Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Employment Trends In Recessions

Via interesting graph on the last few recessions, as well as an average of the same. It's rather disconcerting. They show that perhaps unemployment will go deeper, and last longer than any other time in the past 50 years. If this holds true, we are looking at unemployment rates that are comparable to the Depression of the late 1920's and 1930's.

Please bear with me as I learn how to publish pictures/graphs, etc. I'm rather new at this.
