This was encouraging to see today.  But it's just one business in one city.  More signs (and ideologies) like this, please. @saltandstraw

This, however, is going downhill fast.  Kevin McCarthy gives lessons on how to be a mansplaining, privileged, overly-baked potato.

Hi friends!  Nervous about calling congress?  I know I have been!  Having a script helps.  Here are helpful pointers from someone who used to work on Capitol Hill answering the phones:

1. Give your name, city, and zip code, and say "I don't need a response." That way, they can quickly confirm you are a constituent, and that they can tally you down without taking the time to input you into a response database.

2. PLEASE ONLY CALL YOUR OWN REPRESENTATIVES! Your tally will not be marked down unless you can rattle off a city and zip from the state, or are calling from an in-state area code.  I know you really want to give Mitch McConnell a piece of your mind, but your call will be ignored unless you can provide a zip from Kentucky.  And don't try to make this up; I could often tell who was lying before I even picked up the phone from the caller ID.  Exceptions to this are things like Paul Ryan's ACA poll.

3. State the issue, state your position. "I am opposed to a ban on Muslims entering the US." "I am in favor of stricter gun control legislation including background checks." "I am in favor of the Affordable Care Act." That's it.  That's all we write down so we can get a tally of who is in favor, who is against.  It doesn't matter WHY you hold that opinion.  The more people calling, the less detail they write down. Help them out by being simple and direct.

4. Please be nice! The people answering the phones on Capitol Hill already had the hardest job in DC and some of the lowest pay as well, and for a month now their jobs have become absolute murder, with nonstop calls for 9 hours every day.  Thank them for their hard work answering the phones, because without them our Senators could not represent us.

What does this sound like? "Hi, my name is Mark, I'm a constituent from Seattle, zip code 98***, I don't need a response.  I am opposed to any ban on Muslims entering the United States and I encourage the senator to oppose implementation of any such ban.  Thanks for your hard work answering the phones."
