As usual the far-right wing global banking 1% CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA players are PRETENDING these bills are SOCIAL BENEFIT when they are THE OPPOSITE. MOVING FORWARD far-right wing, authoritarian, militaristic, extreme wealth extreme poverty LIBERTARIAN MARXISM ---as dictatorship and global military junta------will be using these policies to create the same global banking corporate HITLER, STALIN, MAO FASCISM as existed last century and will take our US and European citizens back to conditions far more oppressive.
So, today these laws just being passed are building a global corporate infrastructure that will in a decade or two be used to find all kinds of ways to identify reasons to use MENTAL HEALTH to attain goals they want to achieve.

Sponsor: Rep. Kildee, Daniel T. [D-MI-5] (Introduced 06/22/2017) Committees: House - Judiciary; Appropriations Latest Action: House - 07/14/2017 Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations. (All Actions)
Summary: H.R.3013 — 115th Congress (2017-2018)
Introduced in House (06/22/2017)
Help Communities Fight Violent Crime Act
This bill authorizes appropriations to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for Violent Crime Reduction Partnerships in the most violent U.S. cities.
It permits the ATF to transfer appropriated funds to another agency or instrumentality of the U.S. government for the purpose of conducting activities under such a partnership.
We discuss often the concerns over goals of these AFFORDABLE CARE ACT MENTAL HEALTH policies and now those attached to CONGRESSIONAL NEW CRIME BILL. These policies are FAR-RIGHT WING GLOBAL BANKING 1%----they are NOT ---REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE COMMUNITY BENEFIT policies. We saw all last year the PROPAGANDA surrounding these policies in all our US CITIES DEEMED FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES----but now we see this same PROPAGANDA taking the suburbs and our US rural counties and towns. All of this is the same installation of MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GLOBAL MILITARY JUNTA----and yes, people are no longer CITIZENS with RIGHTS-----they are open to being institutionalized at any time for any reason-----no matter if those reasons are TRUE.
Our rural counties and suburbs tend towards being RIGHT WING and LAW AND ORDER so our US 99% who are US right wing conservative REPUBLICANS are the easiest to fool in these FAKE SOCIAL BENEFIT policing and mental health policies. No one hates having their FREEDOMS taken away more than those 99% WE THE RIGHT WING CONSERVATIVES----no less so then our US LEFT WING SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS.
Please know our discussions on public policy will be coming to YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS-----so let's come together as a 99% VS global banking 1% and those dastardly 5% freemason/Greek players.
Why suburbs could use more police social workers

John Starks | Staff PhotographerSuburban police officers dealing with an increase in mental health and substance abuse calls are not equipped to handle such crises, experts say. That's why social workers at police departments are essential to helping bridge the gap between law enforcement and the myriad human problems they encounter. Yet, few suburban police departments have them, and the shortage is especially pronounced in the Fox Valley area.
From more than 85 towns examined, only 33 suburban police departments have a social worker on staff, according to the Association of Police Social Workers. The number of such workers ranges from one to five.

"Every police department should be equipped with a police social worker," said Kristin Eby, association president, police social worker and victims coordinator for Arlington Heights. "When I look at the association, the number of social workers that we have involved are very much saturated in the North and Northwest suburbs.
"There is definitely a need in Kane and McHenry counties," she added. "You need to work as a team with other social workers or even your local law enforcement agency ... (be a) bridge between local law enforcement and the court system making sure that our victims don't get lost. A lot of times people don't know we exist."
Sue Blechschmidt, a Lake in the Hills police social worker for 23 years, is the only one in McHenry County. She sees her job as essential to good police work.
"It really assists the officers in being able to do their jobs because there's so much of what they have to deal with on the streets," she said. "Their short interface with the calls and with the people isn't always enough. They have other pressing matters to get to."
Officers give victims the basic information and resources, but can't follow up in their time of crisis, she added.
Whether it's counseling victims in the aftermath of a house fire or dealing with suicide, unexpected deaths, homelessness, alcohol and gambling addiction, having social workers on hand allows police departments to show victim sensibility, said Lark Syrris, Elgin's domestic violence case manager.
Handling victims well is key to preventing "the kinds of tragedies we are seeing in other police departments across the nation where they are mistreating people," she said. "Because we have practiced community-oriented policing and done prevention programs and nurtured relationships in the community, that is impactful. It has helped police officers understand the community and be more humane."
Smaller police departments that can't afford to hire their own social workers often contract out for crisis counseling services.
The nonprofit Association for Individual Development in Elgin provides victim services to police and fire departments in Aurora, North Aurora, Batavia, Geneva, Huntley, St. Charles and Lombard. The agency staffs a 24/7 crisis hotline for the Fox Valley area year-round and has a 30-minute response window, except in Lombard and Huntley.
"We use experts in the field, different agencies that deal with specific problems," said Joanne Furnas, AID's vice president of behavioral health services, who runs the crisis intervention team. "We do trainings about mental illness, stress management, suicide prevention intervention, and then we also offer debriefings for police and fire departments. There are very few calls that don't involve mental illness."
In Lake County, where there aren't any police social workers, law enforcement and social service agencies work together when responding to any domestic situation involving violence.
"Mental health is a big thing that the sheriff's office is really leading the charge on as far as our deputies being trained on crisis intervention," said Lake County Sheriff's Det. Christopher Covelli. "Our primary function when we respond to one of these incidences is stabilizing the environment and ensuring everybody's safety."
Authorities partner with social service agencies such as A Safe Place in Mundelein, OMNI Youth Services in Buffalo Grove and Nicasa behavioral health services, which provide necessary intervention and counseling for victims.
Last year, several sheriff's deputies, detectives, court security officers and jail personnel also received specialized crisis intervention training. Eventually, all members of the sheriff's office who interact with the public will go through the training, Covelli said.
With the increasing diversity of the suburbs, there also is a growing need for bilingual and multilingual social workers and those able to work with different cultures.
"It's incredibly important," said Natalia Mercado, a social worker Rolling Meadows hired to help with the town's growing Latino population. "Lots of police departments don't have bilingual social workers. There is a humongous need for people that speak more of the Asian languages. That's where the assistance of other agencies/nonprofits comes in. There's no way I can do this completely alone."
Mercado said she fields roughly 150 calls per week matching people with resources in the community.
"I can't do the therapy," she said. "Social services is a more intense thing. You have to spend more time with people. It's not just having an interpreter. It's building a relationship and connecting."
Now, this article points to this MOVING FORWARD policy here in US as it was installed in USSR these few decades bringing STALINISM into power. HITLER/MUSSOLINI/FRANCO---all those far-right wing DICTATORS----use these mental health issues for power against political enemies-----business enemies----or just to FLEX MUSCLES. All last century those nations as in Eastern Europe, Arabia, Africa having those far-right DICTATORS installed were using these tactics HEAVILY.
We will look at these public policy issues in detail next week---but simply want to post information helpful in seguing to this subject.
"Politically defined madness"
How the Soviets used their own twisted version of psychiatry to suppress political dissent
Over the course of its 69-year history, the Soviet Union was notorious for its heavy-handed suppression of political dissent — most infamously through its use of the Siberian GULAGs. But it was during the 1960s and 1970s that the Communist Party took their intolerance for ideological deviance to extremes by diagnosing and institutionalizing so-called counterrevolutionaries with mental illness. It was a frightening episode in Soviet history in which perfectly healthy citizens could be deemed psychotic simply on account of their political views.
And indeed, what better way to deal with activists and naysayers than to diagnose them as being mentally unstable. Dissenters, who were often seen as both a burden and a threat to the system, could be easily discredited and detained.
Moreover, it served as a powerful and disturbing way to convince the masses that they needed to adhere to the party line — and that any deviant thinking was surely a sign of mental instability. As Nikita Khrushchev noted in 1959, it should be impossible for people in a communist society to have an anti-communist consciousness, and "Of those who might start calling for opposition to Communism on this basis, we can say that clearly their mental state is not normal."
Consequently, it was around this time that Soviet definitions of mental disease were expanded to include political disobedience. But in the end, all it ever amounted to was a form of political abuse and repression. Anti-Soviet activists were not mentally ill — but instead the victims of politically inspired pseudoscience and the misuse of psychiatric diagnosis.
"Politically defined madness"
The advent of Soviet psychoprisons coincided with the rise in power and influence of the KGB, the infamous secret service wing of the Communist Party. They started to take an interest in medicine as a potential instrument of control as early as 1948 under the Stalin regime. The use of GULAGs was starting to fall out of favor, so it was around this time that the high-ranking KGB officer Andrey Vyshinsky ordered the use of psychiatry as a way to both quash dissent and still send a message to any would-be activists.
Indeed, psychiatry had great potential as a control mechanism — more so than other areas of medicine. The Communist Party was eager to take advantage. They knew that a diagnosis of mental illness could confer them broad powers by allowing them to detain persons against their will conduct therapy — all while proclaiming it to be within the interest of the "patient" and the broader interests of society.
Called psikhushkas, Soviet psychiatric wards were a place where dissenters could be both confined and treated for their perceived conditions. Psikhushkas soon became an integral part of the larger psychiatric system, in which genuine psychiatric science worked in parallel with the politically imposed version. To a degree, it became part of a two-tiered system in which psychiatry was used as a form of political repression (primarily operating out of the Moscow Institute for Forensic Psychiatry) and a more genuine psychiatry (as practiced in the Leningrad Psychoneurological Institute). Once in full swing, the new system became integrated in hundreds of hospitals across the Soviet Union.
The campaign adopted a greater sense of mission during the late 1960s when open dissention started to become more commonplace, most notably through the agitation of such thinkers and activists as Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Andrei Sakharov. KBG chairman Yuri Andropov, who went on to become Premier, called for a renewed struggle against "dissidents and their imperialist masters." To that end he outlined and implemented a plan that went into effect in 1969. Looking to wipe out political dissent in the Soviet Union once and for all, Andropov made sure that psychiatry would continue to be used as a tool in the struggle.
Specifically, he issued a decree on "measures for preventing dangerous behavior (acts) on the part of mentally ill persons." Consequently, psychiatrists were both empowered and expected to diagnose and confine anyone who fit the description of a political agitator. Doctors were even told to "haul" or "entrap" suspected dissenters, thus making them not only de facto arresting officers, but interrogators as well. Psychiatrists were compelled to come-up with diagnoses, allowing the police and the state to forego inconveniences such as due process and court judgments (such that they were at the time).
That said, Soviet doctors did use formal procedures to diagnoses their patients. The state, with the help of some overzealous psychiatrists, was considerate enough to provide a list of symptoms that could be used to make a diagnosis.
The most common of these was a condition called "sluggish schizophrenia," a psychological disorder that was developed by Andrei Snezhnevsky at the Moscow School of Psychiatry. Snezhnevsky agreed with the Communist Party's sentiment that citizens who opposed the Soviet regime must be mentally unwell since there could be no other logical rationale why anyone would oppose the world's greatest sociopolitical system.
Consequently, he came up with a form of schizophrenia that not only characterized political deviance as a failure to properly grasp reality, but one that could very easily be applied to anyone exhibiting contrarian tendencies. Specifically, they described it as "a continuous type [of schizophrenia] that is defined as unremitting, proceeding with either a rapid ("malignant") or a slow ("sluggish") progression and has a poor prognosis in both instances."
In other words, it was a pervasive, subtle, and pernicious kind of schizophrenia that couldn't be cured. Moreover, psychotic symptoms were not required for the diagnosis. Psychiatrists were told to look for other underlying conditions, such as psychopathy, hypochondria, and anxiety. But they were also on the lookout for such socially reprehensible traits like pessimism, poor social adaptation, conflict with authorities, "reform delusions," perseverance, and "struggles for truth and justice" — traits that could, on their own, be sufficient for a diagnosis.
According to Snezhnevsky, patients with sluggish schizophrenia could go unnoticed by the untrained eye and pass for regular folk — that they were "quasi-sane." It was only through a proper diagnosis by a trained professional that they could be identified.
In reality, it was a tool to isolate and imprison hundreds or thousands of political prisoners from the rest of society, discredit their ideas, and break them physically and mentally. It was nothing less than torture.
The human toll inflicted by Soviet psychoprisons is one that's largely lost in history, but significant nonetheless. Some survivors, such as Viktor Nekipelov, have gone on to suggest that the those involved were "no better than the criminal doctors who performed inhuman experiments on the prisoners in Nazi concentration camps."
Other prominent dissidents included renowned Soviet physicist Andrei Sakharov, poet Joseph Brodsky, Pyotr Grigorenko, Valery Tarsis, and Natalya Gorbanevskaya.
As for the exact scale of the practice, it is difficult to discern the numbers — but as work by historians continues a picture is starting to emerge.
According to the archives of the International Association on the Political Use of Psychiatry, no less than 20,000 citizens were hospitalized for political reasons — a number that most historians agree is likely low on account of unreleased documentation (there are a lot of people alive today who could be badly implicated by this information).
What is known is that, with the rise of Mikhail Gorbachev in the 1980s, the practice was (mostly) discontinued, leading to the release of many political prisoners. The year 1986 saw the release of 19 prisoners, followed by 64 in 1987. In 1988, it was announced that, of the 5.5 million Soviets listed on the psychiatric register, over 30% would be taken off the list. A year later the number was revised and shown to be closer to 10.2 million people registered at "psychoneurological dispensaries" — along with a whopping 335,200 hospital beds set aside.
And sadly, the practice has not gone completely out of favor in today's Russia, with some concerned that punitive psychiatry is making a comeback.
Disturbing episode for all of psychiatry
While it might be easy to dismiss this chapter of Soviet history as an interesting consequence of totalitarian and authoritarian politics, it also serves as a disturbing reminder of the normative nature of psychiatry and the assessment of psychiatric disorders. Mental health is a culturally sanctioned thing. Our definitions of mental health change over time depending on the values and morals of the society in question.
Today, our concerns are with those people who pose a threat to themselves and impose a burden on society, and in turn we've come to pathologize such things as gambling, depression, anxiety, and overeating. Looking to the future, it's not ridiculous to think we might do the same for shyness, extreme religious beliefs, or racial bigotry. But given the diversity of human culture and individual experience, could we ever in all fairness agree upon and impose a singular vision of what's mentally normal?
Below we see several ideas of what MADNESS means to our 99% WE THE PEOPLE ----from several different people---we will remind our 99% WE THE WOMEN that sending a wife to a mental institution so a man could remarry was quite common and pyschiatric doctors were often obliged.
We all know MARCH MADNESS in basketball is indeed INSANE----well, maybe to some. These definitions are called POLITICAL MADNESS because when we allow our local, state councils and assemblies do whatever a national CONGRESS tells it---as is MOVING FORWARD today-----then these DEFINITIONS OF MADNESS becomer LOOSEY GOOSEY.
We relate to the SCIENTIST at one time being thought MAD------today they are thought to be GENIUSES--
How is madness defined?
Before defining madness let's learn some quick facts:
- Copernicus explained the sane guys that earth orbits the sun. Was declared insane.
- Kepler explained the sane guys that Solar system is heliocentric. Was declared insane.
- Avogadro explained the sane guys his gas laws. Rejected. Was declared insane
- Oscar Wilde showed the sane guys his work. Died bankrupt. Was declared insane
- Mendel gave his revolutionary laws of inheritance to the sane guys. Was declared insane.
- Look at those mad guys trying to preserve nature rallying in front of your house. Asking for charity. Insane, huh?
- Einstein, Boltzmann, Bill Gates, Zuckenberg at some point in their lives all of them were considered mad.
The degree or extent of any random emotion expressing craziness for your passion is called madness :) Period.
P.S. A person might be mad wrt a person but might be totally normal wrt some other. Find someone who understands you :)
Repeating the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.
A person in their personal behavior is much like a business/country/society. They need to pause at times and look back (so as not to go mad repeating something that isn’t working or won’t work). This is the basis of “conservative rational thinking”.
Can a society go mad?
Part of America being a historically conservative country, is that America looks back to see what succeeded here (and elsewhere) and what didn’t. This prevents repeating behaviors that ended with tragic results or prevented progress (which is like social madness).
And, that’s the core of conservativism…..doing unbiased research of what worked and what didn’t in the past and understanding why. It keeps us from going mad (inadvertently, at times, because research could have prevented it but that was not done).
Of course, we must teach our youth unbiased history too, so they don’t succumb to a utopian story when there is good historic research on that topic, avaialable.
I am actually a political centrist (I believe in letting people “discover and become themselves”) but there is little doubt that looking back can prevent a future disaster.
Looking back can also give excellent clues as to how to proceed in the future (that’s part of research and as an engineer, I believe in truly objective research…but not biased research).
Unproven utopian theories almost never work because they are inherently, too limited in scope and discard essential realities, thus they remain utopian.
Nothing defines madness, it is just a state of mind!
You might define madness differently, than what i think about it. Everyone has a specific limit for everything, and that limit decides what madness is!
Walking naked on the street might be just normal for someone, but for you it might be madness. This difference in our understanding is what defines it for everyone personally.
Everybody has a different “mind” nurtured differently, someone might be highly functional, not being able to understand the rules of this society and do something beyond its limit, most of the people might call him mad, or his act madness. It does not make him mad. While someone just completely dumb and people will call him mad.
Eventually there will be a time when a person will do something new, everyone will start calling him mad, but slowly they will follow and what they called madness will be perfectly normal.
People called scientist mad but now they call them geniuses.
You ask me how would one define it?
HAHAHA!! I would say I’m the answer for your question buddy…
I’Am the answer…
Actually I would rather prefer to be crazy, not madness.
Cause If I would have not been crazy i would have been insane.
madness is when you have no plans but just do things.
be like a dog chasing a car who has no idea what to do with it if it caught it.
just do whatever you feel like doing just dont give a second thought to it,
and if you have to give a second thought to it never do it. Trust me you not gonna wanna do it and thats why you got yourself into dilemma .
When you’ll start doing this you you’ll fall in love with life and other will get jelly.
Cause they cant do what you are doing they can only think or dream of doing it.
and you’ll be living what they dream of.
and they call you crazy or mad.
I don’t. I consider it an archaic word. I think Herman Melville mentions madness when writing about Captain Ahab’s monomania for Moby Dick. I’ll leave it there, in literature, for its dramatic effect.
madness can be better defined as utter confusion and restlessness.
We NEVER use our personal experiences in our public policy discussions because we are speaking for all our US 99% identifying as REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVES----but we want to use a few personal examples that allow our 99% to recognize a CANARY IN THE MINE----as people SPEAKING TRUTH are targeted by these far-right wing global banking 1% military/policing structures.
Our FB and WEBSITE followers come from all walks of life----some are wealthy----some middle class---some poor. Some are 5% freemason/Greek players, some are not tied to these organizations----so we try to open discussion for all these population groups.
As a political group shouting against FREEMASONRY/GREEK as partners to global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS doing whatever EMPIRE ALICE says----killing our US and global 99% of citizens black, white, and brown citizens. So, we hear bits and pieces from all kinds of places what THE NETWORK -----the freemasonry/Greek talking groups are saying.
A FEW WEEKS AGO WE HEAR THAT A WRITING ATTACK AGAINST A CINDY WALSH OF CITIZENS' OVERSIGHT MARYLAND WOULD OCCUR----AND VIOLA-----WE ARE HEARING MUCH OF WHAT THE NEGATIVE ATTACKS INCLUDE.

Cindy Walsh is a typical SCIENTIST/SCHOLAR-------I spend time alone-----always reading and writing-----never wanted to take time to have husband because my personality is one having me always wanting to spend time LEARNING NEW THINGS.
So, below we see just such a person----although he was quite the genius------his life devoted in these same ways. The term MAD SCIENTIST stems from people so passionate for learning and discovery they forget all that everyday life around them.
Personally, Cindy Walsh is that HERSHEL scholar. Let's think how other people feeling they like being ALONE may be political defined as MAD.
AMERICAN MINUTEScience of the stars: 'An undevout astronomer is mad'Bill Federer recounts life, faith of man who discovered UranusPublished: 08/24/2018 at 8:19 PM
Bill Federer Sir William Herschel
William Herschel discovered the first planet since ancient antiquity in 1781. He desired to name the planet after King George III, though others wanted to give it his name, as Thomas Jefferson wrote from Paris to John Page, Aug. 20, 1785: “You will find in these the tables for the planet Herschel, as far as the observations hitherto made. … You will see … that Herschel was … the first astronomer who discovered it to be a planet.”
Born in Germany, Nov. 15, 1738, William Herschel was a musician like his father, who was bandmaster in the Hanoverian guard. A contemporary of Mozart, William Herschel fled to England during the Seven Years War. He was hired as the first organist at St. John the Baptist Church in Halifax, and then organist at the prestigious Octagon Chapel in Bath, eventually writing 24 symphonies.
William Herschel pursued astronomy on the side, building his own telescope to observe, not just the solar system, but “the construction of the heavens.” He taught himself how to grind and polish telescopic mirrors, becoming preeminent in that field.
William Herschel constructed over 400 telescopes, including the largest reflecting telescopes of his day, using them to catalog over 90,000 new stars, as well as nebulae and galaxies.
After discovering Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun, King George III granted William Herschel a permanent salary as a royal astronomer. William Herschel identified double-stars, coined the word “asteroid,” meaning star-like, and discovered infrared radiation.
“The Scientific Papers of Sir William Herschel” (published by the Royal Society in 1912), recorded his diary entry of an argument over naturalistic philosophy: “The First Consul … asked in a tone of exclamation … when we were speaking of the extent of the sidereal heavens ‘and who is the author of all this.’ … LaPlace wished to shew that a chain of natural causes would account for the construction. … This the First Consul rather opposed. Much may be said on the subject; by joining the arguments of both we shall be led to ‘Nature and Nature’s God.'”
The Royal Society editor wrote in a footnote of Herschel’s missing letters: “Some 400 pages … are still extant. … We are informed that Herschel in them interweaves his philosophy and even his musical studies with references of an earnest kind to the Creator as a beneficent Deity, expressing his gratitude and addressing him in a prayerful spirit.”
William Herschel was made a Knight of the Royal Guelphic Order by Prince Regent, George IV, in 1816.
Sir William Herschel died in his observatory, Aug. 25, 1822. He was buried in St. Laurence Anglican Church in Slough, England, where a stained-glass “Herschel Window” commemorates his astronomical discoveries and another window quotes Psalm 8: “When I consider the heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained, what is man, that Thou art mindful of him?”

A contemporary of Sir William Herschel was the famous English poet, Edward Young (1681-1765), whose poem “Night Thoughts” was published in 1742. The poem became so popular it was translated into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish and Magyar, and quoted throughout Europe and America.
Line 771 of Edward Young’s poem “Night Thoughts,” possibly referred to by Sir William Herschel, was:
By mortal ear, the glorious Architect,
In this His universal temple hung
With lustres, with innumerable lights,
That shed religion on the soul; at once,
The temple, and the preacher! O how loud
It calls devotion! genuine growth of Night!
Devotion! daughter of Astronomy!
An undevout astronomer is mad.
William Herschel’s sister, Caroline, assisted him and also discovered six comets herself, for which she was honored by royalty. William Herschel’s son, Sir John Frederick Herschel, took his father’s telescope to South Africa where he cataloged hundreds of new stars and nebulae seen from the southern hemisphere. When the HMS Beagle landed at Cape Town, South Africa, on June 3, 1836, the young Charles Darwin visited Sir John Frederick Herschel.
Sir John Frederick Herschel was quoted by Marcel de Serres in “On the Physical Facts in the Bible Compared with the Discoveries of the Modern Sciences” (The Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal, 1845, Vol. 38, 260): “All human discoveries seem to be made only for the purpose of confirming more strongly the truths come from on high, and contained in the Sacred Writings.”
We hear lots of writing attacks these few weeks aimed at making CINDY WALSH sound MAD--- these public policy discussions are not TRUE-----she is CRAZY.
One ongoing issue is my liking to wear a THICK SWEATER/LAYERS rather than wearing a COAT. We want to say this----different regions of the US have different climates----different outdoor activities------many people in NORTHWEST/NORTHEAST/WESTERN MOUNTAINS are like me----they wear layers ---they wear THICK WOOLEN SWEATERS-----and not a coat.
Now, when not wearing those sweaters ---we do wear a coat----the point is this----WE KEEP OURSELVES WARM.
The other issue over COAT VS SWEATER is public transportation vs car. It is easy to take off a coat and leave in car------it is a pain in the neck to carry a coat while on public transit.
My mother was very dutiful--------she never allowed me to leave home without coat/gloves/hat----but as an adult I preferred different.
Why do I not wear a HAT? Simply because it messes my HAIR---FLAT HAIR----simple vanity.
Do I get sick from all this? NO. I have long periods with NO COLDS----I have ONE COLD a season often caught from a fellow commuter.
GearIt’s Time to Bring Wool Sweaters BackBy Abbie Barronian | October 3, 2017
The most-mocked member of the outdoor community isn’t, as you might believe, the kook or the jerry. It isn’t the stoned liftie or the suburnt tourist. It’s the classic wool sweater, maybe with a deer or a few skiers knitted into it. You only see them when they rear their cozy, nubby heads at gaper day, at parties dedicated to laughing at how ugly they are, or stacked up in thrift stores with rear-entry ski boots and decomposing wetsuits.
They used to be the layer of choice for everyone from Yosemite climbers of lore to Aspen skiers of the 1980s, but somewhere along the line they fell out of vogue, replaced by synthetic, machine-washable quarter zips misleadingly known as “fleeces,” despite the fact that they usually come from a derivative of plastic rather than, you know, an actual sheep.
I religiously wear wool socks skiing and hiking. Unless I’m running (which usually means I won’t be out in the wilderness for more than a few hours), I wouldn’t dare let anything else touch my feet. Wool keeps me warm even when it’s wet, it lasts forever, it (usually) doesn’t smell, and–bonus!–it’s possible to harvest sustainably. (Ever trace polyester to the source? It’s most commonly made out polyethylene terephthalate, a plastic derived from crude oil. Gross.)
ADVERTISEMENTSo when and why did we leave wool sweaters to grandparents’ closets and costume parties? It’s time to re-introduce the most classic layering piece to your outdoor wardrobe, because it never should have left.
ADVERTISEMENTLast winter, I was at an outerwear test in Utah and our massive group took a mellow, in-bounds evening tour to eat fondue atop Brighton mountain at sunset (and, of course, to test out gear on the uphill). Everyone was kitted out in the newest, techiest ski clothing out there. Except my friend Caitlin, a ripping skier from the Adirondacks with a penchant for anything low-maintenance, and brightly colored. She had a giant hand-knitted, wildly patterned wool sweater in her pack. When the sun went down, everyone shivered in their featherlight down and Gore-Tex, and Caitlin grinned in her chunky, super-cozy sweater. It wasn’t lightweight or slick, but it was warm, comfortable, fit in her pack, and looked awesome.
Cotopaxi crowd-funded a modern take on the do-anything wool sweater, the Libre Sweater, made of llama wool, for those of you who aren’t quite ready to jump on the throwback, hand-made train. It’s lightweight and packable–I’ve carried it into the backcountry on multiple occasions–with a super-classic design. Tiny holes in the back knit to keep your back cool and well-ventilated with a pack on (or when you’re just in that weird cold-but-still-sweating place). It’s awesome for skiing, hiking, hanging around camp, cold climbing days, and bike rides around town, it doesn’t pick up smell, and when I sweat in it, it still keeps me warm. No, it’s not some super-technical mid-layer with vents and special panels of down and taped zippers. But you know what? That’s why I like it.
In fact, you don’t even need to buy a wool sweater from a dedicated outdoors brand to benefit from what the Libre’s got going on. The best part about a wool sweater, just like a flannel shirt, is that it’s just a normal piece of clothing. I like technical clothing that makes me look like a way better athlete than I am just as much as the next gal, but it’s easy to get just a little sick of slick. Sometimes I just want to wear clothes, not gear. And the wool sweater, weather you’re layering up at the campfire, setting out on a brisk alpine start, or spinning in-bounds laps, will do you proud. Reindeer and pom-pom hat wearing skiers not necessary–but they certainly spice things up a bit.
One of the most COMMON mis-uses of POLITICALLY DEFINED MADNESS is aimed at people who seem to be alone----seem to have no family or friends. We hear this constantly on THE NETWORK in describing Cindy Walsh. I have lots of relationships with people from early years ----from times in living in cities across the country-----so being a LONE WOLF-----is not who I am. This STIGMA is very, very often used when mental health policy goes FAR-RIGHT HITLER/STALINIST FASCIST.
We discussed in detail how these new mental health policies of POLICE AS SOCIAL WORKER do indeed target those vulnerable and alone. We shout loudly against MOVING FORWARD goals tied to targeting people alone.
Again, CINDY WALSH is not fearful from these few weeks of writing attacks on THE NETWORK----we know these policies will not come in force for a decade or two. THEY WILL KILL HER we hear-----KNOW WHAT? The chances of MY getting killed in Baltimore -----HIGHLY UNLIKELY but not a surety---because we have shootings almost every day tied to our Baltimore 99% poor trying to survive CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA US CITIES AS FAILED STATE ECONOMICS.
Please don't allow all this propaganda aimed squarely at creating FEAR stop us from STANDING UP AND BEING US CITIZENS----we need to simply STOP MOVING FORWARD.
Please be careful how all these global banking 1% FADS are now making people think they are LONERS WITH NO SUPPORT.
