The Octogenarians

Two days ago Democrats staged an unprecedented sit in in the House of Representatives led by John Lewis and powerfully seconded by Nancy Pelosi.The attempt was to get a vote on a “No Fly List ” denial of gun purchase and an “under FBI scrutiny” denial.Speaker Ryan called it “a publicity stunt”.in the senate Susan Collins put forward a bill which was cleverly twisted by McConnell so that the likes of John McCain could vote for it with the assurance that it would not get sixty votes and a simple majority would not do.Let’s hear it for the follow the money,good guys who sell guns (NRA)and our elected representatives who don’t give a tinker’s dam about governing,grief,or fairness!Small wonder that popular sentiment begins to swing toward benevolent despotism.The problem is that while the despot may be big,tall and handsome,he(she)doesn’t stay benevolent long.Greed and scapegoating are soon to wreak havoc.
