So the Senate defeated a gun control bill. Doesn’t matter what the bill was about. The fact of the matter is the bill was defeated. Game over. End of story. But in an actual REAL LIFE situation today, a bunch of congressman took their ball and went home because they lost:

There it is folks. This is why we can’t have nice things. All of these people were elected by the people to vote on bills. They voted on a bill and it didn’t go their way and now they’re refusing to work. This is how they honestly believe a democracy works. Voting doesn’t matter. Hissy-fits matter.

And everyone single one of the fuckmuffins on their cell phones should bow their heads in shame. Newsflash – if you’re on your cell phone while you’re protesting, then you’re not really protesting. You’re playing Candy Crush and taking selfies to put on Twitter so you can feel good about yourself. During a real sit-in people throw milkshakes on you and put cigarettes out on your neck. Ask John Lewis, he’s been through a few of those.

Then there’s this:

Stop making me like Republicans!!! Turtleboy really doesn’t wanna like Republicans but you idiots are making that impossible!!!These idiot congressmen have adopted the same tactics as Occupy Wall Street and black lives matter. You’re not taking any action to end gun violence. You’re sitting down on a taxpayer funded carpet while collecting a salary to LITERALLY DO NOTHING. Do you honestly think Paul Ryan is gonna see this and change his mind? Have we reached that level of stupidity? Ya know what’s gonna happen when this sit in is finished? The bill is STILL gonna fail, and all these jackwagons are gonna look like bigger idiots.

The bottom line is, you lost. America is a representative democracy. Republicans control the House and the Senate, so for the time being, they get to win more often than not. If you don’t like it then vote the Republicans out. This is how grown up world works.

Fuck. Congress.

P.S. Old people who use hashtags (AKA Congress) to try to seem hip are the most annoying people on earth. You’re fucking old. Embrace it and stop trying to be cool.

    I am glad they can’t work. Work for them is wasting millions on some overpriced bike path that is 15 seconds long on a tricycle while North Lake Ave is about to fall into the lake and is reduced to one-way.

    Maybe McGovern should just vote. And since there is no bill his vote will be a nullity like it often is. McGovern does realize that ? there is nothing to vote on ? maybe not. ….boy wish he cared about the porous borders that have proven time and time again to allow in dangerous people.

    How is this really different than any other day Congress gets paid to do nothing? Whats the difference if it is a “sit-in” or a fillibuster or just plain saying no to everything? In all those cases, nothing gets done. Our Congress has shown that they prefer to do nothing unless they are forced to act, and even then, being forced doesn’t always seem to spur action. Yes, we have a representative democracy but when almost 90% of the country supports something and Congress still fails to act on it, we have a problem with our representation and something needs to be done. But the first step is to bring this attention so that people are forced to see the nonsense both sides are engaging in. This will as you say, make some people like Republicans, but it will also make some like Democrats for at least bringing this much needed public attention and for standing up for the will of the people.

    The liberals once again exploit tragedy and try to keep the American people’s eye of the ball, namely the Country is not safe since Obama got in. Especially the last 4 years. ISIS came into existence under Obama, the JV team, he said. In concept the America people do not want suspected terrorists to buy guns, but that is not what the liberals proposed in the actual legislation. The devil is always in the details.

    If you don’t get your way scream and stomp your feet and throw a tantrum. McGovern has always wanted to turn the U.S. into a third world shit hole. Now Congress looks just like the ones in Venezuela and South Korea. Too bad these dolts didn’t care as much about terrorists or making the black neighborhoods safe.

    Our American Government is the worst system in the world. Except for ALL the others. Look, we have a society and political system that is not perfect, but our so-called Leaders (Democrats) staging an embarrassing stunt because the didn’t get the result they wanted is ridiculous. You wonder why this society is degrading as people that don’t get their way blame others, throw tantrums, and shout down free speech of opposing views.

    Good take TB

    How about enforcing existing gun laws before passing new ones. Besides, the ultimate goal here is to take away everyone’s guns, but does anyone actually believe that the criminals will turn in their guns.

    How about focusing on the real issue — radical Islamic terror!

    These guys are the only ones actually doing their jobs, dipshit. The US overwhelmingly wants these measures to pass but bought and corrupt trashbags in our government will never do anything about it.

    These guys are the only people in government actively using their time to better the country as opposed to all those who we shovel money at to do NOTHING.

    Yeah such babies! They should just do what the Republicans do and try again. I mean they voted over 50 times to repeal Obama-care, despite the fact that they didn’t have the votes. Did they give up? Or try to get the votes? Or maybe offer alternative legislation? No! They brought it to a vote 50 more times! That’s dedication!

    Not Just the No-Fly List
    June 14, 2016
    by Lori Robertson

    SEE Washington Post, December 11, 2015
    Democrats’ misleading claims about closing the no-fly list ‘loophole’

    The bill Democrats have proposed WOULD NOT USE just the No-Fly List of approx 64k people. But it would be from a very large “Watch List” which would include over a million people. It is unclear how people are added to the “Watch List” or whether they actually belong on the list at all. The Republicans want to insure due process rights for those placed on the “Watch List” and allowing them a means to contest.

    So who actually has the right to add someone to the Watch List?? Can they add just anyone??

    This article is 100% inaccurate. Umm…you do realize the bills came up for vote in the Senate. And the “sit in” is happening in the House of Representatives. Two totally different groups of people. Congressmen and women in the House did not get to vote on any bills because the Republicans won’t allow a vote. That’s why it’s #NoBillNoBreak. They are demanding a vote. Only the Senate had a vote so far.

    I mean…I can’t…this is basic stuff, dude.

      Basic but still lacking any integrity. Would any of the bills actually do anything to curtail violence using a gun, or would they just be chipping away at law abiding citizens’ 2A rights? Don’t attempt to answer – honest people know when they are being pandered to for the liberals’political gain.

      These hypocrites NEED these bills to fail, so that the Dem members can go back to their districts to tell the lemmings that their republican challengers voted against them. Republicans aren’t playing their games. Political posturing and exploiting tragedies are the Democrats’ stock in trade, and the media abets it. Republicans aren’t much better but they’re not nearly as despicable or outright dishonest as these Dem hucksters.

    “Whether we’re standing to filibuster or sitting in protest, Senate and House Democrats are taking action to end gun violence.”

    Tell that to the people of Illinois – you know, where all those super-restrictive gun laws are really helping:

    “The city (of Chicago) recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and went on to record six others over a 60-hour period that saw 59 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.” – Chicago Tribune, June 20th, 2016
