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...

Yet Another Little Noticed Provision Of Health Care Reform

In yet another little noticed provision of the recently passed health care law that will have the effect of stiffling job growth, small businesses , which have historically been the source of most jobs in this country, will now have little incentive to grow. The provisions found within the new law provides a 50% tax credit to those small companies offering health insurance coverage that employ less than 10 workers, and who on the average, earn less than $25,000 a year. This new tax credit is reduced on a sliding scale as more employees are hired.
“If a business can make a decision to substitute capital for labor – say, contract the procedure out or automate it – I believe [losing the tax credit] will play an important part in the reluctance to hire,” Villarreal said, adding, “It’s puzzling that we have this perverse incentive not to have businesses grow by not encouraging them to hire additional workers.”
This will have a very chilling effect upon small businesses that have been the engine for economic growth in America. That chilling effect will mean far fewer new hiring and far fewer jobs. Thanks Mr. Obama, thanks for killing off our chances of getting the economy back on track...or was that his objective after all?


After all, both parties are why we're in this mess now.
