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...

Over the Memorial Day weekend… the long hot summer began…

By JP Bender

Miami Beach, Florida, became a war zone during urban weekend. People claimed to the press they were scared for their lives. Poet “Da Real One” was gunned down in front of Miami Poetry Café.

Violent crime exploded in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, when police received reports of five armed robberies, a stabbing, a shooting and an incident involving a shotgun being pointed at a security guard during a nearly eight-hour period in the city early Sunday and Monday.

Unruly crowds shut down a Nashville, Tennessee Water Park. Police had to shut down Wave Country Monday during its opening weekend as a large crowd became unruly at long lines in the intense heat.

Questions continue to swirl as police investigators search for whoever fired shots during one of many fights in uptown Charlotte, North Carolina, early Sunday morning.

At a rib fest in Charlotte, New York, fights involving about 50 youths broke out late Monday night and police had to clear the area after arresting many people.

The Long Island, New York police department says it had to call for backup to quell a beach melee involving hundreds of people that spilled out onto the streets and a nearby bus depot. Long Beach police say they are investigating the incident. There was no immediate word on arrests.

But I guess we should forget about these incidents, because the mainstream media wants to continue to cover and report on the unrests in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iran. Everything in America is OK. Lets focus on foreign problems. The incidents at home seem only to be a form of diversity in America and after all, we have a democrat in the White House.

Well to me, this diversity is yet another expression of disrespect for the laws of this country and a complete contempt for the constitution. The current administration wants foreign countries to form a democracy, while it tolerates chaos in our own country. This is a violation of our basic human rights in America. When you analyze this, and add it to the list of other government violations, you can easily become depressed and angry.

Our government is taking our rights away at an alarming pace. They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the Internet. They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns. They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers. They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.

Where can the American electorate turn? The democrats are not the solution, as they are the problem. The current leadership of the Republicans does not offer any solutions, just public displays of crying before the cameras. The current crop of GOP candidates is a joke. As a harbinger, this could be the beginning of a long – hot – summer.
