What about the 1 in 10 who go undiagnosed?

To me that is more disturbing than a bunch of drugged out nutters.

This country is owned by big pharma, they never produce cures, only treatments.

I'm inclined to agree and a bit surprised that the figures are not overwhelmingly bigger.

There is hardly any arena of civilized life that has not gone completely "bonkers" including a vast majority of Americans.

I tend to agree wit the late, great George Carlin: " When you're born into this world you are given a ticket to the insane asylum. If you're born in America you get a front row seat."

I doubt anyone actually considers me a conspiracy theorist. I am probably online less often than you.

Antibiotics and chemotherapy have saved my life a few times. Psychiatric drugs have made me more ill.

Not only does the Establishment tell us what to think and how to think it, they are in the business of telling us that what we think is out of their engineered norm. Children who can't sit still in their social engineering classes(maybe because their souls know its all wrong) are given drugs to shut em up and make them sit nicely for hours and hours. Wouldn't we feel antsy if we had to get up early and sit on buses for an hour before class, then get all cooped up in a room for hours of brainwashing to be a cog in the Statist wheel?
Kids see hours of violence, theft, sex, things blowing up, and general decay of moral values on the tv and we wonder why they are depressed?

I've watched a friend turn into a total recluse (and develop sever anxiety problems) on anti-anxiety meds, to the point he can barely deal with people anymore. Plus when I was a kid they tried putting me on ritalyn for ADD, when in fact I was just smart, curious, and had many interests. Just because I had what should have been misdiagnosed as ADHD, only difference between that and what I actually have is that I am actually paying attention to the many things I get distracted by because I am busy learning about them. Wanting to learn about everything is not an illness and this government and it's deathcare doctors can all go to hell, I've seen what their meds do to people and you are absolutely right they overprescribe these meds. They aren't doctors, they are quacks, drug peddlers.

DO NOT TRUST A HEAD DOCTOR, trust your neighbor more than you should trust any doctor when it comes to your sanity. They had doctors in germany in WW2, were they trustworthy?

I believe that you are most likely gifted in some way, and people who do not comply with the social engineering of the controllers are not given a chance.

Great post and thread. S & F. I would have thought the numbers where higher than that.
I mean going by the news. Think death by prescription drugs has already passed death by car accident which used to be the number one cause of death in America.

And death by Intl terrorists even lower least in the States

You know, you made me think of long as the medical establishment keeps drugging everyone, people will not understand that the root cause is something way deeper, and may even be caused by the terror and aggravation of the power elite itself. I mean who wouldn't get anxiety from the IRS, FBI, INS, ICE, IMF, UN, and just about any other govt installation we can think of.

posted on Jul, 21 2011 @ 02:10 PM
Well its a win/win for the establishment.

Convincing people that they themselves are mentally unstable while convincing the rest of America that we are surrounded by mental patients.

Big Pharma loves it, $$$$$$.

States with gun permit applications now prohibit gun ownership if you have had "mental care", even if you are a returning veteran with any kind of post military stress.

This latest establishment ploy also allows the propaganda networks to discount "conspiracy theorists" or anyone who disagrees with the government as a "cook" since so many Americans are "crazy".

Not surprising when you think of all the BS we ingest that they put into our food.

Stuff that isn't even proven to help food be better.

That's not going to happen, buddy. A rather huge chunk of the World is Non - White, so you are surrounded, lol.
Not only that, but if your inability to spell, nonexistant punctuation, horrid grammar and inability to compose a complete thought are any indication of the future of whatever people you belong to, your people are in really big trouble.
Just sayin'.
Go away.
Why do we keep getting these Yahoo types here?!

Add me to your list. The funny thing, is that it took more than a few layoffs, and a bankruptcy, and expired unemployment to get me to this point. Upper middle class to dirt poor in three years. So, I guess you could say, the law of unintended consequences at work...I never would have questioned the status quo with all my toys and belief that I was an insider...

Besides, who decided that your boots not lacing all the way to the top is a bad thing? I thoroughly enjoy being a little "throwed off" myself...

Yeah, I agree with you. If to be normal means fitting their description of normal, I think ill pass.

I personally feel the US would be a much better place if they just put it in the water instead of flouride. When SHTF then we will have to resort to growing st johns wort to function. I agree it is big Pharma but man without my happy pills I aint so happy. I am a stark raving hormonal crazy woman.

The proper term is "PSYCHOSIS" and not psychotic. So your post title should say 1 in 66 Americans Suffer from
Psychosis. I am curious, what is the first thing you, are anyone else on this thread, think when they hear psychotic? What type of traits would you associate to a psychotic off of the top of your head?

Edit: Actually I don't want too. The meaning of this term is a person who is capable of doing things that "normal" would not do. All I know is that being "psychotic" has its benefits.
