It would be cool if people here could be nicer to each other, and do so without being lame. twocents


I totally agree, people should respect the person on the other side of the screen and not dance around the edges of what is being discussed. That’s a disingenuous way of addressing another person and is really just a way to project an air of superiority rather than making a statement about the matter. Be direct and don’t act like the person isn’t smart enough to see the hidden message.


Forever in debt to your priceless advice...

To attribute recent increases in suicide rates to the economy, please provide some more data. That's quite a stretch. I work in Law Enforcement, and the suicides we deal with rarely seem to be economic related. They seem much more complex, and with sadder and deeper root causes than economic ones.

The economy is certainly better now than it was just a few years ago. It seems hard to argue the numbers supporting this.


Look up some info on farmer suicides, which are apparently 1.5x higher than the national average. Seems most are related to economic issues related to the trade war. I found a few articles, but pretty much every part of them is political...

Yea, GDP is great, unemployment is great... but the jobs are terrible. That creates a lot of stress, and stressed people with other underlying issues tend to do irrational things frown

Someone that had a steady manufacturing job that paid well could be a store clerk now with random hours. Still employed, but not nearly to the level they were before.

If you ever find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

Sorry, but I don't read any articles posted here unless they are from a source I know and trust, and there are VERY few I trust. Any intelligent writer can twist things to favor their biases. I have read Thomas Sowell's work for years now, and learned to trust and take it to heart. He's one of the few. But all these links posted with articles from authors unknown that are suppose to sway one's opinion? No way. For every one posted with one opinion or "fact", I could find another with an opposing one.


Facts are stubborn things.
