PTSD a recent disorder, from the Iraq war? Does her level of stupid ever decrease. Hey asshat, ever hear of Viet Nam, Korea, Ww2 ?What a moron. As moronic as the fools that elected her.


Just listening to her I'm thinking "this person's not all there" Even if I didn't know who I was hearing...

On to the newfangled PTSD thing.... Geroge Carlin did a great bit about the evolution of "Shell Shock" into PTSD.... I think that was around 1980?

"Euphemisms"... Yep - here it is....

WWI - Shell Shock

WWII - Battle Fatigue

Korea - Operational Exhaustion

Viet Nam - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder... "16 years ago" (Viet Nam ended) so that puts it around 1990 the video was done, but the "action" ended in '74.


....So much for Dim Flip's "new" disorder. Idiot.

I'll believe it when one of those vets uses her for target practice,.....

Using her for target practice would just prove a Vets SANITY. If it's a Vet no "practice" needed. One round will do it.

PTSD is just a new term for an old condition. But the thing that is newer (since the 1970's) is the lack of decompression and acceptance back into American society.
It used to be we won wars. The troops, for the most part, shipped home en masse on ship. That's the decompression.
A vet coming home after having served couldn't buy himself a drink because a grateful nation said "You're money's no good here. It's on me!" He could walk the streets all decked out in his class A's with his ribbons on his chest.

Men faced some pretty horrible stuff in WW1, WW2 but shell shock or battle fatigue did not make you a pariah. You were a hero. You were welcomed back by a proud nation. A nation that was glad you killed the enemy. A nation that had your back.

Vietnam marked a change in all that. In country one day. Get on a jet and you're home within days. Your unit, your buddies still overseas. Now you're home but there's no welcome. No parades. No movies portraying your heroism. You're warned to not wear your uniform or you get spit on, called baby killer and maybe assaulted. Nobody wants to hire you because of politics or they've been brainwashed into believing you're now a psycho or drug addict. Everywhere you hear and read how you did the wrong thing. Your government gives up it's half-hearted efforts and packs it in.

Now you get labeled unfit to own a firearm. You see illegals getting government help and you get the cold shoulder.

Actually, what she said was a bit different. In essence, "any vet could have PTSD and who would we know?" However, there's enough woo and baloney in what she did say, that I'd argue it was worse than the misquote.

[font="""]If I understand this, this [amendment] adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose [sic] in this regard during the ten years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that, you know, with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it's not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So, you know, I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you're going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don't have access to this kind of weapon.

Wow, what an imbecile! Where is the collective outcry for her to resign? If Feinstein really wanted to do something worth while for humanity, she should donate her brain to be studied. She is obviously very mentally disturbed. Thank you to all the men and women for your service. We here at LIF have your back!!

That in a broader scope can be applied to ANYONE!

Which then leads to requiring a psych exam and what shrink is going to sign off your safe to own a gun??

My head is spinning and venom is on the tip of my tongue so I'll try to behave.

There is only one course of action that is desperately required of this T#@T and all other liberals who feel the same way or have issues with what our men and women in the service do for us. Yes, everyone "hears" soldiers dying for our freedoms, etc but apparently these people don't comprehend what that entails. My idea is to take those freedoms away from them. Pack them the F up and ship them to any Commie country....or somewhere in the Middle East and let them live there for a few years. Only then will they appreciate what they had here and how it is those men and women who shed blood for this country that enabled them to have those freedoms....like voting for incompetent MF'ers, like starting your own business, like doing pretty much whatever it is you want to do....

People forget why the color red is in our nations flag....an experience like I indicated above would sure help to remind them!

Call it whatever you like, how TF would that cow have a clue? Even if she was going back to when the new language for the diagnosis was created (DSM-3 1980) it's still 36 years ago, nothing new about it.
The writer nailed his assessment of the voters electing her, I can't even wrap my mind around how effing stupid some of these "geniuses" are.
That they continue to politicize PTSD for whatever they think they are accomplishing boils my blood. Blood, sweat and tears reduced to sound bytes and fundraising.

Funny thing is Dianne Feinstien has PTSD. Seriously.

She used to conceal carry for years, and upon the assassination of Harvey Milk who basically died in her arms became an "anti" due to the emotional trauma. In some twisted ways she considers herself a gun expert.

She is in many ways mentally ill.

PTSD is not automatic just because someone experiences a traumatic event, for most people responses to trauma never reach a diagnosable threshold. Short term or acute effects are very common but they generally resolve.
She may have PTSD, I don't know. But I thought this was a good opportunity to remind folks that PTSD, like so many other things, has become a default definition in this country for the wanna be "victims" of so many things.
It dilutes the reality and the importance of public perception and understanding of what PTSD is.
