      Bravo! In the Age of Obama anything is possible. YES WE CAN! Rep Lewis is an American treasure and anyone that bad mouths him (cough cough Bernie Bros) are persona non grata in my eyes.

    Awesome Thread…LP….

    Democrats doing their job. Very proud of them. Thank you John Lewis, as VP Biden said: Keeper of our nation’s conscience.

      John Lewis is magnificent as are all those Dems who followed him to the floor of the House. These are the ones who most represent the people of the United States who are fed up with inaction in the face of relentless gun deaths. We aren’t willing to stand aside and wait (eternally) or bow submissively to the gun industry’s Republican lackeys in Congress. Thank God for John Lewis’ courage in stepping forward to say, “Enough.” I am so proud of our Dem reps in Congress and in the Senate. And once again, Paul Ryan reveals himself for the gutless little worm he truly is.

      GA TMG.

      First of many “establishment GOP” no doubt, while GOP Congresscritters up for re-election flee from the media, which will only give louder voices to the unhinged wing of their party (vicious cycle/downward spiral).

    This is wonderful! I’m so proud of and grateful to Rep. John Lewis, Nancy Pelosi and other House Dems, as well as the Senators who are joining them.

    Saw BWD’s Tweet on the other thread and it was just what I was thinking. THIS is how you do it (I hope the “revolution” is on its way to the House in support! They can use all that hassle line training they’ve been doing for the Dem Convention for some real democracy in action (not holding my breath though).

    Also, I’m in love with Keith Ellison’s Mom:

    GA TODville.

    What’s different about #Orlando from all the other horrendous massacres on US soil is that it’s an election year and Dems have the wind behind their back, under their wings.

    While MSM dither and accuse PBO for lack of action on matters that are the responsibility of Congress (and pretty much give Congress a free pass), my guess is that PBO’s political time is now being spent on urging supportive members of Congress to act now.

    May God continue to give them courage, strength of purpose, body and soul as they work to serve the people who sent them there. If the hearts of the republicans and the powerful who won them cannot be softened, then at least may self interest, when they realize that they are on the wrong side of what the public wants and of history, allow them to work in good faith on the changes that we need to save our very lives.

    A special blessing for John Lewis.

    Dudette, Ryan is so far over his head as Speaker that it would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic. He doesn’t begin to understand the enormity of what’s happening in the House right now, not does he grasp that the national zeitgeist has changed and the majority of people are not on his side. Everything in his neat, narrow-minded world is threatened and he’s being called on to display a form of leadership that is literally beyond his ken.

  34. June 22, 2016 at 5:04 pm

    Revolution is hard, people.

    You know one thing I love about this Democratic sit-in? It looks like America! Not the elite country club. Real people representing all colors, religions, kinds of people……..so thankful for this. Thank you Rep. John Lewis. Once again you have roused the conscience of America.

      Yeah, they will be meeting to get their marching order from their paymasters on how to suppress the Dems who are speaking out instead of doing their jobs. How can these republicans live with themselves? Have they lost all honor and responsibility? Why run for office if you hate most of the people who make up the country? Here is their chance to make history and to be lauded for helping us end the scourge of gun related violence, but they are petty, little people who sold their souls long ago to Mammon.

        CEB, here are the answers that come to mind when I read your questions:

        How can these republicans live with themselves? >> They have no soul.
        Have they lost all honor and responsibility? >> You cannot lose what you do/did not have.
        Why run for office if you hate most of the people who make up the country? >> For the sense of power and for the monetary gains.

        Yes, I fully agree with you that they are petty, little people.

    Just thought of this. Both our CBS and NBC station (on local news), made it sound like the Dems had done this earlier today, but it had ended. Amazing that both of them made it sound exactly the same. Hmmmm….

    Heading out to have my routine Mam. BBL. I decided to try to wear some orange in solidarity with the Dem sit-in as long as it goes on. My orange shirts were dirty, so I’ve got an orange necklace on. I think I better get some more orange items for this summer, as this won’t be the last of this kind of action, I’m guessing (hoping, believing).

    Thanks to Chips, Nerdy, LP, other contributors, and everyone participating on TOD for this gathering place!
