    If you think folks weren't traumatized by a Presidential election you weren't around a college campus when W. got elected the first time, or a retirement center or the Villages when Obama won.

    Being traumatized is one thing. And for normal folks...it's something that usually passes within a few hours or maybe a few days. Especially when it concerns a political election. We aren't talking about losing a loved one... You know...something that really can be and is traumatizing. But actually needing a coping and balance workshop to help deal with said traumatization from a political election? C'mon? Really?

    Attending high school and college through the late 80's and early 90's I can't say I ever heard of or saw these types of behavioral characteristics.

    When I was in college, we didn't have therapy dogs to de-stress.

    We had Lucky Lager.

    My brother lives near the Villages. After a few Happy Hours in the squares there I understood why it has one of, perhaps the highest STD rate per capita in the United States; Boomers and Geezers partying like it's Spring break.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    I feel for him. I really do.

    As far as the STD rates go, well, the place gets some weird news, even by FL standards. It's like a Hiassen book, only stranger.

    Eh, that is overboard in a lot of ways, Joe. I'll give you that. However, I do find it convenient that it fits the far right anti-intellectual narrative very, very well. That narrative is that all college people are out-of -touch snowflakes and pussies. Gut instinct is better than book learning; hard labor is preferable to hard study; scientific facts are often conspiracy theories; the uneducated masses are the only real Americans.

    I hope one day you realize you are being played.

    My dad lived there with his wife while they were waiting for their house in Utah to get built. They seemed to like it a lot.

    BTW working with FEMA you know who the most entitled whiners were demanding their handouts? Rich people.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    You realize this is just an excuse to take your dog to a restaurant.
