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...

Rasmussen Poll: 54% Oppose Health Care Overhaul

From Rasmussen Poll:

Now that the Senate Finance Committee has passed its version of health care reform, 42% of voters nationwide favor the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and down four from the week before.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% are opposed to the plan.

This health care reform drama is like a bad smell you can't quite get out of your shoes.

When, oh when, will it just die and go away?

When Congress wakes up next fall and there has been a massive upheaval after the election. I suspect that Dem's will be turned out of office in large numbers, though I suspect that Repub's won't be the beneficiaries...I think that there will be a record number of independents or Conservative Party Candidates elected. (conservative doesn't mean religious idjit either, the Conservative party doesn't have the "religious right" baggage the GOP has now) Another party that may do well is the Libertarian Party. Those are at the moment the only real options, unless the "Tea Party" emerges as a genuine party.
