I’ve been busy putting the final touches on, NINE NORTH, my latest novel, due to come out next week, but all I can think about is Elon Musk’s latest tweet advocating that all his followers should vote Republican. Elon Musk said that he wants to put Trump back on Twitter. It is horrifying!

Can you imagine if Musk took the 42 billion dollars that he used to purchase Twitter to help get the homeless off the streets or build new psychiatric hospitals or fight cancer or support women’s rights?

Vote for ethical honest candidates!

Liz Cheney is a person whose political ideas don’t all mesh with mine. But, she is a person who had the courage to stand up to the Republican bullies and Trumpies who are on the verge of ruining our country.

In my mind she is a hero.

So is Obama.

So is Joe Biden.

Don’t let greed and bigotry win. Vote for truthful, honorable people.

Tuesday is the day. If you haven’t yet voted, do it now.

After the election, check out THE REAL STORY, a mystery. Next week, get ready for NINE NORTH.

FOX NEWS, A SIMPLE SOLUTION – MONEY, by Art Smukler MD, author & psychiatrist

Freud is best known for leading the way to understanding the unconscious part of our mind and how it influences our behavior. He is also known for stating the obvious, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”.

So, with that in mind, what do we do about Fox News, a powerful news station that continues to lie about almost all things political, as long as it supports Trump and his misguided base? We should FOLLOW THE MONEY!

These are some of the companies that continue to advertise on Fox News: My Pillow, P&G. Amazon, Kraft, Pfizer, Sandals Resort, Pet Smart, Liberty Mutual, Allstate, Progressive, Verizon, Abbott, GM, Carvana, Noom and Novartis.

What does this have to do with mental health and psychiatry? A lot! For four years we’ve been inundated with massive political lies that have created anxiety, depression, insomnia and you name it, a lot of pain. When a news station advocates a liar like Trump and overthrowing democratic principles, we need to do something! Our peace of mind and safety depend on it.

This doesn’t call for being analyzed on the couch, it calls for a boycott on anyone who supports liars.

Don’t buy or use the products of the above companies!

I’m switching to AT & T and will do my best to not buy or use products that advertise on Fox News. That will make me feel MUCH better. If we all do that, perhaps we can get rid of Hannity et al.

If you enjoyed reading, Inside the Mind of a Psychiatrist, you might also enjoy Dr. Smukler’s novels – Chasing Backwards, a psychological murder mystery, Skin Dance, a mystery, and The Man with a Microphone in his Ear. All are available as paperbacks and eBooks.
