Obviously she’s too far down the totem pole to have staff to answer and screen her phone calls.

Didn't this moron say she was going to ask for a Holiday named after Michael Jackson?

The only reason she continues to get elected is because she is in a district that caters to welfare mommas..and their kids..so the daddy's who ever they are and the mommies vote for the ignorant woman..

She announced the time/date/place of her townhall meeting under the wires.

If someone had to call in to reach her, I’m not surprised. Only 100 made it.

So now there is a cell tower there? Is it close to the American flag she wanted to see planted there?

Cake is prohibited if your BMI is above a certain level, as set by an appointed health board.

Of course, waivers to this restriction can be applied for,

...whoever wrote this story and was disturbed by it, doesn’t undertand Lee’s power base....the average inner city community organized voter down in “da hood” could care less about her taking a cell phone call...hell, some of them were probably taking calls themselves while she was talking...it’s a whole different world down there....populated by feral people who are growing in numbers and influence.

Good point. These are folks who wouldn't think twice about taking a cell phone call in the middle of a job interview, and then complaining later about losing the job offer to "the man"...

Reminds me of standing line, money in my hand, to pay for a product at a department counter when the phone rings and the salesperson says excuse me and turns to answer the phone.....See the person on the phone gets priority over the person that traveled, parked, and selected merchandise at the store.

I have patients try to answer their cellphones when I am examining their eyes.

If they do, I leave the examination room.

I might come back, then again maybe not.

Across the board, cell phones and their gross and frivolous misuse, have ushered in a new level of incivility and a general lack of courtesy that our forebears would have found breathtaking.

Not to mention, incredibly insulting.

Kudos to that “smokin’ hot” patriot who is trying to give Jackson Lee some measure of instruction regarding civil dialogue.

I hope that she gets a job representing her congressional district.
