  • NO people in this discussion want to separate kids from parents
    • Short-term solutions INCREASE the long-term problem
    • Short-term solutions INCREASE the number of kids in this situation over time
    • Half the country believes other half is okay with child abuse
  • Analogies aren’t thinking
  • When kids are stressed…
    • Our human natural reaction is to care and help them
    • That natural reaction inhibits our ability to think objectively and long-term
  • Alan Dershowitz observation
    • Death camp analogy is a form of holocaust denial
  • All laws and penalties are deterrents

 

I fund my Periscopes and podcasts via audience micro-donations on Patreon. I prefer this method over accepting advertisements or working for a “boss” somewhere because it keeps my voice independent. No one owns me, and that is rare. I’m trying in my own way to make the world a better place, and your contributions help me stay inspired to do that.

Man Claims His Wife’s Odd Addiction Is Destroying Their Marriage

Sherman claims his wife of 15 years, Delphi, is addicted to kava and kratom teas, and he says it’s tearing their world apart. “When Delphi drinks the kava and kratom, it affects her behavior,” Sherman explains. “Kratom gives her energy and a high. Kava gives Delphi a euphoric effect. She’s flaky, and nothing else can get accomplished.” He says she spends $ 400 to $ 600 a month at kava bars.

Sherman says his wife is in total denial about her addiction to the teas, which come in the form of powder, capsules and liquid, and are marketed as herbal pain relievers. He also claims his wife is addicted to alcohol, Adderall and vaping.

Delphi is adamant she’s not addicted to anything. “My husband is always yelling at me about being addicted, but I don’t think that I’m addicted to it,” she says in the video above. “I do not think that kava impairs me; if anything, it helps me to get more things done.”

Delphi says the only problem she has is her husband, whom she calls controlling, condescending, verbally abusive and “completely unbearable.” She admits she goes to kava bars 4 to 5 times a week because it’s “soothing and comforting,” adding, “I’m doing it out of spite, because all my husband does is yell at me about it, and it makes me just want to do it more.”

Is there any hope of saving this marriage? Dr. Phil weighs in on Friday’s episode. Watch more here, and don’t miss the Season 14 premiere on Monday, Sept. 14! Watch a preview here.
