Re: “Post-election tough at state Capitol for building crew

I was "fired" by Martin when his storm first came to the Capitol. No, I did not expect to stay. However, when I first ran into him post firing and was introduced to him he had no sympathetic remarks;
"Thank you for not being one of those that I canned! He exclaimed at our post election meeting.
"Actually I am" I replied with a lot more washy washy sentiment instead of the righteous indignation I should have expressed.
I then " kissed his ass." I am ashamed of my behavior and submissiveness. I wish I had stood up for the pregnant women he fired, the 1 year from retirement employees who were excellent in their knowledge and love of their jobs, and I wish I knew then what I know five years later- assholes do not care about the Everyman.
I know the people he fired. They were good people. Yes, I came in with an elected official and took someone's job. However, I did not taunt, humiliate, or ignore their situations upon my ascension. I believe that I met it with humility and gravitas. However, I am not perfect so I am sure I did a million things wrong.
What I want the world to know- at least the Arkansas world- is that a lot goes on behind the scenes that you do not see. If you see 2-4 bad articles please know that 15-20 bad things are occurring.

In regards to Jim Comer- he is a hater pure and simple. I have never met one until I met him. He hates and destroys. I feel tarnished from meeting him. This new state government scares me. I hope the "majority" is happy with what they voted in.
