Somebody talk me down! Just got into a shouting match with an

aide to Rep. Womack in Rogers, Arkansas over DACA.
First time I've ever lost it on a call. The guy tried to tell me that there wouldn't be any deportations unless 'they do something wrong. I said, "Bullshit!".

I'm still shaking with anger.

1. Well you are right of course, due to the history of 'do something wrong,'

so this may not help you. DON'T have that 'sinking feeling.'

3. Don't put yourself through it; it's not worth the trouble.

The guy you talked to was probably nothing but a stooge reading from a sheet of talking points. As I always say, "Don't get mad, get even."

4. Take a deep breath, and then another.

Take a walk if that is possible. Listen to some music and pet an animal if you have one.

Unless the animal is a fish. Do not attempt to pet the fish.

And recognize that GOP politicians lie reflexively.

5. To those buttholes, "doing something wrong" is just being here.

6. It's the most frustrating thing when supporters of mean-spirited policies deny that those policies

have any negative impact on anyone.

7. "Doing something wrong" is wide open for interpretation.




Having a Hispanic name could be considered something wrong
by them, or any law enforcement who felt the same way.

9. The "do something wrong" clause is already baked in since they came to the US

illegally. Therefore they (even as children) broke the law and can be shipped out without a qualm.

11. To some, "Doing something wrong" includes the color of your skin,

 

your name, accent, who you love, what sex you are, what sex your brain tells you you are, what religion you choose/don't choose, etc.


on edit, forgot a big one - who you vote for.

13. Thanks for the call.

Talking to Womack - or anyone who would work for him - cannot be a rewarding experience but Womack and his ilk need to know that not all Arkansas folks support his hateful agenda.
