A year or so ago, there were a spate of articles about the red pill videos on YouTube – millennials turning off to the bullying by feminists and race hustlers, thinking for themselves, becoming conservative, and posting a video of their personal journey from blue to red online. I googled ‘red pill’ and had a cheerful time following links.
Our children go through so much in life with school, bullies, and learning the lessons they need in life. Childhood is a difficult time of tough lessons and chores and it is a parent’s job to make sure their children learn the things that they need. One of the things that a lot of children deal with are mental disorders that can inhibit their ability to grow and progress is the way that they need to.
There are a growing number of children, between the ages of 3 and 17, that are dealing with these types of disorders and various warning signs that parents need to watch out for so that they can intervene as soon as possible.
- Children who become easily aggravated or frustrated with school or peer pressure could be dealing with a mental issue. There are times where bullying can play a part in this, but it needs to be addressed either way. Many times these children will make excuses for why they cannot go to school in order to avoid the issues.
- Children should be able to live a worry and carefree life and kids that worry extensively could be battling with undiagnosed issues. They may carry extensive worry about things like catching the bus on time or things that may not happen, but they feel the need to worry about them.
- A lot of adolescents have bouts of depression that if not dealt with can lead to bigger, more significant issues. They can exhibit depressive or withdrawn behavior on a regular basis that can turn to habits that make the issues worse.
- A child’s performance in school can be a warning signal that parents need to be vigilant of. Kids with these type of disorders have issues with concentration and have behavioral issues within the classroom and with other students. They also have habitual issues with reading, math, and science due to issues with focus and concentration.
- Long-term drug or alcohol abuse by a teen could be a sign of self-medication. They may be turning to these substances, just like adults do, to deal with the feelings and thoughts that they don’t want to deal with.
The World Health Organization has reported that 10-20% of children and adolescents deal with a mental disorder. The 5 most popular diagnosis for children between the ages of 3 and 17 are Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety, depression, and Autism spectrum disorders. It does need to be kept in mind that some of these numbers are due to over-diagnosis, which is a problem in it of itself.
One of the worst things about these disorders are the outlying conditions and situations that they can lead to. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in teenagers and many times this is a result of a mental disorder that has not been diagnosed or even noticed. Many times, a lack of self-esteem is another big issue that revolves around these disorders as well because children are not given the proper tools to handle and cope with the situation they are in.

Yesterday, Putin observed the necessity of increasing Russia’s economic sovereignty and independence from the petrodollar system, stressing that the West is boosting this process through its economic bullying in the form of sanctions. TASS reports: MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin considers necessary to strengthen the national economic sovereignty and anti-Russian sanctions are helpful in this aspect. “We need to increase the level of our economic sovereignty but this is not a straightforward decision,” the head of state said. “Oil is traded in dollars on the exchange,” Putin said. “Certainly, we are thinking about what we need to do in order to get free of this burden. Furthermore, our partners are helping us by introducing all these unlawful restrictions and violating principles of the global trade, because the whole world sees the dollar monopoly is unreliable; it is dangerous for many, not only for us,” he added. “This is not merely a separation from the dollar; this refers to the need of strengthening our economic sovereignty,” Putin said. “Our gold and foreign currency reserves undergo diversification and we will continue to do it,” he added. Generally speaking, any country that wants to buy oil needs to buy dollars first, with which to accomplish the commodity purchase, which is a major aspect of the dollar’s global hegemony in international trade. The US, in attempting to maintain this, has been resorting to international bullying in its sanctions and financial practices, which, continuing down this path, is only ensuring America’s eventual irrelevance on the global economical stage.
The end to bullying may be had at the hands of parenting education, parents in general being the least educated faction of our infantile culture, descendant from the more civilized days when our precedents lived in the tribe and people were more important …
With the ongoing storyline between Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss, we need to see Alexa become the face of WWE’s anti-bullying campaign. Although the WWE is heavily pushing their “Women’s Evolution” and the progress of women’s wrestling, we have seen a few things that make us scratch our heads.
Former Rep. Blake Farenthold (Texas-R) responded on Wednesday to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s request for him to foot the bill for a special election to replace the seat he vacated last month.
Farenthold resigned April 6 following an investigation into a 2015 sexual misconduct suit that was settled using $84,000 in taxpayer funds.
In December, Farenthold announced his retirement and planned to complete his term, but changed his mind because of continued “bullying from many Democrats, the press, and trolls on social media,” he said in his letter to Abbott.
What’s the story?
Abbott asked Farenthold in a letter last week to pay for the “emergency” special election approved by Attorney General Ken Paxton. Hurricane Harvey directly hit Farenthold’s district and is still trying to recover from the extensive damage, The Texas Tribune reported.
Farenthold initially said he would personally repay the taxpayer funds used to settle the suit with his former communications director, Lauren Greene, who claimed Farenthold created a vulgar and hostile work environment.
He has not repaid the money, citing the advice of his lawyers.
Similarly, Farenthold told Abbott in his letter that he would not be paying for the June 30 special election.
“Since I didn’t call it and don’t think it’s necessary, I shouldn’t be asked to pay for it,” he wrote.
Farenthold wrote that his former office is operating and taking care of matters that need handling until his replacement is elected in November.
In his four-page letter, Farenthold said it would have appeared as a bribe if he had used his money to pay the settlement with Greene and denied any wrongful use of taxpayer funds.
Farenthold pointed to the 1995 Congressional Accountability Act that allows for payment of awards and settlements, adding that he was “unanimously exonerated” from claims that he sexually harassed or discriminated against Greene.
He said he has no intentions of funding the special election, adding that he would continue working to “protect and defend the Constitution, keep Texas red and make America great again.”
What did Gov. Abbott say?
A spokeswoman for Abbott told the Tribune that Farenthold’s decision was “disappointing,” but “it’s not surprising that his last act would be to stick taxpayers with the bill at the worst possible time.”
“While Mr. Farenthold may consider this resolved, we’re not closing the case on this issue,” Ciara Matthews, Abbott’s deputy communications director said.
