    Even with Giffords, I think it's reasonable to replace her (if she hasn't been?...I haven't followed that story in a while). It's sad that she was incapacitated, but at some point, someone needs to be able to do the job she needed to do for the people she represents. If her seat isn't filled (or anyone's for that matter), a literal and metaphorical voice of some people in the nation is lost. To me, that does a great disservice to our political system.

    Yeah but you can't throw someone out of their job just cause they got sick... there has to be a reasonable amount of time for someone to get better ... + if you have a Dem or republican elected by the people, but the person who would pick the replacement will pick the opposite... you are doing a disservice to the people by putting someone in who wouldn't represent the wishes of their constituents (I believe this would have happened for Giffords, but obviously not Jackson)

    I didn't mean to imply that you'd throw someone out just because they're ill. Cases such as Jackson and Giffords are the extreme, and that's what I meant with my post.

    It's a touchy subject, but I think there does need to be some kind of universal system in place to ensure that not only can the person who was elected perform the duties of the job but also can satisfy the needs of their base...which in and of itself is tricky to pin down.

    Read the DSM and not a website that was written in 1996 when (if I'm not mistaken) bipolar disorder may have been classified differently.

    well youd be a wonderful candidate to explain it...
    Like using wikipedia to support a debate(lol) or not even vetting the source to make sure it supported what you were claiming ,like when you said there was a consensus among economists that the Free market was the way to go...and then one sentence latter it retratcted that claim by admitting the consensus was amongst 85(lol) economist that bothered to answer the authors questionaire, and that there was a equally robust group that disclaimed that consensus...LOLOLOLOL.

    Yeah that's tricky... maybe have politicians name successors when they are elected?

    The portion to which i referd was in direct contexst to the notion of pronounced halucenatory,or delusional episodes associated with manic depressives.

    Any one who has spent any time honestly studying the behaviours of people suffering from Bipolar Knows that they are NOT prone to the same psychotic breaks associated with Schizophrenics.
    The do not "see" things. they do not "hear" things, that is exactly what the "doctor" implied.(lol)

    Convoluted, but I'm not opposed to something like that. I'm partial to a true special election, but I doubt that that's something everyone would agree to, and it'd be advantageous for the person who lost, probably, in such a scenario given their name value.

    it's also expensive. It makes sense for the senate, but not so much for the House of reps (well maybe in jacksons case as he's been reelected and not able to show up so iot would be for two whole years)

    Dude. Read your own link.

    Likewise, any psychotic symptoms associated with bipolar disorder should occur within the context of a manic or a depressive state - delusions of grandeur and hallucinations may be either wildly optimistic and grandiose, or completely disastrous and guilt-ridden.

    You again? I thought I fixed your issue...you are still dealing with comprehension issues Gcoll.
    please research the definition of halucenation...You again seem to be struggling with grasping some concepts.

    In the context of the description, "halucentation" is used in a more figuartive way,
    "wildly optimistic" meaning...Im going to train to run the NY marathon in world record time, even though Ive never run before and I smoke a pack a day.

    completely disaterous and guilt ridden meaning: I took a picture of my ex girlfrined down from the wall and she wound up killing herself an hour later.

    what Guilt ridden halucentaion are YOU suggesting?(lol)
    Anything that involves a complete psychotic break is defined in the realm of psychzophrenia

    Hey everybody... Please leave this one alone... I know better I shouldn't have gotten into it... This thread is getting way off the political topic where it started can we please get back to mr Jackson's ethical issues, illness, and lack of showing up to congress?
