Don't cry for me, Argentina!

..meanwhile back in the colonies, it would seem as though we had some problems with our own "Parliament". The aging hippies and civil rights workers who wanted to relive their misspent youth engaged in possibly the most embarrassing display of foolishness by a contingent from an august body already known and revered reviled for its foolish acts when they chose to engage in a "sit-in" on the floor of the House.

You know, just like they did back in the day when they occupied their college dean's office, broke out the dope, and sang "We Shall Overcome".


Which spawned this laughably apropos Photoshop:


The ringleader of this is John Lewis of Georgia, who must have had a cameo shot in the first Star Wars bar scene.


And, lest you think the poor dears suffered for their conscience, well, it turned out to be nothing more than a catered slumber party on -- on our nickel, of course.



So, here's the deal. This is nothing more than a publicity stunt by folks who are paid to run our government and make our laws. And, lest you think that the republicans are the victim of this. The dickless speaker, Paul Ryan, failed to enforce the House's rules of order:

But the final rub on this tantrum is that the Democrats had control of BOTH houses AND the executive branch of government in 2009 when The Lawn Jockey POTUS was elected -- and for a considerable time after that -- before the Republicans gained control of the House and then the Senate. They could have easily passed gun control back then. They failed to do so because the more moderate Democrats and/or those representing conservative, pro-gun districts would not back any such measures for fear of being voted out.

Now they just want to behave silly pack away some free eats in the bargain.

They pouted like little girls when someone reminded them we didn't want our rights stolen.
