My Message To The Media!

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell: I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!
I want you to get up right now. Sit up. Go to your windows. Open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!…You’ve got to say, I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE! Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first, get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!

Dear Media:

This is my recommendation for the next time there is someone who goes on a rampage and starts to mow down multiples of people.  This is for when someone out of their own ignorance blames it on the community of bi-polar people

Where are the professionals such as the psychiatrists, psychologists, the clinicians.  I look for some network to have the intestinal fortitude to have these on the news segments debunking the myth that all serial killers are bi-polar.  That is not the case.  There is no evidence  to back up that claim, at least not from very credible sources.

Yes, I know I am only one voice, but, I am one irate voice who is tired of people spouting off baseless statements, using the bi-polar community as scapegoats.

So dear Media, it is time for someone, everyone, to stand up and shout, “We’re as mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore”.

  1. I know how mad someone who people see as mad feels to have the label of being “mad” and blamed for senseless acts of violence. Someone I love dearly has a label of being bi-polar with schizophrenic episodes–or something labelled like that.

    Labels are hurtful. The madder someone labelled mad gets…the more the label givers stand up and condemn the labeled one.

    Labels and name calling are verbal abuse. Abuse hurts self esteem. People with low self esteem and feelings of being unwanted, unloved, never measuring up, never good enough…need love and encouragement. Yikes…and when the DSM gives out labels and then gives out meds that are so addictive…that no one can get off them or go without them without having a psychotic break. One does want to scream.

    I don’t understand and I do understand why our culture can’t be more loving. Take care …people need people like you who are getting the word out…and asking people to rethink Scripture…where I think some of these attitudes came from–from people misunderstanding Mary Magdalene’s demons and the demon possession of others.

    1. Linda, thank you for your remarks. I intentionally stayed away from the word “mad”. I find it is too general. I remember my English classes and a lecture about the word. The teacher stressed that the word “mad” should only be used when you are speaking about a canine. It doesn’t bother me when people use it. Your comment just brought out the memory of my Grade Nine English teacher.
      Have a God Blessed Day!
