Welcome to the product of some good Democrat public school
education indoctrination …
Yesterday on the House floor, the People’s House, Shelila Jackson Lee (D-TX) declared in her ramblings that the U.S. Constitution was 400 years old. HUH, 400 years old? But that would make the Constitution signed in 1614. I am fairly sure that George Washington, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and Benjamin Franklin, all signers of the Constitution were not even born in 1614. Who knew that right after Pocahontas and John Rolfe were married in 1614 that they did not go on a honeymoon, but instead started writing the US Constitution.
No wonder we can’t get Democrats to follow the Constitution, they are going off one that might have been written by Pocahontas.
Newsflash to the not so bright Sheila Jackson Lee … The U.S. Constitution was formally adopted on Sept. 17, 1787. But do not let your hearts be troubles, she was only off by 173 years. I think that is considered a passing score with Common Core. Or Maxwell Smart, Agent 86, would say … “missing it by that much”. Yale and Virginia Law School must be so proud.
These people are in charge of making laws that affect us, REALLY? America, would you please wake the hell up and elect people who might actually have a clue! This latest comment brought to us by the individual who thought that Mars Rover would be able to show “the flag the astronauts planted there before”. Um, that would have been the moon, ma’am.
“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not.”
GEEZ … Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) Calls for “Unemployment Insurance for Working Men and Women” (Video)
The gentle woman from Texas said, “the pope being named man of the year has spoken to the world eloquently,” hah, which is more than I can say for Sheila Jackson Lee.
US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called for “unemployment insurance for working men and women.” Huh, didn’t Barack Obama and his minions just tell us that the economy is rebounding? Why would we need an further continuation of long term unemployment. Looks like Sheila Jackson Lee wants to go one better and provide unemployment benefits to the working as well. I am hoping that she misspoke, but then again with these liberal Democrats and Obamanomics, one never knows.
Hey, why not unemployment insurance for all … according to Democrats, best way to grow the economy. What is wrong with these people? How did America ever elect these socialists into the majority of anything?
Let’s not forget this other classic Sheila Jackson Lee moments of brilliance:
- Entitlements Are ‘Earned
- I Stand Here a Freed Slave
- Thinks America planted flag on Mars not the Moon
- My Constituents are Ill-Informed
- There are two Vietnam’s: North and South
- Constitution Gives Me Immunity to Discriminate Against the Disabled

US Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX-D): Obamacare Penalty for Not Buying Insurance Isn’t Penalty ‘Because Penalty is Punishment’ … It’s an Incentive
How are some of these ignorant US Reps continually elected to office … Enter Sheila Jackson Lee.
Once again US Representative Sheila Jackson Lee provides of with more pearls of wisdom. Lee stated that the Obamacare penalty for not purchasing Obamacare is not really a penalty. The clueless one went on to say that a penalty is a punishment, the Obamacare penalty is instead an incentive. YIKES. So a fine for not doing something is not a penalty, but instead an incentive. Who knew? Maybe the voters of her district is Texas will have the incentive to vote to fool out of office.
This is a must see Video to be believed.
Does Sheila Jackson Lee really believe the BS she is spewing?
The law itself states: “If an applicable individual fails to meet the requirement of subsection (a) [having a government-approved health-insurance policy]… there is hereby imposed a penalty with respect to the individual.”
Elsewhere, in a section entitled “Payment of Penalty,” it says that individuals failing to carry a government-approved health insurance policy must pay a maximum penalty of $750.
In Rep. Jackson-Lee’s view, however, this language does not actually impose a penalty.
As Weasel Zippers stated, should we expect anything coherent from Sheila Jackson Lee as she is the same person who called Rush Limbaugh a racist when he called MSNBC host Ed Schultz, “Sergeant Schultz.” Thanks to Michelle Malkin, we are provided with the definition of “penalty” and “idiot”.
