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...

Time to End NEA Funding

The time has come to end all funding for NEA, PBS & NPR. If these organization can't operate without public funding then the time has come for them to be tossed on the dustbin of history.

I used to be a huge supporter of both NPR and PBS...but then in the early 1990's, their left/center stance...took a SHARP turn to the left. They just haven't leaned left, they have become far left in their reporting and editorials. Through 8 years of Mr. Bush's presidency, 90% of the stories aired on NPR and PBS were anti-administration.

On the other hand, since January 20th, 90%+ of their stories have been pro-Obama administration. This raises a concern, especially if the FCC reimposes the "fairness" doctrine...with that doctrine be imposed, not just on AM Talk Radio, but upon NPR/PBS as well? NOT!

Then there is the NEA...which has been shown to be, not just pro-Obama, but many of the organizations that participated in the NEA/Sargent/Buffy Wicks conference call, recently (in the past week) received millions of dollars in "stimulus" funds. This AFTER those organizations and began producing "art" in support of Obama Administration's agenda...

Therefore, I submit, that it's time to end public funding for the all facets. End the dole for Public Radio, Television and the Arts. If they cannot at least break even, then they obviously have no "business" being in the business of art.
