U.S. doctors should regularly screen all adults under 65 for anxiety, an influential health guidelines group proposed Tuesday. It's the first time the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has recommended anxiety screening in primary care for adults without symptoms. The proposal is open for public comment until Oct. 17, but the group usually affirms its draft guidance. The recommendations are based on a review that began before the Covid-19 pandemic, evaluating studies showing potential benefits and risks from screening. Given reports of a surge in mental health problems linked with pandemic isolation and stress, the guidance is "very timely," said Lori Pbert, a task force member and co-author.

Anxiety, the heart and soul of New York City (based on the average headline printed in the New York Times), goes nationwide.

No! I am too scared to get an anxiety screening. /s off REALLY? You gotta be kidding me. This is like the TV shows which seem to indicate that in NYC, where so many TV shows are set, about every third person is seeing a psychiatrist, and everyone thinks that this is normal.

Sounds like another excuse for Big Pharma to make big $$$ and the government to get/mandate more of the population on meds to make it easier to control them. I will pass on that.

Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin and protect us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. See, we don't need no stinking health care professionals. Our forefathers built and maintained and supported institutions who served the needs of society in several ways, including this. Join in prayer with others, see if that doesn't help you anxieties

It was Thoreau who aid, in the mid-19th century, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." At about the same time, Lincoln said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I think they were both right. Anxiety is part of the human experience. You can choose whether or not to focus on it. But, today, having a "diagnosis" is a status symbol. Everybody wants to be a victim.

Because we don't already have enough Americans on anti-anxiety medication. Let's get everyone stoned on Big Pharma anti-depressants. Let's also force the insurance companies to pay for it so our costs in that area can increase also, thus justifying the use of anti-depressants. It's one big corporate circle jerk.

This will go in your health records and be used to prevent you from owning a firearm. Right now it is acceptable for doctors to ask if you have a history of depression and if so ask if there is a firearm in your home.

The Jan. 6 committee has reached an agreement with Ginni Thomas to be interviewed in the coming weeks, a source close to the House panel told NBC News on Wednesday. Emails, records and reporting indicate that Thomas, a conservative activist and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, was involved in some aspects of a scheme involving “fake electors” after the 2020 election and was also in touch with Trump lawyer John Eastman about his strategies to overturn the election results. CNN first reported the planned meeting with Thomas. Thomas first came under scrutiny for messages to former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows and state lawmakers

Washington — A federal appeals court on Wednesday granted a request from the Justice Department to allow its investigators to regain access to the roughly 100 documents bearing classification markings that were seized by the FBI during its search at former President Donald Trump's Florida residence. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit agreed to put on hold a lower court's order that kept the subset of sensitive records off-limits for the Justice Department to use for investigative purposes, pending the review of the materials by an independent arbiter known as a special master. In its 29-page opinion, the panel said it agreed

Martha’s Vineyard said it was stressed when about 50 migrants were flown to the exclusive island enclave this month. In Brooks County, Texas, Sheriff Urbino “Benny” Martinez had to laugh. His county has already seen that many migrants this year, just counting dead bodies. Some 78 migrants, all victims of the treacherous journey, have been collected from ranchlands in the county. That adds to the 119 bodies last year. Each costs money to gather, handle and autopsy. The sheriff said the county spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to do that work.

Eighteen-year-old Cayler Ellingson was hit and killed by a man driving a car in McHenry, North Dakota. Now, that’s a horrible story, but the initial facts coming out on the case make it even more troubling: It wasn’t an accident. Ellingson had been out at a street dance when he called his mother to rescue him, because he said he was being chased by 41-year-old Shannon Brandt. But by the time she reached him, Cayler was dead. What Brandt allegedly admitted about the killing was chilling. “He was the one who called 911 to report the crash,” said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.

Ron DeSantis is running for president. No, he hasn’t announced his candidacy or started flying off to Iowa or New Hampshire. But he is refining his pitch to voters, and I have to say he makes a strong case. I admit that I am biased. I think Ron DeSantis is the smartest and most compelling Republican politician since Ronald Reagan. This is not a slam on former president Trump. Love him or hate him, Trump took a moribund Republican Party and created an entirely new political coalition that will endure long after he exits the stage. Trump deserves credit for a Republican rebirth and for exposing the fundamental corruption

Even before the newly-inaugurated Joe Biden began carrying through with his open borders promises in January 2021, a border crisis of staggering proportions was rapidly developing along the southern border of the United States expressly due to what Biden said throughout his campaign that he would do if elected. “I would, in fact, make sure that there is — we immediately surge to the border.

Most days, Stacey Abrams must regret not jumping at the chance to be placed on President Biden’s cabinet or in the office currently occupied by Vice President Kamala Harris. Abrams spent too much time reading the glowing press about her role in turning Georgia blue in 2020. It made her delusional enough to take a second crack at the Governor’s Mansion. However, according to a new poll from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, she could lose so badly in 2022 that not even screeching “Voter suppression!” will excuse her loss. Incumbent governor Brian Kemp is polling at 50%, ahead of Abrams at 42%. Kemp also enjoys a 54% approval rating in the state.

An outspoken critic of so-called “woke capitalism” is publicly urging corporate giants Apple and Disney to keep politics out of their businesses. Vivek Ramaswamy, the founder of investment firm Strive Asset Management, demanded that Apple and Disney prioritize profits while avoiding political discourse that could tarnish their brands. Strive has acquired stakes in each company since launching earlier this year with a mandate to challenge the corporate emphasis on environmental, social and governance standards, otherwise known as “ESG.” Ramaswamy, who authored a best-selling book titled “Woke, Inc.” argued that Disney’s decision to wade into political debates, such as the kerfuffle over Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, risked financial harm to shareholders

I’ll have an article on Ken Burns exploiting the Holocaust to call for open borders and bash Republicans while covering up FDR’s role in the Holocaust later this week, but the sheer awfulness of it can be summed up in this paragraph from the equally antisemitic Guardian which never stops calling for the destruction of the Jewish State or justifying the murder of Jews. It may be Burns’s most didactic film yet as it ends provocatively with images of Dylann Roof, who shot and killed nine African American congregants at a church in South Carolina; white supremacists marching with flaming torches in Charlottesville, Virginia, chanting

In 1990, Ken Burns was the great talent behind The Civil War, an epic nine-episode PBS documentary that he made for PBS. It was comprehensive, gorgeous, heartbreaking, and riveting. His later work wasn’t as good but it was still damned good. But Burns, like so many leftists, is now so riddled with hatred for Republicans that he cheapens his every utterance and destroys his own legacy. The latest example is how he’s used his upcoming documentary, The US and the Holocaust, to bash modern Republicans and cover for WWII-era Democrats.
