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 To Invest $2 Billion on 5,000 Energy Jobs

In the vein of the Spanish "green jobs" boondoggle wherein that government spent roughly $800,000.00 on subsidizing "green jobs", the Obama Administration will invest $2,000,000,000.00 on a "green jobs" program here.  That's a much better deal than the Spanish got, and runs  about $392,000.00 per job here.  Unfortunately, many of those jobs will be temporary...
In the short term, construction will create approximately 1,600 [temporary] jobs.
That's not terribly good investment
