try Lily Allen, she has some great socially conscious songs such as The Fear, which is about Materialism and Everyone’s At It, about drug culture. And her new one 22 is about society’s attitude towards aging women.

Jose Gonzalez is amazing, I’m not sure if you’d count him as pop but his songs are often socially concious. Killing for love is about people for fighting in the name of religion.

Seniors/ Vets do you think PTSD is a new concept or a fad?

Question by red10ninja: Seniors/ Vets do you think PTSD is a new concept or a fad?
My husband and I were at a restaraunt recently and an elderly man( I would say in his mid to late 80’s) was discussing with his wife and what appeared to be his daughter, the subject of PTSD. He was saying that he thought it was a crock, and that it was just an excuse for soldiers returning from war not to get a job and live off the government. He said something to the effect of “we didn’t have any problems with stress and depression back in my day after the war.” Do you think many seniors feel that way? Was it perhaps a matter of ” real men don’t cry” or share their feelings? Do you think it is more common now or about the same?
My grandfather was in a sub off the coast of Pearl Harbor when it was bombed and lost many friends and it affected him greatly though he didn’t talk about it much or go to counseling.

My dad was a POW for almost 4 yrs. during WWII. He suffered greatly. He started drinking heavily after the war and he carried so many bad memories with him that it affected the rest of his life. PTSD is real and it’s about time they did something to alleviate the burden of carrying that around.

Q&A: What does ” Keep your government hands off my medicare” Mean?

Question by Tbone: What does ” Keep your government hands off my medicare” Mean?
What does that mean? That’s a Public System. Administrated by the Government. Obviously those folks must like it because they don’t want the vary hand that provides it to touch it. So What are they saying? What does that mean? That they want to keep getting it but they don’t want anyone else to get it?

It means GOP rhetoric appeals to people who don’t understand the issues.
