    •  Well that was harsh. (0+ / 0-)

      I refer to only 49 percent of voters.

      But we are losing them daily -- and the percent of those with intact brains is going up:

      Every day, 22 veterans take their own lives. That's a suicide every 65 minutes. As shocking as the number is, it may actually be higher.

      The figure, released by the Department of Veterans Affairs in February, is based on the agency's own data and numbers reported by 21 states from 1999 through 2011. Those states represent about 40% of the U.S. population. The other states, including the two largest (California and Texas) and the fifth-largest (Illinois), did not make data available.

      Who wasn't counted?
