Don't worry - be happy! Government is here to help

"A socialist is somebody who doesn't have anything, and is ready to divide it up equally among everybody." ~ George Bernard Shaw

If the ever-constant move toward a socialistic government is enough to make you cry, don't worry! Government has a solution to that as well.

From the Drudge Report:

NANNY STATE: GOVERNMENT WEBSITE TO WARN OF SADNESS/CRYING OVER ECONOMY
Mon Mar 30 2009 18:43:56 ET

The U.S. government is set to offer an online emotional rescue kit!

"Getting Through Tough Economic Times" will launch Tuesday with a media push across all platforms.

The site is meant to help people identify health concerns related to financial worries.

The feds will warn of depression, suicidal thinking and other serious mental illnesses. It will raise warning flags for: Persistent sadness/crying; Excessive anxiety; Lack of sleep/constant fatigue; Excessive irritability/anger.

The guide will be available starting at midnight at http://www.samhsa.gov/economy.

The site is live now and it offers such advice as: "Trying to keep things in perspective - recognize the good aspects of life and retain hope for the future."

See? Government actions drive you to the brink and waiting there is ... government! Because without a government website to help you identify health concerns, you wouldn't know you had them. And, true to form, government will offer solutions, because without government, you wouldn't be able to seek solutions on your own.

And if you are not one of the ones suffering distress over your financial conditions, you can help, too!

Encourage community-based organizations and groups to provide increased levels of mental health treatment and support to those who are severely affected by the economy.

Yep, because as government continues to spend us into oblivion, increasing debt beyond understanding, it will create more distress among the citizens, resulting in more need for government spending to help us recover from the travails inflicted upon us by government.

It's a never-ending circular trap. It's a good thing government has the issued covered.

Maggie,

What a surprise that the first "community activist" should direct people to community-based organizations.

One potential little problem with this though, the new budget reduces the tax deductions for giving to non-profit organizations. This means that there will be fewer left ... except of course those like ACORN who will be receiving government funding.

I guess that will solve the problem, as we will then have "government approved" community organizations. Never mind ...
