IN BLACK AND WHITE, THE LAST SECTION OF THE 14th AMENDMENT: Section 5.
"The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
NO WHERE, NO WHERE DO I SEE THE WORD PRESIDENT in the "power" or "enforce" section!!!
NOTE: Variations of SAME LANGUAGE (giving CONGRESS... not the turd-in-chief said "power" to "enforce") is found in several Amendments.
Yeah. I'm pretty sure the Constitution doesn't have extra small print underneath the 14th Amendment. If so...I must need new glasses because I sure didn't see anything which states that the president has any authority (it specifically says Congress has authority to authorize it) to amass more debt (it only validates pre-existing debt).
You want to amend that comment or do you want me to do it? That is way beneath anything we expect from posters on this site.
Scoop, you're killing me! 2 times now today I had to watch this broad, and 2 times I had to see how much of a maroon she is. Oh my word she's touched! As someone else pointed out, one sided government?! Obamacare?!! These people have had over 3 YEARS to do something and have done NOTHING! Now, all of a sudden, old people are gonna die (well they will when obamacare is implimented) kids are gonna starve, and illegals may have to go back to their own countries because government won't be able to afford to give them housing, foodstamps, jobs, education, healthcare and social security!!!!!!!!! OH NOOOOOOOOOOO!
By the way, who are the ones who hate old people again!?
...the "idear"? Is she axing about this or what? Speak English!
She needs to go away and make a committee with Hank Johnson to worry about Guam capsizing...
Prediction I heard on the radio today is as follows:
Senate shuts down bill, then passes their own, Boehner shuts it down-
By Saturday there is nothing done, and then the POTUS comes in on Monday and becomes a dictator.
Of course I'm paraphrasing (and dictator is my word), but all this talk of the 14th amendment (and prime-time speeches) seems like it's just clearing the ground for this move. Wait until there is a crisis and here it comes. Can't imagine what would happen if it does turn out that way, and we all know how impossible it will be to impeach this guy as it will turn into a complete disaster, politcally, for the Reps since they will not convict in the Senate....all we'd end up with would be a "vindicated" victim community agitator- this all just looks bad.
She is holding up a compilation of
>The Communist Manifesto
>Rules For Radicals
>Everything ever written by Noam Chomsky
>and an additional 4k pages that just say "BUSH DID IT" over and over.
(sorry I ran out of Liberal books to include)
For some reason I doubt she has ever laid eyes on the US Constitution much less read it, maybe it's Lenin's book on Marx she's holding up.
Sheila Jackson Lee is a member of Congress who represents the 18th Congressional District in Houston, Texas. She insults her staff, cusses them out, and makes them do ridiculous things. She demands to be treated like a queen. Sheila has a built a reputation of being a loudmouth and a bully. She never turns down an opportunity to say something in front of a camera. She is a complete embarrassment to Texas and the city of Houston. But she also provides a great deal of entertainment
All she's doing by pushing this 14th Amendment talk is showing she's never even READ the amendment in question, much less the Constitution... It clearly states that CONGRESS is the branch of government that deals with the enforcement of that amendment... Not the executive branch...
I think she's holding a copy of "Dreams of My Constituents" or "The Audacity of Dependence." I can't really tell.
Oh dear, the stupid is really spewing forth today, isn't it. Who are her constituents? I'm going to have to visit that location just so I can see who these people are. Curiosity is really getting to me...
You're right, RS...the Constitution isn't that thick.
That's a book about Constipation.
The unabridged version.
She keeps it handy because of her perpetual full-of-it condition.
The book she is holding up is entitled "400 yrs of democratic rhetoric and scare mongering for the newly elected,"
