    When will the DSM-6 be out and will Post-Election Depression be a billable mental illness? What will the criteria be to meet it?

    Liked by 3 people

    • I don’t know what the criteria will be, but I’m sure it will only cover people who start having “panic attacks” after a Republican is elected.

      Republicans who react poorly to a Democrat president will simply be labelled racist/sexist/bigoted/etc, etc, etc.

    New memo out from DHS outlining the illegal immigration directives. 19 pages, but so far they’ve covered fines for anyone facilitating illegals staying, identifying who has lied to get benefits, and expanded identifying those who will be detained. Further, it spells out that following the directive is NOT allowable by any administrator within the program {to include, I believe, any renegade BP agents who ignore doing their jobs}.

    Great start. Let’s see what the 9th Circus can do with this!!!

      Under removability watch that ‘charged with any offense that hasn’t been resolved’ as I can see them contesting that as punishment without a legal determination of guilt. Didn’t read the entire thing as iPad wouldn’t enlarge it but if there isn’t a severance clause the entire thing could be dumped if any small part if found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable.

    This guy is very entertaining. He was from Bosnia, I think, and moved to Sweden as a refugee when he was a little boy. I am posting this here so I don’t get jumped on over on the “Swedish” thread. Interesting point of view about Sweden, but also about Russia, and U.S. involvement in the Middle East (Iraq and Syria). Language alert.

      Sweden and Denmark control acceess to the North Atlantic from the Baltic Sea and Russia’s Baltic Fleet, headquartered st St Petersburg, and its nuke base at Kaliningrad would basically be boxed in. The Baltic fleet could only get onto the Atlantic by wriggling its way through Danish waters or making a run thru the straits between Sweden and Denmark.
      Last year Russia asked Sweden to rent it space on Gotland Island, presumably for a naval base, that would have given it more flexibility in naval operations – Sweden politely declined. Interestingly, shortly after the Swedes declined the offer the government put the country back into a Cold War footing fearing a Russian invasion.
      Sweden is a NATO partner and not a full member, that gives them the ability to get NATO protection if needed while retaining a cover of neutrality. All considered, especially of what happened in the Crimea when Russia needed to secure its Black Sea basing, Sweden is experiencing a bit of paranoia.
      Then there’s the theory that the Russians are looking for a source of weaponized surstromming but that’s just a rumor.

          Definately, the Swedes are the poster children for liberal passive behavior. They are to national self-defense and identity what Schmoos were to fine dining.

            Aricept’s working for me…just remembered that a year ago the Swedish government demanded an international investigation of Israeli ‘extrajudicial executions’ of Moslem murderers. They didn’t call for an international investigation of Moslem and Moslem government extrajudicial assassinations, just Israeli. Then we have that growth in antisemitic crimes in Sweden over the last twenty years or so.
            Let ’em have allllll the Moslems they want, can’t wait to see the beer commercials featuring the Swedish burqini team.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    You would think that Michelle Obama would have a better grasp of America’s beginning history, or at least do some research prior to give a speech like this. But Illegal Immigrants/Aliens are NOT Immigrants.
    An Illegal Immigrant/alien is a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization.2.a foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or businessperson

    Had the need to talk dirty today, so this Teacher went to see her student, Son.

    Having taught Son IBM IT hacking, rebellious Son went to Apple, the hardware and software of wimps, and Son hacked school’s network (the traitor).

    So this p.m. Son shared his Apple Cloud and talked through our common language, Oracle, and Son reminded Teacher how to find new tools in the Cloud.

    You see, Son and Teacher share the same DNS. How easy it is to talk dirty with one’s head in the same Cloud.

    Find joy in all things. Even when one thinks no one can ever understand anymore. And laugh, even if you do not understand yet.

    My apologies…I have been corrected by a friend (yes, I still have a few) who still toils away in Federal civil service. I misstated the number of days I didn’t have to work and still was paid. It seems I forgot the local holiday of Mardi Gras and we had twelve, not eleven paid holidays. So, a career civil servant who is also a Reserve/Guard member received (here) 67 paid work days a year off were s/he to use them all. If anyone were wondering, said employee would still accrue personal and sick leave while said employee was on leave.
