A quote from Thomas Jefferson seems appropriate at this point:
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away every thing you have."
...And that includes your mental health and well-being.
In the nanny state, everyone's dependent; and sooner or later, everyone's a victim, after all. But you can take back conrol of your mental health:
Real mental health in America starts with the congressional elections of 2010 and reaches its apex in 2012 when Americans will have a chance to finally end all of this nonsense.
RECLAIM YOUR MENTAL HEALTH ! RENOUNCE VICTIMHOOD AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE !
BTW, I wonder where Uncle Sam did his Psychiatry Residency? One can hope that it wasn't someplace inspired by Soviet or Quranic Psychiatry....two variants of the atrocity known as "State-sponsored" psychiatry.
UPDATE: Meanwhile, Barney Frank (!!)accuses the GOP attacks on him "a psychological disorder I am not equipped to diagnose." .
Now that's an interesting comment coming from arguably the most dysfunctional and incompetent Democrat in Congress--and that is saying a lot. Frank can flail around and project his own dysfunction on whomever he wants, but he can't hide from the fact that his role in bringing about the current financial crisis was significant.
Frank reminds me of the psychotic patient who, unable and unwilling to confront his own delusional system, reflexly asserts that it is everyone else who is out of touch with reality. Now, imagine the inmates running the asylum, and you will understand what "nanny state" psychiatry is all about.
