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...

The Disease is the Cure?

I've been hearing over the past few months that Keynesian economic policies of massive public spending will get the country out of the recession that we're in, after all it worked for the Great Depression...NOT.  The advent of World War 2 is what solved the world wide depression.  While it included massive public spending plans that spending was on specific items, weapons etc, necessary to win the war.  The record breaking "stimulus" package that was passed one year ago was based on this theory...and has failed to what it was intended to do, stimulate the economy.  Passage of another smaller bill that does the same thing, yet titling it as a "jobs bill" will no more stimulate the economy than last years bill did.
