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 Administration's Rules

After having watched this administration in operation over the past 15 months, I now believe that they are using the following "rules" as guidelines towards any one who opposes them:
  1. ...Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
  2. ...The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people.
  3. ...The third rule is: Whereever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.
  4. ...the fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
  5. ...the fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.
  6. ...the sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.
  7. ...the seventh rule is: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
  8. ...the eighth rule: Keep the pressure on.
  9. ...the ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
  10. ...The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
  11. ...The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.
  12. ...The twelth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
  13. ...The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. -- P.126-129  Alinski's Rules For Radicals
Ever since last spring when the first stirrings of opposition to their agenda, the Obama Administration has followed these basic tenents against what has become the Tea Party Movement.  All along this administration has attempted first to ridicule it (i.e. "tea baggers"), then to label it as a "violent right wing movement", followed by the final rule above.

Unfortunately, just about all the violence has stemmed from SEIU thugs assaulting various people in the Tea Party Movement...most recently in New Orleans where a
female political operative named Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend, Joe Brown, were attacked and seriously injured by a vicious group of crazed cowards who shrieked insults while pouncing. After the pummeling, the petite woman and her boyfriend were left, collectively, with a compound leg fracture, a concussion, a broken nose and broken jaw. Here’s part of the police report:

Then of course there is the case of Kenneth Gladney in St. Louis, MO  who was attacked by purple shirt wearing SEIU thugs, here's a video of that assault:

So far, in the past 15 months...all of the political violence has stemmed from the left, not the right, despite the legacy media and the Obama Administration's attempts to frame it otherwise.
