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

posted at 9:21 pm on March 12, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

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.

Frankly, 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. The Enforcement Act is not constitutional, but it gives us an opportunity to raise these issues. That’s what freedom is, that’s what the opportunity of democracy is all about.

Er… the Constitution was ratified in 1788. About 225 years ago. Merp.

Speaking of idiot congress critters where is Cynthia McKinney these days?

Oldnuke on March 12, 2014 at 10:59 PM

wiki

McKinney announced in April 2012 that she would run for the 4th congressional district against Hank Johnson on the Green Party ticket. However, in August she failed to qualify for the ballot. Nevertheless, she received 58 write-in votes in the general election.

On May 1, 2004, during her hiatus from office, McKinney was awarded the so-called fifth annual Backbone Award by an advocacy group, “because she was willing to challenge the Bush administration and called for an investigation into 9-11 when few others dared to air their criticism and questions.”

leftnomore on March 13, 2014 at 12:18 AM

some 400 years operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not. The Enforcement Act is not constitutional, but

Yes, I recall clearly from my high school civics class how clearly the Constitution spells out the right to privacy in the 63rd Amendment and the right to abortion in the Preamble to the 239th Amendment and the right to gummint housing in the 817th Amendment and the “Obamaphone” 1,538th Amendment and the “Obamawage” 4,999th Amendment. The Constitution is so clear about our rights granted to us by the beneficent almighty gummint.

And there ain’t no way that an act of Congress could be constitutional to force the executive to actually do what the Constitution actually does say he’s supposed to do, right?

The mental slip is an accidental reference to a common trope about the span of slavery running from the moment Columbus touched ground in the New World to the present day: 400 years.

It actually demonstrated that in her mind the Constitution whose authority she’s insincerely appealing to is in fact an instrument of white oppression.

“400 Years” is actually a reflexive phrase in much of the African-American community. It refers to slavery and how, even today, many black people find themselves enslaved. If you go to a black equality rally, at some point someone will shout “400 years”! Then something about no justice, no peace.

This is just a conjecture of mine, but:

Could the “400″ years she referenced be the difference between today (the year 2014) and the year 1619…the year the first Africans were brought to Virginia?

This is a difference of 395 years.

In her own mind, was she equating “the history of the Constitution” as the same as the total number of years of history of people of originally African descent in America?

It’s the only place that seems to make logical sense of where the “400 years” reference comes from?

Lib: “Nuh-uh. Palin really did say it.”

You: “If she said it, can you give me the address of a web page that has the video and audio of her actually saying it?”

Lib: <Excuse goes here>

You: “If I claimed that Obama said something stupid, and that were my excuse for why I can’t produce the actual recording of him saying it, would you accept that excuse?”

Lib: “Um…”

You: “That’s what I thought. Now that you know that something you ‘know’ about Palin isn’t true, consider how much else you ‘know’ just isn’t so.”

I do appreciate the voters in Houston continuing to re-elect her and providing the rest of the country with the ongoing entertainment. However, that is not what I’d want the rest of the nation to see in my district’s elected representative, and not how I’d want our interests represented.

On the other hand, my Heroin, Hillary Clinton, is superbly mellifluous, and totally eloquent.

“…Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it’s my wife and it’s my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I’m better off than dead

When the smack begins to flow
Then I really don’t care anymore…”

This woman has a record in mental to verbal lapses. How uninformed do you have to be to vote for this clown?

Not even one administrative assistant or intern who typed and proofed the speech for their boss, caught it either.

For everyone who ever failed an exam, lost a trivia contest or slipped on a banana, behold Sheila Jackson-lee, a moron’s moron!

Ah yes, the SheJack, always a giver.

The mental slip is an accidental reference to a common trope about the span of slavery running from the moment Columbus touched ground in the New World to the present day: 400 years.

It actually demonstrated that in her mind the Constitution whose authority she’s insincerely appealing to is in fact an instrument of white oppression.

This. Look up Peter Tosh song 400 years. She isnt upset about slavery. There is evidence of tons of black on black slavery. she accepts this. She cannot accept white on black slavery. the issue is not slavery. It is race hate.

Here constituents jumped up and yelled hell yes when she said this. Understand your adversary before you ridicule.

400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And it’s the same –
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
I’ve said it’s four hundred years;
(400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Look, how long (wo-o-o-o)
And the people they (wo-o-o-o) still can’t see.
Why do they fight against the poor youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone –
All gone astray

Come on, let’s make a move:
(make a move, make a move. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
I can (wo-o-o-o) see time (wo-o-o-o) – time has come,
And if-a fools don’t see
(fools don’t see, fools don’t see. Wo-o-o-o)
I can’t save the youth:
The youth (wo-o-o-o) is gonna be strong.
So, won’t you come with me;
I’ll take you to a land of liberty
Where we can live – live a good, good life
And be free.

Look how long: 400 years, (400 years, 400 years) –
Way too long! (wo-o-o-o)
That’s the reason my people (wo-o-o-o) – my people can’t see.
Said, it’s four hundred long years – (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
Give me patience (wo-o-o-o) – same philosophy.

It’s been 400 years, (400 years, 400 years)
Wait so long! Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o.
How long? 400 long, long years. /fadeout/

She should be introduced to the Congressman who thought putting 5000 troops on the Island of Guam would tip the island over. Where do we get these people?
