Unfortunately,,this is how things like this change

As an educator of nearly25years. I've found getting angry at ignorance of this type is aboutas productive as pissing into the wind. rarely effective, often messy. :)

Enabling isn't a thing? Will you expand on that and common misconceptions please?Iam not too familiar of them ouside the post-tehab & post relapse ramblings of my alcoholic Uncle. For years and ears his siblings accused my grandparents of enabling his reckless behaviors byenablung him to erase consequences of his irresponsible actions. I. beleivehelpingvhim take on these responsibilities at thee

him up for financial consequences. He's now, good for him,got his shit together, and at age 57, working to set himself up for a likely doable retirement planI'm trying to understand how my uncle was not enabled to make terrible life choices.

Agreed. My family got into cooking Hello Fresh meals at the start of he pandemic. It took us quite a while to adjust ourselves tfantasy cooking timelines. We became accustomed to understanding That making pork chop with fig sauce was pretty much the entire evening's project. WTF?

True Thousands of Americans die in automobile related deaths each yearNHSTA Says 42,915 Americans bit the dust I. auto related deaths last yearI’d expect there’d be some ore alarm if drivers were randomly infiltrating school hallways and mowing down children and teachers several times monthly. No one is shouting from the rooftops tropes such as , to solve this, we just need more GOOD GUYS with cars!

Cars are dangerous. 6000lb boxes of metal traveling 80mphc produce boatloads of death inducing momentum. It is a fact of life a death we all accept as we move about in automobiles

For reasons we could speculate all day, it seems that the accepted death toll for automobiles seems to also be normalizing forfirearms all so. We’re now telling ourselves guns are as indispensable as cars and handheld bringers of death are an American necessity. I just don’t see I it add up. A government should fear its ciitizenry. That is why we have a free press. ITo be productive! We wanna settle our beefs with words before pointing guns at one another. Go figure.

We provided the world with Betsy DeVos and her continually lament her working to obliterate good public education. for all as she seems tto also desire some Jim Crow version of education making us into ultra- coservative right wing 1It's sad. It's scary. Sometimes we gotta laugh at how f-ed ip it is.Sorry Florida. Thereare people that need to answer for their egoist folly thnat makes is laugh at you so much. You make us uncomfortable with the ignorant things you say and do.

Blind ambition adds some predictability...of failure

I'd predict as their economy accelerates southward Putin finds himself violently deposed. He exists in a tenuous space. allhis own doing.
