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 Needs More Power?

While most of the time, I find Glenn Beck  to be a buffoon of the worst sort, every  once in a while, he does get things right.  Please watch this video.

If he's right, then literally, the fate of the Republic is at stake. I'm hoping he's wrong. In "Liberal Facism", Jonah Goldberg talks about totalitarian aspects of Liberal ideology...and now, we have mainstream liberal politicians calling for dictatorship.  Congress isn't broken, what's broken are Liberal's desires to dictate what you can and cannot do, not just publicly, but inside your home. 

It's bad enough that on average, every single American commits (however unknowingly) 3 serious felonies a day...but, now, leading liberals are calling for the suspension of the Constitution and rule by executive fiat.  What's next?  Punitive arrest of those who oppose the will of The One?  This is a very slippery slope that we're heading for...

UPDATE:  Jackson is being pounded on both the left,
Debbie Halvorson, his likely 2012 primary Democratic challenger, said their shared district’s residents do not want “a do-nothing politician who is looking to get a quick headline.”

“In Rep. Jackson’s entire congressional career, he has never introduced a single jobs bill,” Halvorson said. “Now, he’s calling on the president to suspend the Constitution? As a representative of the people, you don’t give up when you hit a roadblock and throw the Constitution out the window — you keep working to get something done.”
and the right,
Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh issued a similarly harsh rebuke. On his Facebook page, Walsh wrote, “Jesse Jackson Jr., you asked Obama to declare a jobs state of emergency, bypass Congress, and take action by himself? If you want a dictator and state run jobs program, you might be happier living in North Korea with Kim Jong Il.” “Contact my district office if you need to expedite your passport,” Walsh snarked.
Sometimes...being stupid just doesn't pay.
