    Perhaps you should do your homework before making such ridiculous statements.
    It most certainly was not. The LFPR started DECLINING in 2001, under President George W. Bush. You can look it up. Clearly, this is just another case of Kallie Knoteze having NO IDEA of what he is talking about.

    The oldest Baby Boomers started hitting early retirement age (55) in 2000. That's why the LFPR started declining in about 2001 or so. Duh.

    Mr. Leroy,

    Sorry to ruin your premise:

    But damn, dude, you should have done your homework before making such a foolish statement.

    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?

    Fucking I-phones....

    Ms. Labrea,

    Statistically: according to or by means of statistics

    A minor decline (which stated in 2000, not 2001, by the by) than stabilized to statistically similar levels as previous is different than the nose dive that occurred from 2009 onward.

    That, I do not doubt. What I doubt is that clinical anxiety and depression result from losing an election.
