Constitution Has Lasted 400 Years Says Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas)

Sheila Jackson Lee I am a queen and the US Constitution is 400 years old

Well, Congress was having a nice little chat amongst themselves about trying to get the President to enforce the laws, which are his executive obligation, and that some say he has forsaken, when the good gentlewoman from Texas, Democratic Congresswoman Ms. Sheila Jackson Lee, stepped up to the podium and said,

“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,”

Four hundred years? Did I hear that right? We’ve been operating under a Constitution for 400 years? Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) is supposed to be an educated woman. Is it possible that her Ivy League (Yale) education failed her? She purportedly has a law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law. Did her failings at Yale go undetected by her law professors? Do they even teach Constitutional law there in the home state of the man who wrote the Constitution and founded the very school from which she is alleged to have graduated?

It’s got to make you wonder what she went to law school for. Surely it wasn’t to learn about the Constitution. And surely it wasnt to discover what the Constitution clearly defines and what it does not. Sadly, in America, apparently you don’t need to know the Constitution to know the law to either legislate it, practice it, or sit in a judicial capacity. You just have to think you do. And Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) thinks she knows, she thinks she knows a lot more than she really does.

What she does know about the Constitution is what she can read from between the lines and from the invisible ink that she sees so clearly in her warped sense of juris prudence. She’s kind of like the Barney Fife of the legislative process, but in all fairness to Barney Fife that would be an insult to Barney Fife.

Fortunately, Ms Sheila Jackson Lee’s (D-TX) lesson in history held no sway and the “Enforce the Law Act of 2014” was passed.

H.R. 4138, or the “Chief Executive Who Doesn’t Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments Needs to Get Off of His Ass and Take Care of Business Like He Should and Enforce the Law Act of 2014,” passed in the US House of Representative 233-181.

The bill now goes to the Senate where the chances of this bill passing are about as great President Obama actually obeying the law as he has not yet found that responsibility to be of his liking. However, he still does like playing golf a lot, shopping at the GAP, and long midnight strolls on the beach “alone.”

For those of you who are still counting, the Constitution will be 227 years old this September 17th, having been signed on that date in 1787. You can read about the creation of the Constitution at Archive.gov. I would suggest to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) that she go read about the Constitution, but I don’t want to waste my time. However, if you would like to, you can give her a call at  (202) 225-3816.

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”
― Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was either clairvoyant or he knew something about the perverted hearts and souls of some the men and women that get elected. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee  (D-TX) must go. Think of the children.

  1. Sheila Jackson Lee should resign. She is by far, the most ignorant person in congress. This is not her first dumb thing she has said. She actually thought we landed on Mars. She try’s to act like she has some sort of intelligence but this just shows us what affirmative action can do.

  2. I loved what Daniel Greenfield wrote about her over at Frontpage Mag:

    Jackson-Lee’s only qualification for sitting on the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics was the space between her ears. She visited JPL and asked if the Mars Rover would be able to show “the flag the astronauts planted there before”. Staffers were reportedly surprised that she didn’t complain about cost overruns on the Death Star.
