DO YOU HAVE SADNESS, MELANCHOLY, OR DEPRESSION?

Image
NPR's award winning show, 'To the best of our knowledge' does a great job of presenting a useful understanding of that feared state called Depression . This week's episode is entitled: 'This Sadness' is an excellent opportunity for you to investigate this mood, especially for those of you who've tasted it. Heal.

SEGMENT 1:Jerome Wakefield is co-author of "The Loss of Sadness: How Psychiatry Transformed Normal Sorrow into Depressive Disorder." Wakefield tells Steve Paulson how the medical profession's attempts to make precise diagnoses have led them to define emotional states as medical conditions. SEGMENT 2:Joshua Shenk is the author of "Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness." Shenk tells Jim Fleming that Abraham Lincoln never attempted suicide, that we know of, but he refers to it in a…

WAKE UP, MR PRESIDENT AND LEAD!

I don't care what they say about you, Mr. President. Your job is to lead.

How much can go wrong in the two months before Mr. Obama takes the oath of office? The answer, unfortunately, is: a lot. Consider how much darker the economic picture has grown since the failure of Lehman Brothers, which took place just over two months ago. And the pace of deterioration seems to be accelerating.
Put down the canned speeches and save the country. Krugman makes a good point. A lot can happen in two months and I am saddened to see that you have lost your enthusiasm to serve all Americans.

ANDRE EGGELLETION AND THE GREAT DEPRESSION II

Author and radio host Andre Eggelletion, appeared in the third hour of Coast to Coast Am with George Noory on November 19, 2008, and said we are already seeing a depression in many parts of the U.S. The market will drop to 7200, and it'll be a 10-year minimum before order is restored.



You can listen to Andre Eggelletion on USTALKNETWORK.COM, everyday 9am to 11am.

BILL AYERS: BARACK WAS JUST AN ACQUAINTANCE

Chris Cuomo explores the 'association' of Bill Ayers and Barack Obama on 'GMA'.



Wouldn't you know it Cuomo discovers that Bill Ayers knows Obama about as well as John McCain knows Sarah Palin. They are acquaintances.

Another thought that crosses my mind is: If Ayers is such a foul character, why didn't the justice system protect the citizens of America from him by locking him up? Then Obama would never have crossed paths with him. It would seem that the Judicial system has fail us and Barack Obama by not prosecuting this miscreant. This scoundrel. This terrorist.

So what happened? Things that make you go hmmmmm!

PRIEST REFUSES COMMUNION TO OBAMA VOTERS

The latest episode of fearmongering comes from the religious sector of the South:

During the 2008 presidential campaign, many bishops spoke out on abortion more boldly than four years earlier, telling Catholic politicians and voters that the issue should be the most important consideration in setting policy and deciding which candidate to back. A few church leaders said parishioners risked their immortal soul by voting for candidates who support abortion rights.

It's getting ridiculous. The same priest did not threaten his parishioners with the refusal of communion for the voters of John Kerry in 2004, so why are the supporters of Obama so special? Looks like the Rev. Jay Scott Newman did not get the memo: Hate the sin, love the sinner.

WHY FEMINISTS HATE OBAMA

Because he's a man and his wife loves and supports him.

Michelle's dedication to her husband is admirable (can we please stop perpetuating the stereotype that feminists hate men?); her responsibility as a mother essential (see #1); and as for her taking a "back seat," we're not convinced. Do you really think this Princeton/Harvard alum with her own track record as a community leader (as well as top-level executive) will not wield some kind of power in the White House? She's an extremely strong influence on her husband. She held a Harvard Law degree before he did. She mentored him when he joined Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, and she encouraged him to be a community organizer. Barack Obama listens when Michelle Obama speaks, and that's a pretty sweet deal for women.

It should be fun to watch feminist have fits as the Obama partnership exposes the feminist goal of gender equality for a sham.

PUT YOUR KIDS IN PRIVATE SCHOOL, OBAMA

Clarence Page on educating Obama's daughters.

The education world is waiting to see whether Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, will be sent to private school while their father continues to oppose tax-supported programs that offer a similar choice to less-fortunate parents.
Obama must not sacrifice Malia and Sasha on the altar of the American teacher's unions. Put them in the best school that you can find in Washington and then challenge the educators to rebuke our current Prussian based system of education.

REP. PAUL BROUN(GA): THINKS OBAMA IS HITLER

Image
This idiot believed the McCain-Palin's rhetoric.

“We can’t be lulled into complacency,” Broun said. “You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I’m not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I’m saying is there is the potential of going down that road.”
The next thing Broun will say, the criteria for president should exclude citizens with brown skin. Memo to Broun: it was political rhetoric, numskull.

Petition to censure Rep. Paul Broun for his reckless speech.

THE CHILDREN ARE WATCHING

In her latest article, Peggy Noonan counsels Obama on the virtue of moderation.

HOW OBAMA WILL GOVERN AMERICA

The Obama Way.
“Everybody speaks his or her mind,” he told me, “and then Barack makes the decision. After that, there is absolutely no second-guessing or looking back.”Throughout the presidential campaign kept hearing this interesting notion, the way a candidate runs his presidential campaign is his resume for the job of President. The good news for the American people - President Obama's adminstration will be highly organized and effective.

A MASTERCLASS IN DEMOCRACY

For those who don't understand that this is the World's Democracry.
When the moment came, TV panellists who had talked volubly all evening suddenly found it hard to say a word. In Grant Park, Chicago, Jesse Jackson wept. Nearby, an assemblyman from the Illinois black caucus was asked what the election meant for him. “Now I can look my grandchildren in the eye,” he said simply. “And I can tell them, if they want to, they can be president, too.” As Whoopie Goldberg said on the View yesterday, "I can finally put my bags down." God bless America...We are no longer guests in our own home.
