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's Accomplishment's

Via JamieWearingFool,

Barack Obama, with the strong assistance of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (and with the willing aquiesence of the GOP Congressional leadership) has managed to destroy the credit rating of America.
Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's says it has downgraded the United States' credit rating for the first time in the history of the ratings.

The credit rating agency says that it is cutting the country's top AAA rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said late Friday that it is making the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress on Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country's debt situation.
A source familiar with the discussions said that the Obama administration believes S&P's analysis contained "deep and fundamental flaws."
It took the nation 200+ years to build that credit rating...and jsut 4 years of reckless Democratic Party control of first Congress (2007) and then the White House (2008) to wipe it out.  Thanks Obama.
