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...

Unions Get Health Care Bribe Too!

Unions scored a $60 billion a year reduction on their health care taxes for the next 8 years, while the rest of us will get to foot the bill for this. First we had all the corrupt underhanded deals just to get 58 Senators on board...then there was the Louisiana Purchase where Landreau got a $300 billion bribe "for Katrina Damage"...then came the "Cornhusker Kickback" where Nebraska received a permanent exemption from Medicare payments.

Now, Mr. Obama has given into union leaders and granted them a $60 billion a year in tax breaks for union members that the rest of us will have to foot the bill for. This back room deal brokered last night at the White House, is yet another corrupt deal in this administration's campaign to legally seize the health care system of this country.

Government can't run VA hospitals on anything even approaching efficiency, yet Mr. Obama insists on the lie that his administration can save money. So once again we're reminded about the lie Mr. Obama campaigned upon in 2008 that all health care negotiations would be open in held before C-SPAN. This deal was negotiated in the dead of night, behind closed doors where yet another Democratic Party Constituency is given special treatment.

Two things that may help us through this mess:

Never be surprised at what they do. They're operating at their normal competency. They're doing what they're hard-wired to do: screw the American people.

Pray fervently for the 2010 election. It may be our last and best hope.

Don't we feel better now?
