More Congressional Fruit Cake

Updated on March 13, 2014

The Breakfast Of Democrats

We Need Some Changes Alright!

I sure hope people are paying attention to the fruits and nuts crowd that has surfaced recently in both houses of our Congress. Recently we had the Majority Leader of the Senate, one Harry Reid, stand up and call Americans who have been bitten by the Obamacare bullet liars. Made up from the whole cloth in his words. I think the guy has more than one hole in his head.

Then we had a fruit loop Senator from New Jersey, one Cory Booker, stand up on the floor of the US Senate during the Democratic do nothing talk-a-thon claiming that on his one and only drive across the United States he drove to Hawaii where they have no Jersey style diners. The link at the bottom will take you over there in case you missed it.

Then we have missing village idiots like Alan Grayson who has escaped the asylum not once but twice. Sadly we now have another ill informed, evidently devoid of any educational credentials from my great state of Texas, one Shelia Jackson-Lee, who wants to stand in front of the House of Representatives and totally revise the US Constitution and how long we have used it to govern this nation. Good grief! So listen to what she said before we go on. Then listen to Trey Gowdy tell you the real deal.

How Ignorant Is Ignorant?

Trey Takes Obama And His Cronies To Task

It always amazes me how that Democratic math works or maybe doesn't work actually. Doing the math according to Jackson-Lee, the great Texas embarrassment, that would put the US Constitution being brought to life back in 1614. Interesting that in 1614 Pocahontas married John Rolfe in a lavish Democratic weeding ceremony in Jamestown, Virginia. Heck if she's going to tell a bald faced lie I may as well embellish it a bit.

What is even more confusing is that she is supposedly a Yale graduate and a grad of the University of Virginia Law School. More than likely, if she has any degrees, she got them out of box of Cracker Jacks, Both of those schools actually teach American history and in the law school's case US Constitutional Law is part of the curriculum. I'm wondering if her academic records are sealed tighter than a drum like her party leader's are sealed?

Her words again in print?

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not."

It appears that if ignorance is bliss this woman would have a spot already reserved in heaven. She has a spot reserved right next to the US Senator who drove to Hawaii.

Certified Loony Toon!

Jackson-Lee is obviously a product of a gerrymandered district down Houston way. It's as hard to imagine her being reelected over and over again as it is with Nancy Pelosi. Even those districts deserve adequate representation but maybe they figure these two birds of a feather equal adequate.

In context Jackson-Lee was trying to discuss the "Enforce The Law" Act that was being debated and which ultimately passed by the House of Representatives despite Jackson-Lee's objections. The very reason that the Act was brought forward and voted upon was because of the lawless, unconstitutional behavior of another scholar, constitutional supposedly, named Barack Hussein Obama. Maybe the woman missed the point of why it was passed?

Congress has strayed so far away from following the guidelines of the US Constitution when passing laws that it's pathetic. Jackson-Lee has contributed to that environment. Maybe race baiting Jackson-Lee has ignored the fact that the Obama administration, particularly the Justice Department, has the proclivity to pick and choose which Congressional mandated laws it will, or will not, enforce. So let me ask the woman? Where in your 400 year old US Constitution does it allow the executive branch that leeway? Wait! Maybe I should ask Pocahontas.

The Enforce The Law Act is now moving to the US Senate where Harry "Brain Dead" Reid will probably sit on it. I got something Harry can sit on and it isn't legislation. It's a sad state of US Constitutional affairs when one house of Congress has to sign "push back" legislation that mandates the executive branch enforce United State's law. Obama is already threatening to veto said Act if it reaches his desk so what does that say to you Obama zombies? Obama wants to be the "all" of our federal government. In some circles it's known as a dictatorship.

What some of these numb skull's we send to Congress fail to realize is that Obama wants to make them irrelevant and he's doing an excellent job. They are his puppets and it shouldn't be that way. They are sent to represent either their district or their state and not some wanna be dictator or political party apparatus. That is not what the founder's intent was when they passed the US Constitution back around 226 years ago. Jackson-Lee is only of by a couple of centuries.

Will someone, anyone, please inform this former slave that the U.S. Constitution was formally adopted on Sept. 17, 1787? This train has come so far off the track that the time is now to change many of our politicians like a mother changes her baby's diapers.

Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As always,

The Frog Prince

      Gowdy, as usual, was great, and we need alot more like him on Capitol Hill. But Jackson-Lee really shocks me. How can she logically infer that a Constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not is somehow "bad?" Absent a clear Constitution, vertical and horizontal separation of powers could not be maintained, and we would devolve into a pure dictatorship or medieval feudalism, where every person of power would consider anything he scribbled on a piece of paper "law." In fact, "law" would have no meaning, as absent a clear Constitution, you wouldn't even know what the law was until you were charged with something and awaited the randomly picked judge's "desired personal meaning" attached to the "laws" supposedly infracted. Law only has true meaning to the extent that framer intent in creating the law can be discerned in advance of taking an action. Hence, clarity in the Constitution, and all lower law, is critical. The black letter text of the law should match as closely as possible maker intent behind the law, and when there are variances between the two, judges should give the latter 100% supremacy in interpreting the law.

      Jackson-Lee is (unwittingly) proposing a "living Constitution," where all of us would be subject to the despotism of rampant judicial activism tethered to the "policy goals" of a dictatorial Executive branch. We are living under a system like that as we speak, because the Obama Administration refuses to obey the Constitution, and Obama gets to pick the judges. Jackson-Lee wishes to codify this heresy into our highest body of law.

      Under Jackson-Lee's regimen, the People are completely disenfranchised from government as the power of our elected members of Congress becomes too weak to make representative government anything more than window dressing. Our Founders intended that Congress be the strongest branch, and the Judiciary the weakest; one of their greatest fears was that the supreme role of Congress in making law would one day be usurped by the Executive, and possibly be accompanied by a capricious court system hewing to judge or Executive ideology. Their fears were eminently well founded.

      Frog, I can't believe it, mbuggieh didn't call you a racist! Guess playing the race card is really getting old even for the wackos. He has a point though, you really should write and express yourself according to mbuggieh's rules of fairness and equality, who do you think you are? I mean Sheila and Bachmann are both women! When you are waging the war on women you mustn't discriminate.

      And here I thought I was getting old, but I might be able to still do a little math.

      2014-1865 = 149. Our country has had no slaves for 149 years.

      1865-1776 = 89. About half the States of our country allowed slavery.

      None of us were here when the country allowed slaves. No one advocates for slavery. It is my opinion that when Abraham Lincoln said "A house divided against itself can not stand" that he did not intend for the statement to be interpreted as a subversive tactic.

      mbuggieh - How about you stay on topic. This isn't about Ms. Bachmann. Read it again. This is your only warning. If you have a hard-on for Michelle Bachmann then may I suggest you write your own Hub. I'm sure she knows that the US Constitution isn't 400 years old. Grow up and act like a knowledgeable blogger and not a bumpkin like the focus of this article.

      And what is the excuse of the upper middle-class suburban Wisconsin voters who have repeatedly elected Bachmann?

      Clearly they must be clueless about issues as well.

      Jackson Lee is just as you described, a great embarrassment. Sadly, too many in the wards and other lower income areas of Houston vote for her religiously and will tell you flat out they don't know a damn thing about the issues but she's one of them so she gets their vote. The woman is more than a little scary not to mention pushy to the point of borderline militant.

      How is it possible to write a hub about Congressional "whackos" ( as you call them) and not include Michelle Bachmann?

      Perhaps they went to the same school as the one that said we had 57 states.
