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 Cut Small Business Admin Budget By 45%

For a president who claims to be "pro-business" Mr. Obama's budget guts the Small Business Administration by more than 45%.  His proposed budget for the SBA will be a mere $985 million for 2012.  That's well down from the $1.8 billion the SBA was budgeted in 2010.  This stands at odd to the speeches he's given over the past several months as well as the SOTU address last month.
