Atul is Kevin’s Neighbor!

What a civic-minded neighborhood SE Port St. Lucie Blvd is!

Atul voted in this past November’s election also. Atul lives just down the street from Kevin.

Gertrude Walker, our Supervisor of Elections here in St. Lucie County tells us Atul Patel resides in Precinct 22 at:

398 SE Port St. Lucie Blvd
Port St. Lucie, FL 34984

Right here:

Yet again,
. . . Only problem: 1st Base Discount Beverages is not a legal reidence – a domicile, where a person sleeps.

Oh, well, who is the Supervisor Of Elections to disturb such a neighborly environment. You know, it’s so nice to have like-minded neighbors.

Atul reminds us: “. . . And don’t forget to Party Hearty on Election Day”.

Disarm the Pharmacists

As Joe Biden prepares his report for President Obama on how to curtail gun violence in America there will be some lip service given to mental illness and what additional steps we can take to confront it and deal with it.  Well a friend of mine has made me aware of a website that shows that mental illness isn’t a side issue but the main issue.  To be more specific it isn’t mental illness but our propensity to prescribe very dangerous mind altering drugs when someone just doesn’t fit our narrow definition of mental stablilty.  Before giving you that website for you to look at I want to give you some quick background.

There is a family of drugs out there called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors or SSRIs for short.  I’m neither a doctor, psychiatrist or pharmacist so I’ll be brief here.  SSRIs are antidepressants used in the treatments of depression, anxiety and personality disorders.   Common street names are Paxil, Zoloft, Lustral, Lexapro and the ever popular Prozac.  These are powerful drugs manufactured by an even more powerful pharmaceutical industry with very powerful lobbyists inside the FDA.  Yes, there is a lot of money at stake here.

Now these drugs are known to have some side effects that could very well be worse than the ills that they are supposed to cure.  Apathy, extremely vivid or strange dreams, increased depression, panic attacks, thoughts of suicide, mania, psychotic disorders, dissociative disorders, cognitive disorders and loss of contact with reality.

Look at this website and draw your own conclusions.  http://ssristories.wpengine.com/old/index1.php  and then review the data here.  http://ssristories.org/  (edited 10/9/15 updated web addresses)
It has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with a society that believes that we have better lives when we medicate ourselves and our kids.  This website lists worldwide incidents, and also lists reports that a lot of people would prefer you didn’t see.

The common denominator in all these incidents isn’t assault weapons, magazines that hold more than ten rounds, or even guns themselves.  The common denominator is the SSRIs, the legal drugs that doctors prescribe day in and day out.  Assault weapon bans won’t stop the stabbings, the beating with baseball bats, the bomb plots.  It is no surprise that those who hate guns can be so far off target.

There is no reason for gun control, gun bans, tougher regulations.  Unless those regulations are pointed at the pharmaceutical industry, pill mills, school nurses and school psychologists  who are too fast to diagnose illness that might not actually exist.  This is not a gun problem.   Feel free to pass this along. Demand that your congressmen see the website.  I know Joe Biden won’t look.  He’s too busy figuring out how to take away your 2nd Amendment Right.

Kevin Lives Here

Apartment 1053

Yes.  This is where Kevin lives.  Apartment 1053.  I know this because Gertrude Walker, Saint Lucie County’s Supervisor of Elections says so.

I bet Kevin doesn’t sleep with a pillow.  A pillow probably doesn’t fit in the cozy apartment where Kevin “resides”.

And  .  .  .  Kevin votes!  Very civic minded, Kevin is.  Kevin even voted Absentee Ballot in our most recent November 6, 2012 General Election.  Probably didn’t fill out his two-part ballot in his apartment.  Hard to swing that pencil around, you know – with so little room in his apartment.

Perhaps Kevin filled out his ballot in his Apartment Complex:

Kevin's Apartment Complex

Yeah, lots more room in Kevin’s Apartment Complex.

Kevin is registered to vote.  According to Gertrude, Kevin J. Zimmerman resides at physical address:
378 SE Port St Lucie Blvd
Apt 1053
Port Saint Lucie, FL 34984

 

The only difficulty:
Florida law requires a voter to register at the physical address where they live. I can’t be sure . . . but I tend to believe Kevin does not “physically live” at Apartment 1053 in the Goin’ Postal mailbox rental facility.  What think you?
