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 Calls Upon Spanish Government To Stop Spending...WHAT?

It's hard not to laugh about this, but our fearless leader, Barack Obama has spoken to the Spanish Premier about the Spanish goverment debt...just about the only thing that comes to mind is..."isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?"  (give over on your racist comments, it's a very old saying)...The Wall Street Journal reports that, 
US President Barack Obama spoke to Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero Tuesday on the debt crisis and discussed reforms needed to rescue the Spanish economy, the White House said.  The conversation was the latest move by Obama in the European crisis, and White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Washington would do whatever was needed to stop the eurozone turmoil from stifling the US recovery.  The leaders .discussed the importance of Spain taking resolute action as part of Europe.s effort to strengthen its economy and build market confidence,. Gibbs said in a statement.  The president expressed the support of the United States for those efforts. The president also conveyed his best wishes to King Juan Carlos for a speedy recovery from his recent surgery..
This is from a man who has in the past 2 years added almost as much to the debt as all of his predecessors combined.  Now that's the height of hypocrisy...
Yesterday the Obama administration announced a 7.4% hike in its deficit projection for 2010 to $1.26 trillion. Spain’s entire economy, the nation’s gross domestic product, is $1.6 trillion.  The national debt Obama is running in one year is roughly 79% of Spain’s entire economy.  Hope for change.
Yep, I'm hoping for a about the CBO announcing that after less than 7 weeks, the cost of Obamacare is $115,000,000,000.00 MORE than projected...remember November!
