Have Democrats Ever Read The Constitution?

In this case, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. You can read all about her uber-liberal tendencies at Discover the Network, but one of her doozies was saying that hurricanes shouldn't be so "lily white," and that "All racial groups should be represented," Lee said, according to the Hill. She hoped federal weather officials "would try to be inclusive of African-American names."

Now, according to legislation she submitted on Friday, Jan 5th, she let's the whole country know that she, an elected representative of the 18th District of Texas, has no clue what the Constitution of the United States says

H.CON.RES.14
Title: Expressing that Congress has the sole and exclusive power to declare war.
Sponsor: Rep Jackson-Lee, Sheila [TX-18] (introduced 1/5/2007)      Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 1/5/2007 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Gee, Sheila, Article I, Section 8

The Congress shall have Power……To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

I may just be some guy in pajamas (well, sweatpants, anyhow), but that seems pretty simple and explicit to me.

I, Loyal Citizen of the Republic, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

Kinda hard to defend the Constitution when one doesn't even know it.

    I would say something about the historical IQ levels of different races but it would start a race riot. ROFL

    Some people are just born stupid and no amount of education can help them.
