[Vent] Need to vent about conservative friends and one in particular.

I have some conservative friends who are so judgmental and so assumptive about people that it really depresses me sometimes to be around them.

One in particular really drives me nuts. She just gossips, judges people, and is so pessimistic all of the time. She is a close friend of a friend and all of our kids go to the same school and so I have to be around her more than I would like to.

This one particular person is pretty much the opposite of me in everything and is so quick to verbally judge others that I slightly convulse to have to be around her. Her political views are opposite of mine. She judges dogs based on their breed. She is overly fearful of everything. She assumes the most negative possibility about everyone. Yuck!

I just feel gross being around these people when they start sharing their apathetic, ignorant, and unfairly judgmental views.

I really need to find another group who is more aligned with me.

GEO runs detention centers & donates BIG to politicians. In 2018, they’ve donated 6 figures to Rick Scott, Heller, Durbin, Lieu, & Graves. They are buying reps while profiting off caging immigrants. 3 in CA died in GEO custody. ACLU claims they deny necessities. Demand the donations be returned!

Here is an article that backs up my claims and here is the open secrets page that documents how much GEO has paid to buy representation in the united states congress.

Just in 2018, they've donated to 18 senators and a couple dozen us reps.

In California, 3 detainees died in custody.

The ACLU claims that they deny detainees proper access to food, water and bathrooms.

It has also been alleged in a lawsuit that GEO has forced inmates to work.

All of those links are also cited in the Dallas News article.

If your senator or us representative has taken money from GEO, give them a call and demand that they return the donation.

They are taking money from a corporation that profits of caging immigrants.

You can find contact info for your senator here.

You can find contact info for your rep here.
