Terry Gilberg Show 3 May: Sources for Commentary

Per my appearance on the Terry Gilberg Show on Saturday, May 3rd, I provide more detail and sources.

Connecticut Stabbing Perp Christopher Plaskton, may be show signs of psychosis.

Anti-depressants and ADHD medication are often correlated in these incidents. On Jan 7, 2011 Time Magazine reported on a study that listed the drugs most often linked with violent behavior. 8 of the top 10 drugs which are linked with violent behavior are specifically supposed to be mood-altering, and the 9th is allegedly supposed to address a sleep problem.

We can go back to Columbine 15 years ago for a chilling list that illustrates the problem. Eric Harris was taking the antidepressant Luvox. Klebold was witnessed taking the antidepressants Paxil and Zoloft.  (Officially, Klebold’s medical records remain sealed. Why?)

But there’s plenty more.

Mexican Army May Be Crossing US Border

Documentation of over 300 incursions over 18 years, but apparently not enough to get anyone riled up about Mexico actually invading the US militarily. Residents of the border actually have more complaints about the Border Patrol. Shades of the fall of Rome where the citizens welcomed the invaders because the tax code they lived under was so onerous. Perhaps the border residents think that Mexican government can’t be much worse than our own?

The number of BP agents has almost tripled since 1999, while the number of apprehensions has fallen to a third of what it was 15 years ago. So we have government employees accomplishing approximately 11% as much as they did 15 years ago. That sounds about right. (Since the raison d’etre of the Border Patrol is to secure the border, the fact that three times as many agents are doing one third as much work means that either (a) the need for BP has dramatically fallen or else (b) they’re way less effective than they were 15 years ago. Either way, it just demonstrates the complete utter incompetence of government.

Toronto mayor rob ford goes to rehab.  can he redeem himself and get reelected again?

Can you say “Marion Barry”? Twice elected mayor and once elected councilman. 1990 – caught smoking crack. 1994, re-elected mayor of DC.  2002 arrested for marijuana and cocaine possession. 2004 elected councilman. 2005 put on probation for not filing taxes for several years. 2011, probation extended because he didn’t file yet again.

I think Toronto has the mayor it wants. The real story here is not that Rob Ford has a vacuum hose for a nose. The real story is that a majority of Toronto voters don’t care.  The culture of Washington DC is one where using drugs does not disqualify a person from public office. Apparently the culture of Toronto is the same. In Arizona, our culture is a little different. I say “live and let live”. Just don’t make me responsible for paying for someone else’s addiction treatment.
