  1. Unfortunately, this can be used against people. Someone reports that you’re talking about suicide, or that you seem despondent. Maybe enemies who claim that they’re your friends. Your protestations are ignored.

    • Gee, we never thought of that!! Remember, politicians aren’t very bright. They call it unintended consequences.

      • When we have a legislature whose motivation is to pass legislation for the sole purpose of virtue signaling and “feeling good about themselves”, we end up with many unintended consequences. A majority of Vermonters voted for this supermajority. We is dumb.

  3. And the insanity persists. There’s NO limit.
    Boys are not boys.
    Girls are not girls.
    AND….if you want to kill yourself we will help you…I mean stop you…I mean you have that right…I mean we have to stop you…I mean…
