I am so disgusted!

Mary Mary 2012/12/22 06:53:38
I had a poster (republican) tell me that my son wouldn't have attempted suicide if he had decent parents. I have just contained myself enough to write this. My son had a series of sad and stressful events in his life as many teenagers do, the final straw was when his best friend died of a brain aneurism after he had had an argument with him. How heartless of this person to say this to me only 2 months after seeing my son in the ICU. What is with these people, we were discussing guns and I said if there had been a gun in the house I wouldn't have my son now and THIS was what he came back at me with.
You!

    Take heart, Mary. More people understand and wouldn't even think of something so heartless. Consider the source and try to let it go. As has been said - it speaks more about the poster's character than anything. I have found in my many years, those who speak in such a manner usually have their words come back to them in a not so good way.

    How heartless. People should really think before they strike. I had a similar instance a couple months ago on a thread about the Stand Your Ground laws. A door-to-door meat salesman that I knew was shot and killed by a man who claimed that the salesman was on his property and he felt "threatened" so he shot him dead. This man was not threat at all, and was a very nice and personable person. There is no way that he seemed threatening.

    Yet someone reacted in support of the Stand Your Ground Laws saying that if the salesman was on his property without invitation, he had every right to shoot him and kill him. It appalls me that anyone would be so heartless to someone hurting from a loss, as to rationalize that the loss was appropriate, or that the person just plain "asked for it".

    That tells you the lack of character and basic humanity of the Conservatives and the ultra Conservative T-Boogers. It is sad, but these are the enemies, and the sadistic nature of radical extremism of the right. One has to beware of the demons we are all confronted with as they are completely heartless, and only fed by pure evil.

    I think I have the answer to what we are dealing with It is called the Hidden Evil .Both the financial elites and their servants who maintain this system, appear to exhibit behavior that is consistent with symptoms associated with a mental disorder known as Psychopathy. Psychopaths, also called sociopaths, are categorized as those who exhibit fear mongering and are full of delusions or common sense. Look at their traits which include;

    1. Unreliability
    2. Frequent lying
    3. Deceitful and manipulative behavior.
    4. Lack of Remorse or shame,
    5. Antisocial behavior
    6. Lack of feeling or emotion except for irrational hatred and rage
    7. Poor judgement and a failure to learn by experience.
    8. Poverty of general emotions
    9. Loss of insight
    10. A frequent need for excitement
    11. An Inflated self-worth

    Psychopathy is basically an emotional disorder. The crucial aspect of psychopathy is the emotional impairment.

    What is the relationship between what we are (on the inside) and what we do (on the outside)? Philosophers, theologians, and educators have long speculated about the connection between thought and action, character and conduct, private word and public deed. The prevailing assumption, which underlies most teaching, counseling, and child rearing, has been that our private demons, irrational hatreds, beliefs, a noticeable deterioration in the level of functioning, a contradictory or antagonistic qualities or attitudes
    determine our public behavior and actions.

    Their lying is communication with the intention of creating fear,and control. A sarcastic or mean statement which is intended or expected to create pain is their conscious intent, and is done to inflict the highest level of discomfort, and the communicator has a deterioration in the level of functioning and the individual desires for this desired outcome.

    Lies are typically motivated by a desire to persuade others to act or to refrain from acting in a certain manner — or to make decisions in one's favor. Sex, money, status, power, control, fear — anything desired can provide temptation to kill, steal and lie.

    Credibility is a form of wealth. Everyone has access to some credibility as some never exercise it. If credibility is squandered believers are less readily available — but "there is a sucker born every minute". This is reassuring only for persons who are content to continually populate their lives with newly-born victims.

    The frontal lobe of their brain is not fully developed until age 25 to see the results of their action, but the do know right from wrong. Many people grow smarter and more experienced as the grow older, and others never do. This young man seems to have the mentality of a 10 year old.

    People get sad when it gets to be too much they contemplate ending it all, teenagers are so emotional anyway.It is in no way your fault. Most people who are suicidal don't want to talk and don't want to be bothered, When you feel you have reach the bottom you don't want to drag the ones who love you with you. You're lucky to still have your child. Try to get him help. Talking does help, kids just don't like to talk to adults. There are programs for kids like your son.

    If there was a gun in your house, and you let your suicidal son have access to it, then his attempted suicide would have been a guaranteed death. That would be partially your fault, if you allowed him access to your gun - that would be irresponsible parenting.

    If you can't be responsible with a gun, then you shouldn't have one. It seems that you know you can't be responsible with a gun - which is why you don't have one. Good for you for being responsible enough to know better!

    However, you being a clueless parent, and not realizing that your son is suicidal? That's an easy mistake for a parent to make. Especially in this day and age.

    A friend of mine jumped off a bridge when I was in high school. He didn't tell anyone he was doing it, and seemed to be doing better for a month or so before hand.

    His mom couldn't believe it when I answered her honestly that there was something she could have done, and it was partially her fault that he was suicidal. It was true, though - but my friend deciding to kill himself was certainly not his mother's fault, and I made sure she understood that.

    The internet is famous for "trolls" - people who say the most hurtful, hateful things possible. This is how they get their enjoyment, especially from people they dislike.

    You're anti-gun. You're anti-freedom. I'm not ok with that. I'm not going to give up my rights, that I went through two combat deployments, to defend, because you don't think I need them right now.

    My rights don't end where your feelings begin.

    I am sorry to hear about your son, though, and I hope he does better. Make some changes, and hang in there.

    Well, if you could have had a gun, you should have known better than to allow an irresponsible child access to such a thing. I never had access to my parent's guns when I was growing up, unless they were present, and we were out at a shooting range, and that's probably for the best.

    You didn't read my whole post, did you? I posted things that would have judged the family if they'd hypothetically allowed a suicidal person access a gun. The same hypothetical that the original post proposed.

    I've been directly affected by suicide. The bridge didn't cause my friend to jump off of it. I don't hate bridges. I don't fear bridges every time I see one.
