    I've heard on the radio and read in the news this morning that middle age suicide rates have reached all time highs since they began keeping records on suicide. I'm not surprised given all the stress and strains in the country and world. I also heard on the radio this morning that suicide rates peak during Republican/conservative government administrations and are lowest during Democratic/liberal government administrations. Ya think maybe liberals care about the general population whereas the conservatives only care about the rich, big corporations, wall street and making a quick buck? That's what we've been seeing pretty much non stop since the 80s and Ronald Reagan. The social programs put in place by FDR have been slowly dismantled over the past 25 years. Bush has only accelerated it the past 7 years. Oh well, just my thoughts. What do the rest of you think?

    I think that what is now the 'middle age' high peak will soon be equilized by young adults as they have no future and very little to look for to where as for now adults that have already started something realize that they do not have anything even working round the clock to make ends meet.

    Story repeating itself all over. Wait and see what the close future reserves you. After having been through the past, unknown to you, I see its return in late inizialied phase.

    I wont be around to live it twice my only consolation but do fear for the middle age and younger.

    I think suicide rates peak during Republican/Conservative administrations because this is the very times that the Socialist/Democrats are yelling the loudest about how mean the evil republicans are for believing in freedom.
