Even back in the days when I was part of folkbum's posse, I have warned of the costs of untreated mental illnesses. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, just the economic cost of untreated mental illness in this country is more than $100 billion each year, and this does not include the human costs.
Now we're seeing this in Wisconsin.
It was recently released that due to Walker's and the Fitz Boyz' narcissism, paranoia and megalomania, it will cost tax payers nearly $8 million. And this doesn't include any fines or court costs that they are charging to us and our future generations as they continuously disregard the law and even the Constitution.
A little bit of Haldol and/or Geodon would have been much, much cheaper.
To add insult to injury, these dangers to society keep insulting our intelligence, apparently thinking we are as crazed as they are.
The gales of November can't come soon enough for me.
