    She was the one that said Healthcare was an Entitlement and should be Constitutional.....she also did this 4 days ago.



    Texas’ Jackson Lee casts hypocritical vote for police state snooping.....

    HOUSTON – Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has consistently opposed the expansion of federal surveillance authority.

    Most of those votes were quixotic protests against bills certain to pass.

    But when she actually had a chance to cast a vote that mattered yesterday, a chance to restrict surveillance to where it is warranted, she abandoned her long-held position, and opposed a bipartisan amendment to end the National Security Agency’s blanket collection of phone records.

    The amendment by Reps. Justin Amash (R) and John Conyers (D) of Michigan would have ended the NSA’s collection of records, including phone calls, of people unrelated to any investigation.

    The measure failed on a 205-217 vote, but still shocked the leadership of both parties, who had kept the practice secret from the American people for years.

    In 2008, she voted against granting immunity to the telecoms that helped the Bush administration conduct warrantless wiretapping.

    In 2011, she voted against extending the PATRIOT Act.

    In 2012, she voted against reauthorizing the FISA Amendments Act, which allows warrantless surveillance of Americans’ overseas communications.

    In 2013, she did the opposite.

    The measure divided both parties, with Republicans voting 134-94 against it, and Democrats voting 111-83 for it.

    The Texas GOP delegation voted 14-10 against the Amash amendment, while Texas Democrats voted 8-4 against it.

    The 10 votes in favor mark a stark change for the state GOP. In recent years, Texas Republicans have done almost nothing to slow the expansion of the surveillance state, as Watchdog.org has reported.

    The Republicans who voted to protect the Fourth Amendment were Joe Barton, Michael Burgess, Blake Farenthold, Louie Gohmert, Ralph Hall, Kenny Marchant, Ted Poe, Steve Stockman, Randy Weber and Roger Williams.....snip~

    Well if you are concerned about DHS invading people's privacy, appointing someone from the CIA is to blame for every ill a black person has suffered coalition might not be the worst choice. I support it 100% --Bold Leadership right there

    Yea your'e probably right.

    Hank re-affirms his stupidity with the occasional massively stupid statements like " Guam flipping Over".

    SJL re-affirms her stupidity with a constant stream of ridiculous outburst.

    The Obama administration is so far gone I honestly wouldn't mind seeing her take the reigns from Napolitano.

    So she has some qualifications. Thus it begs the question: what disqualifies her? Race? Gender?

    A sharp third grader has some qualifications. When compared to her, what disqualifies the third grader?
