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...

Blame It On Rio

Mr. Obama went to Copenhagen to "win" one for his "hometown" and failed miserably. The substance of the speaches Mr. & Mrs. Obama gave pivoted on themselves. "Give Chicago the Olympics because you like me/us". It was dumb, here they had an audience of Euro-trash, the kind of people liberal far-left in America admires most, and they could only muster 18 votes.

Didn't we have matters of far more import here in America that demanded his attention? How about unemployment topping 9.8%. How about decisions to make in TWO wars? How about his attempt to sieze control of health care? How about his attempt to utterly wreck the economy with "cap and trade."? No, he gambled and lost on a side show.
