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 is a Hypocrit: Chapter 934

In 2007 and 2008, Senator Barack Obama called George W. Bush unpatriotic for wanting to raise the debt ceiling.

During the campaign debates with John McCain, he promised a net spending cut...yet since then, he as president has added more than $5,000,000,000,000.00 to the national debt.

Now, in late 2011, he wants another $1,000,000,000,000.00...Mr. Obama, WHERE DID THE MONEY GO? The Democratic party's economic agenda has failed. Our national debt has passed 100% of our GDP. We've run out of other's people's money, and it's time to not just balance the budget, but cut it to the bone. Across the board spending cuts to ALL line items. 40% minimum to just balance the budget. That doesn't mean we'd be able to pay down the debt, just to service it. To service it we'd need to raise government income either by raising taxes (that would throttle the economy even worse than now) or by eliminating whole-sale governmental regulations that are killing the ability of businesses to grow. 

Eliminate several of the government departments that really have no use other than as jobs for SEIU members...Education, HUD, HHS, Commerce, "Homeland Security" (isn't that the province of the Dept of Defense?); as well as various agencies that are killing the economy through bureaucratic regulations, EPA, DEA, ATF, etc.  Most of these agencies have vastly over-reached their mandates and are actively injuring the ability of our economy to expand.

The Time has come for Congress to be swept clean.  Pass constitutional amendments that limit the time Congress may sit in sessionas well as term limits.  If we can limit the number of terms any president may hold office, why in the hell don't we treat Congress the same way.  Many of the bullshit bills passed these days are done by Congressmen and Senators trying to justify their inflated salaries and to pay of political constiuencies (See ObamaCare, TARP and the "Stimulus Package" that wasn't--right there is $3 trillion dolllars in wasted spending alone)...Mr. Obama, Mr. Reid and Nancy Pelosi are all responsible for the past four years of wasteful spending...but as Harry Truman once said, "the buck stops here" and here is Barack Obama's desk.
