Wes, you are comparing completed suicides under the influence of alcohol to suicidal ideations, some unnamed amount of completed acts, and "attempts". There is a bit of a difference, you know. To be fair you'd have to roll in those same categories for those under the influence of etoh. Trust me, drunks often come in suicidal to the hospital. They usually recant their desire to end it when sober.

I appreciate the wisdom, Wes...

I'm afraid your gun control solution receives a big FAIL.
But, your gracious incantations tutored me with ideas of how to summon the spirits of the masses on SSRI...


"Wake up you fool!"

How to address individuals taking Zoloft for sleep disorders...


"So, pay attention, I've already done this at least ONCE for you..."

What you tell people on Zoloft for attention deficit disorder...


"Are you mental?"

What to ask depression patients on Zoloft...


"I'm sorry you are too blind to see the truth..."

...for those on Zoloft for cognition disorder


"Stop being an idiot."

...to the remaining millions taking Zoloft for headaches and other mild to minimal ailments

Jeebs, you've been drunk? It is harder to do sh#t, right? Like walk, tie a noose, etc. No doubt suicide attempts are less effective.

You been on Prozac? You feel 100% sober, 100% alert, 100% able to function... except things just ain't right... the voices tell you so. The biggest difference is you are quite able to do something about it.

jennie, you and your mormon pals just keep telling the rest of us how bad coffee and alcohol and weed and all the other natural drugs that have been around for millennia are for us... while filling your kids full of suicide pills engineered to fuk with their minds and have been around for less than the average human life span.

It's easier to inflict pain on yourself, you have less inhibitions, your emotions are out of control.... I'm not into the psychotropic fad, but these are all pretty slap dash comparisons.

Should psychotropic users have the same restrictions as those applicable to alcohol users?

Er, um, because the vote was basically split by party, Anderson. The definition of partisan.

Once again America will become the laughing stock of the First World industrialized countries.

We can't provide single payer universal health care for our citizens.

We continue with the barbaric, ineffective death penalty.

We refuse to make common sense adjustments to our gun policies.

There need to be strict term limits for Congress and for the Supreme Court.

Service to one's country should not mean a secure, high paying job leveraged by homage to lobbies and to intrinsically evil organizations such as the NRA.

I am starting to think that those government officials that are 100% pro guns need to watch out, because when the American people finally wake up, they will be armed and they will use those guns against them.

Nope. Totally different drugs with totally different effects. One has been tested for millenia, the other about 30-40 years.
