    Have you seen “government” “workers”!? No. Just. No.

  2. I told them my story, heard a gunshpt and then the line went dead. I feel better. I’ll call again tomorrow.

  4. Well, the shrinks can diagnose Trump’s insanity from afar, so they should do as well talking people off the ledge. Right? What a psychic hotline boondoggle.

  5. … from an idea by BrassG

    “Suicide Hotline, how can I help you? You say your name is Mr. ‘Kapernick’? … yeah … ‘Just Do It'”.
    “Suicide Hotline, how can I help you? … um hum … well, Ms. Pelosi I’d advise you to get over your ‘feelings’ of ‘animal humping’ towards ‘Mr. Trump’, step away from the Botox (& any open flames near your face, by the way) & acknowledge your smart enough, good enough &, doggone it, people really like you.”

Some states prohibit pro-lifers from trying to convince young women not to kill their unborn child, but now the federal government is going to promote people who will try to convince someone from killing themselves. Some states will pin a double murder on someone if they kill a pregnant woman, but will allow that same woman or a medical professional to kill her unborn child.

    I’m on the all life is sacred side.
