College Snowflakes have a psychiatric disorder

This is terrible news; not only are these tender things melting at 0° in stead of 32° but they cannot handle the quotidian exigencies they’ll have to face. It is going to be a long year.

New Concerns Arise About Mental Health Of College Students

New concerns arise about the mental health of students on college campuses all across the country.

Dr. Gene Beresin, a psychiatrist and Executive Director of The Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital, says 50% to 60% of college students have a psychiatric disorder.

“What I’m including in that is the use of substances, anxiety, depression, problems with relationships, break-ups, academic problems, learning disabilities, attentional problems,” says Dr. Beresin. “If you add them all up 50% doesn’t seem that high.”

Some undergraduates at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) agree.

“People go through tough times,” says Dane Erickson, a rising junior from Naples, Florida. “It’s really stressful sometimes here at school.”

“I know a couple of friends who had a difficult first semester last year,” explains Maddie Burgoyne, a rising sophomore from Michigan.

Dr. Beresin says the suicide rate in college in astronomical. “A college student kills himself every day,” he says. [snip]

What will they do if they’re caught out in the open with no safe space in the immediate area? Suppose some nefarious individual utters a “TRIGGER’ word and another underclassman isn’t there to clutch and comfort them.Safe zone worryOne of the most serious fractures in the world of the safe nest is going to happen just before mid-terms: The Presidential Election. They’re going to hear Donald Trump’s name echoing all around the quad, reflecting off the buildings and sneaking into the dorms.

What will the RA’s and RD’s do if Trump wins? There will be no shelter available to protect the tender minds from the heat of the Trump win.

The bodies will be stacked deep in those tiny safe rooms, brains leaking out of their ears.
The school will have to make up the tuition loss by selling tours.

Daily Insanity

When the University of Chicago placed the letter stating the College does not support safe spaces and trigger warnings, that ripped the fabric of time and sanity for the SJW’s They immediately tipped over, started frothing at the mouth and now are claiming it is “The End of Days” according to them.

University to Freshmen: Don’t Expect Safe Spaces or Trigger Warnings

We do not support so-called ‘trigger warnings,’ we do not cancel invited speakers because their topics might prove controversial, and we do not condone the creation of intellectual ‘safe spaces.'”

Well it didn’t take long for the anti-free speech crowd to stop playing with themselves and get into a snit.

Social Justice Warriors Predictably Freak Out Over University Of Chicago’s ‘No Safe Space’ Policy

Bla-bla[snip] Well, to no one’s surprise, the social justice warriors’ blood pressure went through the roof when the news broke. Emily Zanotti of Heat Street had more on these precious liberals losing their hair over UoC declaring that they’re for academic freedom. What horrible people, right?

One student told DNA Info that the administration was asking students to “check their compassion and their experiences at the door.” Another, the head of the campus sexual assault survivors network, said that this was simply the latest failure by the college to cater to interest groups.

“The administration has a huge problem with transparency, and they have been slow to address issues related to sexual violence, disability injustice, police discrimination and many more,” she said.

Vox posted an op-ed accusing the college of “exercising power” over its students, calling trigger warnings “pedagogical imperatives.” The piece also defended students who shouted down or ousted controversial speakers from other campuses, saying that they “challenge” academic professors and “hold us accountable” for their institutional biases.

The New Republic whined that the University of Chicago was “attacking academic freedom” by telling students to think more critically about shutting down speakers and shutting off conversation. [snip]

Illegal Immigration

Clearly it is in the Democrats favor to support amnesty; the Latinos will vote for them and may be doing so through voter fraud now. What is in it for the Republicans? Hispanics are not going to vote for the GOP. Past records prove that.

5 Questions Pro-Amnesty Republicans Never Seem To Answer

[snip] It’s harder to understand why any elected Republicans or Republican consultants would support this idea – well, if you ignore the fact that it’s driven almost entirely by large amounts of cash being moved from the pockets of businesses that want to profit from illegal labor to the pockets of the GOP Establishment. If you took that money out of the equation, there would be very few Republicans who back amnesty.

Because the people who are pocketing this money can’t just say, “Look, Mark Zuckerberg is kicking in the max to my campaign; so of course I’m backing amnesty,” they spend most of their time fighting straw men and trying to distract people. None of these guys, not John McCain, Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham or Jeb Bush can answer the most basic questions anyone has about this. (emphasis added) In fact, when you raise the most obvious questions that should be the first things anyone asks on the issue, immediately they start shouting “nativist, xenophobe,” falsely claiming that a fence won’t work and sneering, “What, you can deport every last person who broke the law? That’s IMPOSSIBLE!” [snip]

Yet, they never seem to answer the basic questions like….:

  1. How do Republicans continue to get elected if we make millions of illegal aliens into citizens who will vote heavily against us?
    Romney received 27% of the Hispanic vote and lost to Barack Obama by roughly 5 million votes.
  2. Why do you believe supporting amnesty will make Hispanic Americans vote for the GOP?
    There simply isn’t much evidence that support for amnesty is the key to the Hispanic vote. If it was, why wouldn’t Hispanic Americans ALREADY be backing the GOP after Reagan signed onto a “one time” amnesty?
  3. Why would anyone believe that if we give illegals citizenship or legalized status that we’ll get any better security in return?
    Reagan already cut that deal with the Democrats — a “one time” amnesty in exchange for security. They didn’t honor their part of the agreement and today, Barack Obama is openly defying existing law to facilitate more illegal immigration.
  4. If we’re not going to deport illegals now, why would anyone believe we’ll deport them later?
    There is no logical or effective way to deal with illegal immigration that doesn’t center on deportation.
  5. How does it benefit America to make Illegal aliens citizens?
    I know it seems a bit passé in these days and times to actually consider what’s best for the country before taking a position on an issue, but it seems particularly relevant in this case. Millions of Americans have been victimized by criminal acts committed by illegal aliens. Every one of those rapes, murders, thefts and other crimes wouldn’t have happened if our borders were secure.  When you look at the decline of the rule of law in America, the special treatment illegal aliens are getting is a big part of it. What moral case is there for following our laws if whole classes of people are allowed to break them with impunity? Moreover, 62% of illegal alien households are getting welfare. Why in the world would we want people who are collecting a welfare check to be given the privilege of American citizenship? Why would we want to make millions of people who are likely to stay poor long term because of a lack of education and difficulties with English into American citizens? Moreover, once illegals become citizens and aren’t just relying on their American born kids to sponge off everyone else, the number of government programs they’re eligible for would skyrocket. When you’re talking about making illegals into citizens, first and foremost you’re talking about importing more poverty into our country in the futile hope that it will somehow make life better for everyone else. That’s just not how the world works.

Any other country will either jail you, fine you and/or confiscate your valuables or immediately after fining you, put you back across the border with a warning don’t come back.
If you come in by commercial airline, you are put back on that plane and flown out at that airlines expense. Minus a suitable fine of course.

Welfare, hospitalization or social help? Bring money if you are legal; illegals get bupkis. That means shutting off the welfare food stamps, free hospital ER or anything government supplied. Schools are available but only if the illegals prove they paid taxes to the district just as a citizen has to do.

We don’t have to hunt down illegals for deportation. Cut off the work and check that through E-Verify. If someone hires an illegal, that illegals is deported immediately and the owner of the company gets a hefty fine, say $100,000 per individual. Those fraudulent Social Security numbers will bounce regardless of the driver license and other state paperwork. Just like Obama’s bounces.

They will self-deport; as Donald Trump states, they can come back legally in line and go through the process which keeps them off the welfare rolls.
The kids if born here can stay, be put up for adoption with legal families or go back and return with their parents.

You will see a huge decrease in our budget, our debt and in the need to increase taxes. All comes as a bonus for not having to support Mexico and Central America.

Jewish Humor

There is a small Kentucky town that owns just one cow. It’s an important cow because it provides much of the town with their daily milk.
But when the cow dies suddenly, the mayor meets the townsfolk and tells them, “I know a cattle dealer from just across the State line in Illinois who’s willing to sell us a replacement cow for only $300. What do you think?” The townsfolk immediately vote in favour. And what a fantastic purchase this turns out to be because from day one onwards, the cow starts to produce an abundance of milk.

Six months later, the townsfolk buy a bull to mate with their cow. They aim to breed a few more ‘productive’ cows just like the one they have and never again have to worry about ‘milk supply’ problems. But things don’t work out as planned because every time the bull tries to mount the cow, the cow quickly moves away. This goes on non-stop for two weeks and so the mayor calls in Hymie The Vet to help solve their problem.

“Hymie,” says the mayor, “no matter how the bull tries to mount the cow, whether he approaches her from the left, or from the right, or from behind, he just can’t ‘get his way’ with her. She just always moves away. What do you think is happening?”

“Your story is a very interesting one,” replies Hymie, “but I think I have an explanation. I’ve come across this type of behaviour many times before. Did you buy your cow from Illinois?”

The mayor is amazed. He never thought their cow’s birthplace had anything to do with her behaviour. “Yes, it’s true,” replies the mayor, “our cow did come from Illinois. How did you know?”

With a vacant look in his eye, Hymie replies, “Because my wife originates from Illinois.”
