Suicide Line

A joke from my uncle that was too good not to share…

WHY I’M DEPRESSED

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Obama has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land! I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc . . . I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was then connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck……

MSNBC: A woman posed as a physician and duped at least two other women into undergoing breast exams at her hands in Boise-area nightclubs, according to police.

I saw the title (of the above cited article), which does not mention a woman was doing this.. so now I am not sure if I am more baffled or not. With a man doing it, he is a perve & the women are idiots. With a woman doing it, I imagine she is a lesbian, and just wants a free thrill?

Oh but it gets better… She’s a he, well was a he, and now he is a she, sorta. He /she is a transgender.

He/she was noted as a guy when he/she was busted for petty theft. Previous record as a man, but identified his/herself as a she, and was booked into a women’s prison.

The gender on documents had shown “MTF” (male to female) but shouldn’t that really say “WTF” (you can figure it out).

So if a man changes to a woman, and fondles women, is he a pervert or a lesbian?

I have no issue with gays, as long as they are regular people.. it is the extreme people (Like those who do the s&m sexual acts at gay-pride parades.. it would not matter if it were guy & girl or same-sex, certain things should be kept to yourself.. with the gay-pride parades doing those acts in public, it gives gays a bad name, bad impression.. so extreme people, cut it out, thank you!).

Now.. back to the issue.. transgender. I have wondered about this stuff, and every time a transgender pops into the news they are murdering someone, are murdered by someone, or committing some crime. Just to clarify, there is a difference between a cross-dresser & transgender.. the person dressing up typically is just having fun, the other is serious about their identity issues.

With transgenders, they have to pursue a life of deception. They have to convince themselves they are not what they were born as, and then have to continue to convince everyone else about this too. So.. the result ends up a seriously confused individual with some serious psychological ramifications. Or did they start off with psychological problems, and then opt to change sex? Third option.. both, they are confused and just further confused.

The story I have shared is a perfect example of that deception and confusion.. this person, does not know if he/she is a he or she, this person does not know if they are gay or straight. This person has been so wrapped up in deception that he/she has committed criminal acts, and then impersonating a physician, and then duping women into letting him/her examine them.

Another thought on all this, on a political note.. is this what will become of health care? Will people have to turn to bar-room examinations? Yike!

MSNBC: two mummified infants found in a steamer trunk wrapped in 1930s newspapers… The bodies were inside two leather doctor bags in a trunk that also contained ticket stubs from the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games

Evri: There were books, antiques, an iron, girdle, nurse’s uniform, letters and postcards — and the bodies of the two babies.

The story has more chapters too.

Summary of her travels… Janet M Barrie, was born in Scotland in 1897, her family moved to Alberta Canada, she is noted in the 1930s census to have lived in Los Angeles California. She returned to Alberta Canada, but then back to the US She returned to the US in 1941 claiming Dr George Knapp as her sponsor.

Dr Knapp’s wife died in 1964, 86-year-old Knapp married 67-year-old Barrie. (Knapp died 4 years later). One article mentions the family suspected an affair between Dr Knapp & Barrie, and expected they would marry after Dr Knapp’s wife’s death.

So who is the daddy? One thought was that Dr Knapp could have been the father of the babies found wrapped in newspaper. But the newspapers were from the 1930s, there is the point where in 1941 he sponsored her to come back to the US. So did they know each other back in the 30’s, she then became pregnant and then fled back to Canada?

It was a different time.. but there have been cases in recent decades of teens ditching their babies in trash cans, hiding them in dresser drawers, closets, backpacks, etc. Now we have tv shows that seem to be making it “ok” or to be “proud” to be a single and or teen mom. Tough call on which is worse.

Too often when a child grows up with one parent, or a teen parent.. they do not turn out terribly well. They had an immature role model to start off with, no doubt they grew up with resentment and or neglect.

The flip side of raising an unwanted child, are abortions. The problem expanded to how late (term) they would be allowed. Instead the laws should not be expanding how late a woman can have an abortion, but not allowing her to use it as birth control alternative. Abortions should only be in the case of medical necessity or rape/incest. Not oops I forgot, or I did not want to use a condom, or some other issue of ignorance.

In my family nearly every generation the 1st born was a 8 to 10lb “pre-mature” birth or a “miracle” birth (since when conceived their “father” was on a ship in the ocean, or in another country). The shame and secrecy still lingers.. to mention it puts various relatives into a fit.  I am very sure my family is not the only one with these twisted little family tree branches.

The reality, children are going to no doubt be born out-of-wedlock, in some other scenario.. but it does not have to be the accepted norm. It also should not be the shame that previous generations were shunned into, and led to those stories later surfacing from someones genealogy research.  (or for this woman, the keepsakes she left behind).

The concept of having children is not new. It should be no surprise to anyone over the difficulty of raising children, the expense, and the responsibility that goes with it. So how on earth do some people get to the point in their life where they are apparently, completely clueless about all these well know facts? Where is that missing element that connects these facts to people?

The woman in this story may have hidden the embarrassment of being a single mother, the shame of being the “other woman”, or maybe she was completely psycho. Now it has surfaced, there are even more loose ends & speculation about her story. If these babies were born in the 30’s, since she was born at the end of the 1800s, she would have been in her 30s, she was also a nurse. So she really should have had some clue about the risks she was taking. So that, for me, adds to filling in the blanks with twisted storylines.

I am not a smoker, never have been, never will be. So I am not up on the latest warnings and such. Today I saw some info on new cigarette warning labels, at first I thought it was a joke. Then I visited the FDA website.. and wow.. the new proposed cigarette warning labels are unreal.

I think the idea of using the images just is more confirmation that people simply do not read instructions, warnings etc… and or they simply do not care. Do you think the images will make an impact?

Addictiveharmfullung disease
cancerkills

There are many more.. those are just a few of the concepts. Visit FDA Cigarette Warnings for more info.

For me, seeing this scare concept, I wonder what else the gov’t will try. I guess it is not really new, when you think about to the old don’t pollute, and wild fire commericals. Fear is a huge selling tool, for and against.

I do not think any one under the influence of any substance should be given a second chance. Any person who has a license should know the rules of the road, they accept the responsibility of the privilege to drive a vehicle. So there is no excuse, there is no reason. Just like there should be no second chance for a murderer, rapist or child molester but that is a whole ‘nother rant.

Drunk driver, repeat offender…Driving 83mph in a 45mph zone, and the offender even states it was foggy conditions, receives free of charge assistance to sue the victims!!

This offender’s license should have been revoked before this child he killed was even born (well 1999, but surely his license should have been revoked before the note of 1999 incidents)… this “accident” should have never occurred. But he has the nerve to sue the parents, blaming them because their teen was not wearing a helmet while on his bike. He obviously does not take responsibility for driving nearly twice the speed limit in bad weather conditions, nor his drunk driving offenses.. but he blames the victim. He does not “realize” a helmet would not save this child from the impact of a vehicle driving 83 mph.

MSNBC: saying he’s endured “great mental and emotional pain and suffering,” wrongful conviction and imprisonment, and the loss of his “capacity to carry on in life’s activities.”

What about that child carrying on his life’s activities, wait he can’t, that has been taken from him. What about the pain and suffering of the parents who lost a son, and the siblings who lost a brother? Who has actually be wrongfully convicted and imprisoned in this situation, the family who has to hold this pain for the rest of their lives, and on top of it continue to be attacked by the man who killed their child! This criminal is getting off easy!

When my brother was 13 years old, he was hit by a vehicle, while he was on his bicycle. Nearly every bone in his body was broken. The woman who hit him, tried to sue for the anguish she endured watching my brother slam into the windshield of her car. She also had the nerve to go to the hospital and try to push the issue, while my brother was wrapped like a mummy. She also added the anguish of seeing him in the hospital like that.

My other brother was in his early twenties, when a vehicle hit his car with such impact that it sent his truck into a house, knocking it off the foundation. His side window took his skin off his skull, he had to be rushed to shock trauma. The woman who hit him also tried to sue for her anguish of seeing my brother shredded from the accident.

What on earth makes a person who causes an accident, decide to sue the victim? What is going on in their head? What is wrong with a legal system that would allow an offender to sue the victim?? Not to mention the offender being able to sue free of charge, while the victim has to fork out money to protect themselves, again??

How old would you guess this woman is? My first thought, mid to late 40s. Nope… 26, so boys & girls, this is what drugs do to ya.
Born loser
Is that not enough?… ok lets see how well-adjusted this woman is… Her (latest) story is how not to clean your baby. This moron tossed the baby in the washing machine.

Somehow this woman has other children who have survived having her as their mother. We can also say “kudos” to child welfare, as her family members fought to keep this woman from having another child to neglect, but their effort was declined. Another “kudos” to our pathetic excuse for a court system, that has given this woman a slap on the wrist, she was only charged with neglect. (Do note my “kudos” are flat-out sarcasm).

The death penalty is tragically underused. This woman is a prime example of someone who should be taking advantage of such punishment! I do not see a point of maintaining (paying for) the lives of murderers, and she murdered her child. I do not accept excuses like mental issues, or drugs. If you do not have control over your own actions, regardless of substance or otherwise, you will surely have that problem again in the future! So why do we maintain the lives of such wastes of air?

NY Daily News: Lyndsey Fiddler, 26, was high on drugs when she put her newborn daughter, Maggie May Trammel, in the washing machine along with the dirty laundry and started a washing cycle, NewsOn6 reports.

I guess it is official, California has seceded from the US.

In America, Americans should be allowed to display the American flag. Sounds simple right?

So why would a little boy be told he must take the American flag off his bike?
The claim, because of racial tension. Since when is displaying the American flag, in American, considered a racial thing? If there are people who are in America, and are offended by the American flag, they need to leave.. now!

Fox40: 13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was told to take it down.

Another issue.. why is the child who is displaying the American flag being scolded by the school? Why isn’t the school looking for those who have the issue, and finding out what their problem is (and perhaps confirming they are illegals and need to be stamped return to sender).
