    boontito,

    I'll be down in the dumps this weekend. My wife is making me clean out the garage and the shed.

    We who hang out at a political forum need to remember sometimes that not everything is due to politics.

    It has nothing to do with politics. Our political nature is a side-effect, however.

    We are a depressing lot. It's why comedy is so popular and always will be.

    That describes the modern liberal.

    Not sure why you're thanking trump. He doesn't have the power to make you an optimist or a pessimist.

    Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows.

    Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent.

    The findings cover people with commercial health insurance — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — so they’re not fully representative. But most people in the U.S. are covered by a commercial health plan.

    Any idea why depression is on the rise?
    Yeah, republicans have been telling the average guy he's a loser.

    Great, so they have a job, much of it paying them barely enough to get by as the costs of everything goes up
    I can see people who make poor financial decisions feeling the consequences of such. That doesn't describe everyone. Many do save, vacation, purchase things they desire, etc... If our schools were more focused on financial intellect rather than PC victimhood indoctrination, we might be able to cure this depression over time.

    I'd contend the exact opposite. The democrat message is that people are too weak/incompetent to negotiate life without big-brother nanny state programs to help them out.

    I think the only folks that are depressed are the ones watching/reading fake news MSM outlets like NBC.
    And the labor force participation rate is still significantly below what it was under Clinton.

    Amazing how the middle class is making bad decisions en masse.
