The Jury Talks Back

I will admit to having missed this, but nothing more

I know this won’t come as a great shock to anyone, and maybe I’m a tad bit late to the party, but I’m pretty sure that Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) is completely fucking retarded.

“The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she said in a speech on the House floor moments ago. “That is what H.R. 2 does and I rise in opposition to it. And I rise in opposition because it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.

You’re fucking kidding me, right?  I mean, she’s aware that “deprived of liberty” means “sent to fucking prison”, right?  I mean, she’s aware that “trips to the doctor” aren’t the same as “not being thrown the fuck into prison”.  She has to be.  She’s a God Damn member of Congress; she can’t be so ignorant as to not get it, right?

And one second…

it is important that we preserve lives and we recognize that 40 million-plus are uninsured.

Wait a second.  I though it was 35 million.  Where the shit did these extra 5-plus million come from?  Were they hiding in her attic?  Were they in the corner all this time, but with a lampshade over their heads?

I mean, I get it that she – and those like her – just like to make up shit as they go (under the theory that if they spout off enough bullshit they’ll leave us too confused to point out the mistakes), but come on.  This isn’t a damn Monty Python skit here, after all.

Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare

I mean to start with, her assumption is very likely incorrect.  This is an open legal question that is bound for the Supreme Court after all.  Not that a ruling against the abomination of a bill would dissuade her from her erroneous belief, but still…

Besides, even if we accept that the Commerce Clause does indeed give Congress the authority to force me to buy something I don’t want to buy, that does not change the fact that any law can be repealed by any Congress at any time. Just because a law is Constitutional does not mean that getting rid of that law violates the Constitution.

News flash for the Congresswoman: a law passed by Congress is not in and of itself a part of the Constitution. If it was Congress’s intention for it to be impossible for a simple repeal to void the law, they should have actually made it a part of the Constitution.

Though that would have left them with the unfortunate need to get the people to actually ratify the thing, which I somehow doubt would have happened.

So I would like to close this post with something I have not said for quite some time.  Something that I hope the painfully ignorant, dishonest, race-bating diphit of a Congresswoman Jackson-Lee knows I mean with all my heart and soul…

Fuck you, Congresswoman Jackson-Lee.

    I would guess that they are the additional five million people who have lost their jobs during the Reign of Obama. Wonder how many of them were laid off because employers fear the economic calamity to which we have been driven the past two years.

    Keep in mind that it is hard to update lefty talking points to keep up with real-time events.

  3. The good news is there are fewer Texas Democratic leaders today than there were yesterday, thanks to 9 Northeast Texas Democratic leaders who switched to the GOP. Of course, it’s hard to envision this happening with Jackson-Lee since her gerrymandered district is made up of reliable Democratic voters. But some of her constituents are starting to question Jackson-Lee so with redistricting on the horizon, we can hope.

  4. I would pay good money to see the look on her face when they fix her district.

  5. I think it would be a mistake to redistrict Lee out of her office.

    She is the perfect salesman for something I disagree with. We couldn’t pick a less slick or less persuasive democrat voice. There are people in the 4th ward who vote for her, though DRJ’s links give me a little hope for them.

    And she’s saying what’s in the hearts of so many ‘elites’. They think it’s contrary to our entire system of government to undo entitlements and bloated pensions. The whole point is to force us on a direction that gives them power over everything. The idea that we would wake up and turn this ship around is the scariest thing Sheila has ever heard of.
