Oh, Sheila!

July 19, 2011 by  

Oh, Sheila!

Few people could suggest with a straight face that the U.S. House of Representatives includes the best and brightest among us. In fact, most of the denizens of the august climes of the Personal Liberty Digest™ are already well aware that the members of the U.S. House of Representatives struggle to represent anyone but themselves.  That said, even among a group nearly as exclusive as the membership at Augusta National Golf Club, there’s always going to be one or two who manage to allow remarks to escape their flapping blowholes that are so breathtakingly stupid they make the usual jacklegs, grifters and string-pullers who stink up the Capitol look like Cincinattus by comparison.

Enter the lovely and talented Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas). The Hon. Ms. Jackson Lee has already locked up the title of “Most God-awful Boss in Congress.” Since she first took her seat in 1995, her staff has sported a higher turnover rate than the Crips. One staffer quit after Jackson-Lee threw a phone at him. And Ms. Jackson Lee evidently cut geography class (among others) at liberal demagoguery school: “Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.” For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that some of her defenders claim she meant to say “two Koreas,” in which case, she’s… still wrong.

Last week, Jackson Lee was back at it, raging from the people’s pulpit about her favorite topic: racism. Granted, ever since the beginning of the Presidential campaign of a little-known junior Senator from Illinois, liberals have endeavored to use the specious charge of racism to explain everything from President Obama’s lack of executive experience to his comprehensive incompetence as Commander in Chief. Normally, any criticism is immediately dismissed by the owners of the liberal movement as racist in nature.  But “normal” and “things done, said or even imagined by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee” rarely collide in the same universe, much less the same sentence. This is a woman who once accused The Hill of racism for printing an article noting she had asked NASA staffers if the Mars rover would visit the flag planted by Apollo astronauts… on the moon.

And in her logic-impaired tirade late last week, Representative Jackson Lee suggested that opposition to Obama’s economic “plan” is a result of… well… let’s let Sheila speak for herself (as if she requires any prompting): “I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness (toward) this president…Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully?  I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one.” Of course, she and her fellow Democrats treated President George W. Bush with the utmost in collegial regard. To be fair, Bush deserved some of the barbs he faced, given his profligate spending, harebrained schemes like No Child Left Behind, and his tendency to do things to the English language for which you pay extra in Vegas.

I often wonder if liberals, including Jackson Lee, consider the fact that by laying the exhausted race card on the table every time Obama slows for a political roadblock, they are essentially saying that Obama is nothing more than some helpless racial avatar, incapable of accomplishment — or, in Obama’s case — failure as anything other than a black man. Therefore, playing the race card in order to defend his every misstep is either an admission that he needs to be rescued with prosaic hokum, a revelation that liberals — bereft of meritorious ideas — have no other cards to play, or that they’re just plain silly.

Of course, Jackson Lee in particular resides in the latter category. Her amateur astronomical observations hardly represent her only ventures beyond her limited intellectual capacity. I would be willing to venture a guess that she’s not even aware that she’s calling Obama’s critics racist for agreeing with him: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.”  (Senator Barack Obama, D-Ill., March 20, 2006)

Of course, the whole thing could just be Marvin the Martian’s evil plot. Perhaps NASA can clue her in to the fact that the Illudium Q-36 is an equal opportunity Explosive Space Modulator.

    Dear Ben,

    I really liked your column.

    I was a young man in the 1970s when many Westerners dared to criticize the socialist policies of then Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (including when he nationalized scores of industries such as petroleum). We were told by the Liberal Elite in Ontario and Quebec that we opposed Mr. Trudeau because we where racist against Mr. Trudeau’s French Canadian heritage.

    That argument was repeated over and over helped Prime Minster Trudeau to stay in power for 15 years during which he destroyed the Canadian dollar while enacting many new laws that favored Quebec and all French Canadians.

    Best,

    John Myers

      Its an old ploy for sure.

    • Old Monkey

      Took a long time, but you and other good neighbors North got rid of the son of a batchelor didn’t you? I hope your neighbors South other than me get it.

      • denniso

        I’m so pleased to know after reading this article tht we have no racism in this country anymore,and that’s it’s not remotely possible that racists could be involved in attacking and smearing Obama because he’s the first Black man elected prez. I’m very glad to finally realize that no politicians could themselves be racist,or that any would play to and use the racists that used to exist in our fine country for soley political purposes. Thank you for the great enlightenment.

        • JC

          The Kenyan isn’t black, he’s a mulatto…and an imposter.
          Hope that helps. ;)

        • Jay

          I’m sure some are, denniso, but all? Give your your little tiny head a shake, and stop drinking your bath water!

        • http://Yahoo Leonard W. Giddens Jr.

          I am sorry too denniso. Sorry that there are people like you around. You can only be one of two things, an African American or an African American handler. This president is the sorriest excuse of a man, and would not make a president of the out dated NAACP. When are you going to stop standing behind crooks and incompetents just because they nare of color? It is the dumbest thing one can imagine. No other race in the world does it. The man doesn’t give a rat’s A33 about you are any other AA. His concern is for muslims,mexicans, unions,and gays. This man just made sure the migrant workers get heath care paid for by legal Americans. Tel us now, what has the first black president as you love to call him, done for you lately except feed you the bull you so love to hear? And yooou have the nerve to call some one ignorant? Don’t bother to pull the race card on me. I am the sell out that was never in. You no, the one that thinks for himself, and listen to more than one view.

  • FreedomFighter

    You are so wrong Shiela:

    “How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”–Ronald Reagan

    Obama is a Marxist in the process of destroying America with socialist Marxist agenda, he earned my disrespect through his actions, inaction, and lack of leadership.

    To threaten the eldery and our military men an women by saying he cannot garauntee paychecks is the act of a coward and a political terrorist.

    “Terrorism is the preferred weapon of weak and evil men.”–Ronald Reagan

    Im old enough to have seen greatness, Obama is not it, he is just an old style Chicago thug politician and a communist.

      This is all a set up from the left. They want to start up riots. Get people to turn against each other.
      Best thing to do is to not bite into the apple.don’t play their game just walk away.
      Trust me they have a game plan in playing the racist card so you have to be in control of your own feelings in this matter.
      Don’t let the devil take us down.
      Nothing gets to them more than not getting any reaction from you on this subject. So put them on mute and continue on with business as if they never said a word.

      • Kate 8

        Barbara – I would go one step further and say that Obama was chosen precisely BECAUSE he is black, for the purpose of playing the race card when anyone speaks out against him.

        It’s just more progressive/communist strategy to marginalize and silence the opposition, as they knew there would be great opposition to their agenda. And it has succeeded in, if not convincing people, at least putting fear into anyone (especially in office) who might otherwise have spoken up.

        With politics today, especially on the Left, the rule is ‘anything goes’ when it comes to outrageous rhetoric. We have weak, spineless and utterly dishonest flotsum sitting in our Congressional halls (and WH). It’s hard to say if they are really stupid or just focused on their evil plan and following it to the letter, doing exactly what they went to DC to do.

        • Christin

          Kate8,

          That’s why (they won’t and) we can’t impeach this poser for his unConstitutional actions or take this poser to court over his illegal presence in the WH, because it will cause a riotous Black uprising… one which no one could tame down… the African-American crowd just wouldn’t believe the truth that he is a poser… he is their hero and dream that they too can rise to the top… but they only need to see that in themselves as an intelligent good person, not follow a bad half black bisexual guy.

          There are other great Conservative, Constitutional, Christian Black Proud American that are intelligent and well spoken and could do a much better job being the president than this imperial, narcissistic, dictator one.

          • Kate 8

            Christin – Especially when we have those like Sheila who have risen in ranks by building on racism and class-envy, and pander to a crowd who has bought the communist lie and care only about getting “their share” of the promised wealth redistribution.

            You are right. There are those like Alan Keyes who are fine Constitutional patriots, and are far more qualified to lead than our current imposter in chief. But their own won’t back them because they are off the reservation.

            BTW, my conservative Congressman has come out and declared Obama “eligable”. He’s always run away from the issue. And he’s just lost my vote next time.

          • Christin

            Kate8,
            Thanks for sharing your views.

            The Socialist/Communist crowd has NOTHING of substance to run on…
            What are they going to say???????

            We, Leftist liberal/Progressives, are for:

            * stealing your wealth and redistributing it to foreign countries…
            * taking away your 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech and Religion…
            * taking away your 2nd Amendment Right to Bare Arms against tyranny..
            * getting you dependent on the government dole so we can own you…
            * Regulating your American businesses to death so they will leave and make other countries prosper…
            * spending and printing money to inflate the dollar until we collapse the American currency…
            * writing so many laws you break them and we can throw you in jail whenever we need to get you out of the way…
            * controlling the masses and enslaving them to do as we please…
            * starting false flags to enrage the public to demanding we take action against other nations and go to war…
            * culling the population through eugenics, starvation, and disease war fare..

            Oh, and we are using RACISM to shut you crackers up and to divide and conquer the populations and tick you all off at each other… and we are good at it… we don’t even really care about our own as we use everybody… we only care that We are the ‘Elites’ and above the laws and what’s coming.

            No way… no how, would any person of any race in our population vote for ANY of them EVER if they knew the TRUTH…

        • JeffH

          Kate8, I tend to agree with you and think you are much more right than wrong as to why Obama was “chosen”.

          • Jana

            Kate8,
            I also am beginning to see more and more how very right you are.
            Keep up the good work.

          • Kate 8

            Thanks, JeffH and Jana. I feel the same about you both.

        • Lost in Paradise

          I think Obama is there because of the black and muslim community. I think they contributed heavily to his campaign and will again. I think most blacks would like to re-invent America. They also like the race card, and of course it is always everyone elses fault with them.

          • Dana

            I totally agree with you. Ive had blacks tell me that slavery was my fault. WTH that was 150 years ago GET OVER IT!!!!!! When i bring up the fact that most crimes in my area are committed by blacks, thats my fault too cause I have a job that a black man should have. Well not my fault that he is a felon and cant add 2+2

            My problem with Obama isn’t that he’s black. It’s that he’s just another white liberal. (and a communist)

            Amen brother!!Pity race card in play is way too late for this halfrican!! Let HIM own it that he is a failed President no matter what color!

Oh wait they are too busy collecting their free checks of entitlements..

      • Russ Matar

        Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. Action must be taken to resove the problem by voicing our concerns to our representitives as directly as passible so our voice can not be ignored.

        • Jana

          Russ M,
          You are so right. We need to quit being laid back and get our feelings out to our Reps. We all have computers and they all have email addresses.
          We need to bombard them, after all they are supposed to be working for us.

        • Joyce from Loris

          Russ Mater, you would be amazed at how many of us HAVE been emailing, snail mailing and calling our representatives, OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Millions of us started doing this practically the day after Obama was sworn in. You see, just because we write, email or call, does not mean they will consider your opinion when it comes time to vote. They don’t CARE what we, the tax paying voters, think. They are ALL concerned about one thing, and one thing only. Re-election. Period!

      • Patti

        I believe this ‘race card’ behavior continues because many ‘Whites’ don’t like/want confrontation and ‘United WE Stand’ Hispanics/Blacks are thriving, while the ‘Divided WE Fall’ Whites are losing any same benefits. Until Whites Stand Together, Our Position will continue to decline.

        In my college sociology class, militant Blacks said that Whites are Racist. I declared that it is truly ‘Classism’ not Racism in every society and clearly seen with India’s Untouchables, then I advised that the White Irish were treated sometimes as badly or worse than Blacks, so where’s the racism?

        ‘Slavery’: is a cultural practice dating back to the beginning of time/Genesis, even happens in the animal kingdoms, and continues today in many cultures, especially for women & children.

        To the Illegals that say Whites wouldn’t work their jobs, I say to them that the jobs were done by white Americans long before they arrived illegally. The Irish took the jobs that no one wanted & made them into wonderful careers so many enjoy today (Police, Fire, Sanitation, etc.) and didn’t stay home on welfare looking for a hand out. Enough is Enough with these Race/Affirmative Action goodies too as the ‘injured parties’ are no longer alive. I have stopped ‘feeling sorry’ for Black people as it truly keeps them down, but they don’t realizie it.

        Here’s an Irony…The HealthCare Bill includes an Education Bill that gives 90% of the ‘previously competitive college grants’ to the Hispanics while the Blacks & Whites must split the remaining 10%.

        • Jana

          Patti,
          Thank you for saying that the white Irish were at one time treated as bad or worse than the blacks, because it was oh so true.
          However the white Irish pulled themselves up by their boot straps and moved forward. They didn’t stay down. There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for any race to stay down except that they do it to themselves.

          Great post Patti.

          • Kate8

            Patti – I agree with Jana. You make some great points.

            This race issue is nothing but another tool for the communist Left to futher their aims. And it’s insulting to all of the races.

        • Christin

          Patti,
          Great post.

          I thought the Blacks were going to get more of the college grants as obama was trying to get many of them in the physicians field to pick up some of the slack with the additional people on the Health [insurance] bill passing…

    • gypsy

      Well Said John Meyers. Im sad to say she is from Texas but maybe we will get lucky and she will move.

      • Alice

        It has nothing to do with luck. Why not start a movement to get her out voted of office? Surely there people in Texas with more brains than she displays.

        • Christin

          Alice,

          Sheila Lee Jackson lords over Houston, the fourth largest city in our country, like a dark cloud and it is full of inner city blacks, and illegal Mexicans and lower-middle class Hispanics, even many liberal Jews who walk on Sundays as is their way, inner city liberal gays and many wealthy and middle class white folks…

          And then of course there is that illegal thing called “gerrymandering” of districts which keep a lot of far leftist liberals in office, too.

          I wish someone with a great spirit for the Constitution could show compassion for all these groups and unite them all under the American Banner of Freedom and Free Markets (The American Dream)…

          Sheila Lee has been proven to have VOTER FRAUD (5000) in her district, be a self professed SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST, and lied to the public, and STAGED a FAKE doctor young black woman claiming she was in favor of (gov rationed) ‘obamacare’ at a televised Town Hall Meeting when in fact she was NOT a physician at all.

          There is NOTHING Honorable about her… she is ‘God awful’ alright.
          (though there is nothing awful about God)

          Good job, Ben Crystal… keep exposing the BAD Congressional candidates from ALL the states so people can be informed and pass the info on.

          • meteorlady

            Houston continues to be an embarrassment to the rest of Texas. Even as long ago as 35 years they had massive crime and it was unsafe, even in daylight, to walk the streets alone. It is now packed with left over welfare people from New Orleans and illegals (it’s a sanctuary city). The people are to uneducated to even vote someone with any intelligence into office.

          • eddie47d

            Meteorlady; Then Christians are dropping the ball in helping the downtrodden and turn a blind eye to their plight. It’s easy to talk about other people but what are you personally doing to help their situation. Does your church provide shelter for the homeless,food for the wanting,job counseling for those in need.Maybe even birth control so they can get on with their lives and off of welfare. I keep hearing that the Church is the one to take care of those in need of help and the government should butt out. I would say religious folks are also falling flat on their faces. Decades ago the church would help the poor and brought them into their flock.(I’ll scratch your back and then you can help us grow). Now they ignore the poor and dump them on the government. Private business needs to find a way to get jobs into the cities,(since you don’t want government providing jobs).Private educators need to recruit inner city kids (since you don’t want the government doing it)Saying the church or private enterprise will solve America’s problems when that isn’t happening gets about as old as saying the government will solve everything.

          • Jana

            eddie,
            I would ask what are YOU personally doing to help their situation?
            You asked if our church was providing shelter and food for the homeless, actually the government has been shutting down these churches with new laws and regulations that they impose. Government came in and flatly stated, WE ARE TAKING OVER, CHURCHES GET OUT OF OUR WAY!

            You stated********” Private business needs to find a way to get jobs into the cities,(since you don’t want government providing jobs).”**********
            Again, the government is the one stifling the creation of jobs.

            Lets see YOU get out there and do something and show us how its done, instead of just tearing Christians down.

            You CLAIM to be a Christian. What kind of Christian are you anyway? You CLAIM one thing and talk another way- – -????

          • Edward Chandler

            Mrs. Lee is a disgrace to her race,Texas should be ashamed of her
            NMo one is ahainst OBAMA BECAUSE HE IS BLACK it is because he is a MUSLIM HELL BENT ON DESTROYING OUR AMERICA. He isn’t doing it little by little he is doing it by leaps and bounds. He is the worst thing that has ever happened to our America.

          • eddie47d

            Don’t worry Jana I do help others and give to plenty of organizations that give people a hand up. It’s too easy of a cop out for Christians or private businesses to lay it back on the government. Either you are a willing participant in helping others or you are not.

            Eddie: Don’t worry Jana I do help others and give to plenty of organizations that give people a hand up. It’s too easy of a cop out for Christians or private businesses to lay it back on the government. Either you are a willing participant in helping others or you are not.

            Jay: Lay it back on the government? Last I checked eddie, the government is incapable of generating any wealth, except of course, taxes! So in essence, all tax-payers are willing participants, and enablers of our government’s GREAT generosity!

        • Patti

          How about voting them ALL out of office & vote in non-dem or non-rep novices who don’t know how to rip us off? They can’t do any worse job than is being done now.

    • Penny R. Freeman

      Great reply Freedom Fighter! Now to give the mundane media a clue that they have totally lost the American people thanks to their bias brought on because of Soros’s money under the table. Who says a billionaire who’s already destroyed more than one economy can’t destroy another with losts of money and the greed of media assistants? What does Obama have going for him? A smile that makes you want to slap him, a good speech presentation if he has the help of a teleprompter, lots of money from liberal nut jobs ( or as my son puts it libtards), and blatantly anti-Americans who’ve never once shown shame or remorse for their past actions against this country. Why isn’t he already on trial for treason? Because this has been a grand scheme in the works for years. All it took to implement it was a sickening smurk and people who didn’t dare to vote against Obama because they feared the word “racist.” Totally agree with the one who stated a lot of Bush’s ideas were not exactly great. No child left behind is one of the biggest failures outside of all the bailouts and stimulus ideas I’ve ever seen. Now teachers and school administrators spend more time trying to get students prepared to pass tests so the schools can continue to get federal funds than they do actually teaching. I know that because my daughter teaches in a very poverty stricken area. Why do our children not learn? Because our government and the libtards in Hollywood have successfully helped to destroy the idea of family and morals. Why are we just now awakening to the fact that we have let corruption grow out of control in our federal governement for so many years? Because it was nice to reap the benefits of all those “earmarks” attached to bills passed through Congress. Nobody seemed to question that issue when they or their community benfitted from it. Well folks, now it’s time to pay the piper and no one wants to be the one to force the ax to fall. But a smirking liar and his anti-American accomplices have finally made us all realize this kind of outrageous party can’t go on forever. Let’s get the liar-in-chief thrown out on his a** and put a new Congress and president in. And let’s be sure to remind them daily that they took an oath and hold their feet to the fire if they don’t abide by it. We can whine and point fingers and place blame on others all we want, but the sad truth is we have no one to blame but ourselves for not being diligent as our founders had hoped in the preservation of our freedom and of this great republic. We let corrupt politicians with our assistance dig our grave, now to find a way to crawl back out of it!

      • John

        Penny, you are right, the voter’s screwed up, now let’s hope there are still enough real Americans to correct the problem. Your solution is the right one. I hope the socialist/communist/ democrats/ move to another country that they can destroy, and leave us alone.

AMERICA, COME TOGETHER AND DEFEAT THE MAN REGARDLESS OF YOUR BELIEF — YOU CAN ALWAYS VOTE IN ’16 YOUR WAY AND GET BACK TO A TWO PARTY SYSTEM THAT THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE SOCIALISM.

    Why is it if you disagree with Obama bin Laden you are a racist? I don’t agree with his policies because they are socialist, unconstitutional, and just plain crazy in the head. I really hope, OMG – one of those words used in the campaign of Obama bin Laden, that the American people wake up and vote responsibly. I have nothing against the pretender being a mulato, but if he is who he says he is, then prove it with his real birth certificate, SSN, and passport. I agree with you Freedom Fighter about who he really is. Let’s get this country back to the ways of our Christian founding. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Bear

      Samurai, You and Freedom Fighter have it right. Our disdain of Obama is not about his skin pigmentation whatsoever. It IS totally about who and what he represents………..that NOT being anything remotely representing a free people. As for this Shiela Jackson Lee, she has painted herself as yet another of those black individuals who is DEFINITELY racist. BTW, isn’t she the one who asked if the Mars rover was going to be able to take pictures of the flag that Armstrong planted when he was there????? We need more like her somewhere else. As long as we have the Progressive Liberals keeping things stirred up with the blacks, we’re going to have the black community supporting individuals like Obama out of spite. We need to see that their tactics are designed to keep Americans of all races separated at their roots. Americans are Americans. They are NOT African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Brazilian Americans, Norweigan Americans, Argentin Americans or anything else. They are simply AMERICANS! People who are proud and honored to be living in this country. If you, as and individual do not want to be plainly and simply “an American”, then you have fallen into the progressive liberal’s trap and way of thinking. The very foundation of this country is cemented by peoples of all races from every corner of the globe and it is that foundation that Obama and his people are attacking at every opportunity when they seek to divide us racially.

        Very well said Bear, thank you. It seems as if there are some who aim to stir up class warfare. Others who want to perpetuate the quicksand of entitlements for everyone paid for by the “rich”, bla bla. How about Personal Responsibility”? “if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.” How about “workfare”, instead of watchin your bigscreen and waiting for your unemployement checks. Oh I’m sorry, surely these comments are racist too.

    Obviously, something is amiss between Jackson’s ears. The world does NOT need pc Nazis who think their every whim must be indulged.
    She has to be told that her routine is stale and that she is expendable (she just isn’t bright enough to understand simple things). If she’s the worst boss in Congress, then it’s up to the good people in Texas to dump her and usher in someone who has a nickel’s worth of common sense. Even Rev. Wright has nothing on that woman.
    People like Jackson [posers who try to pass for functional humans] have no place in politics. She should be working for Gore. He’s learned that when your elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top floor, you try to stay in the shadows.
    I find it both hilarious and tragic that any American can have a use for Hitlerian psychology in politics. Jackson, and a host of worthless twits in Washington, will never understand what they’re doing to America. Hitler had his own race card, and I have no doubt that he would find the idea of Jackson doing his bidding as more than ironic.
    But then, Jackson just can’t get some things into her head. She had to be elected to prove that certain people can be dumber than we thought. Jackson is a one-trick pony, and it’s time for her traveling circus to be seen for what it is. Texas, make America a better place. DUMP Jackson.

      TERM LIMITS would prevent this ignorant fool to continue on the path of super supidity at the taxpayers expense. Julia Carson represented from her death bed in Indianapolis till she could get her grandson elected who happens to be a devoute MUSLIM. I’m not promoting racism but two terms is long enough for any politician, EVER.

      • Jeff

        We talk about Term Limits, but who would install it? The Supreme Court? A constitutional amendment? Something has to be done to get rid of the idiots. I am in her district so I know first hand how she must go.

        • meteorlady

          Term limits are really not the answer. The liberals can find just as many as dumb as her to run. We need EQUAL representation for all candidates. The news media needs to keep their political opinions to the opinion pages and not sell them as news STORIES. We need to get rid of lobbyists and stop redistricting and adding new representatives for added populations. Cut each state down to 4 house and 2 senate.

      • Average Joe

        slapjack,

        My only problem with Term Limits, is that is a double edged sword. Term limits would insure that they are only in office for a specific amount of time, but it also insures that they will attempt to fast track their agendas once they arrive in DC.
        Instead of term limits, I suggest that every Bill that they want to pass be done as a single stand alone Bill (in other words, no add on riders etc.)stating the purpose of the Bill,where it gets its’ Constitutional authority and written in plain English… and be no more than 5 pages long. Each Bill should be brought to the floor and subjected to a simple up or down vote (no more of this voting “present” BS from our Reps…we want to know where you stand on the issue…period).If this causes a backlog of Bills, so be it….the less bills passed, the better off the nation is as a whole.

        • Christin

          Average Joe,

          Very good points.

          Do you know when Congress ever added the vote of ‘present’ to conceal their position on the topic (so they could win another election to congress) from the revealing ‘yea’ or ‘nay’ vote???

          • Average Joe

            I am not sure when the practice began, but I went back as far as 1935 and the Social Security vote…and they were doing it then. I would imagine it goes back much farther though.

    • Ellen

      Unfortunately, blacks are the biggest racists in our country and will continue to vote for any black who runs for office simply because they are black. It can be common knowledge that the person is corrupt, but they’ll vote for him/her anyway. Look at Marion Barry in DC, Charlie Rangel, etc. Over 90% of blacks voted for Obama – because he’s black. He has proven to be a horrible president and corrupt man, but he’ll get 90% of the black vote in 2012 anyway. I’m tired of whites being called racist when we are not the ones causing the problems for blacks. We’ve given blacks every opportunity to improve their lives and they are worse off now than they were 30 years ago. Yet, they continue to blame whites. We played no part of what our ancestors did and have done everything to try to make up for it, yet blacks still blame us.

      • Kate 8

        Ellen – I think the whole flak about whites being racist has just been another part of the communist strategy. The truth is that EVERY race has held slaves, and many of them far more barbaric than what we had in America. In fact, many still do.

        African tribes enslaved each other. In fact, Africans were largely responsible for rounding up people to sell to the slave traders. And look at the Islamics…they captured whites (and whoever they could) from ships and conquest and kept them as slaves. White skin was very prized among the Islamic slaveholders. Still is. But do these people get hammered for it? NO! They get an absolute pass. (Why is that? Because they are perceived as not knowing any better, and are, therefore, excused?)

        Another truth is that whites have been the most accepting of OTWs. What other nations are as tolerant of other races blending with their own? Heck, some won’t even tolerate other religions, even among their own race.

        Slavery has gone on since man came about, yet only whites are throttled with it. And it is the white nations which abolished it. If the truth be seen, we are ALL slaves now, to the elite banksters. And they plan to make it much, much worse for us.

        • Christin

          Kate8,

          Great points.

          What is ‘OTW’?

          • Kate8

            Christin – “other than white”.

      • Brad

        Ellen,

        I must disagree with you, not all blacks vote for a black politicians. I live in SoMD and my representative is Steny Hoyer (D) and white, last Novemeber Charles Lollar (R) and black ran against him for the fifth congression district. Ellen after all votes had been tallied it took only one county to re-elect Steny Hoyer back to his seat in the house and playing second fiddle to Nancy Pelosi. Yes that’s right Anne Arundel county accounted for 81% of the vote to Steny Hoyer which gave him approximately 90K votes and Charles Lollar account for 77k votes over all five counties. Hands down the majority of blacks will vote Democrat and only Democrat no matter if he/she is black, white or whatever race.

        • Joyce from Loris

          You are right. Look at the way the black race reacts to people like Herman Cain, Allan Keyes and West. They call them “Uncle Tom”, just because they are conservative, self made men. I have all the admiration in the world for all of them, and you would think the black race would as well. Obama used the race card (affirmative action) to get into college, and used grant money to pay for it. The blacks love that.

    • meteorlady

      She’s black and her district is Houston (black and Mexican). The people that continue to vote for her have a code of sticking together even if that person is dumber than a board. She will continue to get re-elected because most of her “constituents” aren’t educated enough to even read little loan check her voting record of question what she has done positive for them.

      • eddie47d

        Good grief meteorlady you are becoming a one woman thug with your biased statements. “blacks and Mexicans stick together”. Old Italian neighborhoods use to stick together same with Scandinavian,German,Chinese,Irish,Protestant,Catholic and right on down the line. You voted for whoever stood up for your neighborhood,beliefs,culture. How soon we forget the way things were. The big difference is that we had jobs back then and could work our way out of the old neighborhood if we wanted too. Some inner city blacks have older housing,a less than quality education and less job opportunity. No… pouring more money into the situation might not solve a thing. It comes down to acceptance and not the “I love a black singer or movie star” kind of acceptance. Then ignore the real failings of our inner cities. How do you think the Louis Farrakhan’s get a strangle hold on minorities of any color. They form their own schools,religion and offer jobs. It also brainwashes their followers into a much different lifestyle which you also disapprove of. If you want these fellow Americans to be hard working,loyal to your beliefs,feel patriotic and truly enjoy equality then invite them into your church,neighborhood,civic organizations or whatever it takes.Then you might get them to drift over to your side or do you really want that?

      • Jay

        If you ask me, meteorlady, it is the illustrious and Hon. Ms. Jackson Lee that is the racist, and somewhat ignorant. Her accusation, that all who disagree, or criticize Obama, do so because of his skin color, presupposes, that all who do, are all white-Americans. What a racist nut-bar!

    • Warrior

      I rather she be replaced with a blow up doll.

    Evil is Evil no matter what color it is. Bad is Bad no matter what color it is.

    This Dingy is interwoven with total and utter stupidity let alone is obviously not qualified to float soap bars in a baby pool and yet she is in CONGRESS making laws! HELLOoooooooooooo!

    That begs the question who in their right mind elected her again?
    And why have they done so how many times now? HellOoooooo.

    There really is no question why this nation is as messed up as it is when you look at what we allow to be our advocates.
    Really Its kind of like letting your dog make your lunch from what they found in the cat box, you eat it day after day, year after year and think it taste good! HELLOoooooooooooo.

    • DanB

      I think there is some truth to what has been said here, and not just your comment. Although I do not agree with everything, and I think that some are just seeing unnecessary conspiracies. Why are the conspiracies unnecessary? Because we the American people have become evil. How else can we have not seen what evil we put into office to represent us unless we have become no better than those we elect (a majority voted in our president and Congress–while some individuals are good Congress as a whole seems no better and perhaps worse than the executive branch)? I am inclined to believe that America is ripe for destruction, that the only reason we have not been destroyed as a nation is because there is enough of us that do care whether we follow God’s commandments as individuals that the nation is spared. But what happens when we die and the nation has taken away our right to teach our children religious principles of right and wrong? What happens when the righteous are extinguished from this nation? That is why I feel I must stand up for The Constitution, because we have forgotten. I do not want to extinguish my personal flame of freedom because I chose to ignore the evil we’ve become as a nation. We assume that love of money only destroys the rich because our classrooms tell us so. We ignore that even the poor can be destroyed by the love of money that they don’t have. That is why creating a welfare state grants tyrants so much power over their people.

      • Kate 8

        DanB – So true, and well said.

      • TIME

        Dan,

        Thats really a well done posting. I fully agree its standards we hold ourselfs to that make us who we are. I have never let the money go to my head. We give back a lot and have done so for over twenty five years now.

        Note; politicians never give back they just “TAKE & TAKE and TAKE!”
        They are pure EVIL in many cases.

        Peace & Love

    • Carlucci

      My mom is in her district, which was gerrymandered, like Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Fran. Most of SJL’s voters are from the poor districts (ghettos). That is why she keeps getting re-elected. When she has to meet with her gerrymandered (white) district, she ignores the upper class whites at the meeting and stays on her cell phone most of the time. This was televised on our local news channels a few years ago.

      My dad absolutely hated her. He called her “old gorilla face”, among other names that I cannot repeat on this blog.

  • John

    It requires stupid people to keep re electing a stupid official.

    • Jeff

      NO, I vote against her every time, but her district is 80% Black and 10% White. The only people to run against her as Republicans or Libertarians are crackpots.

      • Push comes to shove

        Hey, lets not forget the redistricting, done by demographics (race) to make sure people of color are equally represented (Affirmative action). Here in Dallas the minorities are more well represented than white (actually i think in the City of Dallas whites have either become a minority or on equal grounds, but not equally represented) and it has become shambles rife with corruption as the same old dummies get elected over and over. John Wiley Price is just the latest example.
        That is why i moved out of Dallas into Lewisville, but now there are investigations of corruption into thier city council. You just can’t get away from it when you live near a Big city.

      • meteorlady

        Redistricting needs to be outlawed. It’s a means for a political party to capture most of the votes. THE ENTIRE STATE SHOULD VOTE…..

  • Mark

    She like Obama are a disgrace.

  • Richard Barrow

    I could go into a big discussion about this lady and many of her friends in the Black Caucus in the Congress. But I won’t

    And yes, a racist is a racist,,,black or white.

    • http://Windows7 Ellen

      If we are all racists how did she get elected? It must have taken some voters who were not black — just stupid. No wonder our country is such a mess right now — this is the kind of jackass we have put in our ruling bodies.

      • Bob

        I suspect that she comes from a district that is primarily black and blacks always vote skin color – (that is a verifiable fact little eddie).

        • Kate 8

          The very fact of a “black caucus” is racist.

          We aren’t allowed a “white caucus”. Only non-whites can have caucuses.

          How do you get more racist than this?

  • Bob

    The only reason this prime example of lieberal womanhood is even given any notice is that the media doesn’t want to appear racist by ignoring her mindless, lieberal ranting. It is time to ignore the cries of “rascim” from these scum and it is high time to point out that it is not racist to criticize a scumbag (whose skin happens to be black) for being a scumbag. I don’t even consider maobama to be a black man, I consider him to be low-life white-trash like his mother.

    • http://WeThePeople Jean

      Oh so true – just let her open her mouth – and print word for word what comes out. She may be able to read – but like so many people regardless of race – she can not comprehend let alone follow logic. She is what she is. Just like O’Bummer. A sows ear wanting to be a silk purse.

          • Kate8

            eddie – We will never be able to deal with the race issue if it is always a taboo subject. We need more talk, HONEST discussion, without having to feel like we’re scum for noticing that there IS a problem.

            And it’s liberals like you who use it as a battering ram, in order to control the issue and the debate, insuring that there IS no debate.

            It seems that only whites are fair game. ANYTHING can be said about a white. But non-whites are protected BY LAW, and that is discrimination. Equal should be equal, not some are more equal than others.

            There’s no such thing as a hate crime against a white (unless he’s GLBTwhatever), even if it IS a hate crime. Only whites can commit hate crimes.

            eddie, 20 – 1 would be a moral victory for you but unlike you I prefer to be as accurate and forthright as can be rather than just making wildly blind and factless statements without accuracy or back-up.

            eddie – SOME racism has always existed among all people. Today, it’s just a political tool, and it’s only called racism when it’s a white doing it.

            And, BTW, while whites are continually chastised for it and heaped with guilt for deeds long past, your camp breeds and encourages racism AGAINST whites, convincing every OTW that they are the victims of whites and that their lives would be much better were it not for the oppression of whites.

            Well, for that matter, our lives were much better before we got overrun with the third world.

        By Patrick J. Buchanan

        Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America .. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the silent majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

        First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

        Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the black American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
        We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude?

        Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona, Johnstown , and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids ? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for black Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the black American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

        Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

        As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

        Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

        We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

        Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear !

        OK will you pass it on ?

        YES. I did but will you?

        Because I’m for a better America.

        • Kate8

          Average Joe – Good post.

          You are right. We need to throw off the shackles of PC (which holds us in slavery to the Left) and face this issue head-on. Instead, though, eveyone runs from it.

          I, for one, and tired of being kept silent about what’s really going on for fear of being called names. PC is not improving the situation. It is, instead, turning the tide of racism against whites, and OTWs are quickly learning that it is okay.

          This is more divide and conquer. If we could all but see this, maybe we could stand up to the real culprits in our midst.

    Shejack is a socialis liberal whinner who can only stay in office as long as she can keep the racial tension up in her district. She has made an ass of herself on so many ocassion that it is a wonder that
    she is still in office. But you have to give her credit she has
    brainwashed her voters to where they will automatically voted for her
    even though they know she is not capable nor qualified to walk and talk at the same time. They vote for her for one reason and one reason only, the color of her skin is her only reason to be in office since she panders to the lowest common demoniator the race card.

      Wouldn’t this list serve as a collection of traitors to the US Constitution? I say round them up and impeach them all at once…immediately. Our US Constitution has no provision for socialists nor communism. These ‘signers’ are clearly traitors to our Nation. We deserve better; and if we don’t disengage them, we deserve what we get in our inaction and ambivalence.

        Not only to the person I am replying to but to every post I read concerning Honorable Sheila Lee of the great state of Texas, you all fail to see things as they are, I suppose the old saying about ignorance is blissful, then most of you with your unleveled thinking must be sitting on cloud nine. Most Anglo-Saxons do not seem to be able to recognize bigotry, in fact, most truly seems to think they are the most fair minded people on this planet. The truth of the matter is, most of us are bias in one way or another, sometime, in fact, more often than not it has to do with our up-bringing and the people that we associate with (birds of a feather, flock together). In final, just because someone see things differently does not mean they are either this or that (referring to most of the commenter s about Hon. Lee and the President). A lot of your commenter s remind me of the late Republican Senator Joseph McCarthy, comparing the President with an affinity toward communism, subversion and the like, these things are nothing more than scare tactics aimed at the uninformed.

        • mickey

          Maybe you would like to read the beginning of socialism within the dem party and the goals to take it over. We have about 25% of the House and nearly all of the Black Caucus, plus Pelosi, who are proud card bearing members of the Democratic Socialist of America (DSA). DSA is not the normal dem party. Pelosi brags she got rid of the blue dogs in the last election.

        • Ray

          It is no different today than it was yesterday in that serious minded people automatically react to leadership that is leading them down the wrong path. They did with Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon and George Bush Sr and Jr, Lyndon Baines Johnson to name a few whose policies were not in the best interest of our nation. Some of these people were nice people just wrong, as it is in the case of this president.
          If you are a Progressive Liberal then he is doing exactly what you want, otherwise he is seen as a threat to the freedoms that this nation has provided since it’s inception.

        • Kate 8

          TB – Thanks for the post. Whites are, generally, much more fair-minded than given credit for. Just look at how many whites have fought tirelessly for the plight of others, especially those of color.

          How many OTWs do you suppose will be standing up for whites soon? Because while whites are restrained from speaking truth by PC, OTWs are loudly proclaiming their intent to eliminate “whitey” and take over. A white person would be readily arrested for similar rhetoric.

          Of course, it is the largely-white PTB who are fanning the flames of racism among OTW toward whites.

        • John

          TB Much, Why class at all?? Most Anglo Saxons reside in a different country. I am an American. who has been inundated by raciest charges most of my life. I am caucasian/white. I have yet to figure out why.I have never treated anyone poorly because of the color of thier skin, or because of thier language is different, or because of wherever they came from. I have been known to treat an individual with distain, no matter who thier parents are. Obama is bad. any party that has as it’s platform a desire to take away ANY right of the billof rights, or even a state right such as a right to work law is evil. There is no other way for a true American.

          • http://tbmuch-inthenameofcommonsense.blogspot.com TB Much

            John, you have said a lot there and if you are correct, then I would side with you, however, I do not believe you can substantiate a third of the things you alleged in your post of what the President is making an attempt to do. We always must check and re-check the things that we read or hear others say. It has always been my sentiment that there are people of all kinds of persuasions from both of the major political parties and out of all races, some have the intentions of doing good while others only desire is to manipulate the masses.

          • Pat

            I am white, grew up in a family that taught me to see the color of a person’s character, not their skin. I have lived by this for my lifetime, but I guess I am still racist because I see Obama’s, Eric Holder’s and Sheila Jackson-Lee’s CHARACTERS as black! I have also known a lot of white people with black characters, and black people with white characters! Figure that one out….

      I tried to post this once before but got a server error. Anyway, it is all over the internet, including wiki, http://keywiki.org/index.php/Congressional_Progressive_Caucus

      There are 2 Americas, one however is imprisoned in the ghetto by its own people and the other is the rest of us.

    • George

      While your list does show that there are many in Congress who are committed to a philosophy alien to the Constitutional provisions, they need to update that list since it contains some who are no longer members of Congress. Just one to illustrate: Abercrombie is no longer a Representative from HI as he is now the governor of the state.

    To Everyone:
    What Shiela Jackson said was outrageous, infantile, along with ridiculous. This is a sign of an immature mind. In addition, it’s
    a form of Mccarthyism. However, i don’t see a viable alternative plan from the opposition. Thus, they should be concentrating on that to be able to counter this bizarre claim. Thanks!!

    • home boy

      maybe you should take a look at the neighbor hood she comes from and then you would know why she has no opposition.

  • Master Gunny

    Reading the rants of the likes of Ms. Jackson makes one wonder if there is any hope for democracy. In the military one takes a battery of tests to determine apptitude, intelligence, and special abilities. The assignment system then attempts (admittedly with spotty effectiveness) to match an individual with a military occupational specialty that best taps a persons innate skills and intellect.

    Where in the wide world of sports do we see anything similar anywhere else in government? We get the likes of the Ms. Jackson in the House, Rumsfield as SECDEF, and a community organizer as CinC. What qualified any of these individuals to hold the grave responsibilities upon which the fate of our nation depends? The vetting process of the political parties seems to orbit only around one factor; can we get the bum elected?

    I would never have trusted one of my subordinates with a block of C-4 without personally insuring that he understood everything necessary to keep him from blowing himself up. Who trains other government officials in the art of governing or running something as complicated as the Defense Department? As an example when Rumsfield told the Joint Chiefs that additional troops were not be required in Iraq after the fall of Saddam upon what basis did he make that determination? How did this political hack determine the exact opposite of the men who had spent all of their adult lives learning the military arts?

    The cases of sophmoric decisions made by public officials would fill entire libraries, and are so well known, that I’ll dispense with other examples but the question remains: how do we select, train, groom, and monitor public officials and weed out the incompetents?

    The cry from my soapbox is the recall election. Force politcians to spend almost as much time trying to stay in office as winning the office. Every time a lie is detected start a petition drive, get people to voice their displeasure in a way that has a knife in it’s hand rather then mere rhetoric. When a politician in Foggy Bottom sees the home folks signing page after page or recall petitions he will get the message; you are expendible, you can be replaced, you cannot do anything you want, you will be held accountable now, not just at the next election. Politicians gamble that the public will forget their misdeeds by the next election but recall elections will deprive them, once and for all, of that illusion. We, the people, have rights and the petition is one of them. It’s time to exercise that right.

  • James J. Kirksey

    Shella Jackson Lee is a member of the Democratic Socialist of America, Black Cacus and other subversive organizations that plan the demise of our Constitutional government to promote their Marxist agenda. This was part of their long range plan to divide the country racailly and other ways in order usurp authority. They should be tried for treason and punished accordingly.

Now on the other hand You and this site bring up the racism of the New Black Panthers(which they are)but they only have 15 members and little clout.

  • paintbrushbright

    Sheila Jackson is the Manney Mandela of Texas and could possibly be the leader of the Black Klan. How she got to be elected will remain a mystery and her use of racism is really a front to cover up her low IQ. Her big mouth is the only thing that puts her in the spotlight. I am sure my comments and the topic article would be racism according to Sheila. Let’s hope the voters in her district vote out this embarrassment to the Afro American people.

TESTING AS WELL, WITH A MINIMUM REQUIREMENT SCORE OF 90 OR ABOVE TO RUN FOR OFFICE. THAT SHOULD EFFECTIVELY MAKE SURE COMMON SENSE PREVAILS & “LIBERALISM” BECOMES A THING OF THE PAST. ALSO, ANYONE ON ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE FOR MENTAL ISSUES WOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO VOTE EITHER. PEOPLE NOT COMPETENT ENOUGH TO MANAGE THEIR OWN LIVES SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO CAUSE THE REST OF US TO SUFFER FOR THEIR MENTAL DEFICIENCIES BY ALLOWING THEM TO VOTE.

    I just have to say that I think it is ridiculous to claim racism just because someone disagrees with the policies that you lay out. I can tell you that there will always be someone who will disagree with you on something not matter how big or little it is. I don’t cry because someone disagrees with me. They are entitled to their opinion. In this case, Obama has no clue what he is doing. The American people should not have elected him to office in the first place. He does not have the experience to rule a nation such as this. His policies are stupid. They make no sense at all. I think that it is outrageous to threaten our elderly and our veterans with not receiving their much earned social security checks. I pesonally have not problem with them taking checks from people who are just too lazy to work but get real. I work everyday and pay into social security, but it isn’t even going to be there for me when I retire. We need to vote in someone who has the common sense to lead this nation. I just hope we can survive another year of this administration in mean time.

        • Bruce

          Coal Miner,

          SS was voluntary up until the late 1950′s. But I am sure U know that.

          • babybikerbabe

            Social Security is STILL voluntary, but Americans have become so dumbed down that they just follow instructions.

            There is NO LAW, none, nada, nil that requires a Native (also known as natural) Born citizen to get a number. But try to get a baby out of a hospital today without filling out that form!! (actually it’s easy, you just don’t name them.) You can attend school, get jobs, everything without one. It’s not easy, but it can be done.

            Social Security Numbers are for people who WANT Federal Benefits – period. So, right up front you’re saying “Hey Uncle Sam, I expect to be SOOOOO incompetent with planning my life that I will need your help later in life.”.

            I say 7.15% of my pay, set aside in an account that is JUST FOR ME, would more than cover my expenses later in life.

            Additionally – Social Security is the ORIGINAL Ponzi scheme.

        • Bob

          Yes, you imbecile, I know what effect it would have. If we had been able to actually invest our money, most of us would be several times richer than we are under SS. Instead, our money went to feed parasitic scum on welfare and went into the pockets of union loafers on the government payroll. I doubt that you have a finacial advisor (unless it is your bookie) but, if you do, take your SS statement to him and ask him to do a comparison of what you have today in SS versus what you would have had if you had made reasonably good investments. SS is a ripoff and guarantees poverty to those who have nothing but SS for retirement. SS is theft and those who support it are thieves.

      • mickey

        I’m not sure it is only the far right for Wall Street has been eyeing that fund for decades. WS already took massive amounts of IRA’s. Of course the government as trustees didn’t fare well either but I think it was from the DSA side that expanded SSA into welfare.

Let’s take the initiative in pointing out that it is the “liberals”, socialists, fascists, communists, CFR-types, nazis, and other self-annointed “do-gooders” who are the racists.

    I’ve actually been face-to-face with Ms.Jackson Lee or someone who looks just like her at least 500 times in the local Walmart. I remember my first encounter when standing in a long line waiting to check out when suddenly an ear piercing loud voice shook me back to consciousness with, “Ya’ll neda open anotha register”.

    Another time was when I patiently waited for a customer to vacate a parking spot so that I might utilize it when suddenly a car with dents on all four sides whipped in and stole it away from me. Seconds later, the driver (Jackson Lee clone)emerged completely oblivious to the offense she just committed and gleefully waddled towards the entrance of the store clutching with one hand a dangling, screaming two year old about six inches short of touching the ground.

    The next time I saw her was when I noticed that her picture was on the bottle of pancake syrup I was about to purchase… I put it back.

    • eddie47d

      Yes, Michael J you do have a racist problem. It is nice to see your rant in full bloom and everyone elses “dark” humor.Ben sets you up in his candy store comments and not a one of you can resist the temptation to bite into his taffy. You all feel better now? The fact of the matter is you do treat President Obama disrespectfully so this Lee person is not wrong. This reminds me of the old Birth of a Nation movie where the Klan demonizes the few black in Congress. You are all experts at this. You know,make them look like buffoons(monkeys) as in the Birth of a Nation and you can turn millions against them. That is a D.W Griffith trick and you have learned it well.

        This is racism:

        • Bob

          Yes -lieberals are the true racists because they must keep people of color down in order to manipulate them. Most of the racists I know are working-class scumocrats and ivory tower lieberals. Eddie must be a racist because he keeps bringing race into the argument. By the way, I would call a conservative with different colored skin than mine a brother/sister long before I would call a lying white trash lieberal like eddie a brother.

        eddie, you are aware that whites call other whites by the “n” word, aren’t you? since most sites wouldn’t allow the definition of “N##ly” I guess you will have to look it up?

        Am I to understand that Clyburn’s calling the Tea Party “terrorists” is ok? Especially since the government has a vendetta against “terrorists” to the extent there is now a warrantless search with instructions for a taped mouth?

    • mickey

      lol Michael J, that picture is of one of many who became very rich (in a supposed upside down world). NY used to have an elite black class. The DSA plays down that white schools were educated in US history, all colors. Doesn’t say much for her and her district not to mention “hanging” was a picnic event in the old days.

      The same with the Indians selling tomahawks to the tourists; they found a way to make a buck. Ever notice that is isn’t the “melting pot” crew that is complaining but the separists?

  • Kathy Foster

    Samurai, You and Freedom Fighter have it right. Our disdain of Obama is not about his skin pigmentation whatsoever. It IS totally about who and what he represents………..that NOT being anything remotely representing a free people. As for this Shiela Jackson Lee, she has painted herself as yet another of those black individuals who is DEFINITELY racist. BTW, isn’t she the one who asked if the Mars rover was going to be able to take pictures of the flag that Armstrong planted when he was there????? We need more like her somewhere else. As long as we have the Progressive Liberals keeping things stirred up with the blacks, we’re going to have the black community supporting individuals like Obama out of spite. We need to see that their tactics are designed to keep Americans of all races separated at their roots. Americans are Americans. They are NOT African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Brazilian Americans, Norweigan Americans, Argentin Americans or anything else. They are simply AMERICANS! People who are proud and honored to be living in this country. If you, as and individual do not want to be plainly and simply “an American”, then you have fallen into the progressive liberal’s trap and way of thinking. The very foundation of this country is cemented by peoples of all races from every corner of the globe and it is that foundation that Obama and his people are attacking at every opportunity when they seek to divide us racially.

  • Harold Olsen

    Anytime Republicans say or do something that Democrats do not like and don’t have a valid argument against it, the Democrats always scream racism. It clearly shows just how stupid and ignorant Democrats are and what low intelligence they possess. Sheila Jackson Lee is one of the most stupid and ignorant members of that hate group called the Democrat party.

  • Arecee

    B.O. is half white. Give me a break! Rasism is escapism for stupidity, nothing more and I’m tired of that hand being played. Once he became the first black president there was nothing “left” to say. He has been judged on his merit, or lack there of. Sheila is so far out in “left” field it’s rediculous. BUT, what’s new!

  • Bemused

    Oh Sheile you are right. It is not because he has tripled thenational debt, it is not because as a canddidate he promised to make the cost of power skyrocket, it is not because he closed the largest coal mine in W Virginia, refused to obey a judge’s order to resume drilling inthe gulf, has done an end run around congress and pushed billions of dollars of refits on coal fired power plants in order to close them down, it is not because he bows to foreign kings or throws a birthday party on the day th eeconomic skuy is supposed to fall…youare right! IT IS BECAUWE OF HIS COLOR, HE IS HALF WHITE!!!!

  • Carl

  • just little ole me

    What ever happened to impeachment? I hold our congress very liable even more so then the president because they have that power and are not using it. Obama has done everything he can to try and destroy America’s economy. You only have to study who he is and see what he is doing to know this. This is called being a traitor to the country and their our others in our government who are doing it out right. Talking America down while they tell other countries they are so great. A dishonest government reflects on the dishonesty of the people. We need to point the fingers back at many of the American people. We didn’t put in wise or honest people in our government. We fix ourselves and we fix The United States of America.

  • chuckb

    guess who is to blame for all the black racism and hostility, how about the bleeding heart liberals. how about civil rights legislation. we have taken a race of people and propelled them into positions they were not qualified for just because they were of a certain color. when resentment arose then the word racism popped out. i doubt of there ia a race of people on this earth that has been pampered more than the blacks. i doubt if there is a race anymore prejudiced than blacks. we have no one to blame more than ourselves. we have been traumatized by self guilt over the slave issue. the black people have the same rights as you and i, if they are not accepted in a neighborhood so be it, i know there’s lots of black neighborhoods i wouldn’t last a minute. however, the politicians and the money hungry attorneys jumped on the band wagon, there were votes to be had and civil rights law suits with million of dollars attached.
    the blacks should pick themselves up by their own initiative, earn their respect through their efforts all races have been forced to do this. the liberal philosophy doesn’t work we pay them to have children, so guess what, they have an abundance of children, we give them welfare, guess what they don’t want to work, we place them in power, guess what they don’t have the faculties to handle the job. there are a few that proved they can if they earn their way. the black caucus in the congress is an example of affirmative action and sheila jackson proves that and the rest are no better. compare them with congressman west. when you give people something for free they seldom appreciate it. you might say a good example is sitting in the white house, a complete incompetent.

    • mickey

      I have to admit that minorities were not given the chance to work themselves up, sort of learn on the job, like given to other groups. I remember when all this started, employers were on board but many times blacks discriminated against the person trying to better himself–result, blacks made it harder for them to succeed than actual employers not wanting it to succeed. However, I have to say that AA went awry when threats of lawsuits for every crossed eye became a money maker.

      As long as AA is in effect, minorities cannot be treated equal. A lazy white can be fired, a lazy minority becomes the new status quo due to the threat of a lawsuit. Get rid of minimum wage, welfare, and AA and we will be on the same sheet of music.

    So why does she get attention when I know that a lot of minority organizers really do do their best to get people out of the ghettos?

  • EdinNola

    Rep. Lee is amply demonstrating her own racism. Americans have no quarrel with Obama’s color. We were aware of his color when we put him in office. What we were not aware of, and it was carefully held under cover, was that he was / is a Communist. Making this country over into the last Communist country to be overcome and added to the One World Communist Utopia, is NOT what we (Americans) had in mind. Communism works only to “dumb everyone down” to the point where the self serving, self appointed idiots who believe themselves for some reason, to be superior to the rest of us, can exercize control over all of us. Progressives, Communists like yourself need to leave this country. Go to Cuba or Venezuela, or Russia. Just get away from us.

    • Bob

      Actually, maobama didn’t fool any of us who were paying attention. For future reference, all scumocrats are marxist/atheist/mad dog murderers because they all support the programs of the marxist/atheist/mad dog murderers like maobama. I think we should quit using the term “progressive” for these heirs of stalin, hitler, and mao because it gives the impression that they are for moving forward when they actually plan to drag us backward in to the abyss of collectivist slavery – they are regressives, not progressives.

    I have another $10 that says…if this happens, Obama will declare Martial Law and assume the Imperial Throne…..any takers on that one?

      I was saying even before ’08′ if he doesnt get elected they will riot all over the nation. they were even threating to do just that if he didnt get elected. so i am with you on the bet and yes he will declare martial law. Needless to say 2012 will be a great year and i cannot wait. i am ready…

  • Song

    Just an observation: Those who posture themselves on the left and in support of Obama ignore articles like this one…why is that? They are also usually the first to trounce on women like Palin…but remain silent about women like this ignorant character even coming to her defense *Eddie? That alone speaks volumes.

    • meteorlady

      Because the mainstream media is pretty much controlled by Soros and the liberals. They would NEVER print a story like this one. While the liberals visit once in awhile, they usually stay with MSN, Yahoo news and the rest of the liberal slanted networks. They can’t stand the truth … it would totally upset them if they had to change their minds.

    • eddie47d

      Song; Maybe Sheila is a racist but this article didn’t prove it. It takes more than a howling crowd with insane comments to turn me against someone. Believe it or not Palin has numerous faults and is also a gold digger for publicity. You see they both have something in common.

  • meteorlady

    While I like the column I have one thing…. Bush didn’t invent No Child Left Behind. He simply reauthorized it in 2002. It is a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the central federal law in pre-collegiate education. The ESEA, first enacted in 1965 and last reauthorized in 1994, encompasses Title I, the federal government’s flagship aid program for disadvantaged students. We can thank LBJ for this one.

Unfortunately, the power mad meglomaniac who desires to be our last elected President and first dictator in the USA will do us no such favor. The cry babies in congress are too frightened to do anything about his illegal/illicit activities, but the American people are not afraid of these traitors. We need to keep the pressure up on these cry babies and threaten them with being ousted from office ASAP–and they should be reminded we don’t have to wait until the next election because the people have the power of recall and we will use it.

This president has an utter distain for the constitution and the American people.

      Don’t blame the “white race” Gary…there were others who voted just as well, and that combination out-numbered the “white” vote. Furthermore, there were MANY INSTANCES of illegal voting throughout the US…some voters were deceased by a number of years. Other votes came from illegal aliens. Obama and Soros know this, put their stamp of approval on the farce…..and guess what, the thug from the chicago mafia won. Go figure!

      American Citizen……Once you understand the “The Black Code.” It all makes sense. Most blacks grow up adhering to an unspoken, subliminally understood Black Code.
      1. You must kick the butt of any white person who calls you the “n word.”
      2. You must never let a white person beat you in a fight.
      3. Relationships with whites must be kept at arm’s length maintaining a silent us against them mindset. Blacks who appear too friendly and comfortable around whites are viewed with suspicion; their blackness in question.

    How does one dare use “The Honorable” when they are less than “Honorable?” In this case, “The Hon. Ms. Jackson Lee” is a misnomener because she is the worlds worst RACIST and PANDERER in Washington. Jackson Lee, a communist goldenrod of ill-repute is as shameful as she is disgusting…why do voters keep putting her back into office? It appears that they fail to review her sorry record and her desire to enslave the voters who ‘adore’ her. Unfortunately, we have many more just like her holding office in high places…and the voters are at fault. It is time for the voters to review and scrutinize those contenders to the power positions in government; replace those who are the Jackson Lee’s in the Congress, Senate, WH, AND US Supreme Court. These foul mongrels are not above the law and they should be treated in the manner that criminals deserve. They are the reason that our nation’s capitol has become the swamp infested region of the USA……..time to clean house, disinfect it, and put out the bug/snake barriers to keep the vermin from ever entering the legislative halls again.

  • chuckb

    cjm, in order to stop people like shiela jackson lee from an elective office, you will have to stop the blacks from voting. the districts these goof balls come from are mostly black area’s. these are the people who 95% of them voted for barry, i doubt they know anything about their representative other than they are promised everything for free, they are deserving. communism thrives.

    • CJM

      chuckb: Not all blacks share those sentiments; some are anti-obama and are disgusted with the likes of al sharpton, jesse jackson, sheila jackson, etc. Many blacks do not know about politics because they actually do not get the political news they need in their areas…black commentators seem to like the free money they get for sponsoring these rogue congressional members.

    Is Sheila Jackson Lee really that stupid?
    July 17, 2010-Louisville Public Policy Examiner

    This week, Rep. Lee gave a speech at the NAACP convention, and told an enthusiastic crowd that the Tea Party participants were nothing more than Ku Klux Klan members without their robes:

    All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party. Don’t you be fooled. [voices: "That's right.", applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement. Don’t let anybody tell you that those who spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill for all of America or those who said Congresswoman Jackson-Lee’s braids were too tight in her hair had anything to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don’t let them fool you on that [applause]….

    Here is the video of Rep. Lee’s recent speech to Congress concerning the present level of cooperation between “North and South Viet Nam:”

      Her comment on the Tea Party was painted with a broad brush and she deserves to be called out on it. With that video: That wasn’t anything to slam her for. Most Americans still look at those two previous countries as being divided because that is how they remember it when the war was going on. Hardly a big deal or a controversial issue.

  • Ret_MSgt

    I have sat and read through all the comments made here. I to have issues with what she has said. However, to see the name calling that is accompanied make me really sad that I am an American. We can all agree the what she said is far fetch. But how we any better than the people that voter her in if all we can do is name call. I was born and raised in the South. I left only for my career in the Military and so see comments that make a valid point loose their creditability because of the name calling let me know that nothing has change. She calls someone racists and everyone calls her racist as well as other names. So what is the difference between you and her? I looking for educated comments that can reassure me that people will step to the plate and make arguments that can stand on their own merits. Name calling does not give anyone a leg up on anyone else.
    I have been a life long Republican. I currently do not see one candidate that I am willing to vote for because their extreme ideas are just as bad as Jackson-Lee’s. So we go from one extreme to another. And as far as the comment about Michelle Bachman being qualified. My god folks she is trying to rewrite history for her own agenda. And some of you actually thinks she is good enough to be President. Give me someone anyone black or white that does not have these left field or right field ideas.
    The reason President Obama will get reelected is because with all the good arguments against reelected him they will be lost to potient voters because of the hate and name calling that accompanies them. Think long and hard about continuing the name calling. It can and will come back to haunts us all.

  • Ret_MSgt

    Chuckb that’s right you don’t know if I a republican or not. But still does not change the fact we are shooting ourselves in the foot with this type of talk. All I am saying if we can’t rize above the level she is showing how are we any better. And she is not my congresswomen. I come here looking for fact not name calling or mudslinging. But that is why being a republican is so disgusting to me now. I cannot even voice my opinion without being disrepected. That is what the problem is with the party and that is why I am so concerned about President Obama getting reelected. The so called independents which both he and whom ever is selected to run against need do cater to this kind of talk. If we run them off then we get another 4 years of him. And it will be our own fault. Think about that while you try and ridicule me.

  • chuckb

    ret-msgt, what facts do you want? the facts about sheila j. lee. all you have to do is look up her voting record, she’s strictly a communist. most of the black caucus is. what more info do you want. as far as the name calling, you evidently resent the accurate portrayal of this person, she’s arrogant, racist and shouldn’t be in congress and guess what, voters put her there, so that says a lot for the people in her district. so just to be fair i feel the same way about barbara boxer and some of these other marxist congress people from california.
    one other thing, the voters put barry soetoro in office, that doesn’t speak well for them either. somewhere along the line people will have to learn more about the person they vote for, if they want to keep their country free. politicians with power can’t be trusted.

    ret-msgt, one other thing i don’t mean to ridicule you, i just have a hard time believing you are a republican the way you talk. just be an american first, then vote what ever party suits you, try to vote for people who profess to be american, barry and michelle have insulted our allies, insulted our country, refuse to honor the flag, only when forced too. has disdain for the military and has the country in an economic mess. he refuses to prove his citizenship and most likely is a closet muslim. and the democratic party supports this.

    • Ret_MSgt

      Chuck, here is my problem with name calling. It has never changed anyone’s mind except the weak minded. Anyone that is highly educated does not like it or condone it. If anything is to change we need to change the ways we address problems. Disrespectful comments and name calling does not work. As far being a republican goes, yes I believe in smaller government. I do not need the government to tell me how to spend my money. But just like I don’t need the government to spend my money, I don’t need the to tell me what I can and cannot do in my bedroom. I am pro-choice. I do not believe that anyone else should make the decision on whether a woman need to bring a child into the world that may or may not be given a good life. I look at abortion the same way I look at the government taxing the hell out of me, I can make my own decision. I believe in gun ownership, I have several. The gay issue as far as I am concerned what you do in your bedroom is your business. What I don’t like about them is the public display they put on. But as the same time I don’t like a straight couple sucking face in public. Take that to your home. Both straight and gay need to keep their sexual conduct private. I do not want to see it from either.
      The problem I see in the Republican party is that unless you believe in 100% of what the party says you are an outcast. So how does that make the republican party any different than the democratic party. If we cannot disagree like educated people and not be called names, then why should I or anyone else listen to anything the party has to say. There is a lot we can agree on as far as what is happening to the country. But the disrespect that is being shown is doing more to hurt our cause than help it.
      As been mentioned before, we all know that in certain districts how the vote will go no matter what we say or do. Those we must accept that we cannot change. However, the moderate individual being republican or democrat or independent does not and will not listen if all we can do is lower ourselves.
      I am a very opened minded individual. I have been to combat. I am not intimidated by words. I can listen to anyone’s point of view regardless on whether I agree with them or not. That is their right to voice their opinion. They is what I defended for 22 years. If I deny them that right or start trying to belittle them for their opinion then what did I spend 22 years of my life defending? What did I get shot for? Understand where I am coming from. There is a lot of thing happening in this country that I find disgusting. But again it always come back to what did I spend 22 years of my life defending? If you have a point to make then make it like you have sense. Calling people names only work on the weak minded.

        ret-msgt, what do you consider name calling?, my calling lee a communist?, she is. i call your president a fraud and un-american, is that name calling? i believe he resents this country and i believe he is a muslim, is that name calling. there are video after video of him claiming himself muslim and him denigrating the country. he refused to salute the flag and was forced to wear the flag as a lapel pin only on special ocassion. that’s why i call him a fraud, is that name calling? there is more than enough evidence out there that proves his last effort to produce a legitimate birth certificate is fraudulent, do you want to call him a legitimate president i don’t. if barry soetoro was white i believe he would have been removed from office by now. every other word this man speaks is a lie, nobody seems to worry. i could go on all day about barry and yes it bothers me and i believe the only reason there hasn’t been an effort to remove him from office is the fact he’s black and any effort to remove him would be met with anarchy in the streets of this coutries largest cities. the republicans don’t have the courage to begin with, that reflects in the budget talks going on right now. so if that’s name calling i’m guilty. i served in the south pacific in ww2.

        • Ret_MSgt

          Chuck I have seen those video and since I work in the computer/graphics industry, I know a doctored video when I see one. There is a lot about him I do not like. However, believing the out right lies that have told about him is NOT an option. This whole birth certificate thing is just plain crazy. I have focus my effort on getting my Texas Congressman and Senators to take a stand and vocalize it. Don’t you understand by now, if they can get us to focus on a birth certificate, or whether he is muslim or not then we have taken our eye off the ball. Do not get wrapper up in these meaningless thing. Email and call your senator and congressman on a daily bases. Get your friend and family to do the same. Find out who are on the fence about who to vote for and present facts that they can find from several sources.
          If name calling makes you feel good, fine so be it. Just know that you are not helping the cause by doing this. You are sending more and more people to his side. I talk to people everyday and hear the same complaint, enough with the name calling give me some facts.
          You are using the most powerful tool in the world today. A computer. People use this to research information. If you, me and other cannot produces facts that are supported by several different sources we do not stand a chance. Just think about that.

          • chuckb

            ret-msgt, you keep saying that name calling is causing people to turn away, what do you consider name calling? when i say he lies, he does lie. he repeats what he is told thru the teleprompter, surely you must see this. he lied about obamacare, he couldn’t answer questions about any of the healthcare bill and lied about that. this man knows not what he doeth, he is handled by the shadowy figures in his administration, his job is to speak thru the teleprompter. if you know computers so well, just google obama lies. they have records of them and don’t tell me these are all formulated by his enemies. i don’t criticize barry because he is black, i critize him because he is a fraud and manipulated
            by what i call plain old communist. check out his cabinet. if you are black you should resent this man representing the black race and if you are retired military you should resent him for his disdain for the military. bill clinton had the same credentials.

  • Hughze

    Oh Shiela, The racist card is worn out and obviously garbage. So just ‘Move On!’

    • JC

      She has no substance to begin with, so the race card is all she’s got.
      Like most liberal / communists.

  • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan

    Shiela’s rhetoric is hate speech, plain and simple. Most Americans have had it with the race card. People who continue to do this can look forward to scorn and ostracism.

    Two groups keep racism going. One is the activists who teach victimology. The other is the politicians who exploit racisim for funding and reelection.

  • pete the simian

    Ben,

    She’s probably right ! Look at the evidence.

    “Whitey” Presidents like Reagan, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. were able to raise the debt limit — Clinton (White) was able to raise the debt limit – until Newt stopped him..

    All of a sudden – Mostly “Whitey” Senators and Congressmen are concerned about the debt limit .. They sure weren’t worried about it (except for Ron Paul) until lately …. ESPECIALLY THE REPUBS !! I guess they paid off Wall Street enough to guarantee their re-election ???

    Sounds like a conspiracy – it’s justice or “just us white people !” when it comes to raising the debt limit …

  • http://personalliberty Rocky

    Sheila you should know what a racist looks like. You see one every time you look in a mirror, You Racist Bigot Marxist!

  • Mutantone

    It is well past time to just follow the Constitution no where does it say they can serve over and over again the limits are very clear. it is their usurpation of the Law that keeps them in office over and over again

    Section 2 – The House The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.
    Section 3 – The Senate The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, (chosen by the Legislature thereof,) for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

  • Verus Langham

    If her “own people” were to just listen with their minds to her race-card diatribe each and every time she tries to pontificate they would realize the meaningless conflict she sets up almost immediately with national unity… ever the protagonist of any who might utter a true word about her idol-in-chief she deliberates at the junior-high school level (and that is cutting her considerable slack) on things that most fourth-graders would consider offensive. She neither has the imagination to put forth a decent proposal for things that are meaningful nor the intelligence to research her points of talking before she outs herself as a dyed-in-the-wool racist.
    She should be the easiest mark for removal at election time if her constituents do not call for a recall before that time… she just doesn’t get the picture of what her duties are and the big picture about the nature of government and the need for civility. With her passing from the ranks of those who truly are honorable we can all take a sigh of relief with the hopes that her constituents will have learned the necessity to vote in an intelligent way and eschew voting based upon her dual-minority standing (black and woman) and just elect in the best person to fill her shoes (that would not be a great task, I am certain everybody will agree).

  • Altaica

    Good article.

    Shiela needs to learn that race has nothing to do with being a complete idiot. She also needs to learn that media loves to point out glaring mistakes and idiocies. If you’re a public figure and you have a slip of the tongue, mispronounce something, misquote something it’s going to get recorded. That’s just a fact of life. People love to point out one another’s flaws, especially if you’re public figure. If you’re constantly an idiot then you’re constantly gonna get tagged. She chose to be in a public office, she needs to just learn to deal with it. She is showing herself to be an idiot by blaming this on race, which is why she likely just won’t get the picture. How many times has the media pointed out Bush’s flaws? How about Clinton’s? Deal with it lady, if you do and say idiotic things it’s gonna be publicized whether you like it or not.

    In my opinion Obama leaves a lot to be desired. Yet another politician that filled his voters with empty promises. It is my opinion that Obama is a complete failure as our president and has only succeeded in exacerbating the already troubled American economy. We do not need a higher debt ceiling, we need to cut the fat from the spending. I say we start with kicking anyone who is not in this country legally off the social aid systems. That ought to free up a good chunk of money.

    It is my opinion that the overplayed race card is what got Obama the votes. My opinion is that human is the race and people need to stop using a variation in the amount of skin pigmentation as an excuse for everything.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Of course it’s not just Sheila Jackson Lee. I’m tired of hearing all this racism drivel!! Perhaps it’s time to give the leftwing Democraps a dose of their own medicine. Let’s ask them questions; e.g.: Who would you rather vote for (for POTUS) – Walter E. Williams or Chucky Shmucky Schumer?? What about Thomas Sowell vs. Chris (the ‘thrill up his leg’ moron) Matthews?? Or Allen West vs. Hillary Rotten Clinton?? Or Herman Cain vs. Dirty Harry Reid?? Or Clarence Thomas vs. Nasty Stretch Pelosi?? Or Alan Keyes vs. Henry Wacko-man Waxman?? Although I am white, I’d vote for the black candidate in all of the above hypothetical contests. Now let’s ask all the drones and diehard liberal Obama supporters who they’d vote for. I’m sure they’d choose the white candidates. VOILA!! Now we can ask the liberals if they’re racists!! In fact, let’s also ask Sheila Jackson Lee and Rev. Al Sharpton which of the above candidates they’d support. LOL!! I bet they’d be traitors to their own race!!

  • chuckb

    earl, queens, if you want to see who is racist, if you are white, just take a walk thru most black neighborhoods in los angeles or the bay area. you may make it out alive or maybe not.

    • Kate8

      chuckb – That is very true.

      And do you know how these neighborhoods came to be all black, or all Muslim, or whatever? Because the whites who initially lived in them had to accept them into their communities, and were slowly driven out.

      Diversity is only forced into communities when they are predominately white. When they become totally OTW, no one cares.

  • samantha

    Patti,

    I understand what you are saying and you are bringing up good points. There has been slavery then and it continues today. When the Spaniards were powerful they tried to enslave Indians but they became sick easily. The only thing is your response about illegals, honestly they are not the ones that are screwing us it is our own people who are on this. It is American companies and employers who want to not pay american workers benefits and higher wages so they sell us out and outsource. If they did not open the door it would not happen and instead of people being enraged with the real culprits people are directing their anger towards illegals. This issue is used to keep us disgruntled and is a great topic for political figures to use to get support but the truth is they want it to happen because it is killing the middle class.

  • GEORGE

    what do they call a female dog, shiela jackson lee.

  • bozo

    Well, I guess my observation might put a little different spin on it.
    Don’t I remember that O had a mother who was white? We don’t often consider that point simply because he “identified” with his father. To my arithmetic, 50% and 50% do NOT necessarily make black. It could just as easily make white – yes? If this Texas brainiac wasn’t such a racist herself…wanting feverishly to attach O to the black community, she might consider that what she was so vigorously defending might as easily be an incompetant WHITE man! Wouldn’t that frost her around the edges?

  • denniso

    Incompetent is spelled w/ an e,not an a…If you know any history,any amount of Black blood that is enough to give the person the appearance of being Black was and still is considered enough to make the person Black. In the glory days of the old south,if a man or woman looked at all Black,they were considered third class citizens and consigned to Black only parts of town,hotels,restaurants,drinking fountains. Many partly Black folk did their best to ‘pass’ for white so the could have equal access and opportunity. Now you rightwingers bitch that a Black appearing man choses to be identified as Black…give it up,and do something productive and helpful w/ your obviously too free time.

    • Jay

      Unlike you denniso, spending your free time writing and posting drivel? Btw, it’s pigment, not blood, that gives a person the appearance of being black, professor!

      • denniso

        You should be careful about showing your ignorance,Jay. Being Black and appearing so is not just a question of pigment. Hair is often one identifiable thing,and facial characteristics are another. How many racists have been sure to remind us that most Black persons lips are different than most whites? Obama looks Black,and is identified as such by all whites whether he likes it or not.

        • Jay

          Big whoop tee dooo!!!!
