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...

Without Net Connection Once Again

I am temporarily without broadband yet again...another attempt by one of my neighbors to get "free" cable, this time he ended up in the hospital after suffering from a (mild?) electrical burn....LOL

Unfortunately for us in the apartment building, we're without cable/internet until at least monday, Dec. posting will be rather sparse...this is getting really old.

I know your pain. I have been without Internet on occasion, and it stinks.

We'll be waiting patiently for your return, Rich!

Try living in the rural "outback" we loving call our Ozark hide-away. We have three (3)different ISP's on three different units and each is a finiky as a maiden aunt. You have our complete sympathy.

Our latest, the 5G program from Verizon, on the lap top will get a review as soon as it works dependably. So far, it's as quick as hard wire broadband but has a quirky set-up. Keep your chin up and continue the good work.

Sad thing is....I live in an apartment where the majority are...innercity types, trying to escape to the burbs...and many want something for nothing. This latest attempt landed the dumbshit in the hospital with low grade electrical burns...he only shut down my building not the entire complex.

I can only hope that they'll stop...NOW! Lesson learned? I doubt it.
