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...

Gee...Yah Think?


As I have long suspected a recent survey of employers across the country, 87% of employers would reduce the benefits they offer to their employees. My employer has a Blue Cross/Blue Shield equivalent (they're self insured) health insurance plan that would be eliminated if the proposed "Health Insurance Reform" is enacted into law as it stands in HR 3200 or any of it's Democratic analogs.

-38% will increase prices
-30% will REDUCE the number of employees they have
-27% will REDUCE compensation/salaries
with the balance accepting the screwing that Congress is going to inflict upon the country.

It just goes to show you that HR 3200 will infact reduce the number of people using private health insurance and vastly increase those who are forced by the government to accept the rationing offered through government supported health insurance.
