    Does it not chap your ass when we have all the armchair psychiatrists and psychologists making clinical diagnoses of "Paranoia" and "PTSD causes crime?"  Most of the folks making those pronouncements have no idea what they are talking about and could not do a "rule out" algorithm if they had the Sword of Damocles hanging over their collective heads and a large print copy of the DSM-IV-TR in their hands.  It is the "appeal to authority" logical fallacy combined with a true ignorance of voter demographics and how they lean back in the hinterlands.
