Sense of entitlement can lead to poor relationships, interpersonal conflicts, and depression

A new study suggests a belief in entitlement can lead to dire psychology and social costs. 

Case Western Reserve University researchers discovered entitlement, defined as a personality trait driven by exaggerated feelings of deservingness and superiority — may lead to chronic disappointment, unmet expectations, and a habitual, self-reinforcing cycle of behavior.

In a new theoretical model, investigators mapped how entitled personality traits may lead to a perpetual loop of distress.

The findings appear in the Psychological Bulletin.

“At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy, and disappointed with life,” said Joshua Grubbs, the primary author of the paper and a…

Fort Hood opens debate about secrecy of medical records | TheHill

Camel’s nose under the tent alert:  Here we go.  This will be the meme of the coming years.  Your mental status has potential effects on the collective and so your privacy, your guns, your mind, your soul, your freedom and self-ownership are belong to us now.

Never mind that the discussion should be directed toward how a person should defend themselves against the aggression initiated by another.  Let’s instead talk about how ‘we’ prevent all aggression, at all times, in all places and at all costs to individual rights and sovereignty.  Lets instead discuss how we can all suffer for  the benefit of an amorphous ‘society’, instead of how we can empower ourselves as individuals to  protect ourselves.

I don’t know where to start with this tripe, so read it for yourself at TheHill.

Disgusted, Grey Enigma.

Army officials say one thing that could have helped prevent last week’s shooting at Fort Hood is better information sharing with commanders about the mental and behavioral health histories of incoming soldiers.

The shooter, Spc. Ivan Lopez, 34, had arrived at Fort Hood, Texas, in February after being stationed for four years at Fort Bliss, Texas. By the time of his transfer, Lopez had a history of mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, and was prescribed a number of prescription drugs, including Ambien.

But receiving commanders at Fort Hood would not have been privy to Lopez’s health history.

“Here’s the biggest problem we have. … It’s a dilemma,” said Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno. “The problem is sharing information and how you protect an individual’s rights with sharing information, so the commanders and the people at the lower level understand that, maybe, there was a previous problem.”

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act HIPAA, a soldier’s mental and behavioral health record is kept private from his or her new commander. Thus, while physicians at a new base would have access to soldiers’ health records, a commander would not.“If a soldier has mental health counseling at Fort Bragg, N.C., and he moves to Fort Carson, Colo., sometimes we have difficulty moving that information with them, because of patient HIPAA….

Baby monkeys given standard doses of popular vaccines develop autism symptoms | Natural News

If vaccines play absolutely no role in the development of childhood autism, a claim made by many medical authorities today, then why are some of the most popular vaccines commonly administered to children demonstrably causing autism in animal primates? This is the question many people are now asking after a recent study conducted by scientists at the University of Pittsburgh UP in Pennsylvania revealed that many of the infant monkeys given standard doses of childhood vaccines as part of the new research developed autism symptoms.

NY gun law concerns mental health professionals | LeaderHerald

Area mental health professionals say they’re concerned about an aspect of the state’s new gun law requiring them to report potentially dangerous patients.

The New York State SAFE Act includes a section designed to “…remove firearms from those who seek to do harm to themselves or others.” The law requires reporting by doctors, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers and registered nurses to advise authorities.

Since that provision of the law took effect March 16, officials have received at least 30 reports of people whose gun licenses should be reviewed, state police say. Continue reading

Ann Barnhardt on the goings on in the Vatican | Barnhardt.biz

…The 300 page dossier by the three cardinals on the homosexual mafia and the homosexual cardinals WILL BE READ ALOUD AT THE CONCLAVE in the presence of ALL of the voting cardinals with NAMES NAMED after the oath of secrecy is taken.  These recent resignations of cardinals may very well be the sodomites running scared.

And yes, the Vatican sodomites are tied to the Vatican bank. Are we really shocked that sexual perversion and financial crimes are linked? You people who are STILL falling for the “what people do in their sex lives doesn’t matter” meme have got to wake up.

Sex, be it homo or hetero, DOES MATTER. Bill Clinton’s escapades with Monica DID MATTER, because if a person can operate in the realm of sexuality with zero morality, shame or remorse, what do you think that implies about their business dealings, political dealings or their general psychological state? Sexual perversion and promiscuity are directly correlated to sociopathy and psychopathy. Sane people don’t treat other people like pieces of meat. Sane people don’t treat themselves like pieces of meat. Sane people regard other people as subjects, not objects. Sane people have consciences. Sane people have standards of decency and are repelled by sexual perversion…

Mom takes on smart meters over privacy, health concerns | McClatchy

Of course they  have to paint these brave folks as tofu-brained, big brother deluded wackos:

Non-compliance will be punished comrades… Heil Das Amerika.

Seriously though, think about this:  You are coerced into a monopolistic, sole-sourced relationship with your electricity provider.  You have no real recourse regarding the physical plant that serves your buildings (although you do have a shell-game of selections of primary electricity sources in some areas).  Thus, should not the state extend additional protections from ALL predatory / dictatorial actions by these state mandated sole source suppliers that you are tied to?

These brave women carrying the ball forward for you and I:

A mother of three who buys organic food and worries about the dangers of “dirty electricity” has become the face of resistance in Naperville, Ill.

Led away in handcuffs after trying to prevent the installation of a “smart meter” on her home, Jennifer Stahl vows to continue the protest movement that has made this suburban community ground zero in a battle over privacy rights versus modern technology.

“This is unreasonable search and seizure,” said Stahl, 40, who believes the devices designed to monitor power usage are intrusive and pose a health risk. “It definitely is not OK for my utility … to know when I’m home and not home.” Continue reading
