Teen Suicide Rate Triples: Why?

Well, nobody knows exactly why. All they know is that the rate’s gone up tremendously in ten years, 2007-2017, according to the government’s Center for Disease Control. Up 56% in those ten years. That’s among persons aged 10 to 14 years old (https://www.westernjournal.com/suicide-rates-among-children-10-14-years-old-tripled-experts-blame-social-media/).

So the Experts reckon social media’s the problem, because “teenagers are concerned about receiving enough validation from their followers on social media…”

Hmmm… Now where could kids ever have gotten the idea that their age-group peers, other kids, are the most important people in the world, and peer approval the most important and desirable thing in all the world? What could possibly have taught them that?

Then there are the perpetual Doomsday scenarios were bombarded with daily: climate change gonna kill us, world’s gonna end in 12 years, ain’t no God, ain’t no purpose to life, we can know nothing–“You” aren’t you, but just a collection of external characteristics that land you in this or that group. Has anyone suggested to these Experts that even without social media, our culture is, like, saturated with these depressing messages? All brought to us by noozies and Democrats and teacher unions and looniversities and all the rest of [trumpet fanfare] The Smartest People In The World.

Well, there is a God and He has counted the very hairs on our heads, there is a purpose in life, the world that He created is not going to fall apart because people have SUVs and toilet paper, or for any other reasons, and you are you because you are made in His image and redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God–which makes you pretty important!

Teach your kiddies not to listen to the Doomsday no-meaning-no-God crowd, not ever; and for heaven’s sake, take them out of public education. They need to be socialized and taught by their loving families, not by other kids.

Guess What? I Have High Blood Pressure

So I went to the dentist for a routine cleaning, and, for the first time ever, they took my blood pressure before they did anything. And it’s too high–way too high. On that account, I was refused dental treatment. It’s new rules, handed down from the state dentistry board, nothing to do with us–they just don’t want me having a stroke while my teeth are being cleaned. I promised n0t to conk out on them, but no dice.

Because I’m not on any medications now and I don’t want to be, I will try to get my BP down with diet and exercise. I hate diet and exercise. Meanwhile, various people have asked me why I have high blood pressure in the first place.

Well, it’s an hereditary trend among males in my family. And I have a sedentary job, sitting at the computer for hours on end.

But there’s also the unremitting stress of standing here watching my country get debauched, turned into a joke, and murdered by the very persons who are supposed to maintain it and protect it. The whole ruling class of America hates America and wants to turn it into something else. Dissolve our borders, import hundreds of thousands of Muslims, redefine basic human institutions, butcher babies, persecute Christianity and Christians, trash the whole thing  beyond recognition; and we have a “president” who shreds a copy of the Constitution every morning as soon as he wakes up, and does it again when he goes to bed at night.

Our rulers, our opinion-shapers, our rich and powerful and glorious whoopee crowd, hate us, despise us, and are doing their level best to ruin us.

I long to open my eyes someday to a world in which I will never hear such a phrase as “persons who identify as men.”

So, yeah, you bet I’ve got high blood pressure.

The stuff that’s being done to our country has got to stop.

And one way or another, it will.
