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 Records

Mr. Obama has set a number of records in the 32 months since he was elected president. Here there are:

Unfortunately these aren't records to be proud he attempts to turn America into a 2nd world country...we're very nearly there.  Tonight, he asked (demanded really) Congress to give him another "stimulus package"...which is an admission of sorts, that the 1st one failed miserably. 

The classic definition of insanity is torepeatedly continue doing an action expecting to get a different answer...but getting the same result as the 1st time around.  Borrowing $300 billion dollars to give to states and municipalities so they can avoid layoffs isn't creating jobs.  It's the opposite...government doesn't create jobs, business does...and government isn't either efficient or nimble enough to react well to adverse economic climates...such as today.  Government can only place a brake on business, through heavy handed regulations (such as the Obama administration has implemented.).  This has the effect of detering business from either hiring or spending on new equipment or construction...

Thanks will you leave us alone?  Go home already.
