I'm not angry at all. I love life, and everything about it. The fact that I was trained to kill people and break their stuff by the US Govt has no bearing on that whatsoever either.

Haha, it was supposed to be a joke. For some reason society these days automatically labels all Veterans as PTSD stricken psychos who will kill you.

My Wife'* a psych-therapist. PTSD is a real thing, but it is not limited to combat. A lot of PTSD happens during childhood. Failure to know about it can cause huge burdens for the people that have it and don't address it. Recentley, a 17 year old hung himself at the psych hospital, as a result of PTSD.

I was working out in Las Vegas for the past ten days. Had some down time, but had to stay in my hotel room, so I was mainly limited to the local channels. Most of the local channels show Jerry Springer and like shows, and a lot of them. I had never seen Jerry Springer before.

It was amazing what was happening on these shows, seemed most of the guests were in their 20s. It was depressing to watch, so many guests with anger, fighting each other, drama, etc. We have three children (25, 22, 18 ) and have had our share of problems, but nothing even close to anything I saw on those shows.

I feel concerned for the 20 years old in the USA. When I was 20, I could get a decent paying job with benefits, easily. I don't see that same opportunity today for our young adults. I hope it changes for them, but I can understand the anger. I think the older generations pillaged a lot for short term gains, and we have not left things nearly as good as we were given.

Oh I know it'* a real thing. I know quite a few people who have been diagnosed with it. Not all of them ever saw combat. I was just stating that a lot of people in society these days think all military vets have PTSD and that we're crazy. I got told I almost didn't get a job because of being a vet, but he Dept of Labor told the company that they needed to hire me.

Amazon MP3 or iTunes?

Personally I get everything from Amazon unless it'* exclusive to iTunes. Just bought the one Deadmau5 album I didn't have.
