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...

This is Sustainability?

Via Vodkapundit:

Since Obama has taken office ….

[through Q2 2012 for comparative purposes]

–> For every $1 added to the economy, we’ve added more than $3 in debt

–> added $5.23 trillion in debt vs. $1.68 trillion to the economy

–> 50% increase in debt vs. 12% increase in economic output

Total Public Debt:

$10,626T [Jan 20, 2009]

$15,856T [Jun 30, 2012]

–> $5.23 trillion increase in debt
[source: Treasury Dept]
As Stephen says...this is "sustainability?"  How in the hell can Democrats justify this kind of spending?  Not terribly long ago, Mr. Obama said it was unpatriotic of George Bush to add $4 Trillion dollars to the debt...over 8 years.

WTF do you call adding almost $6 trillion dollars to the debt in just over 3  years?
