Poppy Harlow discussed the fact 90 percent of shooters are suicidal.

She also stated there are ways of finding suicidal thoughts and trends with people that desperate. I have a lot of questions about suicide in the American society in 2015, especially when it comes to any link to guns.

How much of the gun culture is affiliated with suicide? Do shooters have to psychologically harden themselves as if a soldier on the battlefield in order to shot someone else? Has the mental health professionals ever looked at the actual American gun culture to realize what changes when learning self-defense with guns.

If there are methods to prevent or end suicide in a person's life that are simple to institute then let's get on with this.

I will apologize up front as I realize there are Americans of all ages caught in the mass shootings that occur in the USA, but, there may very well be a particular population that stands out more as a victim than others.

...The student (click here) tried to get support from family and was turned away. "There's no question that the services we will give to (the student) will change (the student's) life ... and reducing stigma for those people is absolutely important and critical," said Locke.
As that story suggests, mental health needs on campus are real and serious. They're also growing, which is why as the first weeks of classes get underway at colleges and universities across the country, institutions are ramping up operations to try to keep their students safe.
The statistics are alarming.
Nearly 31% of students -- almost one out of three who sought counseling in the 2013-2014 academic year -- have said they seriously considered suicide at some point in their lives. Five years ago, it was 25%, according to the most recent annual report by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health at Penn State.
Equally concerning is the significant increase in the percentage of students who have purposely harmed themselves, such as engaging in cutting, hitting, burning and hair pulling, without intending to kill themselves. Almost 24% of college students who sought counseling in 2013-2014 had injured themselves at some point during their lifetimes compared to 21% five years earlier....

Young people are under a great deal of stress to achieve. As we have witnessed in the most recent generation, their job destinations after graduation was absent. An entire generation of Americans were disregarded as IMPORTANT.

The stress in achievement for our children starts very early. What if there aren't any good times? What if serious has taken away a well balanced life of happiness and achievement?

It seems to me with all the violence in their lives by people who are classmates, there needs to be a real examination of our culture and young people. I don't see how we can continue to move forward as a nation until we get this right. There is no excuse for any young person to feel so desperate about life they actually contemplate suicide.

Where does this permission to embrace death come from? I really think the American culture needs rehab. There is a very dark side to the American youth culture. It needs to stop.

Then there are the statistical outliars.

...We can try to situate  (click here) the Newtown shooting in a broader context of murder-suicides. But that’s not a simple task, since Lanza defied the typical profile as much as he conformed to it. While men commit up to 94 percent of these crimes, according to a 2006 study by the Violence Policy Center, the perpetrators are mostly embroiled in domestic disputes. Ninety percent of the time, they kill their romantic partners. (The recent case of NFL linebacker Jovan Belcher is a textbook example: Belcher and his girlfriend reportedly argued over their baby’s paternity before the athlete shot her and himself.) And when not carried out by jealous twentysomethings or thirtysomethings, murder-suicides tend to be enacted by frail old men who, no longer able to care for their ailing spouses, turn to violence out of a misguided sense of mercy. Or they’re mothers drawn to self-harm but anxious that their children will suffer too much without them. (Suicidologists call this impulse “deluded altruism.”)... 

We have come a long way in understanding the death rate in the USA when guns are used either for murder or suicide or both. Thirty thousand Americans die every year by gun violence. Two thirds of those statistics are suicides. That is a lot.

I have stated before; we need to come to understand the masculine culture in the USA, it's stigmas, it gifts and it's walls that prevent integration of personality and instills hatred. Men use weapons while women use pills. Why?

For years now the USA identified how boys were put on behavioral drugs sooner than girls.

It is time to look at the male culture in the USA and change it forever.

These climate crisis storms have multiple wind vectors resulting in rouge waves. AVOID THEM by a large margin.

Where did that ship go

There are independent circulation centers to the east and northeast of the hurricanes borders. There is also a continuous water vapor trail that comes from the ITCZ into the storm and connects to the heat transfer system connected to the independent circulation centers.

When the loop is played those independent circulation centers begin to dissipate, but, the ocean had to be rather turbulent. Those independent circulation centers would be causing multi vectors to the winds, hence the surface ocean waters.

In the image to the right are the circulation centers I am referring. They appear to be self contained and turbulent. 

The ship was out of Jacksonville? No matter the direction it took, which I haven't looked into, it would have been caught in oscillating water vapor systems. These circulation centers dissipated and were incorporated into the hurricane within the hour following this image. 

That is a lot of heat energy with vectors that are anyone's guess. A ships captain that is used to standard skills to predict the storms would not be able to discern these quick developments from moment to moment. There would be many rouge waves with substantial height. That ship was large and provides a significant surface area to catch different directional waves at the same time.
This is not a loop. South Carolina is in trouble.

The cloud mass over South Carolina usually is affiliated with tornadoes.

 The wind map shows a single direction, but, oddly the velocity of the winds are varied/. That means turbulence to me.

Here it is the winds over South Carolina are taking on a circulation center.

Mercer knew he was going to die.

...The shooting at Umpqua Community College (click here) in Roseburg left nine people dead and nine more injured Thursday.
Authorities confirmed the shooter, identified as Chris Harper-Mercer, handed out something during the shooting.
He gave his writings to a survivor and told the person to give them to police, law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation said. They could not confirm whether the writings were in a box.
The writing portrayed the shooter as identifying with perpetrators of past shooting rampages, investigators said, including Elliot Rodger, who killed six people last year in Santa Barbara, California.
Harper-Mercer expressed frustration that other mass killers did not take on police and vowed he would kill them along with others, law enforcement officials said.

I thought the domestic terrorism against Planned Parenthood was over.

This occurred hours after the witch hunt lead by Chaffetz. His inaccuracy only inflames tensions in the Pro-Life movement. We already know the murder.

As the national conversation on Planned Parenthood (click here) has become louder and more heated, politicians have warned that it could ignite acts of violence against clinics and neighborhood facilities.
Late Wednesday, for the second time in weeks, a Planned Parenthood center in Thousand Oaks came under attack, this time by an arsonist or arsonists who authorities believe smashed out a window, splashed gasoline inside the clinic and then ignited it.
Authorities say there’s no evidence the attack was related to the larger debate on Planned Parenthood, but said the West Hillcrest Drive facility was previously attacked by vandals six weeks ago.
No direct theats had been made to the facility or clinic workers before the fire, said Ventura County sheriff’s Capt. John Reilly.

“You're putting the community at risk when you're doing something like this,” Det. Tim Lohman said. “Whether it's the stuff that's in the news recently, we don't know.”...

It is easy to say Republicans have lost their way.

The fondest hope of al-Qaeda, (click here) the Islamic State, and other terrorist groups is to convince their followers that the world is divided into Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam) and the Dar al-harb (the House of War), and that the job of pious Muslims is to wage unrelenting war on “kafirs” (unbelievers) who refuse to accept the teaching of the Prophet. By going out of their way to denigrate Muslims, some leading Republicans are playing right into the terrorists’ hands....

This noxious theme has been carried on by some of those contending for the 2016 GOP nomination. Bobby Jindal has warned that Muslim immigration to the U.S. amounts to “colonization” and an “invasion,” and has said that the idea of a Muslim president is an “absurd hypothetical.” Before exiting the race, Scott Walker said there are only a “handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don’t share the radical beliefs that these radical Islamist terrorists have.” Mike Huckabee has called Muslims who commit violence after Friday prayers “uncorked animals.”

Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner who has previously described Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “murderers,” did not correct a questioner at a town hall meeting who said, “We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims. Our current president is one.” Ben Carson, who is polling in second place behind Trump, has flatly rejected the idea that a Muslim should ever become president, saying, “I would not advocate that we ever put a Muslim in charge of this nation.” Apparently he’s never heard of the Constitution’s Article VI: “No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”...

Colin Powell needs to run for a US House seat.

The US House needs leadership and the veterans need health care that works. Former Secretary Powell should run for a US House seat and bring sanity back to veterans and the country. Run on Single Payer Health Care for veterans.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell (click here) has waded into the health care debate with a broad endorsement of the kind of universal health plan found in Europe, Canada and South Korea.
"I am not an expert in health care, or Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, or however you choose to describe it, but I do know this: I have benefited from that kind of universal health care in my 55 years of public life," Powell said, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal, last week at an annual "survivors celebration breakfast" in Seattle for those who, like Powell, have battled prostate cancer. "And I don't see why we can't do what Europe is doing, what Canada is doing, what Korea is doing, what all these other places are doing."
Europe, Canada and Korea all have a "single-payer" system, in which the government pays for the costs of health care.
Some Democrats who strongly advocated for, and failed to get, a single-payer system in the 2010 Affordable Care Act, still believe the current law doesn't go far enough to reform the US health system....

I don't think the former Secretary of State annoys them any more than life itself annoys them. He would be great.

Run, Colin, run. You'll win. It will be fun, both the campaign and your leadership. Do calisthenics every morning on the lawn in front of the Capital. You'll have a crowd in no time.

...When asked at the Washington Ideas Forum Wednesday (click here)
 if he still considers himself a Republican, Powell said, “Yes, I’m still a Republican”, and highlighted his votes for “five presidents in a row who were Republican”, as well as his work for President Ronald Reagan and former Sen.
“I continue to be a Republican because it annoys them”, Powell told host Walter Isaacson.
The areas the former Secretary of State doesn’t see eye-to-eye with the GOP platform are climate change, immigration and education policy....

It is time for the USA to leave Afghanistan.

There is far too much military in Afghanistan for the problems that exist with the Taliban. The USA needs to remove it's war machines and personnel from the country. Transport the Doctors Without Borders staff home. Whatever medical supplies are left can still serve a purpose in Afghanistan.

The Kunduz attack was about survival and not about war. The Afghan government needs to deal with it's own dissidents.

Kabul – U.S. forces (click here) may have mistakenly bombed a hospital in northern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least three people in an incident that will likely raise new questions about the scope of American involvement in the country’s 14-year war.
In a statement, Doctors Without Borders said an airstrike “partially destroyed” their trauma hospital in Kunduz, where the Afghan military has been trying to drive Taliban fighters from the city.
The airstrike killed at least three hospital staffers while more than 30 others are still missing. It was not immediately clear how many patients were killed or wounded....

...In a statement, the U.S.-led coalition confirmed it carried out an airstrike about 2 a.m. Saturday in response to “individuals threatening the force.”...

...But in July, a coalition airstrike in mistakenly killed 10 Afghan soldiers, local officials said. Last month, Afghan officials accused the international coalition of killing 11 counternarcotic officers during an airstrike in Helmand Province....
