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...

ObamaCare Is A Failure

Evan Thomas, former editor of Newsweek has stated on 'Inside Washington', a news show that reviews the previous week's political maneuverings that ObamaCare is a disaster.

Nancy Pelosi, with a huge veto proof majority in Congress passed this bill 10 months ago with only 7 votes to spare.  This week, the new GOP led US House of Representatives passed repeal by 55 it's up to the Senate where 23 Democratic Senators are up for reelection in 2012 to act.  I'm betting Harry Reid won't bring it to a vote, especially has a number of Democratic Senators have begun voicing their ambivalence to the monstrosity that was rammed through Congress on a straight party vote.

If you look at the polls, the public likes it even less as time goes on.  We were told repeatedly that this abortion of a bill would reduce the costs of health care...that was a lie.  We were told that once it was passed and we could see what was in it, we'd like it...that was a lie.  We were told that it would be good for the country...that was a lie.  I hope that Congress will repeal this thing and start over, though I doubt that will happen.
