Some Kind of Mad

Holy Crap! What is in the water to cause all these shootings in the last 48 hours? It takes some serious mental illness issues to just walk into a school and stab/shoot your soon-to-be ex-wife. For the love of Pete, what does it do to 11-year-old children to see a man walk into their room and stab/shoot their teacher?

Thank you President George Bush and Gov. Matt Blunt for cutting those unnecessary services that help treat and provide support for persons with mental illness. It was the right thing to do. All those people with mental illness didn’t really need it. Brittany is just a faker. Michael Layne was just weak. I’m sure Christ is quite pleased that we have cut those services just so we can have lower taxes. Lower taxes, you know, is all part of the greater Biblical plan. It’s right there in the book of … of … oh it’s not there at all. So much for family values. Screw the poor and call it Christ. Good for us. Good for us. At least I am getting that rebate check soon.

Skinny Kitty would like to remind everyone that mental illness is a real illness just like diabetes or cancer, it is treatable in most cases, and that most persons with mental illness are not dangerous. She points us all to The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for more information.

This is obviously a tragedy. Humans are unfortunately very capable of eschewing rationality and letting anger, jealousy, and resentment build until they feel that another human doesn't deserve to live. In fact, after reading the article, no one mentioned mental illness.

With the divorce rate as high as it is today, I can't imagine the Police actually being capable of preventing something like this. Anyone who has been cut apart from their spouse by a divorce is in trouble of becoming depressed and enraged like this. It's not mental illness, it's called tragedy, and some people are more capable of remaining rational through the event. Human beings only have so much capacity for stress and hardship. They often get pushed over the edge and snap.

I can't believe you would blame politicians for this. Do you hold your particular brand of politicians to the standards of an all knowing God like this?

Why can't people realize that the Government cannot solve these problems? There is no Government that can protect you from this. The government cannot eliminate poverty, it cannot heal the sick, and it cannot make anyone a better person. It's up to you to reach out and offer them a better philosophy and way of life.
