Mid-Twenty-somethings suffering from post traumatic stress disorder without any traumatic event in their lives led Dr CT Cobb to do a little math. Seventeen is the common age of political awakening and over the past 7 years these wretches have only known one president, the worst in US history - No wonder they have this grave psychological disorder!
But the search for a cure or at least a treatment preoccupied the good doctor day and night. he tried enrolling the patients in US History courses to give them some perspective but he had forgotten what a parade of atrocities those courses often are.
One patient actually jumped out of the US History 101 classroom window screaming: "Slavery, Tobacco and weapons! Oh I feel so much better!"
Fortunately the class was being taught on the first floor of Iona College's Dealy Hall and the would-be suicide just fell into some bushes (which just made things worse! ). Next, a series of films about US History were shown tio the subjects but they did little good since they were mostly about slavery, tobacco and guns.
Dr Cobb convened psychological and psychiatric experts from around the world to try and develop a treatment for the Bush Traumatic Shock disorder that was derailing the promising lives of young adults across America. The esteemed group met around the clock debating the possible cures from medications, to talk therapy strategies. Finally they seemed to stumble on a promising treatment.
