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...

Gas Profiteers

As the liberal meme on high gas prices has become those horrible profiteers...i.e. Gas Companies, the real profiteer is the governments of various levels...

Here's a graph that shows how much profit is actually made from each gallon of gas.  Profit isn't a dirty words, taxation is, especially when billions are wasted on useless projects.
