And probably this is a good thing. Back in the day you could commit someone against their will and basically lock them up and forget about them. There's some real horror stories about husbands doing that to their wives, political and legal retribution, etc...

On the flip side it's harder to get help for someone who doesn't want help. Real nightmare for paranoid schizophrenics who freak out at the idea of getting help.

It went extreme in the wrong direction. How many times has a mass shooter known to have an undiagnosed, untreated or unsupervised mental illness? Approximately 30% of homeless people are mentally ill, trapped in their own mental nightmare and cannot get out because they are too ill, impoverished, depressed, or paranoid to seek treatment. There needs to be some kind of evaluation system to force treatment or supervision on people who are obviously hurting themselves or a potential danger to others.

We can thank Reagan for this. And many believe Trump to be the next Reagan. If true, we are fucked.

However, there is a sliver of hope.

Very true. There probably is a sane middle point that we can reach.

And you're dead right about Reagan. He hosed California's mental health system really good back when he was Governor. I don't know anyone who has a severely mentally ill family member in California that doesn't spit on his name.

Why we haven't fixed the system though I'm not sure.

I think it hasn’t been fixed because doing so would require more reliance on a judgement call from a professional. And though a professional can make the right decision with the information they have, it can turn out to be the wrong choice. Governance and people in general do not like that kind of ambiguity.
Treating and housing the mentally ill is expensive, that's why they were turned loose in the 80's. It's all about the money and societal awareness gleaned from movies like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".

This is beyond wrong-headed.

1) They're near cities because people are near cities. It's easier to find employees when many people are around. You won't find many qualified engineers in Peoria, but you'll find an abundance of them in Seattle and San Francisco

2) The work force doesn't *want* to be there. Assuming most highly skilled employees are already employed, it would be nearly impossible to convince many to move outside of a big city. Look at how many companies have been moving back to big cities, or opening satellite offices. Read any article about how the companies that moved outside of Chicago 30 years ago now struggle to get new hires to commute 1 hour to those places, because those new hires are unwilling to move outside of the big city
This^
Agrarian society was so 19th century.

It's a movie and not a series.
Never heard that Will Smith was in a cult, not surprising since they tend to glomb onto celebrities as a form of marketing to aid in recruiting.
Thanks, thought it was a Nexflix series. Yeah, sadly he and his wife both seem to be in the cult.

I actually worried about being a bigot but don't think that applies when talking about cults. Those idiots got together with our idiot governor here in Texas. They offered him campaign donations to in-act a new law, weakening Mental Health laws. Now it's even harder to require mentally ill take medication, whom pose a threat to themselves or others. They undermine Mental Health laws because those are their victims. Flamethrower

Edit: Replied before reading your link, checking it now.
Guess, I'm behind the times and they got out. Yeah, it was creepy for awhile. You know the way indoctrinated talk about, "it".
Just when you thought it could not get any worse than Rick Perry, poor Texas.

I watched "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore" on Netflix and thought it was a new series right up to the ending. Good casting, worth a watch. http://www.metacritic.com/movie/i-dont-feel-at-home-in-this-world-anymore

Alan Colmes was involved in several charities and generally argued for left-leaning issues on FOX. It is remarkably distasteful to spit on his grave over a misconception but to double down on it after being corrected is just immature.
Then I am remarkably broken. It's going to be ok because death happens. But you have a choice who you work for.

When's the last time you restarted your computer because it was pretty much an insta load here. It's impossible to compare page load speeds because there are too many variable including server load, isp congestion, solar flares and ad-serving/ad-blocking just to name a few.

He was a great guy and very Liberal, you're pathetic guy. You heard Fox and made an assumption, just like people hear CNN and make assumptions. You are the fucking problem and just as brainless as some Trump voter with a misspelled protest sign.

How does it feel knowing you're the useless Trump voter of the left? I must be broken on the inside, I don't feel sad.
I'm sorry that you're sad, but what a good rant you had going.

And yes, you are broken if there was ever any doubt.

A coworker once regaled to me his experience in a theater's concession area. After three months, he said the popcorn butter on the flood had literally melted the plastic soles of his shoes. People put that stuff in their body. Anyhow, don't let me keep you from your fun. Toodles!

That Alien: Covenant trailer was bad ass! Really looking forward to it.
The trailer was a good tease at over 4 minutes, almost verging on spoiler territory, making me wish I had not watched it for that reason alone.

As I understand it that's the first scene in the movie.

You must be seeing something I don't, I mean you can cover it with a single sentence: "Colonists celebrating prior to going into stasis on a trip to a planet farther into the galaxy than humans have gone before."

The only spoiler is in what we already know, it is an "Alien" film. Hence we know the antagonist.
Now I know what happens during a full scene of the movie, versus a normal trailer that contains highlights from throughout a movie. The suspenseful moment during that scene was spoiled for me, that's all. Likewise, if I had written about this scene and what it entailed without spoiler tags I am sure that someone would have taken offense, and rightly so.

yes that is highly offensive.. you are so right to be so upset.. SHAME ON THEM!
Just knowing that others recognize my pain does wonders for my damaged psyche. Thank you kind good kind sir and god bless.
