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: 733 Exemptions So Far...

To date, the Dept of Health and Human Services has granted a whopping 733 exemptions.  The Washington Examiner is reporting that,
 ...the Department of Health and Human Services has issued hundreds of waivers to companies so they could be saved from the Obamacare legislative "fix." Now, we're told that an astonishing 733 companies and politically connected unions at last count threatened to drop their health care coverage for employees altogether if they did not receive a reprieve from the law.
The fact that any exemptions have been granted to date is a sure sign of corrupt process.  Most of those exemptions were granted to unions, or large contributors to the 2008 Obama campaign.  That's the problem.  If you aren't politically connected, you get screwed by the system...fortunately, for the rest of us, this law has been ruled as being unconstitutional.
