Another Theory Shot to Hell

The theory is that armed police shouldn’t be dispatched to calls of violent people with mental health issues. Instead, unarmed mental health counselors should be sent, they claim.

Guess what? Ronald Mosely was under the care of court ordered mental health professionals when he decided to go to his former workplace with a gun in an attempt to kill two of his coworkers. Police had to smoke his ass.

Come to think of it, the majority of spree shooters have been under the care of mental health professionals.

As a medical professional, I think that mental health is not real science. It’s voodoo wishful thinking with fairy dust. I can’t tell you how many of these violent nutcases come into my hospital every week. I was attacked by one in December. He was delusional and thought I was trying to sleep with a female technician in the room, who he mistakenly believed was his wife.

In October, I had another patient who shit in a plastic urinal and threw his feces at me.

Just last week, we had a psych case go nuts and punch a doctor so hard that the doctor’s orbital bone was fractured and it caused bleeding in his brain.

On Friday night, I had a patient who was talking to someone who wasn’t there for over four hours (yeah, he was a nutcase). The doctor wouldn’t Baker Act him because, “Being an annoying asshole isn’t illegal and doesn’t make him a threat to others.” The doctor also wouldn’t discharge him without a drug test. The house supervisor (nurse in charge of the hospital) told me that I *had* to attempt to draw the patient’s blood so we could do the test. The patient told me that he had HIV, and said he would stick me with a needle tainted with his blood if I tried to start an IV on him. I told the charge nurse this, and she said I still had to try. That was when I told her that if she needed his blood so bad, she should be the one to draw it, because I wasn’t going to do it unless he was placed in restraints.

She didn’t do it, either.

There are only two ways to deal with anyone: you can reason with them, or you can use force. People with certain mental health conditions don’t reason or reach conclusions like normal people. They are broken. You can’t bargain with them, you can’t appeal to their better nature. Anyone who insists that this isn’t true is either lying to you for personal gain, or has no idea what they are talking about.

War on Drugs Killed Cold Medicine

Studies are showing that the most widely sold oral decongestant in the US doesn’t do anything, but we already knew that. The name of the drug is phenylephrine, and its sold as a key ingredient in things like NyQuil and other cold medicines.

When the Feds decided to stop people from making Meth, they needed to pull pseudoephedrine from the market, so they were looking for a replacement and settled on phenylephrine.

In the hospital, the intravenous version of phenylephrine is called “neo” by nurses. It’s found in nasal sprays like neo-synephrine, where it works pretty well. It’s a vasoconstrictor, meaning that it causes blood vessels to constrict, and it can be useful for increasing a patient’s blood pressure without affecting heart rate when given in an IV, and it shrinks sinus tissue when sprayed in the nose. When given orally, not so much.

It also doesn’t work worth a darn as a cold medicine. Anyone who has tried taking it knows that it doesn’t really work. If you want a true decongestant, you have to go to the pharmacy counter and hand over ID so your cold medicine can be registered. I guess that way, the cops can more effectively catch those who make meth.

Except meth is still widely available, but now I can’t breathe whenever I have a cold.

Snoozefest

The New Yorker Post is claiming that Florida is a “snoozefest” compared to New York.

I guess it is.

The truth is:

  • We aren’t all old.
  • Yes, we eat early down here. I usually eat dinner before 6.
  • No, we don’t have crocodiles, you moron. We have alligators. You must have learned that in your superior New York education you are bragging about.
  • We have hurricanes. So what? We aren’t pussies about it. Remember “Superstorm” Sandy? Yeah, that was a Category 1 storm. Pussies.
  • No, we don’t all sit around waiting for you to hand us money to drive your mother around.

On the other hand:

To the NY Post: please, please keep telling New Yorkers that Florida sucks. We don’t want your liberal asses and their votes down here. Stop trying to turn Florida into the southern annex of New York. We don’t care how you do things “up north” or even want to hear, “Well, up in New York, we…”

We don’t care, as long as you keep your liberal ideas, taxes, and votes up in New York, where they belong.

‘Teens’

An old man was being beaten on a New York subway car by a group of ‘teens.’ A local TV weather man, who was also on the train, told them to stop. The weatherman became the target of their beating instead. Since the arrested ‘teens’ were all juveniles, they were released without charges. Look at the man’s injuries:

Two black eyes, swollen face. A beating that causes injuries like this are frequently debilitating or even fatal. How can any society look at this as being some kind of lark or harmless crime? My wife keeps asking me why I won’t go to places like New York City or why most of the people I know view NYC as a cesspool. This is why. She counters with “stuff like this is rare. You just have to be careful about where you go.”

There is no way to know how rare this is, because there are no charges filed. Since there are no charges filed, crimes like this are likely not tracked. Misdemeanors and all. Just harmless fun committed by a bunch of ‘teens’ who weren’t doin nuthin.

Not a Theory

The nerds over at Wikipedia define a conspiracy theory as:

A conspiracy theory is an explanation for an event or situation that asserts the existence of a conspiracy by powerful and sinister groups, often political in motivation, when other explanations are more probable. The term generally has a negative connotation, implying that the appeal of a conspiracy theory is based in prejudice, emotional conviction, or insufficient evidence.

A deeper dive into the Twitter files shows that the Federal government was sending so many requests for censorship to Twitter that the company was having to triage the requests. Twitter was receiving requests from more than 80 agencies- everyone from the DOD to the FBI.

This wasn’t a few rogue employees. This was a coordinated effort by hundreds of employees of dozens of federal agencies to influence the election. At this point, you can consider all branches of government to be suspect: Local and Federal agencies all working together to put their thumb on the scale.

There is more than enough evidence here to show that this was not just some conspiracy that exists only in the minds of paranoid wearers of tin foil hats. This did happen and is happening. Our nation is no longer a republic with democratically elected representatives.

Preemption

Florida has had a preemption law for damned near 35 years. The only entity that can pass laws restricting guns is the state legislature. The left didn’t like that, and frequently ignored the law. They would pass gun restrictions and would hassle lawful gun owners, safe in the knowledge that they would never pay the price for violating people’s rights.

Until the state managed to get a law passed in 2011 that allows public officials to be held personally accountable for violating people’s rights with regard to guns. The left absolutely hates this law. Several cities, aided by that antigun commie bitch Nikki Fried, tried to sue the state to get the law overturned, which would have allowed every political entity in the state to pass its own gun laws. Concealed weapons permits would have become useless, as each city and county passed its own restrictions on carry.

That case died last week as the Florida Supreme Court refused to hear the case, leaving the preemption law in place.

Gamer Fags

This guy who spends all of his time online complaining about people who cheat at a first person shooter is also saying things like this:

I don’t think he is expecting the military to do it because he hates them too:
He spends the rest of his time spouting and retweeting communist shit like this:
How about instead I tell you this: Bring it, pussy. Who’s gonna stack at the door? You? Real life isn’t a video game, ass.

Peaceful Protests in Atlanta

More peaceful protesting in Atlanta this weekend.

According to Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum, people protesting a new police training ground gathered around 5 p.m. and marched peacefully until, once downtown, several of the protestors “started committing illegal acts, which included the breaking of windows and also attacking police cruisers that were in the area.” Police suppressed the violence quickly and no law enforcement officers or citizens were injured

So it was peaceful, except for the vandalism, looting, and attacking police officers. But wait a tick, which version of the article is accurate? Reuters had something else to say.

Marchers had gathered to protest the killing of an activist by law enforcement on Wednesday during a raid to clear the construction site of a public safety training facility that activists have derided with the nickname “Cop City”.

The demonstration started peacefully, then abruptly escalated with some protesters throwing fireworks and rocks and smashing buildings’ windows with hammers
