Michael Moore On SSRI Anti-Depressants

Home - by - February 7, 2013 - 20:15 America/New_York - 23 Comments

Michael Moore sounding lucid, for a change. BUT, anyone that saw Bowling For Columbine knows that Moore blamed the shootings on Lockheed. His theory was that the presence of the “war machine” company in the town caused these kids to be violent.

Now, his theory has changed. And I think he’s onto something. He’ll never admit, however, that the government should back off on gun control and look into self control, and the root cause for the lack of it, which is progressivism.

    Whoa, that made sense. Are you sure that wasn’t a “Rent-a-Michael-Moore”?

    Sarcasm aside, it’s good to hear him say this.

    Desperation, real or imagined, in teenagers and young adults is the real issue. The drugs are the bandaid.

    They see a very real chance that the dreams they have for their lives will never come to be, and in these unprecedented times, they may have a more of viable concern than we had at that age.

    I don’t know the answer is either, but our generation wasn’t from Mars, and we made it through without these drugs.

    Still can’t stand Michael Moore though, and if he had a lucid moment, he stole it from someone else.

    Never watched any of Fat Bastard’s films. Cannot stand the Moore twins.

    I’ll have to read a few more comments before I will watch a video about the giant slug.

    OK Alex Jones, he did not mention SSRIs specifically why are you? Many MANY people depend on SSRIs to function in society, to earn a living, to pay for their kids colleges. A drug, that sucks with side effects – that everybody that is on it hates – is Yet Another Inanimate Object (YAIO) to blame bad parenting on and the liberal destruction of the father figure, blame homosexuality attack on marriage and the nuclear family.

    Hey I’m crazy. I have been committed involuntarily. I grew up as a hunter and fisher and its part of the life blood that makes me who I am. I have been SSRI’s for 20+ years — you wanna know why? If I don’t have them I’m f*cking crazy!

    These knew flex reactions against guns and SSRIs are infantile and uninformed. Yes we have a mental health problem but intelligent people ask why? Could it be our diets? Could it be our insane culture? Could it be the crap pumped into our brains from Hollyweird, our educational institutions and are political system.

    Stop and think before you come to quick easy sounding solutions.

    drunken blogging sucks — but you’ll understand the emotional appeal.

    A lot LOT of people on are on SSRIs why? A tiny percentage of the freak out.

    A lot LOT of people own guns and a tiny percentage of them freak out.

    Your answer?

    Don’t let people in SSRI’s buy guns. I’ll offer you this, many people on SSRI’s are more sane than the average idiot that refuses to medicate!

    @Alpha Naser–

    SSRIs, like any other powerful drug, are extremely helpful when used correctly. No one should be disputing that.

    One problem comes when prescriptions of them are handed out indiscriminately, especially to children and young people whose brains have not fully developed. When strong medication is prescribed for anything and everything, as a sort of short-cut to healing what ails you, then that is malpractice of a very high order.

    Statistics show that this is happening in increasing rates, especially for young people. Strong medication–such as SSRIs–is not a crutch, nor is it a universal panacea. It is a medical tool, useful in certain situations, but NOT appropriate for all.

    @AM – it’s not one thing in particular to blame (i.e.,SSRI’s), but rather a combination of factors, such as meds, parenting, degenerate moral culture, removal of a God-centered life, etc., etc.

    This particular interview of Fattie Moore was encouraging because he finally broke from the standard liberal playbook, and actually seemed to have a lucid moment.

    “Modern Medicine” has no cures for MOST problems that afflict people. Almost the entire business of BIG-Pharma treats symptoms. Think about it, if they actually cured people nobody would need drugs for treatments of symptoms which BIG-Pharma depends on.

    The only drugs that actually work are antibiotics and they were discovered and refined decades ago (no patents left on those). Can you name one drug that cures anything serious?

    Nope. Surgical techniques in this country refined from years and years of wars are highly refined. Medicine in America is a joke worth ridiculing. What is the major emphasis in this country for treatment?

    Medicine which pretty much all sucks. ALL mental health treatments only mitigate symptoms – they don’t cure anything. This is true for Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Cancer as well. Modern “medicine” heals nearly nothing. The human body heals itself better than anything known to modern technology.

    Alpha, I agree with you SSRIs should not prohibit a law-abiding citizen from firearm ownership. Patients with psychosis and certain personality disorders are another matter since they lack the capacity to be consistently rational.

    But one of the things patients on SSRIs should NOT do is drink to excess. Self-medication with alcohol can indicate unresponsive depression. That means that maybe you should check with your doctor regarding balancing your meds and talk about why you are drinking to excess. Please take care of yourself, you are worth it.

    Alpha Maser, try Noni juice. You can get it from most health food stores. You won’t like the taste at first but it is the best thing in the world for pain and inflammation, and they use it also to treat depression and for people who are trying to get off a drug habit, diabetes and other things.

    All drugs are toxins — alcohol included. Noni is the only thing I take, it works and there are no side effects, just benefits to your health. It is not a drug but it is about 70% as effective as morphine for alleviating pain. Best thing available for inflammation too. Take one to four ounces on an empty stomach and don’t eat for 20 minutes. I saw results immediately but it could take up to a couple of weeks for your body to get used to it.

    I wish you all the good health the Good Lord will give.

    … make sure to get the 100% Polynesian or Hawaiian juice, not the mixed or diluted. You can mix it with grape juice or just be a man and drink it straight like i do.

    I was in college when Bowling for Columbine was in the theaters. My university played it on campus (admission was $1), and I took the opportunity to see it in a way that would give Moore as little of my money as possible.

    I remember well the part you (BFH) mentioned about Lockheed, I was a writer for one of the school papers back then (the only conservative writer on the entire campus of a very large school) and I was planning on doing a column about the lies in his movie.

    The Lockheed one, if memory serves, was one of the biggest whoppers. He filmed what looks like a missile, and I remember thinking at the time “how did they allow cameras to capture a flippin’ missile?”…

    They didn’t.

    It was a rocket that launched communication satellites into space. The argument later by Moore’s people was that the aim of the question of WMD’s on the culture was intended to be a general one, which is a disingenuous, IMO. Moore was trying to relate it directly to Columbine, and he had to lie for it to work.
