    NANNY STATE: GOVERNMENT WEBSITE TO WARN OF SADNESS/CRYING OVER ECONOMY
    Mon Mar 30 2009 18:43:56 ET

    The U.S. government is set to offer an online emotional rescue kit!

    "Getting Through Tough Economic Times" will launch Tuesday with a media push across all platforms.

    The site is meant to help people identify health concerns related to financial worries.

    The feds will warn of depression, suicidal thinking and other serious mental illnesses. It will raise warning flags for: Persistent sadness/crying; Excessive anxiety; Lack of sleep/constant fatigue; Excessive irritability/anger.

    The guide will be available starting at midnight at SAMHSA.gov - Error - Page Not Found.

    Developing...

    "Look, we care, we created a WEBSITE to help you!"

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Then again, one does have to question American intelligence.

    How is this any different from the multitude of mental health awareness efforts that our government has introduced in the past?

    (Other than that this one is happening while Obama is in the White House)

    This is the best part.
    Government telling journalists how to "cover" the "sensitive issue"... and reference the same folks that funded Obama and Ayers school indoctrination program.

    My bet is it will result in more suicides.

    Special Note to Journalists

    For ideas on how to best cover sensitive issues like suicide prevention in a thoughtful and constructive manner you can check out suggestions developed by the Annenberg Public Policy Center in conjunction with leading suicide prevention experts and journalists.
    A Guide to Getting Through Tough Economic Times

    They shouldn't think of it as "suicide" but very late term abortions.


    This guide was developed by SAMHSA and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, with the assistance of:

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) (ACORN)

    The Department of Labor

    The Department of the Treasury

    USA.gov is... administered by the U.S. General Services Administration's Office of Citizen Services and Communications.
    Isn't it nice to know it takes four government departments to come up with this BS.

    What is with the influx of ****ty cartoons? These aren't even remotely funny. If we're going for "boring-yet-fanatically-conservative," let's just stick with Mallard Filmore and call it a night.

    It's not, you and CC are SOO right, it's just because of Obama. Now you guys can "Bask" in your "we're above this partisan hackery see you silly fools" glow...

    The rest of us will actually discuss this situation, and maybe have some shades of biasness going on...

    Maybe, just maybe I think it's a stupid idea? Did you know there is a 1-800-number where government paid reps are on the line waiting to help you... help you to help your child overcome fear and anxiety of hurricanes? Seriously. And it's one of the more annoying commercials on radio for it's sheer stupidity.

    Because it's Obama, I get to use the line I did about "See, we care we made a website!", that's a dig... and a right one IMHO at the attitude of O and his crew. They think if they just put on a show of caring people will think their great.

    But do carry on, you made CC smile...

    During the Presidential campaign of 1976, Democratic candidate Jimmy Carter made frequent references to the Misery Index, which by the summer of 1976 was at 13.57%. Carter stated that no man responsible for giving a country a misery index that high had a right to even ask to be President. Carter won the 1976 election. However, by 1980, when President Carter was running for re-election against Ronald Reagan, the Misery Index had reached an all-time high of 21.98%. Carter lost the election to Reagan.
