Hi AW...

I was on record here - I got each Vax as early as I could get in line. I quarantined zealously for these years. I also voted Biden for two reasons (I want to milk ACA and other money from taxpayers who deserve to be milked. Also, - covid. I despised making a mockery of masks and vaccines so while *some* here are gutless wonders - I was happy to openly go against "my side" so there's not much more I can do to agree with you on Covid safety)

Yes, people who are a danger to themselves and others - should be shamed - like YOU said.

So despite sex-ed in my public school - if I go have sex and get HIV - will you shame me? Any posts from you shaming those who got STDs?

If I carelessly engage in behavior, that gets someone pregnant before being married, and I had NO plan how to care for a family - - and I join the 33% of Americans, 70% of Americans within *some* communities in feeling the economic punishment of having kids carelessly - -do you shame me? Any posts from you links? Links shaming people who engaged in such economically destructive behavior?

If someone carelessly takes out loans, to get a major in something that is not marketable and whines about jobs and debt - any posts from you shaming them, and telling them to stick their college loan payments?

I know you'll find ways around that - you're smart and good at this. I'm spoiled, the one who usually engages me is weak and easy to meltdown so when I get a real person - I gotta recalibrate :). But either way.....YES, I AGREE - people who , AFTER warning - engage in behavior destructive to them and others- DESERVE to be shamed. Someone here used to say 'punishment'.

The death - even I can't cheer.

But the mayhem, violence, angst, tribalism, ungovernability....well, I won't express my reaction - but I think even the non-diverse enclave knows what it is -
