The dark side of the American Dream is killing white men


A study shows that more Americans are dying from drug and alcohol abuse and suicides than at any point in roughly the past 20 years. Veuer's Justin Kircher has more. Buzz60

White men in America have a lot of advantages and yet we are dying by suicide in record numbers. The expectation for success is crushing

Last month, a reliable family guy with a big laugh became a news story when he didn’t show up for work. A week later, he was found dead of what authorities are confident was a suicide

It’s not uncommon. Like people I’ve known who have taken their lives, he was a hardworking middle-aged white guy with a solid track record — exactly the kind of American most likely to die by suicide. 

Each case is heartbreaking and haunting.

The number of cases in a nearly eight-month-old epidemic of Ebola in eastern DR Congo now exceeds 1,000, almost two-thirds of whom have died, the health ministry said late Sunday.

"The accumulated number of cases is 1,009," of which 629 cases were fatal, it said.

The outbreak was first recorded in North Kivu province on August 1, and then spread to neighbouring Ituri province.

Its toll is the second deadliest in the history of Ebola, after an epidemic in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2014-6 that claimed 11,308 lives, according to the website of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Ebola virus disease was first discovered in 1974 in a village near the Democratic Republic of Congo's Ebola River, which gave the disease its name.

Efforts to contain the latest outbreak, the 10th in the DRC's history, have been hampered by poor security in the highly unstable east, which teems with militia groups.

What Is QAnon? The Conspiracy Theory Tiptoeing Into Trump World

As the cameras rolled on President Trump's campaign rally for GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis in Florida on Tuesday night, a peculiar sign appeared in view.
"We are Q."
Journalists at the event noted multiple attendees carrying signs and wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the name "QAnon."
The shirts and signs are references to a conspiracy theory growing increasingly popular among those on the far-right — and a conspiracy theory about which the White House fielded a question from the media on Wednesday.

Walmart recently posted a video ad on its Facebook page of two homosexuals on a blind date. Unfortunately, the retail giant has decided to cave and be politically correct instead of remaining neutral on controversial issues. Founder, Sam Walton, would have never approved of this decision to promote the homosexual agenda.

About Pornography: A Public Health Crisis

The pornography of today has created an unprecedented epidemic of sexual harm. Children and young people are being exposed to violent and degrading content, which by default has served as their sex education. Once a social or health issue involves problems that affect individuals or groups beyond their capacity to correct – responsibility shifts from individual accountability to holding the forces and influences that cause it accountable. While educating individual parents to guide and protect their children is always part of any prevention plan, the problem is well beyond what individual parents and children can do to protect themselves.
