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: It's His Policies, Not His Race

People are upset about Mr. Obama's policies and many, if not most, don't give a damn about his race.  Yet, when the Racers attempt to equate oposition to Mr. Obama to racism, they're merely trying to shout down debate.  Tony Katz hammers Racer Contessa Brewer on this on MSNBC.

Here's the money Quotes:  
CONTESSA BREWER, MSNBC HOST: That’s what a lot of people are saying it’s not a laughing matter. They say that there are questions about him, not because there really are questions about where he is born, but because he is black. […]

KATZ: But this whole idea of race, you know what, if there are birthers and they’re all crazy and silly for actually wanting to see a birth certificate, well let’s talk about the racers, the people who believe that everything is a conspiracy about race. It’s Obama’s race that people want to see the birth certificate. It’s Obama’s race that people don’t like the out of control spending. It’s not his race. It’s that he’s awful. The policies are terrible. ObamaCare is a lie and a failure. QE1 and QE2 didn’t work. It’s crazy.
KATZ: They didn’t say it was race. Everything that comes out of the racers, and they exist – the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Huffington Post”, some people at your very network, and you know I enjoy having these conversations with you. They are so focused. Everything is about race. It’s not about race. When we talk about Obama and the policies, it’s about the awful policies. It’s about the inability to bring down debt. It’s about the inability to tackle the deficit. And when everybody says, “Oh, they’re just after this because of race,” it is nonsense. It’s a way to stop people from having conversation. Political correctness at its worst. If we want to talk about the issues, let’s talk about the issues.  {emphasis is mine, RAV}
That's it, by constantly using the race card, liberals devalue it to meaninglessness.  It's not about Mr. Obama's race, who friggin' cares about that?  Not me.  What I care about is the simple fact that his economic policies, and those of his party are sending this country down the path of financial ruin.  We simply cannot continue to spend money we don't have.  In the past 4 years of Democratic control of Congress and since 2009, of the presidency, they have added 1/3  to nearly 1/2 to the debt.  That's unacceptable.  It took 225 years to reach 7 trillion dollars.  Put only 4 years for Democrats to nearly double that figure.  Four years!

That's utterly unsustainable.  I genuinely hope that Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling because we simply cannot continue to spend money we don't have.  It's time to pass a balanced budget amendment.  Most states must balance their budgets so must our national government.  In that balanced budget amendment, there must also be provision for a line item veto.
