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...

If This Is Economic Recovery, Where Are The Jobs?

Major media keeps talking about the recovery...and how the economy is one the road to recovery.  If this is the case...then where are the jobs?  My wife and I have been sending out an average of 50-60 resumes each, each week.  We've long since begun looking for employment outside of the metro-Baltimore/Washington DC area.  Yet, with well over 400 resumes out, collectively, we've only had one phone interview...that has yet to bear any fruit.

Think about that.  Just one phone interview.  We're both educated and have at least 10 years of management experience under our belts with 20 or so years of total industry experience (I have 20 years in restaurants, 10 years in cabinetry, my wife has 24 years in retail and 17 of that in management positions) yet, no-one is hiring.

We'd move just about anywhere, excepting the failed economic states of Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Illinois or our own expense, if only we could find work.  But, the Obama Adminstration wants to tell us that "all is well."

However, pretty much all the economic indicators are showing just the opposite...I'm worried, and you should be too.
