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...

federal government to take over all of health care

On MSNBC, Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY), a supporter of Mr. Obama's health care plans, finally state's the ultimate goal of "health care reform." Ed Morrissy of has the link to the interview by Joe Scarborough on Morning Cup of Joe.

During the interview, Weiner actually states several times the goal is to eliminate private health care. When you tie this into the fact that the creation of Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation, the board that will decide whether or not you deserve health care once you reach a certain age, or if you have a terminal illness (this board was created under the "stimulus" bill signed into law last spring).

(copy & paste this

This admission, along with what Rep Barney Frank (D MA) said last spring, is a naked attempt of the government to directly control 15% of the economy. I'm not wholey certain that this is constitutional. Under the 10th Amendment, I have come to the conclusion that this is something that should be reserved to the states, as in TennCare (Tennessee), and MassCare (Massachussetts), both of which are in severe financial straights. Neither of which actually reduce costs. In fact, In Mass, costs have risen almost exponentially.

This is what we have to look forward to, higher costs, immense deficits without end, and eventually bankruptcy as a nation. The alternatives are tax rates above 50% of gross income, something which will wipe out our way of life. Now is the time to put a stop to the madness and get some fiscal responsibility out of Washington.
