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...

Obama's Poll Numbers Since SOTU Address

Someone who has even more time on their hands has taken the time to put together this graph showing agregate polls on Mr. Obama and his policies since the State of teh Union address. The "bounce" he got from the address has vanished. Now we're able to see just what the country thinks about his policies...and it's not pretty. From what I can see, it's basically a repudiation of this agenda. We won't know for sure until this November. If the Democratic Party loses as badly at the polls as I expect, then it's a complete repudiation. 9 months will give us the answer.

As it is, Dem's in leadership positions have been spending a lot of time trying to reasure their minions that they won't be hurt at the polls trying to "stay the course" which is what Mr. Obama intends to do.
