    Isn't that really the point, with or without PTSD?

    There is an entire subculture/industry that preys on vets and their families with financial scams, hoaxes, and paranoia.

    But specifically, there are groups like the "3 percenters" who are all about arming themselves and preparing for the apocalyptic confrontation with the dirty hippies who spit on them ("spitting" is always huge).

    This dildo's very first comment the other day is typical

    I will support and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC;
    with it's emphasis on "domestic," just to make it clear that because he was file clerk in Quantico he has a sacred mission to kill his neighbors if they disagree with Rush.

    That's what's new - that there is a paranoid subculture that takes vulnerable vets and encourages them to fantasize about killing sprees in online circle jerks at sites like TheBlaze.

    Oh and speaking of TheBlaze, reading any random page is likely to conjure up survivalist race war fantasies

    The American economy WILL come crashing down. It is not ‘if’ but ‘when’. When it does crash, that will be when the re-set happens. The strong will survive. The folks in the cities produce nothing and will not be able to survive there. The showdown will then begin. All the folks that think they are ‘entitled’ are in for a huge surprise when they show up at Mr. Farmer’s house looking for something to eat. It’s gonna be ugly folks

    Exactly and well put.
    The sooner we get this party started the better.

    There’s always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby
