Some headline writer at the New York Times mucked up last night, referring to the House of Representatives sit-in led by Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) as "bedlam." Unfortunate choice of words -- "bedlam" was originally used as a term for a British insane asylum.

Thanks to Rep. Lewis et al., the issue is being discussed, with sanity and strength. Finally.

And the Democrats used technology -- smart phones -- to share live streaming video, the same way We, the People did May 18-20, 2016 when dull Republican St. Johns County Administrator MICHAEL DAVID WANCHICK, a/k/a "MIKEY THE WEASEL," refused to televise "his" budget hearings, which were televised by activist-videographer Jeffrey Marcus Gray, allowing citizens to watch what WANCHICK wanted to do in secret, during the daytime, inaccessible to most people. (Perhaps they were inspired by what we did here in St. Johns County.)

The dirty, devious, dastardly, divisive, dull Republicans running the show in the U.S. House of Representatives won't allow a vote on measures to keep automatic weapons out of the hands of terrorists and insane people.

Time for them to go.

IF you see U.S. Rep. RONALD DION DeSANTIS during his latest paid vacation a/k/a "District Work Period," tell the smarmy snooty selfish sibilant phony what you think of him and his ilk -- silk-stocking Republicans who claim to be "tough on crime" but are owned by NRA.
