Let us NEVER FORGET the IDIOT Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) asking the staff of the Johnson Space Center in Houston about the Mars Rover: What a glowing example of the wisdom from the African-American Race.

I still say it’s because they want her out of the Congressional Black Caucus and this is the only way they can do it.

Anyone who works for the Government knows that many times the only way to get rid of the trash is to promote it , and send it somewhere else.

I would love to see his (Obama's) administration filled with Lee's, McKinney's, and Sharpton's.

(fwiw, I don't think McKinney's as bad as the others)

That would actually be awful. The puppet-masters who run the RNC would get arrogant and overconfident that they could win the next election without the conservative vote. They'd get in our faces with a Jeb/Christie ticket or worse. Then they'd tell us that constitutional conservatives have to choose the "lesser of two evils".

And when conservatives don't bother, the ptb don't care. As long as they have control of the Republican party, they get all the benefits that come with being the fake opposition.

IDIOCRACY was a satire when it came out. Now, it's close to being a documentary.

I love that movie. Every time I watch it, I notice something new and hilarious.

"We saw millions of Republicans sit at home out of spite rather than vote for Romney, after seeing what Obama had done do the country in his first term."

I voted for McCain and Romney. I will not vote for any more like them. In fact, I am changing my registration to "independent." It's quite clear the Republican Party is now just an appendage of the Democrat Party -- and I don't want anything to do with either of them.

Ah Ms.Kawanza, of course. She is the perfect candidate. Makes perfect sense.

If the Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t scare us, lets fill the government up with black radicals and see if THEY makes conservatives cry.

LOL- except- the MB and the NAACP might look like interesting bedfellows- but THEY will kill each other at some point. Do you really think Islamist, who hate drunks, are going to appreciate the she-nay-nay of the ghetto black crack head?

Pft.

What a cage match.

Go ahead- Obama. You think you are so smart.

Play through and let’s watch your genius.

At first I found it humourous about Sheila Jackson Lee, but then I realized it’s Barry’s way of messing with Texas. Put Queen Sheila in charge of gun grabbing. Let her deploy DHS troopers to do some election poll monitoring. Obama could be pushing big time for a one Party country and RINO GOPers are just rolling over. Look how they voted on NSA funding. Get ready for Hildabeast in 2016, she’s worse than Obama. GAME OVER!!!

I’m real curious about Quannell X. Every time I read the Houston Chronicle and there’s talk of a black person more loony than Queen Sheila, I keep hearing the name Quannell X. Can some FReepers from Houston please provide some info. on this clown. I’ve been thinking that if I ever return to the US, I’m headed straight for Houston. I would like to learn more about Houston politicians, especially the Democrats out there.

"If by appointing her would be a political advantage ....Obama would do it...."

It would be very easy for Obama to blame her, along with Republicans WHO DIDN'T VOTE AGAINST HER, for the absolute failure SJL would be as head of HHS.

SJL would be very easy to throw under the bus.

SJL would provide another "phony scandal".

Count on that. She is a walking scandal now - just waiting to be one of BO's "phony scandals".

That said, he will probably want her in the position as head of HHS so she can take the heat for Obama's failed policies re: homeland security.

Sounds like SJL -- did she look around for the press? She is a total press hog -- she goes to every funeral she can - to get face time.

She is an aisle hog, too, when president speaks - doesn't matter which party or who is speaking. She makes SURE she gets an aisle seat.

Quannell X is Houston’s most prominent professional race pimp, and if that isn’t unsavory enough, a muslim as well. He sticks his dirty nose every place it doesn’t belong, and the media gives him disproportionate face time. He’s our local version of Jesse Jackson, but not nearly as, ahem, charming.

Quanell 10 is the leader of the New Black Panther Party here in Houston. He is a convicted drug dealer and, probably more to who he really is, was forced out of the Nation of Islam - so he is too radical for even Calipso Louis (Farrakhan). He’s known as a community activist, kind of like other poverty pimps / race baiters like Obama, Jesse and Rev Al.

A couple of years ago, several members of the Black community made allegations that they paid him but received nothing in return (he apparently demands money upfront).

Some of his more famous acts:

- he supported 18 men accused of repeatedly gang raping an 11-year-old girl, and stated “It was not the young girl that yelled rape. Stop right there — something is wrong, brothers and sisters”, “Where was the mother? Where was the father?” Most of the suspects pleaded guilty or were convicted.

- he once advised Houston Blacks that “if you feel that you just got to mug somebody because of your hurt and your pain, go to River Oaks and mug you some good white folks.”

- he led rallies against Joe Horn (killed two illegal Columbain thugs who had broken into his neighbor’s house and were leaving it with stolen property - Joe Horn was cleared by a Houston grand jury). In one of the rallies, he told blacks to ignore “white law.”

Yea, Houston is home to Quanell and Sheila!

Two thoughts:

- I suspect the CBC is fed up with her and this is the only way they know of to get her out.

- I just don’t know how we will survive without the image of her with her crown weave and outlandish dress when the President comes down the aisle for the State of Union address (for those not from Houston - she or a staffer gets there early in the morning to secure the seat).

And, a true story:

I was returning to Houston from D.C. one afternoon and she happened to be on the same flight. When she got on, she asked a man in the front row of the First Class section to move, which he graciously did, then she asked the third person who was supposed to sit in the same row to find another seat, which she graciously did, so SJL had the row all to herself. A couple of her staff were on the same flight - they sat in Economy, but were constantly at her side taking orders.

Just for the record - she would be a disgrace to Houston, all of Texas, the U.S. and her race even if she weren’t Black.

Somebody's been pulling your leg. Quannell X is the soul of reason and good race relations compared to Queen Sheila.

She's an obscenely racist, totally communist pig with an ego bigger than Texas and and attitude meaner than the alligators in Lake Houston.

BTW, she infested Houston from New York.
