U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D. Texas) actually referred to the U.S. Constitution being 400 years old on the floor of the House !!!!

I really have no doubt at all that this was NOT a mistake.

I bet she might think this is true and correct.

This week's "Blue Ribbon" award.....


Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old Wednesday on the House floor, which would mean it was signed in 1614.

“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,” she said.

Oh my god.

Incompetence must be a disqualifying factor for our legislators, she should step down.

She represents the people of her district. To be sure, if I lived there, she would not have my vote.

That's what the clerk told her when she bought George Washington's coat.

This woman is a disgrace...

40% of US citizens failed to correctly identify the year of the so-called "9/11 attacks".

We will never forget....


The Texas Rep. is probably representative of her constituency. Hell, they think the Earth is 5000 years old and Noah fit two of everything on the arc.

How do you judge competency to govern in that context?

As an American, I'll agree... lol; our system is so corrupt, and by saying that i mean we American's no longer have a say as to who is elected. We are only given a choice between certain politicians, we have to pick whoever we think will do the best job or don't vote at all; we no longer have a people's choice in an election.

The problem is that the ones that have been voted into office and know our history very well, have not been any better. As matter of fact I'm more worried about the ones that look competent.

to all you american types that are putting this gal down its YOU who don't know your own history and it seems you don't quite know how to read...

seems to me she is referring to the early history of the us and she is referring to the time under the constitution as not exactly the same as the time the whites arrived and first stayed

your history lesson


First Dutch Settlers

The first group of Dutch settlers did not stay for long on the new continent and they can hardly becalled settlers. It had not been their choice to stay there: their ship, the Tyger (tiger) had caught fire sailing on the Hudson. Captain Adriaen Block was commanding one of the ships that came looking for trade on the American coast in the years after Hudson's voyage. They bartered beads and knives for furs from the natives. When Block came in the winter of 1613-1614 he lost his ship in a fire and had to spend the winter in America. He let his crew build a couple of huts and then they began building a sloop, the Onrust (unrest). In the spring Block and his men did some explorations along the coast of Long Island (Het Lange Eiland). Block Island still bears his name. Finally they were sighted by another Dutch ship and Block and his crew were off again.
