I read this last night, and my blood really did boil:
Then, I woke up this morning and realized, what a gift, here is a list of mental health care providers, completely voluntarily offered, of clinicians you should NEVER freakin’ see!
Because by doing this, they have shown several qualities that one should never have to deal with for a patient receiving care:
opinions without experience
bring politics into the treatment arena
violating of professional ethics
and last, just plain rude!
Hey, some reader comes here and wants to claim I am doing the same, well, here’s the difference when I was accused of such at World Of Psychology blog per the column John Grohol wrote 2 weeks ago:
It’s a blog, I am noting clinical observations while providing the disclaimer up front I have never met Obama or other politicians I have criticized and offered OPINION there are personality issues at hand, and advise the public take a stand, not try to use clinical conjecture to make forcible changes, like just removing a President from office.
So, am I splitting hairs, well, make the charge. But, I do agree overall with the Goldwater Rule in Psychiatry, and a clinician can’t publicly, on TV or in well read print or computer media sites, claim a politician or public official is mentally ill and thus incompetent to serve office, irregardless of not knowing the individual, or worse being a clinician to such person and then violating confidentiality and publicly commenting as such!
So, read the list of who has signed on, and if I were you as a patient, don’t go to these “clinicians”, or even more unfortunately, don’t continue to go if already a patient!
Wow, isn’t it amazing and disgusting how far south society has gone with all this Personality Disorder driven garbage at hand?!
And worst of all, that the APA won’t discipline one of these f—-rs in their ranks who have signed this petition! Because I would bet the APA has a vested interest in seeing Trump be humiliated if not try to force him out.
It’s not the politicians who suck, but, the public. The Public sucks, Fuck hope!!! And you’re welcome, George Carlin, your campaign slogan will ring eternally in my heart!…
addendum 1 hour later,
first read what was said:
“Now, I happen to think that the Trump presidency is extremely dangerous. You just listed off in your news—in your newscast that led the show, many reasons. They want to dismantle the environment. They want to eliminate the safety net. They want to empower billionaires. They want to enact bigoted policies against Muslims and immigrants and so many others. And it is important to resist them. And there are lots of really great ways to resist them, such as getting courts to restrain them, citizen activism and, most important of all, having the Democratic Party engage in self-critique to ask itself how it can be a more effective political force in the United States after it has collapsed on all levels. That isn’t what this resistance is now doing. What they’re doing instead is trying to take maybe the only faction worse than Donald Trump, which is the deep state, the CIA, with its histories of atrocities, and say they ought to almost engage in like a soft coup, where they take the elected president and prevent him from enacting his policies. And I think it is extremely dangerous to do that. Even if you’re somebody who believes that both the CIA and the deep state, on the one hand, and the Trump presidency, on the other, are extremely dangerous, as I do, there’s a huge difference between the two, which is that Trump was democratically elected and is subject to democratic controls, as these courts just demonstrated and as the media is showing, as citizens are proving. But on the other hand, the CIA was elected by nobody. They’re barely subject to democratic controls at all. And so, to urge that the CIA and the intelligence community empower itself to undermine the elected branches of government is insanity. That is a prescription for destroying democracy overnight in the name of saving it. And yet that’s what so many, not just neocons, but the neocons’ allies in the Democratic Party, are now urging and cheering. And it’s incredibly warped and dangerous to watch them do that.”
It comes from this site:
Note how I highlighted the end, and why it only reinforces my point, I believe that more Republicans than not would focus on the system and maintaining the checks and balances that inevitably work, than the flagrant antisocial element that is the Democrat party that will do anything, ANYTHING, just to win.
Thus why this sums up for me, why the Democrats are just Demon-craps, and while the Republicans are Repugnocants, they just say “No, I won’t, I can’t, and why should I care about people who are dependent”, yeah, they are repugnant, but, they will do by the system. Democrats don’t, they surround themselves with special interests and lobbies that just want what is best for a select small group of people, and don’t care about the level of hate and violence it ferments.
So, pick a side, and if you choose poorly, well, let’s leave with this example, shall we, of why evil doesn’t get to drink from the cup:
Hmm, wouldn’t that be nice to watch, some of these Democrat hacks just aging quickly and being pushed aside to dissipate in the wind…
