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's Speech

"They talk to me like a dog..."


Now, he wants to spend another $50,000,000,000.00 on infrastructure...but then they were supposed to spend $150,000,000,000.00 from the stimulus package on infrastructure...what happened to that money?  I guess it went down the sewer just like the rest of it did.  Is this spending going to be offset by cuts elsewhere?  Or are we just going to borrow MORE money we don't have, and make our great-great grandchildren pay for it.  Mr. Obama, this sort of Keynesian economics just doesn't work.  Didn't you understand when your economic advisor, Christine Romer, admitted as much in her farewell speech?  I guess not.  This is what happens when you have a president who has never actually had to make a payroll, much less actually live on a budget.  
"It's easy to be liberal when you're spending other people's money," Margret Thatcher.
But it's not going to be much longer when the money runs out...what do we do then?  Who will bail us out?  This insane spending spree must stop now.

DHOTUS: “...powerful interests that have been setting the agenda in Washington for a long time, and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true.”

The Diversity Hire, overwhelmed by a workload he was never prepared for, desperately returns to casting himself as a Victim of Those Racists. But his race-card has been maxed out. So, "like a dog" will just have to stand in.

During these instances (and there will be many more to come, increasing in frequency and intensity) it is not considered wise to approach the Diversity Hire with any expectation of proof for these vile accusations. They are known to snap and lash out. And file an EEO complaint the next day.

Better to scratch them behind their ears and make cooing noises. Then give them a pat on the head and say "good boy!" in reassuring tones.


I see why Obama reached for the dog simile - he's been treated like one his entire life. He invited it, traded off of it, and at some point forgot that the path to the Presidency would one day involve the responsibilities of a President.

Time for Barack to go back on vacation?
