    If you think you've got depression issues... stop blaming the occupant of the White House. Get real help!

    The Key West Citizen (news)A Key West businessman who for years gave to AIDS Help and other charities may have taken his own life after a bout of depression over a struggling business and the recent election results, his partner said Tuesday.

    A police detective found 64-year-old Henry Smith Hamilton Jr., owner of Duval Square Tropical Tan, dead at 11:55 a.m. Thursday...

    Found on his bathroom sink was a copy of his living will on which was handwritten, "Do not revive! F--- Obama!" according to police reports.

    Hamilton had been distressed about his business and "very upset" with the outcome of the Nov. 6 presidential election, his partner told police.

    "If Barack gets re-elected, I'm not going to be around," Hamilton had said, according to his partner of 11 years, Michael Cossey, who spoke to police...

    A detective found three prescription bottles in the dining room: one empty bottle for 1 milligram Alprazolams, one empty bottle for 150 milligram Seroquels and another bottle for 50-milligram Seroquels that still had pills inside, reports say.

    Alprazolam is also known as Xanax. Seroquel is used to treat insomnia and bipolar disorder, according to drugs.com.

    Those medications, however, were prescribed to Cossey, Hamilton's roommate and partner of 11 years.

    On Tuesday, Cossey said he did not believe Hamilton ingested those pills, but that he may have taken other pills and drunk alcohol...

    Cossey, 31, said Hamilton had been worried as of late over the tanning business, his other investments and how Obama's re-election would affect his financial holdings.

    What are things I should have discussed with my 30-year-younger lover before promising him the world, Alex?

    One less self-loathing Republican. I feel sorry for his lover and his family, but could care less about his suicide.

    But really, a tanning salon in Key West?

    Because selling snow cones in Reykjavik wasn't an option?

    Anyway, back to my prior point... did businesses NOT go in and out of operation before January 2009? Isn't business failure a normal and routine feature of capitalist societies? What makes the Joe the Plumbers of the world think their little enterprise is oh-so special that they need a certain president to stay out of the red... or worse, to become filthy rich?

    I appears to me that he thought Romney would undo regulations and warnings about the dangers of tanning beds, which recently became widely recognized as being pretty hazardous.

    +1

    Plus he was 64-years-old and was trying to keep up with a 31-year-old lover.

    Plus he was a Republican and he was gay.

    Some people are too stupid to live.
