    All-American Despair

    For the past two decades, a suicide epidemic fueled by guns, poverty and isolation has swept across the West, with middle-aged men dying in record numbers
    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/suicide-rate-america-white-men-841576/

    It's not a pleasant thing, but It makes me wonder how many here on TB's are in this category? Truck drivers especially the long distance ones are vulnerable to it.

    There is a audio thing there that will read it to you. It's depressing but, you might need to hear it.

    One could probably find a connection to this problem and liberal plantation mentality!

    It happens sometimes when people find out their cell phone doesn't love them.

    Despair
    For that last 40 years these kids were told they were great and special
    The. Reality hits they are neither great nor special, just average people
    Nothing wrong with being average
    Some people can't handle it
    Everyone gets a trophy when your 12 by time your 25 if you can't do the job, you don't have the job
    Life doesn't give participation awards

    Like I said it's a real bummer but you can pretty much figure that a number of people on here or use to be on here, are going to try it.
    Get some help if you can but as we seen in the story help can be hard to find depending on where you live.
    I like the idea about those special gun locks a gal was giving away. Its a pain in the ass to get off takes about 5 minutes or so. That might be enough time for somebody to change their mind who knows :idunno:
    Lets be careful out there

    Cat, or possum? I thought you had a shotgun? Don't let it suffer, or bite someone. Help it out, Mags....

    I knew eventually you'd get to your agenda. Just another way to blame guns.... I saw that one coming since the first post...

    Why in the world wouldn't Dirk accept the fact that he's gay, so he wakes up in the morning and some guy is in his bed, that isn't Trumps fault.

    Possums aren't all that bad. I wouldn't try to pick one up but they do a lot of good cleaning up out there. And they don't get rabies.
    Plus they are North Americas only Marsupial.

    I know you fellers like to eat them,
    but I get my meat from the super market

    It doesn’t get any better than it is right now and anyone who’s been around for a while knows it.
    Ever stop to think it’s your sides lack of anything spiritual, you worship your government.
