I don't have any idea about the VA either.

All I can suggest is getting in touch with an organization called The National Alliance for Mental Health or NAMI. This is a grassroots organization made up of people who are dealing with family members with mental illness. My daughter has been diagnosed with major depression and I started going to Nami support groups in October of last year. It has been an enormous help. Just to know that you're not alone is an enormous help. Was your brother in his twenties when he first became ill? I ask because that's the usual age of onset for schizophrenia. My mother was schizo--affective, schizophrenic with a side of bipolar, so I know that they can be very resistant to treatment. My mother denied she had any problems. It was everyone else. Toward the end of her life she was convinced the government was trying to take her house.

Some caregivers in my group have had good results with the shots for their family members. Maybe you could tell him they're vaccinations or something. It's very difficult to deal with I know and not enough help out there. We should be ashamed that we don't do better by our veterans.

It shouldn't be a Democrat saying none of it matters.

That's for sure. Women, people of color, and LGBT, these groups are the foundation of the Democratic Party, the bulwark, the heart, the core. Its stance in support of the helpless, the old,the poor, the hungry, the homeless, that is its soul.

Personally

I don't think black people have any reason to love white people. Long(ish) story for a short question. My mother-in-law in the past few years has had to hire people to work in her home to help her take care of herself. Many of these people were black people who she went through like kleenex, talked to like curs, and treated like dirt. Now she's in a nursing home. The suprising thing is, the thing that really shocks me, is that some of the black people who worked for her ask us about how she's doing and even go to see her. !!!! Now admittedly, she also treated many white people like dirt, including me, her son, and her granddaughter. The difference is I wouldn't walk two steps to see her, I don't care how she's doing. I really don't understand how they can care at all when she was so nasty to them.

Hmm

It's really not us degenerate inbred hillbillies who are the biggest problem. Mainly we'uns lay out on our ramshackle porches with our lazy ole 'coon dogs, trying to get the rust off great great grand pappy's rifle what he carried in the Great War( and I don't mean World War I neither.) And we don't bother nobody. The ones causing the trouble would be those respectable church going, bible believing, evangelical fundamentalist Christian/Republicans who believe that Jesus was a blonde, blue-eyed Capitalist American Christian who believed exactly as they do and hated exactly the people they hate. Their only criteria for supporting a candidate is does he claim he's born again and is he against gay marriage and abortion.

Furthermore, this mindset is not confined to South Carolina. It is, obviously, nationwide. We have Niki Hayley, yeah, we unfortunately do, but Wisconsin, unfortunately, has Scott Walker.

Thank you to the one who gave me a heart.

I really appreciate it.

Going around Greenville lately, I've seen a few signs saying "Lose Lindsey."

I'd like to add Terminate Tim, and Trash Trey. And for my sister in Anderson, Jettison Jeff. Looks like I'm going to need more poster board.

Jay Stamper, Democrat, running against Lindsey Graham.



I don't know much about doing this linking and excerpt thing, but there's a Democrat running for Graham's seat this November and I think it's worthwhile to check him out and consider supporting him. There are a few Repubs running in the primary and these guys think Lindsey is not conservative enough. On Mr. Stamper's page I read that earlier this year, the SC. Democratic Party essentially endorsed Lindsey Graham, saying that he was looking out for the best interests of SC. I mean seriously, what the living hell, SC Democratic Party? I actually sent money to you guys, so you could support Republicans?

Signing up for Indentity protection due to data breech of those who efile their taxes.

I tried to sign up for identity protection through CSID. For some reason I wasn't able to complete the application on line and was directed to customer service phone number. Everything was ok until they started wanting credit card and car loan balances. They don't seem to require this information if you apply on line. So I'm asking if anyone else has signed up for this over the phone and if this was required. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Thank you very much to the DUer who gave me a heart.

Now I don't have to go see the Wizard. No, seriously, thank you. And a Happy Valentine's Day to all, filled with love and chocolate.

Thanks a lot, smart people.

Can I get extra points if I think Paul Ryan actually knows anything about budgets? Can I share this? My sister would love it as much as I do.
