A haiku for my plants:


Why are you dying?

Lots of water ISN’T good?

Guess I love too much.

House Democrats stage sit-in for gun control action

Democratic members of Congress led by Rep. John Lewis (D Ga.) staged a sit-in Wednesday morning on the House floor, demanding a vote on gun reforms in the wake of the Orlando, Florida, massacre. More than two dozen members joined in. Right after they started, the GOP took steps to make sure few saw the sit-in.

Update: House Democrats’ sit-in to force a vote on gun control passed its 20th hour early Thursday morning, with a handful of members still gathered on the floor of the chamber wrapped in blankets and vowing to hold out until Republicans schedule a vote on a bill that would ban suspected terrorists from purchasing firearms.

The sit-in at times grew raucous.

When Ryan — who dismissed the sit-in as a “publicity stunt” — entered the floor to schedule a vote on an unrelated spending bill, Democrats in the chamber loudly chanted over him.

A crowd of protesters gathered outside to support the sit-in at times grew so loud their chants could be heard in the House chamber.

Most unprecedented of all, however, was despite the GOP trying to hide it, the way the sit-in has been broadcast to the public.

Update: Democrats ended a 25-hour long sit-in to push for a vote on gun control legislation Thursday afternoon, saying that while they did not succeed in pushing for a vote, they “must never give up.”

In his speech, Rep. Lewis promised that the fight is not over.
