    Wow, this is the first time I've heard a liberal Democrat call for the US to reconsider its membership in the UN. The disgust and corruption is getting to be too much even for them...

    This is standard bullshit from this moron. She is only bringing this up to appeal to her constituents who are almost all black and think of themselves as African first, Americans second. They can't show you Dafur or even Africa on a world map but they identify with Africa as their homeland. Real Africans detest American blacks. I work with both, I've heard American blacks criticize Africans for how dark their skin is or even how stupid they are because they have an accent. The African blacks I work with think that American blacks are lazy, stupid and have poor priorities with no morals.

    You think we could arrange a trade? I find the Africans I work with to be very intelligent, highly motivated to do their job professionally and quickly. The opposite is true for the American blacks in general. When a job needs to be done you have to search for them because they are hiding out talking on the phone or off playing dominoes. They do the bare minimum and complain about how much they are forced to do. The communication is almost nonexistant between blacks and whites, they speak another language and it is constantly changing, they worry much more about looking what they concieve as Cool than doing the job efficiently and effectively.

    I would imagine Charlie Rangle and Sheila Lee will be first on the list to take another of many fact finding trips to Africa at the taxpayers expense as long as they can get a pilot that can find Africa.

    Hey NATO,

    This is what I mean when I call Sheila a moron.


    How the Imams Terrorized an Airliner
    Washinton Times Nov. 28, 2006 Audrey Hudson


    It’s becoming quite clear that those six imams removed from a plane at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport were not simply “praying,” but were deliberately staging an incident for political purposes: How the imams terrorized an airliner.
    Muslim religious leaders removed from a Minneapolis flight last week exhibited behavior associated with a security probe by terrorists and were not merely engaged in prayers, according to witnesses, police reports and aviation security officials.

    Witnesses said three of the imams were praying loudly in the concourse and repeatedly shouted “Allah” when passengers were called for boarding US Airways Flight 300 to Phoenix.

    “I was suspicious by the way they were praying very loud,” the gate agent told the Minneapolis Police Department.

    Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks — two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin.

    “That would alarm me,” said a federal air marshal who asked to remain anonymous. “They now control all of the entry and exit routes to the plane.”

    A pilot from another airline said: “That behavior has been identified as a terrorist probe in the airline industry.”

    But the imams who were escorted off the flight in handcuffs say they were merely praying before the 6:30 p.m. flight on Nov. 20, and yesterday led a protest by prayer with other religious leaders at the airline’s ticket counter at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

    Mahdi Bray (lgf: search), executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation (lgf: search), called removing the imams an act of Islamophobia and compared it to racism against blacks. “It’s a shame that as an African-American and a Muslim I have the double whammy of having to worry about driving while black and flying while Muslim,” Mr. Bray said.

    The protesters also called on Congress to pass legislation to outlaw passenger profiling. Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, Texas Democrat, said the September 11 terrorist attacks “cannot be permitted to be used to justify racial profiling, harassment and discrimination of Muslim and Arab Americans.”

    “Understandably, the imams felt profiled, humiliated, and discriminated against by their treatment,” she said.

    According to witnesses, police reports and aviation security officials, the imams displayed other suspicious behavior. Three of the men asked for seat-belt extenders, although two flight attendants told police the men were not oversized. One flight attendant told police she “found this unsettling, as crew knew about the six [passengers] on board and where they were sitting.” Rather than attach the extensions, the men placed the straps and buckles on the cabin floor, the flight attendant said.

    The imams said they were not discussing politics and only spoke in English, but witnesses told law enforcement that the men spoke in Arabic and English, criticizing the war in Iraq and President Bush, and talking about al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

    The imams who claimed two first-class seats said their tickets were upgraded. The gate agent told police that when the imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in first class when removed. A flight attendant said one of the men made two trips to the rear of the plane to talk to the imam during boarding, and again when the flight was delayed because of their behavior. Aviation officials, including air marshals and pilots, said these actions alone would not warrant a second look, but the combination is suspicious. ...

    One of the passengers, Omar Shahin, told Newsweek the group did everything it could to avoid suspicion by wearing Western clothes, speaking English and booking seats so they were not together. He said they conducted prayers quietly and separately to avoid attention. The imams had attended a conference sponsored by the North American Imam Federation in Minneapolis and were returning to Phoenix. Mr. Shahin, who is president of the federation, said on his Web site that none of the passengers made pro-Saddam or anti-American statements.

    No doubt she's a moron, but I'd listen to her long enough to get her vote on pulling out of the UN. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    Well I can agree with you on this subject. First of all if enough American Blacks would stand up against this very thing enough times and put away all this other crap possibly the rest would follow. I spent time in Mombasa, Kenya and for folk so behind the times they were beyond ethically good, but very polite and were easy to understand and a character equal to anyone. Yes they dark but color doesn't matter it is about humanity. I'm personally tired of all of the racal slurs I have to deal with on a regular basis and the majority of it comes for our black neighbors. I say get over it already and stop being frigging sticks in the mud! I'm orginally from Texas and I live in the Northeast and well there ain't no difference here and what you said it must be a conspiracy :rolleyes:

    This is also the same moron that met with and invited Al-assad to the U.S., not to mention her support of affirmative action and "immigration rights".
    And the only reason she won her district was because Enron got deep in her pockets and supported her campaign because the incumbent refused to bend to their will.


    But I suppose liberals consider her much more in line with "Mainstream America" than conservatives.

    I agree with her on Dar Fur, the UN and certain human rights areas, aside from that she's a unrepentant leftist who scares the hell out of me on other policies. BUT..

    That is what successful politics and life is about; working together with people whom sometimes you don't really like and would ordinarily have nothing to do with.
