some funky shit. How the f*ck do we expect people to be sane after telling them they crazy and provide them with a daily mind altering drug?
