Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Claims
to be a ‘Freed Slave,’ Opposes
All Government Spending Cuts

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2013 1:26:11 PM

Texas’ national treasure speaks on history and the current state of government spending. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) urged her colleagues to reach a compromise to prevent spending cuts through sequestration, arguing that government programs are already as lean as they can be. “We’re at the bone almost, and sequester, that is across-the-board cuts, will literally destroy us and put us in a recession,” she said on the House floor Wednesday. She called on Republicans to meet Democrats at the negotiating table and rejected the idea that President Obama delivered a partisan State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Comments:
And this dimwit will be one of the ones screaming loudest and longest when everything comes crashing down. Good grief what an idiot.

Someone remind this "freed slave" that the other "freed slave" was responsible for signing off on sequestration.

So all other races who need assistance can just punt because ´freed slaves´ automatically go to the front of the line? What about the blacks who are not descended from slaves (there were freemen even back to colonial times? Or the native Americans, who were frequently enslaved in the Spanish colonies? Or the Chinese coolies? Or the indentured servants of all races, including whites? Or the unpopular immigrants (Irish, Italian, and other Southern Europeans) who were exploited and abused when they came here. This racist "witch" makes me sick with her constant demands for special privileges for blacks at the expense of all other races.

This woman is an embarrassment whose continuance in office confirms every negative stereotype and whose public comments invariably make one wince. There are others like her. It is discouraging to realize that they have constituencies. Of course, the liberal news media does its best to protect them. Like Obama, they are affirmative action hires. They are not held to the same standards as others.

If Ms. Jackson thinks she is a freed slave, she should contact the Freedman´s Bureau for assistance. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedmen´s_Bureau for details).

On second thought, she already has. She thinks the Federal government is and ought to be a vast modern day Freedman´s Bureau. She may have a point. There are a lot of citizens who are unwilling or unable to cope and take care of themselves. They definitely need assistance of some kind. Putting them on welfare and signing them up for food stamps does not begin to address the root of the problem but merely perpetuates their difficulties. A true Freedman´s Bureau modeled loosely on the one of Reconstruction days might be a start.

I´m willing to give Texas a pass on SJL. I think it´s kinda like a pet owner who keeps a really, really stupid, clumsy old dog around out of an excess of kindness, knowing how wrong it´d be to saddle someone else with the mutt, and being too kind to put it down.

That said, a couple suggestions: a. we need to have a CDC established. No, a different group, but same initials -- the Congressional Dumb Caucus. b. Members of the CDC will be prohibited from introducing or voting on any measure that affects, applies to, or uses tax money from any citizen not resident in the Member´s District.

Oh -- and reflecting the lighter workload, they´ll: be paid minimum wage; get $500-a-year in allowance for staff, travel, and office expenses; not be eligible for the Members´ healthcare benefits; or accrue retirement credits from their office-holding.

Agreed?

#23: No, sorry, wrong again. It isn´t Guam´s "buoyancy" that´s been worried over. It´s Guam´s metacentric height.

Being a Native Texan, I agree that SJL is an embarrassment to everyone except for her gaggle of voters in her district.

However, she has made the "Texas Monthly" mag´s Bum Steer Award list for as long as I can remember. (I wonder if she keeps them on her home fireplace mantle or in a shelf in her, ahem, congressional office? Seriously, I´m sure she thinks they are an HONOR!)

And, no, I don´t think there are actually "Bum Steer" trophies given out, although it would be WAY cool if there were.

#29: You join a large club.

Metacentric height is a critical part of naval architecture. Very roughly analogous to roll center in a car. It´s a dynamic condition/value; a ship´s hull rolling on its long axis if well designed gets self-righting force from changes in the relationship of center of buoyancy, center of gravity, and metacentric height, roughly. I use a seat-of-pants version when I build my large radio-controlled model ships. It´s worth looking into for the practical physics. Interesting.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority."

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided.

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some
