Sheila Jackson Lee: We’ve lasted some 400 years operating under the Constitution…
Hotair ^

Posted on 03/12/2014 9:28:04 PM PDT by chessplayer

I don’t typically like to give anyone too much grief for what could easily be an innocent mental-to-verbal lapse, but… c’mon, now. Given that she took to the House floor to explicitly argue against the constitutionality of the GOP’s proposed Enforce The Law Act, I must say that her argument might have been a teeny bit more convincing if she was a little more firm in her background knowledge of the actual Constitution. Yikes.

Correction, they drove through Hawaii and on to Guam, and Guam capsized!
This woman, and I use the term loosely, gives morons a bad name.

If the Constitution is 400 years old, Ms. Sheila Jackson Lee, which President, by executive order, delayed its implementation for 175 years?

Do not say anything negative, you will be considered intolerant. After all, she is African-American—wait I should not have said that either. Oh boy, am I in trouble now.

I use a slightly different version:

I have even used it on FR.

Fun factoid: 420 years ago, jews expelled from Ferdinand and Isabela’s Spain established a trading post in what is now southern New Mexico, making Socorro the longest continually inhabited settlement within modern US borders, and predating the nation by almost two centuries.

RATS have no clue about what the Constitution is or what it is for. They have been bending it out of shape for so long that it has no meaning for them.

” Is SJL the same twit who thought we went to Mars in 1969?”
__________________________________________________________
Quoting SJL:
“Did the Mars Rover take any images of the flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars?”
Other famous SJL quotes:

Hurricane names are too ‘lilly-white’. All racial groups should be represented and federal weather officials should try to be inclusive of African-American names.

All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.

I am so glad that we won the Vietnam War. Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace.

Don’t you let them tell you that Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids are too tight in her hair and that has something to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that.

Every day S! either does or doesn't do something.

For the LSM this reinforces the analysis that she is still a doofus.

From Wikipedia:

"In 2012, Jackson Lee was not challenged in the Democratic primary and won the general election with 75% of the vote."

I know several democrats who say Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman are stupid. Yet they vote straight democrat. Ask them about Jackson-Lee and you get a blank stare. That shows me they’re just as dumb as she is.

LOL! And that's why they decided to make Hawaii the 57th state.

These are the people who want to dictate to us how to educate our children.

Well, they do know that it gets in their way some times.

They can’t even fathom the concept that it is intended to keep the government from oppressing the people,

because in their belief system such an idea can’t even happen.
