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...

Rules for Barack's Bullshit Bingo

I received this in an email and thought it was funny enough to post:


1. Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, prepare your "Bullshit Bingo" card by drawing a square.  I find that 5" x 5" is a good size -- and dividing it into columns --five across and five down. That will give you 25 1-inch blocks.

2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
  • Restored our reputation
  • Strategic fit
  • Let me be clear
  • Make no mistake
  • Back from the brink
  • Signs of recovery
  • Out of the loop
  • Benchmark
  • Job creation
  • Fiscal restraint
  • Win-win
  • Affordable health care
  • Previous Administration
  • Greed on Wall Street
  • At the end of the day
  • Empower (or empowerment)
  • Touch base
  • Mindset
  • Corporate greed
  • Ballpark
  • Game plan
  • Leverage
  • Inherited as in "I inherited this mess"
  • Relief for working families (alternate - "unprecedented")

3. Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout "BULLSHIT!"

Testimonials from past satisfied "Bullshit Bingo" players:

"My attention span during speeches has improved dramatically." - David D., Florida
"What a gas! Speeches will never be the same for me after my first win." -Bill R., New York City
"The atmosphere was tense in the last speech as 14 of us waited for the fifth box." - Ben G., Denver
"The speaker was stunned as eight of us screamed "BULLSHIT!" for the third time in two hours." - Harry A, Chantilly
"This is the most fun I have ever had with my pants up!" -Robert H., Portland
