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...

Sarkozy to Obama: Don't Be Naive

With Major Media in the tank for Mr. Obama, we have to go to Canada's National Post in order to get a measured read of what the world really thinks of present occupant in the Whitehouse.

Here are the Headlines:

Obama: “We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth.”

Sarkozy: “We live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.”

While American media outlets swooned about about how brilliant Mr. Obama's speech was, the rest of the world wasn't quite so impressed. Neither was our oldest ally. (Remember France was the FIRST country to recognize the independence of the United States, as well as actually sending troops and supplies to further that goal)

The rest of Sarkozy’s speech was, on the whole far different:

“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.

“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.

“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.

The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.

“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.

Additionally, Mr Sarkozy has several times in the past called Mr. Obama's goal of world-wide nuclear disarmament “naive.”
