Paul Ryan says that now is not the time for partisan politics.

And he is correct. Now is the time for real leadership. Unfortunately for the country, and for the many victims of gun violence, the GOP is essentially a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Enterprises and the weapons manufacturers who control the NRA.

So unless or until voters recognize this and stop electing these corporate controlled clowns, nothing will change on gun regulation, the tax code, labor law, the environment, renewable energy, healrthcare, or any of the urgent needs in this country.

1. Whenever one of these shootings occurs, the GOPers say it's too soon

to discuss gun control. Sandy Hill was five years ago; is it still too soon?

2. "Too soon", followed by "in the past"

The window when they think it's okay to talk about it is very, very small and apparently a well-guarded secret.

9. It will always be too soon.

Freedom for a tiny minority of Libertarian gun fantasists requires that the vast majority walk around in fear of the next inevitable gun massacre.

10. He did what he will do now. Ask his donors for more money.

And provide cover for Trump as he and McConnell pursue their agenda of remaking the US.

4. "now is not the time for partisan politics" is the perfect start of your resignation statement.

Do it Ryan!

5. God was bombarded with thoughts and prayers after Sandy Hook not to mention all the

mass murders since. Nothing at all from God. Maybe He wants actual deeds?

"If we were sincere and literal about them, the prayers would not be extended or sent to people; they would be said to God on their behalf. Instead, expressions of "thoughts and prayers" are mostly said to the press or to fellow congressmen (the Congressional Record is a good source for instances of these phrases). The word is the deed; no actual prayer is needed ... nor much thought, either."

12. All a part of the script.

But the GOP donor class DID receive their huge, permanent, tax cuts.

14. The GOP did pass the huge "tax cut for billionaires" tax bill.

What more did you expect?
