Some May Suffer From
Post-Election Depression

WCCO-TV [Minneapolis, MN], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/7/2012 1:08:10 PM

MINNEAPOLIS — Once the election results are in, you might find yourself very happy or very disappointed, depending on the outcome. It may be difficult to mask how you are feeling when you are around your co-workers or people with whom you’d rather not talk politics. Dr. Linda Reiss, a psychologist in Minneapolis, said there will likely be some people who will experience a bit of post-election depression. In some cases, it extends beyond disappointment over the election results. Anger over a candidate or an issue winning or losing can subconsciously trigger

No kidding. Now I fully understand Bush Derangement Syndrome. Rush, the usual optimist, is not helping either.

Rush sums it up. "It is difficult to beat Santa Claus when the alternative is that you must be your own Santa Claus"

I'm depressed and furious. Someone just walked in my office and said "it was a vote for sanity yesterday" and I b*tched him the h*ll out. I never do stuff like that. The jerk deserved it.

I've been through some very difficult times in my life and have never been this depressed. I'm just sick. Even Rush and Ann Coulter can't cheer me up because they're near suicidal (as Ann said she was), too.

I went out and raked leaves and mowed our lawn. It felt so good to just be outside physically working off my frustrations. I am definitely sickened. I un-followed any Obama people on FB several days ago so thankfully that's not in my face.

It is the ultimate result of the election that is so depressing, the destruction of our country will now be completed by the co-potus' living in Our House. That would be ValJar and Obama.

I'll click here a time or two but that's about all the media I can take for a while. We've got a pact that no news programs will be put on any TV until after Christmas. It'll be Mentalist reruns, cooking shows, QVC to get the Christmas Shopping done and Animal Planet. Maybe dive into the stack of movie CD's now and then.

We'll use this time for reflection and prayer that the next four years are survivable.

Of course we're depressed. Something is rotten in Denmark, or more accurately, OH.

Isn't it odd that Zero won by almost the exact percentage Romney was forecast to win? Kind of like Harry Reid's race in NV last time.

I really don't care if people think this is black helicopter, look at the pictures of crowd turn out the last week for Romney vs. Obama, and read about record high turn outs in R districts, and record low in college towns and D districts. Something stinks.

Shock sadness anger emptiness. A feeling of no where to go. Just listen for God. He will be there for you. We aren't promised happiness 100% here all the time. Figure out a way to get through it. We are grieving.

I've had to shut some family out too. Is it healthy? Self preservation is key.

Everyone who's tempted to depression needs to take all that energy and use it wisely as close to home as possible. Do something positive and do it NOW! And keeping doing positive things until the bad feelings pass. If you want to do political things, then get active in your local Republican party or school board or something where you can have a positive influence. Just think how things looked to your relatives during the Great Depression with no jobs, exploding government and FDR getting four terms. We're just starting FDR's 2nd term - let's try to prevent a 3rd.

Depressed? No - just angry with the 50% of the country that is so ignorant of our history, our traditions, our sacrifices and our heritage. They are no longer my countrymen. They are my enemies; the people who are trying to take away everything I've worked, sacrificed and fought for. Some of these people were my neighbors and friends. I can't bear to talk to them anymore. I may lose one of my closest friends of 40 years over this. I may never again talk to a couple of my siblings if they bring up this election. I may feel differently in a week, but I don't think so. This was a turning point in my life. I'm not going to change the way I feel. I won't put up with them anymore.

Depressed, horrified, sickened, powerless, angry - it feels like a death in the family. It is the death of my country. If I saw someone celebrating today, I might get arrested for what happened next.

Someone suggested to me about flying the flag at half-staff - I said maybe we could take it nationwide on Inaugural day. Wanna do it?

For the last 4 years, my own personal expression/protest has been to put postage stamps that display the American flag on my snail mail upside down. I'd hoped to be able to cease doing that come January.

Add incredulous to the list.

I can't believe the number of people I deal with are elated and thankful and convinced that the country was saved. They truly are taken in by Obama, and it's scary.

I also feel like I'm on the outside, looking in at a country and values I don't recognize.

I've also been feverish (have that bad cold everyone has been passing around), so I'm hoping I'll feel better soon.

Four years is a long time.

I decided I am not going to let these morons get me down. I had chest pain at work today. It was weird, not one person discussed what happened, not one. I was surprised. I work at a major retailer and upper management has to know this is going to be bad for us. It was surreal. I think we all have battle fatigue and I know that several of them voted for stupid. I unfriended all the libs on Facebook and have decided I do not need any of them, including a BFF from childhood, in my life.

Don't get depressed! It was a good run. Whites voted for Romney but just too many Hispanics, blacks and feminists listened to the Panderer in Chief with his lies and fear-mongering. There is no way for conservatism to win in the US until these selfish voters wake up to his lies. They are like drug addicts dependent on their entitlement fix and won't wake up until they hit rock bottom. Go Galt in survival mode now and get ready to strike back in 2016. I have a feeling that Benghazi isn't the end of Obama's screwups and the tea party isn't dead but will be more active. However, the SEIU thugs will also be more thuggish and a real civil war is in the brewing.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Colo. eminent domain case

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Salon: ABC News ´Bending Over

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily wasn’t exactly in Reverence Mode for the Boston Marathon bombing victims. About 40 minutes before the memorial ceremony on Tuesday afternoon, Farrow aired a segment about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s love for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and how it somehow may have led to his radicalism. How is the “robust martial arts culture” of wrestling a better “scene” for Tamerlan’s radicalism instead of radical websites or mosques? Farrow somberly promised “a look at the people behind this tragedy: the Tsarnaev brothers.” Was it just a tragedy, or a crime? Farrow turned to his partners at Vocativ for a

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
