When wondering where your next meal is coming from, there is little time left over for useless, pseudo-scientific navel-gazing.

If the internet has taught me anything it's that this must mean the people of Chad are the most sane on earth.

Fun fact: The country of Chad was named after Chad Everett, star of CBS' 'Medical Center' in the early seventies.

When Libya had its attempted coup last time I was hoping the rebels would rename the country Jeremy.  Chad always seems so lonely without his buddy.

That's because:

a) A really good way to get SSI is to have a psychiatric disability (and your psychiatrist is paid for by Medicaid).  This is also a secret plan on the part of the government to convince people that welfare is necessary (They're not bums, they're disabled) in order to avoid yet more inner-city riots that are more expensive than welfare.
b) crazy parents think their kid who can't sit still has ADHD, instead of just needing to go outside and run around for an hour (Super bonus: This will also solve childhood obesity)
c) Parents who are crazy think that their kids are crazy because the kid keeps acting gingerly around the parents because the parents go crazy.  (Note: Long-term, that's a recipe to create super passive and/or passive-aggressive people who are socially stunted because they can't read people)

One of the big reasons we have to change immigration/visa laws...we bring people from other countries over to get an education, then they say "I like it here, not going back" and the whole reason for educating folks form undeveloped nations becomes a joke.

If everyone that wants a better life and freedom moves to the West, then who remains in the undeveloped nations to be a patriot? Who remains to render medical care? Who remains to build roads and bridges?

No one.

Therefore, we are getting and will get more Somalias and Afganistans and Rwandas.

Chad recognized its need for psychiatrists after all the suicides by hanging after the 2000 USA election.

You're mixing up Psychiatry and Psychology.

Psychiatry is the one with the drugs, the medical doctors, and the peer-reviewed studies with full trial samples, meaning tens of thousands of test subjects.

Psychology is the one that draws conclusions about the entirety of humanity based on a case study of six nonrandom white male undergraduate students in their early 20s.  Some of the adherents still think Freud's long-debunked 'tell me about your mother' shiat actually does something.

They're, y'know, different things, that merit different degrees of skepticism.  If you don't believe in  psychology you're in the good company of essentially everyone without a degree in psychology.  If you don't believe in  psychiatry you're in the company of people that think the moon is made of green cheese and we faked the moon landing so that no one could learn the gender of the turtle that carries the flat disc of the world on its back.  Also you probably think fairies have enchanted you so you can't feel your teeth.
