Why don't we send fools like this instead?
The gift that just keeps giving and giving. You can’t fix stupid.
She’s a gem, isn’t she. The hell of it is that she’s probably smarter than the sockpuppet who lives in our White House.
Too mad she doesn’t have a retractable mouth.
Alligator filled moats and entry foyers filled with angry pit bulls too. At least it will really cut down on class-cutting.
Tighter gun control laws will just make more victims for her constituents.
Or, how about this, Congresswoman: someone disables the steel-retractible walls and sets fire in the school?
That's OK, take your time...
One of the more intelligent members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
No: I am not kidding.
Yeah, let’s also put retractable walls on Guam so we can balance it to prevent too many people from capsizing it!
OK........I absolutely don’t get this logic. This is what you get when everyone wants to be a Problem Solver, even somebody who thinks that we landed on Mars happens to have a solution. Didn’t Virginia Tech teach anyone(ironic I know) that there should be the option to allow guns in any place of education?
And, Ms. Lee, how do we get the gunman OUT after he locks himself in behind those steel walls?
Could this woman be any more insane?
How about a 500 yard wide protected No-Man's Land or DMZ?
That would have a dual-benefit in places like Detroit where they need to demolish square miles of dilapidated housing anyway.
That is such a sad truth! I am ashamed that she is from my home state of Texas.
My son was involved in an on line discussion (college course) regarding allowing concealed carry on campus. For awhile he was the only person for - then a girl spoke up about being unable to defend herself if two men approached in the parking lot (for example) and suddenly a few of the girls in class seemed to understand that logic. Most still were too stupid to get it, but I thought it was interesting that it took quite a few comments by my son before others who favored CCL spoke out.
I am ashamed to live in the same state as sjl. Dumb morons that elect her time time after time have the IQ of a rock.
Everybody has a Cross to bear, I have to bear Steny Hoyer.
A career politician who doesn’t know what it is to do a days work and cannot get his nose out of Obama, and Pelosi’s butts.
Voted against him for the last 20 years. Might as well spit into the wind.
Well, SJL is obviously totally nuts, but I think a plain and simple bar that could be dropped across the classroom door to KEEP THAT DOOR SHUT would be very fast to implement, and effective. A "shooter" confronted by such a barrier is then limited to firing blindly through the door/wall/window in door.
Difficult to impossible to "shoot out the lock".
Eventually the door should be bulletproof. Put bookshelves/chalkboards along entryway walls on the sides of the door.
I fortunately have never had to suffer a politician representing me against my wishes for that long.
Maybe one day soon, you’ll get a Rep. you want. At least I hope you do.
That is why I call them Demacrats
No! We need rocket propelled ejection desks that can shoot through the roof and propel the kids at least 2 miles from the school.
Well typically students are very shy to voice anything that may sound politically incorrect when it comes to any group of them. I know because I was in a classroom with a professor of indoctrination and nobody, I will also blame myself, would speak out or give a strong contradictory viewpoint. I also will say that I don’t know how well-informed college students are nowadays about political issues like gun control.
Two times have I received alerts on my phone of an armed intruder who made it to either the Boca or Davie locations of FAU, the university I currently attend. Both of those alerts led to nothing except the inability for vehicles to come into the campus, possibly even to pick someone up. While I appreciate the alerts I cannot help but wonder if concealed carry would stop, or reduce, the inconveniences especially if these are only alerts to people entering college who just happen to have firearms.
One of the other posters told me, and another individual, that we have a lot more influence on our peers than we think. How active is your son regarding campus politics? Sounds like he has the ability to motivate people to speak about views that may not be par the course for college campuses. If this is normal for him, he could play an active role in the student government.
I would love to get into my debate class, at the Santa Fe Community College, and how I was the only one to volunteer to debate the pros of the Iraq War but that may make the thread veer off topic.
How about a moat? Filled with sharks? WITH FRICKIN’ LASERS ON THEIR HEADS!

Politicians that haven’t been receiving enough attention are coming out of the woodwork just to flap their jaws and get noticed. It’s how they’re wired and I think history has proven you dont have to be intelligent to be a politician; all you need is a big mouth. Jackson is one of them.
Hmmm. You may be on to something here.
Frankly, I'm not enthusiastic about arming the teachers. I've met a lot of them, and didn't entrust my kid to their care. Never mind, trust them to carry safely around my kid (or anyone else's, for that matter).
But the concept of a simple door bar should be easy enough for even the dimmest of them to grasp.
Gosh, that would make a great humor book: “The Wit and Wisdom of the CBC: From Sheila Jackson Lee to Hank “Guam Will Tip Over” Johnson.”
I have Barbara Boxer so I win.
I mean, lose.
just like a democrat, they never use logic.
I still can’t post a picture but there is a great one here- an armed female Israeli teacher with elementary school children on a class outing.
THAT is what we need.
You’re probably right. Afterall how else do we know politicians like Hank Johnson, and Sheila Jackson Lee except for their ignorant and stupid statements?
That’s the truth. I lived in what I considered a solid conservative area (Rock Hill SC) for several years and had to put up with John Spratt. I wish they could have gotten rid of him before 2010.....I also regret that I moved before I could vote in the district to get rid of him. Sadly in the 6th Cong. District is mandated by the feds to be Majority black so they will ALWAYS be Democrat.
Each classroom could have a small hardened shelter built into it, where the door is barred from the inside. Communication means within the shelter can relay info, both when under attack or for informing all is under control.
It would be terrifying having to flee to such a shelter, but cement blocks can take bullets far better than flesh.
Great idea, Sheila.
That way, the next time a muderous (but intelligent) nutcase gets into a school, he can deploy the retractable walls and keep the police out.
Then he can hunt down and kill all the defenseless victims at his leisure, rather than just a few handfuls. Hey, maybe he’ll even have time to stop in the cafeteria for a government-sanctioned snack before he liquidates the lunch ladies.
Is SJL sporting her famous “double weave crown” or has she gone all out for the “triple weave”?
Maybe on her next trip to NASA to talk about astronaut flags on Mars she can ask to see the Star Trek containment field in action?
I gotta sit through an ad for an idiot movie to listen to an idiot? No thanks.
Sheila, you know what would have fixed the situation? A $300.00 piece of bullet proof glass. They said the perp shot out the glass and opened the door. If the glass is bulletproof, he isn’t getting in, the admin is calling 911 and the perp is taken down within 5 minutes.
I am pretty sure a few parents wouldn’t mind chipping in a couple of bucks each to make this happen. If the schools do it, they will need a bond referendum, approval from the EPA, several unions to open the door, take the glass out, watch the person install the glass and then apply for OT.
no no no... we just need a BIGGER SIGN that says “GUN-FREE ZONE”
The killer obviously didn’t see it
Reportedly, she throws cell phones and such at her staff when she gets all worked up.
Wonder what the employee turnover rate is in her office.
Just another opportunistic dimrat.
Has she ever shown such concern for citizens of her district that are murdered by illegals?
Guess she didn’t get that message.
But don’t classroom doors open outward?
