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...

Occupy Wall Street: A Failure to Communicate

The MSM is making another huge mistake. They are continually presenting the OWS movement in a 'positive' light...while all across the country, there have been rapes (Boston, NY, Baltimore, SF, SD...), murders (SLC, SF), racist rants (NY, LA...etc) and assaults (pretty much all of them)...while over the past two years, the Tea Party has been painted as violent, racist whites who hate poor people...yet, the OWS crowds are demanding that vendors give them free food and drink and get their stores and food cards damaged or destroyed. The vast majority of Americans are peacable, law abiding citizens, who don't look well upon those who want something for nothing. That seems to be what the OWS movement wants. They want a free ride, without having to be resopnsible for their own short-sightedness. At first, they seemed to want forgiveness for taking on massive student loan debt...but not accepting responsibility for studying course work that would lead to a useful career. There are numberless blogs that are responding to this, but here's the deal, if you major in social science, you need to be prepared to work in retail and the hospitality industry. It's that simple. There are very few jobs in the NGO/Government that you are prepared for...and only so many jobs for the thousands of useful idiots who want the "life of Reiily" without having to work hard for it... Capitalism works...while the welfare/regulatory state will eventually bankrupt itself. Just take a hard look at the EU...the PIIGS are bankrupt, and taking down the entire EU with them...that's our fate in a few short years (2015 is my guess). So...quit freeloading and get a damn job.
