On the floor of the House of Representatives, congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (Houston,) proclaimed herself a “Freed Slave.”
Apparently she has become a Republican and has left the Democratic Party Plantation. For many years she has been a House slave doing the bidding of her overseers. It takes a lot of courage to leave the safety of the Plantation House where she has been a kept woman of color. The most courageous people and ones I admire the most are those who do not live on the plantation and freely speak their mind such as Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, and Walter E. Williams who withstand relentless assaults on their character.
Coincidentally, the National Rifle Association will hold their annual meeting in Houston. Perhaps that is why she has had this change of heart in 2013.
The NRA was founded in 1871 by those Union officers who helped free the original slaves, to promote firearm ownership and proficiency. Many former slaves were protected from the klan through the efforts of the NRA.
Welcome, Ms Lee, to your new found freedom. Although scary at first, you will find fulfilling experiences and new opportunities--along with many new, true friends.
