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 Votes Present on Job Creation

This week Mr. Obama had the opportunity to launch a huge job creating business...instead he voted present.  An oil pipeline is being proposed to extend from Canada to Texas oil refineries.  This  would create thousands of jobs...instead, Mr. Obama, voted present by booting'>">booting the decision on this until 2013.

President Obama faced a tough political decision this  week on the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada. He could order the  State Department to approve it, thus alienating his environmental activist  supporters, or he could kill the pipeline, thus angering his union  allies.

Obama chose to do what he had done 130 times while he  was in the Illinois state Senate. He voted present.

The State Department announced Thursday that it would  begin developing a second, redundant environmental impact statement for the  1,700-mile pipeline that traverses six states on its route from Alberta, Canada,  to Houston, Texas. This buys Obama time well past November 2012. The first  environmental assessment, three years in the works, was completed in August.  This second assessment will take at least as long the first.

This president isn't serious about changing the dire economic situation this country is in.  Instead he's trying to raise a billion dollars so buy the 2012 election.
