Since when is Tom Cruise a scientific and health expert?

Damn it…I want to slam him as a crack-pot but I do agree with some of his positions; I do believe children and adults are being over-medicated; I do believe that often instead of trying to work with a child that kid is slapped on a prescription. BUT, I do not believe that because a mistake may or may not have been made diagnosing Tom back in the day means that the entire field of Psychiatry is pseudo-science!

Interesting interview between Cruise and a German reporter, reporter was one of the few that didn’t seem to be cowed by the star power of Cruise and Spielberg and I love how he calls out Cruise on the success of Scientology!

Physicists have been calling psychiatry a psuedo-science for years now. They have a little more credibility than Tom Cruise.

Mr. Cruise had balls to say what he said even if he came off badly. Like you, I agree with many of his positions, but I might have used more tact. Wait a second, this is me we're talking about! Tact?

About Me

My photo
Cali-J ueber alles in der Welt. Some think that I am mean; (I call them friends), in fact I am not that mean. What I am is sarcastic and dry to the sandpaper level. I have friends that I have never said a kind word to their face, but I praise to the ends of the earth to anyone I know and will defend them to the end. That’s just how I roll! My boys know that I am down for them, my girls know that no matter what I will keep them safe (and occasionally flirt with them [If you are a female friend of mine and think I haven’t flirted with you it just means you didn’t notice, it was extremely subtle or…not yet ]). No one is safe from my sarcasm even my own parents; hence of course as a kid I spent a significant amount of time in punishment. I treat people with respect if I think they deserve it – everyone starts off with the same amount of respect from me (a lot). You don’t need to earn my respect; you have to keep my respect.
