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...

Public Option indirect route to Government Controlled Health Care

Yet another Democratic Congressman (this Muslim Keith Ellison of MN) tells all. He unequivocally states that the so called public option in HR 3200, as well as other bills is merely window dressing on the route to outright government control of health care.

WURZER: Politics is the art of compromise.
WURZER: So how are you all gonna compromise?
REP. ELLISON: Most of us are co-authors of HR676, which is a single-payer bill so we feel like we’ve already compromised. I think that the reality is the public option has been scored by the Congressional Budget Office as saving $150 billion, so this actually helps deal with the fiscal responsibility issues…It offers choice, which is a good thing…
ESKOLA: Isn’t the public option really just a step towards the single payer that you want so much?
REP. ELLISON: Yes but the reality is that for many people that’s not what it is.

This along with Barney Franks bald statement last spring, give you exactly what the Democrats want most. Control over your health, and more importantly, the ability to deny health care to those they deem unessential, or unnecessary. In other words, if you don't do what the government wants, you "don't get none"
